Following the K-pop group’s appearance on The Late Late Show, Harper’s BAZAAR gave CARATs a behind-the-scenes look at SEVENTEEN’s U.S. late-night TV debut.
The video showed the amount of work the Korean band put into filming the performance along with interviews with the individual members.
“It’s our first U.S. TV show debut so we’re very excited,” Vernon said at the start of the video.
The members were then seen filming the performance’s opening. The band is known for putting on show-stopping performances, and the behind-the-scenes video showed all the intricate details it took to make the performance look flawless.
“As you can see like on our t-shirts we’re the staff,” Joshua said as he showed off his t-shirt. “But later on as the song progresses we become K-pop idols, we become SEVENTEEN. But right now we’re playing as the staff.”
After changing into suits, Mingyu described his hopes for how the performance would turn out.
“It isn’t just the dance. I hope the cumulative product of our performance, the set, and the lighting will appear as a final seamless piece of work,” he said.
