More than 400 excited iKONICs came together at Langham Place in Hong Kong the past weekend to catch a glimpse of iKON, a 7-member group under YG Entertaiment, comprising of B.I, Jinhwan, Yunhyeong, Bobby, Donghyuk, Junhoe and Chanwoo.
The group was in town for their 1st concert, iKoncert 2016: Showtime Tour, and attended the launch of fingercroxx x SWEET MONSTER pop-up store in Hong Kong. During the short session, the members of iKON stated that they only managed to have fried rice in the hotel when asked what local foods they tried. Jinhwan constantly mentioned that he really wanted to have ice cream while Junhoe drove the fans crazy when he said that he wanted to eat with them.
5 lucky fans were chosen beforehand via a contest held by ITHK and fingercroxx and they were given an exclusive chance to interact with iKON on stage. The 5 fans were invited on stage to ask the members of iKON some questions and after giving their answers, iKON presented the fans with autographed posters. The session ended with a group photo of 10 lucky fans with iKON and they walked away with gifts from fingercroxx x SWEET MONSTER.

This interesting concept garnered many fans and later on, PARK went on to launching a pop up store and within a short span of a year. Although SWEET MONSTER originated from Korea, the dessert store is actually positioned in the USA. SWEET MONSTER aims to come up with new desserts to bring the feelings of sweetness and happiness to consumers, similarly to how one would feel at an amusement park or carnival. Each dessert at SWEET MONSTER is represented uniquely, and it sold in monster size. The exquisite designs of the desserts at SWEET MONSTER will definitely entice you.
