    Popular K-pop boyband Wanna One looked a tad familiar as they attended a press conference for the media and a select group of fans on Friday (22 September), ahead of their first fan meeting in Singapore.

Fresh off their win for the New Korean Wave Rookie Award on Thursday (21 September), the temporary boyband from survival reality show “Produce 101 Season” is in Singapore for their first (and possibly last) fan meeting.
