A year ago and a half ago, we knew them as that one rookie group with thirteen (not seventeen) members. But with each comeback, they’ve proven in a short amount of time that the members themselves are an all rounded group that can produce and choreograph.
They always used to be in someone’s shadow―After School and Nu'est labelmates, or maybe just another group with a lot of members. But how many rookies get acknowledged with rookie awards and hold solo concerts, not just in Korea but abroad as well? How many idol groups place first on music shows in less than a year from debut? How many groups can confidently claim that they saved their company? Because Seventeen have done just that.
In just a little over a year, Seventeen, you’ve come so far. Thank you for letting us be a part of your journey in 2016; let’s continue to make more memories for 2017 ♡
