Learn Korean: Ready to Love

Ready to Love is the title track in SEVENTEEN’s 8th mini album ‘Your Choice’ released on June 18, 2021.

In the early days of our debut, we used a lot of splashy and honest expressions that were suitable for our age, but now, even if I try to speak honestly, I’m likely to say something refined. “Ready to love” sounds heavy, but it’ll get your heart pounding like a drum in excitement. This is a song about love, so I wanted it to be about the present, not try to make it sound young and innocent or grown up and mature.”
