Woman Who Asked GOT7’s Jackson Wang to Prom Every Day for 365 Days Gets Bittersweet Ending



Elizabeth Zhang, the high school senior who asked Jackson Wang to prom, ended her 365-day Instagram project in stunning portraits of herself with a cardboard cutout of the popular GOT7 member.

“Your fav power couple takes on prom,” she captioned a set of six prom photos.

While Zhang failed to score the long-sought date with Wang, she’s thrilled about completing the project and hopes that it helped others get to know the K-pop star better.

“Posting every day has been a struggle, but I wanted to make it through all 365 days and show people how much Jackson has impacted my life and millions of others around the world! Along with my posts and videos on my Instagram stories, I really hope this account helped more people know about Jackson and GOT7 and see how hardworking and talented they are,” she told NextShark.

Zhang amassed nearly 5,000 Instagram followers with her on-point image editing skills, putting Wang next to her wherever she was and vice versa.

Wang has achieved various accomplishments since Zhang started her project, from opening his own studio to big endorsements.

He also released his new single, “Dawn of Us,” last month.

“Seeing how much Jackson has accomplished in this one year has been so amazing. From creating his own label and producing songs to endorsing the biggest brands in the world like Fendi and Pepsi, Jackson has worked so hard, and I’m so glad he can finally share his own music and show the world the different sides of him,” said Zhang.
