34 Comments

Two popular K-pop boy groups 2PM and 2AM have merged into a single group called "Oneday. The story of the merger is told in the documentary "Beyond the Oneday: Story of 2PM & 2AM," which was directed by Japan's Shoichi Omichi.

The two groups and Omichi attended the Japan premiere of the documentary in Tokyo on Thursday night.

The South Korean stars -- Seulong and Jinwoon of 2AM, Chansung, Junsu, Junho, NichKhun and Wooyoung of 2PM -- produced an original soundtrack for the film which focuses on their individual stories and includes back-stage footage from their Japan tour last year.

Oh no, this supergroup is going to take the title for most annoying K-pop band name away from 2NE1, Kiss My Ft, or some other wannabe backup dancers.

JT, don't ever stop with the silly fluff stories, even if completely made up. They really help balance all the other crap going on in the world.

Not only fans of boy bands are interested in boy band news. Sociologists, psychologists, literary critics and other academics researching pop culture phenomenon and their impact on society will have a definite interest in keeping up to the rise and fall (and merges) of pop culture groups.

Also, just because you don't care doesn't make this a non-news.

Well I guess the time was right?

Perhaps "15 minutes..." would have been a more appropriate name.

5 ( +5 / -0 )

wow, clever name. I prefer wontond's suggestion.

I just love 2PM. They were great in Dream High. This great move should lead to a next season for Dream High.

I really wanted too win that touch Korea tour to meet them, isn't 2pm supposed to be with miss A touring korea with the winners or they took break. o.o

2pm sounds more healthier than 2am...

This may be the dumbest thing I've ever read.

Someone needs to tell them that the Beatles look went out 40 years ago.

2 ( +3 / -1 )

This is a joke, right?

2 ( +2 / -0 )

Should they cancel each other out, like matter and anti-matter?

Tsk tsk... it seems like Shoichi Omichi is paying a lot of bills now huh... damn this economic crisis!

As a former fan of 2PM (I don't hate them now or anything, I've just um, progressed in my musical tastes)... weren't they always called OneDay? They were created alongside 2AM and known collectively as OneDay since their mutual inception.

LOL

Ekkusaito beat me to it. 7PM is the natural succession for the band's name.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

They can do what they like with the name. Im amazed there's a documentary in it. It'll be riveting I'm sure.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

And one day they will realise how silly their whole name/gig/movie/look/music/story thing is was or whatever.

People actually spend money on this rubbish? No wonder the world is going down the crapper.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

I think the name 7-11 would be more appropriate for the merged group.

0 ( +1 / -1 )

Pretty sad gimmick.

0 ( +1 / -1 )

I thought AM/PM would have sounded good :_ Or has that name already been taken?

-1 ( +4 / -5 )

So they are going to be 8am???

-1 ( +0 / -1 )

One day we'll be Oneday but how to get BEYOND the Oneday. Merge into 2PAM! The story of 2 idol groups who desperately need a new hair stylist. This is their story. Narrated by Jay Park.
