Seventeen (SVT) is a popular South Korean boy band put together by Pledis Entertainment. The group has thirteen members: S.Coups: Choi Seung Cheol (Leader), Jeonghan: Yoon Jeong Han, Joshua: Joshua Hong, Jun: Wen Junhui, Hoshi: Kwon Soon Young, Wonwoo: Jeon Won Woo, Woozi: Lee Ji Hoon, DK: Lee Seok Min, Mingyu: Kim Min Gyu, The8: Xu Ming Hao, Seungkwan: Boo Seung Kwan, Vernon: Hansol Vernon Chwe, and Dino: Lee Chan. The group has captivated the Korean audience since its debut, achieving success and making itself one of the main bands in K-pop.
The name SEVENTEEN is derived from an interesting concept of “13 members + 3 units + 1 group.” This expression symbolizes the unique structure of the group, where the 13 members are divided into three subdivisions, each with different specialization, according to their individual talents and styles, but always together as one group.
This concept demonstrates the strength and diversity of the group, allowing each member to shine while contributing to the overall synergy of SEVENTEEN. The group made its debut on May 26, 2015, with the release of the play (EP) 17 Carat. This album made history as the sole rookie album to grace Billboard’s esteemed “10 Best K-Pop Albums of 2015” list and also as the K-pop album with the longest charting presence in the United States. Till now, Seventeen has released four studio albums, three reissues, and twelve EPs.
The members are actively involved in songwriting, choreographing, and other aspects of their music, which is why they are called a self-producing group. Various domestic and international media has labeled them as “Performance Kings,” “K-Pop Performance Powerhouse,” and “Theater Kids of K-Pop,”
