1. MYSTERY OF GLOW

The six beautiful goddesses opened up the night with a special performance of their sub-track, ‘Glow’. The girls were dressed in beautiful gold jackets that were certainly glowing with beauty. As Alice and YeoReum led the sweet ballad, they stood up from their seats to approach the center stage to showcase a smooth set of choreography. Although the song was a sub-track, ‘Glow’ certainly has the potential to become the title track as it’s the perfect song that shines each of the girls’ vocal abilities.

2. MYSTERY OF GODDESSES

The girls stood at the center stage to greet the audience, and we couldn’t help but notice the 6 girls’ stunning proportions. Their legs went on for miles and miles! Although we’ve seen a lot of idol ladies before, we can’t help but be amazed by HELLOVENUS’s heights that could leave super models crying. It’s no wonder why the group is nicknamed the idols of goddesses!

For the second stage of the night, the girls put on an epic performance of their new title track, ‘Mysterious’. The girls were accompanied by 6 handsome men in black as they showcased their addictive hit-in-the-making. With long arms and gorgeous legs, the girls’ dancing shined brightly with mesmerizing lines. We think that the girls’ new dance will surely be a hit, thanks to the hide and seek like point dances that doesn’t fail to retain the girls’ sexy image!

While we were totally mesmerized by the 6 ladies’ stunning performance, one member in particular caught our eyes. SeoYoung has a knack for the perfect facial expressions! All throughout the stage, SeoYoung had the cutest expressions on – whether she was at the center or not. With her tiny winks, shy smiles, and captivating glances, she had our undivided attention. It was as if the stage followed the idol around, creating her position as the main center stage!

Now that we’ve seen the main title track’s performance, it was time to break down it down to the main point dances! The dancing machine of the group, Lime took the main stage to showcase the girls’ new focal points of their performance. The first dance point was titled the “Targeting the Enemy”. The dance features the girls circling around with each other while holding a gun, then suddenly pointing it towards the audience. The girls’ second dance point was called the “Mermaid Wave”, where the girls go back and forth showcasing their body waves, while shooting out hand guns.

6. MYSTERY OF FLOWER BOYS

HELLOVENUS welcomed two beautiful flower boys for their music video filming. The girls’ featured their label brothers Seo KangJoon and ASTRO’s Cha EunWoo for their new music video. The girls recalled the day as they first laid eyes on the boys. Lime recalled Seo KangJun as the most caring senior who cheered on them with so much love. YeoReum then took the mic to mention how they were devastated when Cha EunWoo arrived onto the set. Cha EunWoo’s beauty and natural vitamin-like energy took over as the girls recalled how they realized just how much prettier the male idol was compared to them. Although we know that it’s just the girls’ overflowing love for their junior, apparently their music video director was more mesmerized by EunWoo than the girls!

7. MYSTERY OF SISTERHOOD

The fact that Nara became a hot sensation much faster than the group itself couldn’t go unnoticed. With her endless amount of CF love calls, Nara was asked how she felt about receiving a solo spotlight. Nara revealed how she couldn’t help but feel sorry for receiving more schedules and attention than the rest of the girls. However, she revealed that the members continuously monitor and cheer on her solo activities as they became a solid shoulder to lean on during her stressful scheduling. YooYoung then spoke up to reveal how each of the members were always frustrated that Nara’s potential wasn’t discovered a long time ago. Now that Nara is getting her chance to shine, the members are thankful and excited for her new adventures as her fame will also spread he awareness of the girls as a whole.

8. MYSTERY OF HELLOVENUS

The girls took the time to discuss how they felt about their career so far. Although it’s been 6 years since their debut, the girls have yet to see much success in their music career. YeoReum revealed that although their music scores haven’t met the specific expectations, the girls look back on each of their albums fondly as a time that the girls and their fans got to spend with each other. Although the girls could’ve been negative about their travels so far, each member was full of happiness as they exuded bright and positive energies. Even so, they did have their moments of doubts during the past 6 years. The girls revealed that during those times they rely heavily on their fans. They would go into their fan cafes and read the fans’ messages to revive their motivation to continue on diligently and meet their fans with a comeback. We don’t doubt that 2017 will be the girls’ year to shine!

2. SEVENTEEN HIP HOPPERS

The hip hop team – S.Coups, MinGyu, Vernon and WonWoo – came out to pose by themselves. Starting from WonWoo to S. Coups, all three boys leaned their heads towards the left, where the tall and handsome MinGyu stood to support his members. The pose was a celebratory reference to their team’s song “Lean”, which is featured on the new album. Sweet, witty and absolutely talented – the hip hop team has it all!

For their first performance stage, the boys put on their newest title track, ‘BOOMBOOM’ – and it was just magic. The stage was filled to the brim with the dazzling performance by the SEVENTEEN boys. The members all had on their game face with amusing, yet charismatic, expressions even while they were dancing on the side. They’re already known to have excellent performance manners, but to actually see them live is a whole another story. Through the whole song, SEVENTEEN had our hearts going like boom-boom-boom-boom!

4. SEVENTEEN GROOVE

The boys are back at it again! When you think of SEVENTEEN, you can’t leave out the group’s stunning choreography style. The boys are constantly on the move, and just as well for their ‘BOOMBOOM’ choreography! They utilize their diamond hidden jackets perfectly to represent their signature ‘BOOM BOOM’ routine. With 13 members, you’d think the positions would tend to stay in the same formations, but SEVENTEEN defies the odds by using the entirety of the stage to their advantage. Through innovative formations, the group flawlessly expressed their witty creativity. Add in the fact that they’re all on the same sync from start to finish, and you’ve got the makings of a globally renown K-Pop group on the rise!

5. SEVENTEEN SEUNGKWAN

SeungKwan is without a doubt the mood maker of the group. Although many of the boys were probably shivering with nerves on the inside, the clever member helped brighten the mood by throwing in his humorous jokes. What’s even more fascinating is that SeungKwan’s just funny even when he doesn’t try to be. He was describing how he lost so much for the comeback when he dissed himself by saying that he felt bad that he was the only member who kept getting chubbier and chubbier. Through their naturally calorie burning choreography, personal fitness training and portion control, SeungKwan lost a whopping 7 kg!

6. SEVENTEEN PRODUCER

Every one of the members took one part or another in creating their new return. Through composing, choreographing, and diverse preparation, the boys poured their hearts and souls into their 3rd mini-album. Among the 13 members, Woozi has definitely put in a lot towards the album. Considering that they’re currently on the rise with higher and higher expectations, the shortest member constantly felt the pressure and had draft after draft of their potential songs on repeat. Whether he was on the move, in the studio or having a down time at their dorm, he expressed how he worked hard to find that signature SEVENTEEN sound in their new music – and we think he definitely succeeded!

7. SEVENTEEN ALBUMS

The new album has a surprising twist to the comeback! There are 3 different versions of “Going Seventeen” – Make a Wish, Make it Happen and Make it Seventeen. Each album holds a special meaning for the group as they expressed how the three albums represents a special keyword. In his sexy voice, Vernon repeated the album titles in English and explained their meanings. Make a Wish stands for their dreams that they’ve held since their trainee days. Make it Happen stands for their journey so far, and Make it Seventeen represents their desire to solidify their style of music to last a lifetime.

8. SEVENTEEN CARATS

With 3 different versions of the album, you’d think the album making process is a delicate one – and it is! However, S. Coups mentioned that whenever the boys prepare for another album, they always have one thing and one thing in the center of their mind. That’s the CARATS. He wishes that each album that they produce will reflect their deep gratitude and love for their fans, and the ears of the world.

9. SEVENTEEN CHEERS

We can all tell that SEVENTEEN is a group that is constantly changing and improving. On that note, SeungKwan revealed a special inside episode. Before the team goes on stage, Hoshi always has a specific cheer that they chant together to rile themselves up. However, the cheer has changed! Hoshi explained that he always wants to be a step above change, so he changed the cheer phrase to “Let’s do it, boomboom!” It perfectly embodies the group’s new album as well as their heart thumping performances!

10. SEVENTEEN FLOWERS

The couch is back! SEVENTEEN’s signature couch is back, but this time it decorates the stage for not a dance song, but a ballad song. To close off their showcase, the boys performed their new sub-track, ‘Smile Flower’. Showered in the sweetest melody, the 13 boys sang their hearts out to their everlasting loves. SEVENTEEN are kings at performances, but they’re also the kings of expressing such beautiful emotions in such beautiful vocals. An extra treat for the fans! The hip hop team members sing rather than rap, and we’ve never heard more striking vocals!

11. SEVENTEEN GOING AND GOING

SEVENTEEN’s come a long way since their pre-debut days. Still, with increasing popularity comes increasing standards of expectation. The boys explained that although they may have decent records and incredible success on the music charts, they’re always critical of themselves. In order to grow and continue improving themselves to be the best that they can be, they believe that when others shower them with praise, they need to focus and realize their points of improvement. The professional mindsets of the boys, who are still young in age, always floor us. Congrats on your epic comeback, SEVENTEEN!
