[NEWS] Netizens are surprised that Jaebum is quitting.

[Asia Economy Newspaper Reporter Lee Hyerin] “We didn’t expect him to quit.”

On the 8th, once Jaebum’s official resignation because of the MySpace Korea comment issue was revealed netizens were shocked.

After the news was released today in the afternoon, netizens said, “The issue would have died off in a few months. It’s tantalizing.” “He made a mistake but quitting was a little to harsh.”and other various statements about his unexpected action. After the issue there has been a petition against Jaebum and forcing him to quit, but they didn’t expect it would really happen.

On the other hand, others have said, “It’s late but how he is taking responsibility for his mistake looks cool.” “It’s a the right outcome.” and have showed satisfaction with his decision.

Also today Jaebum posted a letter on the fancafe stating, “I’m sorry for saying my last goodbye in writing. I think it will be hard to perform on stage in front of you with a sorry heart. I apologize to everyone, I’m so sorry and very sorry to my loving fans.”

“Starting today I am quitting 2PM. I’m really sorry for my 2PM brothers and sorry for not being there for them as a leader and hyung(older brother) and leaving them erasing all the past burdens. But I hope they will do better and be cool. Once again I’m sorry.”

JYP Entertainment stated “This has been talked about and decided in a meeting” and that “Jaebum will most likely go back to America.”

    i agree wit the post above even though im not a fan or sumthin...this is just sending a msg to netizens n antis that they think they can do watever they want by manipulating even the smallest isssues..
    i wonder which artist is next..

    quitting is just the wrong decision i guess..he shouldve stayed strong n show people that we arent suppose to fall down so easily simply bcos some people are criticizing u..this is just so so wrong..

    now the netizens r gonna move on to their next target..

  12. I don't want to believe this.. I don't... Even though I should be happy he's coming back to America cos that means the distance b/w him & I will be closer cos I live in Canada. I really don't want him to go back to America. I want him to stay in Korea and continue performing as 2PM! Sigh, this issue really has been blown way out of proportions. I'm really upset with the way things turned out. 2PM will never be the same again...

    We really shouldn't blame at koreans. It's reasonable for them to get angry with jay's comments to koreans in myspace. However, is it right for jay to leave the group? No! That's too harsh. We all are human, we will do wrong. We should give a chance to jay to correct his mistakes.

    are your happy now? netizens are you saying that you have NEVER made any mistakes before? if everyone have to make such a serious decison for mistakes he had made, wouldnt this wolrd be upside down? he made a mistake but it's 4, 5 years ago. there's no point to pursude, so what if your make this issue so big? and he quit, does it even benefit you guys? just think about it seriously people. and JYPE do something about it please!!

    wow what faggots==' ye what he said was bad but srsly WHO CARES? its jst words everyone has an opinion and opinions can change which in his case it probably did. netizens like those are a disgrace==' they needs to get lives instead of see what idols and stuff do in there life they are jst low life ppl who like to go into other ppls buiness=='

    Oh man, he shouldn't quit. Without his unique voice and muscular presence around it will make 2pm lacking of something. Seriously. Jaebeom, We will definitely miss you and your presence around 2pm :( I hope a miracle will happen and you'll be back. Tc.

    you can't really compare him with her. i mean she didn't have any problems with those crazy ppl. he might be condemned and his chances of returning back to the kpop industry will be very slim. just like baek ji young. it took her so long to return back. sigh. jay, come back ):

    the netizen were so mean too him and didn't give him a break.
    thanks to them, jay quit 2pm :(
    i blame it all on them. they thought torturing him would be a joke.
    seriously, he was not familiar with the customs and culture, plus i bet he was homesick.plus he apologized.
    ughhh 'm so freaking angry right now. 2pm is going to be so weird without jay.

    i honestly think what netizens done have gone way outta mind. F*** seriosuly grow the F*** up they're so immature. They should know better seriously i know what jae did was wrong but like the others sadi he specifically appologized for what he have done and he knew he was wrong, so why DO YOU NETIZENS have to hate on him so much? it truely makes me think that u guys are still so racist about things. NOW im pretty sure ur happy now that hes gone eh ? Jae's done a lot for the group and im pretty sure all of u fans know cus he brought us so much laughter, excitment and one to not forget friendship. cus seriously have u seen 2pms relationship between them its like their born to be brothers and nothing could break them apart. What YOU guys done are wrong and i hope u regret it.

    JAE: wish u all the best, we're always here for you <3!

    Okay for those of you who are still blaming Korean netizens for this whole incident, you should realize that by blaming the netizens, you’re just enabling this situation to just rise up in the air with no one to take the responsibility. How about go read the articles(literally translated if not in korean) and judge for youself how some reporters maliciously blew this whole thing out of proportion and how JYPE(who apprently kicks out their trainees for having girl/boyfriends and is super scrutinizing) never took the caution to perhaps erase/censor the old data. Jaebum has an American citizenship and he was earning money in Korea. And the articles read somewhere along the lines of, the leader of the superstar group 2PM wrote in his blog that his only purpose in staying in this puke-inducing, abominable(that’s how they translated gay) country is to earn money. And after the initial netizen reaction, more articles were written in order to make it seem like the whole country was fuming—when a lot of ppl couldn’t care less. By saying that Korean netizens are crazy and are at fault is basically letting the actually guilty ones off the hook while embracing a racist profile of Korea

    wow...these netizens are really stupid aren't they? They didn't expect anything to happen? Then wtf did they post anything at all? Geeze... And considering there was a suicide petition going around, I doubt he would've felt safe. All it takes is one lunatic with a knife or a gun...
