CJ ENM and labels are split over Wanna One's comeback

AKP STAFF

CJ ENM and entertainment labels are split over Wanna One's comeback.

On November 15th, CJ ENM announced Wanna One's reunion at the '2021 MAMA' which will be held on December 11 at 6 PM KST. While CJ ENM did not manage to reunite all 11 members of the project group, it did succeed in reuniting 10 members except Lai Kuan Lin for the special stage performance. 

Further, it was reported CJ ENM is currently in talks with all members to expand their reunion group activities to include holding a concert and releasing new albums. However, some labels are against the proposal. 


Pledis Entertainment firmly stated that Wanna One's special stage at the '2021 MAMA' will be the only group activity that Minhyun will participate in. The label added Minhyun is busy preparing for the NU'EST's concert which will be held in Seoul from November 26th to the 28th, as well as filming his drama series. 

It was also reported Ong Seong Wu was one of the members who had a hard time deciding to reunite as Wanna One due to his busy schedule filming a new Netflix movie.

Honestly for some of the members, making more albums is a great idea but for others, it might distract from their other activities like those already in groups. It would be cool if Wanna One became a fluid group where memebers participate in different comebacks when possible like NCT U.

And that's that for future activities. Its all fine and good when they were managed under one label, but once the companies got their assets back, its infinitely harder to come to a decision to get together. More dynamics come to play such as the status regarding their existing groups; does that mean that they can't promote while Wanna One has their concert or what about an album? How about if the member is solo and has solo gigs already laid out does THAT take a back seat? Lastly and quite possibly the only reason I think this venture will fail is MONEY. Who controls it now? Whats the division like? Forget the other stuff, these corporations want to see cash and how its being split.
