Earlier this year, Pledis Entertainment revealed that they are working on a seventeen-member boy group that would promote in three markets and they would debut this year…but that’s been pushed to next year now.
A Pledis Entertainment representative revealed on August 16th, “We haven’t confirmed all of the members of Seventeen (tentative name) yet. We’re still working to find a balance. The group will have 17 members in total, and about 50% of them have been cast.”
They continued, “We were planing on debuting them within this year, but plans have been delayed to next year.”
As for whether or not the group will have an admission and graduation concept like their seniors, After School…the answer is no. “The 17 members will be fixed, but we are considering unit promotions on the side.”
For more information on Seventeen you can check out the original announcement back in April here.
