iKON’s Bobby recently shocked pretty much everybody by declaring in a statement that he was engaged to a woman and that they would be having a child next month.
Hello, this is iKON’s Bobby. There is something I really want to tell you today, so I am writing this after putting in much thought. I have promised marriage with a person I love. I am also becoming a father in September. I am happy to welcome a new family member, but I feel more apologetic to the fans who must be taken aback by my news. I should’ve let you know earlier, but I apologize that I am letting you know later as I was worried more than anything for this reason. I feel heavy responsibility as I think I have caused a great emotional burden to the people who always help and support me who is lacking a lot in many ways. I sincerely apologize to the people who are hurt or confused by my news. I will become a person who does not cause shame to my parents along with the iKON members and fans who have made my lacking self into someone who is needed in this world. More than anything, I will work even harder to not cause harm to the members and the fans who are waiting for iKON’s activities.
Oh boy. Mess potential given … well, fans.
Honestly, I don’t have much to say about this since it’s just relationship news and most of the mess will come from fans being salty about it and the shotgun marriage stuff. I wasn’t gonna cover it until … well, Yas yelled at me to give the people what they want.
Interviewer: It’s cool because it is honest, without pretending or trying too hard?
BOBBY: That’s right, that’s right. That’s what I like about it: there is an aura to it even when it’s just there without doing anything. I keep falling deeper into it because of that. Hip-hop isn’t just music; it has a culture. Like when you’re simply hanging out with your friends and high-five each other, that’s hip-hop. For example, waking up in the morning and going to school without showering, that’s hip-hop too.. It’s just raw.
