►►Jaebum’s ‘Hype Nation’ news: no girl wants to be his partner + MV to be filmed in Korea

Former idol group 2PM’s leader Jaebum has confirmed his return with a Hollywood film. However, finding a female cast for the movie, who will be playing the role of Jaebum’s younger sister, is being met with much difficulty.

The producers of the movie previously stated that they were considering a Korean girl group member to play Jaebum’s partner and younger sister. They had a few candidates up on line but it has been recently revealed that the potential female casts were not too fond of the idea once they weighed the pros and the cons.

First of all, Jaebum left Korea last September amidst the ‘Myspace Comments’ controversy. He was then terminated by JYP Entertainment, earning the title of ‘severe private life.’

An associate of one of the potential female casts revealed that there was too much pressure and risk involved to be starring in a movie alongside Jaebum when he has not even clarified his mistake yet.

The movie also has history of casting Son Dambi, which she later pulled out of. Singer BoA even rejected their offer. Because of such reasons, the role is not a welcoming role amongst the female singers of Korea.

They might be able to cast a rookie that is able to dance well but the producers are set on finding a partner for Jaebum amongst a highly popular female group.

A celebrity associate stated, “The notion that it is ‘Jaebum’s movie’ is quite strong and so it’s important that Jaebum solves his problems (mistake) beforehand. It’s highly likely that anyone that stars in the same movie as Jaebum might be pushed into an unfavorable position by the press since any hasty decisions will tie their fate together.”

2PM’s former leader Jaebeom (23) will be showing off his talent as a singer through his role in the movie ‘Hype Nation.’

‘Hype Nation’ producer Jason Lee me with Star News on the 29th and said, “Jaebeom will definitely be appearing on the OST of ‘Hype Nation.’ He has finished recording 4 tracks,” he revealed.

Jason Lee continued, “Among the songs he has recorded for the OST, Jaebeom is scheduled to film a music video for 1 of the songs after he returns to Korea at the beginning of June,” and “That music video will show his b-boy team AOM and about 40 breakdancers will be participating,” he revealed.

He continued, “There are people who are worried about Jaebeom’s acting abilities, but it is a dance movie and Jaebeom is currently working hard at receiving acting training in America; he will show a performance that is greater than the anticipation he is receiving,” he revealed.

Jaebeom will return to Korea for the first time in 8 months to film ‘Hype Nation’ in teh beginning of June. The staff of ‘Hype Nation’ also worked on the Hollywood hit dance movie ‘Step Up,’ and famous American hip hop group B2K will also appear in the movie.

Jaebeom has attracted attention for sharing more than half of his salary from ‘Hype Nation’ with his AOM crew. Jason Lee said, “Jaebeom gave half of his own salary to his [AOM crew] who received less than he.”

    he has f-king clarified his mistakes many times alrdy. wtf, everybody make mistakes what.. he alrdy apologized for his wrongdoings what, millions of time.. anyway, those events have ardy passed am i right. so forgive and forget la. he make mistakes because he is a normal human being like me an you. don’t expect too much from idols. not saying that in a bad way, what i am trying to say is dont like think that idols wont make mistake, they have to be role models. i mean.. they’re human being, they should have commited a mistake.. big or small mistake.

    How tragic. I normally do not write a comment, but his story made me realized about Korea culture and their small and narrow minds. If someone say or write unfavorable remarks, it may be hurtful, but to hold a grudge against a person forever is too much. No wonder the kind of mind torture and pressure cause fears in their stars/idols to commit suicide as a way of a solution. Did Korea not learn from a recent death of an actor/singer PYH? Seriously Korea needs to stop giving out negative message to their younger people that for u to received success, u need to be GOD, or else u are TRASH and u have to DIE.

    jeez…why do ppl still have grudges after years have passed already!! i mean why they gotta only think of themselves do they even think of how jay might be feeling?!?!?!? like really not only did he aplogize more than his fair share why is it tht hes the only one apoligizing? i mean shouldnt the netizens and other ppl who said cruel things to or about jay be apoligizing too?!?!?! it’s just wrong to blame jay for everything after all these years!! i mean yea he said those things about korea and koreans but shouldnt it be over with? i bet jay felt bad after saying those things and it probably hurt him alot to leave 2pm in a situation like tht but why do some of you ppl have to throw it right back at his face after all these years i mean do you ppl have any sense (no offense) but A LOT of ppl still love and support him why cant the rest of you who is always saying cruel things to him??!?!??
