We have a theory here at KPK, and I think the world should know. We believe that Taeyang IS Jay Park. Have you ever seen them together? Yeah, think about it. Hmmm, Taeyang is a Korean artist who raps and works out a lot (we can tell, look at this picture! you don’t get abs like that unless you got a lot of time on your hands and you are on a mission)
Stay with me…..soooo Jay Park is a Korean artist who raps and works out a lot (that’s a “I’ve been working out in the prison yard” physique. C’mon, where else can you get your tats and abs on?)
See! You can’t even tell that’s Jay Park (because, you know, it’s Taeyang, BECAUSE THEY ARE THE SAME PERSON!!!).
Really, I tease with love. But Jay Park’s album cover for “Take a Deeper Look” does bring up some interesting issues. Not only can you not tell it’s Jay Park/Taeyang, but you can’t even tell that this person is Korean. He’s definitely working a 50 cent kinda thing here. This could be my cousin. He could be anybody’s cousin. I guess that’s why he wants us to take a deeper look!
But is it intentional, to gain more support for Jay Park for people who may think they may not be into an Asian rapper? Just sayin’. Something to think about.
Meanwhile I just wonder how Jay Park and his other personality Taeyang split their profits! 🙂
