The source says of the idol star, "Jackson has always been in great shape but he wanted to be more lean, taller looking for this comeback. Before he was about 154 pounds [70kg] and now he is 139 pounds [63kg]."

"Jackson has put in a lot of cardio work and feels he in the best shape he's ever been in. He's worked really hard."

As well as physical training, the "A" star  also received a slight makeover in the hair department. The snapbacks and dark hair have gone in favour of a summery bleach blonde do.

"The hair was Park Jin Young's idea but he was happy to try something new," says the group insider. "It's turned out great!"

Got7 will return to the K-pop scene on July 13 with their new single "Just Right" which was written by JYP CEO Park Jin Young and is a hip-hop infused pop track. Check out the teaser below.
