Despite his success with Day6, Jae had previously hinted at his possible departure as he wrote an elaborate letter to his fans thanking them for their unfailing support. In the letter, he mentioned that he was contemplating a break from the group and promised to return with more stellar performances. However, it now appears that Jae Park's journey with Day6 has come to a tragic end.
Meanwhile, a close-up photo of Jae's tattoos emerged on a popular online community as an anonymous member posted the same along with the caption, "1597 signifies (Day6's) debut day (September 7, 2015)." Day6 fans were prompt to spot a strange and shocking pattern in his tattoos that sparked speculation if his departure from Day6 was pre-planned.
Earlier in September 2021, Jae got a tattoo portraying a series of numbers "1597-211231." Now, fans have speculated that 1597 signifies the debut day for Day6, that is, September 7, 2015. In the same manner, 211231 must signify December 31, 2021, the very day Jae announced his departure from Day6. "Didn't he write this because he wants to remember it..? Of course it's a natural feeling to be upset at the thought of leaving. But leaving is also part of love's process," one of his loyal fans remarked.
While there has been no official confirmation about the tattoo from Jae's end, it remains to be seen whether he had been planning his departure for a long time.
