While heads have been spinning about 2AM’s impending future as one of the best ballad groups in Korean, many have wondered about their groups counter-part and label mate, 2PM. The results are in and JYP Entertainment has assured fans that 2PM are not going anywhere until January of 2018.
JYP Entertainment released an official statement to Newsen stating, “All 2PM members have completed the re-signing process. The duration of the new contract is from January 2015 to January of 2018.“ The representative from their agency also stated, “We have discussed renewing the contract since the autumn of 2014 with the 2PM members. The members all expressed their wishes to re-sign, so they all renewed their contracts together.”
2PM will continue their activities with JYP until January of 2018, then after that the future of 2PM is up for grabs. It’s actually really nerve-racking because a lot of well-established groups are parting ways like Kara, MBLAQ, EXO, SNSD. It shows that no group is safe and, no matter how deep of a relationship fans feel with them. the sad truth is that members are somewhat disposable. When you watch these groups on older variety shows after a member has left, you feel torn because you don’t know whether to feel hurt or angry, or even if you have the right to feel that way. It’s a confusing time and after 2014, K-pop has not been the same for most fans.
