When Jeff talked about the rise of the K-POP industry in the States, BamBam once again displayed that his maturity surpassed people of his age. He shared his thoughts about having the honour of being able to perform at venues that no other K-pop group has performed at before. He stated that “K-pop is not just GOT7” and as a K-pop artist, he hopes that other artists in the industry would be able to gain some energy from GOT7 to do the same, to expand the influence of K-pop. JB further added that to able to broaden the influence of K-pop regardless of which group it is, is a blessing and a good thing, as he feels that it is an honor to be able to share the culture of K-pop as GOT7 with others.
