“Stand by for attack” The reason for the anticipation for Yunho’s comeback to K-pop


TVXQ’s U-Know Yunho has returned to the stage.
On the 19th, SM Entertainment revealed that at the upcoming SMTOWN LIVE 6th WORLD TOUR to be held at the Seoul Sangam World Cup Stadium, U-Know Yunho would be presenting a solo stage. That this would be the first SMTOWN concert in Seoul in 3 years since it was last held in 2014, coupled with the fact that it would be U-Know Yunho’s first performance after being discharge, has captured the attention of fans.

Although many idols have returned from the army, the anticipation for U-Know Yunho is of a different level. On April 20th, he was discharged from the 26th Mechanised Infantry Division after completing 21 months of military service. Through his exemplary army life, it was alongside the attainment of the title, of becoming a designated Special Class Soldier. Continue reading

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

[Trans] 170422 TVXQ, a “Good Example” of Idol Military Service


On the 20th, as TVXQ’s member, U-Know Yunho was discharged after completing his military service, “desirable examples” of idol groups’ military service received attention once more.

TVXQ enlisted in both July and November of 2015, with U-Know Yunho and Choikang Changmin received attention for enlisting with a difference of 4 months. From a fan’s position, the two who had accompanied each other by enlisting for military service close to each other in order to minimise the team’s hiatus (from the spotlight), was a thing to be glad for.

In the case of Choikang Changmin who was born in 1988, he is younger than U-Know Yunho, who was born in 1986, by 2 years and could have delayed his enlistment by 2 years but rather than individual activities, Continue reading
