On August 28, GOT7 posted a special video message 'For Jackson, From True Friends'. In the clip, Yugeom, JB, Youngjae, BamBam, Jinyoung, and Mark each take turns to explain what Jackson means to them individually and for the group.
Yugyeom states, "We can't leave out any members but we really need Jackson because we're so happy with him." BamBam also said, ''Our team is perfect because Jackson and the other members exist." Next, Jinyoung emphasized, "Jackson is someone we can't live without." Youngjae adds that GOT7 is one.
Recently, netizens have been making up rumors about Jackson's departure from GOT7. The idol star responded with fury and demanded people to stop asking when he'll be leaving the group.
Currently, Jackson is in China promoting his first solo single ''Papillon'.
