Kang Min Hee and Song Hyeong Jun wrote letters to fans after X1's disbandment.
After the labels of the X1 members confirmed the 'Produce x 101' project group's disbandment on January 6, Starship Entertainment have shared handwritten letters from former members Kang Min Hee and Song Hyeong Jun.
Kang Min Hee wrote:
"Hello, this is Min Hee.
Firstly, I want to say thank you and sorry to everyone who loves and supports us.
I always felt apologetic while watching all of you just quietly wait for us, and now this sudden news has been relayed to you.
Fans came to my mind first, and I felt worried and apologetic. I felt regretful as I thought about everything I wasn't able to do for fans.
Thank you for giving me precious times until this point and for always giving me greater love and support than what I gave. Our members and all of our times spent together were happy, and I will never forget them.
I also express gratitude to the Swing Entertainment staff who helped us a lot. You have worked hard through this point.
Please continue to support and watch over the 11 of us.
I will also work harder and not give up to be able to stand in front of fans again. Thank you.
To ONE IT who I love - From Min Hee."

"Hello... ONE IT... This is Hyeong Jun.
Firstly, I am so sorry to ONE IT who supported and loved us.
I always wanted to give back to ONE IT's love, but looking back now, I feel really regretful wishing that I had expressed that more to our ONE IT.
Thank you so much for making me feel like I am love and I'm doing well.
I think I was able to shine thanks to ONE IT.
Though we're now going on our separate paths from X1, please continue to watch over our members and support them.
Thank you also to our Swing Entertainment family that took care of us and looked after us until this point.
Our short promotion period really felt like a dream, and I was so glad and happy to meet our ONE IT and people, memories, and love that I will never be able to forget.
All days spent together with ONE IT were very precious, and I have been thankful.
ONE IT... thank you and sorry once again.
I will improve more and greet you again.
I love you so much, ONE IT."
