Jay Park: New Breed of Kpop Idol?

Jay Park (Park Jaebeom) is a Korean-American solo Kpop artist. Originally a member (and leader) of popular male Kpop group 2PM, Park left the group in 2009 after some controversy about his alleged confession of unhappiness about  working with the group and references to a “personal mistake” he committed while working under the JYP Entertainment label. After leaving 2PM, Park returned to his hometown of Seattle, Washington (United States) to regroup.
