Seventeen's performance team members are talented choreographers, having taken part in creating the choreography for many of their songs including "Mansae", "Adore U", and their most recent title track "Pretty U".

However, fans recently noticed that the performance team members' names, which used to be registered under the choreographer's copyright organization for several of their songs, have been taken away. 

According to fans' reports, Seventeen's "Mansae" and "Adore U", which used to be jointly registered under Seventeen's choreographer Choi Young Joon and member Hoshi (real name Kwon Soon Young), have now been switched over to individual creation. Seventeen's "Pretty U" only recently became registered under Choi Young Joon and Hoshi this May, while overall, only 5 songs are registered under Seventeen's name, including "Chuck", "Still Lonely", and songs for which Hoshi created the choreography for before debut. 

A Korean Carat, who phoned the choreographer's copyright organization regarding the matter, discovered that the changes were made by none other than Pledis Entertainment over several emails. 

As of now, Carat are demanding an explanation from the label. Do you think Pledis Entertainment really meant to add the Seventeen members' names under the copyright registration briefly for media play? 

Tip: Thanks to everyone who sent in the tip!

Ugh pledis should stop treating their artists like this, if it wasn't for seventeen and even nu'est this company would be dead, they actually need to learn not to run their idols into the dirt because there's not a big chance bringing a group back up when they're driven into the ground.

Basically pledis did with nu'est as well.

whatever101 Lele_xoxo_13 Friday, May 20, 2016

sorta since NUEST never had much success on the single charts. but the way ic it Pledis is gonna run SEVENTEEN down the same way they did After School

Lele_xoxo_13 whatever101 Sunday, May 22, 2016

Yes exactly like after school. But i think nu'est did pretty well with their debut song, and then they had a long ass hiatus and everyone forgot about them and the rest just came crashing down after that.

maomeh Lele_xoxo_13 Thursday, May 26, 2016

they didn't had long hiatus they had comebacks after comebacks ...

I can't read Korean....

THE TITLE IS SO MESSY. GUYS, JUST READ THE EXPLANATION ON THE PREVIOUS COMMENT. p/s : I can't wait for SEVENTEEN to be mega huge, make a lot of money and Woozi become the new CEO or just establish their own label one day. Pledis never learn from their mistakes *sigh*
