X1 Disbands Less Than A Year Since Debut
Karen Jane Ng
Last year's winning group of Produce X 101, X1, has officially disbanded.
A joint official statement of the members' agencies reads, "This is Play M Entertainment, Yuehua Entertainment, TOP Media, OUI Entertainment, MBK Entertainment, Woollim Entertainment, DSP Media, Starship Entertainment, and Brand New Music.
"The X1 members and each of the agencies negotiated under the condition of unanimous agreement, but we could not come to an agreement, so we have decided on their disbandment."
The rookie K-pop group has been the center of rigged voting controversy ever since they debuted in August 2019.
