IOI appeared on 'V' app on August 19 and gave their thoughts on winning four times for "Whatta Man" so far!

Lim Na Young said, "Thanks to the great love received from our fans, we got an unexpected four wins.  We're so grateful," and Kim So Hye said, "Thank you for making us so happy," and Choi Yoo Jung said, "It's given us a lot of strength this week.  It feels like a dream."

Kim Do Yeon said, "I think the more you receive awards, the more you feel a responsibility. There's still a lot left in our promotions, so I'd like for you to fight on with us 'til the end." Lim Na Young added, "We will not forget our original intentions and work hard to the end with humble spirits.  It's a huge blessing to receive love like this."  

Jeon So Mi said thoughtfully, "Also thanks to IOI members Jung Chae Yeon, Kang Mi Na, Kim Se Jung, and Yoo Yeon Jung."

So happy they can experience this. Only hope that before IOI is all over that Sejeong, Mina, Chaeyeon, and Yeonjung get to experience it as well. There are no guarantees that any of the 11 members will ever reach this position with their separate agencies and groups, or even if their groups will survive the overcrowded and competitive kpop girl group field. This may be some of the members' only chance at the big prize, so I hope they each can get as much fame, endorsements, wins, money, and love as IOI they can before the group breaks apart.

I really wish all the IOI members were there to experience their first win together you know :/ not like half of the IOI members.

nowadays it doesnt matter if your song is good or not. be from a famous group, a famous label or a famous tv show and you'll automatically get no1. No real soul in kpop anymore coz the fans are so mindless most of the times

OUR taste could be different, so, your judgment not valid, and i am not an IO! fans or etc

It's true to an extent, but in this article it's incredibly irrelevant. IOI struggled so much with their debut because their handling company wasn't one of the Big 3 and also didn't care about them. They couldn't even appear on music shows. So they didn't have the road paved out in any way for this trophy, yet they did get it with their effort. And actually, personal preference here, but this song kicks ass. It's a great jam to me, and apparently to a lot of people as well if they made IOI got no.1. You might not like it but saying IOI got here because they have nothing but inflated fame is bullsh*t.

hiroonakamura cassiecassie Sunday, August 28, 2016

so all the free PR they got via the TV show has NOT lead to them getting any extra fame before their debut? bullshit.

cassiecassie hiroonakamura Monday, August 29, 2016

Think what you may but that show was not that loved. It gave them extra fame but that fame alone couldn't have earned them these achievements.

hiroonakamura cassiecassie Friday, September 2, 2016

the show did some good numbers and that pick me pick me pick me-song was huge DURING the shows run.

cassiecassie hiroonakamura Saturday, September 3, 2016

That song was bad. It was only catchy. And of course celebs have to mention it all the time to promote the show indirectly, that doesn't mean it was well loved.

hiroonakamura cassiecassie Saturday, September 3, 2016

it actually sold almost 724 000 units though. that makes it kinda huge

hiroonakamura cassiecassie Saturday, September 3, 2016

also, i never said that song isnt bad. it's absolutely terrible :P

getalifelosers Friday, August 19, 2016

so proud of them ^^ ioi fighting!!

Firearmy Friday, August 19, 2016

They dont deserve it, give that to Wjsn

Stunmaster Firearmy Friday, August 19, 2016

It's an award for girlgroup.. not a football team + 2 extra player

lifeoftheparty Firearmy Friday, August 19, 2016

Woah brush everyone deserves to win, why so negative

OhMyGuy Firearmy Friday, August 19, 2016

Don't be like that, WJSN's popularity is growing they will win eventually no need for that

goodnightsweetie Friday, August 19, 2016

why somi not standing in the center? :/

heeheehe goodnightsweetie Friday, August 19, 2016

????How is that relevant to this article at all?? Why does it matter if she's not standing in the center?

aizatuladzwa Friday, August 19, 2016

I love them. That's all. #IOI4thWin

Kabo_desu Friday, August 19, 2016

Congrats for their 4th win!

krell Friday, August 19, 2016

SOMI for New 4th Member of MISS A Group! ... (Joking) ... I just *know* that JYP *himself* pays attention to my AKP messages here! ... ;-)

krell Friday, August 19, 2016

NOT looking to upset any IOI Group fans. I *like* IOI Group. I *defended* this new song when the TROLLS were ranting about 'soft porno' endlessly. I am *glad* to see this POPULARITY for IOI Group. Having said that, I could *wish* that a couple other K-pop Groups could have just ONE WIN on one of these TV Shows. Namely, DAL*SHABET ; RAINBOW ; FIESTAR ; STELLAR ; 9MUSES ; SPICA ; LADIE'S CODE ; and a couple Groups that I missed them. Again, I *like* it a LOT that this PD101 TV Show did get the TRAINEES *out of the garage* and onto a TV SCREEN where K-pop Fans can ENJOY them! And the K-pop AGENCIES involved are *clearly* RETHINKING their strategies now with regard to TRAINEES. I *suspect* that you will see more *sharing* of *quality* TRAINEES between the AGENCIES in a *temporary* Group like the new IBI Group (from PD101 members). It makes a LOT of LOGIC from a PROFIT standpoint for (AGENCIES) them to do this. In a sense, the New Young Group is more like an ALL STAR GROUP drawn from the *best* TRAINEES of *all* the AGENCIES.

krell Friday, August 19, 2016

The only 'problem' that the AGENCIES have with these 'shared temporary groups' is how to finance and split up the money. Which, with IOI Group, the 'problem' is now how to SPLIT UP THE MONEY PROFITS! Which, you WANT THAT PROBLEM !!! ... ;-)

krell Friday, August 19, 2016

Well, I guess even a DOWN VOTE means that someone actually READ my message here! ... (Joking) ... Maybe it was JYP *himself* using an AKP ALIAS !!! ... ;-)

OhMyGuy krell Friday, August 19, 2016

Miss A are way too established to add a member, plus Miss A's songs do not fit Somi at all...

krell OhMyGuy Friday, August 19, 2016

MISS A = SUZY + SOMI = MONEY !!! ... ;-)

OhMyGuy krell Friday, August 19, 2016

Somi+New Girl Group = Even more money

krell OhMyGuy Friday, August 19, 2016

Ultimately, SOMI *will* likely be an important *anchor* person in a New Girl Group. I figure MISS A Group has 'one last go around' left. And SOMI would make an *interesting* addition to MISS A Group as far as FAN INTEREST. Then, MISS A Group likely disappears. And is replaced by a NEW Female Group 'anchored' by SOMI.

ChaosTheory krell Friday, August 19, 2016

youngji is a pefect example why that wont work...

krell ChaosTheory Saturday, August 20, 2016

KARA4 with YOUNGJI did two more songs. And KARA4 was successful enough to keep going for two more years, in my view. IF the CORE3 members wanted to do that (in particular GOO HARA). But I agree that KARA4 was *not* as successful as KARA5, before NICOLE and JIYOUNG left as members. Again, I *suspect* that MISS A Group has maybe ONE more comeback left. So, in a sense, a 'going away' if you will. And likely it will NOT be as popular as in the past. BUT, with SOMI as a NEW MEMBER, that could change BIG TIME. As I said, my view is SUZY + SOMI = MONEY! Then MISS A Group disappears. And SOMI becomes the *new* ANCHOR member of a NEW Female Group for JYPe Agency; replacing MISS A.
