members of SEVENTEEN

Currently, SEVENTEEN is one of the most successful k-pop groups out there. Having thirteen talented members as vocalists, dancers, producers, and rappers, the k-pop group has taken over the world since its debut. With Pledis Entertainment going bankrupt and SEVENTEEN’s debut getting delayed after years of training, both the company and the members had to go through a lot. After making their debut in 2015, SEVENTEEN went on to become one of the best self-producing idol groups in K-Pop.

Giving us hits like ‘Adore You’, ‘Very Nice’, ‘Good To Me’, ‘Getting Closer,’ and a lot more, it’s hard to deny our love for SEVENTEEN. It also makes us curious about the voices behind these songs and how they reached where they are now.
