Originally hailing from Seattle, Jay Park's music career began in 2004, with his music rooted in his passion for dancing and hip-hop and dance music. Taking a suggestion from his mother to audition for a talent search by South Korean conglomerate JYP Entertainment, Jay Park was selected to be part of a Korean boy band as an idol, traveling to South Korea to receive training in dancing, rapping, singing, and the Korean language under the strict supervision of JYPE. His first brush with fame was his stint as frontman of the South Korean boy band 2PM. Eventually, he moved to pursue and be rebranded and re-debuted as both a solo singer and a rapper, which brought him to the world of the underground hip-hop culture in South Korea.
J.Y. Park has 65 number-one hit songs charting in major categories across Korea, Japan, and China, where he is credited as composer, singer, and record producer. In 2015, the prestigious MAMA awards presented him with the "Best Male Artist" and "Best Producer" awards. He is also one of the first K-POP musicians credited as record producer for illustrious US music icons such as Will Smith, Mase, and more.
Jay Park blazed trails for the current wave of K-POP moving that has swept across Asia and is now taking the world by storm. Korean pop star Patti Kim" calls Jay a "born entertainer" and The New York Times quoted the president of digital music distributor DFSB Kollective, describing Park as "not just an artist, but also his own PR agent, fan club president, and TV network." J.Y. Park is indeed a "scene stalwart" of Korean R&B — an influential artist, highly respected in Korean, and a recognized global icon.
