One of the most famous K-pop boy bands, iKON, has returned with an anticipated digital single “Why Why Why” on the 3rd of March, right after hitting first places on Itunes charts.
iKON's new song ranked number 1 in 10 countries, including countries such as Qatar, Vietnam, and Peru. It ranks first in the Japanese Rakuten Music Chart and reached the top spot on Korea's major domestic music charts such as Genie.
The MV for the song melted the hearts of fans, who missed the band badly as the lyrics are about regret and sadness when a relationship comes to an end.
