′Roommate′ Teaser Causes Tears in 5 Seconds Because of GOT7′s Jackson
After delivering little bits of fun, SBS′ Roommate had viewers crying due to a moving teaser for the next episode.
On December 16, SBS′ Roommate had all the cast members preparing for a Christmas party, inviting the people closest to them.
Lee Guk Joo, Kara′s Young Ji, Lee Dong Wook, Ryohei and the other members all invited their family and close friends, but there was one member who couldn′t. It was GOT7′s Jackson from Hong Kong. Although he misses his mother very much, Jackson really couldn′t do anything about inviting her, who lives in Hong Kong. It was also especially worrying for Jackson to promote in Korea, while his mother was sick in a very far away place.
Park Jin Young, JYP′s producer, stepped up for Jackson by secretly bringing Jackson′s mother to Korea.
"I felt so bad for Jackson that I brought his mother from Hong Kong. Jackson doesn′t know. During the party, when we′re singing, let′s have her come out as a surprise," suggested Park Jin Young.
Jackson has become the official 4D character of Roommate, showing his always bright and free-spirited personality, earning positive responses from the public. Even his sudden actions and words that pop out are received warmly. Although always playful and silly, Jackson changes every time someone mentions his mother. As she is currently sick, his worry, longing and sadness are very visible.
Earlier in the show, a Roommate member joked that his mother was here and he believed it in a heart beat. Although his disappointment was great due to the trick, Jackson burst into tears upon actually seeing his mother.
Due to this, the next episode of Roommate is expected to draw many tears. Although only five seconds of the scene came out in the teaser, Jackson showed intense tears after hearing that his mother was here. When his mother actually stood in front of him, Jackson burst into tears, unable to control them. Lee Guk Joo and the other members also began crying upon seeing Jackson and his mother.
The short teaser of Jackson reuniting with his mother also had viewers tearing up. The December 23 broadcast is being anticipated to see how the bright and refreshing Jackson tranforms into a young son who longs for his mother.
