Read his full message below:
Hello. This is S.Coups, the general leader of SEVENTEEN and CARATs.
CARATs, the weather has gotten very cold. Are you guys keeping warm? I’m also working hard to meet CARATs again by resting and finding stability.
I’m writing this message today because I wanted to say something to the CARATs.
Ever since our debut to now, we have been receiving an overwhelming amount of love from CARATs, and the members have been wondering how we can return even a little bit of that love.
From now on, instead of the presents you send us, we plan on only accepting our CARATs’ beautiful and loving intensions to congratulate us. I hope our CARATs won’t be too disappointed. We feel your love more than enough through your kindness!
AS next year will be our 5th anniversary, we plan to continue working hard with our CARATs, so I hope you look forward to it.
Thank you always.
