YG reveals details of iKON showdown
YG Entertainment yesterday announced the specific date and venue for the final round of its latest survival audition show that will select members for the agency’s newest boy group, iKON.
In order to become part of the boy group, six members of Team B and another three YG trainees have been competing in various tasks. In recent weeks, the competition has been airing on Mnet’s variety show “Mix and Match.”
The six members of Team B are YG trainees who lost to Team A, another group of wannabe singers at the entertainment agency, who later debuted as Winner, a YG boy group.
YG said the final match will be held on Wednesday at Hwajung Gymnasium inside Korea University in Anam-dong, northern Seoul.
Prior to the final match, YG held large-scale fan meetings in Osaka and Beijing. A total of 100,000 overseas fans flocked to the event to cast their votes.
On the day of the final showdown, viewers will be able to vote for the members of iKON.
