This makes me wish for a stripped down/acoustic/acapella version of Eclipse. I just want to hear them sing without all those heavy sound.

P/S: I'm not too thrilled about Jinyoung being the special MC in the same episode as kim gura with his son as the guest. My guy deserves all the spotlight in the world ;_;

Omg yes acoustic eclipse would be amazing. Praying that they do this.

Oh so they're gonna have all the spotlight you think?

Also on top of that I didn't realize at first which show it was until someone told me (this is the one with the unlikable/rude hosts?) so now I'm just uh oh @ how this whole thing will pan out. Hopefully we get some good moments from Jinyoung, that's all I want 🤞🏻

yay for 1° tape version (whatever that means)! it's not a lot of songs overall so i wish we could get a video for all of them but i'm honestly not holding my breath. jype has been one disappointment after another lately. add sm to that, i want someone to burn down those two companies! i wonder if we're getting all songs from this album on tour? probably, right? i'm very excited for their seoul concerts so i can finally know what the setlist will look like and they better NOT remove their best songs from it before coming to europe again (like they did last year with prove it smh!!!).

another yay for #eclipse1stwin! it's kinda funny that got7 won on mcd but not on show champion. although i know show champion has been kinda shady with their data so whatever, let's keep it up! fans better put in their all, all these interview snippets of them talking about how much they want to win a daesang kill me!!! when will the universe align for got7 PLEASE

good luck to jinyoung on radio star! i'm tentatively looking forward to it I GUESS but well............ radio star's track record with my faves is shitty so i'm kinda wary... either way do well my boy!

I have read in past got7 posts complaints about this comeback promo, their management and especially how they handled their world tour.... but I couldn't really understand, can someone help me? are the concerts not selling well? are they not being promoted? so many kpop acts have been to US in these past months that maybe they should have announced US dates as early as possible so fans could save? I'm just confused and also curious

Some other people could probably explain it better but here's the gist of it:

- JYPE doing shit promo for got7'c comebacks, like not promoting their album to the public well before the release, or putting them on variety shows, giving them photoshoots (this varies but the few recent cb's it's been like this)
- not to mention JYPE has had a continuous problem with not having enough albums in stock, so people can't buy more albums to break records, and rise on charts
- this one divides opinions but some fans also complain that JYPE doesn't put effort into got7's concepts and comebacks (personally imo on this front this latest cb was very weak), or has a confusing way of promoting it (no cb schedule, announcing the cb out of the blue only to leave us in the dark for more than a week before the next update, confusing teasers (last cb we had a lot of completely pointless teasers like the length of the tracks (??)), or the content we do get just feeling very lackluster overall
- recent problem in management include poor planning, like announcing the US dates (at the start of the tour) with very little time in between the announcement and tickets going on sale, this giving fans little to no time to save up etc., bc of this their US dates this upcoming tour haven't been selling well, there were still many seats left a few weeks ago (idk what the situation is now but it hasn't sold this bad before afaik)
- also they've taken away all the photo op and hi-touch from the tours, only in Seoul is there a chance for as few lucky fans that got a pass from pre-ordering the album
- recently they also took away the hand-holding/hi-fives/any physical touching in fansigns, which caused an uproar among fans. got7 themselves didn't seem to know why the change either. JYPE also put big bodyguards behind every members that fans felt intimidated by (and I even saw an fanacc of the bodyguard laughing/looking like they were mocking the fans), and it kinda ruined the whole vibe at the fansign. Fans also pointed out the fact that JYPE hadn't issued any info why they'd done this, or why they did it at fansign (a closed-off, surveilled place) and not, say, at airports where bodyguards actually would matter. After the uproar, JYPE issued some kinda vague statement saying they'd do the fansign again, and brought back the hi-fives/hand-holding

There might be some other stuff but this is what I remember off the top of my head

thank you =D

it's sad to read that after their interviews talking about their popularity and things like that.... they clearly want to go higher and have done everything they could so if their company is not giving their best, it must be super frustrating for the boys. I hope they get good results for this comeback anyway... (did they renew their contracts?)

also touring is probably their biggest source of income at the moment so it should be the most well-executed plan from their team, it's bizarre that jype didn't think it wisely with timing and details. iirc twice is having hi-touch or photo op for their US stops right?! weird that got7 isn't tbh...
