2PM begins performing as a 6 member group

Sadly, it turns out 7-1 does in fact equal 6.

JYP announced that after leader Park Jaebeom's split from 2PM that the group would be continuing with 6 members and is holding true to his promise thus far.

According to their schedule, 2PM's first concert as a 6-member group, dubbed 1:59 PM by some fans, will be at at the 2009 Supermodel Contest, held in Gyeongnam.

Other performers at the event include G-dragon, 2NE1, SNSD / Girls' Generation, Baek Ji Young, Hyunbin, and Wink.

The 2PM boys were scheduled to perform at this event before the Jaebeom situation arose, and there hasn't been an official cancellation from JYPE or anyone else.

If not this event, it is possible that the group will perform at the Dream Concert on October 10th. In response to whether 2PM would still perform at the Dream Concert, it was said that, "Our wanting of 2PM on stage hasn't changed."

Either way, if 2PM shows up at these events or not, the Hottests' call for a holdout on all 2PM activities will be enforced, and netizens have already expressed outrage at the news.

After it was announced that 2PM would continue with 6 members, comments such as "I can't believe it," "Without Jaebeom, attending 2PM activities is impossible," and "JYP's attitude towards the situation is pissing me off," sprung up.

Stay tuned for full coverage of 1:59 PM activities.
