Introduction
An attractive four-member ballad boy band, 2AM has gained overwhelming popularity thanks to their mellow ballads and sweet harmony. Their first full-length album, titled ‘Saint o’Clock,’ was released in 2010 in eight Asian countries including Singapore, Taiwan, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Thailand. Ever since, 2AM’s popularity has spread like wildfire throughout Asia, even winning the top spot on the weekly HMV K-POP album sales chart in Singapore.

Group Introduction

The name ‘2AM’ was given to the group by producer Park Jin-young and is said to reflect the band’s sensitivity by capturing the feeling of the early morning (2:00am), a time when you can sit back and reflect upon your day. The four members of 2AM are Jo Kwon, Seulong, Jinwoon, and Changmin. After making their debut with their digital single ‘This Song’ in 2008, 2AM continued to produce hits such as ‘Confession of a Friend,’ ‘Even if I die I can't let you go,’ and ‘You wouldn't answer my calls.’
