The leader position in K-pop groups is one of the most important positions because the leader has the responsibility to take care of the members and explain the group’s concept in every promotion they have.
Every company or agency has its own rules and principles in picking or choosing someone to be a group leader. In ONEUS, there is no specific and fixed information about who is the leader of the group.
