eaJ Says He Never Intended to Hurt People
In Mindset by DIVE Studios’ trailer, It’s Been the Craziest Year of My Life, eaJ starts opening up about his experience and past controversies.
Per eaJ, last year immediately became the craziest one in his life.
“I left JYP, I got canceled a few times. Unfortunately, it’s what a lot of people know me for, and that might have been one of the biggest f-ck-ups of my life. There have been a lot of people that I’ve hurt, there have been a lot of misunderstandings, but at the end of the day, I just truly always want to do the right thing,” he added.

eaJ Bombarded With Condemnations Due to Issues
What was supposed to be a way to connect with his fans became the reason why he left the group.
eaJ, then Jae, launched a Twitch channel to interact with the fans. However, he became subject to criticism after making sugar daddy comments.
Fans can clearly remember how the Korean-American idol played the game Rust on his now-deleted live stream, where he made inappropriate comments. At that time, he simulated an NSFW act on another game character, saying, "This guy, he is my sugar daddy," before looking away after seemingly realizing what he said.
He posted an apology statement following the controversial livestream and stopped all his live streams since then.
In December, he said on Twitter that he would be taking a hiatus as a member of DAY6. But JYP Entertainment revealed on the same day that he ended his contract with the company and would leave the band due to personal reasons.
He faced backlash again over her comments about Jamie.
Jae initially debuted with DAY6 in 2015 after finishing sixth place in the Kpop Star Season 1.
