iKON member Bobby cheered for the comeback of iKON's former member BI, who withdrew due to marrijuana scandal.

On May 14th, B.I promoted the new song on his official SNS. B.I released a new single 'Got It Like That', which he worked with American artists Destiny Rogers and Tyla Yaweh, at 1 p.m. On the morning of the 16th. Bobbu posted a comment on B.I's SNS with "lets go". B.I responded with a heart emoticon.

Above all, the strong friendship between the two, despite the drug scandal, attracts attention. B.I, who debuted as YG Entertainment's boy group iKON together with Bobby, left the team in June 2019, when it was revealed that he was not investigated by the police even after being suspected of doing marijuana, which he allegedly took in 2016. Later, B.I. admitted to smoking marijuana in a police investigation.

After about two years of self-reflection, B.I established a place in IOK Company by 131LABEL and resumed activities by releasing new songs one after another.

It is not the first time that Bobby has publicly revealed his admiration for B.I. On October 22, 2019, only 4 months after B.I's withdrawal, Bobby posted a video of iKON's stage with B.I. on his SNS with "I miss you Happy birthday." At that time, iKON member Kim Donghyuk also posted a picture of B.I's birth flower, congratulating B.I.’s birthday.

The reactions of fans and netizens to Bobby's words and actions were mixed. Although it is a personal choice to send a message, criticism has been raised about the necessity of supporting the comeback of the former member who committed the offense in an open space where everyone can see. On the other hand, there are fans who cheer for the deep friendship between the two.

 2. Cheering as he pleases on a member who quit because of his drugs scandal, without any critical thinkingㅋㅋ  To think that you can do drugs when you're bored just like when you're chewing gum, as expected YG is differentㅋㅋ

3. Who cares? It's not like he's supporting drugs

4. The title is f*cking hilariousㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

5. I don't think that the fans really care.... But I rather him support B.I by sending a katalk text, so that nobody would know about it

6. The title is crazy ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

7. If you had a friend like Seungri, would you be able to make it obvious too? I bet he doesn't think like drugs are a big deal since he sees Bigbang still making it obvious that they're friends with Seungri while he still has f*cking lots of shield

8. Isn't the title going too hard on them? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

9. Please if you think of the fans, please do that on Katalk. Your image is so good on Kingdom 

10. The article title f*ckㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

11. He's so likable on Kingdom, so why are people even commenting here?... Let's just pretend we never saw this.. 

12. There's not  a single fandom who enjoys seeing the members making it obvious they're still close to a member who left due to a scandal. 

13. I guess that's acceptable in Bobby's moral standards~

14. Bobby pulling a Bobby 

15. So nice to see a true friendship with a druggie criminalㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
