On December 9 PST, the LA3C event coordinators held a ceremony in Los Angeles’s ‘Hammer Museum‘. At that event, Bang PD and boy band SEVENTEEN were awarded the “Building K- Culture Bridges: Culture Ambassador Awards“. They were recognized for their contribution to bridging the gap between Korea and the rest of Asia.

They were also awarded for the cultural exchanges between Asia and the United States through K-Pop music. Once again, proving the fact that “when it comes to music, language is never a boundation”.

Bang PD spoke about how many years ago, they were busy performing in stage shows and connecting with the audience. They did shows and live performances in various cities including Seoul, the United States, Canada, Japan, and Southeast Asia. He also told how they never sensed any discrepancy and felt united with the world through music regardless of culture or language.

The ‘Seventeen‘ members shared their happiness saying that they are happy and proud that the band ‘Seventeen’ played a role in expanding the horizon of erasing barriers between various cultures through their music.

‘Seventeen’  is a South Korean boy band under Pledis Entertainment. The group consists of 13 members and their name carries the unique concept of how 13 members divided into 3 different units come together as 1 group cohesively.  [13 members + 3 units + 1 group].
