Joo JiHoon Confesses His Feelings To Fans



Last August, Joo JiHoon had been caught red handed using drugs.He had been sentenced to one year of probation and 120 hours of community service.

Now, he decides that it is time to express his feeling to his fans.

On September 7th, Joo JiHoon decided to express his feelings through his homepage to his fans.
I feel many changes of emotions as I’m thinking what to say first. After my words of goodbye before, here I am again greeting you guys after the passing of two seasons. As usual, I’m living fine, listening well and watching well. I wanted to live confidently and straight forward, but I know that with my mistake I left pain and showed a weak side of me at the end as well. My heart was hurting, and I felt bad. I’m keeping everything that you guys have told me and sent me deeply in my heart. Now that the past had faded, I write these words as I’m looking forward to the day I will show the future side of me. I love you all and miss you as well.

Started in August, Joo JiHoon spent his time doing community service with the elderly and the disabled 8 hours each day and finished his 120 hours of community service. Currently he is at his home and planning to enter the army later this year.

G-Dragon vs. Taeyang?

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

G-Dragon and Taeyang--YG Family's finest. One boasts an eclectic style with a hip-hop flair, while the other will melt your heart with his smooth and soulful beats. Both spent the latter half of their childhoods training under YG Entertainment, and through exceptional hard work and dedication, became recognized for their talents through the debut of their group Big Bang back in 2006. Through all the blood, sweat, and tears, these two artists made it. G-Dragon and Taeyang, who took the path to stardom together, may very well end up going head to head this upcoming November.

G-Dragon, who released his debut solo album Heartbreaker in August, will be promoting his album until November. Taeyang's second solo album, originally reported to be scheduled for an October release date, will most likely be postponed until November. This means that the promotional periods for G-Dragon and Taeyang's albums will overlap in the month of November.

Love for Korea Revealed Too Late...



After brewing up criticism of speaking ill of Korea, messages filled with love for Korea were found late from leader Jaebum who willingly left 2PM, and fans are feeling regret.

In each fan site, and through internet notice boards Jaebum’s message in 2006 to his friends in America through his myspace were "I want to stay in Korea 1 more year” “Not as a JYP(trainee) but I want to spend it as a Korean” and others saying that Korea was his ‘motherland’ and words saying how life in Korea was good were left.

It’s regretful that Jaebum is suddenly withdrawing within a mere 4 days of Jaebum’s ‘Hate Korea’ picture captures that were revealed on the 5th.

On top of that, when Jaebum visited Seattle, USA from late July to early August for vacation, in an interview at a Christian church, he spoke well about his life in Korea, making this news even more regrettable.

Officials in the industry are also expressing their regret over Jaebum’s withdrawal. One music program official said “The regret of the withdrawal is as big as how 2PM’s leader held together the center”. Another program official said that “With leader Jaebum’s withdrawal from 2PM, even if 2PM continues their activities with 6 members, it will never be the same”.

deazaskia (thank you ♥) linked me to this, one of Jaebeom's myspace messages & entries. It's not the specific one mentioned in the article, though.

I'm speechless... where was all of this before? I hope you'll get your year in Korea in the future, Jae..

Jay's Message from Fancafe

Hello, I'm 2PM's JaeBum.

I'm sorry for giving you my last greeting through this letter.
I think it will be hard for me to see you all on stage because of my sorry heart.

I'm really sorry to everyone, and I'm even more sorry to the fans who have shown me love.
From today, I will leave 2PM.

2PM boys, I'm really sorry to the boys and I'm sorry I couldn't be strong as a leader and a hyung and have to leave like this.
However, I hope you will be more cool and charming.

Again, I'm sorry.

JaeBum

What is next for group 2PM with a leader?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

After 2PM JaeBum left Korea at 6.30pm on 8th September, what is next for 2PM as a 6-member group?

A JYP representative said that there are still discussing about plans for the group. JaeBum will be staying in the States for the time being to sort his feelings out. The good thing is that currently they are not doing promotions and is a resting period before their next album. So it gives the group time to come up with a new concrete team operation plan.

After over 1000 fans sent JaeBum off at the airport on 8th September, fans are fighting back with a petition on Agora online to stop JaeBum from leaving the group. The petitions says, “We can’t send JaeBum off like that” and has already received 25K over support from netizens.

The person who helped destroy Jay's career asks for forgiveness + Hot Blood writer message




As you see in the photo it only shows the first section of the writing. That's right, I only did one of the sections. I did not upload the whole thing, the meaning of those words and the section at the bottom were not my writing. But still see that the 2 paragraph that I had written is going around was me... I am not the one who started this but the future seems blacked out for me... i want to die. Firstly, the thing I did is something to be angry about, but to say that I started it will make me more upset. I'm really sorry, please forgive me.

Message from Wild Bunny Production Team + Updates from the Fans & Letter from Jay's Friend

Hello. We are the Wild Bunny Production team.
As you would all know through the news articles,
we had to delay the airing of the 9/8 final episode of Wild Bunny indefinitely.
All the filming and editing has been done,
and the episode was ready to go, but we had to make the decision not to air this.
In the current situation, we think that airing the program
where 2pm members and Jaebum are laughing and having a good time
would not help the audience, the 2pm members, and Jaebum.
Also, after getting to know the real 2pm members and Jaebum, and their
personalities, we did not want to do anything that would bring harm to
them.
