SEVENTEEN Earns Wide Recognition From Major Foreign Media Publication Including U.S. TIME Magazine
With combination of hard work and love for their craft, SEVENTEEN’s music transpires in the far-reaching scene, more so, being recognized by prominent media publications outside Korea.
SEVENTEEN’s “HOME;RUN” and “My My” have been receiving favorable reviews from U.S. TIME Magazine, U.K. magazine DAZED, and PAPER Magazine, even topping each list for the best K-pop songs of 2020.
Global sensation SEVENTEEN displays its global presence, as “HOME; RUN” — the title track of their special album Semicolon — ranked #39 on the British magazine DAZED’s list of “The 40 Best K-pop Songs of 2020”.
In addition, U.S. magazine PAPER selected the b-side track “My My” — from its seventh mini album Henggarae — for its list of “The 40 Best K-pop Songs of 2020”.
PAPER Magazine acknowledged, “SEVENTEEN succeeded in improving their sound while maintaining their new identity with “Left & Right” and “HOME;RUN”.
The American publication added, “Before the official album [Henggarae] release, the soft medium tempo “My My” was pre-released, giving a much deeper feeling. It perfectly expresses the group’s dual sensibility by creating a peaceful balance between staying in a familiar place and sailing to a new place.”
Furthermore, SEVENTEEN’s “HOME;RUN” also topped the list of U.S. Time magazine’s “The Songs and Albums That Defined K-Pop’s Monumental Year in 2020”.
The magazine giant noted in the article, “The majority of Broadway was closed in 2020, but SEVENTEEN brings us theater music in just three minutes with “HOME;RUN”. It invites listeners to revel in music and enjoy the stage — in line with the Semicolon‘s theme Let’s take a short break, we got a long journey ahead of us.
Meanwhile, SEVENTEEN will be appearing on CBS’ The Late Late Show with James Corden. The episode will air in early January next year.
