GOT7's Jackson dropped his first solo single "Papillon" over the weekend, so to celebrate we're shining the spotlight on GOT7's energetic beagle!

7. He can't handle spicy food

And we can't handle his reaction to eating spicy food!

6. He was once gifted strawberries from Girls' Generation's Taeyeon!

But not until he had eaten half the box! 

5. He is a fan of black clothing!

To be fair, Jackson can wear any colour and still look good!

4. He has astigmatism, meaning that his vision can get blurry

Luckily his eyes are still lovely to look at!

3. He is fluent in 6(!) different languages

Jackson is able to converse in Mandarin, Cantonese, Korean, Japanese, English, and French!

2. He may be GOT7's rapper, but Jackson himself doesn't think he's a rapper!

To paraphrase Jackson, he is "just a person who raps!"

1. He was part of Hong Kong's National Fencing team before becoming an idol

He may have swapped his sabre for a microphone (and a possible chance at the Olympics), but Jackson is still pretty handy at fencing after all these years!
