The journey of the popular project girl group IZ*ONE has come to an end as the group officially disbands today, April 29 (KST.) In a report, their official contract with CJ ENM is scheduled to end today.

Previously, the group released a music video titled "Parallel Universe," a beautiful music video dedicated to WIZ*ONME's, the fandom name for IZ*ONE fans.

Clips that were used for the video were during the group's preparations for "ONE, The Story" concert, their final concert before they officially disband. Netizens commented that they were emotional and touched by the video, some having hope that IZ*ONE's contract would be renewed and theirs as a group would continue. Fans hope that they will remain together if a new unit will possibly be formed after April. 

"ONE, The Story" concert happened on March 13 and 14 and was considered their last concert and performance as a group.

IZ*ONE is composed of the following girl members: Jang Won-young, Sakura Miyawaki, Jo Yu-ri, Choi Ye-na, An Yu-jin, Nako Yabuki, Kwon Eun-bi, Kang Hye-won, Hitomi Honda, Kim Chae-won, Kim Min-ju, and Lee Chae-yeon. Mnet officially announced IZ* ONE's disbandment on March 10. Mnet, Swing Entertainment, and Off the Record discussed and shared their opinions regarding the group and its future in a statement. IZ*ONE officially debuted to the public on October 18, formed through Mnet's reality idol search show "Produce 48". The group is managed by Off the Record and Swing Entertainment.

Mnet's official announcement of IZ* ONE's disbandment last month left fans emotional on social media as the group's fate has been sealed. Many hope that their management and label would consider giving them another project or contract to keep this popular girl unit to continue performing.

The company expressed that they appreciate all the love and support that fans worldwide have given to IZ*ONE. A discussion of a possible contract extension happened early this year, but nothing has been 100% confirmed as of this time.
