“Sampai jumpa, sampai jumpa, terima kasih!” (See you, see you, thank you!) Roared the members of 2PM,
or rather not live, but through a repetitive video played while the
room of medias waited for the six tall, chiseled members of the
energetic boyband: Junsu, Taecyon, Nichkhun, Junho, Wooyoung and Chansung. Arrived the night before their activites today in Jakarta, Indonesia (7/12) for the second time, they ran late from a national TV program for shooting before properly greeting the media at Menara Bank Mega’s Auditorium an hour later. Clad in white, the group that has been dubbed as the only beast idols for their greek god features that is not seen on many other teenager idols.
“Hello Indonesia, we are back again, thank you for everyone who is here today with us! We are 2PM!”
The six members who first debuted with “10 Out Of 10″ single in 2008 under JYP Entertainment
label were indeed back, as they have promised during their debut
performance in the country for “Hands Up Tour” last year. This time, “Indomaret Presents WHAT TIME IS IT 2PM LIVE TOUR in Jakarta” concert tour slated for the next day (8/12) at MEIS Ancol.
Different to their last year’s concert tour in promotion of their
latest album release with the same title, “Hands Up”, this year’s “What
Time Is It” Tour has additional counterparts not seen before, such as “a performing live band that accompanies and new remixed and edited songs.“
The band who has made over 7000 Hottests crazy during their first
Indonesian performance indeed is shooting popularity through their
Japanese release “Republic of 2PM” and their ongoing tour which started
in Shanghai, China and thus, sparked the question whether they have
their own ‘Me-time’ and how do they spend it.
“Since we’re 2PM, and all of us members like to go out and do
sports or go hit the fitness center, that itself is our way of relaxing.
And so today in Jakarta, I would do some swimming,” shared Junho.
It was reported how the members who had arrived late midnight on
the same day had gone out to rest but one member who shone in striking
red training suit, Taecyon, was seen to hit the gym the moment they arrived in the hotel. What a way to unwind!
Since they have ultimately achieved the hottest fans on Earth and
continuous rise in the music charts domestically and their international
venture, 2PM wishes to later finish this Asia concert and by next year,
a new album. We can only expect more original penned lyrics from the
members, which we know how Junsu and Junho had contributed a song each in “Hands Up” album.
And so, with 2PM to have achieved their dreams, what else are they aiming for?
“My own mission was to be a member of 2PM. Now, my next mission
is to give power through our voices; I would like to help the poor,” shared maknae Chansung, where Taecyon wants to continue the “beast
idol – as everyone labeled us, because we’re the first and the only
one, to continue to introduce new exciting concepts while retaining our
original manly concept. I can only wish that we can all succeed
We can only express our excitement to wait until the next day for
their full-fledged standalone concert as they properly greeted and
exited the conference. Who made a special appearance for the show? What
were their solo performances like and who made Hottest Indonesia be the
most satisfied fans of the night?
