[news] 2PM fans call for Jae-beom's comeback

Newspaper ad published by 2PM fans on September 14, 2009

Fans of popular boy band 2PM published an advertisement on the front page of a newspaper on Monday as part of their efforts to bring back former leader Park Jae-beom who quit the group last week over controversial comments he made before his debut.

The ad, titled "Four year wait, one year flight... and downfall in just four days," was placed in a daily newspaper by an alliance of some 60 of the group's fan clubs, calling on the group's management agency JYP Entertainment (JYPE) to withdraw its decision in allowing Park to leave the group.

"Park Jae-beom still has much to learn and fulfill. Give him the chance to take flight again in Korea," the ad said as it explained how five years of life in Korea had changed the former singer.

Fans previously issued statements saying they will not accept JYPE's decision and announced they will boycott the group's products until the former leader returns. They also posted up posters throughout Seoul on Saturday and some 1,500 fans gathered in front of JYPE's office to hold a silent protest the following day.

Park, leader of one of the most popular boy bands in Korea since their debut in 2008, came under heat over comments he made on his MySpace account between 2005 and 2007 regarding Korea including "I hate Koreans.

He issued an apology and quit the group on September 8, four days after the comments became public.

    jay did a lot of sacrifices...1.)he acknowledged his past mistakes (which others would deny), 2.) apologized over it (which to some saying sorry seems to be the hardest word to utter),3.)leaving 2pm and fans heart broken, crying and screaming begging him not to go and 4.) going back home to Seattle which he thought the best way possible to save the 6 members and jype 5.) even if it means losing his very promising showbiz career in South Korea, perhaps hoping his decision might cool down the situation...but from the turn out of events it happens the other way around...(hottests protest over jype for jay's return, 2pm members activities canceled,creating more issues and speculations)...the aftermath of the scandal wouldn't end as fast as jay left... everybody knows this is the most painful and tough times for the members, jype, hottests,jay's family and friends and most of all jay himself (the direct target of the controversy)...we can't blame the hottests to do things they think the most that can be done to bring jay back...this is an act of love and overflowing support which jay is worthy of but again give jay the time he deserves to reflect, realize and think over things he needs to... no one knows what lies ahead after all these tremendous heart breaking reality...whatever it maybe, just hope it will be for the common good of everyone (including the antis....a person maybe materially affluent but having a heart full of resentment is a burden in itself...it's just a matter of practice...practice unloading those animosity... after all forgiveness brings happiness...)

    i understand all of your sorrow and wanting him to come back. but doesnt this persistance cause him further pain and regret?

  5. Like anony 1 told us,

    Jaebeoms already made lots of sacrifices..
    leaving his group and return to normal [ it is normal?? ] life instead of being a singer and make lots of money [ hahahaha XD ]..

    2pm fans actually doesn't care what he done in the past..
    All they want is Jaebeoms to came back, which is hard for him..

    so, lets just pray for the best..

    ps; to 2pm anti-fan, just go away..you are making mess..If you don't like the band..Why you care so much?
