K-pop stage-breakers SEVENTEEN unveiled a music video trailer for “_WORLD,” the lead single from their repackage album SECTOR 17 set for release at 2:30 PM IST on July 18.
The trailer shows the 13 members’ arrival in an unknown place hit by a sandstorm, piquing curiosity in the full music video as the storm begins to clear up and a billboard sign that reads ‘WELCOME TO ‘_WORLD’’ is revealed. The second trailer is slated for release at 8:30 PM IST on July 15.
With three days left until the release, over 1.2 million copies of SECTOR 17 have been pre-ordered, while the music video for “CHEERS”—the group’s new unit track included in the album—has amassed over 14 million views in less than a week after being released ahead of the full album.
SEVENTEEN also unpacked a series of concept photos and a highlight medley video leading up to the album, gradually drawing listeners into the newfound world and a new beginning the act is marching into following their journey through Face the Sun.
Featuring 4 new tracks, SECTOR 17 is a repackage of the K-pop performance house’s 4th studio album Face the Sun released in May. SEVENTEEN reached a new milestone in K-pop history with Face the Sun, joining BTS as one of the only two K-pop artists to rack up over 2 million album sales in the first week of release.
