GOT7‘s Jinyoung, who is beloved both as a singer and actor, reacted to being described as “Innocent” and associated with “First Love.”
The triple threat idol appeared on Marie Claire Korea‘s YouTube channel on November 16, where he reacted to his profile, made by fans.

He gives off a clean and innocent vibe and has strong facial features, and looks like a handsome actor.

Jinyoung thanked his fans for the flattering description but hinted that he might not be as innocent as he looks.
I’m very thankful for the kind words, but I don’t think I am that innocent. Please don’t be fooled by the way I look.
The idol then reacted to another description by a fan stating that he “Reminds me of my past first love.” Jinyoung reacted to the description by thanking the fan and stating how much he appreciated the kind words.
I’ve said this before in a past interview, but I really appreciate people seeing me in this (as a first love image) light.
In a previous interview with the magazine, when asked about his “first love” image, the idol gave a more candid response, stating that there were many idols who gave off similar vibes.
I’m so thankful, but every idol group has a member giving off those vibes, so it isn’t as special.
The idol also spoke about his blossoming acting career. When asked how he felt about the praise he’s received for his acting, Jinyoung replied that although he is thankful, he still feels there was room for improvement.
It really makes me glad. Although I am very grateful that audiences look at me favorably, in my eyes (my acting) needs improvement. But because of (the audience’s) kind words, I get excited looking for ways to improve. Thank you for making me evaluate myself.
Jinyoung debuted with the popular idol group GOT7 in 2014. Recently, the idol has been spreading his talents by transitioning into acting, receiving rave reviews for his role on Yumi’s Cells 2.
