2PM~ My Growing Addiction

(BTW- The guy on the very left is the youngest. WTF!!!?!?!! He's 19! He looks like he's 25!!)
I thought that before I go to the dentist to have them drill my teeth and gums, I would share the Asian world with you. Again.

This time is the band 2PM. Here are the member profiles.

Jaebeom (Speaks fluent English because he was born and raised in the U.S)

(Also speaks English fluently. He's also Thai, so not only did he have to learn Korean, he had to leave behind English. He slips up sometimes and goes into angry rants in English. It's funny.)

Chansung participated in the same survival game as Junho but lost. He then auditioned again and later received the title of being the maknae or the youngest of the group.

In the picture from left to right. Bare with me I just learned their names a few days ago.

Junsu, Jaebum, Junho, Nichkyun, Wooyoung, Chansung, and Taecyeon. I might have gotten Wooyoung and Junho mixed up.... TT-TT

This was their song that hit #1 in the charts, and since then, they've only been growing in fame. I think this is the fastest Korean band I've seen get so popular so quick. With their new release of their single "I Hate You," it's already hit #1 on all internet websites and weekly charts. But this was the song that rose them to fame. AND, despite being put up about 3 months ago, it already has 1,800,000 hits on youtube, which is AMAZING. I'm very impressed.
(Just to give you an example on how HUGE that number is, DBSK (literally the most popular band in all of Asia) released a hit song called 'Mirotic', and despite being out for a little over half a year, it only has about 900,000 views. So, YEAH.)

This is their song Again and Again. And don't let the electronic voice sounds fool you into thinking they're bad. Their vocals are amazing, and I've heard them.


  1. I like that the youngest guy almost rivals Wrinkly.

  2. well...all I have to say is that the first picture looks like a mass-orgasm moment,

    I'm just saying...
