Ticketmaster 10: K-Pop Stars GOT7

It’s going to be a big, busy summer for South Korean boy band GOT7.

The seven-member group — singers JB, Jinyoung, Jackson, BamBam, Youngjae, Yugyeom and Mark — are set to kickoff their Keep Spinning World Tour on June 27, just after becoming the first-ever K-pop group to appear in-studio on NBC’s Today show on June 26. Before they officially hit the road, though, the boys took a few minutes to answer personal questions about their favorite songs and dream collaborations — and give a little life advice — as part of our Ticketmaster 10 interview series.

Read the complete Q&A below, and buy tickets now to see GOT7 in a city near you this summer.

Jinyoung: Chris Brown

Youngjae: Park Hyoshin

BamBam: I have more memories on the stage than off the stage.

Yugyeom: I also have more memories on the stage rather than attending a show.


3. Describe your performance style in one word.

JB: Variety

Mark: Effort

Jackson: Wang

Jinyoung: Can’t define in one word.

Youngjae: JYP


Yugyeom: ALL


4. If you could have dinner with anyone, who would it be?

JB: Scarlett Johansson

Yugyeom: Avengers, because they’re cool. It will be a big party.

Jinyoung: My family

Youngjae: Bruno Mars

BamBam: Post Malone



5. Fill in the blank: I would get nervous if I knew _______ was in the audience watching me.

JB: No one. There’s no one that would make me nervous.

Youngjae: J.Y. Park

BamBam: Kendall Jenner

Yugyeom: No one! There’s no one that would make me nervous.



6. What’s the first lyric you wrote that you were really proud of, and why?

JB: The lyrics of “PAGE.” I loved how well it was written overall.

Mark: The lyrics of “OMW”: “Life is like a long, dark tunnel when it’s low / Let’s say it’s another beautiful night.” I like it because it has positivity inside – saying that even your darkest, hardest moments are nonetheless beautiful moments.

Jackson: “I’m the ’90s generation of China.” It really shows what I am.

Jinyoung: “My face is getting red even though I’m not having a fever.” (열이 나는 것도 아닌데 얼굴이 빨개져) – lyrics from “못하겠어(Can’t).”

Youngjae: The lyrics of “Sick(아파)” – “I hope you could listen to this song.” It stays in my mind (니가 이 노래를 듣길)

BamBam: The lyrics from “97 Young and Rich”: “It’s BamBam!”

Yugyeom: “It may be obvious, but I won’t change” – I got to catch both the meaning and the rhyme of the flow (in Korean) with just one sentence, and it’s very ordinary, simple words: “뻔할지는 몰라도 변하지는 않을거야)”

JB: Various hip hop and R&B artists, because I want to make great music with lots of people.

Mark: Justin Bieber, because I love his songs and his voice.
