Yoojung and Doyeon‘s future career plans are set as the date of I.O.I‘s disbandment is nearing.
It has been officially announced that I.O.I’s Choi Yoojung and Kim Doyeon signed contracts with their company Fantagio and have begun preparing for their future debut that would be some time during the first half of this year. According to Fantagio, “Choi Yoo Jung and Kim Do Yeon have signed their exclusive contracts in the midst of their activities as I.O.I. They are now officially artists under our label.” Although the two were promoting with I.O.I this past year, they were still technically trainees under their respective company until now.
In regards to whether Yoojung and Doyeon would be debuting as solo artists or members of a girl group, an official said, “They could debut as a part of our girl group in the early half of this year. However it is hard to confirm anything since the concept and members are not yet ready to be discussed.”
Although it has been heartbreaking for fans as they watch the last days of I.O.I pass by, it has been reassuring to know the confirmation of the some of the members’ future activities. Whatever they do next, let’s all continue to root for each and every one of them!

I.O.I’s final schedule has been set for the end of January for I.O.I’s last concert before disbandment. In other news, I.O.I’s sub-unit will be releasing a single this month.
