After news broke out about IOI being tardy to a university event and being replaced by senior group Epik High for the first act of the show, YMC Entertainment has released an official statement to explain the actual occurrence of events. 

On May 13, YMC Entertainment stated, "The arrival time that the event coordinator asked of us was 10:30 PM KST. IOI arrived at the site earlier than this given time, and went on stage after accepting the coordinators' requests to host a photo time with the university students." 

The coordinators of the event also added on the matter, "If IOI had been late, we would have filed a report ourselves. They were not tardy, and because there was a delay in the process of preparing for the stage due to the large number of members, Epik High took to the stage first after agreement between the two teams." 

That cleared it up for us!

    Why, they weren't late, they didn't do anything wrong. there was a delay in preperation which they have no control over.

    Can any upcoming rookie boy or girl group beat IOI ? They only debut a week ago but they are already win an award for the first and the fastest Rookie group who has too many controversy ever since their debut.

    So far most of the controversies are pointless and over nothing. Fans are just critical of all IOI's movements sigh

    I am pretty sure this group will finish by 2017. As Chae Yeon is going back to MBK for DIA's MV shooting and an un-coonfirmed PLEDIS girl group and a Jellyfish girl group coming up. No way the company want to keep IOI. (in fact a few companies seem to want take their girls out now.) I mean I do like the girls from IOI, they are really talented but realistically I just dont think they can last longer than 1 year

    Really poor YMC, they don't really have experience with girlgroups and IOI is such a busy groups, they have to take care about alot of things that they don't know about
