Wanna One to go on a World Tour “One: The World”

On April 2, boy group Wanna One announced the locations of their world tour “One: The World” via Facebook and Instagram.

Wanna One announced that they will have a world tour concert with the title: “Wanna One World Tour <One: The world>”

In the poster they released, the locations of the tour were written on the bottom. The locations included San Hose, Dallas, Hong Kong, Melbourne, Taipei and others. However, the poster reveals only the locations and nothing about the theme or the dates of the tour. Thus, much anticipation is rising regarding Wanna One’s first world tour concerts.

During the tour, Wanna one will be visiting 13 cities in total, starting in Seoul. They are the first group in history to have a world tour as a group’s first solo concert.

Meanwhile, Wanna One recently made a comeback with their second mini album ‘0+1 = 1 (I PROMISE YOU).’ The group also created a controversy when a private conversation between select members was accidentally broadcasted, but this did not stop them from winning 3 wins from music shows.

BIGBANG Seungri Gives Rather Ironic Advice to Wanna One at Radio Star

On March 21 broadcast of MBC’s ‘Radio Star,’ BIGBANG member Seungri gave a rather ironic advice to Wanna One.

On March 21, Radio Star hosted a show for the ‘Strong Baby of tonight, it’s me’ theme. BIGBANG Seungri, Wanna One Kang Daniel, Ong Seong-wu, and Park Woo-jin appeared as guests.

Seungri shared the stages an idol will go through in their career and said, “immediately after debut, everything is fun. Even when your manager gets mad, it’s exciting seeing other celebrities or being in an MBC show. However, it won’t last 3 years.”

He added, “BIGBANG had a great fandom, but we did not have any hit songs for at least a year. And then ‘Lies’ happened. One way to experience our popularity was through college festivals. We were heading back to Seoul after performing at 4 festivals, when the manager realized we had left out one more. We hurried back to find out the students waited for us for 2 hours. I wouldn’t have waited if I were them.”

As he continued, “when you are in your 3rd year, you want to do solo promotions. I did and I succeeded. My outfit was a suit with flowers connected to it and I would wear it to department stores right after stage. I wanted to check how popular I was. As I kept hearing my name, I walked in circles over and over again. I was such a brat.”

However, as you lose yourself in fame, you start to look down on people. This will cause people to leave your side and that’s when “reality hits you.” He continued, “starting your 7th year, rumors and scandals happen. They happen while you’re asleep or driving. Things just keep getting in your way without you realizing what they are. That’s when you start to doubt whether you can continue your career or not. And then you star thinking about opening your own business. I’m in my 13th year and I hope this goes on forever. I am thankful to be in the same show as Wanna One members.”

One of the advices from Seungri was, “don’t talk about your payment and income to anyone.” He added, “if other people find out your exact income, they will give you irresponsible advice on how to handle your money.” At the end, he prayed for Wanna One by saying “please help Wanna One to stay out of controversy and bad happenings.”

This is ironic because the day before the broadcast, Wanna One was involved in the ‘Star Live’ broadcast incident. In the controversial conversation shared between Wanna One members, the members were heard complaining about their delayed payment. In addition, netizens claimed that other topics of the conversation were rather inappropriate to be sharing in front of the staff members.

Meanwhile, Wanna One made a comeback with their 2nd mini album ‘0+1=1 (I PROMISE YOU)’ and took over 1st place in the chart with their title song ‘Boomerang.’
