After convincing his parents to let him audition and train for a Korean entertainment company in exchange for becoming a junior fencing champion (which he did in fact do 💁♂️), he debuted as a charismatic rapper in JYP's explosive K-pop group, Got7, and immediately charmed his way into fans' hearts with his abundant talent and humor.
After penning and composing a number of songs with Got7 (e.g. "Boom x3"), Jackson started releasing his first solo songs, "Papillion" and "Okay" in 2017 with his company Team Wang. In the second half of 2019, he featured on 88rising's Head in the Clouds II and released his debut album, Mirrors.
My biggest takeaway from following his journey? Between the constant traveling (pre-coronavirus times, of course) and different arenas of work he's involved with, this man must never sleep! But after our phone interview, it's profoundly clear that he loves every second of what he does — and wouldn't give it up for the world.
