Jaebeom quits 2PM and leaves for home

Korean-American Jaebeom has quit 2PM, one of the hottest boybands in South Korea.

Old post: Jaebeom's old posts on MySpace come back to haunt him

Controversy arising from an old post at his MySpace website caused the 22-year-old to quit.

It is reported that the Again and Again singer wrote comments like “Korea is gay. I hate Koreans. I wanna come back” on his MySpace site two years ago when he was a trainee at JYP Entertainment.

The 2PM leader then issued an apology recently, but it is quite apparent that it wasn't good enough.

Apologetic: 'I'm sorry, everyone.'

Today, Jaebeom announced that he is leaving the group…and Korea. The management agency he is under - JYP Entertainment - confirmed the news.

Jaebeom's farewell message (translated from Korean) reads:

Hello, I'm 2PM's Jaebeom.

I'm sorry for giving you my last greeting through this letter. I think it will be hard for me to see you all on stage because of my sorry heart.

I'm really sorry to everyone, and I'm even more sorry to the fans who have shown me love.

From today, I will leave 2PM.


2PM boys, I'm really sorry to the boys and I'm sorry I couldn't be strong as a leader and a hyung and have to leave like this.

However, I hope you will be more cool and charming.

Again, I'm sorry.

Jaebeom

Jaebeom took the 6:30pm (Korea time) flight back to the States, and there were many fans who turned up to say their last goodbyes.

Emotion: Saddened fans rush to the airport to say
goodbye to Jaebeom

Leaving: Jaebeom returns to the States

Last goodbye: Fans getting their final
glimpse of their idol

Today (Sept 8, 2009) is definitely a sad day for K-popped! fans. Farewell Jaebeom, we will all miss you.

Farewell: *sniff*sniff*

I cry like hell when i hear this news... i go to the twitter to spam on JYP side... Although i know it is useless... but i just want JYP to know that NO ONE IS BORN WITHOUT MISTAKE!!! EVERYONE deserve a forgiveness........

No matter how.... Jay.. ALl the best in the futures

Shira said...

well people.
he's on his way to his family.
i couldnt the help but crying when I saw the pics of him at the airport.
and the fans as well.
it was totally a chaos there...
im worried about other members too especially wooyoung.

Jay,i wish the best for you and your family.
im not giving up my hope..cos i believe in 2PM.

PINKDIVAKEY ★ said...

Seriously Koreans have to learn how the hell to forgive and forget, take and give. Jay already apologized and plus, Korea is him and his family's root. Why are the Koreans making such fuss out of, nothing?

He was naive and childish, he was just 18 and he's 25 now.

Jay, cry it out loud if you're in pain.

LynlynLYN. said...

I felt so sad upon reading this news. Sigh. Why must the antis be so cruel? They just ruined somebody's dream. Ugh. Jay should think about deleting his MySpace account before debuting in Korea though. Sigh. Creepy how fans stalk everything.

Anyway, all the best to you Jay, although I'm not a big fan of yours, I still feel the pain like every other fan would feel. We'll always support you with whatever decision you make.

TT.TT

god korean pop culture is so weird man.. yes i like the music and stuff.. but petitioning for someone to commit suicide is plain dumb and way out of line. like where's your conscience people? makes u feel good to see someone dead?
the dude apologised!! what more do u want? go on his knees? cmon it was light years ago!!

jaebum ftw 2pm ftw

Wawa said...

i'm totally mourning now! i can't believe it & i was trying to refuse o accept this devastating news! 2PM is like my life since i became their fan 4 months ago... stay up late stalking their old vids... LMAO when i watched IA, WB!!! and now, i'm crying like a kid... call me stupid by getting over reacted with this issue, but people just doesn't know what every single boys in 2pm meant to me...

SO LONG PARK JAE BEOM

izza lemonade said...

netizens need to go back to primary school and learn civil.this is freaking ridiculous.why he needs to sacrifice himself?why treated him as if he just killed someone?isn't it too harsh?hottest keep fighting.i don't this crap just ends here.we need to fight it back.

Huda Y said...

This is a sad day...barabwa..now I'm crying!!~

borgy said...

i never thought there would come a day where ill cry over someone who doesn't even know me but Park Jaebum leaving 2PM really hit me hard where it hurts the most. we will never know how much a person mean to us until he/she is gone. same goes to Jay. He is the funniest, most charismatic, most hardworking, most talented artist ive seen in K-Pop. He gave me laugh when i needed it the most. Even today, i tried to cheer myself up by watching Wild Bunny. Boy, he was hysterical. Thank you for the laughter, Jay. what happened to him could be prevented but the ones with the powers did nothing to stop him. Jay is not succumbing to anti's demands but gave them a taste of their own medicine. now we know how much Koreans love him and how much his fans treasure him. i hope he will live a better life in USA but im still holding on to the hope that he'll return to entertain us again, someday.

Park Jaebum, we love you.. always..

crysalide said...

I think JYP the man himself should come back to Korea and settle this. just leave the WG in US and take care of the netizen. there is still hope.

maybe Jay can calm himself with his family and return with new determination.

SH said...

this is non-sense at all..

only a few koreans showed angry over Jaebeom's mischieves contantly but most accepted his apology and didn't care about the issue any longer...

i don't think this is fair...

fishama87 said...

It's really unfair!! I got phone called from my friend..and for the first time I cried at my office because of this sad news...the netizen really cruel..and JYP too stupid...how come he approve about this leaving thing?? Jaebom really a great leader..Hope others Company will take Jaebom and form a superb group for him..and that time,JYP will regret with what he do...

What past is past..Can't they just forgive him about this??

Wish all luck and hope Jaebom can stay calm and return to Korea Entertainment with more great energy...

We will love you always Jaebom

These korean netizens should know that just because Jaebeom is an idol that doesn't mean he is PERFECT! I mean everyone makes silly mistakes...

Haven't they heard of forgive and forget?? It was like 5 years ago before he even debuted... Geez... If he just posted it up then ok, you have the rights to make a HUGE fuss over it... But PPL, it was 5 YEARS AGO! Plus it was during his training period... all the stress must have gotten to him so he just wanted to relieve his stress...

gah... We'll be waiting for your comeback when you're ready!
아자, 아자, 화이팅!

In the meantime, we should all tweet msgs to both Jay and JYP to show how much we want him back =)

Grace said...

Jay,

I wish and pray you'd return. Get recharged in the States and come back even stronger~!

Haxim said...

for real ?!

goodness.
i'm not a big fan of 2PM,
but to hear the leader leaving the group is heart-breaking.

but it's his choice.

all the best to jaebeom and his upcoming activities.

Tk said...

i've been so upset. i cannot believe how immature koreans can be. it brought up ALL of my issues as a Korean American who has been mistreated by koreans--

i'm so upset, super offended, majorly disappointed and disgusted as well as ashamed of being korean by blood.

i cannot believe this was how they resolved it. why couldn't they let it blow over???

*crying*

linda said...

it was FOUR years ago, btw

Intan Farhana , said...

my throat's hurt . I've never been crying for a long period but this is make me crying out loud . Now , i've been crying for three hours . am i dumb or something ? -_____-"

Blaise said...

I am NOT even a fan but I cannot discuss this issue enough because it's just so WRONG, WRONG, WRONG.

Anyone's who has visited/stayed abroad know the feeling of 'isolation' and 'discrimination' yet these bubble-cushioned, close-minded bunch of Korean fans think they have the right to pass make-or-break judgment on what another person did FOUR YEARS AGO?!

And I refuse to forgive JYPE and Hallyu entertainment industry for caving in to these lunatics.

-XioN- said...

apparently, one of the netizens that started this has apologized...

But wth do u need to apologize for?? Jaebum is gone... do u think a mere apology will bring him back??? huh??? wat will it take to bring oppa back??? :( so sad...

YunKhun said...

i feel so sad... only jaebeom knows the real reason for his action 4 years ago... considering his situation - more like an alien who knows nothing and yet tries to fit in in a place in which the culture is all new to him - i think, it's unfair for him to be treated this way... whatever his reason is, i'm sure at that time, it was reasonable... nobody even asked why he felt that way before... what about his feelings huh? the pain he felt? the sacrifices he made? gosh!

when people don't know anything about something, would they immediately love it? of course not... but they can learn to love it... and i'm sure jaebeom has learned that...

people can be shallow sometimes...

be strong jaebeom~~~

Kyo Nzyrahun said...

Hottest,we need to be stronger as cassi,we need jay to comeback we need him,and 2PM members need us,

Eventhough he'll comeback next year,but still cant confirmed yet,we have to do something,this is because of stupid korean netizens !

7-1= it is not still same without YOU JAY,

tracy_hweichyen said...

first it was Junsu's incident with Wai....
Now,Jae Beom????
I'm gonna miss him...
no one will be able to replace him!!!!

Jae Eun ~ Eh Byul Tea said...

What a waste of hotness and talent.
I can't believe the pressure from these morons forced him to quit. It's just not the same 2PM without him. Please come back Jay. We need you. <333

Oh, and f**k you netizens! We get Jay back, so suck on that! Jay HWAITING! <3

Ayumi said...

Can't believe the most charismatic dude of '2PM' is leaving.
Korean netizens who k*lled him with their pens should bring him back!

Park Jin-Young says his heart feels like ripping into pieces.

The following is the 'actual' Eng e-mail Jae-Bum wrote to JY:

I'VE BEEN A LITTLE PUNK IN THE PAST.
I JUST WANT TO LET YOU KNOW THAT IT WAS A LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCE.

IT MADE ME MUCH BETTER, MUCH STRONGER PERSON AND I'M THANKFUL FOR EVERYTHING YOU HAVE DONE FOR ME. REAL TALK

Stellar Tella스 텔라 텔라 said...

actually it was from four years ago. it's sad how these netizens can ruin someone's life like this. its pretty scary too. i know it wouldnt be the same but i'd like 2pm to carry on. its a waste of their hardwork if they just disband =( im not saying that they will disband though lol.

mira liyana said...

2PM will not be the same without Jaebeom... I'm not really a fan but to see Jaebeom as a leader of the group leaved for the fuss that being made by the netizens is WRONG! all 2PM fans want to see them together... how can they let this thing happened... so sad... the past is past why must they bring up the bad thing from the past just to make someone life miserable... damn you netizens and the antis!

p/s: still hoping that Jaebeom can return with 2PM... he has a great talent...

Aida said...
