[NEWS] TVXQ’s Yunho reveals the touching story behind his thumbs-up pose

On February 15th, TVXQ’s Yunho moved viewers on SBS’s “Strong Heart“ by revealing the story behind his characteristic ‘thumbs-up pose’.

He stated, “When I first came up from Gwangju, my father and grandfather disapproved of my trainee life severely. At one point, I lost all support from my home and was forced to sleep homeless at a subway station in Seoul.”

Yunho continued, “Right before I debuted, my grandfather passed away. I heard that his condition was bad while we were recording for our debut album, so I went back down to my hometown. My grandfather, who was always known to be quiet, gave me a thumbs up. That was the last image I have of him.”

“For three days, I cried night and day. And then I became determined – I will rise to the top one day and keep my promise to my grandfather. Only then would I let go all of the tears I held up inside of me. If you look closely, I have a lot of pictures of me with the thumbs up pose, and it’s because I never want to forget the promise I made with my grandfather.”

He concluded, “I hope to receive a lot of good awards at the year’s end, and cry to my heart’s content.”

Later on the show, Yunho also showed off his ‘four leaf clover trick’ with his tongue, which amused the studio greatly since other idols showed off talents like dancing or voice imitations.

Changmin hilariously added, “It’s kind of weird staring at another person’s tongue like this.”

On the latest episode of SBS’s “Strong Heart“, Minah performed a ‘kkab‘ version of HyunA’s “Change” choreography. With overly-exaggerated movements, Minah succeeded in cracking up her audience, as they called out, “Daebak, daebak!“”

[NEWS] Yunho got his stage name from an online game?

On today’s episode of SBS’ Strong Heart, TVXQ’s Yunho, was a guest along with fellow member Changmin. On the show, Yunho revealed the origin of his stage name.

He stated, “My singer / stage name is U-Know Yunho, and it stands for ‘you know me and I know you’. To tell you the truth, I thought of the name from an online game I used to play. My username for that game was ‘U-Know Yunho’. In the game, I reached the high level of ’supreme’, which was right before the highest level of ‘God’. Right before I became God, I debuted in TVXQ (Rising Gods Of The East).”

It’s quite hilarious that we all expect their names to come from some place more meaningful… well, I guess that game was pretty important to Yunho.

[NEWS] Moon Hee Jun compares TVXQ now to TVXQ as trainees

On this week’s episode of SBS’s “Strong Heart”, former H.O.T member Moon Hee Jun expressed his amazement over the growth of TVXQ’s U-Know Yunho and Max Changmin.

“Eight years ago, when Yunho and Changmin came up to me as trainees and greeted me, I just said “Okay” and didn’t give it a second thought. Back then, the two got kicked out of the practice room and went into the basement because of me,” said Moon Hee Jun.

He continued, “But now, they’re sitting in the rows in front of me. If I knew they were going to be this successful, I should’ve just gone down to the basement instead,” causing the set to roar with laughter.

Turning to the witty and hilarious Changmin, Moon Hee Jun praised, “My cute junior Changmin has finally burst with comedy after eight years. I’m envious of Changmin today.”

Moon Hee Jun even commented on a previous confession by Girl’s Day’s Min Ah about her being a long time fangirl of Yunho’s. “To my dear Junists (Moon Hee jun’s fanclub), please become singers and come onto “Strong Heart”. And I beg you, please talk about me.”

On February 15th, TVXQ’s Yunho guested on SBS’s “Strong Heart” and shared his personal story about being terrorized by an anti-fan.

After TVXQ released their third album in October of 2006, an anti-fan had given Yunho a drink with an adhesive mixed in. After drinking it, he began to vomit and was immediately rushed to the ER; the idol was hospitalized for a few days of treatment. Although the ant-fan turned herself in, the shock of the incident did not wear off for some time.

Yunho revealed, “A long time ago, I was terrorized by a drink. Someone gave me a drink with a poisonous substance in it, and I thought, ‘why did it have to be me? I don’t even know that person, why did I have to be terrorized?’”

He continued, “At that age, the incident was something bigger than what I could handle. Even though I can laugh and talk about it now, I was truly afraid of people then.”
