Where is 2AM Now? The Half of the One Big Group 'One Day' that Also Consisted of 2PM

2AM is known to be one of the two subgroups of JYP Entertainment's previous boy group, One Day, the other one is 2PM. They are more of a ballad vocal group rather than a traditional K-pop group as they have a softer image and typically promote with ballad songs, unlike 2PM.

It has been six years since 2AM went on a hiatus, hence, many fans might be wondering what the members are doing now. In this article, we will have a rundown of what the 2AM members - Jo Kwon, Changmin, Seulong, and Jinwoon - have been doing since leaving JYPE and Big Hit.

2AM made their debut in July 2008 with their first single, entitled "This Song." The ballad vocal group also debuted in Japan with their first full-length album, "Voice," in January 2013. After a year, 2AM returned to JYP Entertainment, and "Let's Talk" was their first release under the company.

In 2015, three 2AM members (Jinwoon, Seulong, and Changmin) left JYPE, while Jo Kwon only parted ways with the agency in 2017. While the four members are signed under different agencies, 2AM has not disbanded.

Since then, 2AM has been inactive in the music industry as a group. But, the quartet plans on making a full group comeback soon.

2AM's leader, Jo Kwon, joined CUBE Entertainment after his contract with JYPE ended in 2017, after 16 years. He released his first single under CUBE in January 2018, titled "Lonely."
