iKON to appear on 'Oh Eun Young's Golden Clinic' next week, opening up about B.I leaving the team, Bobby's marriage, and more


iKON's Bobby, Junhoe, and Donghyuk will be appearing as guests on next week's broadcast of Channel A's 'Oh Eun Young's Golden Clinic'.

At the end of this week's episode of 'Oh Eun Young's Golden Clinic', which featured singer ALi, the three iKON members made an appearance during next week's preview. 

In the preview, the iKON members were seen opening up about what they went through after B.I left the team in 2019. Donghyuk was seen stating, "Even the act of going outside made me feel guilty and apologetic," while Junhoe said, "We promoted actively for 8 years as a team, but in the end, all I was left with was a feeling of emptiness."

Next, Bobby himself also addressed his marriage last year, and how he had considered leaving the team due to the pressure of the issue. He said, "The idea of a couple getting pregnant before marriage is not quite exemplary behavior."

In fact, the brief preview of next week's 'Golden Clinic' featuring the members of iKON has stirred up discussion among netizens, about whether it seems "appropriate" or not for the group members to mention such "controversial" or "private" topics on a broadcast. Some felt that "they should keep their private matters private", while others felt that "they are only talking about what they went through and that's the point of the show". 

Meanwhile, Bobby previously announced his marriage to a non-celebrity fiancée in August of last year. A month later in September, Bobby and his wife welcomed their first child.

Wait YG is actually letting them talk about this publicly?? 😳😳 And while we’re at it, let’s normalize talking about former members (and stop treating them like taboos) and shotgun marriages pls lol

For those who are saying they're shocked to see them talk publicly about B.I leaving and Bobby's child, this show is known for this and the whole point of the format is to discuss deeply. Oh Eun Young is a professional psychiatrist and renowned in Korea for it. As for YG letting them go on, I'm a but surprised as well but let's be real... After Seungri's scandal, literally everything was on a fast downhill for YG in general. iKON, Winner, AKMU... They all started to chart horribly, have very low YouTube views, low stream numbers and can't even stay on Melon chart after one full day of comeback. There's a very high chance this is it for iKON and YG is probably letting them go on for one last attempt at trying to help them out a bit to gain some traction again.
