Move aside, soft and cuddly idol boys! 2PM has come to challenge the overly boyish image of boy bands in Korea with their strong visuals and performances. The appearance of the relatively rough-looking 2PM members on the Korean music scene has even led to the coining of a new term: ‘jimseungdol,’ meaning ‘beastly idol.’

2PM’s single album ‘Again & Again,’ was released in 2009 and achieved No. 1 on Thailand’s Channel V Chart. In 2010, the band went on tour in Taiwan, Thailand, and Singapore. In December of 2010, the band made its debut in Japan and in May 2011, went on tour in Sapporo, Fukuoka, Osaka, and Tokyo.

Group Introduction

The name 2PM was given to the band by its producer Park Jin-young to reflect the members’ passion and charisma, as 2PM (2:00 in the afternoon) is the most active and hottest time of the day. 2PM is comprised of 6 members: Taecyeon, Nichkhun, Wooyoung, Chansung, Junho, and Junsu. The band released its first single ‘Hottest Time of the Day’ in 2008 and is known for hits such as ‘10 Jeom Manjeome 10 Jeom’ (10 Points Out of 10 Points), ‘Again & Again,’ ‘Heartbeat,’ and ‘I’ll Be Back.’
