2PM Jaebeom, 2PM and JYPE.
It is sad when you read about his latest news, about him, his mistakes, withdrawal and all that shit JYPE posted. =[
Excerpts from JYP Entertainment’s online letter:
“On December 22nd, 2009, Jaebeom confessed to Jung Wook representative that he had done something wrong during Again and Again promotions. Apparently, it was far more serious than his MySpace controversy.
The six other members were not notified then as they were busy with year-end activities. On January 3rd, 2010, everyone of us (along with the members) sat down for a discussion and came to an agreement 3 days later that it was no longer possible for Park Jaebeom to continue activities along with 2PM.
We thus decided to terminate our exclusive contract with Jaebeom.”
JYPE stated that Jaebeom’s social impulses were a private matter and will not be revealed. They expressed that it was difficult to reveal the details of Park Jaebeom’s offenders who had intruded into his privacy and posted the comments.
JYPE had planned for Jaebeom’s comeback back in November 2009, with the idea of a return in April 2010, to which Jaebeom himself agreed. The plan was for Jaebeom to return to Korea in the 3rd week of February 2010 and have a press conference before resuming activities with 2PM in April. This comeback news were all kept secret, with the aim of protecting Jaebeom and 2PM. But it has now all become void.
We can only hope that the JYP conference planned for the 27th along with the 2PM fan communities will proceed smoothly. Currently, 100 Hottests have gathered at the JYPE building in Seoul to protest at the point of writing.
The netizens are again talking about Jaebum’s official withdrawal from 2PM and his termination of his contract with JYP
On February 25th at 8PM, JYPE, 2PM’s company, revealed through JYPE’s official website that Jaebum has terminated his contract with the company and has officially left 2PM. It was a long message but it said the reason for his withdrawal was Jaebum’s personal mistake. They ended the contract because his mistake could lead to a bigger crisis than the controversy from last September. The letter also said that JYPE was planning on Jaebum’s comeback in March, with the agreement from the other 6 members.
The sudden withdrawal-contract termination announcement, the fans are in a big turmoil. Pop audiences are also in uproar. People are having expectations mixed with mourn, such as “It seems like we have crossed a river that you can’t already cross” and fans are having ‘hope as thin as string.”
One pop audience carefully showed his opinion: “They already ended the contract. I think we came too far to go back.” Also, JYPE already raised the reason as Jaebum’s ‘personal mistake’ so if this ‘personal mistake’ is true, Jaebum could have uneasiness in the future. There are predictions saying that the situation can be even more depressing if we keep digging into the problem.
However, fan’s responses are ‘It’s sad.’ The belief that Jaebum will return, a belief they had for the last 4 months, was suddenly crushed completely, and they are resenting the attitude of ‘Jaebum’s return is possible’ JYP has had. Many fans have left the official fan café shouting for JYP boycott. Fans say “We can’t trust JYP’s position” and is raising their voices that they have been decepted.
In the middle of this, many people are wondering about the meeting between 2PM and their fans that will be held on February 27th. This meeting will be 2PM’s first move after the situation of Jaebum that has lasted for over 4 months and the termination of Jaebum’s contract.
Even though Jaebum, who has left 2PM and returned to the US, has ended his contract with JYPE, the meeting with 2PM and their fans will be held as originally planned.
However, the fans’ responses to the meeting are very disparaging. The fans have already showed pessimistic responses toward the direction and the procedure of this meeting. This is because the fans are wondering if JYPE is having this meeting to appease the fans who are exploding with questions about Jaebum. One of 2PM’s fans has strongly asked for a change in the procedure.
Also, because Jaebum’s termination of his contract has been publicly announced in the afternoon of February 25th, the fans and also other netizens are focused on how this meeting will be held and on what they will be talking about. Some of the netizens are predicting, “Since the issues are serious, wouldn’t there be genuine talks?” but other netizens respond, “The issues are very sensitive and since decisions have already been made, wouldn’t only expected statements be made?”
