2AM

Summary: 2AM debuted on July 11, 2008 with their song “This Song.”  The group consists of four members, Lee ChangMin, Im SeulOng, Jo Kwon, and Jung JinWoon.  Jo Kwon became popular for having spent about eight years in training.  They originally going to be a part of an eleven member boy band called One Day, but the groups were split into 2AM, who performs ballads, and 2PM, who performs dance tracks.  The entire One Day group made their television debut through the reality show “Hot Blooded Men.” Find 2AM’s discography here.

 

When 2AM and PM first debuted, I personally wasn’t interested in either of them.  That’s because I was crazy.  At the time, I was not really into the muscular men, and preferred the flower boys to the beast-dols.  Plus, even after I learned 2PM, I still wasn’t crazy about ballads.  Sure, I had 2AM’s music, but I rarely listened to it.  The song that really got me to like them was probably “I Did Wrong.”  I really, really liked JinWoon (note he’s the “prettiest” one in the group).  Since that time in late 2009, I’ve grown to appreciate the deliciousness of beast idols, and even ChangMin, who both Velexa and I considered fugliness stuck on a nice body, has grown on us.  We can even consider him attractive when he has his shirt on now.  For people not used to ballads, 2AM may take a bit of time to grow on you, but they’re really talented and good-looking.  More upbeat songs of theirs I especially like are, as I mentioned before, “I Did Wrong;” a song featuring 2PM’s ChanSung, “To Her;” as well as “No. 1” and “With or Without U.”
