There is some intense action going on over Jaebum’s leaving of 2PM. Hottests are angry, and they’re protesting! A boycott’s gonna take place on the 10th, while a protest is going to take place on the 12th. They’re angry that JYPE did nothing to stop Jaebum from leaving the group and the country.
Well yes, we want Jaebum to come back but…shouldn’t they respect Jaebum’s decision? It’s not use FORCING him to come back. Jaebum will be back when he’s ready. And how would the Hottests know whether JYPE really didn’t try to persuade him to stay? Perhaps they did, but respected Jaebum’s decision to leave. And boycotting from buying tickets to the Dream concert and 2PM albums? What on earth? That pulls all the other 2PM members into the water. As if they’re not upset enough.
