Park Jin-young (born December 13, 1972), also known as J.Y. Park or JYP , is a South Korean music mogul, musician, and record producer. Beginning as a singer, he became a record producer and, ultimately, the CEO and founder of JYP Entertainment, a major artist management/record label of Korean pop music.
Park was born in Seoul. He graduated from Baemyung High School and he earned his bachelor's degree in geology from Yonsei University.
In 1992, Park debuted as a group called 'Park Jin-Young and the New Generation,' but it was not successful. In 1994, he debuted as a solo singer with the new album Blue City featured the song "Don't Leave Me", and it was successful.
Park has released seven albums. He followed Blue City with his second album Tantara in 1995. His third album Summer Jingle Bell came out in 1997 and featured the hit song "She Was Pretty". His fourth album Even After 10 Years (1998) featured the song "Honey", and his seventh album Back To Stage (2007) featured the song "Kiss". While maintaining his status as a successful artist, he has also composed and produced over 31 charting singles and 25 albums for various groups in South Korea including Rain and Wonder Girls.
In May 2008, Park collaborated with Jackie Chan to form the "I Love Asia" Project, prompted by the earthquake tragedy in China. Park is a capable English speaker, as evidenced by the various interviews he has conducted in the U.S.
On December 3, 2009, JYP released his single, No Love No More.
At midnight of April 22 KST, JYP and Ga-In released a duet track titled, "Someone Else." This is the first song JYP released in about two years.
On April 28, 2012 JYP released his new single, "You're the One"
On February 10, 2011, songwriter Kim Sin-il filed a lawsuit against Park claiming that "Someday", sung by IU and composed by Park, plagiarized Kim's song "To My Man". Kim alleged that the beginnings of the two songs, including the jazz chords, are almost identical and sued Park for 110 million won. Park denied the allegations, and no settlement was reached after several court hearings. On February 10, 2012, the Seoul Central District Court ruled that "Someday" was plagiarized from Kim's song, and ordered Park to pay 21.67 million won in damages to Kim. Park appealed the ruling, but on January 24, 2013, the Seoul High Court ruled against Park and ordered him to pay 56.93 million won to Kim.
In early 2011, JYP made his acting debut in Dream High, for which he received a nomination for New Actor of the Year at the Baek Sang Arts Awards. In January 2012 he was seen in the sequel to Dream High called Dream High 2.
In 2011, Park made his film debut as Choi Young In, a man on a mission to hand-deliver 5 million dollars, in Five Million Dollar Man with Jo Sung-ha and Min Hyo-rin. The film was released on July 19, 2012.
