- Not to be confused with TO.1.
Together as One! Hello, we are TO1!
TO1 (티오원; formerly known as TOO (티오오)) is a nine-member boy group under WAKEONE. Originally as 10, they were formed through the survival show World Klass and officially debuted on April 1, 2020 with their first mini album Reason for Being : Benevolence.
2019: World Klass
On June 25, 2019, Stone Music Entertainment and n.CH Entertainment announced that they would be launching a new boy group called TOO through a new global survival program to be aired on Mnet in September. Their name is an acronym for "Ten Oriented Orchestra".
On December 6, the top 10 winners were announced through the live finale. Two days later, n.CH announced that Han Jun, who made it to the final lineup after placing third, would not be joining the group due to partaking in an unauthorized leave and disreputable scandal when he was a trainee. He was replaced by Jae Yun, who had the next highest number of votes on the show.
2020: Debut with Reason for Being : Benevolence, Road to Kingdom, Running TOOgether
On March 5, Stone Music and n.CH announced that TOO's debut album promotions would be partially rescheduled. A new schedule was posted on March 9 revealing their debut had been delayed to April 1. Their debut mini album, Reason for Being : Benevolence, was released on April 1 with "Magnolia" as the title track.
On April 11, the group announced their fandom would be called TOOGETHER.
Road to Kingdom then officially began and was aired on April 30 with an online vote beforehand, from March 30 to April 5. During the 90 seconds performances, they danced to "Into the dysTOOpia", which was a remixed version of "Magnolia" to introduce themself and ranked seventh. During the first round, which was to perform a "king's melody", they had covered "Rising Sun" by TVXQ and ranked fourth during the first round. During the second round, which was to perform your own song, they performed "Magnolia". They had ranked sixth during the second round, which was determined 30% by the contestants and 70% through votes of an online audience. The next round was a collaborative mission where the groups were randomly chosen to become a pair and prepare a performance together. In the end, TOO was partnered with VERIVERY and they both agreed to perform "On" by BTS where they ranked second out of 3 teams. Overall, it was revealed that their cumulative score was fifth out of 6 teams, meaning they were at risk of eliminations. For the next round, their partners from the previous round had to choose a song for them to cover. The song "Hard Carry" by GOT7 was chosen for them and so they visited GOT7 before a music show for advice on performing their own song. Unfortunately, they had ranked last and was eliminated in the seventh episode.
2021: Management dispute between CJ ENM and n.CH, name change
On January 13, it was reported that CJ ENM had terminated their contract with n.CH Entertainment seven months after TOO's debut and ordered the agency to withdraw all management work for the group. Due to this, the release schedule for the group's third album was also delayed. The following day, n.CH Entertainment issued a statement that details the dispute including not receiving the final management contract for months, that no formal contract was ever signed, unexpected changes to the contract terms, and not being paid for expenses since August 2020.
On January 19, CJ ENM released a statement confirming that they terminated their contract with n.CH Entertainment after being unable to reach an agreement. CJ ENM will take full management over the group.
On March 28, at their performance at KCON:TACT 3, TOO announced they changed their name to TO1 as well as dropping an "O" from their fandom name making it TOgether. All their SNS accounts have also been rebranded.
2021: Re-debut with Re:Born, Re:alize
On April 25, the group announced their first mini album under their new name, scheduled to release in May. On May 4, it was confirmed that the album, titled Re:Born, would be released on May 20.
2022: Chi Hoon's departure, group hiatus, lineup changes
On May 24, WAKEONE announced on TO1's official fan cafe that the group would be halting all scheduled activities including social media activities. They will use this time to reorganize the group, recharge and prepare for their next album.
On June 17, WAKEONE announced that Min Su, Jerome, and Woong Gi had left the group and that three new members would be joining: Daigo, Renta, and Yeo Jeong. It was also revealed that TO1 would be making a comeback with a new album in July.
