You Made My Dawn
Seventeen released their sixth mini album on January 25 2019 which includes six tracks.
- Good to Me
- Home (title)
- Hug (포옹)
- Chilli (칠리)
- Getting Closer (숨이 차)
What does it Mean?
In an interview with Billboard in December 2018, the group was asked
What’s the meaning behind You Made My Dawn?
Joshua: The theme behind the album is the message of, “You made my darkness into dawn.” So basically, you know how dawn is between night and day? The sun comes in to make the night a little brighter and it progresses into day, right? That’s why we tried to compare the flow of emotions to the sun, and connect this album to the previous album You Make My Day.
How is this album related to You Make My Day?
Vernon: If you think of a story, [Dawn] should be like the prequel of You Make My Day. We want to give listeners a comfortable feel. You Make My Day was released in the summer, and this album’s going to be released in winter so obviously we want to match the seasons. Especially for this album, we tried to show more of our maturity. Just by listening to the sound and lyrics you can tell the difference from our previous albums with this album.
You released the song “Getting Closer” before the album’s release, and it’s quite different from “Home” stylistically. Why did the album’s release highlight these two songs in particular?
Joshua: Before this album came out we released “Getting Closer,” and the message we were trying to send was the condition one feels in the absence of love. “Home,” our title track, expresses the emotions felt when you’re in the presence of someone you love.

The album reached No. 4 on Billboard’s World Album Chart in its first week, and earning one million on-demand US streams in the first week.
You Made my Dawn hit Heatseekers Albums Chart at number 13.
“Getting Closer” was the first of the tracks to be published on December 20 2018 as a teaser for the new album. This track did slightly better than the album’s title “Home”
To date, Seventeen’s most popular song was “Very Nice” which reached number 2 in 2016.
Their new release promises to keep them in the top ten.

The title track “Home” as well as “Good to Me” were composed by members Woozi, Bumzu and Seungkwan
You may already have seen that music video, but here’s an unofficial version of the song i’ll be you haven’t!
While I enjoyed the proper MV, this version featuring the guys in their pajamas is absolutely ADORABLE!!!!
Dancing with headbands, furry ears, sleep masks and sharing a toothbrush, these boys are just too cute.
Watch till the end- their snuggles should not be missed ❤
It been overlooked- but it really shouldn’t be!
So in love with Seventeen
Seventeen continues to pursue EDM style in their songs such as “Home”. When asked “Why does this style suit Seventeen so much?” during a Billboard interview, the group answered:
Joshua: EDM is very suited for performances and dancing, so that’s why I think it suits us well. I think for every genre we try to make it into our own style.
Vernon: There are so many types of EDM, like songs that make you want to jump and get you all excited. But “Home” isn’t that kind of EDM, it’s like more comfortable to listen to.
Joshua: It’s mellow.
Vernon: We came up and practiced a performance that matches the song’s mellow mood. Yeah, we’re very satisfied with it.
Joshua: There’s a lyric that’s like, “We’ll be your home, and you’re our home. We’ll be your comfort, we’ll be the place you can cry alone, or the place you can love alone.” The place where you don’t have to care about what other people will think or say.
Vernon: Yea, it has a healing message, the song.
