“We’re actually excited. We have been actually stunned,” Joshua mentioned of the album’s No. 4 debut on the all-genre Billboard 200 albums chart, their highest debut but. On what made the group resolve to take a mission they already had and repackage it, Hoshi chimed in, “We have been gearing up for our world tour then, and earlier than going into that, we wished to open up far more methods to point out much more various, newer sides of SEVENTEEN.”
Each Joshua and Hoshi then agreed that “_WORLD” was their favourite music video to movie, with Hoshi including, “It was my birthday, the day we shot the music video for “_WORLD.”
As for his or her just-wrapped tour, Hoshi shared that the stint was completely different than in years previous as a result of “that is our first tour [with a live audience] for the reason that pandemic, and concert events have at all times been necessary to us, however now we actually perceive the worth of reside exhibits higher than ever. So it’ll be a real reflection of who SEVENTEEN are, what our performances are like. We put loads of effort into presenting the perfect present of the 12 months.”
