Jae 제 is a member of Day6.
Jae was born Park Jaehyung 박제형 on Tuesday, September 15, 1992. That falls during the Chinese Year of the Monkey and the zodiac star sign Virgo. Jae is the oldest member of Day6 and also the tallest member at a height of 182 cm or 5'11½". He shares the blood type B with group mate Young K.
His nationality is Korean-American although he was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. When he was young his parents moved with Jae and his older sister to Long Beach, California, USA, because they couldn’t speak Spanish that well, but they were fluent in English. He attended Cerritos High School there and didn't go away to college, choosing to attend California State University in Long Beach.
He’s Korean-American so he's fluent in English. Jae also speaks Korean, but he's working to become more fluent. He asks Young K for definitions of Korean words so often that they say Young K is Jae’s living Korean dictionary.
Jae likes to play badminton and compose songs. He doesn’t like aegyo, but he's a bit of a prankster, because he used to edit Day6’s own Wikipedia page and played with members’ nicknames. He ships himself with group mate Young K and calls it jaehyungparkian.
According to the members, Jae yawns when he’s uncomfortable and he talks in his sleep, usually in different languages.
His fans call him Chicken Little from the Disney cartoon because they look alike and also because he likes to eat chicken.
Jae sang and played the guitar from an early age. He eventually launched his own YouTube channel under the user name yellowpostitman. His channel mostly featured Jae performing cover songs. Because of his experience being an internet content provider, he developed the habit of using a lot of long hashtags. Now he jokingly calls himself the hashtag king.
His YouTube channel had over 40,000 subscribers as of the beginning of 2017.
It was through his YouTube channel that he was recruited to join the first season of SBS's reality competition series "Kpop Star" which aired in December of 2011.
