Hey, this just came to mind
You know how iKON has weird names
Like Jimotmi (“Apology”), Chwihyangjeokyeok (“My Type”) (Translator note: slang words in Korean)
But than the songs are crazy good
Before they were trying to title BIGBANG’s ‘LIE’ as ‘Bullshit’ instead
This is YG…
Papa YG loves things like this
It’s his taste in titles..
So dumb..”

Meanwhile, iKON recently dropped their latest singles, a double title track one of which features B.I and Bobby with “Anthem.” The track “Apology” has been getting well-received by the public as it continues to top high on the charts, hitting #1 on several digital charts in its first few days of release.
