On September 28, I.O.I’s agency YMC Entertainment spoke with news outlets and said, “I.O.I’s new album will be released on October 17. Although there is no chance of this changing it is scheduled to be released that week.”
It appears as though while October 17 is the scheduled date, it could be changed to another day of the same week.
The agency also addressed the potential of doing a live broadcast of their comeback through Mnet and stated, “That part has not been confirmed yet. We are currently in discussion.”
Previously, it was revealed that B1A4’s Jinyoung and Rhymer are participating in producing songs in the group’s upcoming mini-album. Furthermore, JYP Entertainment founder Park Jin Young will be producing I.O.I’s comeback title track.
