Park Jin Young has been kept really busy these couple of months with producing single for the Wonder Girls and the grooming of his proteges from Mnet “Hot Blood” documentary program. 4 members from that program have already debuted as 2AM, a singing subgroup under One Day on 11th July on Music Bank. The other 7 members will soon debut as 2PM that specialises in rapping and dancing in an official statement and pictures released today.
This will be Park Jin Young’s first boy band in 10 years after G.O.D. After grooming G.O.D, Rain and Wonder Girls in recent times, JYP expressed, “2PM is a group that I have invested my pride in. Since they entered JYP Entertainment, I kept telling them that they have to be different from existing boy bands. Otherwise, don’t even think of debuting. All went through different kinds of training these past few years and I believe they will break the stereotype that one usually associates with boy bands once they debut.
2PM official album release is set for 4th September.
