Korean singer-turn-producer Park Jin-young (better known as JYP) is making his comeback to the stage after 6 years of hiatus. He held a mini comeback party on Nov 15 in Seoul before performing on Mnet’s Korean Music Festival (MKMF) a day later.

I know some JYP fans will welcome his comeback, but I would prefer him to stay as a producer instead… he has been working wonders over the past 6 years as a music producer.

Besides, Korean music scene has changed quite a lot in the last few years… I am not sure if Korean fans would still accept the extremity of JYP’s music and performances.

Below is JYP’s latest music video, “Kiss”… not recommendable for underage.
