Park Jin-young (Hangul: ; born December 13, 1971) is a South Korean singer-songwriter, record producer, record executive, and reality television show judge better known by his stage names J. Y. Park and The Asiansoul or the initials JYP. Park rose to prominence as a singer following the release of his debut album, Blue City, in 1994. In 1997, he founded JYP Entertainment, one of South Korea's most profitable entertainment agencies. Park developed and managed highly successful K-pop artists such as Rain, Wonder Girls, 2PM, Miss A, Got7, Day6, Twice, Stray Kids, Itzy, Xdinary Heroes, and Nmixx as the former head of JYP Entertainment (May 1997-Feb 2011), as well as Mandopop group Boy Story and J-pop group NiziU.

Childhood and education

Park was born in the Korean capital of Seoul. His father worked as a news correspondent in the United States. Park moved to New York with his mother when he was nine years old, following his father's reassignment. They lived there for three years before Park went to high school in Seoul. He later went to Yonsei University, where he released his first two albums. In 1996, he earned a bachelor's degree in geology. He has a younger sister.


Park debuted as the trio boy group "Park Jin Young and the NG(New Generation)( )", with producer Kim Soo-chul and members Cho Hye-sung and Yoon Tae-jin. Their debut album, 'Floating Time( )', was a flop. Park's fame in the Korean music industry began in 1994, when he made his solo debut with the song "Don't Leave Me" ( ) from his debut album Blue City. He met composer and long-time collaborator Bang Si-hyuk during this time. Park established his label and agency JYP Entertainment in 1997, when it was known as Tae-Hong Planning Corp(). That same year, EBM (now SidusHQ) tasked him with preparing the members of its project group for their debut; the five-member act was eventually dubbed g.o.d and debuted two years later. The success of g.o.d as one of the country's most popular and bestselling groups in the early 2000s would cement Bang and Park's reputation as hitmakers even further.

Park debuted in the American music industry in 2004, becoming the first Asian producer to do so, producing music for Will Smith, Mase, and Cassie.

Park and Jackie Chan formed the I Love Asia Project in May 2008, in response to the earthquake tragedy in China. Park, Chan, and Korean director Kang Je-gyu collaborated on the song "Smile Again" to raise funds for relief efforts in Sichuan. The song featured a slew of Korean celebrities, including actors, singers, and figure skater Kim Yuna. On June 30, the music video was released on JYP Entertainment's YouTube channel.

Park became the first Korean songwriter, along with RAINSTONE, to reach the Billboard Hot 100 Chart with the Wonder Girls hit "Nobody," which debuted at No. 76 in October 2009.

Park released his single "No Love No More" on December 3, 2009. Park released the duet track "Someone Else" with Brown Eyed Girls' Ga-In on April 22, 2011. The song reached number two on the Gaon Digital Chart and sold over a million copies. This was his first album in nearly two years. Park's success with "Someone Else" was followed by the release of the single "You're the One" on April 28, 2012. The song peaked at number three and sold over 1.5 million copies.

Park released the song "Who's Your Mama?" in 2015, which featured Jessi from Lucky J. The song became a hit, knocking fellow labelmates Miss A off the top of the Korean charts. Later that year, he took part in the Infinite Challenge Yeongdong Expressway Music Festival with comedian Yoo Jae-suk, forming the duo Dancing Genome and releasing the song "I'm So Sexy."

Park released a single titled 'Still Alive' in 2016. During the same time period, he appeared in the Conan O'Brien special 'Conan in Korea,' recording a song titled 'Fire' with Conan O'Brien, Steven Yeun, and Park Ji-min, with Wonder Girls and Twice appearing in the music video. On April 9, the song was released on Conan O'Brien's YouTube channel. Park also produced the cast's single 'Shut Up' for the Korean variety show Sister's Slam Dunk in 2016. Upon release, the song unexpectedly achieved a real-time chart all-kill. On September 22, 2016, it was announced that Park would produce the title track for girl group I.O.I's final album before disbanding. On October 16, 2016, the song "Very Very Very" was released. When it was released, it was a commercial success, earning a perfect all-kill on the Korean charts and topping the Gaon Digital Chart. Park released a song titled 'Fever' in 2019 with Superbee and BIBI.

Park's autobiography, Live for What?, will be released on August 11, 2020. Park followed up with a new single, "When We Disco," a duet with Sunmi. This was his first project with Sunmi since she left JYP Entertainment and the Wonder Girls. The song peaked at #3 on the Gaon Digital Chart, becoming his sixth Top 10 hit.

It was announced on April 26, 2021 that Park and Psy, the founder of P Nation, will collaborate to form a new boy group each in Loud, which will premiere on SBS on June 5, 2021.

According to the agency, Park released the single "Groove Back" on November 21, 2022, but the music video was released three days earlier.
Park later confirmed that he will perform a solo concert in Japan for the first time in 7 years on January 28-29, 2023, at Yokohama Pia Arena MM.


JYP made his acting debut in Dream High in early 2011, for which he was nominated for New Actor of the Year at the Baeksang Arts Awards. In January 2012, he appeared in Dream High 2, the sequel to Dream High.

Park made his film debut in 2011 as Choi Young In, a man on a mission to hand-deliver $5 million, in Five Million Dollar Man, alongside Jo Sung-ha and Min Hyo-rin. On July 19, 2012, the film was released.


Kim Sin-il, songwriter, filed a lawsuit against Park on February 10, 2011, claiming that "Someday," sung by IU and composed by Park, plagiarized Kim's song "To My Man." Kim claimed that the beginnings of the two songs, including the jazz chords, are nearly identical and filed a lawsuit against Park for 110 million won. Park denied the allegations, and despite several court hearings, no settlement was reached. The Seoul Central District Court ruled on February 10, 2012, that "Someday" was plagiarized from Kim's song and ordered Park to pay Kim 21.67 million won in damages. Park filed an appeal, but on January 24, 2013, the Seoul High Court ruled against him and ordered him to pay Kim 56.93 million won. The previous rulings were overturned by the Supreme Court in 2015 in light of new evidence demonstrating that the melody and chord progressions were very common, citing Kirk Franklin's 2002 song "Hosanna."

Private life

Park Jin-young married Seo Yoon-jeong in 1999. The couple announced their divorce in March 2009. On October 10, 2013, he married a woman nine years his junior. Park's daughter was born on January 25, 2019, and he wrote "This Small Hand" for her and his father, with a documentary-style music video released on February 9. The music video revealed that his father was suffering from Alzheimer's disease and could no longer recognize him. The song's proceeds were donated entirely to the Green Umbrella Foundation (ChildFund Korea) to benefit children in need.

Park is a baptized Christian who leads weekly Bible studies. Park tried several religions to fill the "void in [his] heart" after his divorce before discovering Christianity.

On December 9th, 2022, Park gave 500 million won to Samsung Seoul Hospital and World Vision, an international relief and development NGO (NGO).
