Fans expecting to see Got7’s Jackson Wang at the KCON 2015 festival in Los Angeles are going to be very disappointed.

Although no reason was given, according to GOT7’s promotional schedule, the "Just Right" rapper has filming commitments on SBS’ Law of the Jungle and SBS’ Inkigayo.

KCON is the largest Korean entertainment convention in the US and this year’s festival is host to major acts such as Shinhwa, Super Junior, Block B and girl group AOA

Some fans have shelled out upwards of $800 for their tickets and the lack of Jackson’s appearance is likely to be met with devastating disappointment.
