{ bobby's pre-debut activities with and without ikon } bobby is a successful kid, the fact that kpop is a huge trend in korea and worldwide as of the moment, underground rappers have looked down on rappers on the mainstream scene (labeled as "idol rappers") but at the age of 19, bobby has established himself as one of, if not the best, idol rappers in this generation of kpop; and that many underground/korean hiphop artists had looked up on him and acknowledge his talent.

  • bobby was signed in with yg entertainment (ikon's current entertainment management label) when he was 16 on 2011, and was put together in a team called team b with other 5 members. team b competed with and lost to the then known as team a on the survival show win: who is next on 2013, the show giving both teams the opportunity to debut under the name "winner".
    • during win , team b was able to release 2 digital singles, climax (sales: 76,899+) and just another boy (sales: 38,028+).
