2PM’s Jakartan Prince, Junho
On its October 6 episode, Mnet Wide Entertainment News exclusively covered what happened behind the scenes with TVXQ, Girls’ Generation, Shinee, 2PM, miss A, B2ST and 4Minute at the Gyeongju Hallyu Dream Concert.
On the broadcast, viewers learned just who is the prince of each country. Because you know, you ain′t a hallyu star till you′ve been deemed royalty.
When asked which member is the most popular overseas, the members of 2PM started off by saying that each member is popular in different parts of the world.
Nichkhun and Wooyoung are both almost equally popular in Thailand (although Nichkhun seemed to pull slightly ahead, as Thailand is of course his home country and he′s the original prince), Junsu takes over in China and Chansung reigns in Japan...but what about Junho, the oft-ignored member?
Yep. The Prince of Jakarta. Just in case you don′t know, Jakarta is the capital and largest city in Indonesia and is the 10th largest city in the world. Not bad Junho, not bad.
Although, some may argue that Lee Joon Gi′s already snagged that title...
The members of 2PM also showed their envy toward MC for the day Taecyeon and his drama role with top actress Kim Tae Hee in Japan. And how do boys show they′re jealous? the group cheered only for Kim Tae Hee and her success in the drama, completely ignoring Taecyeon. Guess all that luck with leading ladies has to bite you in the butt sometime.
2PM wrapped up the interview by showing its determination as Korea’s PR ambassador for Korea tourism. The group was appointed ambassador along with miss A, also from JYP, and the members stated that they would work hard to promote Korean tourism to the world.
