The 2016 summer season was very busy for Got7, the leading K-pop boy group under JYP Entertainment right now. Back in March, they released their fifth extended play (EP), a mini-album titled Flight Log: Departure featuring the featured track title "Fly" as well as "Home Run." The former earned Got7 numerous first place trophies on M! Countdown, Music Bank, Inkigayo, and The Show too.

Eventually, Got7 continued the promotions for Flight Log: Departure with a worldwide tour called the Fly Tour. The tour was divided up into three different legs, two in Asia and one in the United States. Though the tour started out with JB, the leader of Got7, being absent at the first concerts which took place at the SK Olympic Handball Gymnasium in Seoul, South Korea, on April 29 and 30, the tour overall was a success.

The situation pertaining to Jackson was originally reported on Korean news outlet Naver as well as updated on the JYP Entertainment Fan Board. According to a statement provided by JYP Entertainment on September 1, Wong Ka Yee or Jackson Wang, better known simply as Jackson, was involved in a car crash in the morning. He was on his way to the airport when he ended up in an accident caused by a sasaeng IGOT7 fan following him.

Right after the news of Jackson being involved in a car crash was reported, numerous photos of Jackson allegedly after the accident popped up on social media. According to AllKpop, fans assumed Jackson suffered a hip injury while he was being taken to a nearby hospital for examination.

"We'll [JYP Entertainment] be able to determine his activity schedules based on the results [of his examination]. The health of our agency's artists is our first priority."
"The fan caused Jackson's car accident is not even a fan."

"To think it's because of a fan's car. How traumatizing."

"Are you sure you didn't follow him around to bother him, not because you liked him if it's to this extent?"

"Even if you are a sasaeng fan, if you like him, shouldn't you be careful? Sasaeng fans are really thoughtless."
