Being a K-Pop idol isn’t easy, as idols constantly have eyes on them and “need” to maintain a certain image. GOT7‘s Mark and BamBam once shared their thoughts on this.
In an interview with GQ Thailand, Mark and BamBam were asked, “Fame is dangerous, and you have to maintain your image because of it. Do you feel pressured?”
BamBam honestly shared that he sometimes does feel pressured to maintain a certain image.
He said that there are many things he has to be concerned about and that everything gets magnified because he is a public figure. Something like drinking alcohol and partying can be viewed negatively by some just because he’s a public figure.
While BamBam sometimes feels pressured to maintain his image, he also shared that he decided to reveal more sides of himself over the years.
Mark agreed with BamBam and said that he tends to be a bit careful about the things he does, especially since younger people look up to him.
