What Journalists in Korea Thought About The Conference on February 27th

4 Mar

Okay, I know I already said that I wished no more news about 2PM fiasco. But I just found this post in 2ONEDAY and I couldnt ignore my hypergraphia self to write. So here are some cuts from several writings from various journalists in Korea, stating their point of view about the conference between Hottests and 2PM-JYPE on Feb 27th..

대중문화평론가 “기획사의 역할은 스케줄을 잡는 게 아니다. 소속 연예인의 사생활부터 이미지까지 메이킹해야 한다”면서 “JYPE가 팬들의 지탄을 받는 것은 간담회에서 조차 모든 책임을 재범에게 떠밀고 있기 때문이다. 그들이 말하는 치명적 사생활의 문제가 이번 사건의 핵심이 아니다. 위기를 인지하고, 사태에 접근하고, 문제를 해결하는 방식이 여전히 일방적이라는 게 가장 큰 문제다”고 지적했다.

Pop Culture Critic

“The role of the agency is not to schedule events and activities. They are supposed to make the images of the celebrities within their agencies – even their private lives. The reason why JYPE is receiving so much criticism from their fans is because they pushed all of the blame onto Jaebum. The core of the problem was the fatal private life mistake in this matter.” He went on to criticize, stating, “As always, the company’s one-sided decision making is the biggest issue here.”

Peran dari agensi bukanlah sebatas mengatur jadwal dan aktivitas artisnya. Mereka juga harus membentuk image dari para artis yang mereka tangani, bahkan sampai ke kehidupan pribadinya. Alasan yang membuat para fans mengkritik JYPE adalah karena mereka menimpakan semua kesalahan pada Jaebeom. Inti dari masalah ini adalah kesalahan yang fatal dalam kehidupan pribadi Jaebeom. Tapi, pernyataan sepihak dari JYPE telah menimbulkan permasalahan di sini.

한 가요계 관계자 “팬들은 JYP측이 밝힌 재범의 탈퇴 사유를 믿지 못하고 있다. ‘심각한 사생활 문제’가 범죄는 아닌 이상 충분히 멤버들이 감쌀 수 있는 문제라고 판단한다”며 “JYPE가 지속적으로 재범 마케팅을 해 온 만큼 멤버들의 간담회 발언도 신뢰를 잃었고, 그 분노가 안티화를 불렀다”고 분석했다.

Music Associate “Fans are not believing the reason for Jaebum’s withdrawal. If it was truly just a mistake made in his private life, and as long as he isn’t a criminal, I believe that the members should have been able to completely protect him. As much as the company has used ‘Jaebum Marketing,’ the members’ responses have also lost their credibility.”

Fans tidak percaya dengan pernyataan pengunduran diri Jaebeom. Kalau memang penyebabnya adalah kesalahan pribadi yang dibuat Jaebeom, selama kesalahan ini bukanlah tindak kriminal, saya yakin para member 2PM seharusnya bisa melindungi dan membela Jaebeom. Karena selama ini perusahaan telah memanfaatkan Jaebeom sebagai strategi pemasaran, maka pernyataan dari para member 2PM telah kehilangan kredibilitasnya.

스포츠서울 기사 “뿔난 팬에 법적대응?”…대화도 소통도 없었던 간담회 멤버들의 말 한마디 한마디가 팬들에겐 충격으로 다가왔다. 멤버들 또한 끊이지 않은 질문 공세에 날선 반응을 보였고, 심지어 ‘깽판’, ‘자격’ 등 오해의 소지가 있는 발언으로 팬들의 분노를 샀다. 멤버들이 한 멤버의 탈퇴를 두고 다른 멤버들이 일제히 등을 돌린 모습은 ‘형제애’를 강조하던 2PM의 지난 모습이 아니었다. 실례로 “재범을 안고 활동하다가 추후 알려졌을 때 우리가 느낄 배신감을 생각하지 않을 수 없었다” “명절에 친척들 앞에서 인상쓰고 있을 순 없지 않느냐. 생방송 중에 재범이 형 돌아와달라고 사고를 쳐야하고 이런 자리에서 사고를 쳐주기를 바라냐. 우리가 그렇게 해야되냐”는 멤버들의 말은 듣는 사람에 따라 오해의 소지가 다분했다.

Sports Seoul “Taking legal action against upset fans? There were no conversations or communications in the conference. Every statement made by the members came as a shock to the fans. At the unending questions, the members went on the offense and gave sharp, pointed answers. With statements such as ‘make a commotion,’ and ‘the right to,’ the members’ choice of vocabulary only made the rage amongst fans grow bigger. This is not the brotherly image that 2PM had shown before as they now turn their backs on the member that has been terminated.”

“Akan menindaklanjuti para fans dengan jalan hukum?” Tidak ada pembicaraan maupun komunikasi yang terjadi dalam konferensi tersebut. Setiap pernyataan yang diberikan oleh member 2PM merupakan shock bagi para fans. Menanggapi pertanyaan-pertanyaan yang tidak ada akhirnya tersebut, para member 2PM malah memberikan jawaban-jawaban yang tajam dan sarkastis. Dengan pernyataan seperti “membuat keributan” dan “hak untuk”, pilihan kata-kata yang digunakan oleh para member malah memperburuk suasana hati para fans. Mereka sama sekali tidak menunjukkan image persaudaraan, yang sebelum ini selalu mereka tunjukkan, dan sekarang mereka telah mengkhianati Jaebeom.

마이데일리 기사 -“재범 사생활 모르쇠로 일관하는 jyp는 문제있어” 밝힐 수 없는 사생활의 문제는 의혹을 불러일으키며 수 많은 루머를 양산해 냈다. 결국 간담회에서도 2PM멤버는 물론 JYP관계자들 또한 “루머 이상가는 문제다”고 재범의 잘못을 확대하기에만 바빴다. 재범은 사생활에 문제가 있었다는 것이 탈퇴이유로 알려졌고, 더 나아가 ‘도덕적 문제가 있는 사람’까지 치부되고 있는 실정이다. 재범의 도덕적 문제가 사실이건 아니건 1차적으로 그를 감싸줘야 하는 것은 미국에서 재범을 발탁해서 교육을 시키고 함께해온 그 누구도 아닌 2PM멤버들 더 나아가 JYP엔터테인먼트임은 자명한 사실이다.

MyDaily “There’s a problem with JYPE playing dumb to Jaebum’s private life. After they revealed that Jaebum had made a secret problem in his private life, rumors began pouring out. Eventually, at the conference, JYPE and the 2PM members alike were only busy making the actual severity of Jaebum’s mistake bigger by stating things such as, “It’s a problem bigger than those rumors.” It’s been known to the public that Jaebum has been terminated from the group because of an unhealthy social life and he is now known as someone with morality problems. Whether or not Jaebum has committed a mistake of morality or not, it’s only obvious that the people that have chosen him from America and trained him here should be the ones responsible and the ones that must protect him. Not even the 2PM members, but JYP Entertainment.”

Masalahnya ada pada JYPE yang tidak menunjukkan  kepedulian pada kehidupan pribadi Jaebeom. Setelah mengeluarkan pernyataan bahwa Jaebeom telah melakukan sebuah kesalahan pribadi, rumour mulai beredar. Bahkan, pada konferensi tersebut, JYPE dan para member 2PM malah semakin memperburuk situasi bagi Jaebeom dengan mengatakan “Masalah ini lebih parah daripada rumor-rumor yang beredar.” Kini publik memandang Jaebeom sebagai seseorang dengan kehidupan pribadi yang sangat bermasalah dan seseorang yang punya masalah moralitas. Tapi, entah Jaebeom memang telah melakukan kesalahan yang menyangkut moralitas atau tidak, bagaimanapun juga perusahaan yang telah memilih Jaebeom dari Amerika dan melatihnya berkewajiban untuk bertanggung jawab dan melindungi Jaebeom. Ini bukan hanya ditujukan kepada anggota 2PM, tapi JYPE sendiri.

TVian기사 ….생략 특히 택연의 경우 ‘무슨 말인 지 못 알아듣겠다!’ ‘그건 재범에게 물어봐라’ 등 질문한 사람을 민망하게 하는 발언을 서슴지 않았으며, 우영의 경우 자신보다 한참 나이가 많은 팬들이 모였음에도 (심지어 어머니뻘도 참석했다) 시종일관 ‘가르치는 말투’로 대답을 이어가 청자들의 심기를 불편하게 했다고 전했다. 이 밖에도 팬들의 발언에 냉소적인 표정을 짓거나 실소를 터트리거나, 장시간의 대화에 하품을 하는 등 한마디 말보다 더욱 뼈아픈 표정과 행동으로 팬들의 민감한 감정을 건드렸다고 간담회 참석자는 말했다. 이날 2PM이 회사의 방침에 따라 움직였는지, 멤버 각자의 성격대로 했는지는 알 수 없으나 27일 간담회에서 보여준 그들의 태도는 확실히 성숙하지 못했다. ‘그렇다면 여러분은 왜 쉴드(방어를 뜻하는 인터넷 용어)를 안 해줬나요?’ 과연 어떤 스타와 연예기획사가 분노한 팬을 향해 팬으로서의 ‘책임’을 강요하면서 당당히 반문할 수 있는 것인지, 2PM의 열혈 팬들과 일반 대중조차 이해가 가지 않는 부분이다.

TVian “Taecyeon was not shy from making comments that made the audience blush in embarrassment, making statements such as, “I don’t know what you’re talking about,” and “Go ask Jaebum about that.” Wooyoung himself spoke in a lecturing tone to the fans despite the fact that they were quite a bit older than him (There was even someone as old as his mother in the audience). The responses that the members gave made those listening in the audience feel uncomfortable. The members even gave off sarcastic smiles or bitter laughters, sometimes even yawning. A participant of the conference stated that the actions of the members made the fans in the audience more guarded. They acted as if just being there, they were in unspeakable pain. Whether or not the 2PM members followed what the company told them to do, the attitude that they showed at the conference on the 27th was not mature at all. What kind of company would say to their fans, “Then why didn’t you guys shield Park Jaebum yourself?” What right do they have as an agency to lecture responsibility towards their angry fans? This is something that not even 2PM’s fans, but the mass public alike, doesn’t understand.”

“Taecyeon tidak ragu-ragu untuk membuat fans malu dan terperanjat dengan mengatakan ‘Aku tidak tahu apa yang sedang kau bicarakan’ dan ‘tanyakan saja sendiri pada Jaebeom’. Wooyoung juga berbicara dengan nada yang menggurui terhadap fans, bahkan terhadap fans yang lebih tua dari dirinya. Respon yang diberikan oleh para member 2PM membuat para fans yang hadir dan mendengarnya merasa tidak nyaman.

Para member bahkan tersenyum sinis dan tertawa mengejek, kadang-kadang bahkan menguap. Seorang audiens yang menghadiri konferensi tersebut mengatakan bahwa kelakukan para member 2PM membuat para  fans tersinggung. Member 2PM bersikap seolah-olah dengan berada di konferensi tersebut, mereka merasa terbebani dan terganggu.

Apakah para member hanya mengikuti perintah dari JYPE atau tidak, sikap yang mereka tunjukkan pada konferensi tersebut sangatlah tidak patut dan kekanak-kanakan. Perusahaan seperti apa yang akan mengatakan pada para fans “Jadi kenapa bukan kalian sendiri yang melindungi Park Jaebeom?” Apa hak perusahaan ini untuk menyuruh para fans yang sedang marah untuk bertanggung jawab?

Ini adalah hal yang membingungkan, bukan hanya bagi para fans 2PM, tapi juga masyarakat pada umumnya.

시사서울 “2PM 6명멤버, 재범때문에 뜨고 나니 지금은 뵈는게 없나?” 2PM간담회에서 재범편은 없었다, “내 평생 이런 아이돌은 처음본다” 양날개 얻은 2PM 재범이 “JYP 없어도 잘살 수 있다” 생생

Sisa Seoul “The 6 members of 2PM, do they think they have nothing to lose now that they are at the height of their popularity without Jaebum?” “There was no member on Jaebum’s side at the conference.” “I have never seen such idols act like this in my life.” “Jaebum has received wings, he can live fine without JYPE.” “The era of the beastly idols have come to an end, a new creation of fake idols rise.”

“Untuk Ke-enam member 2PM, apakah mereka pikir mereka tidak perlu khawatir akan apapun, sekarang setelah mereka terkenal tanpa Jaebeom?”

“Tidak ada yang memihak Jaebeom dalam konferensi tersebut.”

“Aku belum pernah melihat idol bertingkah seperti itu seumur hidupku.”

“Jaebeom sudah punya sayap (mungkin artinya Jaebeom saat ini dikelilingi oleh orang-orang yang menyayangi dan mendukungnya di Seattle) , jadi ia tidak memerlukan JYPE.”

“Era beastly idol telah berakhir. Sekarang adalah era fake idol (idol yang penuh kepalsuan).”

I still stand by my principle. I support Jaebeom. I like 1:59PM but won’t be such a fan like I used to be. If their songs are good or if their performances are amazing, I’ll give them props. If not, I’ll just ignore them. No need to turn into antifan. The truth will unveil itself in the end. If Jaebeom is right, he will prevail. If JYPE and 1:59PM are at fault, it’ll come to surface eventually.
