SEVENTEEN's Daily News
SEVENTEEN is a 17 membered boy group under Pledis Entertainment (home of After School, Park Kahi, Son Dambi, NU’EST, Hello Venus & Han Dong Geun). In July 2012, Pledis Entertainment announced that they would be debuting their 2nd and new boy group “Seventeen” in early 2013. Seventeen would consist of 17 members that would be split into 3 sub-units that would promote in Korea, Japan & China. 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. The group is set to debut in June 2013, debuting the korean unit of Seventeen first.
