With complex choreography and energetic performances, k-pop group SEVENTEEN certainly needs to fuel up after a concert. And after their Toronto show, it looks like some members had a craving for none other than poutine.

The 13-member group has been performing across the US and was in town for their September 3 concert at Scotiabank Arena as part of their Be the Sun tour.

After their show, member Hoshi posted a photo on Instagram Stories of some members having dinner together.

Wonwoo, Jeonghan, DK, Woozi, Mingyu, Minghao, Joshua, and Hoshi can be seen sitting on the floor and posing for a selfie. On the menu: Korean takeout, including corndogs and what appears to be several boxes of poutine from Smoke’s Poutinerie.


Eagle-eyed fans immediately recognized the familiar red and black plaid packaging. And after several comments suggesting that the members try poutine while in Canada, fans were delighted to see their favourite idols enjoying the popular dish.

A Smoke’s Poutinerie representative confirmed that the “plaid-fied poutine box in hand” is definitely theirs.

The members seemed to embrace the local food scene after posting photos of Canadian favourites like Tim Hortons’ iced capp and Lay’s ketchup chips.

In addition to enjoying an iced cap, member DK was only too happy to show off his Blue Jays Hyun-jin Ryu jersey which he wore around the city and at the end of their concert.

Last month, the group had fans in a a tizzy when members Mingyu and Hoshi posted photos of themselves exploring Vancouver sans shirts.

SEVENTEEN’s final stop in their North American tour is in Newark, New Jersey where they’re scheduled to perform on September 6.
