On January 9, Dispatch reported that it had obtained information about the voting process that led to X1’s disbandment earlier this week.

So, not only did the agencies refuse to release a goodbye song, but they didn't even allow the members to record a farewell video. Nobody is surprised that they wouldn't give a single shit about the boys' wishes, but they could have at least given them some closure instead of that abrupt ending.

All their hardword and achievements down the drain in the matter of 10 minutes. These companies remain shameless to the bitter end.
