DBSK & 2PM May Not Perform At Dream Concert 2009

Up to 15 artists includingDBSK, 2PM, Big Bang, SNSD, MC Mong, Jewelry, Super, Junior, SHINee and 2NE1 were said to be performing at this year's Dream Concert in Korea. But after recent events, DBSK and 2PM have said that they are unsure whether or not they will be performing.

As you all may already know, DBSK's Micky YooChun, Xiah Junsu, and Youngwoong Jaejoong are having some problems with their record label, SM Entertainment, regarding their salaries. A representative for DBSK has said, "We know that the expectations for Dream Concert 2009 were huge for the DBSK fans. However, resolving this case with SM amicably is our first priority, for the sake of the future expansion of the Korean music industry." and "We all hope that the boys will quickly reclaim their titles as the kings of K-Pop."

2PM, as you all know, is not faring well at the moment neither, with the resignation of their ex-leader Jaebeom. Jaebeom has already left for Seattle and was reported saying that he'd return after he studies music in the States. And with the need of a new leader for 2PM, JYPE has stated that all of 2PM's future activities have been canceled as of now and that nothing is certain for the boys as of yet.

Dream Concert will still take place as planned, although the lineup for this year is a bit unclear. Dream Concert 2009 will take place at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on October 10th from 6:00PM. Last year's Dream Concert was a mega success but that seems like a Distant Dream...

I'm not sure whether I want to see 2PM perform at Dream Concert though, without Jaebeom. What do you guys think?
