Wanna One are the hottest new boy band, but like any rookie act, they're still newcomers with idols of their own that they admire.
At their debut showcase on Monday, the boys revealed that they look up to two of K-pop's biggest bands, EXO and BTS, when a reporter compared their skyrocketing album sales to the two chart-topping K-pop groups.
"It’s an honor, because I watched and learned from EXO and BTS’s performances like they were textbooks," revealed member Ong Seong Woo, via Soompi.
Kang Daniel added, "I’ve watched EXO and BTS’s concert videos and thought, ‘I have to perform there [Gocheok Sky Dome] one day.'"
Do you think Wanna One are the next 'big thing'?
