JYPE never sent any members to shows or gave them jobs. Like I said many times it’s the PDs who notice idols and give them a chance to appear on their shows.
In the early stages of GOT7′s career Mark said he didn’t have anything he wanted to try. Only recently he mentioned in one of the interviews that he started learning Mandarin. He also appeared on many magazines this year. Appearing on The Laws of the Jungle was a huge step forward for him too.
JB, Jinyoung and Youngjae mentioned that they prefer radio instead of appearing on variety. JB even said he didn’t feel comfortable on variety. Jinyoung is the most interested in acting but GOT7′s busy schedule prevents him from playing a bigger role in a drama (I’m reminding it for new fans, just in case).
JB is serious about composing, he has his Paradise team now. It’s a good first step for the future. He was allowed to compose GOT7′s title track too.
As for Yugyeom - there aren’t many ways to promote your dancing if you’re a K-Pop idol. Since DAY6′s Jae opened a Youtube account, maybe Yugyeom can open one too? Because it looks like Hit The Stage isn’t happening.
In our fandom we have fans who want GOT7 to focus on the group, and fans who want GOT7 to focus more on solo activities. What is right? What should GOT7 members do? I think there would be some unhappy fans either way.
We also don’t know if it was members who said they wanted to try doing more solo activities or if it was JYPE’s suggestion. Members can’t reveal everything, just like JYPE won’t reveal what is their long term plan to promote GOT7.
Members moved out of the dorm quickly for idol standards, it’s true. It was their own decision and if they needed it we should try being happy for them. Despite people’s concerns them moving out doesn’t mean that they moved out because they don’t get along. We can see how close they are through interviews and shows.
