Hey guys, this is the video taken at the airport today. So many fans went to bid farewell to Jaebeom!

Zomg, desperate cries and screams were everywhere. But seriously, he left because he wanted to take responsibility, he didn't want 2PM to go down because of him so he left. Poor Jaebeom. D:

Hacked by stareye_pink~

On the official 2PM fancafe, leader Jaebeom announced that he will be officially quitting 2PM. JYPE has just confirmed this is true.

This decision was made after his recent Myspace controversy was blown out of proportion. JaebeThreadom will be leaving Korea today at 6:30pm KST.

Jaebeom posted:

"Hello, I'm 2PM's Jaebeom.

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.

The Reason?

On September 4, 2009, articles surfaced on the internet regarding Jaebeom's posts on his personal Myspace account about his dislike for Korea and Koreans back in 2005 when he was still a trainee for JYP Entertainment. Jaebeom issued an apology regarding this matter.Although outraged protesters demanded that Jaebeom should be forced out of 2PM, JYP Entertainment CEO Park Jin-young stated on September 7 that he was going to continue to remain part of the group.The following day, Jaebeom announced on his offical fancafe that he would be leaving the group and returning to the United States, and apologized to the other 2PM members for not being a good leader and older brother to the group


It has recently been revealed that 2PM's leader Jaebum will no longer be on Nodaji and will stop all activities until his Myspace controversy clears. But apparently, that wasn't enough for angry netizens. Some antis wanted him to quit show biz altogether, some wanted him out of 2PM, and then there are those antis just wanted him to disappear...

...And thus, a petition titled "Jaebum Should Commit Suicide" was created on Agora, one of Daum's portal sites . Over 3000 people have signed this petition, leaving comments such as "Go back to America", "I'm disgusted by you", and "Jaebum will be the next Yoo Seung-joon" before it was taken down on September 7, around 4PM (Korean time).

But things seem to be looking up, because another petition entitled "Please Forgive Our Jaebum Just This Once" on Agora replaced the other hate-filled one and has gained over 6,000 signatures in two days.

All I can say is, I truly hope that things work out for Jaebum. He even released a heartfelt apology to the public about this controversy. This kind of hatred is too bitter and no one deserves it.

Jaebeom's last bow and words:

"I'm Sorry..."


Poem for you by x_Twilight_x:

Oppa, get up and smile
Forget what they say and move on tommorow
Don't turn around and walk that door,
Continue singing and smile some more...

Oppa, you're going the wrong way,
Korea is your home; home, you must stay

Without you,
my heart won't beat and there's no air to breathe,
Oppa, I'm begging you,
Oh please don't leave

OMG! JAEBEOM! NO! Please don't leave us! D:

Stupid Netizens! WHY?!

Why does he deserve this?!

What are your thoughts and feelings?

As of this morning, sadly, our dearest 2PM leader, Park Jaebeom has officially left the Beasty Idols.

Park Jaebeom's decision has been officially posted on the fan cafe of 2PM with JYP Entertainment's confirmation of his departure from 2PM. His flight back to the US is reportedly set today at 6:30 pm (KST). Surely Korean and international fans are absolutely in the state of shock although there has been rumors of replacement in the group, canceled 2PM activities, and posted petitions both to push for his complete elimination from 2PM and to garner support for keeping him with the rest of the members.
This unfortunate event reveals a number of issues that circulates fandom, society and the music industry:

One, Jaebeom's posts on his Myspace account four years ago showed that past doings, may it be good or bad or unconsciously done or thought to be forgotten or laid to rest, may possibly resurface in the most unguarded moments. Excessive fandom that hunts the past, present and future plans and any activities related to the idols are expected to be dug up --- no matter how cruel or good natured may they be. Reasons of immaturity and lack or sense of responsibility are deemed weak since age does not relate to one's level of maturity to know what is impolite and improper. Also, privacy even for our idols who live public lives must be respected by both fans and anti-fans.

Two, reading his past Myspace comments may at first garner disgust which is only normal as his comments were cited with words that seemed inappropriate, impolite or insensitive socially and culturally. Thus, it is not surprising for a public uproar for his carelessness. However, this happened four years ago and as Jay Park has explained in his apology, he has changed this past years and learned a lot from his experiences. Netizens like their idols must keep in mind that they too undergo emotional problems like normal people do.

Three, this is related to the previous that is, netizens must also gauge their reactions towards their idols' mistakes or mishaps. Although this issue is culturally sensitive, it is still unjustifiable to demand that their idol who has done mistake must commit suicide. Demanding suicide is blatantly unethical and rude. Death can never resolve mistakes, it only adds fuel to the fire because it will not strike at the heart of the problem. This kind of petitions are weak masks used to cover up hatred but does not conjure any equitable solution to the problem.

Fourth, apologies might have been said but sincere apologies equals accountability. This does not mean completely forgetting the incident (although some supportive fans argue that they love the leader so much that it is enough to forgive and forget). 2PM leader has apologized sincerely and we as rational beings must accept it. The next step is to prove sincerity and heartfelt reflection on the misdeed done. On the other side, netizens must be vigilant that their idols are responsible enough. But accountability should never mean death from someone because this is unjust and against human's right to life.

Fifth,netizens' uproar demonstrates the extreme case of fandom which can be injurious.Also,this shows the flaws of the entertainment companies and idols themselves who knew all along the kind of fandom environment and must be keen enough to be mindful of their deeds since even past actions have recurring effect in the future.

Thus, I think Park's departure from 2PM is an early move in the midst of heated demands from the netizens. I suggest that the group should have let the issue wane down a little longer, like the cancellation of their activities.Although this is difficult since the netizens' next steps are uncertain and might be worse, staying calm and prudent at times of too much friction is good enough.To display sincerity, Park on his side must show how truly sorry he was by reaching out to his fans, like any good deed such as donations to communities etc.This is not building hypocritical image but a way of cleaning one's self by showing how deeply committed he/she is to do good things. Also, we must remember that idols and netizens alike must be just in their actions and decisions since everyone as a human being is entitled to express his/her thoughts freely but responsibly. Wrong deed can never be solved by another mistake.

Much lessons can be learned from this incident. If both idols and the netizens reflect and understand equitably the whole situation, both camps will gain and correct the imperfections of a crazy fandom syndrome and at the end be beneficial for the society.

I hope Park Jaebeom's departure is not the end of this dilemma because I hope that the other camp of the netizens will likewise be liable enough to the post-incident effects. What I mean is that the side of 2PM has partaken on their responsibility which means that the other side, that is the netizens who have displayed improper decorum, must also be responsible enough. If the public is brave and quick to correct the misdeeds of their idols, the society must also at the same time be equally be assertive in correcting the misdeed of some rude netizens. Fandom is a colorful culture which may break or embellish the industry since the fans are the consumers who create demands and support. But fandom is also a mutual relationship between the idols who market themselves and the netizens who support them.

I hope for the best for Park Jaebeom and the netizens' enlightenment. 2PM, let's go!

netizens go too far
waaaaaay too far
i don't think they seem to know when they've gone over.
this won't be the last of netizens doing this, well at least i think so...
as for jae i know he chose to leave but he shouldn't have!!!!!
sometimes people who have no sympathy or understanding think they are doing the right thing, but it ends up having a person to lose something..does that make sense?

i hate how the koreans react to this lil comment made decades ago! they gotta watch the whole things through the eyes of the past JAY!
it was damn difficult for him and now this pressure is killing his futur?

i hope he made a well-thought step. i will just take this as a break to let korea calm down. after that he will come back and give us a splendid show with his 2PM members! also i hope the 2PM members and JYP support him by stopping every 2PM activities AND (!) by not looking for a new member nor continue with only 6/7 of 2PM's soul!!!

Jay, we love you!!
