B.I. and iKON recently shared the stage again at an event, leaving fans with mixed feelings.
When iKON debuted in 2015, its lineup consisted of seven members — Jay, Song, Bobby, DK, Ju-ne, Chan, and leader B.I. It remained that way until controversies in 2019 led to B.I leaving the group, and the other members continued promoting as six.
Over the years, fans have hoped for reconciliation, though recent statements made by Bobby have made this seem unlikely.
However, what seemed impossible happened at a recent event.
On November 18, the first night of the two-day Supersounds Festival in Thailand took place. The line-up boasted a number of popular artists, including iKON and B.I.
The event went off without a hitch, but fans were left with mixed feelings towards the end of the show.
A clip shared by a fan from the concert’s ending shows B.I. standing on the extended stage as the other artists who performed make their way down the catwalk. As iKON make their way down the stage, B.I. faces towards them and seems to watch until they make it to the extended state.
Once the group are out of shot, B.I. turns around and seems to have a small smile on his face.
While the group are having their final speaking moments, B.I. also turns to watch the members as they speak, another moment that has fans in their feelings. As B.I speaks, iKON politely listen to his words, with some members facing him as well.
