2AM’s Jo Kwon Thanks BTS’s J-Hope For Sweet Show Of Support
After a seven-year hiatus, 2AM made their long-awaited comeback as a full group this week with the new album “Ballad 21 F/W,” which features double title tracks composed by Big Hit Entertainment and HYBE founder Bang Si Hyuk and JYP Entertainment founder Park Jin Young.
J-Hope, who used to be labelmates with 2AM under Big Hit Entertainment and featured on Jo Kwon’s 2012 solo track “Animal” when he was still a trainee, showed love for the group’s first comeback in seven years with a post on Weverse. On November 3, the BTS member shared a screenshot of himself listening to 2AM’s new B-side “I can’t” with several cute emojis.
Shortly afterwards, Jo Kwon took to Twitter to reveal that not only had J-Hope shown love for the song on Weverse, but he had also contacted Jo Kwon personally to share his enthusiasm about the album.
Sharing a screenshot of J-Hope’s post and a string of purple heart emojis, Jo Kwon wrote, “Thank youuu. You contacted me to say that you listened to the album late at night into the wee hours of the morning and that it moved your heart, listening to it at that hour, and now this. I’m so touched.”
