Hottests Empty Their Wallets

The 2PM Underground Fan Movement has delivered their bankbook project on the 28th of October to the JYP building.

The bank book project showed 11,000\ in the fans' bank accounts, money that is put aside to purchase 2PM's album. On the front read "This money will be spent on the album with 2PM's Leadja Park Jaebum's Return." On the back read "I <3 JAEBUM."

The underground movement stated that this is the 2nd boycott movement after the CD returns. "We did not physically collect money but this was rather a show of the fans' thoughts and another way to boycott. It's not only Park Jaebum but for a CD with all of the 7 members of 2PM."

The bank book project had participants from all age groups of middle, high school, and college students with 20~30 year old career folks. Student parents, 2AM fans, and international fans also took part by sending their checks in a separate clear case.

The first try had 1,816 checks, with the 2nd garnering 4,376 in the short 12 day trial, collecting over 6,192 total bank accounts. The total amount of "money" collected totals to 68,000, 000 won (5, 700 USD).

The underground movement has stated "What the fans want is not 2PM's leader Park Jaebum's return but for the company to take back Park Jaebum's withdrawal from the group and for the company to protect him, along with the assurance that Park Jaebum will return."

can... somebody explain this to me? I feel like a dumbass, but I don't really understand what the fuck is going on here.

they're sending fake bankbooks with about $10 in each, saying that when jay comes came, they will have money to buy the album. the total money in these fake bankbooks is $68 000, so it's telling jyp that if he gets jay back, he's makin $68 000 more.

I must seriously be burnt out from my week of non-stop studying, but you've just confused me again. Why that amount of money for each member? I mean, only $10? That's a really fucking cheap album. I'm apparently not catching the symbolism here.

Isn't that basically the same thing? Hottests, let Jay go. :(

err, I think it's a bad translation. The point of the boycott is to assure that he will be able to return if he so wishes -- basically, an open door policy.

they obviously don't give a rats ass about the enviroment, I hope JYP atleast rescycles the books instead of throwing them out like he's probably going to do.
bbgroove 29th-Oct-2009 02:41 am (UTC)
... I don't see how this act proves all of them don't care about the environment. Truthfully other people have done much worse for things that they aren't even nearly as devoted to.

I think this is clever. Showing JYPE how much they'll be missing out on (not a lot but still) not to mention I bet most people who end up getting the album will most likely download it illegally, so still no profit. Hurting JYPE's money revenue seems like the only way to get the point across to the higher ups (JYP himself excluded because he did show some effort)
