The JYPE founder recalled his earlier days auditioning for SM Entertainment.
"I failed every audition because of my outer appearance," said J.Y. Park. He continued, "I auditioned with 'Don't Leave Me' a song I composed myself and Lee Soo Man hyung let out a heavy sigh as soon as he saw my face."
J.Y. Park then explained, "However, Lee Soo Man hyung called me out again asking me to sell my track 'Don't Leave Me' to him but I refused. That was the saddest audition ever in my entire lifetime."
