2PM’s Wooyoung Gets Ignored by His Fellow Members
Earlier today, Junho shared an old screenshot of a conversation between 2PM members on his twitter. He tweeted, “Ah well, well…No one went to the basement. Quietly exits,” revealing Wooyoung’s humiliating incident.
The screenshot was of a group chat that Wooyoung had created. He had invited Taecyeon, Chansung, Junsu, and Junho (Nichkhun was in Thailand at the time) to the chat to ask them to join him in the practice room. Wooyoung wrote, “Yo. Those who want to practice dancing with me!!! Please come to the basement kkkk” Chansung responded, “Hey U-dong, next time…!!” before leaving the chat. Moments after Chansung, Taecyeon, who didn’t even bother to respond, also left the chatroom.
Netizens commented, “Wow, really cool,” “Aww, 2PM is so cute,” “LOL to the member who bothered to screenshot this but not respond,” “You can see all their personalities in this photo,” and more.
Meanwhile, Wooyoung will hold his first solo stage tonight, June 28, at the “20s Choice Awards,” days before the release of his first solo album.

Spring, Sentience, and Sorority in Davichi’s “Hug” Written by Irteqa On February 1, 2015
One thing utterly unique about Davichi is the fact that both songstresses, Hae-ri and Min-kyung, emit an outstanding warmth in unity with one another. One does not vocally exceed the other, the other does not surpass the one with her beauty. They are one voice, one artist, one “shining light”, inhabiting musicality and creating nostalgia. This solitary splendor is heightened in the duo’s latest mini-album, Hug. What is more epitomizing of unity than a sweet and sisterly hug? . ... Read more
