Netizens and fans were recently worried as former IZ*ONE member, Yabuki Nako, is seemingly being bullied by other members of HKT48, her Japanese group.

Notably, after her contract with IZ*ONE expired, Nako went back to Japan and officially continued her promotions with her group HKT48. Even though she went back to Japan, Nako still updates her Korean fans.
