  • Poppy

    A random fact, but I’m pretty sure he really likes the Pokémon Squirtle. He once said to Jimin (one of the hosts from After School Club, not BTS) that he looks like a Squirtle!

  • Wang Ga

    Jackson Wang is Fluent in Mandarin, Cantonese, Shanganese, English. And Korean he learned after he moved to South Korean to work as an Idol in JYP where he was taught the Language. He also speaks other language proficiently such as Japanese, and Thai. He can manage French to some level. Thank you..

  • Emily

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=68_uQ7y2ec4
    he himself said he speaks 5 languages. meanwhile he also learned Japanese
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wE17W2GpGvE
    as for Thai, he knows some words and simple sentences but you can’t say he’s speaking it.

  • Wang Ga

    Did I mentioned less than 5?? What I ment to say is that he learned Korean after he moved to South Korean the other languages he is proficient. ANOTHER THING THIS ARTICLE DOES NOT MENTION Zhou Ping’s his mother
    Who speaks Shanghanese, he Also speaks His Mother’s language. That’s the one I added to (their 5 ) Korean he learned later and he is proficient in the others I mentioned .. wheather you like it OR not….lol

  • Emily

    That’s why I posted the video because he, himself said that he speaks 5 languages and he mentioned Cantonese and Mandarin but she didn’t mention Shanghanese!!!
    And if it’s his mother language it doesn’t necessarily means that he also speaks it! I know persons who’s mother speaks a language and father speaks other language and the child doesn’t speak both languages but just the language of the place where they stay.
    So don’t assume!!!!!!

    As for Korean, it doesn’t matter that he learned it after he became a JYP trainee, what’s important is that he speaks it fluently!

    Also, the article did mentioned that his mother name is Zhou Ping. Read all, only then talk!
    “– His mother, Zhou Ping, is a gold medalist at the World Gymnastics Championships.
    – His father, Wang Rui-ji, was a former coach of the Hong Kong National Fencing Team.”

  • Wang Ga

    Jackson speaks fluent English, Cantonese, Mandarin, Shanghainese, Japanese and Korean… DO YOUR RESEARCH BEFORE YOU POST..PERIOD.

  • Emily

    What’s your source that he speaks Shanghainese????
    He, HIMSLF, only mentioned Mandarin and Cantonese among the Chinese languges he speaks!
    Show some real PROOF!!!! Show me an interview in which he said that he speaks Shanghainese! Don’t just assume!!!!!

  • Yunji

    @disqus_JExW7QZd58:disqus
    Can you send me a link to a video in which he said that? I also really wanna visit India one day. 😀

  • KYGtrash

    If Got7 had to choose a new leader, three of them would’ve chosen Jackson. 🙂 Real GOT7 season 1 ep 3. According to JB, he would’ve chosen him because he had the most experience in leading a team because of his fencing carreer.

  • Manda

    I’m not sure but I think he doesn’t live in the dorm anymore.

  • Nugyet :3

  • Kim Areej

    Same what i was trying to talk about… He looove to mixed it all togather …. You need to update it . 😃 Caus d he had his 3rd solo single

  • Mira Jean

    Im a new iGot7 and i watched too many videos of them since last month .. and i think i remember Jackson mention that he’s not comfortable to dance without wearing his snapback… I think its an ASC Video.

  • Cherry 🍒
