The K-pop boy group Zerobaseone is managed by the company WAKEONE, but most of the individual members of the group actually belong to other entertainment companies. This is because Zerobaseone was formed through an Mnet survival competition show, Boys Planet, which featured 98 contestants from around the world, and the group will promote together for 2.5 years in total before dispersing back to their individual companies to continue promotions independently. So among the many companies out there, here we will break down what company each of the Zerobaseone (ZB1) members comes from — let’s find a home for Kim Jiwoong, Zhang Hao, Sung Hanbin, Seok Matthew, Kim Taerae, Ricky, Kim Gyuvin, Park Gunwook, and Han Yujin.
