“Of course, I am in a group chat with band members. We talk every day and see each other very often,” he said on V Live on Thursday.

The 11 bandmates, who were finalists of a TV K-pop competition show, parted ways after final concerts as Wanna One in Seoul at the end of last month.

Yoon, livestreaming for the first time on his personal V Live channel since the disbandment, gave fans updates on what he has been up to.

He revealed that he has recently been to the Wanna One farewell exhibition in Seoul, is practicing hard for the Korean musical production of “The Days,” set to open its Seoul run on Feb. 22, and is preparing for a solo debut.

“The tracks are good to listen to on rainy days,” the singer said, when asked about the album “Aside,” slated for Feb. 20 release.
