Singer Jay Park recently posed for 'High Cut' magazine, revealing his new blonde hair and some fresh ink as well.
He admits its the first time he's ever colored his hair and that "it was supposed to be a concept" for his new album, but he "couldn't because the release was pushed back" due to his filming obligations for 'Immortal Song 2'. However, "I decided to just do it anyway, and this morning I woke up and didn't even recognize myself. I've never dyed my hair, so this feels pretty new."
He pointed out and explained the ones on his left arm, saying, "The middle one is actually my face, on the right is a new one- the Korean flag, and on the left is the Space Needle in Seattle (Jay Park's hometown).
Jay Park admitted to being a 2NE1 fan, and had this advice for younger idols: "When you're in the business long enough, there comes a point where you truly begin to enjoy being on stage. Only then will you develop your own style of music and dance."
Among the TV programs he enjoys watching, SBS's 'Running Man' is currently one of his favorites. "I would definitely be on the show if they asked. Actually, even if I don't get to be on the show, I would want to try it out with my friends."

There's a hot new girl group in town, and they just released their debut digital single "Syndrome" on August 17th. Chocolat– a five-member girl group, three of which have American fathers and Korean mothers — made headlines for being bi-racial members, but that's not all there is to these girls.
When they sat down for an interview with StarIn, they stated, "If we thought we were going to be "just another girl group", we wouldn't have even started this whole thing".
They continued, "All five of us are very unique individuals and we possess different talents. The five of us together make a powerful group."
"We are thankful for the extra attention, however, we want people to know that we too are Korean and we don't want to be treated any differently."
Jae Yoon and Min Soa also stated, "None of us have ever gone under the knife. We are 100% natural beauties. People think otherwise because we are mixed, but we really haven't gotten any plastic surgery. Our agency's president told us no, anyway."
"Expectations are high for us so we were worried we wouldn't be able to live up to them. But we are working hard so that we do not disappoint. "
They concluded, "We don't want to stop at Korea; we want our names to be known all over the world. That's our main goal. …In the beginning, we worried we wouldn't be able to pull this off, or we wouldn't be successful. But the important thing is that we won't give up until we're known worldwide. We want to show you everything we've prepared so far. Watch out for Chocolat!"
