On Nate Pann, one user made a post where they talk about the report stating that CJ ENM persuaded WANNA ONE members Ong Seong Wu and NU'EST Min Hyun, who initially objected to participating in the reunion but eventually decided to join after a long persuasion.

The user commented, "Can it be considered as 'persuasion' in a situation where the members who opposed the reunion were criticized by fans? This is not persuasion, it is intimidation."

A separate user commented, "Please let WANNA ONE be a memory. The fandom of all 10 members is against it. Neither the members nor the fans want it. It is a reunion only for CJ ENM."

On the contrary, there are voices in favor of WANNA ONE's reunion. Numerous posts were made on Twitter, suggesting that it's not the group's fault and that other people should not restrict the members' activities.
