K-pop boy group Got7 celebrated the eighth anniversary of their fandom Ahgase (short for “I Got 7”) on Monday with a teaser for their new EP to announce an upcoming full group comeback.
The seven-member group will release its self-titled EP on May 23 at 6:00 p.m. KST. New official social media accounts on YouTube, TikTok, Instagram and Twitter were created for the group on May 6th and feature a teaser video of their logo.
The group also announced a reunion concert called “Got7 2022 Fancon ‘Homecoming’” slated for May 21 and 22 at the Olympic Handball Gymnasium. The May 22 concert will also be available online.
The group’s new social channels were created after they left JYP Entertainment, following the expiration of their contracts. The recent announcement marks their first comeback since their fourth studio album “Breath of Love: Last Piece” was released in November 2020. Their last single, “Encore,” was released in February 2021.
Since then, the group’s individual members have kept busy. BamBam recently released music with the Golden State Warriors’ new entertainment division, and Hong Kong-born Jackson Wang performed as part of 88rising’s lineup at Coachella.
Got7 originally debuted in January 2014 under JYP Entertainment with members JAY B, Mark, Jackson, Jinyoung, Youngjae, BamBam and Yugyeom.
