When 2PM announced their comeback and subsequently dropped ‘Gentleman’s Game’, I was in 2PM heaven. Apparently, the group wasn’t stopping there because they just announced their new variety show! If there’s one group that dominated variety shows, it’s 2PM. From ‘Wild Bunny’, to the ‘2pm Show’, if you’ve watched these then you’ll know that when it comes to variety sense, our beastly idols can’t be beaten.
This time, the group is off to Australia, making it a travel variety show, and will be titled ‘Wild Beat’. The production crew for the show released a statement on their resolve to proved fans with a high quality show.
“There are many people waiting for 2PM’s variety show, so we want to deliver it to viewers as fast as possible, but to make sure the production is completed to perfection, we will put our efforts into editing.”
The show it set to air in January 2017, through K Star. Meanwhile, 2pm will be going on tour in Japan and will perform on October 26th and 27th at the Tokyo Dome. The concert titled ‘The 2PM in Tokyo Dome’ will be promoted through a new cafe, set up specifically for the event. JYP revealed plans for the cafe that will be called ‘ZooPM Cafe‘.
It seems that ‘ZooPM Cafe’ will have have characters that represent each member’s distinct characteristics and will have a menu consisting of pancakes, burgers, curry, parfaits, and eclairs. JYP released the following as the character names for each member:
Junho: “Emperor Paeng Paeng”
The cafe will have two locations: Tokyo and Osaka. The Tokyo cafe will be open from September 30th to October 27th and the Osaka cafe will be open from October 18th to November 4th.
2PM will be enlisting for the military next year, so it will be quite a while before we get to see them again. But for now, we can all enjoy their upcoming concerts and of course, their variety show. If you haven’t seen it yet, watch ‘Promise’ below:
