Kim Yugyeom first climbed the K-pop charts as the youngest member of GOT7, then made his solo debut in 2021 with the Number 1 digital single "I Want U Around." He was born in Seoul, South Korea, on November 11, 1997, and began performing with GOT7 under his surname, Yugyeom, in early 2014. Although he served as the group's main dancer, he also played an active role in the GOT7's songwriting, with 2017's "See the Light" marking his first composition for the group. During the next three years, he contributed more than a dozen songs to GOT7's catalog while also appearing on platinum-selling albums like 2018's Eyes on You, 2019's Spinning Top, and 2019's Call My Name. He also formed a side project, Jus2, with his bandmate Jay B. Jus2's debut EP, Focus, was released in March 2019 and peaked at Number 2 in South Korean, Number 7 in Japan, and Number 6 on Billboard's US World Albums chart. Meanwhile, Yugyeom laid the foundation for his solo career by independently releasing songs like "Just a Little More" online. He ultimately found mainstream success as a solo artist during the summer of 2021, when "I Want U Around" — a duet with R&B artist DeVita — became the top-selling digital single in South Korea. The song appeared on Yugyeom's solo debut, Point of View: U, which was released in June 2021.
