Got7 (Hangul갓세븐; RRGatsebeun; stylized as GOT7) is a South Korean boy group formed by JYP Entertainment. The group is composed of seven members: JB, Mark, Jackson, Jinyoung, Youngjae, BamBam, and Yugyeom. Got7 debuted in January 2014 with the release of their first EP Got It?, which peaked at number two on the Gaon Album Chart and number one on Billboard's World Albums Chart. The group gained attention for their stage performances, which include elements of martial arts tricking.

In late 2014 Got7 signed with Sony Music Entertainment Japan and ventured into the Japanese market to release their debut Japanese-language single "Around the World". They returned to South Korea a month later to release their first full-length studio album Identify, topping the nation's charts. In 2015, Got7 released the EPs Just Right and Mad, which yielded their most commercially successful single, "Just Right". In 2016, they released their first full-length Japanese studio album, Moriagatteyo, debuting at number three on the Oricon Albums Chart. They then went on to release their fifth Korean EP Flight Log: Departure and their second full-length studio album Flight Log: Turbulence, both chart-toppers. In March 2017, they became the first JYP Entertainment boy group to achieve 100 million views on YouTube for a video, for "Just Right".

On March 13, 2017, Got7 released their sixth EP Flight Log: Arrival, featuring the single "Never Ever". The album is the third and final part of the group's Flight Log series, and became their highest selling album with more than 300.000 copies sold.

History[edit]

2009–2013: JJ Project and formation[edit]

In 2009, JB and Jinyoung were cast into JYP Entertainment after passing open auditions.[1] In 2010, Mark and BamBam were respectively scouted by JYP scouts in Los Angeles, USA and Bangkok, Thailand.[2] That same year, Yugyeom became a JYP trainee after he was offered an opportunity at his dance school.[2] In December, Jackson passed JYP's overseas audition in Hong Kong, but he did not start his training until the summer of 2011.[2]

JB and Jinyoung, then known by the stage name Junior, made their debut as actors in the 2012 television drama Dream High 2. In May, they debuted as the pop duo JJ Project with the single "Bounce".[3][4] The duo appeared again as actors for the 2013 drama, When a Man Falls in Love.[5]

Meanwhile, Mark, Jackson, BamBam and Yugyeom prepared for their debut together as a group. The quartet made their first television appearance on the fourth episode of Mnet's reality-survival program Who is Next: WIN, which aired on September 6, 2013.[6][7] The seventh and final member to join the group was Youngjae, who had only been a trainee for seven months.[8]

2014: Debut with Got It?, Got Love, Identify and Around the World[edit]

Got7 perform at M! Countdown

JYP Entertainment announced Got7 on January 1, 2014. They were JYP's first boy group since the debut of 2PM in 2008.[6][9] Got7 was described as a hip-hop group[10][11] that incorporates martial arts tricking and b-boying styles in their performances.[7][12] This style drew comparisons to their senior group, 2PM, who are well known for their acrobatic dance styles.[10][13][14] The group released their first EP, Got It?, on January 20, 2014. The album shot to #1 on Billboard's World Albums Chart[15] and was #2 on the Gaon Album Chart.[16] Got7 made their official music program debut on January 16, 2014, through Mnet's M Countdown, performing their debut single "Girls Girls Girls".[17] Shortly after their debut, the group signed a contract with Japan’s Sony Music Entertainment and launched a showcase in Japan in front of 9,000 fans.[18][19]

On June 23, Got7 released their second EP, Got Love, with its title song "A", which was written and produced by J.Y. Park.[20] For their new EP, the group opted to show a brighter and more colorful image than their martial arts and b-boy style choreography emphasized at debut.[11] In November 2014, the group released their first full-length album, Identify, as well as the music video for its title track, "Stop Stop It".[21] Identify topped Gaon's Weekly Album Sales Chart in its first week and "Stop Stop It" peaked at number four on Billboard's World Digital Songs chart.[22][23] In October, GOT7 held their first Japan Tour, "GOT7 1st Japan Tour 2014",[24] and made their Japanese debut on October 22 with their single Around the World. This included the hip-hop track "So Lucky", composed and written by 2PM's Jun. K.[25]

The drama tells the story of a girl who shares dreams, love and friendship with a group of mysterious boys and gathered close to 13 million hits in total.[28][29] The show received the "Best Drama Award", "Best Director Award" and "Rising Star Award" at the K-Web Fest in July.[30]

On June 10, 2015, the group released their second Japanese single "Love Train", which debuted at #4 on the Oricon Singles Chart. The single contains an "Love Train", the original Japanese song O.M.G. and the two tracks' instrumental renditions.[31] The group released their third EP, Just Right, on July 13, 2015.[32] The title track, "Just Right", peaked at #3 on Billboard's World Digital Songs chart, remaining in the top three for two consecutive weeks.[33]

Got7 released their third Japanese single "Laugh Laugh Laugh" with its B-side "Be My Girl" on September 23. It sold over 35,000 album copies in the first week of its release and made its debut at first place on the Oricon's singles chart.[34][35]

The group released their fourth EP, Mad, and the music video for its title track, "If You Do", on September 29.[36] They followed up this release with their first repackaged album, Mad: Winter Edition, on November 23, with the three additional tracks, "Confession Song", "Everyday" and "Farewell".[37]
