Weekly Round-up (18): December 11 – 31, 2017

I’m doing weekly round-ups now, which will include any media I consumed for the past week, from Monday to Sunday. I’d be glad if you end up getting some recommendations but I’m only doing this as a form of a media journal (to make it easy to write reviews later on). And fine, an actual journal too. Here goes! (Three weeks worth because the holidays got to me and I ended up too lazy to blog.)

Mr. Idol Releases Trailers

Remember that movie Jay Park (Park Jaebeom) is starring in? It has released two trailers! ❤

It stars Kim Su Ro as entertainment mogul Sa Hee Moon, who runs top talent agency “Star Music” and Park Ye Jin as Oh Goo Joo, a former music producer who quit the business after the death of one of her clients. She runs into Lee Yoo Jin, acted by Ji Hyun Woo, who was a former trainee of Star Music but was kicked out. Goo Joo believes Yoo Jin has star potential and helps produce a new idol band, Mr. Children, with Yoo Jin on lead vocals. As the group gets exponentially famous, Sa Hee Moon from Star Music works to sabotage the groups chances for success.

Jay is part of Mr. Children, as well as Jang Seo Won, who many of us may know as Soo Myung from Heartstrings. Mr. Idol premieres in October.

JAY PARK, MY BB <3

from jayparkaom@youtube (yeah, it’s HIS youtube channel <3)

I was hyperventilating when I saw this. I dunno if Jay is still hurt or not deep inside with all these issues but I just love seeing him. And now, he has a youtube channel and it looks like he would be uploading more videos! I miss him singing, performing and that ABS FLASHING. He was rapping, smiling although I think he lost weight. Jay bb ❤ He made his own lyrics to the rap, just check it out. I was smiling so much while watching this. I remember listening to their songs when I miss him, to hear his voice. And it doesn’t hurt that I like this song! Jay, upload more vids! <333

And now, I gotta make a Jay Park category. Hmm.

JYPE’s Statement on Jaebum

Hello, this is JYP Entertainment.

Last September, 2PM’s member Park Jaebum announced his withdrawal from the group and returned to Seattle after the shock of his words he wrote on the internet during his trainee time. We will reveal the course of action henceforth.

Although those words from the case that occurred last September did not look good to everyone, they were his words during his hard trainee days and was written on his personal space. The company agreed with Park Jaebum goon’s opinion to take time for self discipline; this does not mean we thought that he would stop all activities in the entertainment industry or forever leave 2PM.

At the time the company could have convinced Park Jaebum goon to stay and promote with as a 7 membered 2PM and held back his withdrawal. Though it could be considered that parts of Park Jaebum goon’s words were exaggeratedly mistranslated by netizens it was definite that those words could have hurt many people. In that situation, if we were to enthusiastically embrace Park Jaebum goon and promote with the 7 member 2PM, this could have made the image of Park Jaebum goon to the public forever negative and so we agreed with his decision.

When a celebrity makes a mistake that disappoints the public and they do not apologize for their own mistakes, or if the company embraces that celebrity, there have been many cases before when this further changed the views of the public toward the negative direction and therefore we thought it would be good to show his willing withdrawal from the group to have time for self-discipline.

Thankfully enough after Park Jaebum goon’s withdrawal, many of the public opinions changed and showed their thoughts to give him another chance.

Ever since Park Jaebum goon’s case, we did not reveal anything else because we did not want the public opinion to be swayed by negative influences, but since Park Jaebum goon has returned to Seattle, the company started to search for excellent vocal, dance and acrobatic teachers and the company’s producer Park Jinyoung personally visited Seattle last September 19th to consult with these teachers to complete a kind learning program.

All the current commercials, performances, promotions and contracts and of course the contract’s target that 2PM has been involved in have been made not with the current 6 member group, but with the terms that the group could return as 7 members after Park Jaebum goon’s return, so we waited for his come back.

During last year November, the company proposed for a return for Park Jaebum through an album that would be released this year in April, and with Park Jaebum goon’s agreement plans confirmed, he would have returned home in the third week of February with a press conference and promotions as a 7 member group would have started.

Due to the return of kind public views after his withdrawal, Park Jaebum goon’s return to the group would improve all their efforts, more than anything we would have been able to receive the unified support of the fans again. The company and all 7 members were expanding their hopes.

But, if the news of a comeback were to be revealed too quickly, we were afraid that the kind view of the public would once again turn negative. Even with the roaring voices of criticism from fans, we did not reveal anything about this comeback.

But, last December 22nd Park Jaebum goon made a startling call with the company head revealing that he committed a big personal mistake.

It was a mistake that occurred during last summer’s Again and Again promotions that was being was realized in afterthought that caused a problem.

Though Park Jaebum goon could not reveal the information because it was a personal problem, this problem is even bigger than the problem that caused him to withdraw last September, and is a problem that could cause an even bigger public problem. Though we wanted to discuss with the other 6 members, at the time the boys were so excited about the news of Park Jaebum goon’s comeback and were enthusiastically preparing for the award performances; we could not tell them this news. Following their year-end promotion completion, we told them the news on January 3rd. Receiving this big shock, they contemplated heavily and three days later on January 6th, all 6 members revealed that it would be hard for them to promote as 2PM with Park Jaebum goon.

The company came to a conclusion that Park Jaebum goon was not fit to be an affiliated celebrity with them and decided to terminate his contact.

Though we wanted to immediately address this to everyone, it was because of Park Jaebum goon’s personal situation that we are revealing this now and we hope for your understanding.

As much as 2PM are precious singers, and as much as the many hearts of those that love them, as well as the many public opinions that focused on this case, all the information above is being revealed in its truthful entirety with not even a bit of lies.

The reason we are revealing these details through this message is because, if we were to make a safe reason through lies, the mistrust in the fans opinions and thoughts would become as large as a snowball.

All of 2PM, and to all the people who were waiting for Park Jaebum goon’s return we apologize sincerely to reveal this regretful news to everyone.

The company will prepare even harder with the 6 members to greet you with a better image.

Thank you.

Guess I need to post this since I already reacted. Cel and I would be wearing black tomorrow, mourning for this news. But then we’re still in denial stage so we don’t actually believe this. 1:59PM even divides their income by 7 when Jaebum already left? TSK. I won’t believe this. I believe in Jay. ❤

P.S. JYPE makes themselves sound like the good ones. As if they are faultless and I really can’t believe that the other 6 members said that. Ohwell. But then what is this personal mistake? Grr, why am I asking this when I don’t believe this. *still not entertaining the thought that Jay left for realz*

Park Jaebum

Okay, I know some people think that Hottests are illogical for not supporting 1:59PM and wanting Jaebum to come back when he isn’t. Okay.

I was waiting for Jaebum’s return ever since he left and I never grew tired. Even if my friends were entertaining the thought that he might never come back, I never thought of that. I constantly believe that he’ll be back soon and 1:59PM will be happy.

Well, I still support 1:59PM but there’s this part of me that misses Jay and is not contented with the 1:59PM. Uhm, contented may not be the right word but I believe they will look better and happier with Jay around, failing Korean, or whatever. I was not into Jay that much before he left, because boy was I so in love with Wooyoung. But when he left, I realized that I took him for granted. His presence was so missed by me and by most Hottests. Maybe people can’t understand why we’re like this, crying buckets. I really cried when I read comments of people giving up on Jay or even people pissed off that the issue has not died down yet because of Hottests. But then, fandom is fandom and Hottests love Jay.

OMG, I actually wrote this. Haha, it’s long might as well post it in wordpress. So much for telling myself to not comment on this Jay-is-not-coming-back and here I am, not studying and blabbering and ranting about Jay.

I don’t wanna defend myself and Hottests but I think most of us can’t really accept this. If this were really true, which is a thought I’m not entertaining (this is not entertaining this is just stating or whatever) for fear of crying and for my hope and trust in Jay, I guess in time we’ll move on. But not now. We are deeply hurt by this announcement and if I were in Korea I would join this protest in front of JYPE even if I’m still a minor and would probably not be allowed to yeah, go out.

Still Jay, I miss ya and I love ya like all the Hottests in the world. We hope you’ll still come back. ❤ *still not entertaining the thought of him leaving for realz*

I miss Jaebeom. </3

I just realized that my blog’s header is well, 2PM. 2PM being goofy and funny and all. And I just realized that today because I’ve been too busy with school that I haven’t logged in in a while. And it rips my heart out to see 2PM these days. I can’t listen to their songs in my phone, I can’t watch the Wild Bunny episodes that I missed because I can’t stand to see Jay now, knowing that he left the group. It’s not that I’m boycotting 2PM, I love them soooo much but I can’t see them incomplete. Reading news about Jay here and there makes me cry. And I’m not exaggerating because tears are welling up right now. Thinking of Jay (and an incomplete 2PM) makes me sad, really sad. Sad that I can cry all day thinking of the good old days. I promised myself before that I’ll drain Youtube for 2PM videos but I can’t do that now even though uni gives me free time. I just can’t. Seeing Jay and the rest of 2PM so happy will make me cry because they’re not in that state anymore.

The day before Jay left 2PM is the day before my friend’s birthday. I went home, ate dinner, did some homework and opened that PC for my daily Kpop dose. When I logged in at Yahoo! Messenger, an offline message welcomed me from my friend that will celebrate her birthday tomorrow that Jay has left 2PM already. I can’t believe what she just told me so I rushed to allkpop and it dawned on me that he actually left Korea that day to go back to Seattle. I wailed. As in. I was crying while chatting with my friend. I just seemed so unreal and I don’t want to believe it. When I watched the video of him in the airport, my heart was crushed into a million pieces. His sullen face, GAH, I still remember it. I kept crying, crying that night. I slept late because I can’t stop crying. You might tell me that I’m way over the top but I love 2PM so much. That was the first heartbreak Kpop gave me. My friend told me that I can’t be sad the next day because it’s her birthday. Well, the next day, I kept my word but eventually, I can’t. I even told her that I can go on with my birthday with no gifts and greetings just to bring Jay back. If Jay will come back that they can forget greeting me on my birthday which is by the way on November 3.

Days passed and I still feel gloomy over the issue. I mean if I remember it or I read some news about it, tears start welling up in my ducts and well, I try to suppress them since crying in the jeepney will look waaay awkward.

And while reading what Jay’s father’s friend has to say yesterday, I can’t not cry. Ohmy, Jay. I miss you and the rest of 2PM. Saranghae~

It really helped that I wrote this post later and not right after the incident ’cause I’ll probably bash the netizens. Well, I don’t need to bash them now since I already did that with my friends.

Saranghae, Jay! Aja aja hwaiting!

And now, I must replace my header since this header will make me cry every time I see my blog. But what should I put as replacement? Gah. I have nothing in my PC but 2PM headies. XC
