iKON recently had their first comeback in over a year with [Flashback], and fans love everything about the album.
iKON took a big risk on trying a musical style that they haven't tried before but they never disappoint us. BUT YOU is reaching heights for synthwave and retro style of music. We stan a group that has a high respect for music and artistry. #iKON #BUTYOU#FLASHBACK @YG_iKONIC

As part of their promotions, iKON has been posting videos to their TikTok account for the #ButYouChallenge, where they dance to their title track “BUT YOU.”

And aside from doing the challenge as a group and in pairs, iKON is also showing off some of their fellow YG Entertainment artist friendships.
iKON’s Song, Jay, and JUNE first filmed the challenge with Aiki and YG Entertainment choreographer Leejung Lee, who appeared on Mnet‘s show Street Woman Fighter.
And fans couldn’t help but find the collaboration adorable.

Then iKON’s Jay showed off his friendship with TREASURE‘s Hyunsuk and Jihoon.
Fans especially loved this collaboration since not only are TREASURE big fans of iKON, but Jay, in particular, has continually shown his consideration towards his hoobaes (juniors in the industry). And fans were also excited to see the three reunite after they were some of the YG Entertainment artists that appeared on The Game Caterers YouTube channel.
Fans are loving the precious interaction.

And then iKON’s DK showed off another legendary friendship as he recorded the challenge with BLACKPINK‘s Lisa.
Fans were excited to see Lisa and iKON together again after Lisa made an appearance on iKON’s rendition of BLACKPINK’s “Pretty Savage,” changed to “Classy Savage,” on Mnet’s show Kingdom.
Not only did DK and Lisa film the typical challenge, but they also showed off their dance skills and close friendship by filming the “couple choreography.” Both showing off their immense charms.
Fans are excited to see DK and Lisa’s close friendship.

Even if they’re joking about the comparison of styles of dance between Lisa dancing with DK and with WINNER‘s Hoony (also known as Seunghoon).

Fans are certainly loving the TikTok collaborations that iKON has shared and are curious to see what other possible friends iKON might collaborate with.
