I LUV (아이러브) is a five-member girl group under WKS ENE. They debuted on April 30, 2019 with the digital single “Got It”.
Before their official debut, they released a digital single titled “P-Pay Song” on January 30, 2019.
I LUV made their first public during a talent showcase they held alongside Kitten Girls at Wanna Be training center. At the time, I LUV consisted of the four members Seoyun, Erika, Seoha and an unknown former member. The latter was never seen or heard from again after the showcase.
I LUV promoted as three member girl group until Erika left the team. No official announcement was made on her departure, but she was replaced by Juhwi and Chinese member Chloe (who would change her stagename to Mia in 2019 since her Korean was Kim Mia).
In December of 2018, WKS ENE revealed they were planning to make I LUV an eight member girl group. They were going to do this through line-up systems. They would first introduce the six member version of I LUV, before they would finish up with the eight member line-up. The final line-up was supposed to consist of four Korean and four Chinese members.
For the six member version, they were going to introduce Chinese member Saki and a Korean maknae. On the 29th of December, Gahyeon was revealed, but Saki never made an appearance.
At the beginning of 2019, WKS ENE let go of the eight member Korean-Chinese girl group idea and planned to make I LUV a six member group. They added Rina to the line-up and announced they were going to start promoting their debut in March.
On the 10th of February, the company announced Seoha, Juhwi and Rina had left the group due to injuries. They stated they would replace the members that had left and that fans could look forward to the new six member version of I LUV. They started introducing the new members, Dahyun, Choesang and Mari, one by one.
However, in between reveals, Chloe had either left the group or had been scrapped. There has been no official statement on her departure from the group.
After having delayed their debut a couple of times, I LUV debuted on the 30th of April with “Got It”. The music video was three days after.
