#1 Seventeen: Working It
It was likely no easy task to debut a 13-member boy band—essentially the largest in K-pop today—but Seventeen proved that more really is more. The dudes released some of the catchiest boy-band gems this year, but more importantly, they were self-sufficient creators. For example, member Woozi wrote and produced their addictive debut single “Adore U,” while Hoshi created the choreography in the video. Furthermore, this band looks like they could be the next to find a strong following in the U.S. a la BIGBANG, EXO and BTS after their debut 17 Carat EP became this year’s longest-charting K-pop album stateside.
What’s Next?: The band needs to keep the momentum it has created high by remaining visible on the K-pop scene.
