Jokwon Advises “SIXTEEN” Contestants on Getting Park Jin Young’s Favor
Having been a part of JYP for over 10 years, including his seven years as a trainee, Jokwon revealed his secret behind getting on Park Jin Young’s good side.
On the first episode of Mnet’s “SIXTEEN” which aired on May 5, the competition for picking the members of the new JYP Entertainment girl group “Twice” finally begins.
Two groups, the “major group” made up of seven girl group candidates and the “minor group” consisting of nine trainees, must prepare a stage based on a keyword they chose.
Dahyun, a major group participant, makes a visit to 2AM’s Jokwon to ask for advice.
“What did you do when you were our age,” she asks Jokwon.
“I, too, was selected through an audition. I practiced with Sunye and G.Soul back in the days,” he says. “I must admit, I had the most star material back then.”
“My tip for you is to just compliment Park Jin Young no matter what,” he jokingly adds.
