IZ*ONE’s Fancy, Fresh, Graceful, Pretty, Sweet Songs! | PRODUCE48, PRODUCE101, AKB48, K-Pop, J-Pop

IZ*ONE is a girl group that was born out of the PRODUCE48 audition of the PRODUCE101 series, which has also created I.O.I, Wanna One, X1, and JO1. In the case of PRODUCE48, many members of AKB48 sister groups, which had already been famous in Japan and some other Asian countries, also participated. So, it’s no wonder that IZ*ONE’s popularity was ignited.

IZ*ONE is comprised of nine Koreans (Kim Chaewon, Lee Chaeyeon, Kwon Eunbi, Kang Hyewon, Kim Minju, Jang Wonyoung, Ahn Yujin, Choi Yena, and Jo Yuri) and three Japanese (Hitomi Honda, Nako Yabuki, and Sakura Miyawaki). These fashionable, beautiful, and charming girls have released many stylish songs in a short period of time. We’ve compiled a list of the fancy, fresh, graceful, and sweet music videos of IZ*ONE, a group that is full of such attractiveness. Please try to find your favorite song on the list!

1. IZ*ONE “Pretty”

The theme of that song is “pretty,” and of course, the girls and the tune are pretty! But the costumes are rather casual, rather than pretty, haha.


You can enjoy the cute voices like spoken lines by IZ*ONE members. In particular, Hitomi’s “I’m Curious about You” is so adorable! The refrain of the chorus “I’m So Curious” is also catchy.

3. IZ*ONE “Airplane”

Their dance moves with arms and marine-style summer clothes are cute. The chorus, which is almost like a spoken line, is also breezy and pleasant!


The reserved vocalization is endearing. The dancing is not easy but somehow graceful! Yuri’s blonde twin bun hair suits her. 

5. IZ*ONE “We Together”

Appendix A. PRODUCE48 “We Together”

This song was one of the assignments for the audition program PRODUCE48. The first video is a performance by IZ*ONE, and the second is by the participants of PRODUCE48. The melodious, cute vocals and nice backbeat drums and bass are refreshing.

6. IZ*ONE “Colors”

This is the first song of their debut mini-album in Korean. The long tones of the members and the rhythmic backing music are just fresh. Yet, it’s not monotonous at all. So you’ll never get bored!

7. IZ*ONE “Up”

The girls’ refreshing voices, merry dancing, and colorful, fancy costumes are all cute. They are sweet enough to overpower the hard-hitting drums! Further, their expressions are gentle and natural.

8. IZ*ONE “Island”

This is an up-tempo and refreshing song. The vocalists’ voices are charming and fun. Listen to this song on a commute and lift your mood!

Appendix B. PRODUCE48「PICK ME」


The first video is performed by PRODUCE48 trainees, some of whom became IZ*ONE; the second is by PRODUCE101 JAPAN trainees, became JO1. The PRODUCE101 series always has great theme songs!

Unfortunately, IZ*ONE disbanded in April 2021 after two and a half years of activity. The disband is regrettable even though the decision to disband was made in advance because IZ*ONE enjoyed phenomenal popularity. Many of the members of I.O.I from the first PRODUCE101 audition are still active in solo and groups. Thus, the members of IZ*ONE will also be active in other girl groups in the future! Can’t wait to see them!
