IOI's comeback reportedly shaky, insider says discussions for reunion have stopped


IOI's comeback is reportedly shaky according to an insider.

The 'Produce 101' project girl group was expected to reunite for a comeback in October, and due to the members' schedules, the comeback was then delayed to December. An insider has now commented on rumors that IOI may not make a comeback at all.

Though IOI was planned to return as 7 members without Jeon So Mi and main vocalist Yoo Yeon Jung, it's recently been reported former PRISTIN member Kyulkyung won't be able to join due to her promotions in China, and Choi Yoo Jung will be taking a hiatus due to health issues. Along with the missing members, Mnet's 'Produce' series have been under scrutiny for vote rigging allegations.

An insider stated, "CJENM is no longer discussing the IOI members' reunion. The comeback song has not been selected, and it's not even in the process of being produced. With Jeon So Mi, Yoo Yeon Jung, Choi Yoo Jung, and Kyulkyung's participation no longer clear, the momentum for the reunion has faded. The police investigation into CJENM is also making it difficult for a reunion." 

Stay tuned for updates.

This is so sad, but I think a lot of people sort of expected this. It's been shaky from the beginning, and while I appreciate the efforts of some companies to make it work even though their idol has a busy schedule (looking at you Chungha and thank you for that), other companies don't seem too keen on the idea. They waited too long, and this is the price that's being paid. It was a great dream, but I hate to say that it may be time to let that dream go and let the girls move on.
