GOT7 Mark Reveals He Wasn't Sure if He Wanted to Continue Pursuing Music

On November 12, GOT7 member Mark sat down with NME for an interview. During his talk with the music publication, he revealed that he considered quitting music entirely.

In the interview, he revealed that the boys in GOT7 always wanted to try pursuing their own solo music. However, Mark did not share this sentiment while GOT7 was promoting, saying that he was unable to pinpoint his own unique color while in the boy group. He stated that he was not "super wanting" to do his own stuff while in GOT7.

He added that when he returned to Los Angeles after his contract with JYP Entertainment expired, he was not sure if he wanted to keep pursuing his music. Since he was with GOT7 for nearly all of his 20s, he felt comfortable where he was. Mark told NME, "Having to do this all by myself was a lot of pressure."

He pondered if he had the capabilities of making an entire song by himself and if he was able to attract people's attention. He was only able to calm his reservation when he returned to the studio with an open mind; there, he was willing to give music a second chance, as he had a new team of producers ready to create music that was natural for Mark.

He told the publication that he realized that it was a lot of fun to continue music and chose to continue pursuing it. Now, he thinks being a solo artist is fun, as he can try different sounds and not get tied down to one genre. Mark is now able to find himself with music.

His next challenge is overcoming his image as a K-pop idol. He told NME, "It is going to take some time, but it is also hard because as K-pop idols, we are supposed to have this image. I just have to find the right balance, and I am still trying to figure that out."

When he was with GOT7, there were seven guys in one team with the help of their company. They were able to throw out a lot of ideas together and figure out what was best for the group. Because of that, they can determine what they want to sound like and what the fans would like together.

However, as a solo artist, Mark has to find out what he wants to show the fans what he wants to sound like. While he says it's "kind of hard" on his own, there are still a lot of things he wants to try out.
