Why is he name after a number?
Aaah, that’s a question which is given by everyone when they know or read his stage name. Before his debut, his company has thought about the possible stage name (from letters to numbers, including 7) that would be suitable for Choi Dong Wook. While eating a restaurant with YG, they noticed there were 7 pieces of radish kimchi on his plate. So, they confirmed Se7en’s name from that.
The number 7 is also considered as a lucky number in Korea. Se7en wants to spread luck through his music with everyone. He also believes his fans give him luck, so that’s why his fanclub is named Lucky Se7en.
