GOT7 was scheduled to premiere a live performance of “Fly” on the Naver V app at 9 p.m. on Monday. It will kick off music show activities by appearing on Mnet’s music program “M! Countdown” on Thursday.

The septet, known for its uniquely flashy choreography, had released “Mad” in September 2015. GOT7 was on tour in Japan in January and February 2016, hitting major cities including Sapporo, Namba, Tokyo, Fukuoka and Nagoya.

GOT7 is poised to hold its first concert at SK Olympic Handball Gymnasium in Seoul from April 29-30.

Since its debut in 2014, the band has been under the international spotlight as a rising K-pop star group. It clinched many awards in 2015, including the “Rookie Award” at the Seoul Music Awards, “Best New Artist” at the Golden Disk Awards, “New Asian Group Award” at the Youku Night Awards, “Best Korean Newcomer” at the YinYue V-Chart Awards and “Most Promising Newcomer Award” at the Top Chinese Music Festival.
