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

[INFO/Audio] 170505 A New JP FM Radio Show “Ton de K-POP♡We are T!” Dedicated to Tohoshinki was Launched!

Starting from Friday the 5th, fans can now tune to the new japanese radio show dedicated to Tohoshinki!

The new FM program 「トンでK-POP♡We are T!」 (Ton de K-POP♡We are T!) started on 170505, and will be broadcast every Friday on 8pm-9pm JST by a Tonpen {p/n: Japanese nickname for Tohoshinki fan} DJ with a one hour full of TVXQ’s Japanese and Korean songs [cr: @xx__0_0__xx]!

Some says the DJ is a Hokkaido Bigeast who’s working in the radio who started this show of hers [cr: @kabo2428 , translated by @snxy]!

A fan (@xx__0_0__xx) searched about this radio programme and it seems it is not related Officially to Tohoshinki or Avex. She has never heard of such kind of program in Japan: one hour full of songs/letters from listeners/information all about AN ARTIST (and a little bit of other k-pop group songs/information) but not sponsored by the artist’s company!



The DJ seems to go by the name kaz and seems to be a huge Tohoshinki fan based on her blog.

Here’s a recorded piece of audio from the broadcast:

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.
