Korean idol group Wanna One formally greeted the media for the first time on August 7. The 11 members were chosen after rounds of intense competition on reality-survival programme Produce 101 Season 2, after which the members with the most number of votes made it to the final lineup.

Made up of Kang Daniel, Park Ji Hoon, Lee Dae Hwi, Kim Jae Hwan, Ong Seong Woo, Park Woo Jin, Lai Guan Lin, Yoon Ji Sung, Hwang Min Hyun, Bae Jin Young and Ha Sung Woon, the group has become immensely popular even before their debut, earning themselves the title of ‘monster rookies’.

Their debut music video, ‘Energetic’, broke the 4 million view mark within 24 hours, setting the record for the most views for a K-Pop group’s debut music video within a day. They also achieved the top spot on numerous music charts in Korea, achieving what is termed an “all-kill”. Their debut showcase was held at the Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul, with tickets to the 20,000-capacity event selling out soon after ticket sales launched.

Wanna One is expected to kick start promotions on music shows in the coming days and will begin overseas activities soon. The group is slated to perform at KCON 2017 in Sydney, Australia, together with other groups like EXO, SF9 and Girls’ Day next month. They are also scheduled to visit Hong Kong on Oct 3 and Taipei on Oct 7 for a fan meeting as part of their first tour, according to an announcement on Bing Young Entertainment’s Facebook page.
