Whatta unit! IOI's recently debuted sub-unit has gone into extra production for their single album 'Whatta Man' after the initial batch of 30,000 copies!


Soon after pre-sales for IOI's new single album opened up on August 2, the initial batch number sold out in minutes. Currently, pre-sale numbers have reached approximately 55,000, definitely calling for extra productions!


The sub-unit's single "Whatta Man (Good Man)" is a remake of Linda Lyndell's 1968 hit "What A Man", and has maintained impressive rankings on music charts since its release.

    They call it single album probably because it features a photo book. But yeah, I agree that it shouldn't be referred as an album.

    Agreed. An album by definition is a collection of things. 1 song does not make a collection.

    1 song should not count as an album. It goes against the very definition of "album". Smart way to manipulate the charts though, kudos to YMC.

    Pfft every time allkpop release an article about IOI you will always find this bitch negative comment. maybe the reason this bitch is hate IOI because this bitch bias in PD101 (Han Hyeri) didn't make it into final 11 and still didn't get over it pfft pathetic. listen bitch sure you didn't follow IOI, YMC only plan to release digital single of Whatta Man but they changed it because the high demand of IOI fans in korea ( As you can see below the title sell out ) to make that as an album even in that album only consist 1 song. troll

    where have you ever seen a single album with only 1 song? single albums are 2/3 songs and 1 single is always just a digital single.

    I'm quite glad Hyeri isn't involved in this project, as Dream Girls was a terrible song and this song exploits underage girls. Thankfully Blackpink have released some good songs to enjoy this week instead.

    Don't bother to argue with a spineless coward. I called that hermaphrodite out for being a racist when he/she called Somi slutty because she has a white father the other day. And guess what.. this spineless coward run away without even arguing.. being a hater is one thing.. being a self humiliating scumbag is another thing

    Talking about exploitation of under age girls while still enjoying K-pop. How ironic...

    I replied to you several times, and all you do is resort to name calling. It's not my fault you lack basic reading comprehension.

    single = 1, that´s the mean of single... 2/3/4 songs built a mini album and digital single is one song that is released only as download, you can´t by it pysical in the store, like the name said... simple and logic, right?

    Oh, really? Have you googled what racist, facist, and prejudiced means? Because I describe everything literally and point that out to you. Of course you don't have the capability to argue against what I'm saying. The only thing you're good at is talking shit and running away when you can't push back. I still remember where the whole exchange happened. Should I bring it here for everyone else to see how pathetic your intelligence level is?

    Well you've called me racist against white people when I was commenting on Western attitudes. The entire western world doesn't consist of white people. If anything it's racist of you to assume that white people should dominate the West. It's also very hypocritical of you to talk about "capability" when you yourself clearly can't understand any of my and even your own comments.

    I wouldn't have called you racist if you hadn't connect Somi's supposedly "western attitude" to her having white father. Yes, western civilisation does not concist only of white people, you should have tell yourself that before spurting utter bullshit. That's why you're a racist. Secondly, western culture DOES NOT condone exploitation to minor, sexual or anything else. Western nations have more laws protecting minors than most of their eastern counterpart. Should have educate yourself about that before drawing connection of western culture to sluttiness don't you? But of course you don't.. because you're prejudiced (or even better.. uneducated I understand every word that I choose to say.. because unlike spineless coward such as yourself. I stand behind every statement that I make. And will push hard in my arguments instead of twisting words in circle or running away

    But she was born in the west and so was her father? These are simply facts. Since you've apparently bookmarked all of my comments (I'm flattered, by the way. You must be honoured that I'm still talking to you) please find the one where I said "all white people are sluts" or "all girls with white fathers are sluts" or "all western people are white". Unless you have photoshop, you'll have a hard time finding exact phrases. I applaud your imagination though, your length of reach is exceptionally long on this one.

    This is why I said you're a spineless coward. You're a prejudiced racist by making correlation between "sluttiness" and the culture she was born into, and the parents she has. You can't argue against what I'm saying, that's why you can only twisting words and running away. No, I don't bookmarked your comments.. I always remember cowards when I see one.. and of course I'll reach far. Because it's my personal mission to humiliate keyboard warriors cowards

    Attacking certain lifestyles often portrayed in western media and the negative influence it can have on young, impressionable minds does not equate to attacking all white people like you claim. You're starting to sound like Taylor Swift. The only one "twisting" words here is you. In fact you've made up more words than you've twisted. And you've succeeded in your mission because you've already humiliated yourself many times.

    Lifestyle and culture is a very different thing you dumbass. You're the one that bringing correlation between western culture and "sluttiness", when Somi dress up for whatta man.. you brought up her upbringing and western qualities to attack her clothing choices.. Now bring the prove that western culture promote sexual exploitation to minor. Because I called you out for this many times, you pretentious hypocrite.

    Oh, and don't forget.. you also bring up Somi's father into your argument when you said having a canadian father exposing Somi to negative western influence.. the same father who publicly condemn Somi's effort to dieting hard.. a father who want his daughter to love her own body. That's why I said you are a freaking racist.. And the way you talk about exploitation to young girls while keep watching Kpop that full of young girls working 16-20 hours / day makes you a damn hypocrite

    Do the math. Young people are impressionable + western media full of garbage = young people behaving like garbage. And why are you talking about loving her body? No one said this was about body confidence wtf you sicko. Wait until she's 18.

    Are you talking about western media or western culture? What does Somi being a westerner and having a canadian father have anything to do with her exposure to western media? She live in korea for her whole life. And to call western media "garbage" while still supporting Kpop industry, where basically, thousands of teenager exposed to Kpop culture being lead to body image issues like doing cosmetic surgery and doing dangerous diet.. you're not just a hypocrite, you're dumb. Don't even talk about protecting underage girls.. while you're the one that literally called her out for "slutt it up". What you do is basically a cyber bullying.. and you still think that you have the moral high ground to judge other people and culture? But then again, I don't expect much from a spineless keyboard warrior.. you're probably a disappointment even for your mom
