▶ Hereinafter, Q&A with SEVENTEEN.
Q. It’s been about 2 months since our 4th full-length album was released. I think you’ll feel different as it’s “SECTOR 17,” which contains SEVENTEEN’s new world, which we found after a hot journey to become like the sun.
A. S.Coups: Thank you so much for loving our 4th full-length album, so I wanted to fill it with better songs while preparing for the repackage album. Like the meaning of the album, we’re ready to run toward the top of the new album, so please look forward to it, pay attention, and love.
A. It’s nice to meet you so soon, and I’m very happy to sing a song like a gift to CARATs. It’s a short time, but we prepared a lot for the album, so please look forward to it.
A. I’m happy to meet CARATs again soon. The songs that I personally love are included in the repackage album, so please listen to them a lot.
A. Dokyeom: It feels like we’re starting anew with “SECTOR 17”, so it’s a new and good feeling. It’s an album that we worked hard on and filled with music that CARAT will like, so I’d appreciate it if you’d love it.
A. It’s the first time SEVENTEEN released a repackage album since their first full album “Love & Letter” 6 years ago, so I’m looking forward to it.

Q. What kind of album is “SECTOR 17”? Please introduce your charms of “SECTOR 17”.
A. S.Coups: In our 4th regular album, if you showed a hot and passionate side of SEVENTEEN, “SECTOR 17” is an album that shows a new side of us that we haven’t shown before. I think SEVENTEEN’s album itself is a charm.
A. Jeonghan: From the title song ‘_WORLD’ that makes you feel better the more you listen to it, to ‘Round and Round’ that warms your heart, I think it’s an album full of various charms.
A. Wonwoo: Each song in “SECTOR 17” has a different charm, so it’s an album full of fun to listen to.

A. THE8: It’s filled with love for CARATs. I think that’s the charm of this album.
A. Dokyeom: It’s like an album that opens up a new world. There are many stories that we’ve talked about so far, but I think it’s an album that contains SEVENTEEN’s new story.
A. ‘SECTOR 17′ contains music that only SEVENTEEN can show. It’s an album full of four new songs, including Leaders and SEVENTEEN’s refreshing song, “_WORLD,” SEVENTEEN’s ballad, “Round and Round,” and the Korean version of “Fallin’ Flower,” which CARATs wanted to hear so much.

Q. What was the most memorable episode while preparing for “SECTOR 17”?
A. S.Coups: On the day of the music video shoot, it rained a lot with thunder and lightning, so I was worried that I might not be able to do it before the shoot started, but strangely, it stopped raining in time. Whenever it rains, I think of CARATs first. I think I’m with CARATs on the day of the music video shoot.
A. There was a scene where we used firecrackers during the music video shoot for “_WORLD”. I remember being surprised because the firecrackers were louder than I thought.
A. I remember filming the music video for ‘_WORLD’ at the same time as preparing for the concert, but I felt grateful that the members prepared everything well, and the results were satisfactory and there were people with me.
A. I remember the leaders who came out after a long time. I worked hard to show our leaders who improved in “CHANGE UP”. I’m personally very satisfied with the song
A. MINGYU: We prepared a music video during the concert, and I remember watching the comeback teaser video after the concert. I got goosebumps from CARAT’s loud cheers.

Q. What do you want to focus on in the title song, “_WORLD”? When do you want to recommend “_WORLD” the most?
A. When SEVENTEEN goes on a world tour, please think about us and listen to “_WORLD”.
