One insider said, "Choi Yoo Jung and Kim Do Yeon have been preparing to study abroad in the U.S. since July of last year, even during their IOI promotions, as a part of Fantagio's girl group debut project."
A representative of Fantagio addressed the report with, "It's true that they've been preparing studying abroad in the U.S. for a while. We are careful to open up further about the topic, because we are still adjusting schedules in Korea according to current situations."
Supposedly, Choi Yoo Jung and Kim Do Yeon will be attending an academy for training singers and dancers in the U.S, while also improving their English language skills. Netizens commented, "Are they going to be filming them studying overseas? Or are they just leaving to study abroad...", "That's a lot of investing...", "What about other trainees? Will it just be those two?", "Such an unexpected move", and more.
