[Pann/Instiz] iKON's statements at Big Bang's Dome tour on the chopping block

Pann: What BI and Kim Jin Hwan said in front of Big Bang fans today

BI: Thank you for waiting for iKON's debut stage.

Kim Jin Hwan: We hope you will make memories with iKON.

Anyone else would think iKON was the star of the Dome Tour....

1. [+202, -66] Why would Big Bang fans be waiting for you ㅋㅋ

2. [+186, -71] Even 2NE1 and Winner never said things like that on Big Bang's stage. I get that YG put them up there for promotion reasons but their statements are thoughtless.

3. [+136, -174] YG artists rarely interact with artists from other companies so they have a strong family tie to each other in YG... why are fans trying to split them up? Everyone knows Big Bang is the most popular in YG but their fans act like they're above everyone else and put down junior fandoms.

4. [+86, -12] Here is a compilation of the statements iKON said at the Dome Tour. Judge for yourself. (These statements were said on the 15th while the statements above were said on the 16th)

5. [+69, -13] When GD performed at Psy's concert as a guest in the past, he said things like it's an honor, I hope you enjoy yourselves, it's exciting for me to be here, I hope to learn a lot... These kids are benefiting off of their seniors and they don't even have basic manners. Probably because they're still so young.

6. [+65, -9] Don't think that Big Bang fans = YG fans. We're already pissed off that a nugu rookie group we don't even care about is opening for Big Bang but on top of that, they're treating us like we waited for them? Family my butt, we've only ever been used by YG to promote for other artists

7. [+60, -4] At least Kang Seung Yoon or another Winner member said that he was grateful and apologetic for opening because it felt like they were setting a spoon on a table set by Big Bang ㅋ

8. [+48, -8] For the people that don't get it, the Dome is the stage of dreams for Japanese artists. Big Bang had to work from the bottom up to be able to perform there and YG throws in a rookie group to open for Big Bang's Dome tour. Other companies couldn't even dream of doing something like that. Fans who are paying to see Big Bang are forced to see the rookie group. Although this is all Yang Hyun Suk's fault, for a rookie group to stand in front of fans only there to see Big Bang and ask if we waited for them and to make memories together, fans can only be more pissed off.

9. [+37, -3] So comparable to Winner ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Winner sounded really humble

10. [+36, -11] Anyone else would think they were talking at their own concert. Why would Big Bang fans be waiting for iKON and make memories with them ㅋㅋㅋ Please save those statements for your own concert.

"Yang Hyun Suk's fault."

"From the perspective of a fan, it's true that the statements make me uncomfortable. They should've just kept it at, 'We're grateful that we can have our debut stage with our seniors.'"


"Shouldn't have even put the iKON kids on the opening stage..."

"Fans are the ones getting hurt over YG's unnecessary promotion tactic."

"Yang Hyun Suk is so greedy.."

"I really don't understand what Yang Hyun Suk's trying to achieve here. Is he trying to instigate fan fights?"

"I really disagree with putting Winner or iKON up on Big Bang's Dome tour. Fans only want to see the group they're paying to see. iKON and Winner can do just fine without having to perform on Big Bang's stage..."

"Yang Hyun Suk just keeps on shitting..."
