Seventeen: The Boy Group whose 13 Members Have Different Backgrounds and Families
Seventeen (or stylized as SVT) is a Pledis Entertainment’s boy group consisting of 13 members. Each member has their own habits and personalities. They also have their own families, which usually consist of the members’ parents and their siblings.
So, do you want to know more about SVT’s members’ families? In this article, Channel-K will take you deeper into the members’ personal life, including their parents and their siblings.
List of Seventeen’s Family Members
Here’s the table of family members of SVT.
|Seventeen’s Members||Family Members|
|S. Coups||Parents and an older brother|
|Jeonghan||Parents and a younger sister|
|Jun||Parents and a younger brother|
|Hoshi||Parents and an older sister|

|DK||Parents and an older sister|
|Mingyu||Parents and a younger sister|
|Seungkwan||Parents and two older sisters|
|Vernon||Parents and a younger sister|

From the table, we know that half of them have younger siblings. The SVT members have more sisters than brothers. There are three SVT members who are the only children in their families, and there is only one member who has more than one sibling.
S. Coups’ Family Members
The SVT leader has a family consisting of parents and an older brother. All of them live in Daegu, South Korea, 237 km away from Seoul. S. Coups has an older brother named Choi Seung-min, and the age difference between the two of them is two years. We don’t know much about his brother, though.
Jeonghan’s Family Members
Jeonghan is one of a couple SVT members who have parents and a younger sister. The sister’s name isn’t clearly mentioned, but she is four years younger than Jeonghan. The interesting thing about Jeonghan’s sister is Jeonghan doesn’t allow all of his SVT members to date his sister. His sister also likes to give some cute handmade accessories specially to Jeonghan to support his SVT comebacks.

Jun’s Family Members
Wen Jun-hui spent most of his childhood in Shenzhen, Guangdong, China. He lived there with his parents and a younger brother. Junhui and his younger brother Wen Feng-jun (known as Yangyang) have a 10-year age difference. Below are photos of Junhui’s family.
Hoshi’s Family Members
Kwon Soon-young was born and raised in Namyangju, South Korea. In that city, Hoshi lived with his parents and an older sister. Hoshi and his older sister are friends at the same age, as their age gap is only one year.
Wonwoo’s Family Members
Jeon Won-woo is the second SVT member to have a younger brother, the same as Jun. His name is Jeon Bo-hyuk, and he’s two years younger than Wonwoo. Bohyuk once worked as a fashion model, and many Carats (SVT’ fans) said that Bohyuk has a very good visual, just like his older brother.
The siblings live with their parents, who probably have good visuals too, in Changwon, Gyeongsangnam-do, South Korea.
Woozi’s Family Members
Woozi is the second SVT member who is the only child in his family. He was born, raised, and lived with his parents in Busan, South Korea.
DK’s Family Members
DK, or Dokyeom was born in Mapo-gu, Seoul, but he grew up outside of Seoul, namely in Yongin City, Gyeonggi. He lived in Gyeonggi with his parents and an older sister. The sister was born in 1994, three years older than DK. DK is a part of SVT’s sub-unit BSS, and when DK’s sister got married, the BSS members attended the wedding party. The sister’s name is still unknown, but it seems the BSS members (including DK) are close to DK’s sister. DK often involves his sister when he plays games with other SVT members.

DK’s parents once had very contrasting opinions about him pursuing a singing career. His father disagreed with DK’s decision to pursue a career in the entertainment industry. On the other hand, DK’s mother really strongly supports him to pursue a singing career.
Mingyu’s Family Members
Kim Ming-yu is the second SVT member to have a younger sister like Jeonghan. Her name is Kim Min-seo, and she’s four years younger than Mingyu. Minseo also has a very beautiful face, just like her handsome older brother. Mingyu and Minseo, along with their parents, lived in Anyang City, Gyeonggi.

The 8’s Family Members
Xu Ming-hao is the last SVT members who is an only child in his family. Minghao was born in Anshan, Liaoning, China, and he and his parents lived in Haicheng, Liaoning, before moving to Seoul.
Seungkwan’s Family Members
Boo Seung-kwan is the only SVT members who has two siblings. Seungkwan’s family consists of father Boo Jin-young, mother Jwa Kye-hwa, and two older sisters. He was born in Busan, South Korea, but after he was born, the Boo family moved to Jeju Island.
The first daughter of the family is named Boo Jin-seol, and she was born in 1989. The second daughter, Boo So-jeong, was born in 1993. From these birth years, we can see that Seungkwan and his two sisters have big age differences, which is about nine years (Seungkwan and Jinseol) and five years (Seungkwan and Sojeong).
Jinseol is virtually active in Instagram. She sometimes uploaded her togetherness with Sojeong, Seungkwan, and their parents. Here are some of her posts.
The second sister Sojeong is also working as a singer, the same as Seungkwan. Sojeong once released her self-produced song.

Vernon’s Family Members
Hansol Vernon Chwe has a younger sister, same with Jeonghan and Mingyu. The sister’s name is Sofia Chwe, and she’s six years younger than Vernon. Both of them are New Yorkers, and they both live in Manhattan with their Korean father and their French-American mother. She looks so beautiful, though.
Sofia Chwe is one of the most popular SVT members’ siblings. Her popularity is increased due to her various contents on her YouTube channel. It seems that beauty genetics run in the Chwe family successfully!
Dino’s Family Members
Similar to Jun and Wonwoo, Dino is the last member to have a younger brother. His name is Lee Geon or commonly called as Junggeon, and they both grew up in Iksan City, North Jeolla, South Korea. Lee Geon is two years younger than Lee Chan.
That’s all you need to know about Seventeen’s family members. So, what do you think about the members’ parents and siblings? Do you think that the siblings can be as popular as their SVT siblings?
