We reported earlier that 2PM is gearing up for a return on stage without Jaebeom at the 2009 Supermodel Contest on 25th September. But it will only be just two members of 2PM taking to the stage.
With the uncertainty surrounding 2PM in the aftermath of Jaebeom’s departure, the event organizers have once again stated on the 23rd that 2PM is still among the list of scheduled performers, with no planned changes. But it will not be a 2PM stage with the present six members. Instead, it will be a performance by just two 2PM members singing a ballad, one of which is confirmed to be Nichkhun while the other is still being discussed.
Since their last performance at the Incheon Korean Wave Music Festival on 5th September, the 2PM boys have not been seen on stage together since, as they were withdrawn from all activities. This performance at the 2009 Supermodel Contest will be 2PM’s first performance on stage since their last 25 days ago.
The 2009 Supermodel Contest will be broadcasted live through SBS and their website but organizers have stated that, with tensions still running high now, the possibility of 2PM’s performance not being shown in the live broadcast is high. 2PM’s performance had been scheduled way before the Jaebeom incident erupted into a fireball.
Besides 2PM, there will also be performances by SNSD, G-Dragon, 2NE1, Baek Ji Young, Park Hyun Bin and Wink.
