GOT7‘s BamBam has just made his solo debut and Ahgases (GOT7’s fans) are already obsessed with his solo album riBBon!
In light of his solo debut, BamBam held an online press conference to discuss the album and his start as a solo artist. BamBam shared that he’s quite nervous and put a lot of thought into what he wanted to showcase in the album.
I’m really nervous. I recently changed my agency, but I’ve been thinking a lot about what kind of color I should show in the future, and I’ve been working on this album.
BamBam added that since promoting with GOT7 he’s always thought about how he wanted to show his own individual charms and color through his solo debut.
While promoting for seven years, I wanted to show off my own color and I thought about wanting to showcase songs that I had made. Since this is the first time I’ve gone solo in Korea, I wanted to show that ‘this is BamBam.’
Despite the nerves and the pressure to show his true self, BamBam revealed his members reassured him to just be his loveable self.
I’ve mention that I was a bit worried about going solo but my friends Yugyeom, Mark who is currently in the United States, Jinyoung, and many others just said I should be myself.
BamBam also shared that his members advised him to push all of his positive energy out and share it with his fans.
They told me that if I feel pressured, it could actually be worse, and since I already have a bright personality, that I should just pour that energy out in order to help a lot of people feel joy.
Furthermore, BamBam claimed that Because it was an unexpected concept from him, he’s glad his members didn’t hear his music before its release.
I think it’s best to be myself. I didn’t allow my members to listen to my music ahead of time. Just like my fans, I don’t think they expected me to do such a bright and colorful concept.
Since this is his debut as a soloist, BamBam stated that he had more comments and suggestions from his staff and that he enjoys his concept a lot!
This time, I had the opinions from my agency staff and I also enjoyed this concept a lot. I’ve grown accustomed to this concept that I think it might be awkward if I suddenly tried to do something cool.
