2PM Interview from 1.59 PM press conference



At 2PM on February 1, 2010, six members of Korean boy band '2PM' (Taecyeon, Wooyoung, Chansung, Nichkhun, Junho and Junsu), who had flied to Thailand,  joined the press conference for their first full-length album '1.59 pm.' at Infinity Hall, 5th floor, Siam Paragon Department Store.

There was a gathering among Thai fans, giving a warm welcome to 2PM. They had been packed in the hall to support their favorite artist while the members shared many stories, regarding this album which drew hot and passionate screams from Thai ladies.

How do you feel, coming to Thailand?
Chansung: It is such pleasure to visit here once again. I was so surprised that many fans come and support us. Thank you very much.


Why is the title of this album '1.59pm'?
Taecyeon: well...
Nichkhun: Our band's name is 2PM, isn't it? However, one member is missing which means our group is incomplete. That is the reason why we named the album '1.59pm.'


What do you usually do at1.59pm?
Teacyeon: Normally, we are working during that time


If is was Sunday without any schedule, what would you do at that time then?
Junho: We would be resting up or eating lunch.
Junsu: Same as Junho. Maybe eating, sitting down in front of the computer or sleeping.


How long does it take to create the album? Is there any participation of the members in it?
Wooyoung: We spent around 2-3 months preparing it. In our main song 'Heartbeat', we did record our real heartbeats in the song and the members also did the narration, our utmost feeling, in teasers.


If you compared the song 'Heartbeat' with the former hit  'Again&Again', does the song show any substantial progress ? 
Taecyeon: 'Heartbeat' is quite different from 'Again&Again' in terms of content. 'Again&Again'  tells the story about a guy who has been cheated by his girlfriend while in 'Heartbeat', the persona is heartbroken. Therefore, it is even sadder than our former classic.


Anyway, Thai girls are ready to fix your broken heart. 
2PM : Thank you


Is there any fun episode, behind the scene of shooting 'Heartbeat' MV? 
Taecyeon : We simultaneously shot the MV and The teaser. As you have known, we recorded sound of our heartbeats but my blood pressure is so low that my heartbeats were almost inaudible. It is just a little fuss but the members had a good laugh at me though.
Nichkhun: Shooting for this MV is easier than others since there would not be other kinds of performance, just dancing, actually. So nothing was so funny about that (Laugh)


How many songs in this album?
Nichkhun: We have never counted the songs.
Taecyeon: Let's us counting one
on one, that side first.

(The members took turns to list songs in the album)
Nichkhun: There are altogether 13 tracks.
 

Which song do you especially want to dedicate to Thai fans?
(They sang 'Only You Acappella Version' live for fans)


How did Koreans response to this album? 
Taecyoen: We got such hot response.


At the end of last year, you received many awards. How do you feel about that?Junsu: We have to thanks all our fans for supporting us. We have debuted for a year and 4 months so it was unexpected that we would be granted various awards. Therefore, we are going to work hard, enabling our band shine with uniqueness. Please continue to support us.


What are your plans in the future? 
Taecyeon: We are doing our solo activities in Korea right now. I and Wooyoung are working as one of MCs in variety shows while Nichkhun is shooting for the movie. In addition, I am going to star in a drama so please do not forget to check it out.


Will there be any chance for you to hold a concert in Thailand? 
Nichkhun: We planned to organize one at Korea. However, in the meantime, we would like to have more experiences. I have talked to the president and he promised me that the first overseas' concert will be definitely held in Thailand. Please wait for us a little while. When we are more experienced, we will surely com back to deliver the best concert.


Massages for Thai fans regarding the album? 
Junho: We gave this album our best. Thanks fans for loving it. Please look forward to our works.
Wooyoung: First, I would like to says thank you to fans, keeping the eyes on us through 2009. It was such a great year. In 2010, we wish that we will be as well happy. Please give us a lot of love.
Junsu: I was so nervous since our group only had 3-4 months for preparing the this first album. I am glad that that fans love it. We performed 'Heartbeat' yesterday and many of you rooted for us. We felt as if our battery were recharged.
Chansung: Fans are going to feel our progress via the songs. I wish lots of people would listen to them. Please love us a lot.
Nichkhun:  There was something happen to us while working for this album so we were not sure whether we should launch it or not. Nevertheless, we trust our fans so we did it. The result was better than we have thought. Thank you so much for supporting us, 2PM.
Taecyeon: Thanks all fans for encouraging us. There were many things floating around but fans still lay their undying trust on us. It is like a source of energy for us to work on this album. Thanks all members and everyone.
