[Trans] 170821 Army-feel TVXQ the Pressure of Competing with Younger Friends

From the TVXQ! Press Conference Today at Seoul, Shilla Hotel in Jangchung-dong.

 

복무 중 특급전사를 획득했던 유노윤호는 “딸 거면 제대로 따자 싶었다. 만 25세 이상 성적 최고점으로 특급전사를 땄다”며 “그걸 땄을 때 외로웠다. 시선 같은 것에 부담감이 있었다”고 털어놨다.

최강창민은 “훈련을 받으면 몇 km 달리기를 해서 순위를 매긴다. ‘너무 무리하지 말아야지’ 생각했는데 스물한살, 스물두살이 나에게 오더니 형 뛸 수 있겠어요? 하더라. 깔보는 시선이 힘들었다. 보란듯이 몇 백명 속에서 4등을 했다”고 말해 웃음을 자아냈다.

유노윤호는 “군대에서 좋은 추억밖에 없다. 제일 힘들었던 건 내 자신과 생각하고 이야기하는 시간이 힘들고 뜻깊은 시간이었다”며 “자기반성의 시간, 동방신기로서 어떤 아이템을 가져가야 할지 수첩에도 적었다. 슬슬 그런 걸 꺼내볼까 한다”고 덧붙였다.

Translation:

On the tough thing about being in the army, “There are different expectations for celebrities than with (regular) men”

Yunho who had attained the title of Special Class Soldier said “If I could get, I wanted to get it properly (all the way). Only those who are 25 years and above with the best results could get the Special Class Soldier.”, “when I got it, I was lonely. The attention and such was pressurising.”

Changmin: During basic training, the ranking is determined by how many km you run. I thought it was ridiculous, there were 21 and 22 year olds who were going up to me and saying ‘hyung, can you run?’ With that kind of belittling perspective/mindset, it was tough. I am proud to say that in the hundreds of people, I attained 4th place.

Yunho: I have nothing but good memories of the army. In the toughest of times, it was also a hard and significant time for me to self-reflect. In the time of self-reflection, I also wrote down what items I had to have as TVXQ. I wondered if I should bring those up slowly.
