A dream to be prosecutor
The fact why U-Know Yunho (23) was chosen as the group’s leader.
All members said that it’s because his “charismatic charisma”, and he himself is someone who has a high awareness about the surroundings (T/N: care with other people).
His father is very strict. He’s been taught about a sincere manliness for a belief that “a man should be like this” in him. Due to his father’s lesson, from the very young age, he’s trained to not easily whinny when he made mistakes.
He becomes a natural leader and always been chosen as captain. His dream was to be a public prosecutor back then.
From what being heard, he used to withstand his father a lot.
“It’s true. When I was in middle school, I was in my rebellious stage.”
But now he already gave up to make a change of the natural flow of his life.
“This is what I’m supposed be. I think it’s perfect.” he laughed excitingly.
He added, “When I was still as trainee in my agency, I had never got a compliment like “you did good”. I was wondering whether I wasn’t praised because the expectation of the company was greater. I so missed to get credit of what I did, back then.”
Just like other members, there’s a while in Japan when he’s thinking “Why can’t we be accepted?”. Many nights had passed sleeplessly. The unusual sense of responsibility in him forced out, thus the agony was doubled. “I was thinking about returning back to Korea. Whether this is what we really want to do. I was so scared.” he revealed.
Right now, their stardom has rose steadily in Japan with the stages in Budoukan and Tokyo Dome, however, the most surprising effect happened after they’re invited for the first time and debuted at NHK Kouhaku Red-White concert last year.
January this year.
When they went to Saipan in the PV shooting, the women of the local residents said, “We know Tohoshinki. We watched them in Red-White concert.”
“Not only young people, but Grandpa, grandma, and even people abroad, they know Tohoshinki. This is amazing.”
Motsunabe is the best.
Currently he’s been addicted to Japan motsunabe. “There are a lot of delicious food in Japan. But if I have to choose one, then motsunabe is. There’s also food like this in Korea, but Japanese’s has more simple taste. When I ate it in Japan for first time in Hakata, it was so delicious that even surprised me. Definitely perfect for my taste.
Everytime I went to eat in Hakata, it’s just like a melody: when being asked, ‘Do you want to eat motsunabe?’ I’ll answered. ‘of course. I want it so much!’”
