No doubt South Korea is having their "moment" in the world right now and fans felt it fair to attribute the success to Parasite director Bong Joon Ho and K-pop group BTS for simultaneously breaking barriers in the film and music industry. Both paved the way for history to be made, that's certain.

Korean-American rapper and former 2PM member Jay Park acknowledged that in his tweet, while also comparing what he has done for Korean wave in terms of hip-hop: "What bts has done for kpop what jay park has done for k hip hop what bong jun ho director has done for the korean film industry..... all very different lanes but all historic none the less and if u disagree u just a hater," it reads.

He began sharing his sentiments after his resurfaced 2019 interview talking about being put on the same category with BTS gained mixed reactions.


"Ok so im seeing bts fans feelin some type of way. What bts has done is historic. Breaking all types of records its crazy and inspiring to see. Plus they live streamed listening to my song my song yacht when it came out so extra cool points for that," he responded.

Park further explained the struggles he has faced: "When it comes to hip hop though “kpop” does not have the most authentic image and thats just the truth. So me trying to make things happn in that field and also being asian ive come across some difficulties was my point in the interview."

Jay's other tweet "there isn't an artist as versatile as me..... that is all" also garnered attention.
