IZ*ONE is debuting at a bad timing, according to netizens.
The 12-member girl group from 'Produce 48' announced they're making their debut on October 29. Many fans are excitedly waiting for the big day, however, some are showing concerns considering the competitive fall comebacks.
About 2 weeks before IZ*ONE's debut, IU is coming back with her 10th anniversary special single "Bbi Bbi" on October 10. A few days after IZ*ONE's debut, top boy group EXO is making a comeback on November 11. According to reports, popular girl group TWICE recently wrapped up MV filming. Their comeback date is assumed to be around mid-November. Popular boy group Wanna One confirmed their final comeback for November 19. Rumors state Red Velvet and Black Pink are also looking to make a comeback in late October or November.
Considering the star-studded comeback lineup, netizens think IZ*ONE chose a terrible timing to debut. Comments stated, "They're sandwiched among the top artists... They're going to fail", "Omg, and EXO fans have been desperately waiting since it's their comeback in a long time and it's also Wanna One's final comeback so it's going to extremely competitive", "I can already feel their failure."
