On the recent Chuseok special, MBC's 'Flower Boy Bromance,' GOT7's Jackson appeared with his close friend, Ahn Hyo Seop, a former JYP trainee and current actor.


They recalled when they first met with Jackson saying to Ahn Hyo Seop, "We entered [the company for training] around the same time.  Honestly, when I first met you, I pretended to be cool."

Ahn Hyo Seop replied, "I did think you were cool," but then added, "At the time, I thought you were a gangster.  Your hair was blonde and even then, you went around wearing sleeveless shirts," causing laughter.


In the interview session, he stated to the production crew, "At the time, he had his hair dyed orange.  I came from Canada at the time and thought that anybody with dyed hair was a gangster."

    why? it makes perfect sense. I'm Korean-American and when I picture an Asian gangster or delinquent I imagine someone with spiky blonde hair, wearing a sleeveless shirt or one of those cheesy patterned color shirts, and with a a menacing look on their face. I'm not sure what gangsters and delinquents in Korea look like today, but that's how you'd stereotypically imagine 1 back then and you'd of course get scared when what you see from movies or hear is right in front of you when you actually go there lol.

    1st of you sound like a fucking ignorant, racist pig. 2nd of all, your argument makes absolutely no sense. What does the stereotypical look of Asian gangsters have absolutely anything to do with being Asian or a Westerner? Of course Westerners would not associate dying one’s hair as being a gangster, because that’s not how gangsters are portrayed in Western societies. But we do, like any country, have our own stereotypical images of other social groups. We associate dreadlocks, sagging pants, gold chains, and tattoos with being a gangster, we associate a girl wearing a super short skirts or shorts as being a slut, we see Asian girls as being an exotic sex symbol, we associate Blacks and Hispanics as being ghetto and illiterate, Middle Easterners as being terrorists etc. Stereotyping a certain group is something that is embedded in us as humans, it has nothing to do with being a liberal state. And as such, other countries also have their stereotypes of other races and the social groups within them. It’s not always necessarily their faults as education systems around the global lack programs and classes that delve deep into cultural awareness. THEREFORE, as a WESTERN, all Ahn Hyo Seob had to visualize an Asian gangster was what was portrayed in dramas or films or what not that he saw. And which is why I said it made sense. 3rd off, YOU are completely contradicting yourself and being a hypocrite. You state that nobody in modern society in Western countries would stereotype gangsters because we’re a liberal state and well educated (btw if you want to talk about education systems, Korea is more advanced than Canada). And yet… here you are putting YOUR OWN stereotypical views onto me as a Korean American and assuming that because I am ethnically Korean, I share the same values and morals as Korea. First off, being Korean American just states that I identify myself as ethnically Korean but nationally American. I was born and raised in the United States and am very liberal in my opinions. Being ethnically Korean does not define who I am as a person or my beliefs. You’re just being overly patriotic and like any other stupid Westerner who isn’t educated, think that Westerners are better than other countries and that we’re number 1 because we’re free and liberal! Just shut up. By the way, it’s hard for anybody to believe that you genuinely know what you are talking about or stating when you can’t even use proper grammar to construct your sentences. And with that, BYE FELICIA.
