GOT7 members Mark and Jackson showed their mature personas in the December issue of Sure.

The duo posed together while clad in leather jackets, sporty sweatshirts, silk scarfs and lots of denim. They tried serious expressions to fit the lighting's warm color scheme.

During the interview, Jackson talked about the competitive nature that is necessary to succeed in the entertainment industry. He stated, "You always have to be nervous. There are a lot of people who believe that living as an idol is a competition. In this one year, there have been hundreds of groups that have debuted. We are living in that environment too. I think if you lose your nervousness for a moment, it's possible that you might not be able to compete anymore."

Mark added, "That's right. That's why we constantly have to try something new."

Despite the fast-paced nature of fame, Jackson views the intense atmosphere as a positive feature since it forces singers to constantly improve. Meanwhile, Mark asserted that in time one adapts to the changes quickly.

He explained, "You get to know how the system works, how the broadcasting industry works. We sympathize with others who do the same thing that we do and we give encouragement and support to one another."

In other fashion news, GOT7 recently had a late-night pictorial for the November issue of W Korea.
