JYP Entertainment recently released a statement in the form of a full length letter explaining everything from the beginning of 2PM’s ex-leader Jaebum and his controversial Myspace issue till now..and the shocking fact that Jaebum will never return to 2PM shocked K-Hottests and international fans alike.
Here’s a little snippet of the letter,
Last September, 2PM’s member Park Jaebeom announced his withdrawal from the group and returned to Seattle after a message he wrote on the internet during his trainee days caused backlash. We will now reveal what course of action will be taken.
In November, 2009, the company proposed that Park Jaebeom make his comeback through an album that would have been released this year in April, and Park Jaebeom had agreed to these plans. The plans called for Jaebeom’s return to Korea on the third week of February and a press conference would have been held before promotions as a 7 member 2PM began.
On December 22nd, 2009, Jaebeom confessed to Jung Wook, a representative, that he had done something wrong during the Again and Again promotions. Apparently, it was far more serious than his MySpace controversy.
We thus decided to terminate our exclusive contract with Jaebeom.
To 2PM and all the people who waited for Park Jaebeom’s return, we apologize deeply and are sorry to have to reveal this sad news to everyone.
The company and the remaining 6 members will prepare even harder and greet you with a better image.
As you can see and/or predict, 2PM’s fans - especially Jaebum’s - are not in the happiest of moods right now. So some of them actually went and trashed the JYPE building while others spread some negative rumors around:
On the 26th, fans littered the building with ripped up pictures and CD’s of the 2PM members and have even put bundles of chrysanthemum flowers at the entrance. (TN: Chrysanthemums and other white flowers signify death in Korea.)
The fans stated, “It means that without Jaebum, 2PM fans are dead.”
Many have since withdrawn from the official fan cafe of 2PM and have stated, “Should 2PM continue to promote themselves with 6 members, we will no longer be a 2PM fan. We will become Jaebum’s personal fans or 2PM’s anti fans.”
Fans are also pleading for the company to release a more detailed statement that is understandable.
There are also a variety of reasons circulating his resignation, such as ‘getting a female pregnant’ and ‘drug abuse.’ The reasons are getting more and more compressed, causing the fans to react with rage.
No reactions to display.
