Eleven contestants ultimately won the talent competition to become members of Wanna One.

As an interim group composed of members from various entertainment labels, Wanna One, like its predecessor IOI, was meant to conclude its promotions after a year.
The group’s contract expired on Dec. 31, with members returning to their home companies.
