Wanna One's Ha Sung-woon to start solo career next month

Ha Sung-woon, a member of the disbanded boy band Wanna One, will return to the K-pop scene with his solo debut album next month, his management agency said Monday.

"Ha Sung-woon, who is scheduled to come back to his (original) management agency after completing his career with Wanna One, will unveil his mini album in late February to start his solo career," Star Crew ENT said.

"Ha has been pouring his heart and soul into the creation of the new album, working as a producer and personally selecting songs," the management agency said. "The EP will be something that amplifies the musicality of Ha who has worked as one of Wanna One's vocals."

Wanna One disbanded at the end of 2018, ending its journey of 1 1/2 years as a K-pop band formed through Mnet's popular idol competition reality show "Produce 101."

At least three of Wanna One's 11 members will additionally debut as solo artists down the road, including Kang Daniel and team leader Yoon Ji-sung, who is set to release his solo album before the coming spring.

The group's final set of concerts from Jan. 24-27 will briefly bring the group together before the members finally part ways.

it's interesting to see how different the after wanna one promotions are compared to after ioi with all these solos. i wonder if sungwoon is going to return to hotshot at all tbh.

also - i know that iz one has literally just started but i'm interested how it'll go for them in 2.5 years - on one hand they're popularity is probably going to soar higher then ioi and wanna one given they have a longer promotion period - on the other hand if the home companies of the girls (minus the japanese members) use these 2.5 years to start predebut promotions (ala what bnm was doing with mxm), in 3 years we could possibly be seeing the biggest battle for new female rookie group. at the same time hopefully i'm not as big a fan of kpop to be around to witness it lol
