Jay Park Returns to Variety TVPosted: March 10, 2011
Jay Park (Jaebum) will be filming a “gorilla date” for KBS‘s “Entertainment Relay,” on March 11th. This is a big step for the former idol, who is making his first broadcast since leaving 2PM and returning to Korea. The question is, will he mention 2PM?
Probably not, but it’s hard to say what will happen. Now, representatives from Jay’s current management, Sidus HQ stated, “Park Jaebum only thinks well of 2PM and there’s absolutely no hard feelings or resentment. Nonetheless, every time, we plan on holding back with just a few positive words.” They also stated that they hope fans have “good sense” for this filming, as Jay will be out in public for filming.
With this filming for broadcast, the filming of the movie “Happy Together,” and a planned April release of a music album, it seems like Jay is taking the right steps to have a solid year and a positive comeback into the spotlight.
This year, on February 17th, Jay left a statement a message board, “Because of my own mistake, I left 2PM. 2PM members had no wrong doings causing my departure, but rather I was suffering from a big ordeal [at the time],” and “I’m sorry to Producer Park Jin-young for disappointing him.”
To this, JYP Entertainment answered on February 22nd, “With a thankful heart, we accept Park Jaebum‘s apology.”
What do you think of Jay‘s cautious return to celebrity? Will he be able to be successful the second time around?
