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!

At least apologize and say thank you to epik high for covering their asses

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

'great' stories one after another

Blame the event coordinator!

Be thankful to EPIK HIGH who are a way bigger group in a way bigger company for helping with the timing

So if they weren't late then who reported the first story saying that they were late?

nami_chan chirel Friday, May 13, 2016

gabbsdoramafreak nami_chan Monday, May 16, 2016

denn1sable Friday, May 13, 2016

that manager yelling at them to get in their van would have gotten them there on time. lol.

123PoP denn1sable Friday, May 13, 2016

huh well that's a completely different story

ioicrus Friday, May 13, 2016

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.

MoonQueen ioicrus Friday, May 13, 2016

They arent going to last anyways so it doesnt matter

123PoP ioicrus Friday, May 13, 2016

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

ioicrus MoonQueen Friday, May 13, 2016

"They arent going to last anyways so it doesnt matter" Welll you never know what will happen in the future

ioicrus 123PoP Friday, May 13, 2016

well since we talking about KNET, you guys already know how sensitive they are :D

123PoP ioicrus Friday, May 13, 2016

I feel they are a little too sensible about IOI. Just thinking about the crush mv behaviour incident makes me potate 😑

MoonQueen ioicrus Friday, May 13, 2016

They arent suppose to last. they're only promoting for a year so it doesnt matter anyways

ioicrus MoonQueen Friday, May 13, 2016

"They arent suppose to last" They will last forever as IOI in nation producer heart, the place that u can't have BItch !!!

MoonQueen ioicrus Friday, May 13, 2016

you mad or nah?

pplmkl ioicrus Friday, May 13, 2016

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

ioicrus pplmkl Friday, May 13, 2016

yes

iisstf28 Friday, May 13, 2016

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
