Yoojung and Doyeon were ranked in the final top 11 contestants and debuted in the girl group project I.O.I.

In March 2017, Weki Meki (then i-Teen Girls) opened a Naver V Live channel where 8 trainees introduced themselves to be a part of the next Fantagio girl group. These trainees were Elly, Yoojung, Doyeon, Sei, Lua, Rina, Lucy, and former trainee Yejin. On June 4 on V Live, Yoojung confirmed her place in the final line-up of Weki Meki as well as Sei, Lua, Elly. On June 5 on V Live, Doyeon confirmed her place in the final line-up as well as Lucy, Rina, and unseen trainee Ji Suyeon.

On July 6, Fantagio revealed that their new girl group would be called Weki Meki.
