MARK is starting his new journey and fans couldn’t be more excited!
MARK TUAN, the oldest member of KPOP group GOT7, has given us a glimpse of his upcoming projects. Let’s take a look at what the latter has been up to!
Shortly after the end of GOT7‘s contract at JYP Entertainment, GOT7 MARK opened his own YouTube channel on January 5th. His channel was an immediate success, it was massively followed by fans – reaching more than 2 million subscribers in no time. He thanked fans for their tremendous support despite the lack of content on his channel in his very first video and comments; he also hinted at the upcoming content he will create and release on said channel.

It was also revealed that MARK would move back to Los Angeles to spend time with his family. MARK had often expressed his longing to see his family that he missed dearly, the home he left back in 2010 to fly across the world and find his own path.
okay but tbh this part made me tear up.

On February 6th, MARK released a brand new video titled “a new beginning…”. The seven-minute-long vlog showed some “behind-the-scenes” footage of MARK’s last moments in Korea.
Fans could see the latter packing both his and his dog’s, Milo, stuff and moving out. GOT7 members JAEBEOM, JACKSON, and YUGYEOM are seen gathering to say their goodbyes. MARK also received phone calls from GOT7 JINYOUNG, YOUNGJAE and BAMBAM before finally reuniting with his family in Los Angeles.

Fans rejoiced and were even pretty emotional to see the group parting ways for the time being, until they figure out how to come back as GOT7 in the most efficient way.

Both the hashtag and video sat at the top of worldwide trends.
Throughout his career, MARK dabbled in various fields such as rapping, composing, designing, modeling and much more.
Fans are wondering which way he will now follow; he was able to experiment with various styles and trends in his 30 solo features in fashion magazines but he also showcased various sides of himself in his solo fan meetings in China or as a PUBG streamer.
As an artist, MARK has been extremely dedicated to his team’s craft though his confidence has a solo act has been slowly but steadily growing in the last few years. He is indeed the one behind well-loved B-side tracks such as “See the light”, “Let Me”, or more recently “Born Ready”.
