Speaking of which, “Arrival” was final installment of GOT7’s trilogy. P’s Himchan and Jongup also found the spotlight on their group’s comeback, the emotional, trance-tinged “Wake Me Up”, which saw leader Bang Yongguk make a welcome return after a mental health hiatus.
Lead single “Never Ever” featured somewhat patchier production, but lesser-utilised vocalists Yugyeom and Jinyoung came to the fore and nailed their performances.
