An idol who has been putting emphasis on debuting rookies lately


translated from http://www.instiz.net/pt/3931625

This rookie Seventeen


Reporter Kim Joo Hyung of Beffreport: “Seventeen is one of
the teams that has been getting mentioned everywhere. Being mentioned everywhere
means that you have reached the top-trend rank.”
A reporter of one Entertainment said that “Seventeen has
been putting an emphasis on debuting rookie idols. Seventeen is a measurement for
popularity these days”
Indeed, “Seventeen”-like, better than “Seventeen”, Seventeen
has become a new criteria, appealing with their various colors.
As mentioned earlier Seventeen’s strength that makes every
rookie envy is their diversity, diversity that is not only made out of numbers
but the fact that all 13 has this fresh feeling to them while keeping
the professionalism. 

Yet a rookie but does not seem like one.


When countless idol groups debut and then disappear without
a single sound public now wants a “Pro”.
Seventeen has everything starting from a good song, skills to save the
song and all the way to superior visuals. Many seniors including VIXX chose
Seventeen as juniors who were catching their eyes, which is not surprising.
Seventeen has been making outstanding records; on 14th
Pledis announced that “Seventeen’s first
full album “Love&Letter” re-entered the Billboard’s World TOP 10 Albums
Chart”. Topping the Tower Records chart in Japan two days before, also the day
before they grabbed the first place in the national music chart. The
sales of Seventeen’s  albums surpassed 80 000
copies showing records that are unusual for an idol 2 years into debut.
MV for 아주nice reached 5 million views
in just one week. With results that are
shown on numbers and that makes articles come out every day, the growth of
Seventeen is ’아주 NICE’.
We all know that with whatever song Seventeen comes out it
won’t be weird as they can pull off any color adding their own producing to
everything, as they wear their own “Seventeen” clothes.
Isn’t there a joke that genre of Seventeen’s music called “Seventeen”.


Kwon Soo Bin reporter of Seoul/News1Star: There is a name
that always comes up among shareholders in the music industry. A name that has
been mentioned every time one talks about the hottest groups – Seventeen.

Beating the worry about “too many members”, they gradually
built their fandom with “Adore u” and “Mansae”, winning 1st place
with their title track “Pretty U” of the first full album “Love&Letter” two
years into debut.
Bursting with energy performances and refreshing songs
that match their image all makes sense why one has no choice but to like Seventeen.
Showing off their ability to make their own song and choreography,
rap all the way to producing they recently appeared on MBC’s variety program “My
Little Television” showing their composing skills on a live show and proved
their capability.


An industry official to News1Star said “Seventeen definitely
stands out among other boy idol groups. 2 years into debut there is no other idol
group with popularity on their level” “their ‘Pretty U’ sales and their current
position are honestly surprising”.

With already third solo concert ahead of them at the end
of July they are building a solid fanbase. Starting from art hall to SK Olympic Gymnasium Hall and
now to Jamsil Indoor Stadium they have been upgrading their venues with every
concert, at this rate predicting to fill out the Gymnastics Stadium in near
It seems like every new idol group start at the same
start line but the race situation shows the differences between them.
Lately it’s regrettable not to include these idols among “Top
trend Idols” talk

“Trending Idol” “Refreshing Idol” “Universal Idol” “Self-producing
all these are about a group that have proved them by receiving a support
of many fans, Seventeen. Seventeen who
debuted in May last year just in one year moved up to a level of popular boy
groups entering “Top trend Idols”.

Seventeen is well-known
as “Self-made idols” members being involved in writing, composing, producing
and making their own choreography.
They have been killing fans by making their own songs and directing
their stages that fully show members’ charms and music that perfectly reflects fan’s

Seventeen’s current moves makes expect them to face current
dominating top groups despite being from a small company.
Their recent promotions and upcoming tour definitely proves
the recent “Trendline” EXO – BTS – SEVENTEEN.  With previous hit songs “Adore u” and “Mansae”
they showed an outstanding growth among rookies, with rapid growth of the fandom
they held a first solo concert at the end of the last year and an encore concert
earlier this year, showing their possibilities as trending idols. 

Their result as a one year old rookie group who came from a
small company is outstanding.
Music industry officials are looking in positive lights at continuously
expanding Seventeen’s growth

[ENG] SEVENTEEN’s Interview @ Haru Hana Magazine (Part 3)


Parts: [1] [2] [3]

※The interview was done before the comeback in the middle of April.

Music production episode—Secret talk about producing music & special stage


What is your inspiration for composing music?

WW: Reading books, movies, dramas etc. becomes the hint for
writing lyrics and stage performances.

VN: It’s the trend. Because lyrics are the stories of this era.
Because (I) want to write lyrics that everyone can relate to, I often search up
on trends on the internet.

SC: You have to have a lot of imagination. Sketching out the
music video on your mind, and writing lyrics according to that scene. But the MV that I always think about is always totally different from the actual MV. (laughs)

Q: How did you all create the concept for the choreography?

HS: After listening to the music, we will first hold a concept
meeting within the unit. We considered concepts like should we be good
students, should we be bad students. From then, I will search for items that
complies with this concept, and after that, it’s the time to start making the
choreography. Then, we will gather everyone one by one, and make changes to the
choreography that we already have.

MG: In the instance of PRETTY U, we rewatched “High School
Musical” while preparing for the choreography. We were really concerned about
how should we do it to make it fun and overflowing with energy on the stage.

WW: This time’s use of books in our performance is also a point,
because it’s the first time we used small props, we couldn’t really imagine it
happening…. We are a bit worried because of that.
