DBSK‘s Changmin explained the reason for having his own personal coach while practicing for “Our Neighborhood Variety Sports.

On August 14, the press conference for the variety show was held on the badminton courts at the KBS Sports World building. During the press conference, Changmin commented, “I am currently preparing for DBSK’s Japanese tour.”

He continued, “It’s true that I don’t have a lot of free time. I asked my agency and they introduced me to a Japanese coach and so I am practicing,” and “I am learning from the coach as well as Japan’s national team members. It is a big help,” regarding the show’s badminton challenge.

Changmin added, “I’m also in a position where I have no choice to practice,” and “I chose to receive lessons so I could practice whenever I have time.”

“Our Neighborhood Variety Sports” first aired in April with cast members Kang Ho Dong, Lee Soo Geun, Changmin, Lee Man Ki and Jo Dal Hwan. For its badminton special, guests such as Lee Jong Soo, Lee Ji Hoon, John Park, BIGSTAR‘s Feel Dog and 2PM‘s Chansung have joined as well.
