Seventeen is the 3rd most popular kpop group currently, but it is easy to forget it!

That is because they didn't have this huge jump in popularity, they never had that one song that got them big. They don't have that moment when their sales skyrocketed. Seventeen have been ever since debut slowly, but surely gaining more and more popularity with each comeback.

That silent growth has now made them the 2nd most popular kpop group and they are still getting more popular! My babies are amazing!

To celebrate this, have this utterly beautiful video of Seventeen's first win! This is in my opinion one of the most emotional 1st wins I have seen and I love it!

Honestly I didnt think they were apart of the big three, I thought they were alot smaller becuase of how low the views are on all the mvs compaired to BTS and EXO. But i have heard that the Carats are a weak fanbase so i guess that does explain it a bit more.

It's not that carats are a weak fanbase. It's because Carats are mostly Korean and Japanese, both of which for the most part don't use youtube + those 2 fandoms generally aren't obsessed with streaming!

Looking at physical sales and concert venues, Seventeen is a clear 3rd.

Ahhh i didnt know that. I looked at a few people talking about it and most said that Carats are a weak fanbase. I didnt know how little fans they had in the west. I did hear that their fanbase was huge in Japan though.

A korean album from Seventeen, An ode sold 150k in Japan...
Happy ending sold almost 270k copies in Japan

That is compared to BTS's Face Yourself selling about 330k in Japan and might I remind you, face Yourself is a full album, while Happy ending is a single. I would say there is an argument to be made about Seventeen being as popular, if not more popular than BTS in Japan.

Seventeen are one of the most popular kpop groups in Japan, to the point that their songs are being performed on Produce 101 Japan!

Thats amazing! im proud of the boys. Might need to do a bit more research if i didnt know this. I knew the fandom keeps growing each comeback but I didn't actually know how many of us there were.

haha "HOME" we love refrences

I already knew woozi would have a lot of money
1. he flexes on us on insta
2. how much music he produces/writes for other groups

I need someone that will keep me informed of all this :nekosweat:

He barely does that tho... He has Downpour, that one song for Fromis_9 and I think Baekho's solo song is by Woozi...
That should be it for non-SVT related Woozi tracks.
on fandom it says he has helped write:
ailee - feeln, live or die,
I.O.I - downpour,
Bumzu & han dong - forever young,
Bumzu - i dont miss you
Chanyeol - give me that
fromis_9 love - LOVE RUMPUMPUM


Which is still afew songs he would get money from plus the seventeen songs

I know he doesnt actually flex on us, its just that msot comments (that ive seen) under his posts of the items in his room people are jsut talking about him flexxing. i wouldnt even be mad if he did though, he works so hard for what ever he earns so he definitely deserves it.

OH yeah totally forgot about that thing he did with Yeollie!

Woozi is like the definition of a flex, especially bcs I don't think he is doing it on purpose! I still remember when he talked about how he doesn't buy his own clothes and has others do it for him...

But I need a Woozi solo album in my life... BECAUSE WHAT KIND OF FUTURE STUDIO VERSION NEEDS TO BE RELEASED!!! It's really unfair that we haven't been given it yet...

I really want a solo album from him but im afraid i would die from crying, being way to excited or a mixture of both.

I also want the mictapes to be on spotify, mainly "UN HAENG IL CHI", but thats probably not gonna happen.
Iknow we have like "Check-In" and many 1 or 2 more but i want to be able to listen to all of them without ads and be able to save them to my playlists.
