SEVENTEEN’s Manager: Jeon Young-hwan Is Taking Care Of 13 Members
One of Seventeen’s managers appeared on MBC’s program “The Manager”. In this opportunity, he shared many interesting things about the members and his feeling about being the manager of a group with many members. During the event, Seventeen’s manager talked about the challenges he has in taking care of so many people at once. Because there are only three managers in charge of taking care of 13 members. “There are too many members, so not all of them can sit on the sofa,” Jeon Young-hwan said. “So we put down mats so the members can sit and rest.” Jeon Young-hwan revealed that Seventeen needed makeup artists from two different salons, because of having many members. “A total of 10 (makeup and hairdressers) came,” Jeon Young-hwan said. “And they come from two different salons. Because one salon can’t handle all 13 members.”
SEVENTEEN’s Manager’s Daily Schedule And Activities
Jeon Young-hwan as SEVENTEEN’s manager shared the difficulties he faced when going shopping for the members’ needs. Because they will flood it with various personal requests, ranging from toiletries to other household appliances. “When I go to the market (to shop for Seventeen’s needs), I buy everything in bulk and bring a big box,” he said. On the other hand, Seungkwan showed his concern, because he felt sorry for his managers who were working hard. He also explained that the manager’s job is quite difficult so a total of 15 different people have been managers of Seventeen since their debut. In fact, six months is the longest for a manager to work with them. “We always apologize to the manager, and it’s not easy to wake up in the morning,” Seungkwan said. “They go to bed at 1 AM and wake up at 5 AM and that happens almost every day of the week, so I’m worried about their health.” This has also become a public conversation because they feel sorry for the managers. Some even blamed Seventeen’s agency, Pledis Entertainment. “They are the group that makes the most money in Pledis, they should receive more support than this. There are only 3 managers for 13 members? This is difficult, both for the singer and the manager,” commented a netter.
SEVENTEEN’s Manager Shows Her Dedication In Fanmeeting
SEVENTEEN’s manager’s special treatment circulated on one of the South Korean online forums, where a netizen uploaded a gif-formatted image with the caption, “Look at this, Wanna One manager.” Sometime before, K-Pop fans were shocked by the unpleasant actions shown by the Wanna One manager during the fansigns event. Contrary to what Wanna One’s manager did, one of SEVENTEEN’s managers recently went viral because of his actions against Wonwoo. In the gif, Wonwoo who looks cool talking to a male fan while holding a rose is suddenly approached by a manager. The manager stood behind Wonwoo, took a rose, and put it to his mouth. This SEVENTEEN member reflexively bit the rose and caused laughter from S.Coups who was right beside him and the fans in front of him. Seeing this, many netizens praised the manager’s actions by commenting, “This is what managers should do, making their artists shine for fans, not like what Wanna One’s managers do”, “I think I became a fan of this manager”, and others.
SEVENTEEN’s Manager Thought Mingyu Was Missing
Not only was the story about SEVENTEEN’s manager and daily activities very hectic, but because there were too many members, Jeon Young-hwan even thought that Mingyu was missing. SEVENTEEN’s members are sleeping in the waiting room and as a manager, he has to put his work first. Jeon Young-hwan looked for Mingyu and was not found. However, SEVENTEEN’s Mingyu suddenly appeared out of nowhere and went to do his makeup.
This incident made fans who watched MBC “The Manager” laugh because of SEVENTEEN’s Mingyu’s behavior and at the same time appreciated Jeon Young-hwan who was very responsible.
