2PM to release new album next week
The album, GENTLEMAN’S GAME, was announced through their official website on Sunday, which marked the eighth anniversary of the group’s debut. The site contained questions created by the members. When answered correctly, fans are rewarded with handwritten letters and selfies of each member.
Following the announcement, members Woo Young and Junho released their individual teaser images for the new album on Monday, showcasing their luxurious transformations befitting the album’s concept.
Since their debut in 2008, 2PM has remained one of the core groups in the K-pop scene, spawning hits such as “10 Out of 10,” “Again and Again,” “I Hate You,” “Hands Up,” and “My House.”
The group sold 49,000 copies of their Japanese album, “Galaxy of 2PM,” on its April 27 release date, grabbing first place on the Oricon daily chart.
2PM is scheduled to hold a concert at the Tokyo Dome in October.
