Fans are divided on the addition of SEVENTEEN to the app, wondering what will happen with the group and Pledis Entertainment.
It's Okay ❤ it will be fine. Majority of creative control is still within pledis abd svt unless they approve 😊. The major changes would be u guys getting weverse (which kinda sucks tbh but super fun) and weply. Also svt will move to Bh new building when it opens 🙂

Some don’t agree with the move to Weverse as they felt that the fan cafe was special to them.
But fancafe is precious for both Svt and Carats ..

Others are curious as to whether or not only SEVENTEEN will be making the move to the app or if other artists from Pledis will also join in.
Just Seventeen or all Pledis Ent. group???

This corporate briefing is open to the public and is an event where Big Hit goes over the past year’s achievements as well as the visions for the future of the company. Bang Shi Hyuk previously stated that he hoped to hold at least two of these briefings a year in order to communicate with the public about their goals for the future. The first briefing was held in August of 2019. Unfortunately, the briefing that was to be held on February 4 was canceled due to the Coronavirus issue. Instead, they have filmed the briefing and posted it online to the public.
Below is the 2020 Corporate Briefing video:
