John Park was asked a difficult question by DJ Kim Shin Young on the July 15 broadcast of 'Kim Shin Young's Noon Song of Hope.' 

Kim Shin Young started off easy, asking the singer, "You released an album on the same day as Eric Nam. Are you guys close?" John Park replied, "We're very close. We cheer each other on for things like live broadcasts. I didn't get to call him today but I plan to call him later." 

Kim Shin Young then threw a toughie at John Park, questioning him, "Among gyopos / Korean Americans, you used to be the most popular. But nowadays, it feels like Eric Nam is trending more. How do you feel about that?

John Park answered dismissively, "I don't mind it much. Because I personally don't like the gyopo image. I just want [people] to regard me in a normal manner. To fans, I want to be known simply as 'ballad John Park.'" 

Kim Shin Young joked, "Dongpo (another word for Korean diaspora overseas). What do you think about dongpo?

Why would you ask him that? Gosh do awkward. I'm a huge fan of both, no need to compare them.

Think idiot, there are so many parks. Change your last time and differentiate, seperate yourself from the jay parks with loser stigma. Think out the box not in, run from the shephard and survive only then can one say he has done it, he's lived. The rest of them bums are sniffing ass in a line the shephard is telling them what when and where.. run my brother run from the devil shephard

WGM happened to Eric and I think John's popularity peaked when he was doing variety shows like Cool Kiz on the Block. I like both of them and hope they do well. I just hope more people listen to their music instead of thinking of them as only variety show people.
