Wanna One takes their final bow


Leaving behind a short, albeit stunning, legacy, boy band Wanna One shared their final goodbye with fans on Sunday at the Gocheok Sky Dome, western Seoul.

The group held their final concert series “Wanna One Concert [Therefore]” from Jan. 24 to Sunday, meeting with around 80,000 fans over the course of the four days in the same arena they first introduced themselves on Aug. 7, 2017 with their debut song “Energetic.”

The 11-member act was officially put to an end on Dec. 31 after spending a year and six months together. The group was chosen as the winners of the second season of cable channel Mnet’s audition program “Produce 101” in 2017.

The “Therefore” concert series was a chance to say goodbye to their fans and featured performances of their biggest hits from their EPs “1X1=1 (To Be One),” “1-1=0 (Nothing Without You)” and “0+1=1 (I Promise You).”

Each of the group’s members - Kang Daniel, Park Ji-hoon, Lee Dae-hwi, Kim Jae-hwan, Ong Seong-wu, Park Woo-jin, Lai Kwan-lin, Yoon Ji-sung, Hwang Min-hyun, Bae Jin-young and Ha Sung-woon - will return to their respective agencies to focus on their own careers.
