GOT7 member Jackson Wang (王嘉爾, 왕잭슨) made waves when he attended the GQ China 2021 Men Of The Year ceremony on 16th November. And we’re not just talking about his award as “All-round Artist of the Year” either.
The 27-year-old’s clothing choice (and lack of it) caused quite a stir. It ironically matched with famous celebrity and entrepreneur Yang Tianzhen (杨天真)’s, giving off the impression that the duo were a couple. If that wasn’t enough, netizens were drooling when Jackson removed his clothes for a photoshoot. Clothes on or off, he caused quite a commotion either way!
Jackson showed up to the red carpet in a striking deep-V red suit, which became an instant eye-catcher. Not only did he show off his chest, a watch being worn as a necklace was also prominently displayed. His vibrant red outfit was only matched by Yang’s beautiful flowy red dress. To top it off, the entrepreneur added a giant red bow atop her head.
Needless to say, netizens were quick to pair the two up, which caused a lot of laughter online. “Yang Tianzhen and (Jackson)’s (outfits) look like a couple’s costumes,” one netizen commented upon seeing the two photos side by side. “GQ wedding scene,” another quipped. “I didn’t know the stars would be attending the (duo’s) wedding tonight,” a comment joked. However, some defended the stars’ coincidental clothing choice saying: “Successful female bosses must wear red, and successful male bosses must (also) wear red.”
Netizens stopped laughing when Jackson’s clothes came off, however. Apparently, he was required to do a pool photoshoot and had to be greased up beforehand.
Someone took a sneaky clip of the staff oiling him down and posted it on Weibo. The clip immediately went viral as fans enjoyed the rare eye candy. Several netizens volunteered to help the idol out. “I’m here (to help)! I don’t want a salary,” one said. Another commented, “I just want to ask if there is still a shortage of staff (for) Jackson. I think I can do this job too.”
Jackson continued to show off his abs as he did the pool photoshoot with a few clips from the event also appearing on Weibo. “(His) tattoos are so beautiful,” a netizen sighed while another admired his pecs. A few even suggested that the idol wasn’t wearing pants in the water and was only in his underwear.
Clearly netizens have a preference for Jackson without clothes, as good as he looks in them. Aside from that, fans are proud of the GOT7 singer for nabbing the “All-round Artist of the Year” award. The 27-year-old has certainly been keeping busy after GOT7 ended their contracts with JYP. There were even rumours that the star had been featured in a soundtrack for Marvel’s “Shang-Chi”.
Congrats to Jackson for all his hard work! We’d also like to thank him for the eye candy ;)
