My Idol Photostory: ChanWoo of iKON
iKON’s making a grand comeback with a side of the maknae on top syndrome.
We’re excited for the upcoming comeback of YG’s youngest group, iKON, for many reasons. But right now, we’re all eyes on the youngest heartthrob of the group, ChanWoo. He may have been the latest addition to the group, but he’s had more experience in the industry than many of the older iKONs.
Get to know him, and we promise you won’t be able to find a way out!
Can you look directly into his eyes and not be deeply mesmerized?
This is iKON’s fierce maknae, Jung ChanWoo!
Those dimples though! This heartbreaker can melt us with his cute maknae charms, and then turn 180 into a fierce man oozing charisma.
But we really know him best as the maknae on top of YG’s youngest boy group, iKON. He’s got no shame and no filter when it comes to fooling around with his older brothers. Fans love his brave honesty, since he was a new addition to the 6 member group through “MIX AND MATCH” – where ChanWoo battled head to head with other top trainees like PENTAGON’s HongSeok!
But at the end of it all, ChanWoo surprised everyone by being chosen as the 6th member with the highest vote – right above DongHyuk!
His talent make sense, considering that he was a child model and actor ever since he was young. He’s been in TVXQ’s “Balloon” MV, appeared on top shows like “Star King” and more – all before even signing with YG Entertaiment! He met his partner in crime (and BFF-since-childhood) ASTRO’s MoonBin during his early years in the industry.
Not only was he inseparable with MoonBin, but ChanWoo was also familiar with GFriend’s SinB and SF9’s ChanI – all who were active as child stars.
But times have changed. Even though he’s still very close with MoonBin and his other co-child-stars, iKONICs can’t deny the chemistry he has with his older brother. Especially the Bobby x Chanwoo couple!
And thank god almighty, because we’ll be seeing more of ChanWoo and his brothers in just a matter of days! YG Entertainment announced that iKON will finally be making a comeback with their new title tracks, ‘BLING BLING’ and ‘B-DAY’.
Yaasss! Can’t wait to see more of my ChanWoo on May 22 at exactly 6:00pm KST!
