On September 8 band member and vocalist Park Jaebeom left 2PM. Jaebeom left the band after controversial comments written on his MySpace page in 2005 were recently brought to light.

During the last month, fans have expressed their love for the former band member. Twitter has been flooded with posts encouraging Jaebeom to return to the band. The October 27 term "#jaebumsAbs" is yet another attempt by Twitter users to encourage the pop singer to go back to the band.
