[News]Hottests’ silent protest in front of JYP building, “Return JaeBum oppa”

2PM fans are demanding for leader JaeBum to return to the group.

2PM’s fanclub Hottest has mobilized over 1,500 fans over the internet through their website for a silent protest in front of JYP Entertainment building in Seoul GangNamGoo CheongDamDong on 13th September from 2pm.

The fan club is the largest one of the group in Korea with over 200K members. They are demanding from JYP to retract JaeBum’s leaving from the group.

On the day, the fans’ representative announced their petition for JaeBum to return to the group again. They also emphasized that without JaeBum’s comeback, 2PM cannot exist and that they will boycott all activities of the group.

The representative of the fans said, “On 5th September, leader Park JaeBum’s messages written on his online personal space 4 years back, which was deem as offending to the Koreans, were revealed. Even though he replied, the criticisms against him continued. After that, in just 4 days, JaeBum left the group and returned to his hometown Seattle in America. This has caused much confusion and shock to us fans.”

“Through this whole process, the company did not do anything to the team which they have put in effort to groom. All the responsibilities were carried by Park JaeBum. While the fans are hoping for official explanation and active solutions to the situation, JYP has looked away and fans are now angry at JYP.”

Also, “All the 5 years – 4 years after leaving the family back in the States and coming to Korea to train and that 1 year after debut – just collapsed in 4 days. We are angry at what JYP showed us in this past week, and we are officially demanding JYP to return Park JaeBum to 2PM.”

Fans were seen holding placards with demands to JaeBum’s return to the group written on them, and about 1,000 2PM CDs were returned in front of JYP’s building to show their boycott to the company.

The fans will be protesting from 2pm to 6pm that day. About 100 over police officers are on stand by. But fans protested in a orderlyand civilised manner.

    K HOTTESTS have info that JYPE forced Jay to leave...even when Jay was asked if he ever wants to come back, he said "the only ones who can save my career now are my fans."

    People should understand K Hottests, ever wonder why JYPE didn't even do anything? They didn't even give Jay a press con? A chance to say he's sorry for everyone to see? Jay has a 7-year contract! How could he leave just like that? So JYPE must have decided to remove him. And that's not fair. If K Hottests won't do anything, people will forget jay - like nothing happened! Don't you get that?

    I agree. JYP should have at least held a press conference for Jay. This will give Jay the oppurtunity to explain himself properly and give the public a better understanding of his background. The statement that JYP released later after Jay left seem more like a salvation tactic - to save their own ass. Bad move people. Didn't expect the backlash did you?
    You've just made yourself a bad company to work for and fans to support.

    If JYP had believed in Jay, he would have openly supported and defended him. This is what I see lacking. Am glad I'm not the only one.
