Jay Park's interview with CNN GO on May 17, 2011 [Sidus HQ]
Singer Jay Park recently interviewed with global news channel CNN.
CNN GO, which covers cultural news from around Asia, interviewed Park last week to get a glimpse into his singing career and the reason for his popularity that has reached into America and Europe.
“It’s good right now. I came back with the music that I wanted to do, R&B and hip-hop, and the fans they love it, everyone else loves it so I’m lovin’ it so that’s good,” said Park in the 180-second video clip.
“Even if it was turbulent couple of years I just tried to keep it positive throughout the whole thing cause’ you know nothing goes on forever.... and everything turned out great so I’m happy.”
Park, whose Korean name is Park Jae-beom, debuted as a member of 2PM in 2008 but parted with the group early last year after stirring controversy over remarks he wrote regarding Korea during his trainee period.
He then kicked off his solo career late last year after signing with major talenthouse Sidus HQ and has released several single albums since.
Currently, Park is also filming a movie titled “Mr. Idol” helmed by director Ra Hee-chan, about making an idol star out of a young man who dreams of becoming a vocalist of a band, set for release in the latter half of this year.
