Jackson then explains, “My father did not think much of it when I told him that I wanted to become a singer. However, when I brought the actual contract, he was so surprised.”
He also reveals, “Regardless of whether or not I could succeed, I just wanted to try a lot of things.”
Jackson also goes to share, “My friends who prepared for the London Olympics have participated in the competition. A close senior of mine have even won the gold medal. However, I was just a trainee back then, so I was not doing anything. I did not know how to sing, did not know how to dance. I did not know anything, and I had no plans. I went back to Hong Kong. However, the team could not accept me at that point anymore. I did not know what I was doing that time, so I was very upset.
He also adds, “It was really difficult. However, I did not regret it.”
