    That actually would be perfect, especially since many P48 faves are already there

    tbh i feel like if they cant continue on in iz*one, they may prefer to just stay in AKB/HKT full time rather than join some splinter kpop-ish unit lol

    My copy of the Oneiric version has just arrived from Kpop Mart via DHL, these are the member photos I received:

    The package left Korea last Thursday so I really I shoukd be happy with that speed - however I also ordered a copy of DIA's latest release from a different supplier (long story). Both left Incheon with DHL at 23:07 KST last Thursday and both arrived in Frankfurt, Germany at 19:17 local time the following day - but whille the DIA package took a direct route into the UK to arrive with me on Saturday, the IZ*ONE one strangely took a different journey taking 48 hours longer.

    I honestly can’t see AKS being done with Korea after IZ*One disbands

    But a Korean sister group (like SEO48 or BSN48) could be possible

    Maybe Hitomi could be a Kenkyuusei member, since her Korean fanbase is bigger than in Japanese one

    doesn't really change my point tho, even if AKS isn't done with Korea, if the girls no longer want to do korean activities once Iz*one disbands and would prefer to stay in their domestic groups or else graduate all together, aks can't force them to join the some new korean sister group, they'll have to find other members who want to join instead.

    4k fancams for Mery-Go-Round are being released by m2 right now~

    I watched the event (it's on YouTube) and I don't get it, if the event is for Japan then why they didn't perform any of the Japanese songs? Not even the A-sides were performed, they performed all the Korean tittle tracks and some B-sides, all from Korean discography.
    It's like there's no consideration for their Japanese singles anymore.
    The event is not even listed in their schedule or in the news section of the Japanese website.
    Honestly I don't expect a Japanese single anymore, it feels there's no intention of releasing a new one.

    I mean, I don't want to look salty, it's just that it's awful to see that among the approximately 10 songs the performed in the event none of them was from their japanese discography when that event is for Japan.
    And it's not that my thought is based on this event, in TGC and in some tv shows there has been a notorious lack of J-songs.
    I don't want to keep speculating about what could be the reason, but I can definitely see the group is being disassociated with its Japanese releases, as time goes by.
