Nevertheless, Wanna One is Wanna One.  
 
Just like the title 'monstrous rookie', attention towards Wanna One is heating up again after a slow down of popularity caused by numerous controversies. The group was caught up in Yuk Jidam’s one-sided disclosure targeting Kang Daniel and also in a controversy regarding an unexpected broadcast of unrefined conversation. Yet, it looks like that they have overcome the controversies and are back on the updraft.
