2PM to Debut in Japan

Korean boy group 2PM are set to debut in Japan by the end of the year. They’ll be re-releasing their Korean debut album “01:59 PM” in Japan and will also include the bonus track “Thank You”. This also means that their first official single (whenever that’s released) will most likely be original and not a rehash of a past hit like what the K-Pop girl groups are currently doing. They’ll be releasing a DVD special about their history so it’ll be interesting to see how they handle everything Jay Park (Jaebeom) related.

When I found out about 2PM’s Japanese debut, I was pretty happy since 2PM is my favourite boy group amongst all the other boy groups in Korea and Japan so I’m hoping they make a stronger impression than BIG BANG and Tohoshinki but honestly, I have doubts that 2PM will gain much success in Japan, at least in the beginning. Not once have I ever heard a famous person in Japan mention 2PM. KARA had Gekidan Hitori constantly fanboy about them, certain members from AKB48 and Morning Musume fangirl about K-Pop boy groups. Acchan likes Tohoshinki, Mariko Shinoda and Ai Takahashi like BIG BANG + G-Dragon, and Junjun likes Super Junior. She actually wears “Super Junior” socks. As far as I know, right now 2PM doesn’t have much hype in Japan. It’s still early so right now so hopefully they’ll be able to get some attention.
