On March 27th, JYP’s divorce was officially confirmed on JYP’s official homepage.

JYP states, “I was 20 years during the time I met my first love and we stayed together for 16 years. The time we had together was the most valuable and beautiful time of my life and I deeply loved her but a few years ago, little by little we started to drift apart. When I was 20 years old, we appeared very similar to many people but over the course of 16 years we slowly grew apart and we came to understand that we had become very different people. We worried and wandered for a few years, and finally decided to separate. To the people close to me, and my fans, forgive me for not being able to keep my promise. I wanted to show you that I was a good person but it seems I am lacking. After many worries and wandering, someday I’ll repay you looking better than I am.”

Park Jin Young and his wife, Seo Yun Jung were married in 1999 and the two do not have any children. Seo Yun Jung currently runs a flower shop in Seoul.
