GOT7 - Biography, Profile, Facts, and Career

GOT7 is a K-POP boy group formed by JYP Entertainment but is now under Warner Music Korea. They consist of 7 members: JAY B, Mark, Jackson, Jinyoung, Youngjae, Bambam, Yugyeom.

The name GOT7 took inspiration from the iconic first generation group g.o.d. At first, it was going to be called GOT6 for having six mixed-gender members.

In the end, they are named GOT7 for the seven members. With lucky number seven in it, GOT7 holds the meaning: seven lucky people come together.


In 2014, JYP Entertainment announced a new group called GOT7. This would be the newest boy group since debuting 2PM back in 2008.

The group consists of Mark, Jay B, Jackson, Youngjae, Jinyoung, Yugyeom, and BamBam.

The group released debut EP Got It? on January 2014. It was released along with the single Girls Girls Girls. The album managed to top the Billboard World Albums Chart and get to number 2 on Gaon Music Chart.

GOT7 quickly rose to fame thanks to their unique performance. They combined their dancing with b-boy tricks and some acrobatics movement. They also put in martial arts tricking into their move.

Following their successful debut, GOT7 went on to release their first studio album in November 2014.

The album titled Identify managed to debut at number 1 on Gaon’s Weekly Album Sales Chart. The title track Stop Stop It also charted at number 4 on Billboard’s World Digital Song Chart.

Not long after their debut, GOT7 also signed with Sony Music Entertainment Japan to target the Japanese market. They released their debut Japanese single Around the World in October 2014.

This release was followed by a full Japanese album Moriagatteyo in 2016. The album contains 12 original Japanese songs and 4 Japanese versions of their Korean songs, including Girls Girls Girls. Moriagatteyo performed quite well on the chart, peaking at number 2 on Oricon Album Chart.

In 2021, all seven members of GOT7 decided not to renew their expired contracts with JYP Entertainment.

Each member ended up in a different agency. Despite that, they still released a song together as a group. The single Encore was released in February 2021.

Ever since departing from JYP, leader JAY B learned the laws of copyright and trademark so they can continue promoting as GOT7 even if they are not under the same agency.

At last, all members of GOT7 acquired trademark rights to their name and their music.

GOT7 then surprised fans by making a full comeback in May 2022 with the album GOT7, with the title track NANANA.

They also had a fan concert in Seoul for two days “Homecoming with I GOT 7“, in May 21 and May 22.
