August 1 was a great moment for Winner and iKON fans, who got to see the two groups on a broadcast together for the first time after “WIN: Who Is Next” aired two years ago.
Winner and iKON had a blast playing games and going head-to-head to win a free vacation through a show on the Naver V app, a new K-pop streaming platform.
Winner’s Kang Seung Yoon especially expressed his delight at the on-air reunion, saying, “After our battles on ‘WIN,’ this was our first broadcast with iKON. It was moving from the start.”
“We were so happy to be able to approach fans as, not Team A and Team B, but completed groups and brothers,” says Kang Seung Yoon.
He goes on to sincerely congratulate iKON on their win: “If we had won the game, I would have liked to go to the homeland of nasi goreng Jakarta, or even Rome. But iKON is going on vacation, instead, and I’d like them to have a great time. [Winner] will be hard at work in the studio preparing our album.”
