History[edit source | edit]

Park Jin Young founded the company in 1997 as the "Tae-hong Planning Corporation," which eventually became "JYP Entertainment" in 2001.

The studio and headquarters of its United States (US) branch, JYP USA, officially opened in New York City in June 2007.[3] In October 2008, JYP Entertainment opened the JYP Beijing Center as its China branch and, in the same year, the Creative Artists Agency (CAA) included JYP Entertainment on its roster of high profile clients.[citation needed]

In an interview, Park stated that the success of his artists is due to his creation of a "brand" for the artist.[4] It has been reported that the group is worth in excess of $100 million.[4]

In June 2009, it was officially announced that JYP Entertainment and the Jonas Group signed a management deal for the Wonder Girls. Wonder Girls joined the Jonas Brothers' World Tour 2009, in selected cities,and performed their two songs "Nobody" and "Tell Me" as the opening act.[5] In the same year, Holyim, a joint venture between JYP Entertainment and KeyEast BOF, was founded.[6]

In December 2010, Park Jin-Young announced that Rain would be merging his entertainment company, J. Tune Entertainment, with JYP Entertainment.[8]

United Asia Management : In 2011, JYP Entertainment partnered up with SM Entertainment, YG Entertainment, KeyEast, AMENT and Star J Entertainment to create United Asia Management in an effort to promote Korean pop music internationally.[9] In February 2011, JYP Entertainment was changed to JYP co., Ltd.
