During GOT7's comeback showcase on June 18th which took place at the Ax Hall in Seoul, the boys shared their thoughts on who their rivals and role models were. They were asked a question about WINNER, who is YG Entertainment's first boy group in eight years.  WINNER has also been commonly referred to as being the rival for JYP Entertainment's rookie boy group, GOT7.

JB stated, "This is a tricky question.  We do not think of them as rivals, at all.  Rather than looking at them in a competitive way, I will look at their strengths to work even harder and I hope that the both of us will come out winners."

When asked about GOT7's strengths, JB commented,  "I don't think there is anything that can be called a strength, yet.  I do think we are a bit good at martial arts tracking.  There's nothingspecial as of yet, so looks like we need to work even harder."

As far as role models are concerned, GOT7 selected their senior fellow label group, 2PM.  They stated, "2PM seniors have the best skills and personalities.  They take care of us a lot and there were many times when we were moved by them.  Even when we were filming reality program 'I GOT7,' they advised us a lot to not feel burdened and show our normal personalities."

When asked how it was working alongside J.Y. Park, the boys of GOT7 said, "Producer J.Y. Park is always like a father to us and buys us a lot of food.  He is normally kind like that, but when we go into recording, he is like a knife and very detailed when working on his song.  He's a true professional and has charisma."

Be sure to catch their second mini-album when it releases on June 23rd!
