iKON fans, also known as iKONIC, are furious after learning that YG Entertainment's rookie girl group Black Pink will be greeting fans through 'Black Pink TV'.

According to fans, a variety show in the form of 'XX TV' is something like a tradition for all YG Entertainment groups. Big Bang got close with their fans through a 'YG TV', 2NE1 with '2NE1 TV' (in which Big Bang made several appearances), WINNER also hosted a 'WINNER TV' in 2014, and now Black Pink will have their own show titled 'Black Pink TV'. 

Not only are iKON fans furious about the fact that iKON was completely skipped in the 'XX TV' series, but netizens are also pointing fingers at YG Entertainment for a supposed inability to prioritize. It seems that several recent topics have been the center of debate between YG Family fans, including CL's American single being released on Big Bang's 10th anniversary, recruiting a fan choir for Sechskies' upcoming concert, and more.

Comments include, "Poor Big Bang, WINNER, and iKON", "I'm Inner Circle, and I understand where you're coming from. Who knew Sechskies would get wrapped up in this too...", "YG is the only company that can't stand to see their artists succeed""I have nothing more to say. It's not like they're gonna listen to us...", and more. 

Do you agree with iKONIC that YG Entertainment should give iKON an 'iKON TV'?

well isnt this a more reason for IKON to work ever harder to show why their fans are right? If YG just gives into everything fans want, their stars are just going to be spoiled.

Ikon has gotten everything they've had due to their own efforts. If this is the case then PLEASE send this to Winner fans as well. B.i. And Bobby both went into SMTM3 as trainees knowing that if they did poorly YG would boot them for the humiliation. At least Mino was debuted and already had a contract. Kudos to him for going anyway to compete. YGE was the one to set up concerts/fan meets but Bobby himself was invited to infinity challenge, runningman. Ikon was also invited to Sugerman. Psy wanted Ikon in his team for Heros of Remix because he liked how fearless, fast learning, and competitive they were. Time and time again I see that those who want tirelessly without giving up to get work in shows. YG set winner up for winner tv and their friendship show, but he screwed over ikon with another survival.

Who said ikonics are mad because of Blackpink Tv ? I am around a lot ikonics on various social media and i haven't seen that . I think Ikon TV trending it's more a reminder to YG that we still need one and not to forgot us to ,you will see in twitter a lot of ikonics asking Yg for stuff about ikon but i don't see the fandom is mad about BlackPinkTV. To be honest a lot of us just want the Boys to rest cause we are afraid that they might collapse at this point. That 2nd Japan arena tour make me worried personally. While people are saying ikon is Yg's favorite ,i wonder if he will let them rest a little. Even a short break in Saipan for them wasn't a break , he filmed it and make a dvd and sold it. I mean as a fan we like to see our idols and we will buy their stuff but thruthfully i am more worried about their health. They have 2 concert time in one day and this seem will be happening in the second tour. I will be too greedy to want ikon tv now but i just expect one day it will be done for various reason because some people will know more about their personality and can see by themselves instead some people making one for them .The thing is Ikon is only touring in Asia and unless fancam it's not like we got to see them (it's not a complaint just plain fact) the remix was great we got to see them almost every week but now the party is over(besides the remix is just performance just a fat not complaint). I think now the dvd are selling well ikon season greetings and summertime ,Yg will not even do an ikon tv but will keep it like this. So i guess we will just have to rely on some v app apparition but V app is starting to ask for cash too.Anyway even though  Fans ask for stuff ,Yg will only do what he wants as always

I'm worried too. They need rest, the only thing I love about -----TV is that it's free and fans can see their favorite stars without buying the DVDs. I can buy them but it's still hard you know, that's why I do wish they did the show.......but not right now. Maybe during a hitus period.

i honestly think both groups deserve it.

After iKON came out, YG didn't give 2 shits about Winner. And now he's moving on to Blackpink. Know how ICs feel now eh?

judyi ges111 Tuesday, August 30, 2016

Same happened to Big Bang, 2ne1, Lee Hi, AKMU.....during which Big Bang made solos consistently working by themselves, 2ne1 and Lee hi was left in a rut. AKMU went to small concerts for festivals and schools.....which is like low company status. Winner was given winner tv, nice Japan concerts (although paying for the excessive DVDs are BS) beautiful albums, acting gigs that were butcherd, that other variety show for themselves. I can't complain as an ikonic but I realize that everything ikon has had on TV was due to their own efforts. Winner is probably working hard, it's YG after all, if they don't deliver what is expected they won't be a priority. I know it's hard but we must be patient. Hating on ikon is only making us ikonic NOT want to support Winner to avoid fights. We will help support u guys but you guys keep wanting to shit on ikon.

I don't bias Winner or any YG group, actually. As a non fan, I hear hardly anything about Winner (I listen to their music casually), and ALOT about iKon (whose music I can't really stand), which is why I said what I did. So what you do is none of my concern. Support your bias group, no point in supporting groups you don't like. Btw, you just "shit" on Winner by saying they don't deliver anything good, but iKon does. Hypocrisy at its best.

judyi ges111 Wednesday, September 7, 2016

I never Shit on them. Winner didn't do well selling the was just the first part of Exit anyhow, seeing how YG does things it's usually the second or third release that has something public friendly the first release its mostly for fans. I'm not saying this to diss it's just how they fared on the digital charts. Ikon gets tons of articles...yes we know but they're recycled articles it's never anything new but people just hate to hate. You don't like their music, that's fine but why must you act like a jerk and comment if you have no idea what's going on truthfully?

ges111 judyi Wednesday, September 7, 2016

Because I wanted to see how much time you would waste replying to me lol. Btw, not a troll, so don't bother trying to play that card.

Maybe iKON aren't entertaining behind the scenes...? That clip of BlackPink Behind The Scenes #001 was hilarious! probably helps that they have and Australian and Thai that have a good sense of humor, honestly they are all funny as a group and are entertaining to watch and have bonded very well together.

iisstf28 SoshiMECH Saturday, August 27, 2016

They are pretty entertaining behind the scenes but they get shy in variety actually 😂😂 sometimes they play too hard 😂😂

judyi SoshiMECH Tuesday, August 30, 2016

Just put on music and they get so hyped up they don't care who's watching

but,, ikon get so much promotion... let my babies live,,

iisstf28 Saturday, August 27, 2016

I understand what ikonics are saying but Ikon has been active and does videos for fans often while groups like BB, 2ne1 and Winner (BP too probably) don't do any of that. STILL they don't promote as much as other idol groups so why not give them Ikon TV too? Why does YG hate fans so much??😤😤😤Just give them what they ask for for once, YG. 😫😫Ikonics are like the only YG fandom that doesn't hate YG! Can he at least care about them a little? 😑😑😑I'm an Incle but I really don't see why Ikon shouldn't have Ikon TV

INtheSPIRIT iisstf28 Saturday, August 27, 2016

Thank you so much :)

iisstf28 INtheSPIRIT Saturday, August 27, 2016

YG literaly made Incles and Ikonics enemies but it really doesn't have to be that way! Lets support each other 🙌🙌🙌

judyi iisstf28 Wednesday, September 7, 2016

No we hate him. He thinks ikon can handle the stress they're putting on them constantly, we can see how tired ikon is, they're pulling through together but it looks like they're dragging one another now 😢 They need rest they need their moms and families.
