This weekend, GOT7‘s BamBam kicked off his first solo tour, 2023-2024 BamBam THE 1ST WORLD TOUR [AREA 52].

He was joined by the rest of the GOT7 maknae line, Youngjae and Yugyeom, who performed “NANANA” on stage with him. Leader Jay B, who is currently fulfilling his mandatory military service, also attended, supporting from the audience.

Now, Youngjae has revealed a behind-the-scenes story from this exciting moment on MBC FM4U‘s radio program Best Friend. He explained that while he has been doing musicals recently, he felt that performing on stage in the concert was where he really belonged.

Yugyeomie was there too, and I was there too, and Jaebeom hyung was watching from the audience seat… since Jaebeom hyung is currently doing his military service, so he could only watch. It was fun! It’s just been a long time… And, well, musicals are stage performances, too. And they’re great. But it got me thinking like, ‘This stage is where I really belong.’ I was really happy. It was a sea of smiles and laughter.

Youngjae also praised BamBam’s professionalism. He revealed that BamBam’s foot was hurt even during rehearsals, and his legs had already swollen. Still, BamBam performed a phenomenal show for Ahgase.

First off, Bamie was so cool. But in the middle of like rehearsals, Bamie hurt his foot because he fell down. Even his arms here was all chafed and both of his legs were swelling. So I was like, ‘Will he be able to perform…?’ But he really is a pro… he was really cool, Bamie is so cool.

Following the concert, BamBam posted a shocking photo of his foot. His foot and ankle appeared heavily bruised and swollen.

We hope BamBam takes care of himself, especially since his tour is only beginning!
