IOI's first subunit has been announced!

Regarding members Kim Se Jung, Kang Mina, and Jung Chae Yeon, YMC said, "The members who are not included in the subunit will go back to their original labels to promote with the groups that have long been prepared under their agencies." 


Yoo Yeon Jung's label Starship Entertainment also explained her exclusion as they stated, "Yoo Yeon Jung has gained experience by working alongside friends with various talents, and we have decided that she needs more practice on other areas than singing. She will use her experience with IOI as a foundation and return to the group's promotion after more practice and improvements."


Meanwhile, IOI's first subunit is scheduled to start promotions on SBS MTV's 'The Show' on June 18. A new album is also being planned for release in July.

    Creating a subunit is better for YMC right now, because Chae-yeon is already promoting with DIA and the Jellyfish girls are getting ready to debut in a week. As for Yeon-jung, her company wants her to train more because they think she is lacking in all except singing. The group is already breaking apart in only less then a year, the company probably has no choose.

    Lastly, whoever is responsible for constantly leaving Yeunjung out of everything (whether it's YMC or Starship) needs to seriously check their sanity. She needs more training? She's the hands down best vocalist they have and her dancing is better than many of the other girls in the group. They're seriously making a mistake by constantly leaving her out of everything.

    Why 7 though? That's a LOT for a subunit. I would think they would do 6 and 5, not 7 and 4. Either way, please give them a better song than Dream Girls. Something closer to Crush, Yum Yum, or Fingertips would be good. Just please no more aegyo concepts.

    What was the point of the making the group if they were going to divide like this?Anyway, I have a feeling that Somi, Chungha and Doyeon would take over the vocals. This would be interesting to see.

    I hope Chung Ha will be the Main Vocalist!!!! Chunghaa!! Our Dancing Queen! For me Sohye is pretty, but really just my opinion but she's somehow useless when the group need more vocals or even dances.
