Meet the handsome idols of GOT7 before you watch Dream Knight
DramaFever's newest short series, Dream Knight, is complete! Starring all of the K-pop group GOT7, you may not be familiar with these handsome male idols, so let us introduce you. Here are 7 facts about the group to get you prepared for Dream Knight:
DramaFever fans should recognize JB from his roles in Dream High 2 and When a Man Loves. He started off as part of the JJ Project with Jr. in 2012, and they both tied for 1st during JYP Entertainment open auditions. In Dream Knight, his character is considered sharp and sensitive, which highlights his actual calm and aloof nature. He is often called "harabuji," or Grandpa, because of his blank facial expressions and unwillingness to act cute.
2. Jackson Wang
Fans of the variety show Roommate will recognize Jackson. Hailing from Hong Kong, he is known for his crazy antics and outgoing personality. He is a former member of the Fencing National Team, where he won 1st place in the Asia Junior and Cadet Fencing Championship in 2011. He also speaks six languages fluently. Talk about talent!
Mark is originally from Los Angeles, California and is part of the group's rap line. He speaks English, Cantonese, and Korean and is known for being shy and quiet. His skills in martial arts tricking are amazing to watch.
Jr. was cast alongside JB in both Dream High 2 and When a Man Loves as the friend character, and considering they were also part of the JJ Project together before being part of GOT7, it's good that they get along! Jr. loves dancing and choreographed the moves for their track "Follow Me." His stage name, Jr., is actually a play on the fact that he shares the same name with JYP Entertainment CEO Park Jin Young, but there is no relation!
BamBam is basically adorable... it's obvious. He was born and raised in Thailand before heading to Korea to follow his dreams. He rivals Jr. in the dance department, having won two competitions before joining the group, including a "Rain Cover Dance" competition where he took 1st place! They also have a friendly competition over who is better at aegyo.
The members of GOT7 have stated that Young Jae has changed the most since their trainee days, but since they only have trained for 8 months before debut, it is hard to see how! His adorable eye-smile helped him gain the vote from his sunbae, 2PM’s Nickhun, for the best looking face in the group.
7. Kim Yu Gyeom
Yu Gyeom is the maknae, or youngest, of GOT7. While fans describe him as a "lovable bear," he is known for his maturity. He has amazing street dancing skills, often showing off his krumping and popping as often as he can!
It seems to me that the writers/producers of the series really took the personalities of the group members into account when deciding their characters of the show. So tell me, are you a fan of GOT7?
