K-pop stars Seventeen say their latest EP “Your Choice” and lead single “Ready to Love” show off a more mature concept and sound but the motivations behind their music remain the same.
Formed in 2015 in South Korea, the band has racked up more than two billion streams worldwide, and is best known for hits such as “HOME;RUN” and “Left & Right.”
Seventeen is riding on the smash success of two back-to-back albums last year – “;” (Semicolon) and “Heng:garae” with each selling over a million copies.
S.COUPS, rapper and leader of the group, said, “Rather than saying that we’ve matured in a specific way, we’ve just always tried to sincerely convey our most honest emotions through our music and lyrics.”
With 13 members and 3 units, the group produces much of their own material, music and choreography.
The group says their fans, known as CARATs, inspire them to bring out a better album each and every time.
