As 6 members, the group is rumoured to released a studio album in June 2019.

A video of a Wanna One manager violently shoving a fan at the airport has been going viral and angering netizens.

The video in question shows the fan nearly flying across the floor after a Wanna One manager shoves the fan away with more force than necessary.

Other videos have also shown Wanna One managers using more force than necessary on fans.

Wanna One’s agency, Swing Entertainment, has since released an apology through Wanna One’s official Twitter account for the managers’ behavior.

This is Swing Entertainment.

In relation to the controversial video that has been brought up recently, we apologize for causing worry.

The video was filmed on the 28th at the airport on the way to Thailand and the man in question is indeed a manager of our company.

The manager has seen the video and is deeply reflecting upon his excessive behavior. Disciplinary action will be taken as well.

We are deeply sorry to the fan in the video for the incident, which should not have occurred in any instance, and bow our heads in apology to all fans for causing trouble.

We will do our best to prevent such incidents from occurring in the future through more thorough training.

Once again, we apologize to our fans who support Wanna One and will become a more diligent Swing Entertainment.


Despite the apology, netizens continue to express their anger towards the carelessness of the agency’s managers.

Wanna One‘s Kang Daniel recently welcomed a new lady into his life, and Wannables are already falling in love with her.

Ori, a sweet little kitty, joined Kang Daniel’s cat family sometime between International Cat Day (August 8) and Hwang Minhyun‘s birthday (August 9).

This news may not surprise fans who already know how big of a cat lover Kang Daniel is.

Ori is now the third “girl” with a claim on Kang Daniel’s heart, after her big sisters Rooney and Peter.

Kang Daniel seems to have decided to play it safe this time by going with a gender-neutral name. “Ori” comes from the Korean word 오리 (ori), which means “duck”. A cat named “duck”? How adorable is that?
