Two Years After Their Disbandment, Here Are Where All 11 Of X1’s Members Are Now
It may be hard to believe it, but it has been just over two years ago, on January 6, 2020, when X1 sadly disbanded long before they were planned to. Fortunately since then, all 11 members have gone on to have successful careers on their own, with some of them pursuing solo careers while others have joined K-Pop groups! Here is where each former member of X1 is now, as of early 2022.
Seungwoo made his debut with VICTON in 2016 before he joined Produce X 101, which he competed on along with his fellow member Byungchan. He ended up placing third on the show, earning him a place in X1, but of course, the group didn’t last long.
Fortunately, he did have VICTON to fall back on after X1’s disbandment! Along with this, later in 2020, Seungwoo made his solo debut on August 10 with the album Fame, and also released another solo album called Fade in 2021. On July 28 last year, he enlisted in his military service, which he is currently in the process of completing.
Seungyoun, known better these days by his solo name WOODZ, was a member of UNIQ before he took part in Produce X 101. He has been in the K-Pop industry long before most other members of X1, having debuted with UNIQ in 2014, and continues to be a member of the group today.
He ended up placing fifth on Produce X 101, and after the group disbanded, he, too, ended up pursuing a solo career to great success! He released his first solo album, Equal, on June 29, 2020, and has gone on to release two other EPs — Woops! (2020) and Only Lovers Left (2021) — as well as the single album Set (2021).
Like the two idols above, Wooseok was also already a member of a K-Pop group before he joined X1. He debuted with UP10TION in 2015, and was then known by the stage name Wooshin. After his participation on Produce X 101, in which he ended up in second place, he started going by his birth name Kim Wooseok.
After X1’s disbandment, Wooseok went back to being an active member of UP10TION, and also began his own solo career as well! He released his first solo album, 1st Desire [Greed], on May 25, 2020, and has since released a second album, 2nd Desire [Tasty], on February 2, 2021.
Yohan was a trainee with OUI Entertainment before he joined Produce X 101, and so when X1 ended up falling through, he originally returned to his company still a trainee. Like other former members of X1, he began a solo career soon after the disbandment, and released his first single “No More” on August 25, 2020.
Later the same year, Yohan made his debut with WEi! They debuted on October 5 with the mini-album Identity : First Sight, and he serves as the center, lead rapper, and sub-vocalist of the group. He also just released his first solo mini-album, Illusion, on January 10 this year!
Hangyul first debuted as a member of the group IM in 2017, during which he participated on the rebooting project show The Unit. When he ended up not placing high enough to debut in UNB, he later went on to participate in Produce X 101, where he placed seventh and debuted with X1 in 2019. IM reportedly disbanded sometime this same year.
After the disbandment of X1, he and fellow former X1 member Dohyun formed the duo H&D, which debuted on April 21, 2020.

This group ended up being BAE173, which debuted on November 19, 2020 with the mini-album Intersection: Spark.
Junho was a trainee with Woollim Entertainment before he participated on Produce X 101. He ended up placing ninth on the show, earning him a spot in X1, but of course he had to change plans when the group disbanded.
On May 31, 2020, Junho participated in his agency’s artist collaboration single “Relay” as a member of Woollim Rookie. On September 4, it was announced that he would be joining an upcoming boy group formed by Woollim Entertainment, and he officially debuted with DRIPPIN on October 28 the same year with the mini-album Boyager!

Fortunately, it wasn’t too long before it was announced that he would be debuting in a nine-member boy group later that year. The announcement was made on February 13, and on April 14, Minhee officially debuted with CRAVITY with the mini-album Season 1. HIDEOUT: Remember Who We Are!
