Former iKON‘s B.I had been engulfed in rumors where many doubted the legibility of his position in the company due to rumors that his father was the vice-chairman of IOK Company. However, IOK Company has issued an official statement on their position.
They denied the rumors in a statement to media outlet, Star Today, on August 26, 2021, claiming “It is not true that B.I’s father is the vice-chairman of IOK Company. He is not even on our payroll. He is not working as a director either, be it internal or external.”
They claim that it is true that his father had indeed visited the office during the album preparation process, but it was only as he had to handle some documents as B.I’s family member. They denied rumors of his working ties in the company.
B.I had moved to IOK Company following his leave of YG Entertainment and iKON. He has been diligently working on his music solo.
