On the show, Yunho stated,
“While I was in middle school, my family went through a tough period. One day, while I was in bed, my father left the house at 4 a.m. After some observation, I realized that this was quickly became a daily occurrence. He came home at 9 p.m. and left at 4 a.m. without fail. Misunderstanding the situation, I told my mother about it and she said that he wasn’t that type of person.
Thinking that I needed solid evidence, I followed him one day. I wore a hooded tee and sunglasses and even had a camera ready. I believed that I would have to reveal the truth no matter what. My father took a taxi instead of a car so I thought that maybe he really was doing what I had suspected.
He went into a building that I had never seen before. I felt that it was a bit too risky to follow him in so I decided to wait for him outside. He came back out carrying a lot of newspapers. It turned out that he was delivering newspapers every morning.
He used to do a lot of work as an executive, but later the situation changed so he became an assistant for another person. The important thing is that my mother also did not know about this.
It was shocking news. I thought that if I succeeded, I would have to take care of my father, my mother, and my family.
My mother’s situation was even more shocking. I only found this out less than a month ago. My mother had increased in weight despite exercising for 7 to 8 years. It turned out that she hadn’t actually been exercising, but had been working at a factory.
Even now my parents are working hard. My parents believe that they shouldn’t use their children’s money like their own. Because I felt so sorry about that, I bought them an apartment as a present to them. I also recently traded in my father’s old car for a brand new one.”
Yunho revealed that he wanted to be a good son to his parents who went through such trying times in the past for the family.
Why did Super Junior’s Leeteuk apologize to TVXQ’s Yunho?
On the latest episode of “Strong Heart”, Super Junior’s Leeteuk decided to ‘fess up to some of his misdeeds against TVXQ’s Yunho.
Leeteuk began by asking Yunho, “When TVXQ was promoting ‘Hug’, wasn’t there a time when you woke up in the morning and your thigh hurt because it had a bruise?”
Surprised, Yunho confirmed that this was true, which led Leeteuk to continue, “I caused that bruise. Yunho is the type who can fall asleep as soon as he closes his eyes. At the beginning of my debut, TVXQ, Super Junior, and even our managers lived together in one apartment. All 22 of us lived in a place that was only about 1,000 square feet. Usually everyone just sleeps, but one time I was walking around and I accidentally kneed Yunho’s thigh. He woke up a bit because it hurt, but then he went back to sleep saying that it was okay.”
The audience laughed, but Leeteuk wasn’t quite done yet. He said, “I sincerely love you, and there’s one more thing…”
“Before his debut, Yunho started saving money in a 5 gallon water bottle. The money was accumulating nicely at first, but at some point, didn’t you say that the amount stopped increasing? I’m sorry. I had no choice. It turns out that with twelve people living together, there’s rarely anything to eat. The younger members would say they are hungry, but what money does a trainee have? At first, I only took out about 50 cents and bought them chips, but slowly the bottle started to drain…”
After admitting his secrets, Leeteuk sincerely apologized to Yunho for the things he had done in the past.
