Encore means “Again” and we love how the boys choose this word for the MV to show that irrespective of bottlenecks, they will continue to sing for their lovely fandom and that GOT7 is forever and no one can ever change that!
The music is being released via Warner Music Korea and it is being speculated that GOT7 may have signed with the label but there is no official confirmation.
