“Zombie Idols” 2PM Explain 1:59PM

ahhh loooong since i updated. just finished my exams yesterday not that i studied that much heeee 😀 and well, i’ll try to keep up on some past updates and newer ones 😀

2PM recently performed at K-POP Night in China, Shanghai on the 25th. When 2PM was in their prep room, they were asked if their first album’s title, 1:59PM, means the missing spot of Jaebeom, which many Hottest fans are interpreting by.

Wooyoung continued, “Our bodies are like general orthopedics. We try various actions and we get hurt. The choreography that each of the members perform at the end of Heartbeat always changes. Our backs, wrists, ankles, etc – there isn’t a place where it doesn’t hurt.
