Park Jin Young Clarifies Dating Ban for JYP Artists



Park Jin Young, the founder and CEO of JYP Entertainment, has clarified the agency’s dating policy for its singers.

[Papa JYP Sets the Rules...]In a tweet that he posted on April 22, Park Jin Young explained that, “JYP does have a dating ban… I tell my artists that for three years after their debut they shouldn’t date or meet friends, but just focus their lives on practicing. In other words, after three years, established artists don’t have a dating ban.”

Park Jin Young’s statement clears up previous confusion regarding a dating ban for JYP artists. After rumors of JYP group miss A’s Suzy and actor Lee Min Ho’s romance began to swirl, Park Jin Young suggested in a press interview that his agency didn’t enforce a dating ban, saying, “that’s between them. It would be quite sad if an agency had to control the dating lives of its singers in order to make money.”


I know that's an old picture, but I wanted to convey the dad feel that JYP gives me when it comes to his children. It's nice he's made a statement about it especially when people keep spreading rumors about Jackson and Youngji {LET THOSE KIDS LIVE}. I can understand the policy as well; focus on building your career... THEN bone away.

This writing lineup is pretty much my ideal, Puer Kim, Jonghyun, YJS, inhouse Mystic composer Postino! I'm assuming Suran is this one from Lodia, and Lucid Fall is a pretty cool indie musician I especially like this OST he did

I am a bit surprised 'Wind' isn't the title because Beenzino but the MV (to be released on the 26th) looks like a lot of fun!

Park Jinyoung Reveals His Thoughts on Suzy and Lee Min Ho’s Relationship


(x)

[I don't worry about dating in itself...]Singer and producer Park Jin Young recently opened up about miss A Suzy’s relationship with actor Lee Min Ho on “Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook” for the first time since the release of their dating reports.

On the broadcast of KBS’ music program “Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook” that aired on April 17, Park Jin Young appeared as a guest to promote his new track “Who’s Your Mama?” and to discuss various topics.

During the interview segment, host Yoo Hee Yeol brought up the topic of Suzy, saying, “I think many people are curious about Suzy dating.”

In response to the mention of Suzy, Park Jin Young shared, “To be honest, I don’t worry about dating in itself. What worries me more is if [Suzy] dates a bad person. But [Lee Min Ho] seems like a nice guy. It may be a little too early to judge, but that’s what I think.”


[What I tell my artists to avoid is anything that isn't upright.]

"What would there be to be mad about? I should only be mad if an artist did something wrong, for example doing something that would harm their body, but as long as it isn't breaking the law, I'm okay with it. What I tell my artists to avoid is anything that isn't upright. The first thing I worried about regarding Suzy dating was whether he was a bad kid or not. Whether someone's your friend or lover, anyone bad will influence your life in a negative way. The kids are still young so all I want is for them to meet nice people and have nice relationships."

-

1. [+309, -28] He totally thinks of Suzy as his daughter ㅋㅋㅋ heartwarming

2. [+266, -20] I think it's right for him to worry about that first considering Suzy is young and hasn't been in a proper relationship and he's also her CEO and main authority figure. If I found out my little sister was dating, I'd probably worry about what type of person the man was too.

3. [+199, -29] He's truly the best entertainer, full of wisdom with an upright character~

4. [+14, -1] A good mindset of a CEO

5. [+18, -2] "Something that harms their bodies" ㅋㅋㅋ YG diss

Article: Park Jin Young, "How pitiful would we be be if Suzy made money without even being able to date?"

Source: Mydaily via Nate

"How pitiful is the agency if they tried to make money off of their artists by restricting their dating lives. If Suzy brings in a negative income, that's for her to deal with it. It's a result of her decisions. But she is not someone who will be affected by those things."

-

1. [+221, -10] I never liked him before but I think he's cool ㅋㅋ unlike another company who won't let you date until you're 30 ㅋㅋ

2. [+187, -7] A CEO like him is rare nowadays

3. [+177, -3] This company may not make a lot of money but they seem like a clean (as proven by the tax agency) company that does good for its artists. Sunye getting married was horrible for WG but how many companies can support their artists marrying the person they love and creating a happy family? All of the artists who left them are always going on and on about how nice JYP is.

4. [+20, -0] Doesn't matter how family-like your company is, it boils down to action like this

5. [+14, -0] He really seems close with his artists

I originally had a long comment i was going to post right here, but it started to look longer then this post, so i'll just wait for this to get posted and hopefully get first comment. In the meantime, i leave you with the beautiful JYP nation. <3

The soundtrack's really great. I love Junho's song. I saw the movie this week and it was hilarious. There were so many funny scenes and I swear I almost peed my pants. If you go to the CJ Entertainment website, check out and see if it's playing in any theaters near you in the US or Canada. If you're able to go and see it, I definitely recommend it. I'm going to try to drag my sister to go see it with me again this weekend, I enjoyed it that much.
