To give a little background, SEVENTEEN is a South Korean band that was formed by Pledis Entertainment Agency that consisted of 13 members in 2015. The band has disembarked all the rumors of disbanding by renewing their contract with Pledis Entertainment and will release their new music near mid-October this year. The boy band has released three studio albums so far alongside one compilation album, eleven extended plays, and twenty singles in total. Even after all the success that they have achieved throughout their years, the boyband still aims to be known due to the latest announcement of their release of the new album, as their agency confirms.
The rumor of disbanding
However, even though Mingyu (one of the Singers in SEVENTEEN) had been accused of bullying a former classmate, the band has renewed its reputation after the Pledis Entertainment Agency investigated the charges against Mingyu. Moreover, after his classmate publicly made it known that he expects nothing from the singer and especially does not want him to be removed from the band except an apology, things turned in favor of SEVENTEEN and helped them establish their reputation within the K-pop industry. Because of this resolution, even the rumors of the band disbanding were put to rest quite easily.
Even though more details regarding the album can only be expected near the release date of the album, the news of SEVENTEEN’S comeback has become a huge talk in town. Even NME’s (National Musical Express: A British music and culture website, and brand), Puah Ziwie made several remarks about how SEVENTEEN’s last album is a good symbol of how the band has still got what it takes to become a famous Korean band among the already existing fierce competitions.
How did ‘Your Choice’ help the band establish its reputation?
After releasing their last mini-album, ‘Your Choice’, the band has promised to make a comeback by releasing another album just after the two months of their last release. This has not only made the fans excited but has provided the brand the opportunity to prove their authentic style and how fuelled their creativity is to meet their fan’s expectations. Even though there were some blunders made by the band in ‘Your Choice’, their creative streak has not been stubbed as they promised their release. Moreover, it is worth noting that the boyband is certain to re-sign with the Pledis Entertainment Agency quite ahead of the expiration of their seven-year contract in 2022.
Furthermore, due to the trust and strong teamwork of the band, the agency and the members decided to renew all thirteen contracts to give out spellbinding performances to the world. Moreover, with their hit single in ‘Your Choice,’ the band has proved that their talent is truly limitless if given the correct guidance. But what this always conveys is that there is a deep-rooted understanding between all the members of the band and their agency, even though there is always the risk of too many people spoiling the broth. The boyband has still managed to give each member their own personality and individual sounds constantly.
Therefore, to conclude, after the desperate wait by the fans, SEVENTEEN is indeed back in business and has disembarked any rumors of disbanding after their agency promised their new release near the fall time (mid-October) and everyone around the world is looking for the band’s renewal after overcoming the bad press they had gathered within the last year due to one of their band members.
