Korean boy band 2PM finished their two-day "Legend of 2PM in Tokyo Dome" concert on April 20 and 21 and were so overwhelmed by the support of more than 100,000 Japanese fans that they cried.

The dome was filled to the rafters as fans showed their love for the boy band.
2PM performed more than 30 songs on each concert day including "Heartbeat," "I Hate You," "10 Out of 10," "Tired of Waiting," "I'm Your Man" and "I Was Crazy About You."

During the second day of the concert, 2PM thanked their fans for always supporting them.

Nichkhun was in tears as he apologized for his drunk driving incident last year.
"You must have suffered because of me, but I'm thankful you still trust me and love me. I'll work hard to make a great comeback. Thank you, and I love you," he said, according to ENewsWorld.

During the press conference for the concert, the boys said performing at Tokyo Dome was their dream.

"We've dreamed of singing at the Tokyo Dome since our debut in Japan. We can′t take our eyes off of the 110,000 fans before us. We are so thankful and happy. We want to dedicate this honor to our Hottests, who always support 2PM. We′ll run harder and do our best," 2PM said.

The boy band also hoped that through their music, they will become the ambassadors of peace between Korea and Japan.

"We hope 2PM's promotions will help bridge the gap between the two cultures. Those who like 2PM will be able to understand Korean culture more, and their knowledge may be passed down to their children and grandchildren. Through such processes, 2PM may help in lessening anti-Korea opinions. We'll work harder thinking that we can become ambassadors of peace," ENewsWorld quoted them as saying.

The boys are preparing for their comeback in Korea with the release of their third album in May. JYP Entertainment revealed on April 22 the final code for 2PM's new album.

In addition, 2PM will release their sixth Japanese single, "Give Me Love," on May 29. "Give Me Love" was used as the theme song for the Japanese drama "Take Five."

Recently, 2PM's "I Love U, U Love Me," topped Japan's Recochoku ringtone chart. The song was written by Taecyeon for the Tokyo Dome concert.
