Dunn Dunn Dunn Dunn…

In Dream Concert 2009, a lot of Idol Groups and Artists join together to put out a great show. This is arguably the most wanted show in Korea on 2009 after all.

Thanks to Codemonmon Season 4 that’s always be my friend in youtube, providing me with the best video quality from Dream Concert 2009 and randomrinnie to provide some of the videos.

Super Junior put out the best of them bringing out their remix of Sorry Sorry and It’s You.

2PM (minus Jaebeom) performing I Hate You and Again and Again

I’m glad to see them together and put a strong performance even though I’m a little bit sad looking at the empty space in the middle (which belong to Jay)

The hot dancing machines Girls’ Generation

KARA with it’s butt dancing ~ Wanna and Mister

The Newest Edition F(X) with La Cha Ta

4Minute with its Muzik

another obsession Super Junior M bringing out Super Girl

the secret addition 2AM on a friend’s confession

The 반짝 반짝 샤방 샤방 (sparkling / flashing / glowing) SHINee doing Juliette

But.. the most favorite performance from Dream Concert 2009 for me is… dunn.. dunn.. dun.. dunn…

Clap together for SM TOWN !!

I am in awe with the performance seeing everybody together singing harmoniously making my heart melt. A lot of things happened in 2009 for a lot of Idol groups and artist in Korea. It’s good to see the power of friendship in at least 1 entertainment company. SM Town you rock the dream concert !!

I wish these news will stop someday or at least turning into something good. But, hey the drama isn’t over yet. Tried to find out something about Jay and come across this article @ omona they didn’t:


Korean pop star returns to quiet life in Edmonds
Fans hire a plane to tow a banner over area
By Andy Rathbun
Herald Writer

EDMONDS — When Jay Park left South Korea in early September, hundreds of fans came to the airport terminal, pleading with him to stay.

The pop star gave a bow and said goodbye to the tearful fans, according to the Korea Times newspaper.

When he landed back home in the United States, no local news crews were on hand.

Park, who is in his 20s, has apparently returned to his parents’ home in Edmonds. The Korean-American is keeping a low profile after controversial remarks forced him from 2PM, a boy band that made him a star overseas.

The Internet has battered Park’s reputation and served as a gathering place for fans, who have signed petitions and hired a private plane to fly over Edmonds with a banner, asking “J. What Time Is It Now?” — a reference to one of the group’s hits.

About five years ago, Park went to a talent audition in the United States. He was recruited by JYP Entertainment of South Korea. He moved overseas and became a pop star in training.

Thousands of miles from home, he posted comments on his MySpace page. He called Korea “whack” and “gay” in 2005, when he was in his late teens, and said he hated Koreans. He wanted to come back to the U.S., he wrote.

No one paid much attention to the posts until Park became the leader of 2PM. The seven-member group’s popularity exploded earlier this year. They were all over Korean TV. They met the prime minister of Thailand.

Then the posts surfaced.

AllKPop.com, a New Jersey-based Web site dedicated to Korean pop music, has been covering the controversy.

Johnny Noh, the site’s founder, said anger at Park was stoked by complex issues of national pride. Park’s U.S. origins played into the resentment, while the comments, heavy with American slang, were misinterpreted.

“I don’t know how to explain it,” Noh, 28, said. “They took it more offensively than they would anywhere else.”

After the comments came out, Park said he was leaving the group.

“I’m sorry I couldn’t be a strong leader and older brother,” he said, the Korea Times reported.

Park’s abrupt departure rattled thousands of fans, particularly when the boy band announced it would carry on without its own version of Justin Timberlake. (uh…idk what to think of this comparison, maybe besides the leader aspect they both had)

A KOMO TV news story posted online about his return to the U.S. drew more than 1,000 comments last week.

“There have been a lot of rumors and speculation on whether the entertainment label kicked him out or if he left of his own will,” Noh said.

An online petition gathered more than 25,000 signatures to support Park. The petition called Korea “an extremely proud country,” and said people were treating the singer’s remarks irrationally.

Fans also launched a Twitter page, JaySkyMsg. They raised about $2,000 and hired a private plane. According to the posts, the plane buzzed over Seattle, Mountlake Terrace and Edmonds last Monday, towing the banner.

Despite the hubbub, life in Edmonds has been seemingly quiet.

Neighbors who knew about Park’s fame said the singer’s family have been their normal, polite selves.

Last week, a young man who appeared to be Jay Park was walking out the door. He smiled before getting into a sedan with an older person, but declined to comment on the past month.

“I need to go to work,” he said, without elaboration.

Whoa.. this is the news that makes all the hottest around the world having a short breath.. Being one of the silent diligent reader (meaning: never really commented on any of the forums / post), reading this news really broke everything all around. Is this another conspiracy from JYP ? or JYP trying to get away with all of the Hottest? or probably he really wants to get Jaebeom back?
I’m really curious what happened in Seattle…. really really curious.. Thanks to 2OD to update the news all the time ^^

The most craziest thing is here: where Jaebeom news is in the Seattle TV news flash..  at this point.. I’m really speechless.. They showed Jaebeom’s house in Seattle which I’m afraid all those crazy netizens will hunt him down to his house and send a North Korean Nuclear to his house.. and yeah I’m exaggerating 😦 and I put a little bit of my sentimental values in my comment.

Hopefully this matter will stop anytime soon.. seriously.. T.T

Fiuhh.. thinking hard and I came up with 3. Why did I do this? I don’t know. I just do what I think it’s right not because the whole world is doing it ^^

Hopefully you guys can support 2oneday’s project ! I really think it’s a good experience because by writing it, I remember why I like 2PM at the first place.

Here’s my thought:

Some people say that I’m a hard core Korean followers. I might not agree with that comment but I want to say that even tho I’m not Korean, I’m proud of Korean Culture and It’s people. JB’s case makes everyone joining forces together to support what’s right and accept the facts. That’s the most important thing and I despise all the netizens who lights up the fire and creates this havoc.

Thus, SUPPORT 2OD ! ^^
