DAY6's Jae speaks out about lack of promotion for his personal content from JYP Entertainment
Published 2 months ago
Starting at around 8:00 PM KST on June 29th, DAY6's Jae posted a series of Tweets seemingly aimed at JYP Entertainment (and sub-label Studio J) for a lack of promotions and support for his own projects. The tweets come after the official DAY6 Twitter account (@day6official) promoted a collaboration between FLO (a streaming service) and DIVE studios (a production studio co-founded by Eric Nam) that fellow DAY6 member Young K participated in.
Jae quoted the tweet, asking why the company had not posted or promoted any of Jae's work with DIVE Studios (which include both as a guest on Eric Nam's podcast K-Pop Daebak w/ Eric Nam as well as Jae's own DIVE Studios–produced podcast How Did I Get Here? w/ Jae of DAY6).
Why don’t you repost my dive stuff? https://t.co/OFdcFjhXuM— Day6 Jae (@Jae_Day6) June 29, 2020
The next day, Jae posted the following tweet, discussing his multiple personal projects. Our translation follows below.
최근만 들어서 파드케스트도 있었고 , 패이스북 화이팅한것도 있었고, 88rising 이랑 한 콜라보도 있었는데 왜 제가 하는 활동들은 항상 안올려주시죠? https://t.co/bkzs5DlONL— Day6 Jae (@Jae_Day6) June 30, 2020
I have recently done the podcasts, "Hwaiting" which is available on Facebook, and had collaboration work with 88rising, how come my activities are not shared?
Hwaiting is a competitive game series produced by DIVE Studios and posted on Facebook. Jae's collaboration with 88rising (an American media group known for featuring Asian American and Asian artists) included multiple singles hosted on the 88rising YouTube channel (LA TRAINS, PINOCCHIO, and Guess Not) and a feature appearance at the 88rising's Head in the Clouds festival in Indonesia earlier this year.
Jae then posted an even longer Tweet after that, mentioning his YouTube channel that seemingly was halted at the direction of Studio J or JYP Entertainment. Our translation follows below.
유툽도 저는 온간욕 다 먹어가면서 눈치보면서, 빌면서 겨우 허락받고, 혼자서 다하고, 결국 “회사사람을이 좋게보지않다”라는 의견으로jaesix 접게됐는데 왜 다른 맴버는 매니저분들이 스캐줄표도 만들어주고 회사가 콘태츠 비용도 도와주고 회사직원분들의 도음을 받으면서 좋게 좋게 할수있는거죠?— Day6 Jae (@Jae_Day6) June 30, 2020
Youtube too, for JaeSix, that was all by me working alone, I was told by the company a lot of things, I had to beg for permission but even after all of this, they told me that it was ruining the company's image so I had to quit. But the rest of the members get content and proper management and investments to their works.
JaeSix is the name of Jae's YouTube series he released in 2018.
