We are interested in your stories. Your journey as a One It is worth telling.
We would love to hear from you, our ONE ITs.
I met you during my hardest time in life. During my dreadful crash, i found a story in you that lifts me up. Same old narrative but put in fresh faces of young beautiful kids. In a little silly wishful thinking, i hoped to have a free ride on the rise of your success. Maybe.
You deserved a huge success, fabulous shows and interviews, wonderful track record, self- development and self-fulfilling experiences, especially in International stages. I was more than ready to witness your rise. Because...... somewhere in this world, somebody has to enjoy a happy life that they deserve. If not me, then at least somebody else will do, if they worked for it. That’d be fair, that would comfort me.
That was why I couldn’t idly sit and wait until someone else fights for you. When you were helplessly faced with stupid hates from the stupid world, again, like me... i thought what is going on, why is it like this, what the hell do you want from these young kids.
I was and still am too helpless to fight for my own happiness but maybe ... maybe it must be very comforting to think someone in the world will stand up for me.
I thought I’d do that for you.
You are still silent.. Smiling like nothing bad happened. Like it is just a past that is gone and erased. Like it wasn’t a big deal. The world is cold and we are not born yesterday. Yeah?
Maybe we need to just walk forward and forget the past. Unload the heavy hearts and just take light footsteps. Maybe that is what i need to do as a person and as a fan. Holding onto the pain doesn’t really help the future, maybe.
But i have lived long enough to know things don’t work that way.
It haunts us in the middle of night. It flashes up, puts us into depression what if same things happen in circulation, what if my success isn’t welcomed again, what if I don’t deserve happiness from the beginning..... those scary crazy ideas.
X1, beautiful and talented, sensitive boys.
I still hope it won’t take too long for someone to tell you that your hardship got paid off, it was all worth, you proved to the world that you are much bigger than the stupid hates from the stupid world.
Outgrow those small minded talks,
Outshine those gold buttoned up snobs and teach them how to win over problems.
Everyone of you 11 boys.
I cannot just pass by with eyes closed.
Please make a beautiful ending to this story for me.
My story with X1 starts way back on May 3, 2019, when the first episode of Produce X 101 was aired, also known as our journey's beginning. I honestly wasn't ready for any of the heartbreaks that I was about to experience. Even though I've went through the same journey once already before this, It still gave the same rollercoaster-like feelings. I lost some of my favourite trainees in the way, but until the last, I was proud to see them grow since the first episode, until the last episode.
Then, finally we were introduced to 'X1'. I can't explain how happy I was to know that most of my picks got in to the lineup, it was really an amazing feeling. I was so glad and proud for all of them, I think I couldn't stop screaming inside even after the last livestream. I was imagining so many things already, "I wonder how the next 5 years will be like?" and I was especially excited to see them on many variety shows together.
X1 was the first group I actually paid a lot of attention to. I always waited for the concept photos and always refreshed my Instagram page to see if they already uploaded them. I was so excited for their debut. The music video for FLASH was released when I was at school. It was the first video I watched when I came back home. I started watching it, before I knew it, I was already crying. I couldn't believe that this moment had already happened, it felt like Produce X 101 was aired just yesterday. After that, I watched the Pretty Girl stage. I honestly couldn't stop crying while watching it, even though it was a really bright and cute concept.
When X1 went on a hiatus because of the controversies surrounding the Produce season, I couldn't stop worrying about them every single day.
Then finally, January 6 came. Believe me when I say I went into an ABSOLUTE emotional breakdown, I cried for at least 6 hours straight. I was there with them since the start of their journey, and to see their dreams being crushed just like that made me extremely sad. I remember their words and how they wanted to do a world tour, and how they wanted to get Rookie of the Year awards during their rookie period. I couldn't stop feeling sorry, because we weren't able to give that to them before they disbanded. I remember crying every single day and thinking about how they felt, how they're coping with this, and how did they feel when the news was brought to them.
I would be lying if I said I still don't feel sad, even though it's been 5 months already. I still think about them daily, even though they're all having separate promotions already. I still feel broken, yes, but I'm just glad to see all of them happy, that's all I need.
Being a One It taught me how to appreciate little things around me, little gestures, and little actions. It especially taught me to cherish everything you have right now, because in a blink of an eye, it could be gone right in front of your eyes. Though, becoming a One It made me stronger.
Even if it was just a short period of time, those 5 months were the happiest months I've ever had. To have them was already a huge blessing to me, and seeing them smile made my day way better, seeing them happy together was the biggest gift I could ever have.
Even if their wings were cut off, even if we spent a short amount of time together, I'm happy that I was able to be there for them when they were still together.
One Its! I hope you're all doing okay, remember to eat your meals everyday, never skip a meal, and always take care of yourself. I love you all so much.
X1, thank you for being there for us.
I hope we made you proud, even if it was just a short amount of time.
Forever, we'll fly high together, and go beyond the skies. I'll continue to shower all of you with all my love and support, since our beginning, and until our last.
Since the first fly high, and until the last fly high.
"Fly high, X1! 안녕하세요 엑스원입니다!"
After this whole thing, I started to listen to Victon, and Seungyoun's music. I supported H&D, Wooseok's and Cravity's debuts. But deep down I still want to see X1 together. With the fame of Wanna One and IZ*ONE and how good of a song Flash was, there was no reason why X1 would not be the next big thing.
I have suggested that X1 go under a new company, maybe Kang Daniel's because he understands what is was like, or Zico's because he is Seungyoun's friend and made a song for PX101, but has been ignored. Maybe because I don't have a platform big enough or some are just ok with the fact that the X1 members are separated. If it works, and X1 has even 2 years of promotion, I'd be more than happy. That's why I was delighted to see this organization and I really hope they can help.
My story goes this way, it was summer last year when I discovered Wanna One. I went to gather some information about them, and I found out that they were already disbanded that time. Knowing it, frustrates me. Knowing that I was too late to stan such a group.
To make the long story short, I also discovered about Produce 101. That time, I was just curious about it. I watched the "Produce x 101 The Beginning ", it was more like an introduction to Produce 101 New Series which was Produce x 101. To be honest, I didn't really focus on Produce x 101 because after summer vacation ofcourse I needed to study hard and that time, I was not really interested in kpop. So I focused on my studies, but whenever I have extra time(in school) I always went to our Computer Laboratory and watch Pdx101 videos.
Then July 19 came, I was not aware that it was already the last episode that pdx101 would be air. That night, I didn't sleep early waiting for finale. The 11 trainees were announced, and I'm glad that my pick made it to the final line up. After then, I was became updated about them.
It was my first time to stan and support a group right from the start, and listen to all their songs literally. Their songs didn't made me bored or what, it's just amazing. I didn't know that it was really nice. They released their reality show, and I was very happy that time. I even downloaded it so I could watch over and over again.
Then their debut came, so as their disbandment(Jan 6). I was really shocked that day, thinking it was not true(hoping). I was on my way to school when I heard about the news. All day, I was not on the mood. I told my friend (also a kpop fan) that "X1 disbanded just now". While saying those words I was about to cry but I gathered myself not to and be strong. That friend of mine was the one I talked to a lot about x1, we even learned the choreography of "Flash" together. I also influenced my sister to stan x1, haha. When I got home, there were already letters posted by the members. It made me cry💔, it made me realized that the news was true. That this whole thing is real and I'm not just dreaming. And I'm not inside a world full of jokes, it was real. No one knows that I cried because of the news, no one knows that I've had a hard time processing my mind.
Now, some of the members already have their own groups. Promoting and having new songs. Now, I already have lots of fandom. And it was hard, really. Supporting them one by one, trying not to get tired. Them as one, is better. Less hassle, more support I could give. Reboot x1 please.
One its went through a lot of efforts pursuing the unit, and it made me think that it was not the end. Rather, this is the beginning. Hoping to get through this soon, that all our hardships would be payed off.
One its, fighting! x1 saranghae~💖✨
Fly High, x1!✨
I think its disband was unfair, they didn't have the fault of Mnet's decisions, they are victims! Everything is gonna improve, I'm pretty sure of it! X1 is going to come back :)) We are X1's wings, so they will fly higher! I don't have doubts of it.
Do you wanna give up? No we shouldn't! Even though we are already tired fighting for X1 we shouldn't give up they promise us 5 years not 5 months right? Lets fight one its! Its the biggest fight we will have for X1!
Today is supposed to be the day of our All Out War demonstration, but universe don't want it to happen YET. I know we have been in this fight, universe is the witness how we struggle, fight and surely we will win this in a perfect time. Our time. Maybe, universe want us to be ready for somethingㅡ better than what we are expecting. 💙 God knows, and surely have a better plan. We'll get through this. We'll get what our boys deserve. Fighting, One its! I love y'all bigtime! 💙 Everyone of us deserves a tap on their back, a proud smile and of course the words "I am proud of you."ㅡ"I am so proud of you, ONE ITS."
So, I decided to watch it. When I started on the 1st episode, everyone else was on Episode 9, so it didn't take me long to catch up. But when I watched the first episode, I was immediately drawn to all of the contestants. I had called them my 101 sons! I wanted all of them to debut, but I knew there could only be a chosen amount. As I progressed, I kept getting closer and closer to them.
Then, the day had come to see who would debut in X1. I was so scared, happy, excited, anxious, the whole 9. I remember how I was sitting on my couch with my phone pulled up to Twitter in one hand, and my ipad in the other, with PDX 101 on. One by one, I heard all of my top picks be in the line up. I was so emotional. Crying, because I was just SO proud of them. They were one step closer to achieving their dreams, and I would be here to see it.
We got all kinds of pictures, videos, and we were able to watch them win not just 1 award. Not 2, but 11. 11 awards for all 11 to hold. No words could describe the pride and happiness I felt when I kept hearing X1's name being called because they had won. Then, we got our fandom name. I honestly had clowned it a little bit, but it quickly grew on me. No longer was I an X1 stan, but I was a One-It!
However, our happiness didn't last long. Just a couple months after, it felt like the entire world was flipped upside down. Antis coming to say mean things, how they were r*gged, it just seemed like the world was against us being successful. But I was okay. As long as I had my boys, I always had the strength to shut antis down. But it got worse.
January 6th, I had woken up at 8 in the morning. I had opened my Twitter, and my entire timeline was confused, angry and upset. I didn't know what was going on. I guess ignorance is bliss isn't it? I asked around about what was happening, but I recieved no answers, so I found out for myself. When I saw the news, it felt like my heart had been ripped out, stomped on, and thrown back into my chest. I prayed that the news wasn't true. I prayed that this was a whole mistake. I prayed that I would still get my 5 years with my babies.
I didn't want to believe it. Nothing could have prepared me for the utter despair that I had felt when I saw that X1 had disbanded. So, as I found out that it was true, I could do nothing but cry. Nothing but sob. Nothing but scream. It felt like my life had been ripped from me and all was left was a broken shell.
But I didn't stay like that for long. Sadness turned to desperation. Desperation turned to anger. Anger turned to rage. Rage turned to Determination. How dare my boys suffer because of the greediness of adults?! Why was it my boys that had to go through this!? Why us?? I picked myself up, and promised that even if I had to do it alone, I would get my X1 back. Then, every One-It around the world had the same reactions. We were one. We felt what the other was feeling, even if we are millions of miles apart. All of us connected by 11 strings that could NEVER be cut. We fought, and we still fight for the justice of X1. For the reboot of X1. Together, I know that we can achieve our goal. Together, I know that NOTHING is impossible. We are one. They are one. Together, we are unstoppable.
So, continue fighting, my fellow One-Its. Times will come when some fall away. When some give up the fight. When some continue to fight relentlessly on the battlefield. If we can't fight for X1, who will? The world is against them and us, but let this be the fuel to drive us on. Let us turn their HATE to MOTIVATION. Let us FLY with X1. We were their air that held them up so that they could fly. Now? We are their wings. We will lift them up and help them SOAR! The journey is far from over, but we can do this! There is nothing that can keep family apart. I promised that I would be with X1 forever, and I know that many have done the same. I love you, One-Its.
I know we've been going through a lot for months now, BUT I'M REALLY PROUD HOW STRONG, HOW UNITED AND HOW OUR FANDOM PROVES OUR LOVE AND SUPPORT TO OUR BOYS. Our mantra is "yes we cry over and over again, but we will never give up to bring our boys back!" In our language (Tagalog), " IIYAK LANG PERO DI SUSUKO" 🙂 Fighting! and thank you one it fam for not giving up on X1, because we all know that they deserve not better but BEST.
To my X1 & One-It Fam,
We got this! We will always be their wings to fly higher! Saranghaeyo, I love you, Mahal ko kayo! 🙂
Stay safe and be healthy always!
Love & support from your OFW Unnie in Dubai. <3
I never involved myself in kpop world. until one day i watched pdx from my friend's suggestion. I became sooo into it and started to follow it weekly. I started to have my own pick, Lee Eunsang. Even i didnt know hangul back then, the only way for me to notice eunsang was by remembering the shape of his name. how desperate and mad i was. When the final lineup was called, tbh i didnt like minhee and hangyul. but now everytime i watch X1, i wonder how to not madly in love with each one of them. Minhee even is currently my bias wrecker, aside Eunsang is still my ult bias since i dont stan any other group. Well, it was a reallyyy a beautiful enchanting journey with X1, even from the start. I cant even write them all here. But all i can say, X1 is my first and will always be my last love.
Yohan, Hangyul, Junho, Dongpyo,
Minhee, Eunsang, Hyeongjun and Dohyon)
I'm a multifan since 2009 and my latest stan was IZ*ONE. Upon the release of reports that the last PD season will include Wooseok and Seungwoo, I started to get interested with the show. As a WIZ*ONE, I happened to watch the Ep. 0 where IZ*ONE reacts to the PDX trainees' videos, then I started to pic my biases. Throughout the show, I witnessed all your efforts, hardships, difficulties and achievements. I've been with you since then until now. Your historical debut showcon made me dream of your future fanmeets, concerts and tours around the world.
I love my new name, ONE IT. A name that shouts its meaning. As if I'm a One Important Being. As if I could get what I want. This made me do things I've never done before. But these donations, protests, petitions and twitter trends were not enough compared to your unbearable sufferings.
We've seen you as a butterfly being destroyed by a storm. And after that storm passes, there will be a rainbow. We, One Its, are hoping, praying and waiting for you to come back as a phoenix, who obtains new life by arising from the ashes of its predecessor, the butterfly.
사랑한다, 엑스원 💗 영원히.
I know it's hard for us to live a fangirling life like this. Every day we need to be strong because of battle that we are facing. But everytime you feel tired, remember the first time you stan them. They are always worth the fight. X1 is always worth the fight. I know time will come that we will win this one, that we can finally enjoy the moment with our boys but before that we need to be strong and loud.
Honestly before the only reason why I choose to fight for them is because I want more content of them, I want to have more fangirling years with them. But now I realized that that is not the only reason why I choose to fight. I dont want to end this family just like that. Yes a family. I am a kpop fan for 6 years and I never encountered any fandom as welcoming as One It. This fandom is not just a fandom of X1, this fandom is a family who help and support each other. Proud is an under estimate of what I am feeling right now. And I am not allowing anyone to ruin this family. So One It I know its hard, tiring and exhausted but we need to win this battle. We need to bring our X1 back. Fighting!!!
Hi, i've been watching you since the beginning of ProduceX101. My friend introduce me to the show. I actually had no intention to watch because, at the end, it's only for a few years. I hate saying goodbye(s). But, Seungwoo actually caught my eyes. I've seen him, and the others, that they really desperately want to be on the stage.
X1, maybe I dont know what you've been through. I dont know how you feel. I'm sorry. But now that i'm here, i just want to let you know that, me with one its, will always be by your side. Please dont burden yourself.
X1, you caught my heart. I wont ask any other lineup, just you. Only X1. I dont want it to change. Please, accept our sincere heart.
I havent meet you. I havent watch your comebacks. I havent watch your full reality and variety shows. I havent seen what you couldnt show. I'm here, and will always be here❤.
걱정마새요,, 행복해주새요,, Let's meet together, X1, One it, at the stage!
Thanks GOD i become One It...this fandom really really solid...One It~~~~ LOVE YOU TO MOON AND BACK !!!
I already promise to become Solid One It on 22 January at front 1000 protestan
Love you ONE IT
