Seventeen is a South Korean Boy group formed from Pledis Entertainment in 2015. Even though the name of the boy group is Seventeen, there are only thirteen members. The reason of the name Seventeen is there are thirteen members, three sub-units and they are all one team, which adds up to seventeen. The three different sub-units they are separated into are the different areas that they specialize in. There is the 'hip hop unit, 'performance team unit' and the 'vocal team unit'.

The members of Seventeen are so involved in the composition and productions of their music and choreography that they have become known as the 'Self Producing Idol Group'. The song writer for Seventeen is Lee Jihoon, or Woozi. The dance choreographer in the group is Kwon Soonyoung, or Hoshi.
