Several members of Wanna One claimed that people don't recognize them in public.
On November 15, Wanna One guested on KBS 2TV's 'Happy Together 4.' During the talk, Park Ji Hoon revealed, "I don't think I have a huge difference in appearance between wearing makeup and no makeup. People tend to stare at me more if I wear a mask and a hat. So I came to think that I will look more like a non-celebrity if I just go out without a mask and a hat, so I did that, and no one really recognized me."
Ong Seong Wu agreed and said, "They tend to recognize me if I dress coolly but they don't if I dress comfortably. He added, "I recently went to Hanuel Park to take photos. I was debating about going back because there were so many people but I just went in casual wear with no hat, and no one noticed. They thought I was a photographer. If young people came near me, I hid my face with the camera."
Lai Kuan Lin also said, "People don't stare at me when I go out comfortably." On the other hand, Bae Jin Young brought laughter as he said, "Everyone recognized me."
