1) The New Era Unit Teasers

Following up their New Era MV that was released on 6th May, GOT7 teased fans with a sneak peak of their unit songs! This time, Mark, Jinyoung and Yugyeom teamed up for their unit song titled “2(TWO)” while JB, Youngjae and BamBam teamed up for “HMMMM”. Check them out down below!

2) ‘Collaboran’ Episode 1 (JB and Yugyeom)

It was previously announced that JB and Yugyeom were to be collaborating with worldwide artist Ben Jones through the variety show ‘Collaboran’ for Perrier. During the first episode released on 13th May, JB and Yugyeom were both given a mission before meeting Ben Jones.

During an interview, the staff casually asked JB and Yugyeom on their artistic abilities and JB immediately burst out into laughter while Yugyeom looked apprehensive, as both showed their lack of confidence in their drawing skills. JB also mentioned that he is usually someone who is “shy” on the first meeting and with “each person (the time taken to get close) differs and it could be totally difficult to get close to a person for him, depending on the person”. To this, Yugyeom said that he was “similar” to JB with first interactions.

The staff gave JB and Yugyeom a mission to draw anything they wished on an empty canvas. At first the duo was unsure on how to start but Yugyeom later mentioned how sometimes he “can’t sleep at night and there is this scary face” that people usually imagine at that time and that he wanted to “try (drawing) that out once”. As soon as Yugyeom started his first stroke, JB immediately chimed that it was “good” and joked that Yugyeom should do it all.

Stuck with not knowing what to draw, JB pondered for a while before carefully picking up the brush. He drew a heart and also a facial expression similar to his own in the end, not forgetting his signature double moles above the left eyelid. As they slowly gained confidence, they started to add colours and other drawings to the canvas. JB took a look at their artwork and commented that it seemed like it was painted by a young child. The duo ended their mission well, seemingly satisfied with their completed art piece. Catch the full episode here where Ben Jones learns the choreography to ‘Look’ too!
