The album showcase for IOI's debut album 'Chrysalis' was held on May 5 at Jangchung Gymansium in Seoul, and the girls opened up about their promotions with title song "Dream Girls" and "Knock Knock Knock," one of the other songs in the album. 


The girls promised during the showcase, "If we win first place [with "Dream Girls"], we will bow deeply on the spot to everyone. We want to express how grateful we are."

It was during the showcase that Jeon So Mi was asked about the members' ultimate goal with IOI group activities. She replied, "Unfortunately, IOI will disband after one year. If we were to raise one goal, it's to not be sad about our disbandment and show everyone the many things we can do individually."

Now that i think of it , i expected them to be slip into two groups inorder to promote more (maybe even in japan and china) but YMC isn't taking care of them

I don't get why they will disbanded after a year? It basically makes the whole show they were on completely pointless.

Not really... Many (or some) trainees are popular now. For example, Han Hyeri received many calls for cfs and etc. The trainees that gained popularity will bring popularity to the groups they debut in the future.

If they debuted with Crush instead, a win wouldn't be so impossible.....but still, who knows. I really love them, if they disband I'll be sad. Like, what was all their hard work for???

Amylt3 Thursday, May 5, 2016

I am incredibly upset. Why disbandment? This group is so talented and I love each member. Yeah maybe the debut song isn't the best but... come on like what was even point of show and everything!

The promise of the show was to debut in a group for a minimum one year. They haven't decided if they would or would not continue the group afterwards. These girls still belong to different management companies.

Hmm for some reason, I thought it was gonna be 2 years.  Isn't 1 year too short?  Don't most groups only promote about 2 title songs w/in one year?  And yeah I agree, their debut song did not grab my attention at all, no justice to their talent and the love they received from the nation.

This is a valid idea but I don't think it will be the best course of action for JYP, Twice and Somi. :3

TWICExIOI Fairytailloverr Thursday, May 5, 2016

It's good idea for their friendship but I think it'll bring hate (?) considering anti twice, for sure they'll make an issue out of that.

pandaspirit Fairytailloverr Thursday, May 5, 2016

omg that a possibility cause JYP said that the only reason Somi didn't debut is cause JYP thought she wasn't ready?

Asucchan91 Fairytailloverr Friday, May 6, 2016

Nope, it's impossible that JYP add a member to the group (pluse Twice are perfect the way they are so, let them be). I'm hoping for some group with the 2000-2002 liners from Sixteen (Chae sister, Natty, Eunsuh, Somi) maybe by the end of 2017?

Asucchan91 Friday, May 6, 2016

sototallyrandom Asucchan91 Friday, May 6, 2016

Jiwon too :o

Asucchan91 sototallyrandom Friday, May 6, 2016

Jiwon left JYP after Sixteen and Minyoung too, sadly.

sototallyrandom Asucchan91 Friday, May 6, 2016

Oh... I only heard Minyoung leave, not Jiwon. :( What a shame, both of them are really good singers :<

Asucchan91 sototallyrandom Saturday, May 7, 2016

Well, I don't think that Minyoung would ever fit the girl group image, her voice is too dark to me, but she would be a great solo singer. I hope that she found a new agency that helped her to deal with her lack of self-confidence. And Jiwon too, I hope she's doing fine, she was so cute to me back in Sixteen.
