In an Instagram post, the Korean-American “jeweler-to-the-stars” shared an image of one of the Soju bottles, along with a touching tribute to Park and his accomplishments and contributions to the music industry.
“Jay Park is my real forever friend, a true dongsaeng who I will always respect to the utmost. Not only for what he’s done for the hip-hop and music scene in our homeland of South Korea, but for being a pioneer in transitioning from being an artist to the record label CEO and providing platforms and jobs and deals for new upcoming Korean talent.”
The miniature bottle pieces, which are reportedly encrusted with over 2,000 green diamonds each, reference the iconic drink from Korea.
“If you’re not Korean or familiar with our culture, then you might not know what Soju is. #Soju is OUR drink. This is our Ciroc, our Hennessy. Not only is it traditional, I feel like it’s almost mandatory while eating a Korean bbq. So of course, @jparkitrighthere hit me up to make him 4 of these for his crew.”
