    Earlier, Mnet officials and agencies representing the stars announced that the popular girl group will be splitting up.

    Sad news appeared online on 10 March as the talent agencies behind the popular girl group IZ*ONE announced that they hadn't been able to agree terms to extend the artists' contracts and therefore it had been decided to disband the band after two and a half years.

    The 12 members of IZ*ONE are expected to continue their activities as a group until April and then to go their separate ways as they all return to their home agencies. Mnet, the television channel which hosted the talent show Produce 48 in which the group members met in 2018, shared the statement and promised to support the stars as solo artists.

    A two-day online concert “ONE, THE STORY” will be held on 13 and 14 March in order to say goodbye to the fans, who supported the group since they debuted.

    IZ*ONE was formed as a project group with 12 members through the joint efforts of Swing Entertainment, Off The Record and Mnet Entertainment. Their contracts were signed for two and a half years of promotion.

    WIZ*ONE the official name for IZ*NE fans shared their outpourings of grief on SNS.
