SEVENTEEN brings you the best of all three components of K-Pop: Vocal, Performance and Hip Hop.
SEVENTEEN debuted on May 26, 2015 under Pledis Entertainment through a series of debut programs, such as “17TV” and “Seventeen Project: Big Debut Plan”. Through the broadcasts, Pledis introduced the final lineup of 13 boys who will make up their new team. The final lineup for the group consisted of S.Coups, WonWoo, MinGyu, Vernon, WooZi, JeongHan, Joshua, DK, SeungKwan, Hoshi, Jun, The8 and Dino.
As the first new boy group since NU’EST, SEVENTEEN received lots of love and attention since their pre-debut days as the younger brothers to some of the hottest K-Pop girl groups, such as Son DamBi, After School and Orange Caramel.
With most of the members having pre-debut fame and an active participation in their group’s music and choreography, SEVENTEEN is all set to make history as the perfectly well-rounded boy group of the century.
With a recent debut of SEVENTEEN, fans have been in awe over some of the members’ heights, like Mingyu and Wonwoo. It means, standing next to the other members, they look like giraffes. On the other hand, there’re several members who show off their diminutive figures.
Its full list presents the heights of 13 boys from tallest to shortest. We see that Mingyu dominates at a ridiculous height of 185 cm (which is around 6’1″). A majority of the SEVENTEEN members rank in the middle of the list, with S.Coups, Junghan and THE8 at 178 cm (5’10”). And a member may be known for his short legs but when compared to his fellows, he ranks near the bottom in therms of height.
Mingyu (185cm > 6’1″)
Wonwoo (182cm > 5’12”)
Jun (180cm > 5’11”)
Dokyum (179cm > 5’10”)
S.coups, Junghan, THE8 (178cm > 5’10”)
Joshua, Hoshi (177cm > 5’10”)
Vernon (175cm > 5’9″)
Seungkwan (174cm > 5’9″)
Dino (170cm > 5’7″)
Woozi (164cm > 5’5″)
As you can see generally, Woozi is clearly the shortest member of SEVENTEEN and he looks like a baby penguin with his almond shaped eyes and cherry-red lips. What really surprised me is that Seungkwan is taller than Dino.
*Note that this is because the data relied on by the Internet community, it cannot be blind faith. About the height thing, I honestly believe that we will never truly know.
Enter the “bromance.” Defined as “a non-sexual relationship between two men that are unusually close,” bromances are also redefining male friendship in K-pop world. Below are the hottest idols’ bromance scene.
The best type of bromance is easily between two idol boys like BTS V and Seventeen Seungkwan who keep each other and their audience always smiling. While starring on the music show “Show Champion,” they looked like best friends in real life. After the special behind video revealed, rumors began surfacing that the two might be more than just friends jokingly.
Moreover, a vicious triangle is operating here. When Taehyung holding Seungkwan(seventeen)’s hands, there’s Jungkook. Just let’s talk about kookie’s face when he witnessed the secretive moment.
Among severe competitions in music industry, Seventeen sure have a large fan base with competitive marketing strategies which attain much attention from not only pubic but also industry. All these happened only for 6 months since they debuted. They have been together for about 4 years preparing debut under the control of Pledis Entertainment and finally showed up last May with a title ‘Adore U’ of debut album, ‘17 CARAT’, followed by second title song ‘Mansae.’
Figure shows they’ve got already more than 200 thousands of fans and more than 230 thousands followers on official Twitter and Instagram, 450 thousands ‘LIKE’ marks on Facebook. See the outstanding views on Youtube also. Around 7 million hits on ‘Adore U’ and more than 6 million and 400 thousands hits on mini 2nd album ‘Mansae.’
Most important part is an amount of album selling. According to Gaon charts, 1st album sell 47,861 and second album doubled first one to 105,194. What makes us surprised is that it just happened only after 1 month from second album release. That’s formidable. For three months, fandom size has exploded up to twice.
The boys of SEVENTEEN have finally become the first kpop rookie(s) to sell over 100,000 copies in three months! As of November 14, SEVENTEEN’s 2nd mini album “BOYS BE” has sold a total of 100,755 copies including 67,192 copies of its Hide version album and 33,563 copies of its Seek version album. To put this in perspective, no K-pop rookie, which makes debut this year, has sold 100,000 albums in three months since last year. The 13-member boy band is the first new artist of this era to accomplish this remarkable feat.
SEVENTEEN shared, “We sincerely thank everyone who helped us break the valuable record of being a best seller. 2015 has become an unforgettable year for us as we received a lot of love from many people and received good results. In order to return the love, we will become an SEVENTTEN who will continue to work hard next year.”
Sometimes male idols also capture our hearts through their innocent-like charm. Aegyo, as you know, is simply a Korean word that represents a cute and innocent.
