  • 주디

    His favourite drama of all time is IRIS and he bought all the episodes and used to secretly watch it in class in high school (He mentioned this on the Got7 VliveCH+)

  • dream

    jinyoung is 175

  • Pepipeachnyoung

    Jinyoung is not a rapper, he used to be a rapper back in JJP era in 2012, and he’s the visual along Mark (all the Hard Carry episodes clearly caption that).

    Jinyoung is so savage but has the kindest heart, he’s a very caring person (that’s why he is the mother of the group), he is also such a gentleman. He deactivated his twitter account btw, and the only member who don’t get verified on instagram because well idk why he does not want that, LOL. He finally dyed his hair brown in 2017!!

    His last appearance in k-variety was in Master Key episode 4 and 6 (with Jackson). He is not only cameo in Legend of the Blue Sea, but he portrays the young lead male therein.

    For GOT7, Jinyoung wrote This Star (Mad Winter Edition); wrote & co-composed Can’t (Flight Log Departure) and Mayday (Flight Log Turbulence); co-wrote & co-composed Paradise (Flight Log Arrival) and Firework (7for7).

    For JJ Project Verse 2 album, Jinyoung co-wrote Tomorrow Today and The Day; co-wrote and co-composed On&On and Don’t Wanna Know (both with JB), and Coming Home.

    ps: he’s my ultimate bias, i love him so much!

    In one of his facts you putted 2105 instead of 2015 🙂

  • abha singh

    He wouldn’t do anything without JB “i won’t do anything without you.” jinyoung, got2day 2015

    “if there’s no hyung, there won’t be me. I would not have persevered until today” Jinyoung, igot7 2014

    in simple words he follows JB well.

    They have a special relation with each other according to JB.
    “it is 각별하다 (special).” – jaebum on their relationship, melon radio ep 2

  • stranger

    i notice that in jinyoungs earlier photos he has a mole on his left chin/jaw area. his mole is not present now. does anyone know what happened? or if he got it removed, and why? or if its just makeup. just curious.
