K-pop group SEVENTEEN has reached a career-high with their latest repackaged album, SECTOR 17. The group debuted at No 4 on the Billboard 200 chart. The album marks SEVENTEEN’s fourth entry into the chart and the first to land in the Top 5. With this, the K-pop supergroup has now become the first Korean artist in 2022, with multiple top 10 albums on the Billboard 200. Their title song ‘_WORLD’ has been clocking in huge numbers as well.


Their repackaged album, SECTOR 17, tells the story of the idyllic new world the 13-piece act has reached, a place that is distinct to SEVENTEEN and compares to the highest peaks around the world. The lead single “_WORLD” explores a new world and invites the listeners to define their own ideal world without any limits. The music video for it is fun and peppy with imitable and groovy dance moves.

SECTOR 17 is a repackage of SEVENTEEN’s 4th studio album Face the Sun which brought the K-pop act their first top 10-charting album on the Billboard 200. Face the Sun also rendered SEVENTEEN the second artist, following BTS, in K-pop history to rack up over 2M sales in the first week of release.


In the meantime, SEVENTEEN recently received three nominations for the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards. They were nominated for Best New Artist, PUSH Performance of the Year and Best K-pop. The K-pop powerhouse act will soon kick off the North American leg of their world tour ‘SEVENTEEN WORLD TOUR [BE THE SUN].’ Starting with a show in Vancouver on August 10, shows in 12 cities are slated to follow throughout August and September.
