it’s that time of year again! school will be starting for me in a couple of days (my last year of high school!!! ahhh scary ;-;) so unfortunately i won’t be able to update this blog as often as i would like to TT______TT i will probably come back when debut rolls around (which means i most likely won’t be gone for long haha) and i might stop by once in awhile when there are updates, but i thought i’d just warn all of you of my impending absence.
thank you so much for everything as always!
i don’t believe pledis will be adding more members after debut, or at least not immediately after debut. the group is pretty solid with 14 members and adding 3 more bodies would probably get hectic (especially considering the max amount pledis has put on stage so far has been 15). factoring in part distribution in songs, 17 members is admittedly impractical.
of course, we don’t have a clear cut idea on how pledis is going to promote seventeen (as a whole? as subunits?). it looks like they’re planning to let the group stay together as opposed to splitting them up, but pledis is known to be unpredictable, so we’ll just have to wait and see.
as for doyoon, i haven’t heard anything about him leaving pledis, but i wouldn’t really be surprised seeing as he most likely won’t be debuting with seventeen. since he dreamed of being an actor, maybe he moved to fantagio, the acting company that pledis collaborated with on hello venus?
like seventeen 1 (13.05.11) → like seventeen 2 (13.08.17) → like seventeen 3 (13.11.23) → like seventeen 4 (14.08.16)
i downloaded the video in hd when it was on the official youtube but for some weird reason they took it down :( fortunately, some lovely fellow fans who also downloaded the video before it was too late were kind enough to repost it! hopefully, pledis will get it back on the official channel soon, but for now, you can watch it here ^^
they did perform their original song(s) at the actual concert, but it wasn’t included in the highlight cuts, probably because they don’t want the song(s) to be leaked before debut
