Here’s the letter released by the production team of “Wild Bunny” supporting 2PM leader Jaebum:
Hello. We are the Wild Bunny Production team.
As you would all know through the news articles, we had to delay the airing of the 9/8 final episode of Wild Bunny indefinitely.
All the filming and editing has been done, and the episode was ready to go, but we had to make the decision not to air this.
In the current situation, we think that airing the program where 2pm members and Jaebum are laughing and having a good time would not help the audience, the 2pm members, and Jaebum.
Also, after getting to know the real 2pm members and Jaebum, and their personalities, we did not want to do anything that would bring harm to them.
Although they were busy with overseas activities and must have been exhausted, Jaebum would always come in before the mannager to greet us, and tell us that he had read the outline for the episode.. reciting it for us.
And even though maitaining the idol image must have been important to him, he was always the first to just let loose (be funny).
He would come talk to us (who have a fear of talking to famous people) and always start the conversation.
Even though he didn’t have to worry about the ratings, he would worry about it with us.
Even though his interview was over, he would share snacks with us and wait for us to finish filming…
When the filming involved eating, and the production team couldn’t eat, but they had to eat, they always felt bad and didn’t know what to do..
and amongst the members, Jaebum was always the one that smiled and tried to lift the energy of his fellow members who were tired and exhausted from the crazy schedules..
Even during the filming of the last episode, (although we didn’t even tell them to) they brought over the broom and started cleaning up the confetti and trash..
After working with them and seeing this side them, the productio team wanted to lift some of the burden off of 2pm and Jaebum’s shoulders… even if it only makes a small impact..
That is why we have chosen to delay the airing of the episode indefinitely..
Of course, we are heartbroken and sad that he had made a mistake.
And it is true that if he needs the deserved criticism and right punishments, he needs to get them.
However, our production team wants to continue to root for the honest, compassionate boys who possess the qualities of a great singer.
Today, the production team, like any other day finished the editing, took out the master tape, put in the music mixing
and finished the final editing.
Perhaps a little later, the final tape will come out and wait for its owner to show up some day…
We don’t know when that will be… but our team will take good care of it!
Finally, we hope this won’t be too stressful/difficult of a trip for Jaebum…..
