Okay so now a lot of K-pop fans have heard of this amazing group filled with 13 amazing men. But, Not everyone has the time to get to know all the members...Especially a few of my friends so I thought it would be nice to introduce everyone each member. But first with the group:

-They are under Pledis Entertainment
-On April 19 2015, Pledis Entertainment began releasing teasers for Seventeen's first reality show Seventeen Project: Big Debut Plan on a major broadcasting channel, MBC Entertainment. The first episode premiered on May 2, 2015 and the show ended on May 26 with the live debut showcase.
-The thirteen-member group is separated into three different units with different areas of specialization: a hip-hop unit, a vocal unit and a performance unit. The group's members are deeply involved in the evolution of their discography, including the composition and production of their tracks and the development of their choreographies.
-Seventeen was originally a 5 membered boy group called “Tempest” that was set to debut in 2012 but the members were then moved to Seventeen. -On December 2012, Pledis Entertainment announced the release of “SEVENTEEN TV”, which is a pre-debut show that would help fans learn the names and faces of the members before their debut. After the airing of the first episode of ‘SEVENTEEN TV’, in January 2013, Pledis announced that the boys that appeared in the first episode were not the final members of the group but were instead all trainees still. The final members of the group will be selected based off fan responses towards each member.
13 members + 3 units + 1 team = 17 (Seventeen)
The 3 units are divided into Hip Hop, Vocal, Performance parts. Each unit promotes their song in Korea while another one promotes in another country. They have been busy working on their respective unit careers but they are still one.
