Park Jae-hyung (Korean: 박제형; born September 15, 1992), better known as Jae (Korean: 제이),[1] is a Korean-American musician, singer, songwriter, composer, and streamer, best known as a vocalist and electric guitarist of South Korean rock band Day6. Prior to joining Day6, he gained attention in South Korea as one of the final six contestants in the first season of the singing competition television series K-pop Star.

Early life[edit]

Jae Park was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina and moved to Cerritos, California in early childhood.[2] He graduated from Cerritos High School and later studied political science at California State University, Long Beach. Throughout high school and university, he ran a YouTube channel, "YellowPostItMan", where he uploaded vocal-and-guitar song covers as a hobby.[3]

In 2012, Park took a leave from university to compete as a singer-guitarist in the inaugural season of K-pop Star. Though he was eliminated from the competition in sixth place[4], JYP Entertainment (JYPE) offered Park a contract at the end of the show to join the company as a trainee for an upcoming band. Park accepted the offer and moved to South Korea.[5]


Park debuted on September 7, 2015, as a vocalist and electric guitarist of JYP's first rock band, Day6. The band debuted with EP The Day.[6] In March 2016, the band released its second EP, Daydream, for which Park participated in the making of two tracks: "Blood" and "First Time". Park continues to actively participate in the making of numerous tracks following their Daydream album.[7]

On June 28, 2016, he became an MC of Arirang's After School Club, alongside Park Ji-min and Kevin Woo, formerly of U-KISS.[8] He officially graduated as ASC's MC on July 17, 2018.[9]

In September 2017, Park started a Youtube channel called JaeSix (later renamed eaJ). [10] He began a personal music project on the channel in 2020, releasing self-written solo tracks under the name eaJ. [11]

Park was a guest DJ every Monday on Arirang Radio's Monday Music Access with singer Bernard Park. His last appearance as a guest DJ was on April 30, 2018.[12]
