Since their latest comeback with 'Ready to Love' in June, all the members renewed their contracts with Pledis Entertainment in July. Talking about their records, the quadruple million-seller group entered Billboard 200 at number 15 for their first time since debut with "Your Choice".

Their first-week sales for "Your Choice" had broken their records with more than 1.3 million copies. But with this comeback, SEVENTEEN already sold more than 1.4 million albums in pre-orders in only one day, setting their new record.

In 2021, SEVENTEEN worked on the 2021 project "Power of Love" talking about the different forms of love. It started with 'Bittersweet', then with "Your Choice" and now with "Attacca". With this new release, the group is showing the passion of love and deeper love.

The two Chinese members -Jun and THE8- are absent from this promotion because they focus on their activities in China. Members were asked about how they felt about their absence.  

SeungKwan mentioned that since their debut, they have always been 13 all the time. So members feel empty and miss them, and that not only during their schedule but also in their daily life. He mentioned that the members contact each other a lot.

MinGyu added that they miss each other and they are contacting each other. In addition, they are supporting each other while doing their own schedule.

WonWoo explained that it is their first time to be without them, but that they feel as if they were with them. Jun and THE8 "prepared a lot of content before going so fans will not be able to feel their absence."

In this album, there are 3 unit songs, 'PANG!' (Performance Team), 'Imperfect love' (Vocal Team) and 'I can't run away' (Hiphop Team). SeungKwan mentioned that fans would feel something new about these unit releases. 

All the international fans might have waited for this: the first-ever English release by SEVENTEEN! It is the digital release '2 MINUS 1' by Joshua and Vernon. They wanted to show their love to overseas fans with this release, and they said they hope that overseas fans like it.

Joshua talked a bit more about how he worked on the song with Vernon. He explained: "Vernon suggested to do Pop Punk, and when I listened to it, it remembered me from the 2000s and listening to Avril Lavigne. I thought that it should be nice to remind us of the past and put in the song."

When asked about the genre of the SEVENTEEN songs, Joshua answered: "Rather than focusing on the genre, I focus on the theme that can deliver the message the best, that is the most important".

2021 was a busy year for SEVENTEEN and Hoshi closed the press conference with a funny line.

Referring to their 2021 project "Power of Love", he said that this was the year of loving CARAT, making a joke in Korean with 사랑해 (sa-rang-hae = love) which is a play on words because 해 (hae=year).
