CJ ENM Officially Responds To Reports Of IZ*ONE Getting Back Together
CJ ENM has issued an official statement regarding the possibility of IZ*ONE getting back together.
On June 19, Korean news outlet Sports Kyunghyang reported that IZ*ONE is currently in talks to reunite, with the majority of the members’ agencies leaning towards the project group getting back together.
However, CJ ENM (Mnet’s parent company) clarified that same day that while discussions about IZ*ONE’s future are ongoing, nothing has yet been decided.
A spokesperson for the company stated, “Regarding IZ*ONE’s getting back together, while we are currently in discussions with the members’ agencies and leaving open a wide variety of possibilities, nothing has been decided.”
CJ ENM also formally addressed IZ*ONE fans’ recent crowdfunding efforts to raise funds for a potential reunion. While the company expressed gratitude for the fans’ support, they made clear that even if IZ*ONE did get back together, CJ ENM would not be using the funds raised by fans to finance any future releases by the group.
The spokesperson stated, “We are well aware of the fans’ fundraising. We are grateful for their support. However, even if IZ*ONE does get back together and we move forward with the production of a new album, we plan to fund it ourselves.”
IZ*ONE was formed in 2018 as a temporary project group on Mnet’s idol audition program “Produce 48,” and they made their official debut in October of that year. After promoting together for two and a half years, the group officially disbanded in April of this year.
