Watch: IZ*ONE’s Miyawaki Sakura, Yabuki Nako, And Honda Hitomi Head Back To Japan
The three Japanese members of IZ*ONE have left for home.
IZ*ONE was formed as a project group through Mnet’s idol survival show “Produce 48.” The group debuted on October 29, 2018 as a temporary group that would promote for two and a half years. Mnet confirmed in a statement last month that IZ*ONE’s activities will end in April as scheduled, and the group held their final online concert “ONE, THE STORY” on March 13 and 14.
On April 29, Miyawaki Sakura, Yabuki Nako, and Honda Hitomi made their way to Incheon International Airport to return to Japan.
The previous day, Miyawaki Sakura shared during her radio show, “After the concert, there was a period when we didn’t have any scheduled activities, so we spent time together at the dorm, went out for meals, or went traveling.” She added, “I will use everything I learned and gained through IZ*ONE as well as everything I learned from WIZ*ONE (IZ*ONE’s fan club) and live my life without regrets.”
Last month, it was reported that Miyawaki Sakura would be joining Big Hit Entertainment (now HYBE), but the company stated that nothing had been decided.
Dispatch revealed a video of the three members at the airport today. Honda Hitomi appears to get slightly emotional after stepping into the airport, but she pulls herself together for the photos. Watch the clip below:
