They say all good things come to an end. But all great things come back.

GOT7, the globally renowned South Korean act whose ride-or-die mantra cemented its legacy as a group like no other, has decided to make good on its promise and fly back to where they belong: home.

On its eighth year in the industry, the acclaimed seven-piece act officially staged its long-awaited revival with the release of its self-titled extended play (EP) today, paying homage to the group’s identity and journey as “seven or nothing.”

The mini-album “GOT7” consists of six tracks, all of which were written and produced by the members themselves. A whimsical, pastel-themed music video for title track “NANANA” also dropped, along with the EP.

GOT7 held a press conference today in Seoul, South Korea, where the members saw the title track’s music video for the first time and talked about their future as a group. The septet also held a Twitter Blueroom just before the EP’s release, giving life updates and answering questions from fans.

Just this weekend, GOT7 held a two-day fan concert titled “HOMECOMING WITH I GOT 7,” where the group performed some of its greatest hits and finally reunited with Ahgases (GOT7 fans), after a very long time.

The multi-awarded septet also revealed its official social media accounts earlier this month, launching its newest channels on Twitter, Instagram, Youtube and TikTok.

This series of events marks the newest chapter for the beloved septet, who chose to leave as a group and get a fresh start after the members’ seven-year contracts with their former label, JYP Entertainment, ended in January 2021.

Seven or never

Today’s comeback was a promise GOT7 made to its fans, and something they worked very hard to fulfill. When the group dropped the sentimental music video to “ENCORE” after taking flight from its previous agency, the members assured their fans that they would “keep that promise.”

Despite being currently signed to different companies and pursuing their solo careers, the members repeatedly clarified that they did not disband and maintained that they would come back as a group. Jinyoung, during the group’s Instagram Live on Jan. 16, reiterated this promise.

“Although we don’t know when we will be back again, we’ll be sure to come back with an album that our Ahgases will love,” he said in Korean.

Since then, the fandom had been on the trail for clues on the group’s comeback. Bambam’s various hints during his solo activities, Mark Tuan’s arrival to South Korea last March, and an exclusive report by a Korean news outlet all seemed to point at GOT7’s much-anticipated comeback.

On May 8, the septet officially confirmed its return by revealing an official teaser for its latest EP.

GOT7 also made history as it officially obtained all trademarks and rights from its previous agency, without losing a single member. Leader JAY B has been praised by fans for taking charge of the process and fighting for the group’s future.
