Last year for his birthday, Jay Park announced that he would be featured in new YouTube documentary Jay Park: Chosen1.
This documentary is a YouTube Original series that highlights the struggles artists go through when trying to break into the industry. Jay’s story was particularly of interest to the producers because he was from a foreign country.
Beginning with his days as 2PM’s leader, the series follows his career as a kpop idol and his success as a solo artist here in the States. When questioned about his decision to include 2PM, producer Luke Choi said he thought it was important to express that you need to believe in yourself and have courage in order to get over hurdles.
Jay Park: Chosen1 premiered May 1, 2019. Check out the first episode here!
