The group unveiled a teaser photo offering a first look into their upcoming mini-album. The teaser image interweaves still photos of a bed on a puddle of water, a reading lamp and a boxing ring, all tinted in muted shades of blue. 

“FML” will be released nine months after “Sector 17,” a repackaged version of Seventeen’s fourth studio album “Face the Sun,” which landed at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 chart. 

“Face the Sun” became the No. 1 best-selling album in South Korea in 2022 with 3.28 million copies sold. 

According to IFPI’s Global Album Sales chart released on March 28, “Face the Sun” and “Sector 17” were also the fifth and ninth best-selling albums globally in 2022.

Pre-order for “FML” will start on March 31. 

A few hours before mini-album release announcement, Seventeen also uploaded a cryptic post on their social media channels consisting of the title “Seventeen Street” and multiple emojis, piquing curiosity for projects to launch alongside the approaching comeback.
