SEVENTEEN is back with another banger but Carats need to wait to witness the group on music shows.

Additionally, SEVENTEEN's "Your Choice" also topped China's best-selling daily and weekly physical sales charts. Not only that, but SEVENTEEN also topped the daily album ranking of Japan's Oricon Chart with over 89,736 albums sold.
Pledis Entertainment's SEVENTEEN also topped South Korean music charts such as Genie, Melon, Bugs. "Your Choice" also charted number one in 18 regions worldwide.
Despite the huge success that "Your Choice" has seen, Carats need to wait to see SEVENTEEN perform "Ready to Love" on music shows.
On June 19, Pledis announced that SEVENTEEN would be postponing their promotional activities for their newly released mini-album. The postponement was announced after a HYBE staff member and an external staff member present on a June 15 recording with SEVENTEEN tested positive for coronavirus. SEVENTEEN along with all the staff members present on the shoot were considered close contacts of the confirmed cases, therefore, they were ordered by the disease prevention authorities to self-quarantine from June 19-29.
"On the evening of June 17, when the first confirmed case showed signs of symptoms, SEVENTEEN used self-testing kits to confirm they were negative for COVID-19. They underwent additional PCR testing as a pre-emptive measure and all received negative results on the morning of June 18. Currently, the artists have no symptoms such as fevers or difficulty breathing," Pledis Entertainment explained in an official statement.
Furthermore, Pledis Entertainment asked fans for understanding and assured fans that the rescheduled activities would be revealed once SEVENTEEN members finish their self-quarantine.
