20091026_waitingforjayroses_02

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 largest fanclub to protest in front of JYP building

2PM’s largest fanclub is planning for a silent protest in front of JYP building coming 12th September.

Written on 2PM’s official fanclub ‘Hot Star’ site on 10th September, there are discussions for fanclub members to do the silent protest in front of JYP’s building on 12th September.

This fanclub is the largest 2PM fanclub in Korea with over 200,000 members and they will head down directly to JYP’s building for the protest.

They will start the protest from 2pm. They will protest in silent in their large numbers. They recognize that there may be some inconveniences cause to the residents living in the area but stated they will carry out the protest seriously.

A netizen said, “What is important is to do it for JaeBum’s good image. We have to find a way for him to come back while always supporting him.”

But another netizens also said, “This is doing harm to JaeBum, you guys should not go. If it doesn’t go well, it will just make more ugly talk about the issue.”

The members will also be holding placards saying, “Find JaeBum” in unified colours that day.

Meanwhile, JaeBum has left 2PM and also Korea on 8th September, 4 days after the backlashes from the revelation of his pre-debut messages posted on MySpace.

Park Jin Young also issued an official statement on 10th September and some fans are also doing up a boycott movement against JYP.

Meanwhile, fans continue to post up Post-Its in front of JYP building messages to JaeBum and the other 2PM members.

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.”

What is next for 2PM’s JaeBum?

It will not be easy for 2PM member JaeBum, who has been criticised for his offending messages written on his myspace page, to get out of the public eye and criticisms.

With that, JYP Entertainment has gone with the situation, and had decided accordingly not to have JaeBum appear in the media’s eye for the time being.

He will be put on a self-discipline period for the time being.

This will also have a significant effect for the group’s upcoming album to be release early-October. With that JYP’s representative said on 7th September, “For the time being, 2PM will not have any broadcast schedule, and all scheduled events will also be cancelled. But the recording for their album and dance practice will still continue accordingly.”

JYP’s representative also said, “The messages which JaeBum wrote in 2005 on his own MySpace page is just an exaggeration to his friends back in the States. But because of the way and his language of expressing his ideas, he has received many disagreements and unhappiness from the mass public.  Currently JaeBum is reflecting on his wrong in the dormitary and he is also skipping meals. He understands the magnitude of his mistake.”

Before this, many netizens are calling for him to be banned from broadcast shows and even from the group.

JYP’s stance:

Park Jinyoung, representative of JYP Entertainment, has spoken up about Jaebum’s future activities with 2PM. “Although, we feel very guilty and sorry for all the people who have been disappointed by Park Jaebum’s past mistakes, I will not be taking him out of the group. Many people have been suggesting ideas of banning Park Jaebum 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.
