Park Myung Soo asked Junho if TWICE were the breadwinners of JYP Entertainment, Junho explained that 2PM still brought in the most money because of their schedules abroad.

Junho then added that it was tough always being abroad because people in Korea think that the group is on a break due to their absence from national television.
He also mentioned that he was heavily criticized after he recently starred on MBC‘s I Live Alone and showed the audience his luxurious house in Chungdam, Seoul.
Viewers expressed that they were skeptical of how he could afford such a place, especially because 2PM hadn’t been promoting in Korea for a while.
“Since we don’t promote in Korea right now, people think we’ve gone on a permanent break. I received malicious comments asking, ‘How does he live in such a good house like that when he’s not even promoting?’ I’m still working hard and I’ve never been able to rest longer than a week. I hope we can clear some misunderstandings.”
