Jaebom Apologizes For MySpace Comments

It seems that someone’s out to get Jae when comments made during his trainee days about being in Korea were dug out. Understandably, as he had also explained, those days were not easy for him to fit in but there’s always something about comments like these that can stir up patriotism and slamming. But in any case Jaebom has also released an official apology. I say he deserves some slack. Everyone complains about their country. It’s kinda hypocritical to condemn him just coz he’s famous right~

Jaebom’s apology:


Hello everyone this is 2PM’s Park Jaebum. I would like to apologize on behalf of the comments I had made through Myspace a few years ago. I’m sorry.

As I tell all of you about how I felt that time, I also would like to apologize. In January of 2005, I came to Korea as a high school student. I was born in the States and I had insufficient knowledge of how Korea is. Being it my first time, I couldn’t communicate with others, my taste buds didn’t fit, and I barely knew the culture which I couldn’t understand. I felt as though I was treated coldly by the people around me as my family was left in the States. It was such a difficult situation where I didn’t even know if I was going to debut. Due to many hardships, things were getting too hard and I was getting lonely being homesick. I had the thoughts of quitting and I wanted to go back to my family in the States. The comment based on the Korea part: I wrote that because of my personal situation I was placed in and my emotions took over. I was too young and said things in the wrong words. I was too foolish, young, and facing difficulties where I made the mistake into turning my surroundings worse. Time passed by and I forgot that I had even written them. I am now embarrassed and truly sorry of those comments I had made. After that time, I had adjusted to everything and my thoughts have changed tremendously as I thank the people around me to get me to perform on stage in any situation. Those comments were made four years ago, but I am a different person now. To my family, Hottests, members of 2PM, and those who love 2PM, I am truly sorry. From now on, I hope that there will be no mistakes like this ever again. I will say it one more time that I am truly sorry.

    They really shouldn”t judge him for something that happened 3-4 years ago. People wouldn”t even bother with the comments, if he wasn”t so famous with 2PM .

    I think people in Korea take things to the extreme. He’s only human, he has the right to express what he feels. Plus, he was probably sad and missed his home when he wrote that little comment. People do and say things they don’t “literally” mean when they’re depressed or sad. I think that it’s ridiculous how it’s gotten to the point where he had to leave the group. Comments like that are not meant to be taken seriously. People got to understand that he was born in America, and things are different for him than any other korean. The things we say are different and taken differently here, and people should understand knowing that he’s from the U.S. Plus I think his comment was only an expression of how much he missed home, not neccessarily dissing Korea.

      i think there are many people worldwide who understand jaebom’s position..i would totally like to get into the minds of people who are still making life hell for him. maybe it’s possible they’re jealous of a foreigner’s success in their country because i dont see why after he repeatedly apologized, after he left the country and after evidence that his view of Korea and koreans have changed for the better, they would still hold it against him. very nazi-like heh.
