Wanna One have officially disbanded as of December 31, 2018, with their only remaining promotions to be at award ceremonies and their final concerts in Seoul in January 2019.

Reports have already been flooding in as to what members will be doing next, with some set to release solo music and others booked for tv shows already.

Here's the lowdown on who's doing what post-Wanna One.


Sungwoon's agency Star Crew Entertainment have confirmed that the idol will be preparing a mini-album for a solo debut in late February. He will be participating as a producer on the album, and will likely be involved in writing songs too. There's no word on when and if he will rejoin his group HOTSHOT.


MMO Entertainment have confirmed that Jisung is preparing for his solo debut, though a specific date is not decided yet. He will also be participating in the musical Those Days in the first half of 2019, before military enlistment.

Kang Daniel

The idol who is in the same agency as Jisung, will be making his solo debut after the elder. He has also recently opened a solo Instagram account.


The talented singer-songwriter will be focusing on a solo debut with self-written songs, to be made when he feels he has enough good songs written.

Daehwi and Woojin

The pair are signed to Brand New Music and will be debuting in a new boy band with MXM members Youngmin and Donghyun. The debut is planned for April or May.


The Taiwanese member of Wanna One will be filming a variety show in China in January, followed by a Chinese drama in February. He's also set to join Cube Entertainment's new Korean boy group when they're formed.


The idol was an actor before joining Wanna One, and Maroo Entertainment have said that while the idol has received several drama role offers, nothing is decided yet. He will be promoting as both a singer and idol from now on.


The third youngest Wanna One member has received several offers to appear in dramas but it is likely he'll focus moreso on being a singer. Rather than going solo, his agency intends to place him in a new group.


The popular Wanna One member will return to his group NU'EST, who have been promoting under the name NU'EST W while he has been away. They are expected to make a comeback in the first half of 2019.

Seong Woo

Popular as a model and training to be an actor before Wanna One, Seong Woo is likely to appear in JTBC's upcoming drama Eighteen.

Best of luck to all Wanna One members in their future careers!
