It looks like GOT7 fans aren't going to give up on their favorite K-pop group after their label exit, but quite the opposite. January 19 saw GOT7 make their departure from record label conglomerate JYP Entertainment as their contract expires. With a fandom that any group would hope for as they enter into new realms with their careers, GOT7's fans have made the group trend on Twitter as they depart from the agency.

Many fans have poured out their love for GOT7 and have shared their unrelenting support. "Cheers to a new chapter with you!! We'll keep spinning 'till the last page 7 OR NEVER, 7 OR NOTHING #[email protected] #GOT7," said a fan while another wrote, "yes this is it the day that we've been waiting for our boys. A new journey begins now."

One fan shared, "I am looking forward to your future, I hope all your success and happiness in life.I will cheer everyone and support all of you till the end." "TO COMMEMORATE THE START OF THIS NEW BEGINNING WITH GOT7, WHY DON'T WE VOTE FOR THEM ON SMA AND GET THAT AWARD???" a fan wrote. 

Many fans believe GOT7's exit will give them a sense of freedom from a label that they feel has held back their potential: "No more of that cursed company, our boys will suffer no more #GOT7NewPage." Another fan added, "after all these years of mistreatment, GOT7 is finally free. now they have the chance to enjoy their artistic and personal freedom & they will be even more successful. this is not the end, it’s a new beginning. a beginning of something BIG. 7 OR NEVER, 7 OR NOTHING."

Another fan said, "After 7 years of mistreatment & sabotage & of ahgases struggling to promote the boys & protect them from sasaengs, antis & baseless rumors. The boys are finally free to do whatever they love & be treated the way they deserve to be treated."














It is unclear why fans believe that JYP Entertainment has "mistreated" the K-pop group and opinions differ, but neither GOT7 nor the agency has shown any bad blood toward each other. Member Mark Tuan has also noted his time with JYP "has been the best years of my life."

On January 10, he wrote on Twitter, "The past 7 years have been the best years of my life. Nothing is coming to an end, just the beginning. The seven of us are going to continue to bring you guys the best version of us till the end. #GOT7FOREVER."


Nevertheless, whatever the exact reason may be for not renewing their contract, we're hoping to see a bright new adventure with GOT7.
