K-pop group Seventeen Drops unveil concept photos ahead of new Face the Sun album, announce world tour
K-pop scene-breakers Seventeen have released a 5-part concept photo series for their 4th studio album Face the Sun. Beginning with “Ep.1 Control,” the K-pop supergroup unveiled a series of thrilling photos that place the group amidst an overwhelming presence of “shadows” that represent their fears. ‘Ep. 2 Shadow’ depicted each of the 13 members locked in isolation by these shadows from within.
‘Ep. 3 Ray’ depicted the 13-piece act burning their shadows to ashes, followed by ‘Ep. 4 Path” where they begin a journey to “Face the Sun” and continue the path of the Sun. The latest set of concept photos, ‘Ep. 5 Pioneer,” revealed a charismatic image of the members as bikers, hinting at the valor with which they will lead the way forward.
Scheduled to arrive on May 27, Face the Sun has already racked up over 1.74 million pre-order sales in its first week, hitting a record high for the group. As the anticipation peaks, SEVENTEEN teased during their recent appearance on a Korean TV show that a track titled “HOT” will be leading the new album. The full tracklist will be released on May 17.
