seeing seventeen crying at their fanmeet had me crying and thinking about how much they went through. from training relentlessly and being promised a debut date only for it to keep getting pushed back so they trained harder, sang harder, rapped harder, danced harder all day and all night only to be told time and time again that their debut wasn’t ready but here we are now two years later and they’ve become one of the most popular groups in the industry and have been recognized as ‘self-producing’ idols, have unique and amazing choreography, keep producing hit songs that top the charts and have an enormous fanbase that just keeps growing day by day. i hope they know that their family, friends and fans are so proud of them. so proud of them for staying humble despite their rising popularity. so proud of them for not giving up even when things got tough. so proud of them for chasing their dreams and showing the world their passion. thank you seventeen for all that you’ve done.
