A backstage video featuring JYP’s longest serving trainee of seven years and presently a member of 2AM, Jo Kwon when his group 2AM debuted on Music Bank a week ago has made headlines after it’s release yesterday.
On the afternoon of 17th July, fans of 2AM posted this backstage video on the fansite which then appeared on various video sharing websites as we saw what went behind the scenes when 2AM debuted a week earlier.
Not just that, from the video, we can also see Kim Hee Hwan and the Wonder Girls appearing in person to lend and show their support to 2AM. To console Jo Kwon who was seemingly overwhelmed with emotions after completing his debut stage, So Hee leaned forward and gave him a sincere hug.
After that was made known to the public, “Jo Kwon, So Hee” immediately became the No.1 search terms on Daum. On the other hand, the video which first surfaced on 2AM fansite saw an incredible jump in the number of people visiting, showing the high curiosity that netizens have over this.
Netizens commented, “Hope that 2AM can continue showing this kind of emotions from their debut stage in future”, “Hope that they will retain this purity and become great singers”, etc as support for them poured in.
According to someone from JYPE and Cube, “Everyone has been showing their support for 2AM who has been running towards their dreams. To repay everyone for their love, 2AM will work even harder in future.”
