Regardless of the unbearable 96.8 degree heat, over 10,000 fans attended the "2012 JYP Nation Concert" to show their support.
Yesterday (July 4), artists and idol groups in the JYP Entertainment gathered at the Seoul Olympic Gymnasium to perform at the "2012 JYP Nation Concert" which was last held back in 2010.
The hearts of the devoted fans were moved way before their feet danced to the performances. Idol groups and artists like Wonder Girls, 2PM, miss A, JJ Project, 2AM and San E were present at the concert to perform in front of their fans. JYP Entertainment's leader, Park Jin Young definitely knows what he is doing at all times. Every single member of the JYP family including Park Jin Young himself provided the fans with the best possible performance they could put on for the fans that showed up regardless of the torturous heat.
The concert was opened by miss A with performances of their songs "Touch", "Good-Bye Baby", and "Bad Girl Good Girl." They heated up the concert with a powerful performance that hyped up every single person who was present at the concert.
The second idol group to perform was the Wonder Girls. The Wonder Girls performed with a live band and delivered a sexy performance. The fans became one with the members of the Wonder Girls while they performed songs like "So Hot", "Like This" and "Like Money." It was impossible for the fans to hide their excitement as each member of the Wonder Girls sang their hearts out on stage.
A sense of calm returned to the fans when JJ Project, San E, 2AM and JOO appeared on stage to sing emotional songs that had the power to bring tears to the fans' eyes. JJ Project and San E performed "Bounce" and "Lovesick" to create a lovey-dovey atmosphere in the audience. 2AM on the other hand performed, "You Wouldn't Answer My Calls", "You Were Mine" and "I Wonder If You Hurt Like Me." All the artists mentioned performed above expectations and impressed the audience with their musical talents.
The climax of the excitement in the audience was created by 2PM. Even from the slightest view of the 2PM members, the audience began to scream so loud that the noise was almost deafening. All the audience in the 2nd and 3rd floors stood up as soon as 2PM appeared on stage and showed support as they performed.
2PM members performed "Hot", "I Hate You", "I'll Be back", and "Heartbeat." From the beginning of their performance until the very end, the audience couldn't stay in their seats. The fans especially went wild with excitement when Taecyeon began to rip his shirt followed by the rest of the members who also ripped their shirts. The audience almost fainted with excitement at the sight of their perfectly built bodies.
Nichkhun of 2PM was unable to perform at the "2012 JYP Nation" with the rest of the members because of his recent driving under the influence incident. On July 24, Nichkhun was driving with a blood alcohol content of 0.056% when he got into an accident with a man on a motorcycle in Seoul.
During the concert, 2PM members stated, "We would like to apologize that all six of us couldn't be here today. We will never forget our fans that have always been there for us no matter what. Thank you" and expressed their gratitude. 2PM members continued, "We will pay you back by giving you an unforgettable performance. We'll make sure you have a good time."
Half way into the concert, Park Jin Young appeared on stage to perform "You're The One", "I Have a Girlfriend" and "The House You Live In" and impressed the audience with his professionalism and charismatic performances. Park Jin Young continued to smile regardless how much he was sweating from his passionate performances.
Park Jin Young stated, "JYP Nation wouldn't have happened without you guys. We wanted to show you so many things that we didn't have the chance to show you at any other place. Whenever I work with 2PM or the Wonder Girls, there are some songs that I really want to sing and perform myself. Today, I will specially sing and dance to some of those songs."
Park Jin Young and singers, who used to be under contract with JYP Entertainment, appeared on stage together to perform a collaboration stage. Together, they performed songs like "Be My Baby", "Again and Again" and "Bad Boy Good Boy."
In addition, Jang Wooyoung and Jo Kwon's solo performances also worked up the audience with their unique styles. 2PM appeared on stage once again to perform the finale performance of the "2012 JYP Nation Concert" and sang "10 Out of 10." 10 out of 10 was the score given to the performances that day.
A representative from JYP Entertainment released a statement saying, "Even in this heat, all the artists of JYP Entertainment worked really hard to prepare for this concert. Everybody enjoyed the concert and the artists were very happy performing in front of their fans."
It is the first time in two years since JYP Entertainment last held a "JYP Nation Concert." The first "JYP Nation" was held in 2010 in Seoul, then in 2011 in Japan. "2012 JYP Nation Concert" will continue in Japan on August 18 and 19.
