B1A4’s brother group is indeed the next group to watch out for.
In my opinion, I’m not into groups that is younger than me but ONF has this vibe that can capture your heart easily. Before they debuted, they are known as WM Boys and some of my international bana friends (most especially solid WM stans) are already promoting them.
As a Bana, I really hope to see them grow like their B1A4 sunbae-nims. ONF Fighting!
(A/N) I would like to thank some PH ONF stans and one of my BANA friends and ONF stan, Kaythie for helping me get to know these talented boys as I am writing this article.
Jeongmal kamsahamnida! ^^
