Fans, heart broken by the news, promised a time limitless waiting until their debut. 

    However, it turned out, they didn’t have to be waiting so long! The entertainments of each trainees collaborated after they have seen how ready their trainees are and the waiting fans. Fave Entertainment was chosen to manage them while they perform.

    The six boys will be performing in the name of JBJ, meaning Just Be Joyful. In Korean, there is another translation, “Jungmla Baramjikhan JoHap” meaning “real desirable group”. JBJ members have been on V live and showed high hopes about their group and shared positive energy to each other.

    Though some matters about their debut hasn’t been finalized, the project is sure going in the most positive way possible. Stay put and wait patiently until their first stage!

    The Aesop’s Fable Cartoon of Wanna One Made by Fan

    A fan drew a cartoon based on Wanna One member’s characteristics. The characters are animals each representing a member and their real personality.

    Here is the first episode of the cartoon. The baby lion in the first cut is Park WooJin and the puppy eating rice cake in the second cut is Kim JaeHwan. The puffy puppy in the fourth cut is Kang Daniel and the puppy with thick eyebrows is Ong SeungWoo.

    Park WooJin is trying to tell Kim JaeHwan that he is a lion, but JaeHwan has no interest other than his food. He moves on to tell Kang Daniel, but just cracks up laughing and say “You’re just a little baby!”. His last try with Ong SeungWoo fails as well as he replies “If you are a lion, I”m god.”

    The puffy puppy is again Kang Daniel, next to him is Ong SeungWoo. The little puppy coming towards the two is Park WooJin.

    Park WooJin tells the two about his hardship in being on a diet and say “I stopped eating carbs!!” but they crack into laughter and say “But you eat a lot of rice cake!” Daniel continues on with his laughter while others stopped, then he bumps into the penguin, representing Park JiSung. The penguins takes no big deal of Daniel laughing since it happens all the time. Daniel laughing so hard notices that he is alone and gets scared all of the sudden. He shouts “Ghosts!!” and runs.

    Fans of Wanna One say that the cartoon really depicted their personality well. Do you agree?

    We can hardly tell the difference except the fingers being all stretched or making number 1. Introduction of a group is a unique sign and defines their identity, therefore, Wanna One’s way of introductions overlapping with that of NCT made fans furious.

    The second controversy is about the official color of the group. Official color is also another factor that represents a group’s identity. The color is mostly used by fans in making good and cheering tool for their idols in order for idols to recognize them. Having a same or similar color with another idol group is unacceptable to fans. 

    The color official color of Wanna One is exactly the SAME as that of SEVENTEEN. Fans say, it’s SEVENTEEN who has been using the color first, and asked Wanna One’s entertainment to change their color. However there is no official statement about this issue from the company yet.
