Korean media reported that IZ * ONE member Sakura Miyawaki has signed an exclusive contract with BTS’s agency Big Hit Entertainment (hereinafter referred to as Big Hit). However, on March 11, Big Hit announced its official position regarding the exclusive contract theory with Sakura Miyawaki, saying that “nothing has been decided.” The Big Hit side revealed the official position that “nothing has been decided”, but Miyawaki Sakura fans think that it is a natural reaction because IZ * ONE has not been dissolved yet.
From the end of last year, Miyawaki Sakura was told that the Chinese side would be flooded with love calls and would choose to go to China, but it seems that he decided to stay in South Korea, which has a solid foundation rather than uncertainty. If Sakura Miyawaki signs an exclusive contract with Big Hit and transfers, it is highly likely that she will join the girls group scheduled to debut this year. Big Hit is not expected to make a solo debut, and a new company name for Big Hit, Gown & Sakura Miyawaki, and a dream combination will be born as members of the HYBE Girls Group.
The Big Hit (HYBE) girls group, which is being prepared by former SM Entertainment visual director Min Hee-jin who transferred to Big Hit, is aiming to debut in 2021, and there are a total of three girls groups debuting at HYBE this year.
