Every story has an ending but in life, every ending is a new beginning. January 27th marked the last day of 11 multi-talented boys from Wanna One as a group.
One and a half year ago, these boys-turned-men have met through a survival shown on Mnet that gathered them together as a group. Coming from different agencies, they come together as a family under the name of Wanna One.
The group of eleven members were created through a survival show Produce 101, whereas all the members had to fight like a lion to the bitter end. The eleven winners of the show then gathered and debuted under one group, they are Yoon Jisung, Ha Sungwoon, Hwang Minhyun, Ong Seongwoo, Kim Jaehwan, Kang Daniel, Park Jihoon, Park Woojin, Bae Jinyoung, Lee Daehwi, and Lai Guanlin.

Reaching the end of their journey, Wanna One released their final album called 1¹¹=1 (Power of Destiny) with the title song, Spring Breeze and performed at their last concerts, called in Gocheok Dome, Seoul South Korea.
All endings are a chance to rest, to breathe, to reflect on the conclusion of a journey in preparation for a new one. Bringing 26 songs during their 4 days final concerts, the members also performing their solo stages, such as the center of the group, Kang Daniel whom singing a song called Rainisim for his solo stage. The eleven boys of the group presented the best of themselves on their last stage and it brought the fans into tears. The concerts that were contained of happiness, screams, and also tears were radiating all over the stadium, as they sang their last song, I Promise U, the members couldn’t hold themselves any longer and bawled their eyes out.
Happy endings come after a story with lots of ups and downs, even though the story of Wanna One has come to its end, the bond between the members and the fans has gone stronger than ever. Although they may not be promoting in the same group anymore, the fans sure are excited to see what the store has for them in the future right? Until next time Wanna One.
