Calling all Carats! Can you believe that it’s been two whole years since these 13 beautiful boys debuted? Ever since we all slipped into the diamond life, it’s been a pastel-inspired, laughter-inducing, inescapable rollercoaster ride. And quite frankly, I don’t think any of us want to ever leave. Here’s to the all the happy memories with SEVENTEEN!
1. “Dino, whose baby are you??”
Literally any chance he gets, Jeonghan will torture Dino with this line, and will continue to do so until Dino reaches his thirties. I know they say a mother’s love is unconditional, but this is taking it to a whole new level.
2. Joshua’s epic freestyle raps
Although he may be in the vocal unit, it’s obvious that Joshua was born to be a rapper. But because nobody in the hip hop unit can match his flow or his rhymes, Pledis was forced to make Joshua a vocal for the sake of group cooperation. So until the day that his mixtape is released, Carats should watch this glorious video to tide themselves over.
3. How so many of the members have doppelgängers
Jun really resembles Super Junior’s Heechul, Suga of BTS could be Woozi’s father, The8 looks like a cousin of GOT7’s Bambam, Vernon might be the long lost nephew of Leonardo DiCaprio…need I go on? It’s like they were all cloned from the same lab or something.
4. Hoshi’s undying love for SHINee
Hoshi has been acknowledged by an idol who inspired him, something that any fan dreams of. This is proof that with enough hard work, your idols can be your rivals. Bless this interaction, and bless Hoshi’s adorable fanboy heart.
5. That iconic picture of Woozi with the guitar
Despite his…compact stature, Woozi is not to be messed with under any circumstances. Warning: his aura alone is enough to have men much taller than him cower in fear. See Exhibit A above, featuring a distressed Mingyu.
6. Vernon’s incredibly quotable one-liners
“Kidney function is not a right; it’s a privilege.”
7. Their high quality English
With two fluent English speakers in the group, it’s only natural that the other members might pick up a bit of the language. Watch as SEVENTEEN hilariously tries (and often fails) to put their English skills to the test. In all seriousness, they’ve shown a lot of improvement in their English since their debut, and I’m very proud of them.
8. Germy Mingyu
Mingyu’s sneezing has been chronic since his predebut years, yet he has shown no signs of recovery. Whether he’s sneezing into his hand or in the general direction of the other members, Carats couldn’t hold back their concern about Mingyu’s health. I hope he at least has hand sanitizer now…
9. Logos constantly covering Jun’s face
Please don’t let him be the idol version of Mike Wazowski. But since Jun has been getting more opportunities to shine in 2017, I’m inclined to let this one go.
10. Wonwoo’s impressive acting skills
Although Jun may be the child actor in SEVENTEEN, Wonwoo could easily make a name for himself in acting as well. He may seem quiet much of the time on broadcast, but the moments when he does speak are something to behold. Also, I would like to sign a petition for Wonwoo and Sohye to star in a drama together, please and thank you.
Happy second anniversary to SEVENTEEN! Make sure to show some love to the boys in the comments below!
