15,000 roses for the return of Jaebeom


Amidst the unfortunate news regarding the closing of 2PM’sauction (due to two antis who were responsible for the whack bidding), K-Hottests have found yet another means of showing their support for the fallen leader of 2PM.

After having prepared for this event for 4 weeks, members of a 2PM union fancafe called Neo-Hottest adorned the exterior of the JYP Entertainment building with 15,000 origami roses that read “Waiting For Jay ♥” on October 25th and 26th. The purpose of this special occasion was to express the fanclub’s boycott against a 2PM without Jaebeom, who has resigned from his position as the leader of the 7-member group following the effects of the Myspace controversy.

A member of the fanclub stated, “Each paper rose was hand-made by many fans who shared the same hope that Jaebeom will return to 2PM as the leader. Since numerous people contributed to folding the origami, we hope that our efforts will not go unnoticed.”

After 7 PM on the 26th, the decorations were taken down by the fancafe.


2PM’s Activities to be Canceled?!?

There is a petition going around Korean websites to stop all 2PM activities due to leader Jaebeom’s Myspace controversy. As of the 7th, those in favor of the petition are a little over 5100 netizens. Although the number does not seem that big, for a group who is currently active, it is a number that can greatly harm their future.

Regarding 2PM activities, JYP (Park Jin Young) stated:
“For now, 2PM will not have any broadcasting schedules and all of their music performances have been canceled. They will only be recording and practicing dance moves for their new album.”

JYP in regards to removing Jaebeom from the group:
“Although, we feel very guilty and sorry for all the people who have been disappointed by Park Jaebeom’s past mistakes, I will not be taking him out of the group. Many people have been suggesting ideas of banning Park Jaebeom out of 2PM, but that will never happen. We believe that he has done something wrong, but as a whole, we do not think it is enough to be taking his dreams and goals away from him. This was not a decision made by only the JYPE staff, but it was something all of the fellow 2PM members have agreed to.”

2PM’s Jaebeom to be kicked off variety show?

2PM‘s leader Jaebeom has been receiving much attention having been one of the main cast in MBC’sSunday, Sunday Night.” In “Sunday, Sunday Night”, he has been filming for a new corner called, No-Da-Gee.

No-Da-Gee is a variety show based on Korea’s history where the show’s cast is basically suppose to go around Korea’s historical landmarks and complete missions, in order to complete Korea’s treasure map.

Because he was born and raised in America, Jaebeom is not fully aware of Korea’s culture and history. Even so, viewers had criticized him when he was not able to sing Korea’s national anthem in one of the episodes.

From the controversies of Jaebeom’s past mistakes surfacing, on top of him not knowing Korea’s national anthem by heart, there are discussions being made on whether Jaebeom will be able to stay on the show or not. As a settlement was not made on September 5th, the day his
myspace controversy arose, it has been announced that one would be made by the 7th.
