Got7 Wants Win-Win Relationship with Winner Instead of Rivalry
Got7 spoke up about YG Entertainment’s group Winner, which has often been named its rival since the time of its debut.
On June 18, Got7 held a showcase celebrating the release of its second mini album in AX-Korea located in Gwangjang-dong and performed the title song A for the first time.
Appearing on stage by singing Forever Young, a track from the new album, Got7 showed off its upgraded performance through Goodnight and A.
When asked if he thinks that Winner is Got7’s rival, JB answered, “I don’t think of them as our rival. Instead of forming a rivalry, I think we should look at their strengths and be motivated to work harder.”
JB also said, “I hope that we can form a win-win relationship. I don’t think that we have any advantages over Winner yet. Martial arts tricking may be our advantage. I think we should work harder since we cannot name anything as our strength yet.”
Having entered the industry by releasing its first mini album Girls Girls Girls in January, Got7 has received a lot of spotlights for being the first boy group to debut from JYP Entertainment since 2PM debuted six years ago.
Got7’s second mini album has a total of 8 tracks, including the title song A, which has been praised for expressing the members’ bright and powerful energy. A has been written and composed by Park Jin Young and it is a song that features R&B sound with hip-hop rhythm.
