GOT7's Jinyoung talked about promoting under his real name.


GOT7 were guests on KBS COOL FM's 'Park Ji Yoon's Gayo Plaza' on March 16. On the radio show, Jinyoung explained first why he first promoted as Jr., saying, "My real name is Park Jin Young. I'm in JYP Entertainment, and I have the same name as our producer. Since we're in the same label, it was weird to use the same name."

He then said, "But then I wanted to promote under my real name. I wanted to show him that I've matured."


Do you prefer Jr. or Jinyoung?

Good on you mate! I admire & respect people who are proud of their heritage & chose to keep their stage names Korean like Yoona, Taeyeon, Seolhyun, Eunji etc..etc... I reckon choosing a Korean stage name is admirable esp when you were born in Korea. More so applause to those born overseas like Somi who proudly chose to keep her Korean name, unless your true name is Western to begin with like Ailee & John Park then that's ok. No offense but some people just bloody try so hard to be Western/Caucasian both in looks, personality & skin color. I reckon be proud of the skin & race you're born in, so good on you!

No, I meant John Park, the singer whose real name is John Andrew Park from Illinois. He auditioned in American Idol.
