Xuan Yi with WJSN (Cosmic Girls)

This group has four subunits, namely Wonder, Joy, Sweet, and Nature. The subunit that consists of Xuan Yi, Eunso, and Yeoreum is named “Joy” which was the 2nd unit to be revealed from Cosmic Girls after the “Wonder” unit, on December 17th, 2015.

Then, Xuan Yi and her group officially debuted on February 25th, 2016, with the release of their first Extended Play (EP) titled Would You Like? and the title tracks “Mo Mo Mo” and “Catch Me.” They made their first appearance on February 25th, 2016, in Mnet’s weekly music program M! Countdown singing their single “Mo Mo Mo.” In Cosmic Girls (WJSN), Xuan Yi got the position as the lead dancer and also sub-vocalist. Here is a video of her first performance with Cosmic Girls!

Xuan Yi’s Appearance in Produce 101

After promoting several years with Cosmic Girls, in 2018 Wu Xuan Yi auditioned and made it into a contestant in the popular survival show program Produce 101 (创造101) in China along with her groupmate, Meng Mei Qi. This program was aired from April 21st to June 23rd, 2018, on the Tencent Video channel.

In this program, 11 winners would be promoting in one group even though they have debuted before. Xuan Yi managed to get in 2nd place and became the winner in episode 10, while Mei Qi got 1st place and they both are artists in the same agency, Yuehua Entertainment. Here are the moments of Xuan Yi as a contestant in Produce 101 in China!

Xuan Yi as a Rocket Girls 101 Member

After occupying 2nd place in Produce 101 in China, Xuan Yi along with 10 other members debuted into a group named Rocket Girls 101. This group debuted on June 23rd, 2018, under Wajijiwa Entertainment, Sonny Music label, and others, and the group officially disbanded on June 23rd, 2020, because the group had an exclusive contract for only two years.

Xuan Yi got a position as lead dancer, vocalist, and also became a visual member in Rocket Girls 101. This group debuted by releasing the singles “Rocket Girls” and “Collide” with the Extended Play (EP) titled Collide (撞).

However, before releasing the official single and holding a press conference (exactly two days before, on August 9th, 2018) suddenly Xuan Yi’s agency, Yuehua Entertainment announced that Xuan Yi and Mei Qi wouldn’t join Rocket Girls 101. This was because there was a problem between Yuehua Entertainment and Rocket Girls 101’s agency regarding a promotion agreement.

Then, on August 17th, 2018, the two agencies reached an agreement, and Xuan Yi re-joined Rocket Girls 101. If you wanna see her in Rocket Girls 101, here is the video compilation of Xuan Yi!
