Rumor about Jackson joining 'Infinity Challenge' false after all?

Rumors about GOT7's Jackson joining 'Infinity Challenge' might just end at rumors.

When fans saw Jackson filming for the variety show, they had assumed that Jackson might be taking over Kwanghee's spot after the latter leaves for military duty. However, it seems that Jackson was just on the show as Kwanghee's friend. Kwanghee had been going around various labels to show his connections, and Jackson was his JYP Entertainment connection.

Kwanghee asked him, "Do you think I'd fit well into JYP Entertainment?" and Jackson answered, "Not really. Aren't you more YG [style], hyung? With the Big Bang hyungs." He was only on for a short time, but was still adorable nonetheless.

Of course, it's still too early to say if he won't be on the show after all, but at this time it looks like rumors were just rumors.

I think Jackson would be a good fit for a new Running Man cast. He's young and athletic, he's funny and awkward, he's competitive. I suppose Infinity Challenge would be an good fit too. I've just never watched it much because I don't like the old guys on it.

I remember that time when Jackson was famous. Everyone thought he was funny and stuff. Idk what happened. People moved on to Hani or Kangnam? LOL Who is next?

Now he's back to being only a part of got7. He used to stand out before.

The article was written because of one stupid screen cap of the latest episode of IC LOL... of course the 'rumour' was totally unfound, simply a product of lazy journalists

Most likely Jackson won't be able to able to join IC as a fixed cast member. GOT7 is still very much active and will be busy with promotions throughout the year so I doubt it compared to Kwanghee where ZE:A wasn't as active with group promos.

Honestly thousands and thousands of American fans miss out on everything this was a fan meeting so it wasn't really a concert but there's too many people and fans here still trying to get bts tickets but they won't add anymore dates or cities her in the states

Of course it wasn't going to happen. Jackson is too busy with other things. Kwanghee worked because ZE:A wasn't super busy or super popular, so the members have done other things - like acting in dramas and variety. I think Henry would do well - especially since his membership with SJ has always been underused.

thank god.  Jackson is not funny.  he's a nice guy and talented, but he does not deserve a IC spot, which is one of the best jobs in variety.  kwanghee went thru so much to get that spot, and to think they're going to hand it over to Jackson who only girls that stan him think he's funny is a pipe dream.  IC has a older audience than just idol stans.

occasionally he can be unintentionally funny, but he is not a funny person tho.

imo he's one of the best rising rookies as a variety idol. he knows how to tease other people without being rude, he can easily selfdiss himself, he's so genuine that it's literally impossible for him to really offend someone. but ofc, funny is subjective i guess

I don't mind that he isn't going on Infinity Challenge with all those creepy cranky old men. I think he'd be a better fit for a new Running Man. I can't watch IF because I cannot watch Park Myeong su or Jeong Hyeong don. I don't care for either of them.

He's funny because he's awkward and often clueless. He's hyperactive, blurts things out, almost like burp. As for Kwanghee another reason I don't watch IC is because I hate the constant ragging on him. I know it's supposed to be funny but for me it just doesn't do it. Kwanghee gets props for always being the fall guy, the self deprecating one.

awkward is not funny tho. i'm a huge variety fan and i've seen him on everything. he makes me cringe sometimes with how touchy feely he is, and his white knight persona. i mean i get he is a emotional and kind guy, its just way overboard for my tastes, outside of him not being funny to me. i liked him on Roommate but that was largely due to the GOD guy. i also like how he's athletic unlike most nerdy idols.

and when i say nerdy idols, it drives me NUTS watching Law of Jungle and seeing these male idols who are so incapable at physical things.

i do agree he might be good for a new RM because of his athleticism but a new RM IMO will end up a flop like family outing 2. even jae suk isnt the God of variety ratings he used to be.

Well Law of the Jungle kind of separates the boys from the men. It's no wonder that athletic guys can become a stars there, like Jackson and Jota. Yeah, even Hani turned out to be tougher than some of the boys I've seen on there. That's the show that made me like her. I watched Roommate too. It's mostly responsible for why I have a deep aversion to Seo Kang joon. He's a big dud but because people think he's pretty he's everywhere. Boy has zero personal charisma.
