@X1official101 fans, (One-Its) are silent protesting in front of CJ ENM’s headquarters in Seoul, demanding the responsibility and rebranding of the group.
X1 is a South Korean boy group formed through MNET’s survival program, “Produce X 101” which had revealed that the show manipulated the votes of the contestant’s ranking. Due to this incident, X1 members announced their group disbandment last January 6, 2020.
CJ ENM released an official statement saying, “We think it is very unfortunate that the recent situation led to X1’s disbandment following discussions between the members’ agencies, and we feel great responsibility. CJ ENM will continue to actively support the activities of the X1 members.”
Apart of the protests in South Korea, global fans have united and trended the hashtags #BringBackNewX1 and #CJTakeTheResponsibility on Twitter.
