GOT7’s Jackson may act extra and goofy, but fans know that he is one of the most hard-working celebrities in Asia.
As a K-Pop idol, variety show cast-member and singer-songwriter, he is incredibly busy as one of the biggest stars in China and across Asia.
Throughout all his hard work and ambition, Jackson has recently revealed that he has several life goals that gives him the motivation to achieve success.
And now, after five years since his debut, Jackson revealed that he has finally achieved one of these goals.
Jackson had the honour of unveiling his Madame Tussaurd wax figure which was first announced at the end of last year.
He confused fans, by posing next to the wax figure which looked uncannily identical.
Jackson has previously expressed that as a child, when he first visited the Madame Tussauds museum in Hong Kong with his parents, he was awestruck from seeing all the wax figures of the celebrities from home and abroad.
Ever since then, he has been determined to make his childhood dream come true, and be just like the celebrities who he saw at the age of nine.
When Jackson finally had the honour of being invited to have a wax figure of himself constructed, he displayed his gratitude to those at Madame Tussauds.
It was revealed that he had to sit for up to eight hours, in order for him to be completely measured so that the wax figure would be a realistic simulation.
The only thing he had that day was the sugarcane juice that his father had prepared.
Still, Jackson acknowledged that regardless of how inconvenient the situation may be, it was still so unreal and incredible for him to achieve his childhood dream.
When I was 9, I visited Madame Tussauds with my family and I wished I could have my own wax figure in future too. Now my dream has come true. I hope I can present myself in perfect condition so it’s totally worth the starvation for a short while.
The General Manager of Madame Tussauds Hong Kong, Jenny You acknowledged the reason why Jackson had been selected to join around a hundred celebrities to have their wax figure constructed for the museum.
We appreciate his efforts along his music journey. This young gentleman has a strong passion for music and works hard to achieve his dreams.
Indeed, Jackson’s passion was clear during the ceremony where he talked about the incredible feeling he had for achieving a goal he has since childhood.
He made sure to thank the fans who were present at the ceremony and expressed his gratitude for their constant support and praise. He hoped that this ceremony was just as much about them.
I am particularly impressed that many fans made their way to Hong Kong to witness this significant moment with me. I hope everyone who loves Jackson Wang can go to take photos or interact with ‘me’ whenever they want. And I will come back more often to meet you all too.
On his Weibo and Instagram, Jackson revealed that this has been one of his life goals and that thanks to the hard work of his staff and fans, he has been able to tick one off from his bucket list.

In terms of what his future plans are, Jackson promised that he would continue to work hard, so that a wax figure of him can be built in Madame Tussauds all across the world, so that fans could take a picture with “him”, no matter where they are.
With his final words, Jackson encouraged his fans to always follow their dreams, just as he did.
Always follow your dream. Be hungry. Never regret on the choices you made.
You never know, with a lot of determination and hard work, you might have your own wax figure at Madame Tussauds.
