Chae Yeon communicated to fans about this big decision on her Instagram, writing a letter that relayed her determination to do her best in both DIA and IOI. 

She wrote, "Hello. This is Chae Yeon. You were probably shocked to find out that I have joined DIA again. I worried over how I should communicate the way I feel to you all without any misunderstandings. First, I wanted to personally tell you [about re-joining DIA] but because I couldn't, I just feel regretful and sorry. Because I was a part of the program, debuted as a member of IOI, and received so much love from my fans, I wanted to be sure to be the first one to tell you this news; I wanted to promise you all that I will not neglect IOI promotions. As much as you all love me, I will try to be someone who tries even harder as a member of IOI. Every moment that I get to stand in front of you is always so precious to me. That is why I will continue to give it my all so that I won't hurt or disappoint you. I will always be a Chae Yeon who tries her best. Thank you."

No. I don't like this dual group situation. Maybe in June when IOI make it as sub group, they will just kick CY out from IOI. So she could focus on her DIA activities. Then ended her contract with IOI. With the rest of the popularity from other 10 members. I think it will still better than DIA.

why are you even upset? IOI is gonna end in a couple of moth so let her do DIA since is her main group, soon enough people are going to forget IOI even existed, it's a smart business move

"Hi. This is Chae Yeon and I'll have my cake and eat it too. Subsequently, I'll also have that cake which wasn't meant to be for me anymore but since it's strawberry, I'll just have that as well." I doubt she will be able to do both groups well, apart from my personal feelings about this ludicrous decision of hers. But sure, go on. I guess a stage breakdown is something IOI could use for a bit more publicity.

It's not like this is shoking in anyway, the agency already said that the members will still be able to promote with their agencies. People are getting so upset over a group that was going to last less then a year jeez, calm down you'll get a new IOI next year

i knew it. Produce 1-1 /IOI just a program to gain popularity

Vungalelenoa Thursday, May 12, 2016

If I am being honest.. I wish the girls of IOI just focused on IOI. I know she will go back to DIA but I just wished that they didnt overwork her so much! Couldn't the rest of the girls of DIA put out a sub unit or something? I just dont want her fainting or crashing because she's trying so hard to balance both! IOI fighting! DIA fighting!

I'm sure now DIA will get attention it only takes one member to put a girl group under the radar

ramjetranch Wednesday, May 11, 2016

Well, at least MBK let Chaeyeon and Cathy back in the group.  This wasn't certain.  Or maybe they were cut, then KKS wisely (for a change) changed his mind.  I haven't heard if Seunghee finally decided to stay or leave.

Well it does make sense I mean after IOI disband where will she go? Plus DIA debut before produced 101  they were trainees when they signed up for produce 101 so it should be as it was before the show Her and cathy go back to their respective group when produce 101 ended but they probably weren't expecting one of them to make it in the group. I'm glad she'll be with DIA I love that group as well!

Produce 101 was an opportunity for publicity. It was a wise move to have your trainees join if you weren't a well known - company - obvi not talking about JYP, CUBE, LOEN, etc. Also IOI is a group with a set expiry date. I admit this is smart considering that DIA's popularity can increase whilst she promotes with IOI who are all already popular. I just hope she doesn't get too overworked..

She has to think about her future after IOI. it was the right decision and as long as it doesn't get in the way of her IOI promotions, idc
