TVXQ's Changmin has this surprising desire, to become a member of Super Junior. Both are under the same labels, S.M. Entertainment and Avex Trax. The singer and actor also revealed what makes him and band mate Yunho so different.
As noted by website Soompi, TVXQ and Lee Seung-chul will be appearing on KBS2TV's reality programme, 'Happy Together,' on October 5. The episode will be part of the KBS show's "Return of the Legends" Chuseok special.
While the 'Happy Together' episode was being filmed, TVXQ's Changmin talked about how he sometimes envies the free atmosphere enjoyed by Super Junior members and has actually wanted to become a member of that group before. TVXQ being a pop duo, the difference in the personalities of him and Yunho become too obvious.
Changmin revealed that because Yunho is very goal-oriented and passionate, he feels pressure to compete because his personality is much more easy-going. "I have a hard time because Yunho is too energetic. He gets called 'passion chaebol' or 'king of passion' by everyone around him." Changmin then added, "I don't like competing. I prefer to take a step back and just go at my own pace."
Changmin stressed on the point further by saying, "I'd even pay to be a member of Super Junior just once." Even though everyone was laughing, Yunho was listening and didn't like what Changmin was trying to imply. He said, "It made me angry to hear that. We worked so hard to create our 'TVXQ' brand, so why does he want to go somewhere else?" Changmin took this opportunity to point out the differences in the personalities between himself and Yunho. He said, "See? I said it as a joke and he took it so seriously,"
In the same interview, Yunho revealed that he almost became a career soldier. He said he had achieved a score of 90 or higher in shooting, strength, mental strength, and combat training and was awarded the status of special class soldier. Following this, he said, "I received a request to become a full-time soldier. I considered becoming the first celebrity career staff sergeant until Changmin's discharge." To this Changmin said, "I was just fine with being a normal soldier."
The pisode featuring TVXQ will air on October 5 at 11:10 p.m. KST.
