Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, I give you X1!


The newly minted 11-member boy group is now signed under Swing Entertainment (which also housed their seniors, Wanna One). X1 has a five-year contract with the label: an exclusive contract for the first two and a half years, and a non-exclusive one for the next two and a half years (meaning the members are allowed to simultaneously promote with their original labels).

With the amount of buzz “Produce X 101” generated throughout its season and given how well the prior “Produce” project groups did-slash-are-doing, there is no doubt X1 will make a similarly big splash when they officially debut on August 27, with a debut showcase at Gocheok Sky Dome.

If you’re someone who hasn’t been keeping up with “Produce X 101” (hereafter “PDX101”), or if you’re just curious about this X1 group that has been popping up on K-entertainment sites everywhere, then this article is just what you need! Here’s a little entry-level introduction to the 11 members of X1, in order of their age:
