The source of rumors dated back to the incident between Wonyoung and Sakura during their times in IZ*ONE. When the group was greeting the media and fans, Wonyoung was suspected of pushing and glaring at Sakura. At the time, Wonyoung came into a rain of criticism. In response, fans came to defend that it was only a misunderstanding.

After “Produce 48”, Wonyoung ranked first while Sakura came in second. The duo became the prominent members in IZ*ONE. During these group activities, some netizens believed there were secret competitions as they were going for the center position.

Sakura still got her share of popularity despite being second.

Following IZ*ONE’s disbandment, each member had their own route to take. Wonyoung became an “Ace” in IVE while Sakura and Chaewon had an unexpected transformation as the most active duo uner HYBE.
