It seems that the Wannables are seeing a new light of achieving their dream of seeing their favorite Wanna One members gather in a stage performance before the year ends!
Multiple music officials stated that CJ ENM proposed a reunion performance for Wanna One. The matter happened while planning its music festival, the 2020 Mnet Asian Music Awards. CJ ENM is the label that previously managed the popular disbanded K-pop boy group.
The organizers of MAMA suggested the idea. They are aware of the fans’ continued support considering the mesmerizing support they saw from the previous joint stage of the five former Wanna One members, namely Jaehwan, Sungwoon, Jihoon, Daehwi, and Woojin. This is during season 2 of the KCON: TACT that was held online last month.

CJ ENM also expressed on November 5 that they are in discussions for Wanna One’s reunion performance. However, at this moment, nothing has been decided yet.
The awakened interest of fans
The interest in the K-Pop boy group has significantly increased after the KCON performance. The self-analysis digits exceeded 9,000, and it rose sharply from the average 2,500 level. This somehow confirms the consistent love and support of the fans for Wanna One.
Furthermore, the search term analysis site Black Kiwi has assumed that the “Wanna One“ search volume this month will increase by 20.24% compared to last month.
Also, increasing striking is the number of performances that bring Wanna One members together at events.
A Wanna One recap
CJ E&M created the project group through the reality show Produce 101, on its second season. It took place from April 7 to June 16, 2017. The group consists of 11 members, namely, Kang Daniel, Lee Daehwi, Park Jihoon, and Ong Seongwu.
