    The two year ban comes from Yoshimoto, which J-Line aren't affiliated with. It's just NMB girls that get screwed.

    I'm so confused, why did this happen? TIF is usually a weekend event and the website timetable only shows events happening on Friday (2nd), Saturday (3rd) and Sunday (4th). Were they the only ones to get an additional stream? And that only for 10 minutes?

    On the timetable, they are listed for Hot Stage (11:45 - 11:55) on Friday, October 2nd. Did that not get broadcast or did it get cancelled and this serves as a replacement...?

    I've watched their live performance and to think of that, Beware is actually a great song. They seem really having fun performing the song.

    Oh there's a 'Permanent' marker on their set, conveniently 6 months before their supposed 'disbandment'. OTR does nothing by chance given their record of attention to detail. I think IZONE going on for longer than their original contract is a given now that they've had huge success and is a giant gg in Korea. Just a matter of how and when they will announce it. J-line could still return to 48G and IZONE could be active OT9 for some time. Korean agencies don't have any reason to be against contract extension. Dunno about AKS and J-line tho.. or they could go kennin?

    I think that will depend on the relation between Vernalossom and OTR but since I think the relation is not in good terms I don't think a kennin is possible so if J-line wants to keep being in IZ*ONE after ZOZI they'll have to graduate.

    I'm don't know what this video is about but It seems about the new ablum and the previous releases, also it seems this video labeled the 3 first single as Jpop, interesting.
    If anyone can translate or find a translation for this, thanks in advance.

    It's just a basic overview on their releases and activities thus far in a very otaku-like tone. Talks about the concept, who participated in composition, lyrics etc... And yeah every Japanese songs whether released by Japanese artists or K-pop artists are labeled J-pop so nothing new

    Lots of comments on Yahoo Japan for Sakura's interview about K-pop and J-pop idols. A good read. In short, in Japan people watch idols grow in terms of skills and K-pop requires you to be at a certain level before debut. She was crying when she first went to Korea because she's never practiced that much and language barrier. Talks about cultural differences mainly in Korea you don't have to be too polite and can say 'no' whereas in Japan she was basically conforming to everyone around her.

    Also the title of the article has the term 先見の明 which roughly means foresight and refers to her ditching 48G to become a Kpop idol and re-debuting. Foresight because K-pop styled idol mainly Twice and now NiziU are really popular in Japan right now.

    Actually that's not true, in Japan kpop groups song, even if those are Japanese original are labeled as kpop. You can check that out.
    Also I wonder why Beware wasn't in the same category as the other songs.
    It seems each management has its own perspective.
    Well it seems that Sakura has made up her mind, she wants to be an artist and wants everyone to know her as an artist.
    At this point it feels the all 3 want/plan to stay in Korea. And based on the level of promotion not only for the release but also for the group in general in this period of time increases the chances that IZ*ONE will become permanent. If that hasn't happened already and it's just that they haven't announced the news yet.

    I wouldn't say she ditched 48g. Sounds like she expected IZ*ONE to be a kennin position and was surprised to find her HKT activities would be halted.

    I also didn't get the sense she was done with 48g. Just that she appreciated the opportunities IZ*ONE gave her.
