K-pop boyband SEVENTEEN have teased their forthcoming mini-album ‘Your Choice’ with the release of a concept trailer.
The pastel-hued clip, which dropped yesterday (June 6), features the 13-member group on various floral-themed sets – many featuring phrases such as “you are my escape” and “we used to be friends” in the background – as they gaze into the camera. It then ends with the words: “I dream of love.”
The group had previously released an animated trailer for the mini-album, featuring various scenes from everyday life that showcase different facets of love. It includes scenes that showcase moments of youthful infatuation, unexpected encounters, living out one’s passion, lasting friendships and more.
Towards the end, the group also preview a snippet of an upcoming song, singing the lyrics: “Give me your love”. The trailer ends with an animated portrait of the group posing for a picture, referencing the video for their 2016 hit ‘Mansae’, and closes with the question, “Are you ready to ‘love’ together with us?”
SEVENTEEN will return with their brand-new mini-album ‘Your Choice’ later this month. According to a Weverse post from their agency Pledis Entertainment, the project will be released on June 18. More details are expected to be released in the coming weeks.
‘Your Choice’ will be SEVENTEEN’s first domestic release as a group since ‘Semicolon’, which dropped in October 2020. Earlier his month, South Korean media outlets reported that the group were working on the final touches of a new album, but at the time Pledis said that a comeback date had “not been decided”.
Last month, Pledis hinted that all 13 members of the group might release solo music in the future. Earlier this year, members Hoshi and The8 dropped solo songs ‘Spider’ and ‘Side By Side’ respectively.
In a glowing four-star review, NME called Hoshi’s ‘Spider’ a “captivating, sultry R&B tune – where he is credited as a lyricist, composer and choreographer – that seems to lay the groundwork for a potentially iconic future solo career”.
