IZ*ONE in La Vie en Rose

IZ*ONE has become one of the favorite project girl groups in Korea, Mnet's project K-pop female group has gone on to become very successful that the announcement of their disbanding decision has created a chaotic pandemonium.

It was announced that in April, the girl group's contract with Mnet would be expiring, giving the band a choice of either disbanding or renewing their contract.

The revelation of the group's collective decision to disband instead of signing a new contract has angered and saddened many of their fans. Each girl comes from different agencies, and according to reports, they will return to their original agency.

On March 11th, a massive protest through a written statement by the band's fans has circulated. In the published statement, fans are threatening to boycott the member's agencies if IZ*ONE disbands. They are asking for the girls to reconsider their decision and to extern their contracts.

More and more netizens are joining the plea of IZ*ONE fans. There has been no answer from Mnet or from any of the agencies the individual girls come from.

In an excerpt from the statement, fans are demanding Mnet to keep on supporting the 12-member group. In one of their demands, they want that the girl group members remain unchanged and to continue activities in the future.

The statement event went as far as threatening Mnet to immediately withdraw their statement regarding IZ*ONE disbanding. They further share that they will boycott all future activities planned by each agency after members return to their original agency. They specified that the boycott is not towards the members but towards their companies.

There have been talks regarding members considering forming unit groups after the end of their contracts. Fans are not satisfied with this announcement as they want the group to remain unchanged throughout their career.

Mnet has yet to address these complaints.
