TVXQ’s Yunho managed to wow the audience with his suave “Summer Night” performance with partner Claudia Mueller, but a bonus, unaired clip from SBS’s “Kiss and Cry” showed that Yunho had actually performed with a severe leg injury.
In the unseen clip, which aired after the June 19th episode, Yunho was interviewed about his competition performance. “I had a previous leg injury from another concert,” he revealed. “My leg was ripped and swollen but I want to enjoy the stage without thinking about it.”
Meanwhile, his partner, professional figure skater Claudia Mueller, expressed her admiration for Yunho’s dedication. “Yunho oppa was much more handsome and self-assured on the stage, compared to the rehearsals,” she said.
Yunho and Mueller’s team scored a combined total of 40.1 for the first round, landing them in 8th place for the time being. The total scores from both the first and second rounds will be averaged, with the lowest-scoring team being eliminated from the competition.
