Attacca comes just five months after Seventeen’s eighth EP Your Choice, which was released on June 18 via Pledis Entertainment. Your Choice earned Seventeen their first No. 1 effort on the Top Album Sales chart (which is also the third overall effort for a K-pop act), as the mini-album sold 20,500 copies in the U.S. in the week ending June 24, according to MRC Data — the act’s best sales week yet. Your Choice also arrived at No. 15 on the Billboard 200 all-genre albums tally, their first entry on the chart.
“We’re just extremely grateful. Like seeing that, we felt like [having our work] paid off is an understatement. And hopefully, we can reach out to more and more CARATs [Seventeen’s fandom name] with every comeback,” Vernon told Billboard in an interview.
