Here's Why Some Fans Think iKON Is The Next BIGBANG
Karen Jane Ng
So here's the scenario: iKon is being hailed as the next Bigbang, not only by fans but even Seungri himself. Do you agree?
Here are some of the reasons why fans can't help but compare the two idol groups:
Both are hip hop groups. iKon's leader B.I. started young and is known for producing the group's music and that of other artists. Yes, just like GD.
Bobby is one of the rappers with the most unique sound. Same as his hyung Seunghyun.
They have matching skills and interests. Jay is multilingual like Seungri. He's also being called a successor of Taeyang for his dance moves. May we also add that Jinhwan's into wine like TOP?
Chan used to be scared of BI. Doesn't this remind you of Daesung and TOP?
iKon and Bigbang have similarly proven their musical versalitity by experimenting outside their genre. Just listen to "Love Scenario" and "Let's Not Fall In Love".
iKon's got the style and fiery stage presence of Bigbang that nobody else has.
Amidst all the comparison, the younger YG artists would rather pave their own way. "We often hear that we need to become a group that continues the BIGBANG hyungs‘ legacy. However, we and Yang Hyun Suk both feel that rather than become a group that continues BIGBANG’s legacy, we should search for iKON’s own color," Chanwoo said in an interview early this year.
