Former IZ*ONE member Nako attracted the attention of some of her Korean and global fans following her recent update. Earlier, the idol shared that she lost her AirPods, which were later on found in the trashbin. While some didn't give much attention to it, others speculated that Nako is being bullied in Japan.  

On Korean online communities, fans raised suspicions that Yabuki Nako, a former IZ*ONE, is being ostracized in her current group, HKT48, in Japan.

In April 2021, the project girl group IZ*ONE disbanded after two and a half years of promotion, and the members continued their careers as either solo artists or by re-debuting in another group.

Since Nako is already part of HKT48 even before IZ*ONE was launched, she returned to the group, which delighted fans. However, many expressed their worried hearts recently after Nako allegedly showed various signs of being bullied.

Following IZ*ONE disbandment, Nako continues to communicate with her fans in Korea as well as international fans. In particular, the online user who claimed Nako is being bullied highlighted that Nako previously shared that she lost her AirPods.

On November 19, the Japanese idol made an update that she already found her AirPods, but the place where she retrieved it surprised netizens.

"(HKT) members said they found the AirPods that I lost for more than a week. They said they found it in the trash can," Nako revealed.
