Always and forever: GOT7 celebrates ninth anniversary
Always and forever.
Green hearts and well wishes took over social media as the globally revered South Korean group GOT7 celebrated its ninth anniversary on Monday, Jan. 16.
Ahgases, the group’s fans, filled the online realm with congratulatory and sentimental messages along with the hashtag #9YearsStillAliveWithGOT7.
GOT7 members also took to social media to celebrate their ninth year in the industry with their ride-or-die fandom.
BamBam, one of the group’s younger members, posted a short but sweet message to commemorate their milestone.
“I don’t know how many years it is now but if you guys [are] still with us then this will last forever,” he said in a tweet.

Meanwhile, leader JAY B and Choi Young-jae shared group photos on their Instagram Stories to join the celebration.
This month, the group also marked two years since its departure from its former label JYP Entertainment, a move that also paved the way for the members to pursue their individual careers while promising to stay as a group.
GOT7 debuted on Jan. 16, 2014, with the single “Girls, Girls, Girls” from its first extended play “Got It?”, which dropped four days later. The group’s 12th and latest musical production, the self-titled extended play “GOT7,” was released in May 2022.
