    so sad to have endured all the tough training, being away from home at a very young age, living in an environment totally opposite from where he used to be and all this for 4 years, made known in the industry for exactly a year and losing everything in 4 days !!!!

    2pm is called the "beasts idol' beast leader jaebum perfectly fits the position and proves this title to be true he decides like a king lion...very similar like when a king lion can no longer protect his PRIDE he eventually sacrifice, leaving the group rather then staying and dragging along the entire group in catastrophe....but as always a light shines bright at the end of the tunnel jay, you're such a brave kid..this might be the most painful decision he's done for the common good of everyone...look at the brighter side of this...this might become a gateway to a more successful jaebum in the future...something to look forward to...hold on jay ! you are never alone..you have more supporters than haters

    2pm isn't 2pm without jay.
    i'm very curious as to how the other 2pm members and 2am members are handling this situation.
    i personally feel like jay should have stayed in korea and let things die down.
    sooo many people love him so it would only be a matter of time before things were back to normal.
    but i do agree that it's gonna be hard for him to stand on stage and perform, knowing what the audience knows about what he said about their country, his country.
    however, jay needs to be strong. he's the one who keeps 2pm together, the leader of the group.
    i mean, can you imagine 2pm going onto shows without jay?
    he always made me laugh and he's got such an awesome personality.
    but why netizens, why must you blow everything out of proportion and ruin someone's career, someone's life.
    2pm, happy birthday.
    2pm, we will always be fighting for you.

    he sacrificed himself for his group.
    That proves he is the best idol leader out there!
    the koreans netizens started feeling regret when he already quit the group, and if he didn"t the netizens would probably still be mad,trying to prevent 2PM activities...
    i"m so proud of him! we will wait for him! jay park will ALWAYS be the true leader of 2PM!

    the fans, jaebeom and the rest of the members are definitely having a hard time dealing with all these. i hope wooyoung is better...poor boy.

    it's even painful to watch their videos now. they looked so happy and close and this happens.

    too bad the antis won't get the punishment they deserve. The only victim is Jaebum and 2PM. The world doesn't have justice. God see's injustice, and waits.

    Aish~ This is why people in korea need to calm down and have some damn empathy. Why cant people ever look at both sides of the story. Forgiveness is not ours to withhold. People asking why he left. WHY? BECAUSE that little thing he did, just happened to hit the very SPOT the only THING koreans cling on to the most. Which is their PRIDE in being korean. Can you imagine the AMOUNT of hostility he must have felt after that incident? Even FROM OTHER celebrities im pretty sure he got it bad. One can only endure for so long, not to mention he probably left with the thoughts that he will only HOLD the other members back from THEIR dreams while trying to peice back TOGETHER his. Jay Beoum Ive never been a big fan but...Jay Beoum HWAITING!!!
