iKon recently announced their official fan color and it is...red.
Simply enough, right?
TVXQ's fan club (aka the biggest fan club in the entire world according to the record books) Cassiopeia are notoriously red colored.
The Cassiopeia crowds at concerts are even called the "Red Ocean"
So, that group of fans is preeeetty unhappy with iKon right now.
Does it REALLY matter though?
There are only so many colors on Earth, lol.
I understand groups want to differentiate themselves, especially at group concerts like Dream Concert. SHINee can clearly see where their fans are by the blue lights they hold, and SNSD can see Soshis based on their pink glow, etc. But come on! Is it worth starting a fan war?
There will always be a YG vs SM rivalry...
but in my opinion this is making Cassiopeia look silly. They're such an awesome powerful huge fan club that has existed more than 12 years now, and they're going to be angry about a new boy band taking their color?
Red will always be directly linked to Cassiopeia in the Kpop world and even though I love iKon I doubt that they will change that.
