The singer also recently shared with a South Korean magazine that he would like to “show a different side of me” through his music, according to The Korea Herald. he added that he also plans to focus on his activities in South Korea for the time being, sharing that he “can find peace only once I am fully recognised here”.
Following their departure from JYP Entertainment, members of GOT7 have each signed to separate labels. Although the group have expressed their desire to continue making music together, rapper Jackson Wang shared that the members will spend the year “do[ing] their own stuff”.
Despite the members of GOT7 focusing on their solo careers for now, they have assured fans that the group would still “continue”. JAY B also previously expressed his wishes for the group to release at least one album every year moving forward.
