On Tuesday, GOT7‘s contract with JYP Entertainment comes to an end. Fans, aka Ahgases, are excited for their next chapter, and rumors have been swirling that member Mark Tuan is coming stateside to continue his career. To jumpstart his solo endeavor, the Taiwanese American artist opened a brand new YouTube channel and Facebook page to interact with fans.

The big question is…. will he join Twitch in the near future? I know the video live streaming service is helping top influencers build their audience while communicating with fans in real time. A host of stars like Ryan Higa, Amber Liu (fx) and Megan Lee and even his own brother Joey Tuan are already on Twitch. It would be great if he joined to share his music and keep everyone updated on his busy schedule. I hope he seriously considers it in the near future.

In the meantime, feel free to follow Mark Tuan on all his social media accounts via his YouTube Channel: @MarkTuan

Here is the description of the upcoming production:

“TRAFFICKED is the story of Allison Riley (Sophie Bolen), a beautiful young girl with a bright future and a dream of becoming a veterinarian. On the eve of her 16th birthday, she sneaks out of her house to meet a handsome boy she met online and disappears. Her parents, Joanna (Kristy Swanson) and Case (Mark Boyd ), contact the police who assume that Allison is just out with a boyfriend. They reluctantly hire Private Investigator John Belton (Dean Cain) who has a reputation for making his own rules. Belton quickly discovers that Allison had likely been trafficked by a handsome young man she met online and that he’s on a race against time if the Rileys hope to see their daughter again.”
