Since IZ*ONE disbanded in April 2021, nearly all of the members have gone on to have careers as soloists, actresses, or members in K-Pop groups.
Sakura and Chaewon joined LE SSERAFIM, Wonyoung and Yujin joined IVE, and Jo Yuri, Choi Yena, and Kwon Eunbi are successful solo artists!
One former member who has been surprisingly quiet, however, is Lee Chaeyeon. She has been highly praised for her dancing abilities and people were excited to see what she would do after her time with IZ*ONE was complete.
However, besides participating on the dance competition show Street Woman Fighter — in which fans believe she was unfairly treated — she has released very little content, and updates as to her future plans where nowhere to be found.
Now, though, a comment from her sister Chaeryeong of ITZY might hint at a solo debut album by the former IZ*ONE member!

While Chaeryeong didn’t actually say that what Chaeyeon is working on is a solo album, but when the ITZY member says Chaeyeon is “putting something together”, the caption reads, “MY SISTER IS PUTTING TOGETHER AN ALBUM”.
Fans of Chaeyeon are hopeful that this means the talented idol will finally get her time to shine, so we’ll just have to wait and see if it’s true!
