For all those who complained that iKON’s Rhythm Ta was too slow may have gotten a wish granted when the group performed the song at the MelOn Awards this weekend.  Mixing the track up with some rock guitar but keeping the same tempo, the energy that was more lowkey in the original production is released here.  It was nice to see the full dance performed live (we’ve seem the dance practice video) and that helps ramp things up for the song.  The only potential downside is that they haven’t gotten used to the backtracking yet, so the vocals are weird mix of live and pre-recorded.

Also, congrats to the boys for winning best new group.  Let’s hope their second EP (or second half of their first album…whatever) keeps things going for them.
