*September 27, 2021 Update*
Yay, iKON's Bobby and his fiancée just welcomed the birth of their first child! Soompi reported that a YG Entertainment representative has confirmed the news.
Congratulations to the new parents!
iKON’s Bobby made a sudden announcement on Instagram on August 20 that took many fans by surprise. The 25-year-old singer announced that he's set to marry his girlfriend and will become a father soon.
Posting a handwritten letter, Bobby wrote (as translated by Soompi): "I promised to marry someone I loved. And I [will] become a father in September."
The singer said that he's glad he has a new family, but apologized to his fans who would become "embarrassed" because of the news.
Bobby added, "I should've let you know earlier, but I apologize that I am letting you know later as I was worried more than anything for this reason."
He also promised that he'll work even harder to avoid causing harm to the members and fans who are eagerly waiting for iKON's activities.
Along with Bobby, iKON is composed of members Jinhwan, Yunhyeong, Donghyuk, Ju-ne, and Chanwoo. In 2021, the six-piece K-pop group released their digital single
"Why Why Why" and took part in the reality show Kingdom: Legendary War.
