Recently, iKON surprised fans by revealing they're making a comeback with a new single. Shortly after the exciting news, YG Entertainment dropped a mysterious teaser for the new release, showing a photo of red rubber bands and the date 2018.03.05. No other information was provided, heightening curiosity and anticipation for iKON's new song.
On March 1, Song Min Ho greeted fans on WINNER's Channel + (a premium channel on Naver V Live). During the live broadcast, Song Min Ho made a mistake by accidentally revealing that "Rubber Band" is the title of iKON's new song. The WINNER member realized his mistake and explained he assumed the title has been revealed since a teaser has been released earlier. He then playfully told Inner Circles to keep his mistake and iKON's new title a secret.
But you know there are no secrets in this world, especially on the web. The news quickly spread and iKON's new title has been very badly spoiled.
iKONICs started criticizing Song Min Ho for his careless mistake, and Inner Circles for spreading the title. iKONICs are also angry at Inner Circles as some apparently made fun of the title, saying, "it sounds stupid already."
Some iKON fans are even demanding an apology and showing concerns, commenting, "Why did Song Min Ho spoil iKON's title lol It totally put out the curiosity", "I'm afraid iKON might change their title because of Song Min Ho", "Apologize to B.I! How can you ruin the hard work of our Bin-ee."
What are your thoughts on the issue between iKONICs and Inner Circles?
