It has been 10 years since the legendary British boy band One Direction debuted, and it has been a whole rollercoaster both for the members and the fans! With their hits “What Makes You Beautiful” which now has reached 1.1 billion views, One Direction has given a new impact for the music industry as well as fandom culture.

Though they are very popular, it wasn’t a smooth path, of course. There were moments where fans were shocked by many things, mainly regarding to the members. You may remember when Louis and Zayn clashed with each other, when the boys are called out for featuring a monkey in their music video, and when Zayn Malik signed a new contract.

Though the band also went hiatus since January 2016, members are still connecting with fans through their individual projects. 23rd July 2020 marked their 10th years of their journey, and members just couldn’t keep themselves from being all emotional, which are reflected in their Instagram posts.

Here are how they’re expressing their feeling about #10yearsof1D in their Instagram account.

I’ve been struggling to put into words how grateful I am for everything that’s happened over the last ten years. I’ve seen things and places that I’d only ever dreamt of when I was growing up. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and working with some of the most incredible people, and gained friendships that I know I will treasure for the rest of my life. None of this would be possible without the support you’ve given along the way. And for that, I will be forever thankful. I just can’t believe it’s been ten years. Thank you to our crew, our team, and everyone else who helped us along the way. To all the fans, I love you, and I thank you with all my heart. You did it all, and you changed everything. And finally.. to the boys, I love you so much, and I couldn’t be prouder of everything we achieved together. Here’s to ten. H

A post shared by One Direction (@onedirection) on

Before they went hiatus, the last time One Direction’s official Instagram uploaded a photo was in May 2019, with the animation of the band’s member in a Family Guy cartoon. After that, one day before their 10th years anniversary the account uploaded photos with “10 Years of One Direction” written on it.

On the D-day, the account uploaded a short video of their 10 years recap which full version could be watched in their official YouTube. They also uploaded a “10 Years Anniversary YouTube Schedule” which is going on until July 28th 2020, letting fans mass stream their videos. Lastly,  4 photos of 5 members when they’re formed as a band was uploaded as well, with the caption “Where it all began #10YearsOf1D”

Zayn Malik didn’t post anything related to One Direction 10th years anniversary, which made many fans feel saddened and disappointed at the same time. He left One Direction in 2015, which was the year before the band decided to go on a hiatus.
