"Come and get it, GOT7! Hello, I'm Yugyeom!"
Kim Yu-gyeom (김유겸), commonly known by his stage name Yugyeom (유겸), is a South Korean singer, songwriter and dancer who debuted as a member of GOT7 in 2014 and one half of its duo sub-unit Jus2.
He started dreaming of becoming a singer and a dancer watching performances of Big Bang and J.Y. Park when he was little. He was especially interested in dance, and started dancing when he was 14, joining the Body & Soul crew: with them, in 2010, he won second place at the national competition Adrenaline House Dance Battle. While attending the first year of middle school, he took part in the Hidden Performing Arts Tournament, where he danced to Beast's "Shock". His older brother filmed the performance and posted it to Cyworld, where the footage caught the attention of Kim's cousin, a dance teacher, who invited him to join her dance school. Another teacher at that school was a dance instructor for JYP Entertainment, and this led him to an audition for the label. He became a trainee in late 2010-early 2011.
In January 2021, Yugyeom, along with the other group members, parted ways with JYP Entertainment though remaining as GOT7. Rumors soon followed that Kim would join AOMG. It was then confirmed on February 19th that he had officially signed an exclusive contract with AOMG. His dance visual video of "Franchise" by Travis Scott featuring Young Thug and M.I.A. came with the announcement.
On June 3rd, it was announced that Kim would make a mid-June comeback, his first release as an AOMG artist which also features fellow label mate, Gray. June 11th and 17th were announced as the release dates. Kim released a 7-track extended play titled "Point of View: U", for which he collaborated with hip-hop artists DeVita, Loco, Gray, Jay Park and Punchnello. Gray produced five of the songs, while Cha Cha Malone two. Yugyeom not only composed and wrote lyrics for every track of the album but also took part in producing the album as well. The pre-release single, "I Want U Around" featuring DeVita, was accompanied by a music video. A music video for "All Your Fault" (네 잘못이야) was also released on June 17th featuring Gray.
