GOT7‘s Jackson Wang is the most affectionate and loyal friend one can have, and nowhere was this more evident than in what he had to say about his members on their anniversary.
GOT7 celebrated nine years together as a group on January 16. While there were many ups and downs over the years, the members pushed through together and ended up making history as the first fully self-owned K-Pop group with all the trademark rights to their name.
They may each now be busy carrying out their solo activities, but that hasn’t stopped them from being as close as ever; according to BamBam, the GOT7 group chat is still very much busy.
🐍: We have a groupchat—a @GOT7 groupchat. And it’s still so busy in there.
🐍: Everyday, almost! We love to make fun of each other—work.
🐍: Maybe, I don’t know, today, the picture [Gentle Monster] go out, one of the members gonna make fun of me for sure. #Bambam @BamBam1A pic.twitter.com/yrrovL0Sp3

Jay B and Jinyoung reunited on Youngjae‘s radio show Best Friend, where they once again showcased their chaotic sibling energy.

Seeing as they’re spread out all over the world, Mark Tuan, Yugyeom, and Jackson were unable to join them. Jackson is currently doing his MAGIC Man World Tour (which has seen some insane viral moments), and a small speech he made during his show on January 16 in Paris has completely melted Ahgases’ hearts.
Speaking of his members, Jackson referred to them as his family, saying, “I have a family, my f*cking brothers, GOT7.”

He touched on the many things they each have gone through, promising that, no matter what, “it’s family forever.” His heartfelt words had fans (understandably) in tears. They praised him for showing so much genuine, heartfelt love for his group.

They also emphasized that Jackson has always defended his group, proving that he doesn’t need to always show it to let everyone know how much he loves them.
people should never underestimate jackson’s love for the other members. he may not include any green related in his concerts, but he never let anybody talk down or underestimate got7 in any shape of form. it’s 7 or never forever. it’s got7 forever.

GOT7 have beaten all the odds and remained together for nine years because of their true family bond, and Jackson’s warm words are exactly what Ahgases needed to hear to remind them of that!
