GOT7, a 7-members group comprising JB (leader), Jin-young, Mark, Jackson, Young-jae, BamBam and Yugyeom was formed under JYP, and debuted on January 16th, 2014. The group released their 5th mini album Flight Log: Departure on 21st March 2016 which is also the first installment of their FLIGHT LOG Series. This album aimed to capture the feeling of ‘being free’ and ‘exploring one’s colours.’ The album was packed with a total of 8 tracks with the title track ‘Fly’ and the follow-up promotion song ‘Home Run.’ The album, overall, is fun-filled, quite different from their previous releases, and has its distinct vibe and you won’t regret giving it a shot.
We’re gonna fly, fly
You and I, our dreams are right here blazing inside me girl
Fly, fly, our time is like sunshine after the rain
Fly, fly, shining brightly on you at the end of the tunnel
The title track ‘Fly’ had an experimental twist with a melody-like rap. The song had a melodious flow, written and composed by ear attack. The track indeed attacked the ear with its catchy music and lyrics. The track describes a complete story of breaking all the shackles and being able to fly with their loved ones. This GOT7 track is a trophy winner, quite special to the group and fans. It is a great song and still a bop!
The fellow member, Jin-young participated in writing the lyrics and composition of the song with member Mark in rap making. This song feels like honey to ears as it talks about how the main character blushes whenever he sees his loved one while hesitating to confess his feelings but can’t stand others being with her. Overall, it is a simple and sweet track.
See the light
This track flashes the light on the message that ‘you are perfect’ and being light of their own life and they want their loved one to be by their side. The track involved Yugyeom and Mark in lyrics and composition while BamBam and Mark participated in rap.
The 4th track is on the line, a quite catchy song with quirky and fun lyrics. The leader of the group, JB as Defsoul, was involved in the track. The song conveys “a story about a girl” where everyone takes a dip in the said fish tank and joins other fishes already in the fish tank. JB smartly employs personification in the track and it lives up to the vibe. It is a creative and colorful song that instantly lifts the mood.
The fellow member, Youngjae as Ars actively participated in the 5th track of the album. Ars puts on his creative hat and threads his wish to be able to turn back the time and rewind it if he could to be able to be with his loved one. This track is amazing and perfectly conveys the strong feeling of a lover toward his loved one.
Begging on my knees

The track ‘Home Run’ hits a perfect home run. A fun and light song which takes us to our teenage years describing sweet affectionate feelings and puppy love where they perfectly sync their feeling to a baseball match and hitting a home run. This track was released as a follow-up title track. It is a cheerful song, that makes you wear your dancing shoes and flaunt your skills along its tune.
