AceShowbiz - Jackson Wang has become a global superstar in just one night. The GOT7 member clearly stole the show at the 2017 MTV Europe Music Awards which he attended on Sunday, November 12 in London without his bandmates.
Looking handsome in a dark suit with glittery lapel and wearing a necklace, the 23-year-old singer attended the event as the Greater China region ambassador after making a successful Chinese debut with "Papillon" earlier this year. He sat next to One Direction's star Liam Payne and was seen interacting with the "Strip That Down" singer.
