She thanked everyone who supported her in the course of her project.
“This has been a wild and crazy journey and I couldn’t have done it without all of y’all’s support. I’ve met so many amazing people through this account, and I’m thankful for all the support from my friends who helped me come up with puns, take photos, and honestly just listen to me fangirl and spam all y’all on my story LOL.
“Of course I don’t actually expect him to come to prom with me LOL and I wouldn’t want him to fly all the way over here in the middle of such a jam packed schedule.”
For now, Zhang vows to continue supporting Wang and GOT7.
“I’m so proud of him, and I hope people will continue supporting Jackson Wang and GOT7!”
