Jackson Wang may be known for his cheery and 4D personality with the ability to make friends with anyone and lighten the mood wherever he goes. But he is also one of the youngest and successful Asian entrepreneurs and CEO of his own agency, Chinese soloist, K-pop idol and part of the popular boy group GOT7. But before his musical journey, he was an Olympic-level fencer from China. And in his eighth year as an artist, he has decided to share his journey through a song.

The GOT7 star released ‘Jackson Wang’, a Mandarin song about his life, from a fencer to a young boy in a foreign country chasing his new dreams of becoming a K-pop idol with JYPE and GOT7 to his entry into business as the CEO of Team Wang, and Chinese musical career as a soloist and his new C-pop group PANTHEPACK. He also thanked his fans, family, friends and all those who supported him in any which way like the Chinese restaurant owner in South Korea who helped him get through his home-sickness when he was 17.
