Seventeen is considered a self-producing idol group, with the members actively involved in songwriting and choreographing, as well as many aspects of their music and performances. They perform as one group and are divided into three units—hip-hop, vocal, and performance—each with a different area of specialization. They have been labeled Performance Kings, Theater Kids of K-Pop, and K-Pop Performance Powerhouse by various domestic and international media outlets.
