Is Woozi of SEVENTEEN up to something (good)?
Something might be cooking in SEVENTEEN’s music studio, but is it what fans think it is?
SEVENTEEN’s member and producer, Woozi has been uploading pictures of his group’s albums from their debut to their recent ones.
The timeline of the albums started from the SEVENTEEN’s mini debut album, '17 Carat.' The captions only indicate the name of the album and track list with SEVENTEEN's debut song, ‘아낀다’ (also known as 'Adore U' in English) and their pre-debut song, 'Shining Diamond.' Its B-side tracks include 'Ah Yeah,' 'Jam Jam,' and '20.'
Two days later, Woozi uploaded the group’s second mini album, ‘Boys Be,’ with the same format as his first post: the name of the album and track list. The mini album includes songs such as, ‘표정관리’ (also known as ‘Fronting’ in English), its title track, ‘Mansae,’ ‘어른이 되면’ (also known as ‘When I Grow Up’ in English), ‘OMG’, and ‘ROCK.’
After that, Woozi has been posting album covers with the songs he wrote. The timeline continues from the single track, ‘Q&A,' 'Love&Letter,' 'Love&Letter Repackaged,' Ailee's album, 'A New Empire,' (producing two songs, 'Feelin' and 'Live Or Die'), 'Going Seventeen,' I.O.I.'s final comeback, 'Downpour,' 'Al1,' Bumzu and Han Don Geun's song, 'Forever Young,' NUEST W's 'W Here' (producing Baekho's song, 지금까지 행복했어요 or 'I Was Happy Until Now' in English), and 'Teen, Age.'
With Woozi constantly uploading pictures, fans are now anticipating more.
Fan theories are circulating over the internet, saying SEVENTEEN will be releasing a remastered version of their previous albums. However, after Woozi continuously posted pictures of albums, fans now theorize that the last post will likely be a comeback album. The third fan theory is that Woozi is flexing his producer skills to show how successful he was even before HYBE acquired Pledis Entertainment on May 25, 2020.
Since their debut, Woozi has been writing and producing SEVENTEEN’s songs, alongside singer, songwriter, and producer, Bumzu.
No news has been released from SEVENTEEN’s agency or by the group to confirm nor refute fan theories and speculations towards Woozi’s posts. Fans have yet to know what Woozi’s plan is or if SEVENTEEN is really planning a surprise comeback album.
