The plans to release a new song from Wanna One may be rescheduled, according to local media reports earlier this week.
CJ ENM said that talks with all related management companies to put out Beautiful Part 3 on January 27 have been completed. However, there still are administrative procedures that need to be finalized, it acknowledged.
CJ ENM has been pushing for the band’s reunion and put all members, except for Lai Kuanlin who is in China, on the stage for 2021 Mnet Asia Music Awards at the end of last year. They presented the new song, which harks back to Beautiful, main track from its 2017 album 1-1=0 (Nothing without You), and Beautiful Part 2, a track from 2018 LP 1¹¹=1 (Power of Destiny).
Earlier this month, the firm announced that the new song will be officially come out as an album on Jan. 27, exactly three years after the band’s final concert, and will feature all 11 members as Lai Kuanlin finished recording his part from China.
The boy band debuted through an audition program in 2017 and disbanded about 1 1/2 years later. All members, though, are actively pursuing their careers either as an individual or as a group. – The Korea Herald/Asia News Network
