The segment is slated to be titled 2PM's One-point Korean, and the members will be mainly teaching useful travel phrases. The group made its Japanese debut last year, and successfully completed the 'Republic of 2PM' Japan Arena Tour. The group held nine shows in six different Japanese cities, including Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya and Fukuoka. Two of its members, Taecyeon and Chansung, have appeared in a Japanese TV drama as well.
