Jay Park Talks About His Experience With Discrimination And Being Himself No Matter What

Jay Park participated in a photo shoot with magazine GQ Korea and shared his mindset on confidence and self-worth.

He began, “When I lived in the United States, people would say things like, ‘Why are you playing basketball?’ or ‘Go study math.’ But I wasn’t like that. ‘Idols should be like this.’ ‘Rappers should be like that.’ ‘Asians should be a certain way.’ There’s no such thing like that. Everyone’s different. I knew what kind of person I was. Even when everyone doubted me or looked at me with bias, I acted like myself without trying to please others. People who disregarded me now look at me in the way that I think of myself.”

Regarding the title of his world tour “SEXY 4EVA WORLD TOUR,” he said, “I imagine myself in the way I want to be seen, [which is] to have [people] tell me I’m sexy. I behave thinking that I’m a certain person. Then, even if people don’t think of me that way at first, they end up seeing me like that in the end. That’s why being sexy is a matter of confidence.”

Meanwhile, Jay Park kicked off his world tour in Seoul and will begin performing in other regions in September.
