[News] 2PM chooses Shinhwa as their role model
2PM chose Shinhwa as their role model!
2PM is already one of the longer running idol groups, as they’re entering their 6th year in 2013. The boys had a press conference before their Tokyo Dome concert, and they talked about the past 5 years as 2PM. Taecyeon said, “People say that an idol group that lasts for more than 5 years is long lasting. I think that the Tokyo Dome is another start. This concert also allowed us to look back into our past. I want to call it a new start that tells us which direction to go.”
Jun.K added, “After our debut, we had good things, and not so good things. But when we had bad things, we were able to become closer. We come together now thinking of one another as family. It’s not like we never have conflicting opinions, so we set up a rule. If we don’t agree with someone’s opinions, then we get together to talk and solve it. We’ve been doing that.”
Wooyoung continued, “Our teamwork now is better than ever. If we have something we’re disappointed in, we try to fix it right away. We love Shinhwa sunbaenim, the long-running idol. They’re our role model. We’re going to do our best for a long time and fulfill our own dreams.”
Jun.K concluded, “There’s something I want to say. We were only able to promote in Japan like this because sunbaes such as BoA, TVXQ, and Rain paved the road for us. We want to thank them first.”
The Tokyo Dome concert on the 20th and 21st were the boys’ last overseas promotions before their comeback in mid-May.
