  • My bias in iKON😍

    can we get B.I’s ideal type updated? he and bobby’s profiles use “My Type” lyrics as their ideal type which i don’t think is very accurate. B.I said in a vlive in 2017 that My Type lyrics aren’t his actual ideal type and that he just used the lyrics because they worked well. what he HAS said:

    his ideal type is someone who he can write a song about, a person’s energy/spirit is very important to him (ch+, Star Road)

    some other interesting facts about him:

    he’s explained that he got nihilism tattooed on his chest because he was really into Nietzsche and nihilism for a while, and even though his mindset has changed, he doesn’t regret the tattoo because it reminds him of how he was at 19-20 years old (ch+)

    Jinhwan says B.I has a hard time talking to girls and gets really nervous (Idol School Trip ep.1 & 5)

    he’s a big fan of Neon Genesis Evangelion (on stage during tour, fan accounts)

    he likes arranging flowers (Weekly Idol, Mimi Shop)

    he’s a fan of Twice’s Dahyun and Red Velvet’s Seulgi (Idol Room)

    he doesn’t have many friends because he has a hard time maintaining personal relationships, he isn’t very social and can be shy in real life (ch+)

    he loves physical affection (Arirang tv, Idol Room, vlive)

    he has really bad allergies, Donghyuk says his nose runs and his palms get itchy if he doesn’t take his medication (ch+)

    it’d be really cool if we could add these things, iKON are gaining a lot of new fans and i wanted to keep his profile updated and interesting, let me know if i can help in any way, thanks! 🙏🏽

  • Renn1sm

    Hanbin has new tattoo in his bellow right chest. “Fear and loathing in Las Vegas”??

  • Maria Chezza Mae Lachica

    bi is also a fan of twice dahyun

  • Hannah Asencio

    177cm is 5’8″ in feet, so I don’t think the height is correct.

  • H.

    hanbin won best songwriter of the year in melon music awards 2018

  • belle

    also, he just collaborated with LEE HI on the song NO ONE.

  • Nana Kirsten Green

    …. He just left ikon and YG……😭

  • Nyny

    stay strong ikonics

  • conspiratorial microwave

    Thanks so much YG. I mean, B.I was asking for drugs, but YG dropped him so quickly without any support or any hope of helping him. I hope that Hanbin will continue to pursue a music career, and overcome this. ikonics, fighting!

  • goodbye

    it was his choice actually and i am crying so hard right now

  • Porshea Kim

    It actually wasn’t his choice. YG decided to let him go and put out the statement before even discussing anything with Hanbin.
