Lastly, IZ*ONE members J and K expressed their desire for a unit group but also acknowledged that it might be impossible to happen.
Dispatch also stated that some of the companies are planning to debut new girl groups, in which some IZ*ONE members might be included.
While CJ ENM revealed that IZ*ONE's reunion will not push through, the fundraising campaign of fans continues. So far, they have accumulated 574.26 million won.
Moreover, the committee leading the girl group's relaunch project will try to talk to CJ ENM again and also send proposals to members' respective agencies with the hope that even one IZ*ONE unit will be formed.
