In 2017, I released my first solo album, and I kept busy through my appearance in the drama ‘While You Were Sleeping.’ I sincerely thank the fans who gave me lots of interest and love. In the Year of the Golden Dog, I am planning to promote even more actively as a singer and an actress. Happy New Year to everyone, and please stay healthy!”

GOT7’s Jinyoung

Jinyoung said, “2017, the Year of the Rooster, has ended, and it is now a new year. Rather than feel pressure at the start of a new year, I hope you will all enjoy more relaxing, fun experiences and thoughts and have a happy 2018. Happy New Year, and I hope you will always be healthy!”

He added, “I think it’s meaningful that I’m able to offer my New Year’s greetings to this many people. Above all, my fellow GOT7 member Jackson was also born in the year of the dog, so I think I will be able to spend a more meaningful and confident 2018.”

Wonpil concluded, “In 2017, I released two new tracks every month, and I held a concert every month. It was a priceless time for me, and I learned a lot in many ways. In the new year, I won’t forget about the things I felt in 2017, and I will work hard to become a more memorable person through good music and positive appearances!”
