SEVENTEEN

Seventeen is a South Korea boy group formed by PLEDIS Entertainment that debuted on May 26, 2015 with 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 playlists. The name of their fandom is Carat that has a valuable meaning like a grader. Carat’s own name is determined by their fans who previously used Wish, Tinkerbell and Same as options for their name but fans chose Carat as a fan name for SEVENTEEN in the hope that SEVENTEEN’s future would be more valuable and luminous. As Rihanna said, “shine bright like a diamond“.
