Whoa who remembers this?! XD

This weeks episode of V.Frirends is my favorite pick on the V PICK! channel series. If the cover didn’t give it away you’re right, it’s GOT7!!!

In this short episode of V PICK! GOT7 gave a thankful message to all the IGOT7’s around the world for helping them obtain two titles, Artist of the year and Best Popular award at the Asia Artist Awards!

As usual they couldn’t move forward without having to roast Youngjae and his embarrassing airport fashion sense and bad choice of shoes! LOL

In the video GOT7 showed their gratitude towards IGOT7s for their uttermost support they have shown GOT7 throughout the years. Not to mention also announcing their latest title song that will be coming out soon called, Miracle!

OMG I can’t wait! Look at these 7 handsome men XD

The boys briefly talked about the title song and what it meant to them. JB expressed how the song Miracle would reveal the feelings and experiences they had to face throughout the years as a group. In the short description JB gave I was able to interpret that the meaning of the song would be about looking back in life the hardships you had to face. The good vibes you experienced along the way and how it was all worth it in the end. What matters the most is that you’re standing stronger than ever and glad you were able to stuck through it all. Also, always giving thanks to the people who help you along the way. (emo and wise Jessi came out LOL)

Honestly, I have to say that those boys have progressively improved so much throughout the years. Not only as musicians and artists but has individuals as well. The most growth I’ve seen from the group would have to be BamBam because, he debuted at such a young age and to see him grow into the person he is today is truly remarkable. To me he’s still the same young, dorky, smiley and playful looking kid! XD

OMG who still remembers BamBam’s streak of dabbing 😂

I still remember seeing them in the survival show of WINNER in the episode where YG trainees and JYP trainees would battle each other out showing their suave moves and vocals, to which I thought the JYP kids killed them in the dancing category. Sorry WINNER and iKON but GOT7 took the title home.

Not to mention, their very first fanmeet in the states!! KPOP Dallas had the honor to participate and contribute in the event when they first came to Dallas!! Our KPD team has so many stories of our back-stage times with GOT7! I think I will leave that for another time because it is long and funny af. Or maybe in the future I can do a video in regards of all the artists and shows we have had the pleasure to collaborate with. The year 2015 was an incredible year for us as in growth and in experiences to which I am eternally grateful for.

With that I leave with my favorite video of V PICK!

Hope to see you all in my next blob post of V.Firends! I swear I’m working on getting some videos up. I’ve just been so busy at work and stressed that I have had no time to get everything going up, but I swear it will be soon!

Byeeee my loves!!
