YG Entertainment's announcement that WINNER's Song Min Ho will be coming out as a guest at iKON's 2nd Japanese arena tour is infuriating many fans.

iKON will be performing in Japan on September 10th-11th in Chiba, on September 24th-25th in Aichi, on October 5th-6th in Osaka, on October 8th at Hyougo, and on October 10th at Fukuoka.

While this might mean that fans will finally get to see the Bobby-Song Min Ho song that has been long awaited for, many fans are angry that WINNER's Song Min Ho will be going along for an iKON concert. Many WINNER fans are seeing it as YG Entertainment trying to sell iKON tickets to WINNER fans, and iKON fans are upset that precious seats may fall to WINNER fans and also because while this was supposed to be an iKON concert, a WINNER member is coming to all the shows. 

Also, WINNER fans have already been incredibly upset with the label because WINNER's EXIT project, which was supposed to have 4 releases this year, only has had 'E' in February, with no updates for 'X', 'I', or 'T'. 

The decision has sparked a movement on Twitter by both Korean and international WINNER fans alike, to demand some sort of answer from YG Entertainment. 

What do you think of the situation?

Ikon and Winner are friends and Bobby and Mino have worked hard on their new track. Instead of tearing down things just freakin' support them. Be glad for what we as fans do get. You don't see this kind of complaining when other groups have a guest appearance for some of their concerts. If I lived there instead of here I'd buy a ticket and go because seeing them on stage together will be epic.

This IC-Ikonics feud is getting so old and annoying. The boys love each other, they don't get to decide when they come back, so let's just love or like or RESPECT each other and stop fighting. It's so silly to be having fanwars when the problem is within YGs management, not iKon or WINNER.

I agree with the fans. YG style is to promote little on music shows and then tour for a long time but the truth is he CANT mange two groups equally. Even though They r different for some reason he couldn't promote WINNER better. He has a reputation ( in my eyes) of always favoring someone over the other. He is good but also lacks in some important areas.

I need more Winner.  YG do your job right and fair.

As if Winner didn't promote enough as a group , now he separates them and send Mino touring with another group (who's their little brother group aka YG favs ) for 14 CONCERTS ?? makes me think that they really prepared all the albums and that they delayed it because of preparation is a lie , just like for the MADE ALBUM

"When WINNER makes a comeback there will be talk that I favor WINNER" THis is what YG said almost a year ago in October. Yeah YG we can see that you favor WINNER clearly. Seeing how you promised 3 more EP's after 'E' but decided that according to your standards WINNER didn't do well so I guess you're backing away now? what kind of bs is this? I wouldn't care if Mino was a guest on the tour if 1. WINNER had actually released all those EP's 2. This was iKON's last tour this year bc holy shit they've literally been touring since debut? This is such a slap in the face to WINNER to send on of their members on a different artist's tour for 14 whole concerts? I literally can't take this anymore YG please get your shit together you already ruined 2NE1 if you dont fix up your act with WINNER....

If YG went ahead with the EXIT project and allowed WINNER to release the "X" part of the album this wouldn't have been a problem because IC would be satisfied with WINNER getting some attention. However, since he didn't it's kind of a slap in the face to WINNER and their fans. YG set up this whole tour in Japan for IKON and pushes more for them while Mino is simply along for the ride. It isn't right to neglect WINNER like this and it isn't fair to their fans. If YG is okay with Mino being gone for a month then clearly there is no plans to release "X" anytime soon. Also, this rivalry that he fueled between IKON and WINNER is not healthy for both groups. I understand how he thought it would stimulate them to work harder but the fact is the music style between the two groups are completely different. This has caused a divide in fandoms and honestly I'm just worried that things might get awkward between the members of the two groups because people are constantly comparing them to each other. Even when WINNER made their comeback, people kept comparing them to IKON and saying that IKON was more successful than them. Even when team A won on WIN, YG didn't look satisfied. If YG continues to only promote Mino, the other members are going to eventually resent him and then your going to have another "Miss A" type situation where the members don't get along or leave.

Even tho i love YG's astist i can't bring myself to love the management!

Ok, here it goes; I'm sick of the way YG promotes WINNER. He either shoves them in variety shows or make them guests at other artists' concerts, especially on iKON shows. No! We don't want Minho guesting iKON concerts, we want him and the rest of the members doing what they're supposed to do; make music. They still have a long way to go until EXIT project is finished. They still have X, I and T sub-projects. And I believe that these sub-projects are, as awful as it may sound to some, more important than babysitting toddlers and guesting an iKON show. Sure, I enjoy their variety shows and seeing them collaborating with labelmates, but variety is NOT that important for an artist and guesting a show isn't doing the trick. They already had enough of that, they should cultivate their passion and music skills, the reason they're in a MUSIC company. It infuriates me, because they're all SO talented, they have unique voices and they have a LOT to show, especially through this very interesting project they have started together. And all he does for them is pushing them around, doing nothing... We're talking about purely unfair treatment here.
