There were a lot of things discussed on Wanna One’s press conference as they start their comeback promotions.

The most asked about topic was the fact that they were nearing their inevitable disbandment, with rumors of possible contract extensions. However, the members revealed that they haven’t discussed anything yet.

“We thought it was too early to discuss the end because we were preparing for a full album. We decided to focus on our activities first and talk about it afterwards.” 

— Lee Daehwi

Kang Daniel, on the other hand, is having mixed emotions on having to end activities as a group. 

“I am upset and it is hard to say. Sometimes it seems to be good or sad. It’s a little complicated…” 

— Kang Daniel

Wanna One’s contract is set to expire by the end of this year but was revealed to have been extended until January 2019. After their comeback, the group is likely to conclude their activities through a 3-day concert on January 27-29, 2019.
