Rumors are heating up over 2AM‘s Jinwoon and actress Kang Sora being the potential leads in ‘Dream High 2‘.
One representative revealed, “It’s known that Jung Jinwoon and Kang Sora were chosen as the leads… It seems they are looking for new faces in the amateur field.”
Both Jinwoon and Kang Sora are said to be finalizing their decisions.
A representative relayed, “A script reading was originally planned on November 23rd but a problem arose, causing it to be cancelled. In addition to the main leads, a novice singer and a girl group member will also join the cast — it will be a mass of rookies.”
Massive billboards of 2AM looking chic in all-black with the caption ‘K-POP No.1 Vocal Group‘ can be seen on tall buildings in major regions like Shibuya and Shinjuku of Tokyo. These billboards were put up in an effort to promote the boys’ new Japanese debut single “Never Let You Go” which is scheduled to be released in January 2012.
Their Korean album ‘Saint o’clock‘ released last September in Japan rose to the #3 slot on the Oricon charts, and therefore fans have high expectations for this debut single as well.
Ahead of their Japanese promotions, the boys of 2AM will be also holding a Christmas concert on December 24th and 25th at the Jamsil Stadium in Seoul.
