Today, November 10, X1 had their first performance in slightly over a month – they last attended The Seoul Music Festival on October 6.
On that same day, concerned One It started a hashtag event urging Swing Entertainment to give the boys their well-deserved rest, and even some medical attention. This was all caused by the members looking absolutely exhausted at the festival. Although nothing officially came of it, the boys did seem to take it at least somewhat easy during the past month.
To say that X1 didn’t have an easy start of their career as Mnet’s group would be an understatement. On top of all the controversies with vote rigging that have loomed over them even before they debuted, it has recently come to light that they are still promoting without a valid contract.

However, their loyal fans haven’t let any of that stop them from supporting the boys. Recently they started another hashtag event – #StandUpForX1, to express their unwavering support for the group.
During their todays’ performance, the crowd also cheered them on loudly while they performed some of the fans’ favorites “Flash”, “U Got It” and “I’m Here For You”.
The boys definitely looked more energized than a month ago, and they even surprised their adorable but fierce maknae Nam Dohyon by singing him the “Happy Birthday” song.
We sincerely hope that all the groups from the Produce series will soon know where they stand and that we will be able to put all of this mess behind us.
