However, he dropped a bombshell with a piece of information that many Malaysians aren’t aware of: Jackson’s actually an ex-Olympian!

Two ex-Olympians, I hold a racquet, he holds a ‘sword’. I now hold baby boys, he holds microphones.

In case you didn’t know, Jackson was actually a fencing pro athlete before venturing into the K-pop industry.

Social media blog Amino reported that Wang was trained in fencing during his teenage years with his father and made it into Hong Kong’s official junior team as an Olympic-level youth sabre fencer before becoming a singer in 2011.
