In the past, many assumed that GOT7‘s Jackson grew up in a wealthy family due to his father being a former member of China’s national fencing team.
During an interview, Jackson revealed that this couldn’t be further from the truth. He revealed that his family didn’t have a lot of money during his early childhood.
The only reason that they were able to start living in a better house was that his hard-working parents saved almost everything they earned.
Jackson’s parents also had a simple reason why they decided to work so hard.
Jackson also recalls moments in his childhood where his mother would just lie on the floor due to exhaustion. After resting for an hour, Jackson’s mother would then help Jackson and his brother with their homework, which could last until 6 A.M.
After helping her children with their homework, Jackson’s mother would wash up and immediately go to work. Jackson couldn’t help but get a little emotional thinking of his mother’s sacrifices.
Jackson also reveals that his mother would only eat a couple of slices of bread during her job, but come home with many side dishes for Jackson and his brother.
Jackson’s mother didn’t even want to eat the side dishes, as she wanted her children to have all of it.
