The title, 新世界, translates to New World while also playing off of the stage names of the three leaders, as analyzed by this Carat:

xīn (新) : S.coups (s x sound alike)

ji (界) : woozi (in chi his name is wū J)

新世界 = new world = scoups | hoshi | woozi?? pic.twitter.com/htexVAYsDL

S.Coups, the general leader of Seventeen, actually hinted at the Change Up theme during a VLIVE a month ago where performance unit leader Hoshi, vocal unit leader Woozi, and Seventeens producer Bumzu made appearances.

While Seventeen is split up into units specializing in vocals, performance, or hip hop, many of Seventeen’s members are multi-talented and strong in multiple areas – their leaders, especially.

S.Coups is part of the groups Hip Hop Team, meaning he specializes in rapping, but a little known fact is that he actually auditioned and got into Pledis Entertainment as a singer.

Woozi, the Vocal Team Leader, is also very skilled at rapping as seen in their predebut showcases. Maybe Rapper Woozi will make a comeback!

Hoshi, the Performance Team Leader, is the prince of multi-faceted surprises. His solo song Hurricane features him rapping and dancing, with the iconic line Kwon Fire, always f%#king higher!

Hoshis singing is no joke either just check out his powerful vocals on an impromptu cover of fellow bandmate DKs song A Piece of You.
