It seems like JJ Project is like a sub-unit to this GOT7 boy group. JB debuted and JR did too as a members for JJ Project. Maybe that's the reason why JJ Project didn't had a comeback since it was supposed to be a sub-unit/project group even though their album succeeds. Haha. Maybe that's the reason for the word 'PROJECT' in JJ Project. Well, if I'm wrong, then correct me :D Haha! Goodluck :)

So looking forward to this! JR, I'm waiting <3
