On the 21st, “Beastly Idols2PM held their first high five event at Pacifico Yokohama in Kanagawa in commemoration of their debut single “Take off” where more than 40,000 fans were in attendance! The line in front of the venue stretched for 2 kilometers (~1.24 miles). Taecyeon happily commented, “I’m really surprised at all the fans that came to see us”. The group high-fived each fan from beginning to end without showing signs of fatigue.

The First Press Limited Edition Type A and B as well as the regular edition of “Take off” each contained one random “High Five Event! Special Photocard” (7 in all). Those who had one of the solo cards (6 possible cards) got to high give the member featured on that card.

Taecyeon expressed his desires for their Japanese debut single “Take off”, released on May 18th, “It really means a lot to us to be able to debut in Japan. Definitely support our single “Take off”.”

Chansung enthusiastically commented about their catchphrase “Beastly Idols”, “This is a great honor. Rather than just the Beastly Idol image, we believe we can show a variety of images to everyone in the future”.

A few days ago, the group held their first nationwide tour “2PM 1st JAPAN TOUR 2011 “Take off””. Due to the overwhelming response from fans, the group added an additional performance at the Makuhari Messe Event Hall in Chiba. Junho happily said, “I felt really moved that we were able to add another performance thanks to all of our fans”. Chansung then chimed in calmly, “I’m really happy that the Japanese food I ate during this tour was really delicious”.

Moreover, the group was asked which Japanese word/phrase they’ve remembered lately. Taecyeon said, “killing two birds with one stone”, Nickhun said, “I’m happy thanks to all of you”, Wooyoung said, “Stylish”, Junho said, “Fluffy”, Junsu said, “Chuutoro (medium-fatty tuna). Not ootoro (quality tuna), but chuutoro.” and Chansung finished up with, “comfortably”. Each of their responses caused the venue to really liven up.

In addition, the group will be making an appearance at “JYP NATION in Japan 2011” at Saitama Super Arena on August 17th and 18th.
