With his bright and energetic personality, SEVENTEEN‘s Mingyu overflows with love for his members. In a recent interview with WATCHA, the members unanimously agreed that Mingyu was the critical player pushing for SEVENTEEN’s contract renewal.
Who was the member who pushed the contact renewal.

MG: i thought its something we shoud do asap cuz i thought it was obvious to stay svt so i bought it up a lot.

While the members all wanted to renew as a group, talking about such an important and heavy decision was hard to bring up. However, Mingyu actively pursued the conversation, speaking of it positively and leading the other members to open up and discuss with each other what their future goals were.
I wanted to talk about it ASAP so I brought it up a lot. Although it seems like a heavy topic, I felt like ‘We’ll keep doing what we have been doing, it’s just a new start to it.’ That’s what I thought most. ‘Isn’t it obvious we’ll be together no matter what?’
they for sure all had the same mindset to renew it’s just that as woozi said, it’s hard to talk about important things like money & contract renewal w/ friends who you laugh & spend the most time with, so they needed someone like mingyu who unabashedly talks about it haha cute

His careful attention to each member is recognized by his fellow bandmates, who appreciate the strength he gives SEVENTEEN through his optimistic and kind nature.
seungcheol talked about how he previously took a hiatus due to anxiety, and he mentioned mingyu was the first member to notice what he was going through onstage 🙁
he also said all the members gave him a lot of support, which gave him the strength to endure it 🖤

So when the time came for SEVENTEEN to discuss contract renewals with their company, they made sure to go all together as 13, showing that their feelings were united in continuing down the path together.
svt all went together as 13 for the contract renewal meeting instead of 1 by 1.
SK: we thought if we are going to do this , we'll do it together.
DK: we didn't want our feelings be divided
