A sad day in k-pop has arrived. I think this is I.O.I's final song before disbandment. Today YMC Entertainment, the company responsible for I.O.I's activities released a music video for the group. The title of the video is “Downpour”. From what I understand, this will be their final track as a group. There will be no mini album or additional tracks attached to this release. It is simply a final track. I.O.I has come a long way and will be missed by many.
Produce 101 is a competition based televised show that puts 101 trainees from different companies together to compete for the prize of debuting in a group before they actually debut with their main groups. I.O.I is the result from the first season of this show and as they made their way through the industry, they've definitely grown. The music video for “Downpour” was footage and scenes from Produce 101 and the formation of I.O.I. The music video tore me apart and left only remnants of my whole self.
As bad as the music video was, the song was heart-wrenching as well. Of course, as expected, it was a ballad that seemed to be focusing on the good times and the bad times these girls had. Anything that is worth obtaining is a struggle. I think that is a lesson these girls learned through all of this. These 11 girls have grown, struggled, learned, and became friends through this program. This is goodbye but we look forward to their separate work in the future.
Are you going to miss I.O.I? How big of an impact did they have on your life or the music you listened to? This may be the end, but we will not forget. Thank you for the support. Please give this a like and comment your thoughts and opinions about the disbandment of I.O.I. Also share this post on social media. I'll see ya in the next one.
