The wait is over: GOT7's BuzzFeed interview is finally here

Source: BuzzFeed Celeb

Idk why it took so long for it to come out but HERE IT IS. The real tragedy here is that as it turns out they were gonna give them puppies at first but JB is allergic to dog hair so they're cooking instead, dammit!

Well, it's a great interview nonetheless, actually might be one of my favorites from the US round up. Got7 always does best when they're allowed to just... be themselves lol.

It's a perfect combo of actual interesting new tidbits from them and just Mess7 trying to cook anything while roasting each other every chance they get, I wouldn't have it any other way.

previous US interviews:

Nylon Magazine
iHeartRadio + Billboard article
Forbes interview
PeopleNow (part 2 / full interview)
Segment on PeopleNow (part 1)

this is not only my favourite got7 interview, but probably my fave kpop US interview lol not because of the content itself, but because it is so much better to have someone who can speak korean as the interviewer. he seemed interested in what they had to say and also prepared to interview them. nice job, buzzfeed.

The language barrier, or lack thereof in this case, really does make a difference! (Even if the members do know English and I commend them for having articulated themselves so well in it thus far)

all kpop groups have done a really good job handling their US interviews in my opinion. you can see their effort in trying to engage and answer everything at their best. of course interviews without translators will always be ideal, but I also feel sad when idols have to find a way to answer questions in english by themselves. not only because of how nervous and pressuring the situation can be, but also it's kind of unfair that they won't be able to fully answer something like they probably wanted if it was in korean. so the best scenario is really having an interviewer who can speak english and korean. this doesn't stop the idols from speaking english (and this is really good esp to build their confidence with the language), but also allows them to be more natural and satisfied with their answers. like yugyeom interjections here and there wouldn't exist if he "couldn't" speak in korean, for example.

it is my fave interview from them too! it's not too long, and yet it's not too crazy/chill. the ellie one was a bit intense for my liking, so this one is better to me imo

this was a fantastic interview. they seemed completely themselves even though it was half korean and half english. they are so comfortable and also just hilarious without effort.

Yugyeom cackling is me.

I laughed so hard at Yugyeom like 'confessing' he has a little bit of chest hair... lmaoo

nothing to say about the interview itself but i just enjoy watching them. so much less stiff when the interviewer can speak korean and it’s not all on one or two members to answer

lmao biggest reveal to me this ep is that Yugi has chest hair.

I loved this interview! they all seemed relaxed around Evan! he also made em look puny tbh in size.

out of all the buzzfeed english interviews lately this was my least favorite tbh. oh well i haven't really been into got7 for a while now, i think i finally lost interest in them for good. kinda sad bc i followed them from debut.

JB answering "leopard" because a tiger would be too big yes leopards are the size of house cats that would be correct

"Why so serious?" I actually really liked JB's answer but lmaoooo Jinyoung

Mark forgetting to say "What's up we are", Youngjae lowkey and Yugyeom highkey dissing Jacks, "edit this part out" part 1091374, the inedible result of the candies, this is their best US interview so far! Bless Evan!!!

yuujinchous 10th-Aug-2018 10:57 am (UTC)
so they couldn't do a puppy interview because jb is allergic and they couldn't do a kitty interview because youngjae is allergic lmfao dammit!!! got7 is cursed. but watching them make candy is surprisingly funny as well, i wonder if it was really handed out to fans at the venue? can anyone vouch for that? heh just kidding

jinyoung's pronounciation of "got7's real identity" honestly has me feeling some kinda way ... i'm so far gone with this boy!!! and he looks so good? what is this? the way he makes fun of jb for being too serious? i love it! although he should not be one to talk!!!! does he remember when he said "i don't say i love you very easily" at gdny??? :^)

i love mark. i love him. i love him and his perfect korean lhskjggj it's always funny to see everyone else get surprised when he uses a word that apparently the other members never even realized he knew!! he is truly an intellectual AND I LOVE the way he says his own name hahah

what did jackson want to say about something jb used to do as his sunbae? was it really critizing him because that's what the buzzfeed guy guessed but it sounds like something else!! or is it that whole 94-liner issue they have lmao it looks like jinyoung knows what jackson was talking about so maybe

"bambam is always yolo" god jinyoung... such a dad. and who still uses the word yolo lhdsjfkhgkjd

jb wants a leopard as a pet because a tiger would be too big.................. makes sense

billboard charting? what kind of irrelevant goal ljhsdgkjjhg JUST KIDDING but ahhh i want got7 to win a daesang too!!!!!!! this was super cute omg :( i love them
camouflagecat 10th-Aug-2018 12:02 pm (UTC)
Lol mte Jiyoung isn't one to talk when making fun of someone's seriousness.

Omg the way he said "Got7's true identity" and even the way he stood and waved that stick around... gurl

then he goes into instant "cool dad" when using words like YOLO asdfghjkl.

The leader's and maknae's pet suggestions were so extra omg "leopard because tiger is too big" bish how is that any different lmaooo

jackson is so handsome and yugyeom is so cute :(
camouflagecat 10th-Aug-2018 11:53 am (UTC)
Jackson's skin looks amazing nowadays damn I guess all that organic tea and food is doing him good lol.

Im like day 3 post abdominal surgery, just laparoscopic, nothing major, but it was painful trying to reel in my giggling, I feel like my incision would just like cut open D:

I think Evan been getting into that sweet pie of Kpop and buzzfeed and just building his rep by now. It makes the interview much relaxed for the idols, bc even if they struggle to articulate, Evan can still nudge a bit. I really enjoyed his pieces with Kpop idols recently, especially this and tiffany’s.
