What do you think about G7 Magazine?
I think it was a wonderful idea for an anniversary gift to GOT7 - with the restrictive gift regulations nowadays, most other fans/fanbases/fansites usually do donations and message books, so having the G7 Magazine in addition to the donation was a great thought! While I'm sure the boys are touched and proud of the donations, and enjoy reading message books, I'm sure they'll love looking through this magazine to reminisce these past three years. I love that it is filled with photos and lets the members see things through the perspective of ahgases (since it is written by fans). Also, I think it is a gift that will remind GOT7 of how much fans love them, because I'm sure they are aware that producing such a large-scale project would require a lot of time and effort.
In terms of the actual magazine, I really loved how there was a wide selection of articles. I also liked how these articles were spaced out by "ads" to give resting time from reading (as I had to stop at each "ad" for such a long time to stare at the eye candy from each one). To be honest, the styling in magazine photoshoots often give me a shock, but somehow, all of the pictures chosen to be included in the magazine were so nice!
What is your favourite article and why?
"GOT7 The Journey" - I loved this timeline! Great for new fans to see a summary of GOT7's album releases, achievements, and shows to watch. Great for old fans to reminisce their achievements and hard work. Everything is organized so well; I love that a timeline was used to summarize it all, so that everything is in chronological order. I also love how pictures are included to keep it visually appealing. It must have been difficult to space everything out so nicely since their schedules can be so packed at times, so good job!
Honourable Mentions (in no particular order)
"Out and About" - I love to see GOT7's interactions with other idols! Even if they are sometimes idols that I am not familiar with, it makes me so excited that GOT7 members are making new friends; I'm glad that they have friends in the entertainment industry that they can gain support from and laugh with.
"GOT7 'FLY' High Around The World" - Their "FLY" Tour was definitely special, as it was their first concert tour (excluding the Japanese concert tours). It was nice being able to reminisce these memories, whether they were from attending the concerts, streaming, seeing photos/videos, reading fanaccounts, etc. I also loved how this article was designed/formatted in a way that showed each city as a stop on their journey.
"IGOT7 Playlist" - Everyone has differences in their preferences, and it's interesting to see which songs other people chose as their favourite. It's nice to see love being shown to different songs on the album since the members work hard in producing every song.
Why do you want a hard copy of G7 Magazine?
I think the G7 Magazine would be a great memorabilia to add to any ahgase's collection. I love that it summarizes GOT7's journey in their first 3 years after debut, and I think it would be so amazing to browse through it to walk down memory lane. Also, if I happen to win this contest, I promise that I will keep this precious masterpiece in beautiful condition~
