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*

More 2PM!
