It appears that the Japanese fans of the South Korean boy band iKON will have more of the group as its talent management agency YG Entertainment announced that the group will have an additional concert date in the second leg of their Japanese tour.
According to the agency, the iKON will be having another concert schedule at the Yoyogi National Gymnasium in Tokyo on October 26. Due to this, the group will be performing in a total of 16 concerts at over six cities nationwide.
The group’s second Japanese leg tour will be starting in the city of Chiba on September 10 to 11, Soompi reports. Their next stop will be Nagoya (September 24 to 25) followed by Osaka (October 5 to 6), Kobe (October 8), Fukuoka (October 10), and Tokyo.
Meanwhile, the group’s fan base iKONICS have recently expressed their outrage towards YG Entertainment after the agency recently announced that their rookie girl band Black Pink will be having a show titled “Black Pink TV”. According to the fans, iKON appeared completely neglected.
In a report by All KPop, the fans accused the agency of having incompetence in terms of prioritizing their artists. They added that having a variety show for the group is supposed to be a tradition for YG artists but it appears that the group was totally left out.
iKON was formed by YG Entertainment in 2015 and was first introduced in the reality show “WIN: Who is Next”. Their debut album “Welcome Back” has sold over 270,000 albums nationwide.
