iKON has just dropped its comeback album “New Kids” with their double tracks “Bling Bling” and “B-Day”. Amid the euphoria, people on multiple online communities criticized the group for having poor performance on music charts, considering the group is from the label of major artists who usually topped local music charts. Allkpop has gathered netizens’ responses following iKON’s performance on several music charts. Their newest release “Bling Bling” and “B-Day” topped real-time search on Olleh Music. However, on May 24, the tracks went down to number 66 and 86 respectively.
