HYBE’s desire to get out of the “kpop” box is growing stronger day by day and it’s beneficial for everyone..
Welcome to this new group and I hope that no one will spread false rumors like illit..Good luck ladies…surprise us!


they better have changed the name of the fandom and not let it be "eyekons", When will they realize that there is already a Korean boyband called 'iKON'!!, It's like the fandom was called “Be Ts” or whatever you want. Don't ignore all the years iKON have worked hard to get their name out there. They put the RIGHTS on their band name, you don't have the right to steal it, even under another spelling!


hybe he's going crazy I tell you pfff

I loved

There was a debate like that in the fandom and it seems to me that it was concluded that 1) The pronunciation has little to do with it 2) If it had really been a problem, YG would have taken action and the Ikonics would have moaned en masse.
The name had already been given by a fan in their first live and the girls immediately loved it. For Be Ts, it would be really bad since Eyekon has a relationship with Katseye. I think what's disturbing is the K, but it's the letter representing Katseye so if the group had been called Catseye it would have been Eyecon.


But why too many groups? :'( plus it's more K-Pop if it's more Korean. There are American girls and everything


LOL so Lesserafim, G(idle), Kepler, Aespa, Twice, NewJeans, Ive and Blackpink are not Kpop since there are Japanese, Chinese, Thai members and more
Kpop is Korean pop, that's all


In Blackswan there is no Korean member and yet they do kpop just say you don't like the group no one forces no one


Too true as long as they are Asian it's okay but as long as they are other nationalities it's more kpop pfff

I loved

Katseye's principle is to mix a western and kpop style to get the best, so yes, it's more totally Kpop but it will be inspired

I loved

Finally ! I can not wait !
