Carats are having a meltdown, the cause: SEVENTEEN’s teaser photos

Carats everywhere are excited for the return of their favorite K-Pop boy group SEVENTEEN this October after all its members renewed their contracts with their agency PLEDIS Entertainment, and their most recent wins as ‘Artist of the Year’ and ‘World Best Performer’ in the 2021 The Fact Music Awards. Following their eight EP ‘Your Choice’ in their 2021 “Power of Love” project, the 13-member group will be releasing ‘Attacca’, their ninth EP on October 22, 2021 at 1 P.M. KST. 

Since September 27, 2021, SEVENTEEN has been uploading their scheduler, concept trailer, and teaser photos all over their social media accounts, which have made Carats all the more enthusiastic about their comeback. In fact, ‘Attacca’ is already on its way to becoming another huge feat for the boy group, with the album pre-orders already surpassing 1.41 million pre-orders one day after the pre-order period began. Meaning, SEVENTEEN and Carats are a powerful duo to beat. 

Anyway, on October 5, 2021 at 12 P.M. KST, SEVENTEEN shared the first set of their teaser photos on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, and boy, Carats were not ready. In their teasers, the SEVENTEEN members are seen in a homely vibe, each member varying in set and backdrop. 

While they did look cozy and snug at home, Carats could not resist fawning over each member’s visuals on social media (even while some apps were down for some reason). One member even reached Twitter’s trending topics (hello Vernon/Hansol). 

Carats are obviously not the Lord’s greatest soldiers, as they’ll keep getting blessed by SEVENTEEN in the following days. Fighting, Carats!

Oh, and stream SEVENTEEN’s ‘Ready to Love’ MV while waiting for October 22, 2021 here.
