iKON is back and ready to take K-pop by storm with their latest album ‘Flashback’. The iconic third-gen boy group was one of the leading K-pop groups in the 2010s. However, fans were angry as their comebacks became extremely infrequent to the point that they were only dropping one release per year. After their participation in the fierce survival show ‘Kingdom’, they reminded the general population why they had been much loved in their early days.

We also had the members hinting at a comeback along with several solo projects. And now, it has been announced that iKON will be dropping their fourth mini-album ‘Flashback’. From the concept photos and teasers, it seems that the album is a combination of all of iKON’s past comebacks. Well, on April 25, the boy group released the tracklist for the album, and many were impressed that member Bobby was credited in every single track.
