Jay Park recently made an appearance on the November 10th episode of "Talk Show Taxi" on tvN. He talked all about his family, career, and his ideal girl. The interview touched on some topics and issues that were quite personal such as the reason he left 2PM and his feelings were when leaving Korea.

He also said that he realized many fans were not happy with Jay publicizing the incident since he got accused of being an attention-grabber.

Lee Young Ja, responded that she wouldn't be able to work in a tire shop if she left a celebrity life. Jay disagreed since he was really blessed to be a celebrity but also he didn't feel the need to still be one. He was just thankful there were still people around him that cared.
