“What is it like to be in love?”

“Free. It feels free, like there’s nothing that can stop me, nothing can hold me down.
It feels as if I can do anything because of love and I’m free of the fear of failure because,
even if I can’t do everything, at least at the end of the day,
there’s still me and him. When all else fails, love won’t.”

[00m3] Supporting 2PM

insanity.
What I don't understand is how something so small,
something that happened years go,
can affect someone so greatly.

What I don't understand is how something so small,
from four years ago,
can damn a person so.

What I don't understand is how something so small,
done when one was young and naive,
can hurt one who is older and wiser now.

What I don't understand is how something so small,
is generating so much hate,
when remorse and apologies have already thrived.

What I don't understand is the insanity of some people.

Dear Readers,

No, this isn't an update and I apologize to those who saw the site had been updated and anticipated one. While I was away on vacation, something transpired in Korea to a band that had just celebrated their 1 year anniversary, swept away the #1 spot in music shows and was definitely on the rise to becoming something great. This band is 2PM.

I'm not sure how many of you are fans of 2PM or follow KPOP news. However, this is the gist of it. Netizens had dug up an old myspace page belonging to leader of 2PM, Park Jaebeom/Jay. He had made comments on there which - in truth - were slanderous against Koreans. This caused an uproar from netizens while also generating massive amounts of support for the leader from the band's fanclub, Hottest.

While what he said was wrong, one must also take into consideration that those comments were made back in 2005 while Park Jaebeom was still training. Who anticipates that an offhanded comment they make will come back to ruin them four years later? Nevertheless, Park Jaebeom released an apology following this scandal.

Since then, 2PM has ceased all of their activities, antis have been attacking Park Jaebeom constantly, and to counter that, 2PM fans have created their own petition.

Despite Park Jaebeom receiving support from his members, other artists & celebrities, he has stepped down from being leader, has left 2PM and has returned to the US.

On September 10th, CEO of JYPE, JYP himself released a statement regarding Park Jaebeom. He's very honest and sincere with what he writes and it not only explains Park's statements from four years ago and how he has changed. I think JYP's statement compliments Park's apology.

This post was created to show that myself and my site completely support Park Jaebeom and hope for his return to Korea and 2PM. For those of you who, like myself, are 2PM fans and wish to show your support, an additional module has been added to the right with links on how to do so.

Park Jaebeom, 2PM - For whatever the future will hold; Fighting!

Yours truly,
CheonSa

I very agree with you, I can't believe Jay left 2PM T_T
It makes me sad, thinking about all of the other member's feelings that one of their bandmates have left. I just hope that the netizens will realize that with Jay gone, 2PM isn't the same, and that they will forgive him >.<
Jaebum and 2PM FIGHTING~!
