Without warning, South Korean boyband Wanna One dropped a quick teaser of their world tour on social media this morning.
The tour of “ultimate scale”, titled One: The World, will land in 13 cities across the globe, including eight in Asia – Seoul, Singapore, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Manila, Hong Kong and Taipei.
The “Energetic” heartthrobs will also stop by San Jose, Dallas, Chicago, Atlanta and Melbourne.
While we have to wait for details from the band and IME Asia, one thing’s for certain for now: this will be Wanna One’s first full-fledged concert tour – and perhaps last, as they’re signed under YMC Entertainment and CJ E&M until the end of 2018 – and whether you joined or skipped the boys’ Asia fan meeting jaunt last year, this is something not to be missed.
Formed through the second season of reality show Produce 101, Wanna One are Kang Daniel, Park Jihoon, Lee Dae-hwi, Kim Jaehwan, Ong Seongwu, Park Woojin, Lai Kuanlin, Yoon Jisung, Hwang Minhyun, Bae Jinyoung, and Ha Sungwoon. The 11 members came top of the competition that featured 101 trainees from different talent agencies all over South Korea.
The group debuted on August 7, 2017 with “Energetic”, a lead single off their EP 1×1=1 (To Be One). Their second EP 0+1=1 (I Promise You) was released last month and topped South Korea’s six major music charts achieved a real-time “all-kill” status upon its release. Take a listen (again) to their latest single, “Boomerang”.
