Another Produce 101-born group has taken its toll

Wanna One

Swing Entertainment have confirmed the sad news for Wannables out there, as the K-Pop boy group Wanna One will disband at the end of this year (December 31).

For those who don’t know, Wanna One is created through Mnet’s survival show franchise Produce 101: Season 2, and shares the same fate as former girl group I.O.I, who is also a product of the first season of the same show.

Their contracts are coming to an end and there are no plans to lengthen. However, it was also stated that the group is set to still attend all of their pre-arranged schedules, including award shows for early 2019, and their one last final concert as a group in Seoul at 24-27 January 2019.
