2PM would get its start as a subset of a larger Korean pop group titled One Day. The band would train vigorously, honing their performance and musical skills while on reality television series SuperStar Survival. Through trials and tribulations, a motley crew of over a dozen aspiring performers would be whittled down to just eleven, forming the super group One Day. One Day would be a short lived phenomenon, eventually splitting into two smaller groups: 2AM and 2PM. Since then, 2PM has experienced runaway success with its all star lineup made up of six Korean heartthrobs: Jun. K, Nichkhun, Taecyeon, Wooyoung, Junho, and Chansung.
The band's official debut would drop in 2008, with the band establishing themselves as macho performance and singing sensations, a unique combination on the Korean pop scene at the time. They would release various mini albums, building up a loyal and dedicated fanbase that stretched all across Seoul and into other countries, riding the Kpop wave as it spread out all across the globe. Despite tough competition at home, 2PM would consistently top charts and competitions amongst other Kpop groups, making them one of the most premier idol groups in South Korea by 2009.
After the release of their debut full length, 2PM fever would be at an all time high, with them receiving accolades from the M.net Asian Music Awards as well as the Korean Broadcasting System. They would release their follow up album and embark on a global tour alongside female idol group Wonder Girls, traveling throughout Korea, the United States, and beyond, consistently selling out amphitheatres across the world. By 2010 2PM fever was showing no signs of abating, with the band being recognized as the most popular asian singers in Asia at China's Mandarin Music Honors awards, marking the first time the organization bestowed the title upon a Korean group. The band would cement their influence abroad with their kick off tour in Japan, which would be coupled with a Japanese album release that would be the first time a Korean band would hit the number one spot on the USEN J-Pop Chart.
The band would keep up a consistent release schedule, with a new album in 2013 and 2014 that would build on and expand their already fervent fanbase. In between tours and recording, the band is constantly in the media spotlight, hosting various television shows and testing out their acting chops in various Korean reality and drama series. Band member Junho has also made a name for himself in the high profile Korean feature film Cold Eyes, making the 2PM name synonymous not just with music but with Korean culture and media in general. Six years on 2PM is showing no signs of slowing down as they continue to release mainstream hit after mainstream hit along with a nonstop tour schedule that constantly brings their addictive sound to all corners of the world.
The band's debut mega hit would be 2009's 1:59PM, the album that set off one of the most well known Kpop phenomenons to date. The album was a hard hitting commercial success, climbing to the #1 position on Korea's weekly album chart, the #1 position on the yearly chart as well as a #16 showing in Japan's Oricon album chart. The album spawned three classic Kpop hits, including "Hottest Time of the Day", "2:00PM Time for Change", and "Heartbeat".
The band initially featured the artist Jaebeom, largely seen as the most talented member of 2PM. However, disparaging comments about Korea were found on Jaebeom's MySpace account, which eventually led to his leaving the band. Despite leaving, his band mates split their debut's earnings with him and view him in a positive light.
