Just shortly after the announcement of the disbandment of X1, it has been reported that some of the members who want to promote together may form a temporary project group.
According to an exclusive report from Newsen, members of X1 who want to work together still have gathered, and are positively forming a temporary unit. They are basing their idea off of JBJ, who was a project unit formed by eliminated trainees from Produce 101 Season 2.
Fans are also taken aback at the sudden decision for X1 to disband. Several agencies and the members who feel the same way are positively considering how to continue some promotions.
Fans have been active in raising their voices, disapproving of X1’s sudden disbandment. Many fans urged the members to form a new group with the members who wanted to be active together. They also have been promising their full support to all of the members continuing the team activities.
X1 made their debut in August 2019 and sold more than 500,000 copies of their debut album. However, due to the vote rigging scandal, their promotions got put on halt, and ultimately, the agencies of the X1 members could not come to an agreement, so the group disbanded.
