GOT7’s Youngjae Collaboration With Sanjoy and Elliott Yamin in the Works!

Fellow ahgases (IGOT7s) have been waiting for this day to come—GOT7 member Youngjae (Ars) is officially collaborating with artists Sanjoy and Elliott Yamin! The highly praised vocalist received a special surprise back in January at GOT7‘s fanmeet in LA when Sanjoy and Elliott Yamin stopped by to show support. Their appearance was thanks to ahgases who shared Youngjae‘s story about his JYPE audition and his admiration for them. 

Youngjae has made a surprise visit to New York City to meet up with Elliott and Sanjoy for the special collaboration. Currently, the 3 artists are about to start working together on new music, even remaking Youngjae‘s solo song “Trauma”. The music is expected to have fusions of Bollywood, K-pop and international. 

Youngjae‘s admiration towards their music dates back to when he sang Elliott Yamin‘s song “Wait For You” at his audition for JYP Entertainment in 2013. He passed successfully and immediately joined the group set to debut as GOT7.

Several years later, and he sings the same song in front of the artists he looks up to. 

Stay tuned for more updates about this sweet collaboration!

Happy 2 Year Anniversary to The Ark!

On April 10, 2015, a group of 5 girls set out to make an impact in the K-pop industry—strong and fierce in everything they did, they easily impressed fans with their cool aura. From doing dance covers of EXO‘s “Call Me Baby” and BTS‘ “Boy in Luv” to covering popular songs, they gained attention for their unique image and made their way for debut. These girls consisted of Jeon Minju, Kim Euna (Yuna), Yujin, Lee Suji (Halla), and Jane. The strong hip-hop girl group made their mark that day with their debut song, “The Light”—this powerful girl group was known as The Ark.

To pay tribute to the victims of the Sewol Ferry incident, The Ark dedicated the music video for “The Light” with a similar storyline, showing a mother losing her daughter in a bus accident. The music video covered the significance of treasuring loved ones and not taking the cherished time for granted.

The Ark were one of a kind, pushing forth a strong hip-hop concept that’s rarely found amongst girl groups. Together they began their promotions with their debut single, performing often at the Han River for dance covers specially prepared by themselves. Some of these dance covers include EXO‘s “Call Me Baby” and “Overdose”, as well as BTS‘ “Boy in Luv”. So much attention was brought to their phenomenal covers that even BTS reacted to their “Boy in Luv” dance cover.

However, as time went on, one of their vocalists, Yujin, had to take time off to undergo treatment for vocal chord nodules. Eventually, the girl group was confirmed to be disbanded in 2016 by their former company, Music K Entertainment, after a long hiatus.

Even to this day, fans follow the members of The Ark in their pursuit of activities after the disbandment, giving support for the girls to continue their dreams. Recently, Jeon Minju participated in KPOPSTAR’s last season, making it to the final 10; Euna Kim participated in the third season of Unpretty Rapstar, gaining recognition for her profound rapping; Suji and Jane became a part of The Real Girls Project: The iDOLM@STER. Check out the playlist of some our favorite performances by the members.

When asked about a reunion for The Ark members, Euna and the girls expressed that they’d like for one to happen. Despite being busy in separate activities, the girls still find time to keep in contact with another.

For honoring the 2nd anniversary of The Ark‘s debut and their strong presence in the K-pop world, let’s hope for a reunion to happen soon!
