SEVENTEEN is the newest artist to join Weverse.
Weverse is a global fan community platform launched by beNX, an entertainment platform company that is a subsidiary of Big Hit Entertainment. BTS, TXT, and GFRIEND previously launched communities on the application.
Big Hit Entertainment held a corporate briefing on February 5. At the event, co-CEO Lenzo Yoon shared that the company will collaborate with more artists from Korea and overseas who are not a part of the Big Hit Labels.
He stated, “For the first case of this, Pledis Entertainment group SEVENTEEN will be joining Weverse.”
Pledis Entertainment confirmed this with the following statement:
This is Pledis Entertainment.
We would like to make an announcement regarding the opening of SEVENTEEN’s Weverse service.
SEVENTEEN’s global fan community “SEVENTEEN Weverse” is scheduled to open in early 2020.
You will be able to closely communicate with SEVENTEEN and experience a variety of content via “SEVENTEEN Weverse.”
We will make further announcements in regards to the opening date and other details.
We send our gratitude to CARATs and appreciate your continued love and support toward SEVENTEEN.
Previously in January, it was reported that Big Hit Entertainment was in the process of acquiring Pledis Entertainment, to which Big Hit responded at the time, “Nothing has yet been decided.”
