Jay Park~

Actually I'm not interested in solo debut, but no..... Not for Jay Park... My first Jay Park song is Tonight, when I was playing SongPop... At that time I was like "Who the hell is Jay Park anyway?" Then I just randomly go look at his music videos... Well he's cool.... I mean HOT!!! That guy has tattoos! Have you seen him?? Eye candy!

Okay back to topic....

Jay Park (Korean name: Park Jaebeom; Hangul: 박재범; Hanja: 朴載範, born April 25, 1987) is an American singer, dancer, rapper, b-boy, music producer, songwriter, composer, model, choreographer and actor of South Korean descent, and a member of the Seattle-based b-boy crew Art of Movement (AOM). Park rose to fame as the leader of South Korean boy band 2PM, formed by record label JYP Entertainment in 2008. In September 2009, Park left the group and returned to his hometown, Seattle, after comments he wrote about Korea in 2005 when he was a 17-year-old trainee, taken out of context and severely misinterpreted by the Korean media, were leaked by a netizen who hacked his Myspace account.
His first appearance since his departure was a cover video of B.o.B's hit "Nothin' on You" with his own rap and lyrics, filmed in his bathroom, and posted on YouTube in March 2010, which went viral and reached over 2,000,000 views in less than 24 hours. Park returned to South Korea in June 2010 for the filming of Hype Nation, while being represented by Digital Media Wire's CEO and entertainment attorney Ned Sherman. Park signed a contract with SidusHQ, one of the largest agencies in South Korea, in July 2010, re-debuting as a solo singer and an actor.
Park's cover of "Nothin' on You" led Warner Music Korea to release his first EP, Count On Me (Korean: 믿어줄래; Revised Romanization: Mideojullae) in July 2010, a cover EP of "Nothin' on You", with lyrics written by Park himself, debuting at number one on the Gaon chart. In April 2011, Park released his first Korean mini-album Take A Deeper Look, which went on to become one of the most successful albums of the year, garnering sales of over 70,000 copies, and winning a "Disk Bonsang" (Records of the Year) at the 26th Golden Disk Awards. In February 2012, Park released his first full-length Korean album New Breed, debuting at number one on the Gaon chart and reaching the position twice, and sold over 80,000 copies in ten days.

He is influenced by the work of American artists he grew up listening to, such as Usher, Michael Jackson, Ne-Yo, Chris Brown, Ginuwine, Musiq Soulchild, Justin Timberlake, Eminem, Jay-Z, Nas, Tupac, Dr. Dre, and Canibus. Park credits Usher as his idol and as one of his biggest influences, to whom he started listening since 6th grade. He also cites Michael Jackson as his role model, as "he is the best". He cites both Usher and Michael Jackson as singers and dancers who influence him vocally and in dance, as he wanted to dance like them, looking at their music videos. Park also cites Chris Brown as an inspiration, and wants "to be a singer who can be good at both singing and rapping like him". Park began listening to hip hop music when he was in second grade, after one of his cousins let him listen to Warren G's "Regulate".
