'Beautiful Part 3': Wanna One's MAMA reunion song to release, fans dub it 'big gift'
'Beautiful (Part 2)' was one of the last songs Wanna One performed before disbanding in 2019
Wanna One is set to treat fans once again with the official release ‘Beautiful (Part 3)' on January 27, 2022. They were one of the biggest boy groups formed through a survival show as the members are all winners of ‘Produce 101’ Season 2. They had an impactful debut, made history in their first year itself, and continued to have a very iconic but short journey in K-pop. The project group disbanded in 2019 after their contracts expired.
However, fans were over the moon when the rumors of a reunion finally came to fruition. For MAMA 2021, the organizers, Mnet shared that they were in talks of a reunion and special projects with Wanna One. They wanted a special performance stage for the boys, fan meetings, concerts and even a special album. Unfortunately, the members are all busy with their other groups, solo careers and activities which is why most of it fell through. But fans’ spirits were not dampened as 10 out of the 11 Wanna One members reunited at MAMA 2021.

Wanna One to release MAMA reunion song
Turns out, a lot of people missed Wanna One. Their reunion performance at the K-pop award show was the most-watched stage of MAMA 2021. The most number of people tuned in during their stage and had the highest one-minute audience rating of the night. They performed their viral hits like ‘Energetic’ and ‘Burn It Up’. However, it was the stage of their new song ‘Beautiful (Part 3)’ which had a nationwide rating of 1.1% and 2.9% viewership among female teens. The organizer's parent company, CJ ENM had reportedly spent hundreds of millions won (hundred million won is ~$83k) on the reunion.
And with the investment paying off, it looks like everyone involved wants to thank fans for their continued support. Wanna One began their ‘Beautiful’ series in 2017 by releasing Part 1. Part 2 was released in 2018 and also happened to be one of the last songs that the boy group performed before disbanding. Well, it looks like they want to complete their reunion on a special note. January 27, 2019, was the last day of Wanna One as a group as they held the ‘Therefore’ concert. ‘Beautiful Part 3’ which was made by all 11 members will be released on January 27, 2022 as a gift to fans.
