Even though on December 30 the CEO of CJ ENM announced that both IZ*ONE and X1 will continue with their activities, it seems that the future of X1 is still very uncertain.
Today, January 6, CJ ENM and Swing Entertainment officials held a meeting during which they discussed what is going to happen with X1.
Reportedly, three or four members had expressed their reservations about rejoining the group after all the controversies that had transpired.
Given that nothing has been decided as of yet, more meetings are expected to be held in the future.
