The game schedule and rankings will be posted on Naver’s official webpage and mobile page. You can also check which sport they will be playing and who will be competing on Naver’s official webpage and mobile page when the games are being broadcasted. There is a prize lottery for those who pick a member that is most likely to win the game and leave a cheering message. Seven will receive iKON’s full debut album.

Fans expressed their excitement saying “I’m so looking forward to seeing them play sports”, “I won’t miss it for the world!”, “They look so good in sportswear.”, and “The debut album, the debut concert, and now V app broadcasting! I’ve never been happier.”

Netizen's are tired of your shit, YG



In light of the recent controversy between Mnet and iKON’s exclusion from the charts, the issue focused towards YG Entertainment’s excessive media play.

A post on Pann highlighted one of the reasonable explanation as to why Mnet decided to exclude iKON’s warm single “My Type” from their official rankings. As Mnet has stated in the past, non-promoted tracks are excluded from winning the trophy. The only artists who was excluded from the rule was Busker Busker, the winner of Mnet’s Superstar K3, while Roy Kim, an artist signed by CJ E&M, Naul, IU and other artists did not react to similar issues.

This statement led to netizens to focus on YG Entertainment’s reaction towards iKON’s exclusion from the official rankings as they accused the agency of putting out articles as deliberate media play instead.

As a response, the netizens expressed their thoughts on the controversy and revealed to have been fed up of the agency’s media play.

Rhythmic Gymnastics is becoming immensely popular in South Korea, thanks to the national "fairy" Son Yeonjae.

She has done several endorsements , appeared on various variety shows and was also an ambassador during the 2015 World University Games in Gwangju. Rhythmic All-stars is an annual gala show held in South Korea where the best gymnasts worldwide is invited to perform, and it is aired on national TV. The participants covered SNSD's Lionheart for the opening of day 2. Other than Son Yeonjae (who placed 5th in the 2012 Olympics), participants include Belarussian Melitina Staniouta (ranked world 3rd), and Russians Margarita Mamun (world 2nd). Another collaborative stage was performed with singer 알리(ALi), who is most well known as a contestant in the Masked Singer.

I'm not sure how interested Omona is in Son Yeonjae (I'm not kidding about how popular she is in South Korea though), but I thought this is quite a cute cover, and not bad considering it was probably rehearsed in one day. It's pretty amazing because this is world champions (and rivals) coming together through Kpop! They also performed their normal routines in the show, such as this, do give it a watch uwu.
