“I was originally training to be the main vocalist of TRAX rather than as an idol trainee. At the time, my musical taste did not line up with SM producers, and I collided with them a bit. I always had to write letters of apology. I was frustrated and quit on debuting with TRAX, so I returned to my hometown of Gangwondo. TRAX’ Jungmo and Jay, TVXQ’sYunho, and Super Junior’s Donghae convinced me to return to SM.” - Heechul, Super Junior
“TVXQ Sunbaenims Are Forever Stars In My Heart. I Dreamed Of Becoming A Singer Watching TVXQ, So I Want To Be Like Them In The Future. I have Never Met Them Again Since The MV Filming When I Was Little, But If Given The Chance, I Really Want To Perform With Them On Stage. Not Too Long Ago We Performed ‘Balloons’, & It Was Refreshing. I Was Also Happy To Perform The Song By The Sunbaes I Admire. I Felt Like I Was Showing Them That I Have Grown Up Well.” - Moonbin, ASTRO
“I love the relationship we have now, we believe in each other, and I’ll trust the rest of my endurance to come from myself. I think that’s enough. I’m truly grateful that up until now and even now, he’s here beside me. I’ve said ‘thank you’ countless times to convey that feeling.” - Shim Changmin
Some might only see him as a charismatic star on stage, but he is also a very caring man with a warm heart. I said this in the German newspaper once too, but he is really one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. He always tried to get closer, and even though it was his first time on the ice, he worked extremely hard, which led to tremendous improvement during such a short span of time. I could see why he became part of DBSK after practicing with him, and he gave me so many lessons as a person. As I saw him improve, I looked back at myself and tried to learn from him. In fact, his encouraging words after the program are still driving me to do my best at whatever I do. I normally am not the type of person to say this, but if you’re ever reading this, Yunho oppa, thank you.
There are times that I feel lonely. When I’m done with all my schedules and get home, and planning to lie down on my bed, I sometimes get lonely. If I am unable to fall asleep, I read books. I slowly started to like reading, so I’m trying very hard to read lots of books. It seems like it helps me to improve on my flaws, and also allows me to widen my range of thinking–
Yesterday I cried a little. Last time there were many times where I managed to resist crying. Because I promise myself not to cry. But today I cried a lot. However I will only cry when I’m feeling most blessed. Today because of everyone’s love, I have cried a lot
Yunho [150402 ~ THSK With Tour final in Tokyo Dome]
“ Yunho hyung is a person that hardly cries. I’ve never seen him bursts out in tears before. Sometimes, I would feel that “now’is the right time to break down”, yet Yunho Hyung would always curb his tears from flowing out. After going through so much, I really feel that sometimes, tears cannot be held back in. Even if it’s me, I rarely saw him cry. I would feel that, this time round he could cry it out but he always resist those tears, how painful it must have been. ” -Changmin
