GOT7 fans may be either celebrating or crying a river of tears after the latest paparazzi update. Much loved member Jackson Wang (王嘉爾) might just be off the market! The good-looking artist was supposedly seen spending the night with none-other than (G)I-dle member Song Yuqi (宋雨琦).
Today (22nd February), paparazzi “刘大锤” released a video of the duo supposedly meeting up at Jackson’s house. Apparently, shortly after Yuqi returned to her hotel in Beijing, a car had stopped by to pick her up. Paparazzi claim the car belonged to none other than Jackson’s personal chauffeur.
It had supposedly taken Yuqi to Jackson’s neighbourhood. The paparazzi also noted that Yuqi didn’t return to her hotel till the following day, where she appeared with a bouquet of roses. Jackson was later seen leaving his home for the airport and he was presumably in a good mood as he waved to his fans.
Some suspect Yuqi had spent the night at Jackson’s house, hence the roses and his good mood. Many also assumed the two were seeing each other and had been for a long time. This was boosted by a throwaway comment from NCT’s Lucas Huang (黃旭熙) which had surfaced during his scandal.
Lucas had supposedly told one of the fans he was seeing about his Hong Kong artist friend. “His girlfriend is my friend,” he was quoted as saying. “We filmed a show together and even went to get our ears pierced.” Many had thought he was referring to Jackson then as both Lucas and Jackson were filming “Keep Running (奔跑吧)”. Additionally, Yuqi was also a member of the “Keep Running” crew.
However, there are fans who argue otherwise. Some claim the car’s model and license plate was not one of Jackson’s. Others insist the photos were faked as the stars known schedule does not match with what the paparazzi said. A few desperate fans simply asked Jackson to provide an explanation, and soon.
As much as the world would like to know if Jackson is eligible or not, we can definitely understand why they would want to keep their privacy. Well, whether they be a couple or a couple of besties, we wish the duo well!
Update (Wednesday, 23rd February 2022):
Some netizens have appeared to prove that Jackson and Yuqi are dating. Apparently, they alleged that the car license plate may not be Jackson’s exact plate, however, his car plates tend to end with “633” and “217”, and coincidently, “217” is the number plate of the car in the video. They also claimed that Jackson and Song have been together since 2020 as the two have ‘couple items’ such as the same style and branded slippers and the same bracelets. Additionally, they stated that Yuqi’s clothes upon arriving at the airport and when photographed by the paparazzi were the same. She was simply wearing a coat.
Update (Thursday, 24th February):

Yesterday, Jackson’s agency in China also released a statement to debunk the false information that has been spreading online. Apparently, the video clips had been edited to make it seem like the GOT7 member was romantically involved with Yuqi.
