1. [+150, -2] Oh... I like the meanings of Carat and iKONIC

2. [+126, -16] It doesn't mean that the fans are jewels! It means that Seventeen is jewels and Carats make Seventeen shine more! You can't imitate Seventeen-Carat!

3. [+123, -15] Let's last long! Other fandoms also have pretty meanings.

4. [+66, -6] I want them to keep this permanent lightstick color... It'll be so pretty if they make an official lightstick with this color.

5. [+39, -8] Konies~ Konics~

6. [+32, -9] I love how we have our fandom name ㅠㅠ When Hanbin says his winning speech, he thanks us iKONICs and I feel so proud and happy. It makes me want to stream and vote harder.

7. [+31, -2] Collapsed Carats after watching oppars


8. [+17, -3] Huh? I thought BAP fans are called Babies?

9. [+16, -2] Isn't BAP's fandom Baby? It overlaps.
