There was some controversy regarding a photo that Jay Park recently shared via SNS.
Jay Park faced some controversy a few years ago when past comments from his defunct myspace space were discovered and resulted in his leaving 2PM. Since then, he's been building a successful solo career for himself.
On February 3rd, he uploaded a photo via Instagram and tweeted:

There was some controversy in the Korean media after his photo began to spread, offending some netizens. A day after the photo was shared to the public, he wrote an apology, saying, "Sorry. I'll be more careful as a public figure."
An hour after that, he wrote a longer apology,
Anyway, I can't satisfy everyone 100%~ Whether it's my family, my label, my fans, or even myself~ Everyone has different opinions and different standings~ There is no answer, no matter what articles say~ If you hate me or love me, I'm thankful for the interest~ I'll smile even if you curse me out~! I just want to have good music, put on a good performance, and be a good artist. I want to make a situation where I can care for and help the people I love~ If you were offended, I'm sorry~ I'll put more thought into things from now on~! I'm going to work hard on my album keke ^_^
Do you think the photo was offensive?
