Wanna One’s contracts are currently scheduled to end on December 31.
Earlier in the year, it was revealed that it was brought up for the group to extend until January 2019 for their final concert.
On July 26, an industry representative reported that CJ ENM, Swing Entertainment, and the agencies of the Wanna One members met on July 23 to discuss the potential extension until January.
According to the reports, their opinions were divided into three, with one being the group extending a month, another being that only the members who can extend continue to January, and a third being that if all the members cannot extend, then they should just conclude on December 31.
The one-month extension would be for their final concert and so that the group can attend award shows in January before disbanding.
Some of the members’ agencies reportedly feel burdened by the possibility as their plans would have to be adjusted.
In response to the news, a source from Swing Entertainment commented, “It is true that we recently met with the staff of each agency and CJ ENM and discussed an extension for Wanna One’s promotions. Although we did discuss various options, the members are currently on tour, so nothing has been decided yet.”
