iKon (Korean: 아이콘), stylized as iKON, is a South Korean boy band formed in 2015 by YG Entertainment, consisting of six members: Bobby, Jinhwan, Ju-ne, Yunhyeong, Donghyuk and Chanwoo. First introduced in the reality survival show WIN: Who is Next as “Team B”, the group went on to appear in the 2014 reality survival show Mix & Match, which determined the final membership lineup of iKon. Originally a seven-piece band, B.I, departed from the group in June 2019.
Their debut studio album Welcome Back (2015), debuted atop the South Korean Gaon Album Chart, spawning the number-one singles, “My Type”, “Apology” and “Dumb & Dumber”, and three top-ten singles, “Rhythm Ta”, “Airplane” and “Anthem”. The album was a commercially success, selling over 260,000 copies in Asia, and its songs sold over 4.8 million copies, which lead the group to receive numerous accolades on major Asian music awards. From 2016 to 2017, the group released the singles “#WYD” and “New Kids: Begin”, and directed their focus on group’s first Asia tour and several Japanese tours. In 2018, their second studio album, Return, spawned the hit single “Love Scenario”, which topped the Gaon Digital Chart for a record-breaking six weeks. Their third EP, I Decide was released on February 6, 2020.
