His never-say-die attitude

Yunho went through a lot prior to his debut with TVXQ!. From having to juggle part-time jobs while he was still a trainee to undergoing surgery that affected his vocal chords, there were numerous obstacles in his way even before he stepped onto the stage.

At the age of 17, he was finally confirmed as the leader of the then-quintet TVXQ! and the rest, as they say, is history.

From the very beginning, Yunho was the leader of the group and has been dedicated to his position before, during and after the quintet’s much publicised split. He’s been known as one of K-Pop’s most quintessential leaders for his understanding, calmness and focused nature.

He is also the unofficial guardian and spokesperson for the group who has done his best to preserve TVXQ!’s positive image and bring the group to greater heights.

From the funky Champagne to charismatic dance battles and hilarious gag routines, Yunho nails them all. Known as one of the best dancers in the biz, he was also CSJH Dana and Shinhwa’s backup dancer prior to his debut.

What’s better than a good-looking guy? A good-looker who’s good with kids, of course. Yunho, who has been dubbed a kid magnet, has shown that he’s good with children on multiple occasions. While we’ll probably never know how he appeals to people of all ages, his ability to charm children might be because a little part of him is on the same wavelength as them – he’s confessed on KBS’s Hello that he talks to his stuffed animals when he’s troubled.

Acting, musicals and more – Yunho does them all. During the group’s indefinite hiatus following JYJ’s (Jaejoong, Yoochun and Junsu) departure, he made his official acting debut in 2009 drama Heading to the Ground.

Following which, he also started his musical career with the much-loved story, Goong (Princess Hours). His last web drama before his enlistment, I Order You, was hailed as a success for being the second drama after EXO Next Door to hit 10 million views. Speaking of being multi-talented…

Apart from the many talents he has while in the spotlight, Yunho also works hard behind the scenes. He has written numerous songs for himself, TVXQ! and Tohoshinki (what TXVQ! Is known in Japan), Super Junior and even SM Town (the artistes under their label, S.M. Entertainment). 

Taking part in numerous parts of the production process, some of the many feathers in his hat include being involved in writing the lyrics, rap, music and producing tunes such as ‘Wrong Number’, ‘Heartquake’ and ‘Snow Dream’.

In a well-known incident, Yunho was rushed to the hospital after consuming a drink that was spiked with super glue. Despite being sick to the point of being hospitalised, he reportedly asked the police to not press charges against the anti-fan who did this to him.
