IZ*ONE’s Miyawaki Sakura Temporarily Leaves DJ Role At Japanese Radio Show
IZ*ONE’S Miyawaki Sakura will temporarily be stepping away from the DJ seat.
On November 28, Japanese media reported that the IZ*ONE member will be stepping down from her radio show, “Under the Tree with Sakura.” AKB48 member Yokoyama Yui will be filling in for Miyawaki Sakura in the meantime. Of the change in DJs, Yokoyama Yui said, “[Sakura] asked me to tell you all not to be sad. I’m certain Sakura will be able to return to the show shortly. In the meantime, AKB48 members will rotate as DJs for the show. I believe that IZ*ONE will be able to return.”
The departure is one of many events that the IZ*ONE members have had to put aside after the controversy surrounding Mnet’s “Produce 48.” Since the controversy, all of the group’s Japanese promotions have been halted, and the release of their first full album has been postponed indefinitely.
