On the October 2 episode of KBS 2TV’s “Happy Together 3,” Son Ho Joon mentioned how TVXQ’s Jung Yunho has helped him make his broadcast debut.
“It was from the time I knew Yunho that I started working in broadcasting. When I was acting in Gwangju, one of my juniors in the theater company introduced me to Yunho. At that time, Yunho was Dana‘s rapper. We were both striving (artists) at that time,” Son Ho Joon talked about how his friendship with Yunho began.

The first thing he said was, ‘Before hyung changes, the attitude of people around you changes (first),’ and told me to not be shaken and to be humble,” sharing how Jung Yunho has helped him further.
“Yunho was my savior until I became the actor Son Ho Joon,” he continued.
After Son Ho Joon’s touching revelation about his friend, a video message from Yunho was shown. In the video, Yunho sent his heartfelt message to his friend. “I admire hyung’s modesty and honesty. Knowing Ho Joon hyung’s passion for acting, I felt sad that he couldn’t move forward (with it). But I think he’s now progressing (with acting),” said Yunho, cheering his friend on.
Throughout the show, Son Ho Joon talked about his unchanging friendship with Jung Yunho. He added that he wouldn’t forget the help that Yunho has given him.
