[Reporter Kim Yongho’s Thoughts on 2PM in Tokyo Dome ٩(^‿^)۶]
 Look at these antis getting all excited about that one manipulated picture, calling us blind for believing in it… (Excuse me, may I know which fandom you belong to? Ke)
 Though I’ve went to various of other Tokyo Dome concerts, but 2PM’s Tokyo Dome concert this time proves to be if not as great, then greater, than most of them.
 Manipulating is already a popular method to cover up the empty spaces on the 2nd and 3rd floor, which have always been hard to be completely filled by fans in the case of their first time having a concert there; regardless of who the celebrity is. But these days, getting the very hall filled is not a hard thing, even for these well-known K-Pop Idols. After all, even the illegal tickets would get sold out even if they were expensive… Ke
 And one thing for sure is, 2PM’s undeniably successful concerts that were held at the Tokyo Dome this time have placed themselves right behind DBSK. (But still all these people keep pointing out the flaw of that one picture, that is such a cheap shot. Don’t you think so, my kids~?)
 Of course. We can’t expect people who’ve lived like a frog stuck in a well and behaves like elementary school students to understand the feelings of these idols and their fans. What do they know about the honor of performing at the Tokyo Dome, yes?
 By the way! The 1st K-pop artist who performed at the Tokyo Dome was Rain in 2007. (Just like I’ve said, even then I heard from my fellow colleagues that the 2nd and 3rd floor had a few empty spaces. But still, it was a successful concert.)
 Though I have to agree that popularity based on manipulated information will eventually fall down once it’s exposed later on, but the popularity that surrounds celebrities like DBSK, Big Bang, 2PM; their true level of popularity can never be manipulated or distorted by reporters, no matter how much they try. Even I couldn’t believe just how huge 2PM’s popularity in Japan had gotten, I’m able to confirm this with my own eyes when I had attended their concert in Tokyo Dome this time Ke
 If I were to exclude the consideration of which company such and such belong to, and instead consider in all the celebrities in the K-Pop industry, I truly believe that 2PM is the most appropriate successor of DBSK. Big Bang promotes a very different genre of music while groups like Infinite and the likes still needs to invest their promotion towards the international market.
 Of course, the reason why I choose 2PM are not only by looking at their albums sales. I’ve looked into how both of them do their activities in Japan, the enthusiasm of their fans, the path that both of the groups have gone through, (even the incidents that have happened to both of them…), both of the groups have gone through a lot of surprisingly similar events along their way. Btw I’m talking about 2PM right now, why would you suddenly want to get Super Junior, Shinee, SNSD, involved in this? Ke
