2PM, troubled with the matter of ‘agreement’ about Jaebum’s permanent secession? One industry associate, “One member of the mean, at opposite ends with management company.”
Members VS Company, disagreements emerged at the 2PM fan conference?
On the 25th, news like lightning on a sunny day struck the celebrity industry, with the title of ‘Jaebum’s permanent secession’. Many have their eyes on the matter as management company JYPEntertainment (from now on JYPE) went on with the fan conference as scheduled.
At first, the fan conference which started at 3pm on the 27th at a shopping mall in Seoul’s Songpa-gu Moonjeon-dong, was scheduled for all 2PM members and JYPE associates, as well as 10 fan representatives, however as of now, 4:30pm, it is known that only 4 of the 2PM members are present. (ETA ~7:35PM KST: apparently all 6 are there now)

Brief Update, ~8:45PM KST (mods, I hope this is ok since the news bit itself is too short to constitute a new post?):
- JYPE representative revealed to Osen that the meeting consists of 87 fans, JYPE rep Jung Wook and all 2PM members. The meeting started at around 3.00 PM - 7.00 PM which took over 4 hours.
- Both JYPE Rep and all 2PM members answered all the questions as honestly as they can until no further questions were posted
- However, the true reason of Jay's permanent resignation was not answered. The JYPE Rep said it was Jay's personal problem and cannot be disclosed.
(Basically nothing we couldn't already surmise...)
