Boygroup: GOT7

GOT7 is a boygroup formed by JYP Entertainment. Their debut was on january 2014 with the release of their first album “Got it?”. They got attention for their hiphop styled stage performances with a lot of b-boying and martial arts tricking. Being the first group since 2009 to debut under JYP. They announced their world tour recently and that they’re releasing another song!

The group consists of 7 members of which 3 entered JYP training through open auditions, 2 were scouted abroad and 1 came in through an opportunity at school. This last fellow I can’t find anything about but he had the shortest trainee time of them all with only 9 months.

Their EP rocketed after they preformed their song ‘Girls Girls Girls’ on the broadcasted “M Countdown” and soon after this they were signed with Sony Japan and started their Japanese Showcase.  Within the same year GOT7 released their second EP and in 2016 and 2017 they released a trilogy ‘Flight Log: Departure, Turbulence and Arrival’ and in October of 2017 they released their 7th EP ‘7 of 7’. in January they announced they’re going on a world tour.. Including EUROPE! So we’re siked!
