WANNA ONE (Kang Daniel, Park Ji-hoon, Lee Dae-hwi, Kim Jae-hwan, Ong Sung-woo, Park Woo-jin, Lai Kuan-lin, Yoon Ji-sung, Hwang Min-hyun, Bae Jin-young, and Ha Sung-woon) has chosen to have a beautiful farewell.
A source from the industry said on Sports Today, “WANNA ONE’s contract will not be extended”. As originally scheduled, their contract will end its 1 year and 6 months of activities on March 31.
In the meantime, WANNA ONE has been discussing the extension of their contracts several times. However, there were difficulties due to sharp conflicts of interests between its agencies. Although some members even proposed to maintain WANNA ONE’s activities, at the end they agreed to disband without extending their activities.
WANNA ONE is a project group formed through the Mnet ‘Produce 101’ season 2, which was aired in 2017. After releasing their first mini album “1×1=1(TO BE ONE)” in August of the same year and holding their debut showcase concert at Sky Dome in Gocheok, WANNA ONE won the top spot in music and music charts.
Since then, WANNA ONE has continued with their stellar performances that match the phrase “group created by the nation producer” and set many new records.
WANNA ONE, who has been trying to write a new history of the music industry for a year and a half, is nearing the end. The members are expected to return to their respective agencies after disbanding and continue their activities in various fields such as solo, group, musical and acting.
