Soon after, the group revealed that they have two things to share with fans – bad and good ones. Particularly, Mark shared the bad news first by saying, “The show is coming to an end.” Gaining a lot of “awws” from fans, Jackson then quickly followed it up by sweetly assuring fans with the good news: “But GOT7’s shows (concerts) never ends.”
Seriously not wanting the show to stop, the Filipino Ahgases screamed their hearts out with “Walang Uuwi”. Looking confused with the local words, the boys then tried to copy it. And not to our surprise, the great “Mr. Double B” Bambam succeeded to pronounce it well.
Upon knowing its meaning, which is “no one’s going home” in English, Mark added: “We have a new home. It’s here.” Moreover, the boys humorously declared that their next song will be titled “Walang Uuwi.”
Just when everyone thought that the energy has reached its maximum level in the MOA Arena, the idol group came back to the stage to sing their sweet “Lullaby” to fans.

As for Jackson, he likewise expressed how much he wanted to return to the Philippines again by saying, “We don’t know when we’ll be back but one thing’s for sure. We will tell JYP that we need to come back here, promise.”
Wanting to express himself fully, JB has given his message in Korean. “Sorry that we weren’t able to come back sooner. We’ll prepare hard to return as better artists,” GOT7’s charismatic leader said.
Aside from showing their grateful hearts to fans, Youngjae, Jinyoung, and Yugyeom also sent their gratitude to their team members, staff, management, and promoters. Moreover, the boys even applauded the crowd for their undying patience, love, and support.
