GOT7 is a seven-member Korean male group, often compared to 2PM, their label mates at JYP Entertainment. GOT7 has been prolific for a rookie group, with several releases before its first anniversary. JB, the group’s leader, describes GOT7’s sound as built on a “base of hip-hop and R&B” (The Korea Times). The group is also known for its unique choreography: “Got7’s dance performances display moves derived from martial arts combined with b-boying . . . . the boys are highly proficient in b-boying and martial art tricking” (KCrush).
