Just six months into their idol career, SEVENTEEN is getting ready for their first domestic solo concert.
Newspim reported on November 4 that according to concert industry insiders, the 13-member group has launched preparations for their first-ever Korean concert to be held in December.
Although the venue will fit only up to 800 people, it is extremely rare for a rookie group to announce a solo concert within the first year after debut.
Pledis confirmed that preparations are underway, “Everything is still in the beginning stages, but we have been meeting up with the concert team. The venue, date, and other details have yet to be decided.”
Meanwhile, SEVENTEEN has actively promoted their second mini album “Boys Be” for the past two months. The release earned them both domestic and international recognition, topping Billboard‘s World Album Chart and Gaon’s Social Chart for two consecutive weeks. The rookie group was the only K-pop act to make Billboard’s annual “21 Under 21,” and they are also nominated for Best New Male Artist at the 2015 MAMA.
