Melting Point, a track that encapsulates the warmth and magic of the holiday season. The accompanying music video, recently unveiled to eager fans, transports viewers to a winter wonderland. A charming and cosy setting adorned with snow, festive decorations, and the members of ZEROABSEONE dressed in stylish winter attire. Embodying a cute and soft version of themselves that adds an extra layer of charm to the performance. ZEROSEs (ZEROBASEONE's fandom name for their fans) have been quick to express their love for Melting Point, praising the group for delivering a holiday anthem that brings joy and warmth to the winter season.

Before ZEROBASEONE: Jiwoong has debuted in other groups including INX, B.I.T and ATEEN. As well as being an actor in many TV shows. For example he has acted in "The Sweet Blood" and "Kissable Lips". Jiwoong who was born 14 December 1998 always displayed a keen interest in music always wanting to be a successful idol. Leading to him joining a survival show called Boy's Planet.

Boy's Planet: Boy's Planet was a survival show which created the group ZEROBASEONE. Where boys from all over the world joined to have a chance at achieving their dream. Contestants underwent rigorous training, faced various challenges, and navigated the intense pressure of eliminations. They would then be ranked by public vote only, Jiwoong's resilience and commitment stood out, to the talented but strict mentors but also capturing the hearts of the show's viewers. Allowing Jiwoong to maintain a spot in the top9 in every elimination. Securing his position in the debuting team, allowing his and his loyal fans determination and effort to pay off.

Awards and Achievements: Even though ZEROBASEONE is a newly debuted group. They have won many awards including the prestigious Rookie of the Year award at MAMA 2023, very recently. Jiwoong's ecstatic reactions to ZEROBASEONE's victories not only reflect his genuine joy but also solidify his endearing role as the "fake maknae" (youngest member) within the group. Fans affectionately refer to Jiwoong as the "fake maknae" due to his playful and youthful demeanour, contrasting with the traditional role of the oldest member in other K-pop groups. The "fake maknae" trend gains traction on social media, with fans using hashtags and making edits to celebrate Jiwoong's playful role within the group.
