A joke gone too far? Got7's Jackson might want to permanently forget about the most recent episode of Roommate.

After accepting — and completing — a grueling challenge to walk up 63 flights of stairs, the 20-year-old boyband rapper fell victim to a horribly cruel hidden camera prank.

Roommate producers thought it would be funny to trick the Hong Kong-born star into thinking his mother had come to visit him from his homeland.

To make matters worse, Jackson's mother is believe to have been unwell and has not seen much of Jackson since he chose to leave home for two years to pursue his K-Pop dreams in Korea.

Excited at the idea of finally seeing his mother, Jackson was instead was presented with Comedy Big League comedian Lee Guk Joo.
