In group of this size, showcasing individual skills becomes challenging, as most three-to-four-minute songs are divided among 13 members. SEVENTEENs sub-group system helps solve this problem. The hip-hop unit, vocal unit and performance unit specialize in rapping, singing and dancing, respectively. On most albums since 2015, members record songs in these units in addition to recording as a whole group. Different combinations of artists are regularly form, including Leaders unit featuring leaders of three sub-groupsand special unit BSS, consisting of comedic trio Seungkwan, DK and Hoshi.
