The group consists of 13 members: S.Coups, Jeonghan, Joshua, Jun, Hoshi, Wonwoo, Woozi, DK, Mingyu, The8, Seungkwan, Vernon, and Dino.
The group performs as one group, and the members are divided into three sub-units, each with a different area of specialization: 'Hip-Hop Unit', 'Vocal Unit', and 'Performance Unit'. Since its debut, Seventeen has released three studio albums and ten extended plays.
Seventeen is considered a "self-producing" idol group, with the members being actively involved in the songwriting, choreographing, and other aspects of their music and performances.
The name "Seventeen" is explained as "13 members + 3 units + 1 team", representing the 13 individual members from 3 different units (hip-hop, vocal, and performance) who all come together to form one group.
