Ok Taec-Yeon (born December 27, 1988), generally known as Taecyeon, is a member in the Korean boy band 2PM, where he’s mainly responsible for the rapping parts. In 2010, Taecyeon gave his debut as an actor in the Korean drama Cinderella’s Sister.
Taecyeon was born in Seoul, South Korea, but emigrated with his family to Bedford, Massachusetts, where his parents and older sister still currently reside. Taecyeon himself lived there for seven years before returning to pursue his career in Korea. Taecyeon was educated at Gel In High School in Seoul and studied Business Administration at Dankook University.
It was his sister who persuaded him to participate in a JYP Entertainment-audition, whose promotion she had noticed when surfing on the internet. After his reluctant agreement to participate, both headed for New York City on his 17th birthday. A week later, he was chosen for the final 35 and finally got the call-back to go to Korea for the further competition. At first, Taecyeon applied to become a model, but the judges suggested him to try to do dancing and singing. He eventually was named one of the dozen finalists (including his future bandmates Junho and Chansung) to compete in the show Superstar Survival, but was the first contestant to leave the show.
In 2008, he took part in Mnet’s Hot Blood Men which follows the extreme training of 13 trainees in order to become a member of the boy band One Day. One Day spawned two boy bands, 2AM and 2PM, of which the latter one Taecyeon became a member of. Six months after Hot Blood was aired on TV, 2PM debuted with their first single “10점 만점에 10점” (“10 Points out of 10 Points”) from their first EP Hottest Time of the Day, but it wasn’t until their second EP 2:00PM Time For Change which skyrocketed their success in the Korean music industry. So far, 2PM has released one studio album and two further EPs.
Taecyeon is featured in “Yes I’m In Love” by Bada on her fourth album and Baek Ji-Young’s 2009 song “내 귀에 캔디” (My Ear’s Candy). He formally hosted SBS’s music show Inkigayo with Wooyoung, and was a permanent cast member on Family Outing 2 before it got canceled.
In 2010, he saw his debut as an actor in the 2010 KBS drama series “신데렐라 언니” (“Cinderella’s Sister”) alongside Moon Geun Young and Chun Jung-myung. His second drama is Dream High, which he acted as Jinguk which premiered on January 3, 2011.
On December 9, 2010, a JYP Entertainment representative revealed that “Taecyeon would like to give up his American permanent residence visa, and recently on December 1st, he received his official confirmation for his permanent residence cancellation.”
Taecyeon has gotten a physical examination for drafting and received a physical body status sufficient enough to only enlist as public service personnel due to his poor vision and dislocated shoulder back in 2008. However, he is currently thinking of getting another physical examination in order to complete active military duties.
The JYP representative stated, “Taecyeon has voiced out thoughts of wanting to enter the military service. He submitted his documents on the 1st and is clear on his actions.” He went on to explain, “Now that Taecyeon wants to enter active duties, he recently received a re-examination. I think he was affected by the recent Yeonpyeong Island shelling, so we want to respect his decision.” He concluded that, “Since Taecyeon is still at a young age, he won’t be entering the military immediately. He is currently active as an actor as well as continuing his studies, so we still need to watch over him.”
On the February 7th, 2011 broadcast of KBS2TV’s “Yeo Yu Man Man,” Taecyeon shared his thoughts on his enlistment situation stating that he plans to get corrective eye surgery so he can enlist.
Taecyeon stands 6 ft 1 in (1.85 m) and weighs 76 kg (170 lb; 12.0 st). He speaks English, Korean and Japanese. His hobbies include wakeboarding, skiing, listening to music and cooking. He believes in Christianity. Sumber : Wikipedia

After high school, he was a coach at Rosemead High School for their badminton team. There, he was scouted by Park Jin-young, a K-pop singer and the producer of JYP Entertainment, at the Los Angeles Korean Music Festival.
After passing the audition hosted by JYP Entertainment, he signed a ten-year contract with the company but later resigned for an eight-year contract, not including training, and was brought to South Korea in 2006 as a trainee, being put into a class of 24 other students. Park Jin-young informed him that he was required to learn Mandarin Chinese and Korean to also work out regularly and learn how to dance and to sing. First appeared through MNET’s Hot Blood, a program that showed the intense physical training that 13 male trainees had to go through for the opportunity to debut in either 4-member ballad group 2AM or 7-member dance group 2PM under JYP Entertainment.
On 4 September 2008, Nichkhun debuted as a 2PM member with their first single “10점 만점에 10점” (“10 Points out of 10 Points”) from their single album “Hottest Time of the Day.”

2PM is a South Korean boy band, originally a seven-member group, but currently consisting of six members due to the sudden contract termination of leader Jaebeom following an Internet controversy in September 2009. They are managed by JYP Entertainment. The current members are Junsu, Junho, Nichkhun, Taecyeon, Wooyoung and Chansung.
2PM is one of the two subgroups branched out from the eleven-member (before Jaebeom’s departure) boy band One Day, the other being 2AM. They debuted with the song “10 Jeom Manjeome 10 Jeom” (10점 만점에 10점, lit. 10 Points Out of 10 Points), which showcased their acrobatic dance styles. They achieved their first No. 1 song with “Again & Again”.
The members of 2PM all auditioned (except Nichkhun, who was scouted) to become part of JYP Entertainment, to which the Wonder Girls & 2AM also belong. Some members held their auditions in other countries; for example, Park Jaebeom auditioned in the United States. Other members already had experience in the entertainment industry prior to their acceptance into JYP Entertainment, such as Kim Junsu, who had won various singing competitions, and Ok Taecyeon, Lee Junho and Hwang Chansung, who had participated in the show ‘SuperStar Survival’.
2PM’s and 2AM’s training days were filmed in a documentary called Hot Blood Men, which aired on Mnet. The show documented the time by time training program of the JYP trainees who were to be part of the group “One Day”, as well as the elimination of three trainees from the group during the time.
Unlike other Korean record labels, their record label JYP Entertainment opted to promote them with a more mature than “pretty-boy” (in Korean ggotminam) image.
2PM debuted with their single “10 Jeom Manjeome 10 Jeom” (10점 만점에 10점, lit. 10 Points Out Of 10 Points) on September 4, 2008. On October 17, 2008, they began promotion of “Only You”, another song from their debut mini album “Hottest Time of the Day.”
On April 16, 2009, the group released their second mini album 2:00PM Time For Change, which they began promoting on April 23. On May 9, 2009, they won their first Mutizen Song award on M!Countdown since their debut; in the same week, they won their second Mutizen on SBS Inkigayo.
The group earned their third Mutizen the following week, completing the triple crown and making them ineligible to win for the following weeks. However, the award that had been eluding them – Music Bank – was quickly won soon after. On June 11, 2PM began promotions for “Niga Mipda” (니가 밉다, lit. I Hate You) on M!Countdown. On July 2 and 3, 2PM achieved first place on the M!Countdown and Music Bank charts for the song “Niga Mipda”. They achieved the triple crown for the song on M!Countdown by July 16. On July 30, 2PM won the ‘Only One Song’ award on M!Countdown.
On September 4, 2009, articles surfaced on the internet regarding Jaebeom’s posts from 2005 on his personal Myspace account, in which he expressed his dislike for Korea while still a trainee for JYP Entertainment. Jaebeom issued an apology regarding this matter. Although outraged protesters demanded that Jaebeom should be forced out of 2PM, JYP Entertainment CEO Park Jin-young stated on September 7 that he was going to continue to remain part of the group. The following day, Jaebeom announced on his official fancafe that he would be leaving the group and returning to the United States, with plans of going back to school and bettering his understanding of music, and also apologized to the other 2PM members for not being a good leader and older brother to the group. Park Jin-young has confirmed that he will respect the singer’s decision, and that 2PM will continue on as a 6-member group. Additionally, due to the sensitive topic of Jaebeom’s departure, all 2PM members were withdrawn from their regular appearances on variety shows.
The group finished re-filming their music video for “Heartbeat”, the title song of their first full-length album, without Jaebeom on October 31, 2009. During a press conference, it was revealed that Jaebeom’s vocals would not be removed from the songs. The day after the now 6-member 2PM’s full-length album was released, Park Jin-young released a statement that Jaebeom would return as a member of 2PM if he wanted to make a comeback, while indicating that his return was not imminent. In further support of Jaebeom’s place in the group, the six 2PM members have also decided to distribute their income from their 1st album with him, sending him an equally divided amount of the earnings.
The group’s first full length album, titled 1:59PM, was released on November 10, 2009. Both the album and title track, “Heartbeat”, quickly rose to the #1 position on multiple music sales charts. The group made their first comeback performance, signifying the beginning of their promotional activities for the album, on M.Net’s ‘O Good Concert’ on Thursday, November 12, 2009, subsequently making their KBS Music Bank, MBC Music Core and SBS Inkigayo comebacks on Friday, November 13, Saturday, November 14 and Sunday, November 15, respectively.
On November 20, 2009, 2PM performed at and was honored with two awards by the M.net Asian Music Awards (previously known as M.net KM Music Festival): the award for Best Male Group and Artist of the Year (the latter being one of the three most prestigious awards, or “Daesang”s, at the show, which also include Song of the Year and Album of the Year). The group paid homage to him during their performance of “Again & Again”, in which a spotlight was shown over Jaebeom’s usual position in the dance formation and his vocals were not replaced.
