iKON achieves all-kill within hours of releasing their warm-up debut single "My Type"
The boys of iKON have finally released their "warm-up" debut single "My Type," and they're off to a great start, reaching #1 on all major Korean music charts to achieve an all-kill within hours of the song's release!
The YG rookie group is comprised of members B.I, Bobby, Jinhwan, Junhoe, Yunhyeong, Chanwoo, and Donghyuk, and they first gained popularity in 2013 on the reality show Who Is Next: Win, where they competed for the chance to debut as YG's next boy group. After losing to Winner, they continued as trainees and appeared in the 2014 reality series Mix & Match, where B.I, Bobby, and Jinhwan were confirmed as part of iKON and the remaining members had to earn their spots in the group.
After two years of anticipation, iKON fans can finally check out the first official single from the goup, titled "My Type," below:
Within hours of the song's release, it topped the Melon, Mnet, Bugs, Olleh, Soribada, Genie, Naver, and Monkey3 charts in Korea. It is also charting in various countries around the world. Not bad for a "warm-up" single!
