Wanna One to make comeback late mid-November with a full-length album

On October 3rd it was revealed by insiders that Wanna One will be making their comeback soon as the group has finished choosing their track list and title song for their next album. It is expected Wanna One will be showcasing their new charms through this title track.

According to an industry source, the group is set to return with a new album on November 19. In response, Wanna One’s agency Swing Entertainment clarified, “The exact date has not been finalized as November 19, but the comeback is planned for around then, sometime that week.”

The group began preparing for this comeback following the conclusion of their world tour in late August-early September. Their new title track as well as the rest of the track list has reportedly been selected. All that is said to be left is their new concept actually taking shape and Wanna One filming their music video. This will likely be Wanna One’s last album together, as they only have a few months left in their contracts.

Wow. It's been quite a ride with Wanna One. I hope that their next title will be a bop.

Give it a rest.

They made good music but good gods did they almost kill their idols while doing it.

I kind of just forgot about them

Same. I know they’ve been basically working non stop but yet they’re also weirdly super easy to completely ignore especially since they aren’t actively on variety shows at the moment. 🤷‍♀️

Get Hui to write you another hit or keep it. I’ve only liked 3 songs out of everything they’ve released. :/

Now that we’re close to the end of their contract anyone change their minds about who will be successful going forward and who won’t?

The only guarantees I see now are Daniel (cf and variety only tho), Ong (variety and maybe solo, a group debut would bury him at this point) and Minhyun (Nuests revival will probably be the biggest success from this season tbh). Everyone else...gl.

Daniel could never promote as a solo act on stage. He needs a group. Variety is currently his only option. Jisung will have to serve in the military very soon and the MMO trainees from Produce 101's second season have already moved on. Depending on Brand New Music's strategy, their new boy group (MXM+Daehwi+more trainees) might be a successful venture.

MTE on everything you just said.
I wish everyone the best though, Wanna One was a surprisingly iconic group.

Aside from Daniel (who will get by with the support of his fans), I believe Jaehwan will most likely be successful after Wanna One. And also Guanlin.

And yes, please have Hui make another song for them. I've been asking for it after their 2nd album.

cube couldn't even go 6 months without fucking it all up for themselves :S I have no hope for a new boy group tbh

Daniel Is gonna be alright whatever he does, I actually think he has the stage presence to pull a solo off he's just not a good enough singer/rapper. Ong I don't think would benefit from a group either but he will probably get some acting gigs and hopefully have some solo releases here and there. I think Jaehwan can have a good solo career as well, he's good at varieties and Koreans love their ballads so I don't see why not. My bet is on these 3 being the most successful ones after Wanna One (+Minhyun).

I think the Brand New group could do well. So far they've been doing a good job by keeping Youngmin and Donghyun busy and promoting, they just need a main vocal and Daehwi and Woojin will be fine.

Hotshot will probably remain in nugudom tbh and Cube's boy group could go either way with the shitty way they have to manage things.

The rest... I don't see much going on for them. Some of them need to get into acting asap if they want to have a career imo (Jihoon).

That was why too long and I apologise, I'm clearly waaaay to invested lol.

No no don’t apologize! Its nice reading what you think since you follow them more closely!!

I forgot about hotshot...apparently they’re supposed to have a comeback in November but idk if it’ll happen
helcaxe 4th-Oct-2018 05:07 pm (UTC)
Nah tbh I'm not inside of the fandom so I'm sure there's people who has a better idea. Like I know there are all sorts of rumors about subunits and Omg signing a contract as an actor and I just have no idea where they come from. If anything I love speculating cause I'm terribly curious about how their companies are gonna handle their careers.

I had no idea about Hotshot, I guess it makes sense to have a comeback once the guy from UNB comes back? You never know, cause weirdly enough I think Sungwoon has gained a lot of popularity after the program and Taehyun did good with JBJ but I just can't see Hotshot having any impact.

Nu'Est revival is probs one of the best products from the show tbh. I'm pretty excited for them.

ia with Daniel. He's in the same boat as Somi imo where they both need groups but if they can pull off solos, then best of luck to them. Guanlin could be successful if Cube doesn't fuck up the boy group they're putting him in.

Stone Music is squeezing them dry, aren't they? I was really looking forward to their debut and subsequent releases, but I kind of lost interest in them.

Funny I how I just got into them a few weeks ago.
And their about to disband...
kalsipher 4th-Oct-2018 12:45 am (UTC)
Finally! I hope the next comeback won't be beautiful 2.0 but ehh.

For now I'll just be praying it'll be a bop.
helcaxe 4th-Oct-2018 10:05 am (UTC)
I'm sure I'll keep seeing their pretty faces around but I'm gonna miss them as a group, they had great chemistry. On the other hand, they released like 4 decent songs in this year and a half so not a big loss for the music industry. Please let them have one last bop.
