As you know Leadja has left for Seattle just now from Incheon airport and we can only wish him the best from here on. Jaebom is a good person and surely greater things lie in store for him. Before he left, he was interviewed and here it is courtesy of 2pm-online
SOURCE:sportsseoul Inchon Airport, inside Gate 24. 2PM’s Jaebum continued to repeat his apologies with his head held low before boarding his plane to Seattle. When the interviewer asked Jay about his plans in America, he talked about ‘studying music.’ Although he dropped out of the group, his passion for music and determination not to give up showed.
Sports Seoul dot com was able to talk to Jaebum on the 8th 6:10 PM inside the Incheon Airport Departure Lounge. The first things out of his mouth was ‘I apologize..I’m sorry’
He said “What more can I say? I am just so sorry to the loving fans and the members who had trusted me and followed me.” He added, “I am sorry that I had to leave this way, I did not fulfill my responsibilities as a leader and was just a burden, so I decided on leaving the group.”
They could tell he was very tired and had gone through a lot in just a few days. His voice was very low/weak. They asked another question to Jaebum who continued to apologize with his head hanging low.
When they asked him about his plans in America, he talked about music. He said, “I am planning to study music in America” and “have a time of reflection. I want to show a more mature side both personally and musically.”
He also avoided answering questions regarding his plan to return to Korea. His expression showed that it was too early to be discussing about comeback plans. Instead, he expressed, “I want to thank the fans who had come out to the airport,” and “I will stay healthy in America. I will come back as a better person.”
I think a good song to dedicate to Leadja would be Eminem’s Beautiful… i thought~
Jaebum will be one tough act to follow 🙂
