SEVENTEEN’s participation adds to a long list of accomplishments for the PLEDIS Entertainment artists. They made K-pop history at last month’s VMAs by becoming the first K-pop act to win Push Performance of the Year. Around that time, they also dropped a collaboration version of their single “_WORLD” with British pop singer Anne-Marie. “_WORLD” is the lead track of their July album “SECTOR 17.” It is a repackage of their May album “FACE THE SUN,” which helped the group reach their highest peak yet at No. 4 on the Billboard 200. The 13-member act recently concluded the North American circuit of their “BE THE SUN” world tour. NextShark reviewed their Seattle concert and called them “nothing short of iridescent with a spectrum of a showman’s spark.”
