South Korean boyband fans iKON or often called iKONICs from Indonesia need to be prepared as iKON’s main rapper, Bobby, will visit Jakarta on August 31st for a solo stage. Also, it’s going to be his first ever stage outside of South Korea as a soloist.
Set to enliven the already crazy packed stage with all the major headlines, Bobby is going to light up the Asian Sound Syndicate Vol. 1 at the Helipad Parking Ground, GBK Senayan. Fellow hit stars also include Gray, Simon, D, Crush, and DPR Live. Stellar Events, as the promoter of this event, organized this festival with knowledge that there’s a very significant rise about the Korean hip hop phenomenon in Asia.
However, this is not Bobby’s first visit to Indonesia. He, along with iKON, has already greeted Indonesia’s iKONICs before at the closing of the 2018 Asian Games and also in their own concert, the iKON Continue Tour in Jakarta 2018.
Even before Bobby has debuted as iKON, the rapper, whose real name Kim Ji Won, has trained in YG Entertainment ever since 2011 and made himself more known by winning the infamous Korean rap competition, Show Me The Money, in 2014. Bobby debuted as a solo artist in September 2017 through the album Love and Fall, numerous hit songs like Runaway, I Love You and In Love. The album earned a number 2 debut on the Billboard’s World Albums chart, tying for his own group best position to date.
iKONICs are expecting Bobby to perform all of the hits from his album that he has never performed before in Asian Sound Syndicate. Not to be missed is the chance to meet and greet with the icon in person.
