GOT7’s Mark Tuan Facts; "the flying member"

Share it Please

Since I’ve got too much spare time on my hands, I have compiled a list of Mark facts extracted from various interviews, radio appearances, social media and such. This helps me keep up with my idols, in  some ways, so I think I'll continue to update this overtime as I watch and learn more about Mark.

I'm simply compiling what I've seen/heard, some of these could be completely wrong or misunderstood. I'm not interested in Mark's pre-debut life nor his personal life for that matter. I also CBF stalking down his family, friends, and private social media accounts. Those shouldn't be that hard to stalk down if one knows how to utilise the correct google word searches.

Anything in brackets (personal opinion) are my personal opinions and should not be taken as facts. 

1.   Mark's favourite food is hamburger and all kinds of meat.

2. Like skateboarding and snowboarding.

3. Lived in Brazil and Paraguay before.

4. Was born in L.A but moved to Brazil & Paraguay, when he came back to L.A he had to learn English again. (I feel your pain boy~)

5. Appeared briefly with JB in Dream High 2 (turns out I first saw him back in 2012).

6. Trained for 3.5 years.

7. Comes from a Christian family (Thanks to (to god) & Papa Tuan’s mentioning that he was at church when Mark called)

8. Shares a room with Jackson (2014, IGOT7 episode 4 and 5).

9. Nominated as the group's visual by the members themselves.

10. Mark is the best at Martial Arts Tricking in GOT7 because he practiced it the most.

11. He likes horror movies. Sixth sense scared him a lot when he was little, but now he isn’t affected (K.will's Youngstreet, A promotions).

12. Mark is was initially left handed but parents got him accustomed to right (Papa Tuan)

13. When asked to praise himself, Mark praised himself with "baby face".

14. To his parents: I will keep working hard, you don't have to worry much. (First album message)

15. Attempted to save a fan from falling light.

16. Totally ninja, appeared in many performances pre-debut. These includes 2PM’s stage and Dream High 2 as JB’s back up dancer.

17. Eats chicken at 2am (Mark's instagram!)

18. Family nickname: little cock (because he was born in the year of the chicken), someone told Mark this via ASC's live, making Eric all flustered (Papa Tuan & the fan who tweeted ASC).

19. Unexpected twist in character from on-screen to off-screen.

20. Teases the other members a lot in contrary to his 'quiet' image on-screen. He teases Yugyeom the most (ASC GOT7 A promotion). 

21. Eats really well, inhaled two lunch boxes in one go.

22. He is made of cheese. When a fan asked how she could be Papa Tuan's daughter in law Papa Tuan directed the question at Mark, when Mark was asked the same question he directed the question back at his father. The pain Mark's fans go through.

23. In a Japanese interview , Mark revealed that he pretty much didn't know anything when he first entered the company.

"When I first became a trainee, I've never sang, danced, or rapped before, so after coming to Korea I started learning everything from the beginning. Starting from square one, honestly (speaking), was very difficult. While all of the other trainees were good at singing and dancing, I was the only one who couldn't do anything so that point in time was very difficult (for me)." 
(Interpreted from Japanese subs, the gist of it)
