2PM to Hold Six Concerts at Budokan
A lot of Korean singers have set many new records in many countries, but 2PM’s record in Japan is going to be hard to beat, as it’s going to be an unusual one.
2PM will be holding six concerts in just one week at Japan’s Budokan.
The concerts, with a concept titled Budokan 6 Days, will be held from May 24-25 and from May 28-31. They will thus take place over the course of a full week, and the 2PM members will be the first Korean singers to hold a series of six concerts at Budokan.
A rep from the group’s agency JYP Entertainment said, “2PM was received favorably as the ‘Best Rookie of 2011’ in Japan in 2011, and thus came to hold the six concerts in Budokan. On March 17, the film Ouran High School Host Club, which features Nichkhun as a cameo, will premiere.”
Before the concerts and the film premiere, 2PM will be releasing a Korean best album in Japan on March 14.
The best album will contain the group′s major Korean hits, as well as some lesser known tracks that the group felt were too good to leave out.
The album will be released in three versions: one original, one with a DVD of the JYP Nation in Japan concert held on August 2011 and one containing Alive written by member Junsu (Jun.K) and Move On, written by member Junho.
2PM sweeped through the Oricon charts, coming in second among the rookies for the 2011 Oricon Artist Total Sales Chart, and first among Korean artists.
At the 26th Japan Golden Disk Awards, the group won the New Artist of the Year award. Taecyeon, Chansung and Nichkhun have also scored huge individual successes, with local dramas and films.
