While being a member of SEVENTEEN’s hip-hop unit, VERNON also continues to venture outside of the group, shedding light to his flair as a solo artist. He collaborated with Charli XCX for a remix of “Beg For You” earlier this year in February, and was featured in Omega Sapien’s “Wrecker” in June.
The news was initially shared on December 15. An image was posted on SEVENTEEN’s official social media channels that day, revealing the release date and the title of the mixtape. VERNON is the third member of the 13-piece act to release a mixtape, following HOSHI’s Spider in April 2021 and WOOZI’s Ruby in January 2022.
SEVENTEEN recently brought some exciting immersive experiences that took place during the Japanese dome leg of their “BE THE SUN” world tour.
The attractions, dubbed “The City,” turned each stop on the tour into a “concert play park,” allowing fans to take part in different events in each location.
The tour began at the Kyocera Dome Osaka on November 19-20. In that first city, SEVENTEEN fans – known as Carats – took part in a digital stamp rally across 18 landmarks, including the HEP FIVE Ferris wheel, which was covered in SEVENTEEN graphics, from November 12. “Rapi:t” express trains were also wrapped in the band’s graphics starting October 27.
The next stop was Tokyo Dome on November 26-27, where a SEVENTEEN-themed light display was presented in collaboration with Tokyo Skytree. It was lit up in orange – the group’s theme color for the tour – and “Rose Quartz & Serenity,” their official color, every weekend from November 19 to December 4.
The tour concluded at Vantelin Dome Nagoya on December 3-4, where a light display was also part of the activities brightening up Sakae, alongside a photo exhibition about the tour.
