JYP has finally released an official statement on what has unfortunately happened in the past few days:
Here’s what he had to say:
JaeBeom’s exit from 2PM was sad for everyone.
Park Jin Young revealed on the 10th on JYP Entertainment’s homepage the reasons he debuted Park JaeBeom and why he took JaeBeom into JYP. Park Jin Young expressed his grief for what happened with the recent controversy surrounding 2PM’s leader.
JYP proposed that 4 years ago, a troubled youth (Jaebeom) was met by music and was transformed. He also suggested that, “just as things were turning for the bright side, Jaebeom’s online posts from his rebellious years unfortunately surfaced. He was extremely regretful and sorry to his 2PM members, to me, to the company wokers, to the fans, and most of all to the Korean people who had received him so warmly. He believed that if he hesitated making a decision, the fans would turn their anger to the other 2PM members as well. Even more, the current situation made it impossible to perform on stage.”
In Jaebeom’s last email he wrote, “I was really a punk with no respect back right? I’m sorry. Because of you, my view on life has changed so much. I’ve become a stronger person and a much better person. Thank you so much.”
JYP said about the letter, “The pain is ripping. It hurts. But, I knew what Koreans would think of his words (in the past). They would feel betrayed. I could not say anything in his defense.”
Title says all. Videos prove it. To Park Jaebum: Nolite te bastardes carborundorum! AJA!
2PM = Jaebom + Junsu + Taec + Khun + Woo Young + Junho + Chansung
This equation is like e = mc^2. No one questions it. It just is.
i know i said we weren’t gonna post for awhile. But this just makes me even more upset about Jaebum leaving. It should be made known that the people who ruined his career were and are WRONG.
how sad that this comes to light after Jaebum left. He probably just reached the States today. The people who made such fuss about this should really absolutely be either ashamed of themselves or feel really duped by whichever moronic anti who’s succeeded in manipulating everybody~
In each fan site, and through internet notice boards Jaebum’s message in 2006 to his friends in America through his myspace were “I want to stay in Korea 1 more year” “Not as a JYP(trainee) but I want to spend it as a Korean” and others saying that Korea was his ‘motherland’ and words saying how life in Korea was good were left.
It’s regretful that Jaebum is suddenly withdrawing within a mere 4 days of Jaebum’s ‘Hate Korea’ picture captures that were revealed on the 5th.
On top of that, when Jaebum visited Seattle, USA from late July to early August for vacation, in an interview at a Christian church, he spoke well about his life in Korea, making this news even more regrettable.
Officials in the industry are also expressing their regret over Jaebum’s withdrawal. One music program official said “The regret of the withdrawal is as big as how 2PM’s leader held together the center”. Another program official said that “With leader Jaebum’s withdrawal from 2PM, even if 2PM continues their activities with 6 members, it will never be the same”.

Jaebum leaves with letters given to him by fans present at the airport. Also, New York Hottests have gone to JYP USA to leave encouraging messages to Jaebum as well.
