There were many memorable rookies who debuted this year; The Ark, iKON, TWICE, GFriend, CLC, MONSTA X, UP10TION, and many others. The one that I enjoyed the most was Pledis Entertainment‘s 13 member boy group SEVENTEEN!
Made up of S.Coups, DK, Jeonghan, Seungkwan, Vernon, Joshua, Woozi, Wonwoo, Mingyu, Jun, The8, Dino, and Hoshi, this group is definitely a force to be reckoned with. Along with composing their own songs, they also choreograph their own dance routines! SEVENTEEN are super rookies!
Not only are they one whole group, they’re also made up of 3 sub-units; the hip-hop unit (S.Coups, Vernon, Mingyu, and Wonwoo), the vocal unit (DK, Joshua, Woozi, Seungkwan, and Jeonghan), and the performance unit (The8, Jun, Hoshi, and Dino). 13 members + 3 units + 1 group = 17, which is how they got their name.
Debuting with album ‘17 Carat‘ and title song ‘Adore U‘ these 13 boys certainly made their mark on the K-Pop world!
I promised myself I would not get into anymore groups after last year, but fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on how you look at it), I have fallen in love with SEVENTEEN! I struggled not to like them when they debuted and I did well, until their released their second mini album ‘Boys Be‘ and that was it; I was hooked. Of course, I had to buy their albums and I love every single track on both of them.
What’s not to love about these adorable kiddos? Especially when they upload videos such as these part switch videos below!
