Seventeen Talks Songwriting, K-Pop Industry And Group Dynamic

It’s been four years since Seventeen arrived on the scene with their debut album in 17 Carat, and since then the boy band has gone on to become one of the K-pop industry’s most dynamic groups. After rocketing to prominence initially for their funky fresh dance singles and captivating choreography, over the years the 13-member team has gone on to explore a variety of sounds, focusing predominantly on euphoric and reflective synth-pop tracks in recent years. Throughout it all, they've built up a beloved fandom in the form of their dedicated Carats.

Known for their hands-on approach to their career with members acting as the driving forces behind not only their sound but also their performances, Seventeen closed out KCON 2019 New York earlier this month, held at the Javits Center and Madison Square Garden in Manhattan over July 6-7. While in town, 12 of the group’s 13 members – Boo Seungkwan injured his ankle prior to the event – sat down to discuss their musicality and career so far, and how they view their place in the larger K-pop world at a time when the South Korean music industry’s presence is becoming more dominant on a global level.

I knew this was coming and even though I usually dislike English versions of the song, I'm super excited for this one since I love the original so so much.
