SINGAPORE, July 28 — South Korean rapper and producer Jay Park will join this season’s Asia’s Got Talent judging panel, it was announced yesterday.
The 30 year-old Park, also known as Park Jae-bum, will join 16-time Grammy Award-winning music producer David Foster and Indonesian singer-songwriter Anggun, who are returning for a second season.
Park said: “I’m looking forward to being amazed, shocked, motivated and inspired.”
Foster added that the first season of Asia’s Got Talent had “impressed” and his expectations are now “even higher”.
“I expect to find the next Asian international superstar,” Foster added.
Last week, Park made the news when he signed with American rapper and businessman Jay-Z’s management firm Roc Nation.
