Barely three months after wrapping up the Singapore leg of their 2018 Continue Tour, iKON was back in town to perform at Resorts World Theatre as part of Samsung’s Unleash Next Gen Bold event yesterday evening (21 Feb).
The private event saw over 1,500 lucky iKONICS in attendance, where they had the opportunity to experience the new Samsung Galaxy S10 series while getting upclose and personal with their favourite idol group. Besides performing three of their hit singles ‘Love Scenario’, ‘Killing Me’ and ‘Bling Bling’, the K-pop septet also sat down for a short interview with the hosts where they indulged fans by showing off their best selfie poses, breaking into a floss dance battle and more!
For those who weren’t able to make it, here’s a recap of the epicness that went down.
#1 Who did the floss dance better?
FYI, if you’re a fan of Fortnite, you’ll be thrilled to know that Samsung has made a K-pop skin modelled after iKON’s lovable maknae Chan, exclusively for those who will be purchasing the upcoming Galaxy S10 Plus. Of course, we can’t talk about Fortnite without mentioning the popular floss dance (we all know that the iKON members, especially Bobby, are super good at it). After a short dance demo by our resident muse, the rest of the members split into two teams for a floss dance-off – with Chan serving as the judge. Check out their moves!

#2 Their selfie game is strong AF.
It’s no secret that iKON adores taking selfies – just take a scroll through their individual Instagram accounts and you’ll know what we mean. So obviously we can’t leave without getting a few tips from the selfie experts, can we? Each member took turns to show off their favourite poses – from Chan’s adorable finger heart to Ju-ne channeling his inner Angry Bird – and we just can’t get over how cute they were!

#3 Wefies? No problem!
When asked about the feature they liked the most about the Galaxy S10, they confessed that it’s difficult to squeeze all seven members into the frame when taking a group shot – but thanks to its wide lens camera, they can now take wefies in ease. Using the new smartphone, the iKON members put the camera functions to the test by taking a photo with the audience. Yay, we’re in the same picture as oppas!
#4 Fans are as beautiful as… the beach?
Three words to describe iKONICs? While Ju-ne went with the politically correct answer of “Love”, Jay took one for the team by ambiguously describing fans as the Sentosa Siloso Beach because it’s “beautiful” – just like iKONICs! While it may seem like a rather aww-inducing response, we have a sneaking suspicion that it’s to promote their upcoming show at Skechers Sundown Festival, which would be held at none other than the sandy shores this April. So much for being subtle, Jay!
#5 Flexing the S10 like–
At the end of the night, the iKON members were presented with their very own Galaxy S10 phones. While the rest of the audience looked on in envy, the ever-so-cheeky Bobby teased fans by jokingly showing off his new treasured possession.

Okay, you got us, Bobby – we’re off to preorder the phones.
