These days, idols are known for their jam packed schedules, filled with promotional events, overseas concerts, and music show performances. However, in the midst of them, there is one idol who is especially busy. The idol who is countlessly traversing back and forth from China to Korea to Japan – GOT7’s Jackson.
GOT7 started their overseas activities in 2014. First, from 2014 over to 2015, they starred in their SBS MTV reality variety program “I GOT7,” and then embarked on their incredibly popular web drama “Dream Knight,” which was a joint project between Youku-Tudou and JYP Pictures. Jackson also starred in the outdoor sports TV program called “Real Hero” and “Korea-China Dream Team” for Shenzhen TV.
Jackson also became the MC for the Chinese version of the show “Please Take Care of My Refrigerator” and steadily raised his star power in China. Furthermore, he currently stars on Hunan TV’s “Sunday Is Tasty,” showing his immensely busy week as he must fly back and forth to keep up with his schedule.
Not only this but GOT7 is also on Japan’s NHK educational channel as Korean teachers, providing more opportunities for them to meet with their fans. On January 21, starting in Sapporo, GOT7 started their Japan tour, and went to Osaka, Tokyo, Fukuoka, Nagoya and concluded in Chiba.
As busy as Jackson and GOT7 are overseas, they are also just as busy domestically in Korea. Jackson is an MC for SBS’s “Inkigayo” and with BamBam also stars on jTBC’s “Where Is My Friend’s Home.”
What’s next for GOT7? They will soon drop their new mini album “Flight Log: Departure” and will be holding their first ever solo concert “FLY IN SEOUL” on April 29 and 30. They have also recently announced their summer USA tour “FLY IN USA” and will be visiting Dallas, Chicago, New York, Atlanta, and Los Angeles for this tour.
