South Korean Netizens Talk About WINNER VS. iKON

YG Entertainment

YG Entertainment’s idol groups WINNER and iKON are important assets to the entertainment agency as it needs younger idol groups to ensure the company’s competitive edge within the K-Pop market once BIGBANG‘s popularity comes to and in the future.

And just recently, WINNER fans were in uproar when an iKON VCR was played during a WINNER concert.

Consequently, this has lead South Korean fans and netizens to talk about which of the two groups were more prominent within the K-Pop scene.

But given that modern K-Pop deals with two different markets, domestic and international, it’s worth taking into account the amount of popularity of both groups in both markets.

One South Korean netizen believes that YG supported iKON substantially more than WINNER and attempted to make B.I into the next G-Dragon, but ultimately failed to do so. Another stated that WINNER was much more popular in South Korea while iKON was more popular internationally.

In addition, individual members of WINNER seem to be loved by the South Korean public slightly more than members of iKON as well, due to their frequent appearances on TV shows.

Do you agree with South Korean fans’ view on the two idol groups?

I’m a fan of both and I believe, winner is more popular in korea while iKON on the other hand reigns internationally. I agreed about papa YG making B.I the next GD as he said that in WIN but B.I isn’t really like GD. HE IS hanbin. THEY’RE JUST TOO DIFFERENT TO BE COMPARED. And back to winner-ikon thing, WINNER’s members are more exposed on TVs in KOREA they’re on shows whereas we can barely see ikon in them. BUT ikon’s been to billboard interview so… I CAN SAY THEY’RE BOTH PERFECT HAHAHAAHHAHA I’M A FAN AND I WILL NEVER… Read more »

iKON is much much more popular internationally while I have never heard of Winner before. In my personal opinion, their songs are doing better internationally while Winner’s songs aren’t really to my taste. Many of my Kpop interested friends have the same opinion. Apart from Minho, no one stands out much while everyone in iKON has more presence of their own.

P.S: I am an international fan of iKON
