Updated April 30 KST:
A source of I.O.I has responded to reports of a reunion.
Regarding the reports made earlier in the morning, a source commented, “It is true that a reunion is being discussed, but nothing has been decided yet.”
On the group performing at KCON in August, a representative of CJ ENM responded, “There are currently no plans for I.O.I to appear at KCON in August.”
I.O.I is reportedly getting back together for a new round of promotions this year!
On April 30, Korean news outlet Ilgan Sports reported that according to multiple industry insiders, I.O.I has finally been confirmed for a six-month reunion in the second half of this year.
According to the new report, I.O.I will be attending KCON USA together as a group in August, and they are currently planning to release a new album in September. The group is also said to be preparing to hold a concert at the end of the year.
Although there have previously been many rumors about the “Produce 101” project group reuniting, Ilgan Sports stated that it has not been easy for the agencies of all 11 members to come to an agreement about the details of a reunion, especially since the members have been busy with their own solo and group activities following the conclusion of their promotions with I.O.I in January 2017.
According to the report, it was primarily due to the strong bond between the I.O.I members, who have been vocal about their hopes for a reunion, that this six-month plan came to pass.
