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.

They named themselves after the 1994 movie “Nell” starring Jodie Foster and Liam Neeson; Nell is a young girl raised in isolation who must interact with people for the first time – the group felt that they were doing something similar with their music career.
