Jay Park will be mentor on "Dancing 9"

Singer Jay Park will join the second season of the Mnet dance competition show “Dancing 9,” beginning in June.
He is set to be a dance mentor for the team Blue Eye.
 
“Jay Park is well known for establishing himself not only as a good singer but also as a dancer,”
said an official at CJ E&M, the company that operates Mnet.
“Since he is actively engaged in the B-boy scene, we thought he would be able to give helpful advice to the participants in the show.”
Even before he debuted in the boy band 2PM in 2008, Jay Park was a member of the Seattle-based B-boy crew Art of Movement.
 
Launched last year, “Dancing 9” was acclaimed for featuring talented dancers from a diversity of genres, like hip-hop, jazz, contemporary
and even traditional Korean dance.
“Dancing 9” divides participants into two teams, Red Wings and Blue Eye, with each team getting some big-name mentors.
Aside from Jay, actor Kim Su-ro is also on team Blue Eye this season.
The Red Wings will be led by veteran singer Lee Min-woo of the classic K-pop band Shinhwa, and Ha Hwi-dong, who was voted last season’s top dancer.
The broadcaster said more “master” mentors would be revealed soon. The first episode airs on June 13.

Jay Park Hilariously Handles Live Broadcast Accident


Jay Park experienced the charm of live broadcast when an accident occurred.
On April 27, Jay Park and 4minute’s Heo Ga Yoon led a skit on tvNs’ Saturday Night Live Korea, where Jay Park played a Korean American whose Korean isn′t so great, while he was on a blind date with Heo Ga Yoon.
 

 
 
Although he tried his best to impress, Jay Park mixed up simple Korean words by leading a rated R conversation by mistake, catching Heo Ga Yoon off guard. Heo Ga Yoon tried her best to correct every inappropriate thing Jay Park said on accident, but as the levels of Jay Park’s language began to rise, Heo Ga Yoon left the table.
The other people, who overheard everything Jay Park said, became so appalled that one woman (Jung Myeong Ok) even dumped her cup of water on Jay Park’s face, Korean drama style.
However, a long silence ran after, surprising everyone on set, including Jay Park, as the skit was supposed to end with music playing.
 
 
 

 
 
When nothing happened, Jay Park continued to play his misunderstood and confused character, ad-libbing, “Why isn’t this ending? Where is the band?”
The audience and viewers alike applauded Jay Park’s save at what could have been a worse broadcast accident, saying, “Jay Park’s ad-lib was funnier than the skit,” “It’s a good thing Jay Park entered the SNL team,” and “He certainly fits the show.”
Meanwhile, 4minute was the host for the night.
