[Translation]Letter From Jay's Friend In Korea!

Letter from Jaebum's friend in Korea

Hello this is Jaebum's friend who was in the same class with him and I would like to share how Jaebum lived at the time.

Jaebum moved to study at our class for his 3rd year in high school. There was nothing special. I just heard that he was a JYP trainee from USA. I regarded him as an ordinary student. At first, he could not adjust himself to Korean cultures and barely spoke Korean. Jaebum was not in acquaintance with friends and preferred to be alone. As time passed, he could finally get along with friends. We played basketball together. He seemed to be fond of physical education class the most. Since he had to part from his family and friends who he used to hang out and practiced dancing with in the States, he looked lonely at times. He was living by himself in a tough conditon as a trainee in Korea.

Jaebum had a lot of things to do. He usually practiced singing during his free time or writing rap lyrics. He loved to go to the gym the most. I remembered inviting him for lunch but he rejected and only ate food with protein nourishment. How pity he was then. We were in the same basketball team. The friends in our class used to sing birthday songs to him. When we graduated, Jaebum was trained full time at his company and one day he boasted to me that he was put into a group, 2PM and would be on national televisions. I knew that he worked so hard before he debuted with his first album.

Not only Jaebum, I heard that all JYP trainees and staff also worked so hard. Even though Jaebum had extreme tight schedules, during the second album promotion, he could come and join our alumni party. I was happy to see his confidence and shine coming from him which was different from the time he was still just a trainee where his future was in doubt. He told me that he liked Boom-hyung. Boom-hyung is a fun person who takes care of him so well. I knew that he was living a happy life at the time.

But, for the past few days, there were a controversial of Jaebum's offending comments from his myspace. All those efforts he put were shattered in the blink of an eye. I tried to call him because I was so concerned. He told me he was at the airport and about to leave for USA. I asked if he'll ever come back. He said how could he when so many people hate him this much...

As a friend of Jaebum, there is nothing I can do. I can only let him leave like that. His flight left at 6:30pm. I can only wish that he go back to have a better life with his family. Even in the US, I wish he still carry on and fulfill his dream. I would like to thank you all who loved my friend. Jaebum Fighting!

“Now I think I have become a real Korean”
“I'm proud to be Korean”
“The Republic of Korea”
“Korean people are like stars, they dress so well comparing to me I dress like a pauper. Oh no, yes I am a pauper.”
“I'm not familiar with English now, isn't it funny? Haha”
These messages were written by Jaebum in 2006.

Looking at those messages, you can see that his attitude has changed.
He said he was proud to be Korean and he truly love Korea.

Please believe him.
Please don't judge him only by the message he wrote when he was a struggling trainee (4 years ago)

    I am not a hottest but I am supporting him nonetheless because things are really blown out of proportion. I even teared when I read "how can I come back again when so many people hate me now?" It just isnt fair. But there are so many people out there everywhere loving him. Just be strong leader!

    if we were placed in the same situation as him, and is being criticised like he is now, how will we feel? please don't judge him. just give him our support

    antis before u judge him please see his behaviour first

    see the difference when he was filming Hot Blood and compare with his behaviour nowadays he's totally different

    he was used to be cold at that time and now he can entertain audience well
    and the most important he said he is proud to be Korean

    we should seek for the good thing

  15. the netizens who did such thing must be hot on fire,,
    padan muke~!

    jay..we love ya!

  16. Jaebeom can be a pervert talking about yadong & stuff but in my eyes, HE still the best. People(netizens) didn't even thank him for being a great entertainer before the incident happens. Jaebeom is soooo cheerful & it's no wonder why i like him the most amongst the rest, cos' his sooo hard working for his fellow family, friends & members but most importantly his FANS.
    When i first saw him on their music video '10 Out Of 10', i was like looking forward to know him & the rest of the 2PM members more better like in variety shows & all that. He would suprised me sooo much that i had to smile & laugh like, In idol army/every1 idol/idol show(which ever you called it), he looks soo mature & quite handsome doing his dance & sing but then after all that singing & dancing has ended, he will be like a little kid always kidding around, teasing people & all that. He always suprised me by that kind of attitude which i really miss & love this much that i cry when watching his video in airport while i'm in another country just keeps on watching & crying. i'm Pathetic right?
    i'll pray for him & hope that the incident will cool off & that he will returned with his smiling face. Love & god bless you PARK JAEBEOM
