SEVENTEEN “Memories with fans all over the world…”It’s a meaningful award. It’s an honor
“It’s an honor to receive a meaningful award for a meaningful performance.”
The group Seventeen (S.Coups, Jeonghan, Joshua, Jun, Hoshi, Wonwoo, Woozi, The8, Mingyu, Dokyeom, Seungkwan, Vernon, and Dino) said at the 9th E-Daily Culture Awards held at the Sejong Center in Jongno-gu, Seoul on the 2nd.
SEVENTEEN became the winner of the grand prize trophy for their world tour “Be the Sun”. Since the opening of the tour at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on June 25-26, they have performed in 12 cities in North America and four Asian cities, including Jakarta, Bangkok, Manila, and Singapore. In November, the tour will continue at dome venues in three Japanese cities.
Seventeen, who was on the podium on this day, said, “It is an honor to receive such a meaningful award for “Be the Sun,” adding, “Be the Sun” is a very meaningful performance for us as it is the first tour in about two years and four months.” “Through this tour, I received positive energy while breathing with ‘Carats’ (fandom names) around the world, and I made unforgettable memories,” he said.
Seventeen, which gained the modifier “self-produced idol” by writing lyrics, composing, and creating choreography since its debut, opened the team’s second act with this tour performance in the 7th anniversary of its debut. The judges praised “Be the Sun” as the best work, saying that it showed the global ripple effect of K-pop and the outstanding workability of K-pop concerts with high-quality musicality, performance skills, and synergy produced by 13 members.
SEVENTEEN said, “As part of the world tour ‘Be the Sun’, I’m looking forward to and nervous about the Japanese dome tour I’ve been dreaming of. “We are preparing hard, so please look forward to it a lot.” They vowed, “We will always give warm memories and good energy to our fans and become supportive beings.”
