Mnet is still positively considering continuation of IZ*ONE's activities


On January 6, X1's members' agencies came together to discuss the future of the group, and came to the conclusion that the group will disband. This group was created through idol survival program "PRODUCE X 101". 

Similarly, IZ*ONE were also created through "PRODUCE 48", which aired in 2018. The news of X1's disbandment has led to many fans worrying about IZ*ONE. 

To which, Mnet responds:

"We are still positively considering the continuation of IZ*ONE's activities."

  1. IZ*ONE

This doesn't surprise me. The difference between IZ*ONE and X1 is that the former has already signed multiple contracts on top of the base group contract. It would be INCREDIBLY messy and most likely involve expensive litigations for them to just break all of those contracts due to the situation at hand. More than likely, they're going to push the group forward and hope to make back what they can despite the backlash, because they might potentially do worse financially if they just broke every contract and disbanded. What it could possibly come down to what each of the companies affiliated with the group, including representation, endorsement and performance venues, have to say about the situation. If they're game to stick it out with IZ*ONE despite the situation and feel confident that there is enough favor from the public to make a profit, then this group isn't going anywhere. I've a feeling that they're going to wait a bit longer to see how the dust settles with the X1 disbandment. If anything, it might turn the tides a bit further in their favor and have more fans beg that at least one group be saved from disbandment. We'll just have to wait and see........
