“PSICK SHOW” Edits Out Comments Made About Jay Park
Popular YouTube show PSICK SHOW has edited out comments made by the hosts regarding solo artist Jay Park.
Psick University‘s PSICK SHOW is very popular right now with music artists. Not only was it the only YouTube show promotion BTS‘s RM did when he promoted his solo album Indigo, but Epik High, NCT‘s Johnny, and 2NE1‘s CL have all guested recently.
Despite the show’s popularity, especially among artists, it was recently in hot water due to allegedly shady comments about Jay Park.
TikToker Patrick (@texpatpat) shared a clip from PSICK SHOW‘s new episode, featuring DPR LIVE and DPR IAN. In introducing the guests, host Lee Yong Joo claims DPR has more Spotify streams than Jay Park and even adds, “Sorry, Jay Park, more than you!” Co-hosts Jung Jae Hyung and Kim Min Soo can be heard agreeing.
Today’s guest is a very special guest. Let me introduce today’s special guest, the most streamed K-Hip-Hop artist on Spotify … more than Jay Park.

Patrick’s clip went viral on TikTok with 64.4K views. Patrick and the viewers agreed that something must have happened between them based on the hosts’ tone and random mention of Jay Park.
Jay Park actually guested on PSICK SHOW two months ago. There is nothing really in the episode to indicate that there were any bitter feelings.
Jay Park did make a controversial comment about being a trailblazer for Korean Hip-Hop, going so far as to say, “In terms of taking it globally, no one’s gone further than me.” At the time, some of the hosts could be heard agreeing with him, saying “Yes,” “That’s right,” etc. Still, considering their recent comments made, it’s possible that PSICK SHOW was shading Jay Park for this. That’s at least what it seems to viewers.
But ngl it’s so painful to watch and the way he tried to back it up 😭 and the hosts were like “oh… everybody knows…” they were so lost but just went along with it lmao pic.twitter.com/XbYzHd4fbi

Yet, other fans are pointing out that Jay Park’s Spotify listeners are actually higher, so PSICK SHOW‘s hosts’ comments weren’t even correct. While DPR IAN and DPR LIVE have 1,957,633 and 1,850,131 monthly listeners, respectively (a combined total of 3,807,764), Jay Park has 4,172,066 monthly listeners.
This is Jay Park's monthly spotify listeners. He's the only KHH artist to have over 1 billion organic streams (not obsessive mass streams👀). PSICK hosts, go and check your facts before opening your mouths for lame jokes. And Jay, stop being too nice. pic.twitter.com/5aostDYWHf

Whether it was due to the viral clip, Jay Park’s fans’ negative response, or the fact that the information was actually inaccurate, the clip has since been deleted.
