YG Entertainment has announced that iKON will continue as a six-member group for their Japanese tour. The tour which consists of 14 concerts across six cities is set to kick off on July 27 and ends mid-September. 

The announcement comes after the group's leader, B.I, confirmed his departure from the group and YG after a report revealed he'd allegedly attempted to buy illegal drugs.

YG have apologised to iKON's Japanese fans for causing disappointment due to B.I's departure, and assured that the tour will go ahead as planned.

Nothing further has been said on any other plans for the group. Prior to B.I's departure, he had been working on an album with fellow member Bobby, as well as preparing for a new Korean iKON release.
