    Well, as long as fans are Happy with having Nako as a member there's no problem. And yeah, she has an uniqueness you can't find in another group.
    About what he mentions if there's no other proof I don't think it'll change that much because there are many things that have been discovered now.
    About the text votes, as I said before it will be used as evindence, and it's very likely that's the starting point of the investigation. As I read somewhere, of the police went to investigate specific agencies, then that means they already knew what was the real ranking, if I remember well, they got the data from the telephone company that provided the service. Which makes me think that even if it's not released by the police someone might leak it after the case is done or even one of these days. There many people who wants to use that data for their personal purposes it might even be used for exhortation.

    and why its wrong for fans to defend their faves. everyone have the rights to express their opinion including all sakura fans. one can have their favourite and could careless about the other members. especially in this rough time where it can jeopardize the future of their favourite member.
    If wonyoung's company allegedly doing dirty, her position have the right to be questioned.

    NEWS: The Official IZ*ONE Japanese Fan Club Begins Refunding Members. They are also no longer accepting new members.

    If anything, they should thank Starship to buy her that number 1 position which let her centered the singles. Oh, but unfortunately they got caught badly.

    Real talk, if Sakura unleashed her full powers and the misguided anger of her fanbase, she could even destroy the much vaunted and taken for granted Sakamichi groups.

    I pray she'll return to HKT feeling good about the group... for HKT itself.

    Plot twist: AKS change the positions of the girls for every japanese single, including the center.
    And actually, I think that's the reason why the only japanese A-side they've performed in Korea and kpop festivals is Suki to Iwasetai. Becuase is the only one with Wonyoung as center. I don't count the Buenos Aires performance we saw in Our Time because even tough ito happened in Korea was released in the Japanese market, and it was a private event for the fans.

    Agree with this 100%

    Heck, I can be labeled as a Sakura hater and all but I don't see anything wrong if her fans are demanding for the rank she really earned.

    Besides, with all the push and screentime she got from the show, not ranking #1 was falling short of what's to be expected from her.

    :awesome:
    Umm compared to 46 she would be destroyed right? Look at this list
    https://ameblo.jp/kazchan345/entry-12465633419.html

    Anyway i gotta admit that being in izone helped her popularity as her rank increased but since izone gonna disband soon, comeback to 48 will do no good for her. Best chance to stay relevant is solo carreer as model/actrees (she has the looks but not the talent) or 46 transfer/kennin :awesome::awesome:

    Even if sakamichi is more popular act, she is too ambitious to be just techi’s backdancer.

    She is just screwed over. Just release the real votes and she is safe. After izone disbanded she can stay in korea and would still relevant though it will not in izone level popularity. Some koreans would still rolled eyes to her because she’s japanese and because she’s from izone, the product of fraud.

    Anyway i wonder if right now there is split inside izone members. Would they still consider the certain members close friend/family even if it will cause harm to their future? I bet some agency would give some warning to keep distance from certain members to avoid bad effects from those members. After all agency only care about their artist and wouldn’t want their artist to be stained from the bad effect of the other members.

    I keep seeing people say to compensate the girls who got rigged out.

    How do you exactly compensate for this? How do you compensate for being rigged out of an opportunity of a lifetime? For taking your own time off for the show and then being rigged out? For having to make drastic changes to your own career for being rigged out? For all the trauma that has been caused by this bullshit? How do you put a value on something that has such an impact of life-long consequences?

    You can't put a value on something like that, but at least some compensation is better than none.

    I think the compensation is in regards to the delayed comeback, not the Produce series.

    Is it possible AKS and Mnet comes to a agreement that, if the rigged members whoever they are leaves the group, the rightful ones Miho, Miru and Miu can replace them in Izone? I would mention Miyu, but she's gonna debut so.

    No, then that group would not be Izone. The 12 members we have right now are Izone, for such a large ensemble they have a near perfect mix of dancing, singing and visual and plugging in other people would ruin that balance. Not to mention that it's the bonds between members that have grown over the last year are important to the members and to fans. What possible chemistry could Chowon, Myao or any of these others have with existing Izone members?

    Tbh it would be too weird to replace members, especially at this point

    With that said, whoever got rigged out should get another opportunity to debut in a Kpop group, with a group similar to IBI & JBJ

    This goes for both those from Produce 48 & Produce X 101
