Group Interview

Junsu: This is the type of song that has a catchy melody that will stick in your head.

2PM has recently released their new single, “I’m your man” after their first single “Take Off” in May. It is a song that talks about protecting their special woman and perfectly fits their “beastly” image.

Wooyoung: Because we’ve recorded this in the middle of our hectic schedule, we’re very worried whether we’ve done well or not.

On stage, those worries were completely blown away by the cheering that they’ve received. Following the “airplane dance” they’ve shown us in their first single, this time they’ve challenged the “necktie dance”!

Junho: This is the first time we’ve experimented with including items in our performance.

Nichkhun: This also the first time that 2PM wore suits. What do you think?

2PM: A lot of meaning was put into the necktie that appeared in the music video. For example, in the scene when Taecyeon takes off the necktie that was covering the woman’s eye. The message we want to send is that we want to rescue everyone out of this dark and scary world. Please certainly check out this song that is full of our feeling.

By the way, in what kind of situation does everyone feel that he wants to “protect” his woman like what is said in the lyrics?

2PM: When we are able to meet with our fans that always come to support us with all they have! We are always especially moved when they are cheering for us passionately during our live performance.

Everyone that has been cheering for them must feel very energized after hearing these words from them.

[TRANS] 'Woman That Chooses Ranking'

Hello! Many of you have been wondering about this show segment with Hong Seokcheon, so we have translated that part of the video for you. We feel it's better to see it rather than read an article.
People might have been too quick to jump on this because we do not know the situation that was involved, but I won't say there is nothing to fuss about, because this segment leaves it open to debate. Please form your own impressions after watching the clip and remember to remain respectful to other commenters. (:

The woman you wouldn’t want to be friends with the most?
today, being ranked first is a bad thing. The reason is the most important
MC: So, today who is ranking them?
MC2: 100 women in their 20s
[women in their 20s are the scariest to the ‘qualifying women’]
MC: woman you wouldn’t want to be friends with, so first place is a bad thing right? So today there is a penalty for first place.
[scared ‘qualifying women’]
MC: Just for today, being first is bad.
MC: HSC have you ever had your offer of friendship turned down?
HSC: Rather than friends, I’ve asked for a close hyung-dongsaeng (close older male-younger male) relationship but was turned down by 2pm’s Junho.
MC: Of course, because you’re even older than Junho’s boss…to be hyung-dongsaeng is a bit…
HSC: Oh it wasn’t like that, he said ‘hyung that’s a little difficult for me’ like that
[carefully and respectfully turned down by 2pm’s junho]
MC: Junho is a someone with really small eyes…when he smiles very, like this..
HSC: For me whether the eyes are small or big I like them all, it doesn’t matter
[act a little embarrassed at least]
ASY: He had a boyfriend in the past who resembled Junho a bit.
HSC: Ah also, Junho ssi, women also think so, he has a very charming face.
That’s right~
[Charming 2pm Junho]

Billboard K-Pop Hot 100 Launches; Sistar Is No. 1 on New Korea Chart

Billboard goes K-Pop today (Aug. 25) with the launch of a new chart, the Billboard K-Pop Hot 100. The tally, which ranks Korea's top-selling songs, kicks off with girl group Sistar's "So Cool" grabbing the No. 1 slot and beating out second-place Leesang and 2NE1, who land not only at No. 3 (with "Ugly") but also No. 14 ("Hate You") and No. 21 ("I Am The Best") on the chart dated Sept. 3.

The Billboard K-Pop Hot 100 chart, launched in conjunction with Billboard Korea, is based on digital sales via leading websites as well as downloads from mobile service sites using an industry-standard formula and the most credible music data sources within Korea. The K-Pop Hot 100 debuts simultaneously here on Billboard.com, in the international chart section of Billboard.biz, in Billboard magazine, and also on Billboard Korea's website, billboard.co.kr.

"The launch of the Billboard K-Pop Hot 100 chart is a milestone event, as it will provide the Korean music market with what we believe is Korea's most accurate and relevant song ranking," says Silvio Pietroluongo, Billboard's Director of Charts. "We're excited to be expanding Billboard's globally recognized Hot 100 chart franchise into this country, and look forward to enhancing the K-Pop Hot 100 chart in the near future with additional data as well as creating new charts that showcase the breadth of Korean music."

Meanwhile the artists dominating the top of the inaugural Billboard K-Pop Hot 100 reflect the fact that hit-making girl groups are a top attraction in Korean music. Sistar and 2NE1 are just two examples. T-ara, made up of seven young ladies, has secured the No. 4 position as well as grabbing No. 73 (visit Billboard.biz soon for positions No. 51-100). Miss A, whose influential management company also manages the ever popular Wonder Girls, rounds out the top five with their single "Good-bye Baby." Here's a closer look at five of the female groups ruling the K-Pop 100 this week.

In the inaugural week of the Kpop Hot 100 chart, both Homme and 2PM make it in the top 50!

Homme comes in at #15 with "A Man Should Laugh" and 2PM comes in at #47 with "Hands Up"! Visit the chart HERE!

[NEWS] Oricon List Ranks Starting this week, Oricon Daily

After School starts this week at #10 , I'm not sure whether they closed the week of the debut at #6 or #8 because I've seen some reports saying they've fallen into #8 (and I bet those are from yesterday).

However, the girls are falling slowly, I just wish they could pick up a couple of positions or keep in top 10 for one week more, but the trouble is the amount of new releases every week and the acts being already huge, like Koda Kumi, Kanjani 8, Kuwata Kei or SDN48.

Kiss-My-Ft.2 just re-gained #1, while Kanjani8 descended from 1 to 4, 2PM is at 6,Hapinness went down till #8. SHU-I has also debuted and are picking up in the charts, right now they're at #7.

If anyone has official reports on the actual position for their first week (we know first day they debuted at #6), I would love to know ;D

The girls should be able to expand their now Japanese fanbase after a couple of a-nation, those gums selling, and the Hello Kitty collabo (though those won't come out until September)... shame the Coming Soon! Performance got cancelled. They will need more TV live performances (haven't done one yet) if they want to keep it up.

[TRANS] 2PM Nichkhun's 'Seoul Diary' (1) - Feedback for 'Hands up'? "It's very fun and exciting right now"

[COLUMN] 110721 2PM Nichkhun's 'Seoul Diary' (1) - Feedback for 'Hands up'? "It's very fun and exciting right now"

A handsome singer, Nichkhun has the special ability to make everyone who meets him fall in love with his kindness and nice manners. Recently, 2PM has received lots of good feedback for their 2nd full length album "Hands Up." After releasing their latest song "Hands Up" on the 20th of last month, the song quickly became #1 on many charts, quickly showing their "10 out of 10" liveliness.

The liveliness of 2PM is not constricted only in this country, but all over the world, and no doubt all over Asia. One of the 6 members is Nichkhun who is the only foreigner in the group who was born in Thailand, but now he has live in Korea for over 5 years and has already adapted to the language and food there.

Since his debut, Nichkhun has been able to speak Thai (which for sure is his mother tongue), Korean, and English, and along with some Chinese.

His story from the year 2006, from holding his dream to be a singer and his decision move to Korea to his evolution into "singer Nichkhun" kpop star of 2011 will start on the 21st in "Issue Daily" in "Nichkhun's Seoul Diary"

Nichkhun promises to tell his story sincerely in this "Seoul Diary," including the story of a little Thai boy who used to be fragile different from his body image who grows up to be a Hangul star who has become the interest of many people, his deep worries, his experiences in Korea, and his bright dreams.

"Nichkhun's Seoul Diary" will start with a story about their most recent album and will have 10 parts.

Hello, this is 2PM's Nichkhun. Please watch after me (smiles)." Nichkhun greeted reports with a friendly smile and now he will tell his story for 'Nichkhun's Seoul Diary."

When asked to talk about his most recent album "Hands Up" a smile immediately came to his face, you can tell the pure happiness in his face reflects the popularity they are receiving now.

"Because the song "Hands Up" is such a fun and energetic song, it really is nice to be having fun with our promotions, especially since our debut song "10 out of 10" most of our songs have been sad and gloomy, we are very lucky to have a fun that his lively and fresh and we're tired of the dark and gloomy environment (hahaha)"

Whether it is because they changed the mood from a dark to a more energtic one like Nichkhun said or not, the sales and feedback for this album is not normal. Like was said, they received many awards and topped many charts. Right now, 2PM has already won 5 trophies from TV music programs and they are just on their uphill part.

"We didn't think that people would like it this much. Thank you like always for liking this song and for giving such positive feedback. We (2PM) are very happy and appreciative and we are able to do this because of everyone working together."

Lastly, Nichkhun said to fans, jyp employees, and staff, "I would like to thank fans who have been by our sides since our debut, friends at JYPE who have strongly guided us through, and the staff, it's because of every single one of you that I am me today. Thank you. I will be a Nichkhun that won't disappoint you. Fighting."
