Bambam Officially Signs With ABYSS Company
On Mar. 4, ABYSS Company surprised fans on Twitter, sharing a welcome poster featuring GOT7's Bambam. This marked their official announcement of Bambam joining the company.
Alongside ABYSS Company's official announcement, Bambam himself updated fans through his personal Twitter account, sharing new headshots he took for the company. He also made a simple tweet that reads "#ABYSSCOMPANY".
The idol also shared his official social media accounts with ABYSS Company. His Instagram and Twitter handles are both @BAMBAMxABYSS, while his Facebook account is simply BamBam. All three mentioned social media platforms only feature the official ABYSS Company poster as of press time.
The idol also officially launched a YouTube channel called "BAMBAM SPACE." One video has been uploaded to the channel, titled "BAMBAM X ABYSS," that features Bambam posing for the camera and showing off his visuals. The introductory film makes us of lights, flashes, and VHS-like effects.
Labelmate Sunmi Welcomes Bambam to ABYSS Company
Following the announcement that Bambam is ABYSS Company's latest talent, now-labelmate Sunmi proudly welcomed the Thai idol to the family. Sunmi quote-tweeted ABYSS Company's poster welcoming Bambam to the company and warmly tweeted, "Welcome, #BAMBAM dongsaeng." The phrase dongsaeng literally translates to "younger sibling," as can be used by a non-family member when they are close.
Bambam and Sunmi were previously labelmates under JYP Entertainment. Under JYP Entertainment, Sunmi debuted as a member of the Wonder Girls in 2007 and as a soloist in 2013. Following the Wonder Girls' disbandment in 2017, Sunmi signed with MakeUs Entertainment, which is now known as ABYSS Company.
