iKon is a popular South Korean boy band founded in 2015. The sponsor and the creator of the group is YG Entertainment. The lineup includes seven young men Yunhyeong, Jinhwan, Ju-ne, Bobby, B.I, Chanwoo, and Donghyuk.

The group’s formation began back in 2013. Many of the group members appeared in different reality shows aired on SBS. In 2013, B.I, Jinhwan, Ju-ne, Donghyuk, Bobby, and Yunhyeong performed as a group called Team B, which appeared on the TV show, WIN: Who Is Next. As part of the project, they recorded two singles "Just Another Boy" and "Climax", both of which earned popularity in South Korea.

In 2014, all the protégés of YG Entertainment went on Power World Tour. Team B wasn’t an exception.

In order to finalize the lineup, the label sent Team B to perform in another reality show, Mix & Match. At the same time, they worked as opening act for Big Bang during their Japan Dome Tour X. At the end of the year, the final lineup was confirmed and so was the name. iKon stands for Icon for Korea. Even though the lineup took time to finalize, the band was already performing. That’s why it managed to get on the list of "Top 5 K-Pop Artists to Watch in 2015” before the official debut.
