Project girl group I.O.I opened up about feelings their day of disbandment is coming closer and hinted at a reunion in a press showcase event Monday.

“We were all aware that we are involved in a project group,” group leader Lim Na-young said. “I could feel that the end of the project is drawing near. I want the end of the road to be beautiful.”

“We promised ourselves that we would keep the notion of ‘end’ at bay, but instead that we are starting afresh as a full-unit girl group,” said Jung Chae-yeon.

The 11-member girl group’s second album “Miss Me?” was released Sunday at midnight, with its lead track “Very Very Very” instantly sweeping local charts.

When asked about plans for a reunion, member Yoo Yeon-jung said I.O.I would “reunite after five years.”

The interview came after their performance of “Very Very Very,” composed by JYP Entertainment chief Park Jin-young.

Since the debut in May as a full unit with “Chrysalis,” the girl group, made up of winners of Mnet’s competition program “Produce 101,” has continued subunit activities with some of its members pursuing individual activities.

The group’s subunit activities with “Whatta Man” were the first to earn it a trophy on a music program.
