X1 has taken another music show trophy for their debut track!
On September 6, the regular broadcast of “Music Bank” was postponed due to a special weather report on Typhoon Lingling, however filming for an episode was still carried out.
While X1 did not take part in filming for the show, news outlet TV Report states that according to several sources, X1 took No. 1 with “Flash.” The other nominee for first place was reportedly Red Velvet’s “Umpah Umpah.”
X1 is currently still in discussion about appearing on major network music shows, and they have not yet been able to perform on these shows (“Music Bank,” “Music Core,” or “Inkigayo“).
Today’s win on “Music Bank” brings their total wins for “Flash” so far up to four. (op's note: with today's win on Inkigayo they're up to 5th win)
The episode of “Music Bank” that was filmed today is expected to air during the Chuseok holiday next week on September 13.

The irony of being banned from the main music shows but still winning. lol
It's unclear if this week's Music Core episode is postponed or cancelled, but if they won on Inkigayo, they most likely would have won on Music Core too tbh.
