Jay Park is a Korean American singer, songwriter, rapper, record producer, model, dancer, choreographer, entrepreneur, actor and a member of the Seattle-based b-boy crew, Art of Movement, and founder and CEO of the independent hip hop record label AOMG and his new global label H1ghr Music. He also signed with the record label Roc Nation, becoming the first Asian American to do so.
Park started as a b-boy and dancer, known for his charismatic performances and stage presence. Park was described as a "born entertainer" by Korean pop singer Patti Kim, 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."
Park initially rose to fame as the leader of South Korean boy band 2PM, formed by record label JYP Entertainment in 2008, after having previously been a trainee for four years. In September 2009, Park returned home to Seattle after comments he wrote about Korea in 2005 as a teenager were publicized by the Korean media; Park officially left the group in early 2010.
