SEVENTEEN may not be blood related, but their bond is stronger than many families.
In a past interview with Weverse Magazine, Jeonghan‘s close relationship with his members was brought up.
It seems the members hold a special place in your heart. It feels like you can’t just say they’re people you work with anymore.

Jeonghan’s next words were the sweetest! He revealed that there was never a time when he thought the group had a business relationship.
I never thought of SEVENTEEN as a business, not even once.
Although he recognizes that they aren’t a family in the strictest sense of the word, he knows without a shadow of a doubt that they’re not just workmates. Rather, they’re members with a bond so strong that he’s sure it will last a lifetime.
I think SEVENTEEN is SEVENTEEN. It’s not exactly a family, but it’s not a business, either. We’re just group members, but—members with a strong bond? Like a lifelong members’ club.
He ended by sharing that they are always there for each other, and he knows that they will always have his back no matter what might happen.
With SEVENTEEN, it feels like we’re always there for one another. And I think the other members will always be there for me.
