TVXQ’s U-know Yunho recently looked back at his old audition and trainee videos.
On the SBS special “Determination: 10,000 Hours” which aired on February 16, EXO’s Kai, SHINee’s Taemin, and TVXQ’s Yunho were featured as K-Pop’s hardest working artists/dancers, and we took a look into their secrets for success.
On the show, Yunho reminisced about his old trainee days, watching some old practice and audition videos. He said, looking at his younger self and laughing, “His eyes look like he’s about ready to eat someone up.” As if talking about someone completely different, he said, “He really tried hard. He tried hard, for sure, but…” Watching an old dance video, Yunho continued, still laughing, “I was really bad… I was worse than I thought.”
“It was like meeting my younger self; I feel proud, and at the same time a little emotional, too.”
Yunho also talked about how he was awarded a prize for the ‘hardest worker,’ chosen by his fellow trainees at SM, for which he received a CD player. He said, “I practiced with it so much I eventually had to use a rubber band to hold it together.”
