Now Junho has embarked his second solo tour, do Wooyoung's fans, especially K janggpas feel any bad feelings towards Junho? Wooyoung barely have solo activities in 2013 and now 2014 except a little here and there, but I've never give up waiting for his solo comeback. Both are my biases. It bothers me a little. There are a lot of things I want to ask you since you are one of the most reliable people in the fandom but its hard to word my feeling.

I don’t think there are any bad feelings about this because Korea and Japan are two different spheres, and Korean fans see this in a different perspective. Wooyoung doesn’t release a new solo album not because Junho has solo activities. These are two different things. There are other conflicting schedules.

Sure, there are Wooyoung fans who might be indifferent to Junho and vice versa, but they usually keep that to themselves because first and foremost they are 2PM fans. That’s my personal take on this.

OMG! I was goggling something about Junho & came across your post that you went to God of Victory recording! Mamamia!! Was your heart pounding hard when it was 2PM's turn to play the game? My heart was beating fast when I watched the show, so I can't imagine how fans were like when they were there. And at what point did you have to leave the site? XD

:D I was lucky enough to see Wooyoung extinguish the candles from very close. It’s actually not as nerve-racking as on TV, because there are no captions, no close-ups or any other editing tricks. However, 2PM lost the next game so I had to go to the other side of the arena.

I think, I left at around 9 pm, because I had a Korean final exam the next day. As far as I remember, the filming ended at 1 am or something. I left when they were doing the long jump from the crossbar.

U've came to 2PM concert many time, right? So how do u think about Wooyoung and Junho's dance? Who is better? And who is the one that have most fans in 2PM?

I hope you don’t mind but I will choose not to answer the question about popularity, because I no longer find it comfortable talking about it. Popularity changes every year, and it’s hard to keep tabs on it. You can backtrack on popularity tag on my tumblr:

As for the dancing, it’s really hard to tell, because both of them are professionals and the best dancers in 2PM hands down. I don’t know enough about dancing to make an objective judgement. They have different dancing styles, and I personally prefer Wooyoung’s better because I love the way he moves on stage.

But it’s just a PERSONAL PREFERENCE, and it doesn’t mean that Wooyoung is better or Junho is worse. It’s like comparing apples and oranges.

CLOSE UP
JUNHO (From 2PM)

A direct hit on the increasingly appealing Junho-san!
What his ideal “grown man” is, what he will be like in 10 years,
the now, and the change that has awoken inside himself….
He spoke to us openly and frankly about these things.

I just read your last answer to the anon question regarding 2pm's popularity, I've already got the idea that they are not very popular in Korea and have many antis, but how come they are so busy modeling and landing many magazines covers and CF's?

Simple. They sell. They might not be the “in” thing at the moment, but they have this long-standing image that can still sell. Most of the big brands that hire them for modelling have really big turnouts abroad. 2PM is really popular in Japan, China and Southeast Asia, and shopping is one of the main reasons why many Asian tourists come to Seoul. How to attract rich tourists? Hire models that they like. Thus, 2PM and some other well-established artists that may not be as active as before are still landing good CF deals. I mean, last year when I was in Korea, here’s what greeted me at the airport:

2PM’s image is not bad. Ask any random Korean, and he/she will agree that they’re pretty cool. It’s just that they don’t have that overwhelming presence like they did in AAA or Heartbeat days. To my mind, they have accomplished things that an idol band can accomplish and there’s no need for them to try and prove anything. I mean, they basically keep the JYPEnt ship afloat. They are the main breadwinners for the company, even if they don’t get much limelight in Korea.

Everytime there's 2pm news in NB, they always get this negative comments. I really pity them. No matter what they do, negativity is always around. It is so sad. Are the K-netz really hate them? How are they in Korea right now? Popularity wise

Ever since the scandal 2PM has been somewhat of an underdog. There are people who like them, but there have always been and will always be lots of antis, because when a former fan turns into an anti, it’s your worst nightmare. We’re lucky we don’t have to deal with sasaeng fans really.

I think general public knows 2PM, but it’s been more than a year since they’ve been active, so unless you take general interest in them, they are basically non existent to you. It’s easier to measure your popularity when you’re active. But when you’re not, there’s not much to measure.

ALL ABOUT Junho from 2PM

Junho of 2PM, Asia’s No.1 Beast Idols, is set to release his second solo mini album as a continuation from last summer. Masculine acrobatic performances, a cute smiling face, and the distress he sometimes shows… Out of all the various faces he shows, one after another the fans are confused wondering “Which is the real Junho!?” Junho who has plunged into his 2nd stage of solo promotions, was dissected body and mind here at ViVi☆
