14 Jun

Cube Entertainment representatives revealed today that six member group BEAST will be concluding their “Fiction” promotions this week. BEAST released their first full length album, “Fiction And Fact,” on May 17th. They have had a very successful promotional period. They won triple crowns on M! Countdown and Music Bank. They won a double crown on Inkigayo, and look to finish off their triple crown sweep with a win on this week’s episode of Inkigayo.

Representatives revealed that BEAST will not be promoting a follow up song due to their activities in Japan this month. The representatives commented, “It was the original plan to not have BEAST complete any follow up promotions for their first full length album. The promotions of “Fiction” were only for one month.”

They continued with, “The members of BEAST are very thankful for the fans that gave them so much support.”

BEAST will be releasing the Japanese version of “Bad Girl”[/url on the 15th of June. The music video for “Bad Girl” in Japanese has already been released. BEAST will be flying to Japan to begin their promotions there on the 20th of June.

Earlier this year, BEAST released the Japanese version of their hit song, “Shock,” and it took over the Oricon Weekly Singles Chart. However, due to the earthquake aftermath, BEAST did not promote “Shock” in Japan. This time, BEAST will actively promote “Bad Girl” in Japan this month.

BEAST concluded with, “In order to show our fans in Korea our thankfulness and return the love, we will work hard promoting in Japan.”

Are you sad BEAST is ending their promotions of “Fiction” so early? Which follow up song were you hoping they would promote from “Fiction And Fact”?

2PM Ended The Japan Concert Tour On Last Friday

15 May

K-pop idols 2PM will wrap up their first concert tour in Japan on last friday, according to their agency JYP Entertainment.

“2PM will hold their final show at the Zepp Tokyo in Japan today,” a PR official from JYP told 10Asia over the phone on Friday.

The six-member boy band flew into Japan on May 4 and has visited several cities in the country including Sapporo on May 6, Fukuoka on May 8, Osaka on May 9 and Nagoya on May 10 for their tour titled “2PM 1st JAPAN TOUR 2011 ‘Take off.'”

“We were originally scheduled to hold five shows in the country but held an extra performance in Tokyo yesterday at the Makuhari Messe event hall since tickets for the show tonight became sold out,” the official explained.

During the tour, the group sang a slew of their hit songs such as “Don’t Stop Can’t Stop,” “Without U,” “Heartbeat” and promoted their upcoming Japanese debut single “Take Off” which is set to go on sale in the country on May 18.

Composed of members Nichkhun, Wooyoung, Junho, Chansung, Junsu and Taecyeon, 2PM has been one of the most popular boy bands in Korea since their debut in 2008, holding numerous hits under their belt including “10 out of 10,” “Again & Again,” “Only You” and “Without You.”

The boys branched out to the music market in Japan with the release of their DVD “Hottest ∼ 2PM 1st MUSIC VIDEO COLLECTION & The History ∼” in Japan last November followed by a large showcase event a month after in Tokyo’s Ryokoku Kokugikan which attracted over 25,000 local fans.

They also made an appearance on Japan’s Mezamashi TV in February, performed at the fashion show for Tokyo Girls Collection (TGC) in March and recently topped Japan’s USEN weekly music chart and lyrics search website uta-net.com’s with “Take Off.”
