Before he joined Produce 101 Season 2 and successfully debuted as part of Wanna One, Ha Sung Woon was trained at Alpha Music Academy, when he got accepted in the 8th Open Audition of JYP through his dancing audition. He later joined Star Crew Entertainment (formerly known as Ardor&Able) and debuted with Hotshot as the main vocalist on October 29, 2014, with a digital single “Take a Shot”.
In this article, though, we will talk about Ha Sung Woon as he pursues a solo career after his activities with Wanna One officially ended, so keep reading!
My Moment Album Details
Sung Woon’s first solo release, My Moment, was released on February 28, 2019, featuring the upbeat lead single “Bird”. The singer held a showcase at Live Hall in Gwangjin-gu, Seoul on February 27. The album consists of five tracks, which were all written and composed by Sung Woon, himself. He also served as the executive producer and participated in the production process, such as mixing and mastering.
Behind Title Track Bird
Explaining the title song ”Bird”, Ha Sung Woon said, “This song contains the meaning that I will become a bird, reincarnate and fly up to the peak“. This song contains a refreshing melody backed by a sophisticated drum beat and synth pad. Despite the change in the song’s climax, it still holds the direction of the whole track. In addition, the attractive melody and vocal harmony have genuinely represented the image of a cheerful bird flapping its wings.
The song’s music video creates an atmosphere filled with hope when Ha Sung Woon brings along his dream to move forward. The male singer expressed his thoughts on the music video’s highlight, “There are clouds in there. I eat clouds. The meaning of that action is a secret. They can be real clouds. There is also the image of me flying in the sky. Everyone, enjoy the MV happily.”
Meaning Behind Debut Date
Not long after Ha Sung Woon shared the announcement with the date of his album release, many fans were aware of the deep meaning behind his solo debut date. February 28 (28/2) is the same time as when Sung Woon was dramatically announced as the last member to debut with Wanna One.
In the last episode of the reality survival show Produce 101 Season 2, BoA, as the official representative of national producers, announced the top eleven of trainees. The eleven trainees from different agencies would conduct promotions for a year and a half as members of Wanna One.
Sung Woon was announced as the last trainee to debut with Wanna One at exactly 2:28 a.m. local time. Unlike other programs, the last rank on this event is always mentioned after the official representative of national producers announced the first rank.
So, the fans think that Sung Woon deliberately chose that date as a reminder of his debut with Wanna One and the beginning of his success in the entertainment industry.
Debut Stage Performance Video
On February 27, Ha Sung Woon held a showcase for his first solo album “My Moment” at the Yes24 Live Hall in Seoul. On his debut showcase he performed 2 songs from the album ‘My Moment’, ‘Bird’ and ‘Remember You’, and his first live performance on a music show was at M Countdown.
Let’s we watch together his fresh-looking comeback on M Countdown!

On March 13, Ha Sung Woon got his first win with “Bird” on Show Champion. Other groups/soloists like LOONA, ITZY, (G)-Idle, Monsta X, SF9, and Hong Jinyoung also performed that day!
