IZ*ONE’s Cool, Dramatic, Groovy, Luxurious Songs! | PRODUCE101, PRODUCE48, AKB48, K-Pop, J-Pop

IZ*ONE is a female band that was originated from an audition program called PRODUCE48, which is a part of the PRODUCE101 series that gave birth to I.O.I, Wanna One, X1, and JO1. Many members of AKB48 sister groups, which had already been famous in Japan and some other Asian countries, participated in this audition. As a result, IZ*ONE attracted a lot of attention and became quite popular.

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 and lovely girls have released a lot of snazzy songs in a short period of time. We’ve put together a list of IZ*ONE’s music videos that are cool, dramatic, groovy, and luxurious. Please look for your favorites!

1. IZ*ONE “Panorama”

The music video is spectacular and luxurious, and the vivid backdrops, snappy dance moves, tight bass make it invigorating The glittering dresses, floral print one-pieces, and crisp black outfits are the perfect way to show off the girls’ fancy!

2. IZ*ONE “Highlight”

In this song, you can enjoy the tense and delicate tune and the girls’ singing voices. Despite being idols, they don’t sing in the chorus much, the choreography is moderate, the composition lets you listen to the music itself! The song is so good that you will feel like listening to it again and again.

3. IZ*ONE “La Vie en Rose”

This is the debut single of IZ*ONE. They all look fresh and cute, having just finished their auditions. Thanks to the sleek and stylish costumes and the beautiful video, they look stunning! On the other hand, they show a solid ability in dance, as they have been selected through a strict audition process. The track in itself is also great due to the combination of its dainty and tense!

4. IZ*ONE “Merry-Go-Round”

This is a fun song that is a bit disco-like. The serious tone of the bridge helps to keep the optimism of the chorus, haha. Perfect and classy!

5. IZ*ONE “Sequence”

This song impresses with its groovy bass. As usual, the members’ dancing is sharp but elegant as well.


This is a quite up-tempo song. It features dramatic backing and running vocalization.


The girls’ cute visuals and vocals are sweet, and the intense bass, brass sounds, and fill-ins are spicy. Their contrast is awesome! The images and the tune are dramatic and full of stimulation!

8. IZ*ONE “Mise-en-Scène”

This is a song from IZ*ONE’s last mini-album “One-reeler”. All of the pieces on it are very high quality. So listen to them all together!

9. IZ*ONE “Suki to Iwasetai”

IZ*ONE’s debut single in Japan. Once listening to IZ*ONE’s stunning songs, this song sounds like very Japanese music and a bit out of place, haha. But, after listening to it about five times, you’ll somehow get hooked!

The following article is about Japanese songs by K-pop girl groups including IZ*ONE. Please have a look!

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!
