GOT7 is reaping the fruit of their labor and trust after continuing their career as a group.
GOT7 received emotional reactions from fans after the boy group members -- Jinyoung, Youngjae, Mark Tuan, Yugyeom, JB, BamBam, and Jackson – announced their departure from JYP Entertainment after seven years.
All members decided not to renew their contracts to sign with other companies. Still, they assured us that they would still be promoting as a whole group.
Over a year since they started their new journey, they opened up about their comeback and what they went through to safeguard the group.
GOT7 Went Through a Lot Before Making a Comeback
On Monday, GOT7 held a press conference to promote their new self-titled EP.
All members shared their thoughts about their return, saying it feels like a dream to come back as a whole group. It is worth noting that K-pop groups tend to disband or lose members for good once they decide not to renew their contracts.
But things are different for them.
According to Mark, they have been preparing since last year. Now that they finally dropped the project, he expressed his excitement after finally meeting Ahgase again.

Meanwhile, Jackson noted that among the members, their leader JAY B went through the hardest phases. But after all those trials, they got to work together again.
Jinyoung and Youngjae both mentioned their fans, saying that their return is their way to repay them for waiting for them.
BamBam and Yugyeom added that they are grateful that GOT7 remains as a seven-membered group despite leaving JYP Entertainment.
