2PM to release single and DVD on same day in Japan
For boy band 2PM, June 6 will be a big day, as the group will release its new single “Beautiful” as well as its first live DVD in Japan.
“Beautiful” is the K-pop band’s fourth EP in Japan and as soon as it is released, the band will kick-off events to promote the album.
The title track is already a popular hit in Japan as it was picked to be played in a television commercial for a Japanese company earlier this year. Back in April, the track was also made available on Japan’s leading ringtone Web site Recochoku and was the most-downloaded tune for a while.
On June 9 and 16, the group will hold a “Hi-Touch” event where fans can come and say hi and shake hands with band members in Osaka and Tokyo.
Then on the 23rd, the band will attend MTV Japan’s 2012 Music Video Awards, where it will rub shoulders with the hottest J-pop artists and also perform.
2PM has been nominated for Best Music Video with its clip “I’m your Man.”
Meanwhile, in the month of May, the band is set to heat things up at Tokyo’s Budokan from May 24 to 25 and then again from May 28 to 31.
