Taecyeon discusses making a comeback with 2PM despite being managed by a different agency

AKP STAFF

On June 28, the members of 2PM attended a press conference in light of the release of their 7th full album, 'MUST'!

On this day, the 2PM members expressed how delighted they were to keep their promise with their fans, by making their first comeback as a group after completing their mandatory military service duties. 

When asked about the secret to being together for nearly 14-years, the group answered, "There is strength in our relationship. You must keep in touch often, you must get together for drinks every once in a while, and you need to keep talking about the future. If there is trouble, or if you notice something negative about another, you need to talk it out. Even those of us who were more closed off eventually opened up, and that's how we were able to continue as a group. We are able to treat one another like family, because even during times of trouble, we do not take sides, we listen to what everyone has to say."

Next, member Taecyeon discussed his departure from JYP Entertainment, and how he was able to make a comeback with 2PM despite being managed by a different agency. He shared, "It's true that there are not many cases where an idol can make a comeback with the group after leaving the group's agency. It's very important to have open discussions, and also to build trust between you and the company. I may be at a different agency, but there is still respectfulness. Even if I am not at JYP anymore, I don't feel that I am not a part of 2PM anymore. I am able to continue my position in the group due to the members' respectfulness."

Meanwhile, 2PM will be kicking off promotions with their sexy title track "Make It" later this week.

didnt realize he had left and the fact he ACTUALLY kept his promise is a miracle by K-pop standards when so many groups constantly say the same thing

When I first heard that Taec left; my heart broke, I thought that was the end of 2PM, other groups have said the same in the past and have failed to make a comeback as a previous unit. We are thankful to JYP and to 51K for making the arrangements, and obviously to the members for building and keeping a strong foundation and trust within themselves and the management teams. As a Hottest for 11 years; I cried seeing them back together again. It feels familiar.
