On yesterday’s episode of MnetThe Beatles Code 2,” MC Kim Tae Won mistakenly asked Jay Park if he was part of 2PM, surprising everyone at the studio. 

During the episode, he asked, “Aren’t you 2PM? Aren’t you part of the group?” Jay Park used to be the leader of 2PM, but left the group in 2009 due to controversy surrounding a post he made on his myspace account several years back.

Jay Park politely stated he was not, and Kim Tae Won further unnerved other guests and MCs by asking why not. Fellow MCs started to voice their complaints as Kim Tae Won treaded on the sensitive topic. Kim Tae Won replied, “I’m just trying to make him [Jay Park] less nervous.” However, Jay Park honestly responded, “A lot of things happened back then, and so I work alone now. Working solo, instead of being part of a group, has its advantages because I get to make music that I want to try.”
