Who is Seventeen?

 
          

Seventeen, also stylized as SEVENTEEN or SVT, is a South Korean boy group formed by Pledis Entertainment in 2015. The group consists of thirteen members who are separated into three sub-units, each with different areas of specialization: a 'Hip-Hop Unit', 'Vocal Unit', and 'Performance Unit'. They have released one studio album and four extended plays. The group's members have been deeply involved in the composition and production of their discography and choreography since debut, leading to the nickname "self-producing" idol group.

In December 2012, it was announced that a seventeen member boy group will soon debut under the name SEVENTEEN with the average age of 17. The TV show, Seventeen TV will show the members of Seventeen going through their training and debut preparations as well as their everyday lives. The show started broadcasting in January 2013 and ended in August 2014 with five seasons. Seventeen also appeared in the reality TV show Seventeen Project: Big Debut Plan, broadcast on MBC between May 26, 2015, where the members had completed missions while being split into a hip-hop unit, a vocal unit, and a performance unit.

On May 26, the group made their debut with a live showcase televised by broadcasting network MBC. They had a one-hour live showcase, with label mates After School's Raina and Lizzy as MC, on a major broadcasting network, the first for any K-Pop group. Three days later, the group released their debut mini-album 17 Carat with the title song "Adore U", with the title song described as a funky pop song about a teenage boy trying to navigate through puppy love. The song marks the beginning of the group's trilogy and represents a boy meeting a girl. Members Woozi helped to write and produce all of the tracks on the mini album, while Hoshi created the choreography for the pre-release "Shining Diamond" and the title track "Adore U". The song was critically acclaimed charting high with various reviews noting as a group to watch in 2015.
