Park Jin Young Almost Eliminated Jackson from GOT7 But Was Held Back by Staff Members
Park Jin Young revealed how he came to change his view of Jackson.
During the December 16 broadcast of SBS’ Roommate, Park Jin Young said about Jackson, “My first impression of him at the audition honestly made me tilt my head. It wasn’t too good. The reason was because he worked too hard.”
Park Jin Young shared, “Being natural is the most important but he worked hard to the point of looking unnatural. He even had the tendency to dance faster than the beat, which I hate the most. He couldn’t fix that, so I was half in doubt.”
“But the rest of the casting team told me, ‘He’s just nervous. He’s not like that usually. Please give him a chance.’ I found out later that he has the natural style that JYP likes,” explained Park Jin Young.
Park Jun Hyung then said, “He’s very similar to me. My older sister said, ‘he’s just like you when you were in your 20s,’” and Park Jin Young agreed, “That’s right. You two are similar. You guys are also similar in that you get attached to people.”
