JYP’s new boy band 2AM’s member, Jo Kwon confessed that he wanted to show his thankfulness towards Wonder Girls Sun Ye who had been with him through thick and thin for 6 years with 2AM’s title song, “This Song.”
Jo Kwon had trained for 7 years now and 6 of those years, he had spent it with Wonder Girls Sun Ye.
The two were recruited into JYP through 2001 Young Talent Program ‘99% Challenge,’ and starting from the moment they became trainees up to Sun Ye’s debut with Wonder Girls, they had spent a long six years together, dripping sweat for the same dream.
They are two friendly competitors and are friends that know each other better than anyone else but after Sun Ye had debuted last year as Wonder Girls’ leader and marked her spot in the Korean music industry as Korea’s top female group, Jo Kwon’s feeling of lonliness would be totally normal. But Jo Kwon did not drop but pulled himself through the end and finally, he was able to become 2AM’s member and have debut right in front of him.
2AM’s title song, “This Song,” is produced and written by Park Jin Young.
The modern and simple beat and mournful lyrics are the main points and the voices that seem to spit out at every word but still strong and soulful is very charming. Also, you could feel and listen to the members’ strong and talented voices, while feeling the long trainee years that they had went through.
2AM’s Jo Kwon replied, “I put all my effort and strenght during the 2567 days into the title song, “This Song.” During our trainee years, she was my one comeptitor and after her debut, she became the tree that I could lean on. I would like to show my thankfulness and my heart through “This Song.”
On the other hand, 2AM is planning on having their first debut stage on the 11th on KBS Music Bank.
