In a recent interview, iKON talked about their fellow YG labelmates BIGBANG and BLACKPINK.
When asked if they feel any pressure to fill up the empty space that BIGBANG temporarily left due to serving in the military, B.I answered, “Rather than feeling pressure because they’re serving in the army or having the fear of ruining the paths they’ve created, we are making an effort to work hard and not show an embarrassing side of ourselves.”
Concerning BLACKPINK’s success, iKON praised the group, saying, “We think BLACKPINK’s activities are very amazing. We’re not very close to them, but they’re really cool and pretty.”
iKON’s new mini album “New Kids: Continue” will be released on August 2 at 6 p.m. KST.
