Now, (he has) returned. U-Know Yunho has returned. Returning from the army and, also as <Arena>’s cover model. In the period between the 2014 March issue and the 2017 June issue, he has at times, filled it up, and at times, reduced it.
U-Know Yunho’s lines have widened. Of course, this could be a preconception. This is because he has broken through what Korean society had thought the army symbolised. Perhaps it could also not be a preconception. This is because one changes according to what one experiences. No matter what significance there is, the army is a strange environment. Like the whisky in an oak barrel, you are affected by your environment. In there, you mature and your character is changed. As compared to previously, he could look at the camera with a slightly different density. This difference is subtle yet at times, clear. These are aspects that play a part in contributing to the preconception as well as that difference. U-Know Yunho is clearly aware of this about himself. In that space, that period of time, has made him stronger. He said. “The army was my turning point.” It looks like the feeling that his lines have widened, is not just a feeling after all.
Q. This is the first photoshoot since you’ve been discharged. It is the first sight of you being handsomely unveiled to the public after being dressed up.
That’s why I’m more nervous. At first, it would be okay if I had slept well and then presented myself with a good appearance but because I would be greeting (the public) through this photoshoot, Continue reading →
Apparently, beside the SMTown Seoul announced on the 8th , there seems to be an SMTown Japan in July the 27th and 28th. This is not exactly an official news announcement, but it was heard from SM CEO Kim Youngmin as he was talking with Moon Jaein, a leading presidential candidate, via a livestream.
If it is confirmed, then it means we will possibly see Yunho representing Tohoshinki there. |EDIT: However, it should be noted that nothing has been officially stated yet regarding the artists participating. |
Kim Youngmin: for our SMTown, it’s concerts in Japan on July 27th and 28th where all the singers will appear.
This post compiles pieces of Yunho’s speech in front of the fans! Some of them are as reported from the press and some of them are as reported from fans who were there, streamed the event, or translated the shared videos. Yunho said that he has been meeting up with Changmin each break and preparing for TVXQ’s comeback!!! Also, for today (20th) he is to spend it with his family at Seoul~
since only news article’s quotes will be linked, you could consider the rest as fanaccounts/direct video translations~
Yunho: I see some familiar faces among the press here that I saw before I enlisted. Thank you so much. It feels like time that stopped is starting to go again, so it feels a bit… what should I say… complicated.
Q: How was your army life?
Yunho: I think I had a ton of fun at the army. How should I say this, in society, I was U-Know Yunho, but I put everything down here and grew as a person, Jung Yunho. I served here in the 26th Division in the military band and the seniors and my comrades treated me like a person Jung Yunho, and I had the opportunity to grow. I’m thankful for the small things now, and I look around myself a bit more. Continue reading →
