It’s been four years since our last Weekly Idol about SEVENTEEN and boy, has this group been busy!
The 13-member boy-group is divided into three sub-units, each with a different area of specialization.
The Performance Team, comprised of members Jun, Dino, The8 and Performance Team Leader Hoshi, are known for their razor sharp choreography and are actively involved in choreographing SVT’s performances.
The Hip Hop team includes Vernon, Mingyu, Wonwoo and Hip Hop Team Leader S.Coups are active in lyric-writing within the group, adding their own flair to SVT’s signature sound.
Last but not the least, the Vocal Team is led by the group’s producer Woozi alongside Jeonghan, Seungkwan, DK and Joshua.
SVT is known as a “self-producing” idol group, with the members actively participating in the songwriting, choreographing and other aspects of their music.
They are also well regarded due to their remixes, covers and arrangements of other artists’ songs.See below for their arrangement of the legendary Uhm Jung Hwa’s songs, featuring Jeonghan’s iconic part.)
