5 former 'Produce 101' contestants, whose attempts to debut in IOI failed by such close margins, have been confirmed to debut in a brand new girl group called I.B.I!

The 5 ladies gearing up to be a part of I.B.I are Han Hyeri, Lee Soo Hyun, Kim So Hee, Yoon Chae Kyung, and Lee Hae In. Because these girls were so close to earning a spot in the top 11, fans have been demanding that they come together anyway. As a result, I.B.I will be a special project group launched by Loen Entertainment.

I.B.I stands for "Il Ban In", which means non-celebrity, or a normal person in Korean. The girls will be debuting with the humorous, yet meaningful name on August 18, and will be disbanding in the near future just like IOI. No further details have been revealed.

Stay tuned for updates on I.B.I!

About Juna, there are rumors that MusicK will re-debut The Ark with new members and I hope that Juna will be one of the new members.

Then wat is the point pf selecting the final 11 when there will also be another similar group.

I think Park So was not included to this project because she may not fit the style that Loen is aiming for... I mean look at this team already... I think Park So needs something with more Girl Crush with all that charisma on stage. I will still wait for your debut girl!

Exactly, people are just seeing LOEN and jumping to conclusions. Since this is a short term thing, they probably have more long term plans for Soyeon in their own group.

I wonder if they cut Park Soyeon from the lineup because she doesn't have the idol look people prefer.  I noticed she was included on IOI's realtiy show but isn't in the actual group.
