[NEWS] JYP Ent, “6-Member 2PM to Perform at Dream Concert”

29 09 2009

The formerly seven-member boy band 2PM will perform on stage for the first time without member Park Jae-beom who quit the group early August, according to the group’s agency on Tuesday.

“We have decided that 2PM will perform at the 2009 Dream Concert on October 10,” an official at JYP Entertainment said.

The group had been set to perform at the concert a while ago so the remaining six members would attend the event, the official explained, adding that the agency is currently coordinating the band’s future schedule.

Members Jun-su and Jun-ho had sung at the 2009 Asia-Pacific Supermodel Contest last week, performing for the first time since the departure of their former leader.

The original group had last appeared on stage at the 2009 Incheon Korean Music Wave concert on September 5. Three days later, 22-year-old Park left the group over controversial remarks he made on his MySpace account before his debut.

Park Jin-young, founder and CEO of the group’s agency JYP Entertainment, announced two weeks ago that the group would resume its activities with its remaining six members despite fan clubs’ demand to reinstate the former leader.

Fans have declared they would boycott a six-member 2PM on top of previous decisions to boycott the group’s products and hold silent protests.

i don’t know what’s gonna happen with the boycott. it’s a good thing that 1:59(is it rude to call them 1:59?) is gonna be able to perform after so long, but…i don’t like it, because if everything went well, then it means that they can go and perform w/o Jay on their next performances. I feel bad for the members but…i look at it this way…if Jay realizes that because of him the other members couldn’t perform, then he’ll just go back to Korea, coz leaving didn’t make things better, it only became worst for the other members as well.
