‘Keep playing without stopping to the next movement. (Attacca)’ Idol group Seventeen, who successfully entered the US Billboard last year, continues to run towards the top of the world with their ninth mini-album ‘Attaca’.

“With our previous work, we were honored to reach #15 on the ‘Billboard 200’. This time, I want to top the Billboard 200.” (Seungkwan)

At a global press conference held online on the 21st, SEVENTEEN members revealed their ambitions for #1 on the Billboard charts. Member Vernon said, “In our practice room, the members said, ‘Dream big. “Even if it breaks, the pieces are big,” he said.

It seems that SEVENTEEN’s dream is gradually coming true. SEVENTEEN’s comeback show that was held on this day attracted 150,000 fans around the world. Pre-orders at home and abroad recorded 1.41 million copies in just one day of pre-order, and over 550,000 copies in three days after the album was released, heralding the fifth consecutive million seller. On the Oricon chart in Japan, right after its release, it maintained its top position, and on the iTunes album chart, it recorded the top 10 in 31 regions.

Previously, Seventeen’s 8th mini album ‘Your Choice’ recorded 4 million sellers in a row and at the same time, ranked 15th on the US Billboard main chart ‘Billboard 200’. With this album, the album sold 1.36 million copies in the first week of its release, setting a new record.

Leader S.Coups said, “I don’t think we can’t help but expect good results.” “If we work hard and the fans listen to us a lot, I think we will get good results.” “It gives me the strength to prepare harder for my next album.”

The title song ‘Rock with you’ is a rock-based song that combines intense synth sounds, guitar sounds, and two-step rhythms as if running. It is equipped with SEVENTEEN’s deep emotional lines of love, energetic melodies, and passionate performances. In the choreography, the figure of running without a break to the refreshing and fast-paced music was melted into the choreography.

Regarding the title song, Hoshi said, “I expressed an enterprising and active feeling of love. It means that we are all loved by someone.” Dino proudly said, “The composition, direction, and texture are so perfect that we also practiced with the greatest confidence while practicing.”

The album contains a total of 7 songs, including ‘Rock With You’, ‘Swirling’, ‘Crush’, ‘Pang!’, ‘Everyday I’m Happy Because It’s You’, and ‘Things I Miss You’. Also included is an English song ‘2 MINUS 1’ aimed at overseas fans. Vernon and Joshua, who participated in composing and writing the lyrics for this song, said, “This is the first time we have recorded an English song for fans around the world. I thought it would fit well,” he explained.

What is the secret to SEVENTEEN’s great love? Jeonghan said, “I feel attracted to Seventeen’s music and performance and feel the energy of the 13 of us. Please support us like this, and we continue to grow through your support.”

Vernon also said, “Everyone has a lot of sincerity and affection for the team. It seems to appeal to them a lot.”

In July, all 13 members of SEVENTEEN showed off their strong teamwork by renewing their contract with their current agency, Pledis Entertainment. This is the reason why ‘Ataka’, which was created based on this, is solid.

Hoshi said, “This early renewal of our contract became a growth process for Seventeen to mature one step further as an adult, and there was a turning point as a team. I will repay you,” he said.

However, Chinese members Jun and The8 were excluded from this album’s activities as they focused on local activities until December. Seungkwan said, “Since the 13 members have been working together since their debut, I feel the vacancy between the two members and it’s a pity.” We are in frequent contact, and the members are supporting each other.”

SEVENTEEN is accelerating their activities to advance into North America at the same time as this comeback. On the 22nd, he performed ‘Rock With You’ on the famous American music program ‘MTV Fresh Out Live’. This year, SEVENTEEN started with the famous American program ‘The James Corden Show’, ‘The Kelly Clarkson Show’, ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’, and the US signature talk show ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ He is actively promoting his face in the local area by appearing in others.
