Livedoor will be publishing a series of interviews with Toho band members following the Toho dancers interviews published back in 2018 September!
The second interview features Toho band member Bass (@watarumble) Suzuki Wataru!
Similarly, amongst the different questions they were asked about their career, they were asked about their thoughts of Tohoshinki members. Below is a translation of some relevant parts of the interview!
– What kind of impression do you have toward the two of TOHOSHINKI?
Well, other people have already said this and I totally agree with them.. I think the two are “monsters” (laugh).
– This is the first time that I heard something like that!
Really? They work so hard in JPN and in KOR, they tell us something like”Tomorrow, we need to get up early.” “When we finish this, then we need to go back to KOR and we will have PV shooting.” But they put all their effort in everything. At Dome and Arena, a few ten thousand people are waiting for them. They have a strong determination/they are consistent to perform. No ordinary people can do that. But they can do it easily.. that is why I think that they are monsters
– I guess things are different in KOR and in JPN and i guess it must be really hard for them physically and mentally.
Yes, yes. I can’t do that (laugh). But under such circumstances, they are always cheerful and kind to us. Having said that, they are human being too. so I guess they must have sensitive parts in themselves. So I should not just leave it as “they are monsters” but I should do my best to support them as a member of TOHO team.

An anonymous comment about Changmin on the net:
“I’d been friends with him in high school. He performed so well he would stay at the 5th place or higher in class. He was really nice and cried easily, so I was amazed at how he could make it through the cruel idol industry. Changmin was even better at sports than students preparing for athletic shools. He ate freakin a lot yet was very slender. He was also good at basketball. I thought of getting in touch with him again when TVXQ is in decline, but I see they are continuously successful. Therefore, I won’t. And I also see his personality hasn’t changed. (But as far as I remember,) Changmin was tremendously extroverted and had hundreds of friends.”
