Kim Yugyeom—also known as GOT7’s Yugyeom—is set to steal fangirls’ hearts at the New Frontier Theater on August 19. The charming K-pop idol and soloist is the fourth GOT7 member to visit the Philippines in 2022.
But, before you prepare your Ahgabongs, check out some of the most exciting details we know about Yugyeom and his concert so far.
Yugyeom is the maknae, main dancer, and sub-vocalist of GOT7
It’s no question that GOT7 is such a talented and good-looking group. And of course, Yugyeom never disappoints with his visual, manly charm, unique voice, and slick dance moves. Don’t judge us for this one, but we can’t stop watching Yugyeom’s legs when he performs because of his detailed footwork.
Being GOT7’s main dancer, it’s no surprise that Yugyeom delivers in every performance. But there’s something about his sharp yet fluid movements that makes it hard to look away.
Yugyeom debuted as a soloist in June 2021
The members of GOT7 have been busy with solo activities following their “freedom” from JYP Entertainment in January 2021. For Yugyeom, he debuted as a soloist in June of the same year with the EP, Point of View: U.
Yugyeom’s first solo EP goes beyond his music style from his GOT7 days, focusing more on hip-hop and R&B. The seven-track mini-album includes the songs I Want U Around, Running Through The Rain, All Your Fault, All About U, Love The Way, Falling In Love, and When You Fall.
The K-pop charmer then released his second single album Take You Down in March 2022.

What do Yugyeom, BamBam, BTS’ Jungkook, SEVENTEEN’s The8, Mingyu, and DK, Astro’s Cha Eunwoo, and NCT’s Jaehyun have in common? They’re all gorgeous—and they’re born in 1997.
It’s unknown how the ‘97 liners squad was formed, but their birth year is one of the reasons Yugyeom and Jungkook’s close friendship came about. BamBam, The8, Mingyu, DK, Eunwoo, and Jaehyun soon joined the gang and the rest is history.
Yugyeom is not one to spill the juicy details about their close friendship, but Jungkook revealed in a BTS comeback showcase in 2017 that they have a group chat. So adorable!
Yugyeom is the fourth GOT7 member to visit the Philippines
Did GOT7 just fall in love with the Philippines or what? As the maknae of the group, it looks like Yugyeom took notes from his hyungs (or kuyas) and their previous shows in the country.
Youngjae is the first member to visit the Philippines as a soloist for a fan meeting at the New Frontier Theater on July 23, 2022.
Seven days later, on July 29, BamBam and Jackson performed for Pinoy Ahgases at the “2022 K-pop Masterz Concert in Manila” alongside K-pop boy group TREASURE. BamBam previously held fansign events with fans in Cebu and Manila.
