Seventeen debuted on 26 May, 2015 under Pledis Entertainment. They originally had 17 members pre-debut but when they finally debuted 13 members remained. 13 members+3 units+1 team=17. Seventeen has 3 units: Hip hop, Vocal and Performance each with their own unit leaders.
Fandom: Carats (Their symbol is a diamond inspired by one of their first songs, Shining Diamond. The measure of carat increases the value of the diamond that is Seventeen. The more the Carats, the higher the value of Seventeen as they grow and prosper with time)
Colors: Rose quartz and Serenity

Inside Joke: Dino nugu aegi?
Jeonghan, the angelic prankster, started this himself,”Dino, nugu aegi?” (Dino, who’s baby are you?) Jeonghan says this will continue until Dino turns 30.

His Korean name is Jisoo and his Christian name is Joshua. He’s almost angelic and “holy” so Carats use Jisoos instead of Jesus at times when they joke about Joshua. He even encourages it and dressed up as a priest for Halloween. Boy is a good sport
During 17TV, Samuel was singing Pitbull’s Give Me Everything Tonight and there’s a line, “I might drink a little more than I should tonight”. Keeping up with his Jisoos image, Joshua went, “Drink water not alcohol” because Samuel was still a baby back then. (He’s still 15 so…yh)
