[SEVENTEEN] stayed true to [their] image by showing the feelings of a boy figuring out what love is. Seungkwan stated, “But we didn’t think ‘fresh’ necessarily meant ‘bright,‘” and explained that for this comeback, they wanted to show the emotions of a boy experiencing sorrow for the first time. This is in line with SEVENTEEN’s goal for this album, which is to let their fans and the public know that they can pull off many different music styles. U. Kim, for Soompi.

Exclusive: SEVENTEEN Reveals Powerful And Charismatic Side To The Group At Comeback Showcase “Al1”

SEVENTEEN is back with their fourth mini album “Al1,” and Soompi was at their comeback showcase on May 23!

After posing for group, unit, and individual photos (see bottom of article for exclusive pictures), the members sat down to answer various questions about how they prepared for their new album.

“Fresh” is a huge keyword for SEVENTEEN, and all of their previous title songs, “Adore U,” “Mansae,” “Pretty U,” “Very Nice,” and “BOOMBOOM,” stayed true to this image by showing the feelings of a boy figuring out what love is. Seungkwan stated, “But we didn’t think ‘fresh’ necessarily meant ‘bright,‘” and explained that for this comeback, they wanted to show the emotions of a boy experiencing sorrow for the first time. This is in line with SEVENTEEN’s goal for this album, which is to let their fans and the public know that they can pull off many different music styles.

Along with the change in their music style, SEVENTEEN has also changed up their performance style to match their song. Hoshi, leader of the performance team, commented, “Together with our choreographer and the performance team, we expressed the complicated and sad emotions through movements in the members’ positions. I was inspired not only by modern dance, but also by things that aren’t related to dance. For example, I was walking back to the dorms one day when I saw a streetlight. It fit well with our song’s mood, so I decided to incorporate it into the choreography.”

SEVENTEEN has 13 members, which is a lot of people. It’s not easy to make decisions when so many people are involved in the process, but SEVENTEEN seems to have no problems. Woozi said, “We have an easygoing atmosphere when we work on music. When anyone comes up with an idea that isn’t too great, we either joke about it or slightly let them know that the idea isn’t very good. That way, everyone feels comfortable about giving ideas, and we don’t have any conflicts when working together. We actually collide more when deciding what we’ll eat that day or who’s going to be in charge of cleaning.” Seungkwan added that their key to great teamwork is constant communication.

When they were asked about being compared to EXO and BTS, the members said that it was an honor for them to be grouped with them.

2017 is a special year for SEVENTEEN, as the number “2017” contains their group name. The “2017 SEVENTEEN Project” was created from this coincidence, and the album “Al1” is the first part of the project. While not much is known about the “2017 SEVENTEEN Project,” fans can expect to see more releases from SEVENTEEN.

Tbh, the best part of The Pink Tour for me is gonna be playing WITWILT? (Where In The World Is Louis Tomlinson?) and seeing just how many times he suspiciously pops up near where Harry’s performing. 

OR OR waiting to see if The Bears will make a comeback with shows.

Look, I know it’s hard not to be disappointed and I think just let people be disappointed, it’s their own money they spent. But being disappointed is not the same as being mad at bangtan themselves for it. So I hope no one is actually mad at bangtan, coz that’s just unreasonable. Also for some fans, especially those who haven’t had a chance to buy WINGS, then buying this new album is a great opportunity to finally own all the songs plus the new ones. I just hope we don’t regret buying the physical copy since it really does help bangtan a lot. Not just for this comeback but for award shows as well~

BUT IN THE END I hope all these doesn’t take away from the fact that it’s still a comeback and we have 4 new songs to look forward to. And that Bangtan worked hard for this and has been working non-stop all these years. And what with a World Tour coming up too ;_; Also, they really literally can’t stop talking about the new songs so I really hope we still try our best to help them succeed with this album. ^_^ 

As always, thank you all so much for doing your best to support Bangtan in everything they do. ♥
