Seventeen re-released their "Teen, Age" album as their first special album, titled "Director's Cut" on February 5, 2018. The album featured the title track, Thanks.

The song was already pre-recorded and was kept for a while before it was released to the public, meaning that D.ARA's lines were still within the song. The song was originally a gift for Carats, but since Araceli left the group a month prior to the release of the album, Seventeen (and Carats) decided to direct the song not just towards Carats, but towards Seventeen's forever mom, D.ARA. Ultimately, D.ARA's lines were cut from the song before its release, however two of her lines were kept with her voice (which were replaced by the other members during lives since she was not promoting with them anymore).

Ironically, Thanks later peaked at No. 1 on MelOn, their first No.1 on MelOn. D.ARA's wish was to have a Seventeen song be No.1 on the MelOn charts.

Music Video

The music video was simple, with the members of Seventeen in different scenes within a building as they sing (and dance) about being thankful for Carats and D.ARA.

Fans pointed out that in the music video, there are several small things that represent their former female member. For instance, The8 was wearing a stripped shirt that fans recognized as the one D.ARA had bought him previously for his birthday, as well as Vernon wearing a necklace that was previously D.ARA's, but gave to him. In the scene where all the members are sitting together in a dressing rooms, there was an empty chair that stood in between Dino and DK.
