In a teaser for the Korean-American musician’s second collection for the app MindseteaJ addresses his past controversies, which seem like they might be discussed in more detail in his upcoming audio series. Earlier this year, eaJ has been slammed online for derogatory comments about soloist Jamie.

The singer had also previously received backlash over controversial comments he made during a livestream in 2021. At the time, Park made what he later described as “inappropriate” comments while playing the video game Rust during a now-deleted Twitch livestream.

“There have been a lot of people that I’ve hurt, there have been a lot of misunderstandings, but at the end of the day, I just truly always want to do the right thing,” he added.
