JYPE has spoken up about what’s next for 2PM’s Jaebum. After the whole MySpace incident, JYPE has decided to keep Jaebum away from the media for now. In otherwords, 2PM won’t have any broadcast schedules, as well as their scheduled events. They will, however, keep recording their album and continue practicing their dances. It’s also been clarified, Jaebum will NOT be taken out of the group.
Pretty much this is what I thought would end up happening. It’s a good idea to keep Jaebum away from the media for now until the whole thing dies down. I wonder if they still will be making a comeback in October. Or is that too soon for this whole situation to die down? Either way, even though, like I said before, I don’t think what Jaebum did was right, I’m glad he’s staying in the group. 2PM’s not the same without him.

It will not be easy for 2PM member JaeBum, who has been criticised for his offending messages written on his MySpace page, to get out of the public eye and criticisms.
With that, JYP Entertainment has gone with the situation, and had decided accordingly not to have JaeBum appear in the media’s eye for the time being.
He will be put on a self-discipline period for the time being.
This will also have a significant effect for the group’s upcoming album to be release early-October. With that JYP’s representative said on 7th September, “For the time being, 2PM will not have any broadcast schedule, and all scheduled events will also be cancelled. But the recording for their album and dance practice will still continue accordingly.”
JYP’s representative also said, “The messages which JaeBum wrote in 2005 on his own MySpace page is just an exaggeration to his friends back in the States. But because of the way and his language of expressing his ideas, he has received many disagreements and unhappiness from the mass public. Currently JaeBum is reflecting on his wrong in the dormitary and he is also skipping meals. He understands the magnitude of his mistake.”
Before this, many netizens are calling for him to be banned from broadcast shows and even from the group.
Park Jinyoung, representative of JYP Entertainment, has spoken up about Jaebum’s future activities with 2PM. “Although, we feel very guilty and sorry for all the people who have been disappointed by Park Jaebum’s past mistakes, I will not be taking him out of the group. Many people have been suggesting ideas of banning Park Jaebum out of 2PM, but that will never happen. We believe that he has done something wrong, but as a whole, we do not think it is enough to be taking his dreams and goals away from him. This was not a decision made by only the JYPE staff, but it was something all of the fellow 2PM members have agreed to.”
