I.O.I will keep their promise with fans and reunite to celebrate the 5th anniversary of their debut.
According to Sports Kyunghyang, I.O.I will come together as one group to mark their 5th anniversary. They will host a live broadcast on May 4th, the day of their debut, and communicate with fans as I.O.I.
“I.O.I members will gather on May 4th and host a special 5th-anniversary live broadcast through KT Seezn,” reported Sports Kyunghyang. The members have already talked this event over. When I.O.I dropped their last album, ‘miss me?’ in October 2016, members promised to reunite as one group five years later. And on May 4th, 2021, the promise will come true.
I.O.I discussed reuniting back in 2019 as a 9-member group, but the plan fell through. And despite the tight schedule, all 11 members have cleared the day for the live broadcast.
Somi, Sejeong, Yoojung, Chungha, Sohye, Kyulkyung, Chaeyeon, Doyeon, Mina, Nayoung, and Yeonjung debuted as I.O.I, the project group of Mnet’s Produce 101 Season 1. The team officially disbanded on January 31st, 2017. But until then, they dominated music charts and music shows and broke various records in terms of album sales. Each member is continuing their solo performances or their acting career in respective agencies.
