IZ*ONE fans angry at Miyawaki Sakura and Yabuki Nako's participation in HKT48 concert

IZ*ONE
Fans are unhappy about Miyawaki Sakura and Yabuki Nako's participation in HKT48 concert. 

On December 2, HKT48 announced that the two members, who are currently promoting in IZ*ONE, will participate in HKT48's 7th-anniversary concert on December 15. 


To this, IZ*ONE fans filed complaints because Miyawaki Sakura and Yabuki Nako have broken the promise for IZ*ONE promotions. 

In the past, the Japanese members of IZ*ONE stated they would be halting AKB48 promotions for 2 years and 6 months to focus solely on IZ*ONE. With this in mind, IZ*ONE fan clubs have come together and posted an official letter, stating, "We oppose their participation in the concert that violates (IZ*ONE's) group promotions. We demand HKT48 cancel Miyawaki Sakura and Yabuki Nako's participation in the event."

HKT48 and IZ*ONE have not yet shared a response to the issue yet.

"We oppose (...) We demand"...

I am not exaggerating when I say I've never seen fans as self-entitled as k-fans.

they literally think the world revolved around them, everyone has to do what they say and if you say no you're an asshole and deserve to be cancelled, and idols are their puppets and serve them on a silver platter. No one in the world is as toxic as Korean Ent fans. First they think one stanning is okay, one stanning is only a problem in SK, they attack others solely for their irrelevant opinions and always start problems. I have never seen a bunch of toxic people besides k fans. It's ridiculous.

But honestly, netizens aren't exactly wrong on this because they aren't supposed to be participating in any activities that are outside of IZ One. It was like this for IOI, DIA had to promote without Chaeyeon. For Wanna One, NU'EST and Hot Shot promote without Minhyun and Sungwoon. There's really no reason for there to be an exception for IZ One. It's kind of unfair.

Will performing at the HKT concert prevent them from attending an IZ*ONE schedule? If not then what are people complaining about? Also they could have booked this performance before they got into IZ*ONE.

WHO CARES?


unlike past contestants the Japanese members are giving up A LOT considering they are ranked among the Top 20 out of 100+ girls and by the time they come back their ranking will be gone as people move on to prettier young members


its barely been 2 months since IZ*ONE debut just let the girls have 1 more moment with their fans

Actually in the long run, they are gaining more than they are losing. They are opening up more opportunities not only for themselves but also for their groups internationally. The 48 groups have been moving stagnantly especially after the graduation of their pioneer members. Their current top members are not as impactful as their seniors and AkiP needed to venture internationally to sustain these groups in the long run.

People are acting like they're the only members who are going to embark on solo adventures.

Within those 2 years and 6 months some group members are gonna have more solo activities then others.

So let them earn money while they can people.

The contract only states they will be promoting solely as members of IZ*ONE, no one ever stated that the members cannot have projects without the other members. In this case Sakura and Nako are attending as guests in HKT48's concert no one is saying they are back with HKT48, it's nothing different to when Sakura, Nako, and Hitomi performs with AKB in FNS.

Also it's not like HKT is promoting a new single, they are doing a concert and I'm pretty sure there are lots of time when kpop groups would invite members of other groups as guests in their concert, so how is this any different from that?

its their anniversary! i am sure this is also an event for them to say their goodbyes to their hkt fans. also, IZ*ONE probably still needs to rely on jlines popularity and influence in Japan for a smooth debut there, i don't think these so-called fans are thinking straight.

Ok so I don't like the K-Fans attitude BUT they are not wrong, Sukura, and Nako are not just guest performers that would maybe collaborate or perform their own songs. They are actually taking part of the group as members. If this was allowed why haven't IOI and Wanna One members "guested" on their original groups concert

i think its okay if they participate in the concert since its going to be one of their last activity as hkt48 members in this year also they have hkt48 fans too who wish to see them, and in my opinion they should continue being part of both group if they have proper time management with that you get alot more content.

I’m not even going to defend them because they did say all of their promotions would be halted for 2 years. There’s probably a good reason for this but they owe their fans an explaination.

No promotions will happen in that "ANNIVERSARY" "CONCERT" ... Those are two quotations because people don't know AKB48 culture.. and that anniversary and send-off are part of their culture.. It's not a promotion! Explanation? ahhaah It's not the lack of explanation that's causing the problem.. it's the lack of understanding.

All is bussiness. That participation in the concert will help Iz*one gain more fans in Japan, so the agency let the girls go. And the Korean fans complaining about it, will make noise, but at the end, when the next Iz*one album (or single) comes out they will buy it anyway.

I understand why the fans are displeased with this situation, consider IZ'ONE was created from a reality show which the fans heavily participate and involved from the start.

And the fact the fans put their effort and money into the group to see them success, not for watching them go to some other group and create buzz (loophole or not, especially to the AKB/HKT event which may directly be their competitor in Japan market, not to mention Sashihara Rino used to say the girls who went to Korea are losers, so yeah...)


I used to follow AKB48 for many years so I understand the sentimentalism from the girls, but they SIGNED the exclusive contract themselves, no one forced them to. So if they want to go back to Japan...

DON'T PARTICIPATE IN PD48 and take the spots away from more deserved members (hell imo they were in group to raise awareness in Japan in the first place, and now they promote in other groups activities...)

or learn from Matsui Jurina, QUIT THE SHOW

That was Tano Yuuka not Sasshi, and she got so much heat from her statement and later on graduated. Also based on OTR's announcements the exclusivity contract only stops them from promoting under 48G it doesn't stop them from attending and performing in 48G events as members of IZ*ONE, this is why the FNS performance is not an issue. They are attending an anniversary concert not a promotional activity, if Nako and Sakura were part of the new HKT single then yes that would be counted as promotion, but since that's not happening then we cannot say they are promoting with HKT48.

Alright the K-fans have big attitude I give them that but I can understand where they are coming from.

I mean come on.. They are there as 'izone members', the 'guest performers' at their original group concert. Who are they trying to kid man? And what does that even mean? Are they going to perform Izone's songs? Or will they only be present at a certain segment of the concert? If they are going as Izone members, then at least invite the rest of the members too.. At least it will look like a legit Izone group activity..

Yeah because a group only inviting a single member of another group to perform in their concert never happened before.


Their contract is consistent with every other kpop group, the members are able to participate in individual activities and perform as guests in the events/concerts of other groups, this concept is not new. Just because they are performing the concert of their original group doesn't mean the old rules should not apply.

Yea because when a group 'invites' their original members who previously agreed to halt their group activities to 'guest' on their group concert, it sounds legit and convincing af.


Now we shall see whether they are just "guest appearance" or are full blown "guest performing".

Get Real. Do you understand that trainees are financially in debt for many years until they Agencies feel they have made enough money for the executives, investors and agency owners first? This should be illegal in all of Asia. From the time they sign they should earn 85 % of the profits for their work and sales. If they need to attend a particular concert for one of these agencies they supposedly "owe" money too that might lower they debts. Please live in the real world of Asian idols for a second. Stop your Narcissistic demands. Be a true Fan. They are not your slaves so please be loyal to your idols real life situation.

If most of these "We demand" people had Mommy or Daddy take away their credit cards for more than a week they faces would turn a shade of blue that has not been invented yet.

I don't see the problem unless IZ*ONE is promoting the same day or whatnot. I asked the question before when this arose in the first place. Was it JUST AKB48 promotions or was HKT48 included as well?

Fan clubs making official statements complaining about promotions that will help them to promote IZ*ONE in Japan, what are these kids smoking.


It's just one lousy concert and it might as well be a farewell show for Sakura and Nako, I doubt they'll have the same standing in the group after two years' absence. Sakura, Nako, and Hitomi participated in a last AKB single too and there was no drama there. These so-called fans are either akgaes, J-line antis, or looking to manufacture drama.
