When asked the question, "Is it possible that Park Ji Min will debut internationally first before her debut in Korea?" JYP answered, "We are preparing her for an international debut, however, she still needs to refine her skills. There are a couple weak points that appears and disappears at times. We are working to fix this."

He also says that, "The most important thing for Ji Min is that her voice and facial expressions seem to lack, but this is a rather easy thing to fix. Her singing skills can't improve in a day, however, this weak point she has can be fixed in a day. She needs to work on trimming down her weak point."

Park Jin Young also expressed his expectations and concerns about the upcoming "K-Pop Star Season 2" to air in September. He said, "The biggest concern for me is that 'What if not as many talented people turn out on this season?'" and "This program is important to many of those trying out and I'm excited to see those people, however, I am sort of worried that there might be none."

He also said that, "Thankfully, there are at least 5 times the amount of applicants than there were for the first season."

Meanwhile, Park Jin Young's movie "5 Million Dollar Man" is said to premiere on the July 19 and is said to be a comical movie about a man who wants to be a singer but gets involved in a money case.
