2AM

 2 AM;

2AM is a South Korean four-member ballad boy band under JYP Entertainment. The members are Jinwoon, Jo Kwon, Seulong, and Changmin. 2AM is one of the two subgroups branched out from the eleven-member (before Jaebeom’s departure) boy band One Day, the other being 2PM. They officially debuted on July 11, 2008 on KBS’s Music Bank, performing their debut song “This Song”. 2AM’s first single, “This Song”, was released on July 21, 2008. They made their debut performance on July 11, 2008, performing their debut song “이 노래 (This Song)”. They won their first Mutizen at Inkigayo on February 7, 2010 with “Can’t Let You Go Even If I Die”. On October 26, 2010, 2AM released their first full-length album entitled Saint o’Clock, with “전활 받지 않는 너에게 (You Wouldn’t Answer My Calls)” and “미친 듯이 (Like Crazy)” as the promoted tracks.

Along with the members of 2PM, 2AM appeared on the documentary Hot Blood that was aired on Mnet, documented their rigorous training program of their pre-debut days. Changmin was the only member of One Day to not appear in the documentary because he was serving in the military at that time. Initially, Jinwoon was eliminated on Hot Blood, but he ended up in 2AM due to Daehun’s withdrawal from JYPE. Jo Kwon trained for 2567 days, 10 days past 7 years after joining JYPE.

2AM endorsed up to $1 million for products commercials in early 2010, including Pepsi and BHC Chicken. It was also announced that 2AM would be the new faces of Samsung’s Dugeunduguen Tomorrow campaign with Kara, succeeding 4Tomorrow in 2009. In April 2010, they participated in the original soundtrack of drama series Personal Taste with a ballad titled “바보처럼 (Like A Fool)”, which also became a number one hit. 2AM was chosen to represent Asia on Listen Up! The Official 2010 Fifa World Cup Album with the song titled “No. 1”. The song was digitally released on May 18, 2010.
