Recently, GOT7‘s Jackson Wang was announced to be performing at this year’s THE MATCH Bangkok Century Cup as part of the Fresh Air Festival at Rajamangala Stadium.
Thailand is known as GOT7’s second home, so it is easy to guess that Thai fans were excited to see another member of GOT7 in Thailand so soon. Both BamBam and Mark Tuan held sold-out fan meetings earlier this year.
Jackson announced his departure from Korea on Twitter, giving Thai fans enough time to go to the airport and wait to greet him. Fans began lining up hours in advance to get a good view of his arrival.
These photos of the line waiting for Jackson is making me so emotional… He deserves all the love and thai birds.. I cant thank you all enough!! 😭❤️🔥❤️🔥❤️🔥 #WelcomePJackToThailand #WelcomejacksonToThailand @JacksonWang852 pic.twitter.com/mdFNIttJHU
