Ahgases (GOT7’s fandom) have nothing to worry about as GOT7 is booked and busy. Youngjae was the last member to go solo last week. And after the vocal powerhouse’s solo debut with the smashing hit ‘COLORS from Ars’, we have more news. Fans wondered what the idol actor of the group, Park Jinyoung was up to after weeks of radio silence. Well, it looks like he has landed the main role in the film ‘Christmas Carol’.

After GOT7 left their label JYPE in early 2021, Jinyoung has been focusing on his acting career. He was in the popular dystopian K-drama ‘The Devil Judge’ in the first half of the year. And in the midst of shooting, he also dropped the surprise single ‘Dive’ as a gift for waiting fans. Well, we finally know what he has been doing since then. On October 8, it was announced that the idol has landed himself twin roles in ‘Christmas Carol’, an action-thriller film based on Jo Won-gyu’s novel of the same name.
