6. Jackson used to be a fencer and nearly went to the Olympics
Jackson used to be a fencer for Hong Kong's fencing team. The idol explained he was preparing for the 2012 London Olympics when he got scouted by JYP Entertainment. He was a very good fencer with a high win percentage in his matches. During the 2010 Chinese Games, he won second in the U20's Men's saber competition. He was also ranked 11th in the world for youth fencing at one time.
Before DEAN did his own thing with his own crew, he was a young teen rocking alongside none other than Korean rapper, Keith Ape.
