She’ll be releasing her very first mini album, titled “Hands on Me,” with title song “Why Don’t You Know” on June 8.

I.O.I to Release Song Before Disbandment

I.O.I will be releasing a song before their disbandment later this month!

If you’re an I.O.I fan, you’re not looking forward to January 31, the day the project group officially disbands and goes their separate ways.

The group was originally formed through the reality survival show, “Produce 101,” in which 11 trainees from various companies were chosen to join the group I.O.I.

Since then, the members have had many activities together and separate from the group, such as Sejeong and Mina with their group, Gugudan, Yeunjung with WJSN, and Chaeyeon with DIA.

However, the girls are giving us one last present before they say goodbye, so let’s make sure to give them all the support in their current and future careers!

They debuted in February under Fantagio Entertainment with “Hide & Seek,” and have since released titles like “Breathless” and “Confession.” They’re well-known for their energetic stages and refreshing, catchy music. Many of their non-title songs are great as well, such as “Morning Call” and “Your Love.”

I.O.I

I.O.I is one of 2016’s hottest groups, and there’s a good reason why! This girl group consists of 11 members from the show “Produce 101.” They are an international girl group with catchy music and promising talent.  Their most-recent song is “Very Very Very,” which has an addictive, cute pop beat. Unfortunately, they will disband in 2017 and return to their respective agencies, but they’ve given their fans many unforgettable memories!

Pentagon is Cube Entertainment‘s newest boy group and is consisted of 10 Korean, Chinese, and Japanese members. They debuted in October with “Gorilla” and just had a comeback with “Can You Feel It.” The group was formed on the show “Pentagon Maker,” where they were put to the test in various categories, such as dance and teamwork. Overall, Pentagon has a lot of potential, with impressive vocals, rap, and dance abilities.

WJSN (Cosmic Girls)

WJSN debuted under Starship Entertainment in February with “Would You Like?” and title song “Mo Mo Mo.” They are coming back in January with a new album, “From.WJSN,” along with “I Wish.” Their song, “Secret,” is one of my favorite tracks from them, with a magical and mystical themes and a sound resonating with refined, lullaby-like qualities. They have an amazing aesthetic, music style, and many beautiful, talented members. As they develop their individual and group identities, they’re definitely a group to look out for!

KNK

Under YNB Entertainment, this five-member boy group debuted as its company’s first male idol group. With the group having an average height of 185 cm (6.1 ft), they have gained much attention not only for their tall stature, but also for their breath-taking debut with “KNOCK“. Aiming to ‘knock on k-pop’ as the name KNK implies, the boys have captured the hearts of fans with their harmonic voices and quirky personalities. Feel free to become a “tinkerbell” along many others through listening to their music and keeping up with their weekly livestreams!
