GOT7 To Perform As 6 Members In Upcoming 'Fly In Seoul 2016' Concerts Without Leader JB
GOT7's "Fly In Seoul 2016" concerts are still happening, but it looks like one member will definitely be sitting them out.
According to previous reports, GOT7's leader JB has been suffering from back pain during their practices and preparations for their upcoming concerts.
After a check-up at a hospital, JB was told that there was a problem with his spinal disc, prompting JYP Entertainment to let JB sit out the group's "M! Countdown" performance earlier today, according to a previous report by IS Plus, via Soompi.
GOT7's agency had reportedly monitored JB's conditon to determine whether or not he can participate in the group's April 29 and 30 concerts, but JYPE has now confirmed that JB won't be joining Mark, BamBam, Junior, Yugyeom, Youngjae and Jackson on stage later this week.
In consideration of JB's health, JYPE announced that GOT7 will be performing as six members minus JB on the Friday and Saturday concerts, adding that the company will make sure GOT7's leader gets proper treatment and makes a fast recovery, according to Soompi.
JYPE is also offering to refund fans who want to return their tickets in the wake of JB's news.
GOT7 will be holding their first concert series, "Fly In Seoul 2016," on April 29 to 30 at the Olympic Handball Gymnasium.
Meanwhile, JB's fellow member Jackson is currently starring in MBC's "Celebrity Bromance" with MONSTA X's Jooheon, and in the latest episode, the two close friends went on a date to Eungbong Mountain.
At first, Jackson suggested they try rock climbing, but Jooheon manages to persuade him to enjoy the night view of Seoul instead with photos.
Following their trek up the mountain, the two rappers chat for a bit and the subject of their conversation touches on bringing a date to see the amazing view.
Jackson then suddenly confesses to Jooheon, "I have a girlfriend," shocking his friend who immediately asks who the girl is.
However, Jackson replies, "It's IGOT7," referring to his group's fanclub.
