The initially intimidating
' I tried to avoid Yunho back then." The friction between the duo reemerged when TVXQ band members Hero Jaejoong, Micky Yoochun, and Xiah Junsu left the group in 2010 over contract disputes with SM Entertainment and started the band JYJ, turning the five-piece into a duo, which it would remain."It felt different to interact with Yunho one-on-one, versus in a group situation," Changmin said."We had to accept and understand everything about each other.I couldn't understand why I had to be responsible for so many things. "We did fight a lot in the beginning, but in the end, it only made us closer friends," he said."Then Max Changmin, who played badminton before, joined the team all of a sudden.So I told him 'If you came here to play around, just quit now.'" Changmin admitted he was baffled by Yunho's attitude at the time."I thought he was strict to everyone younger than him, but he was really nice to Urban Zakapa's Kwon Sun Il and he was the same age as me," he said.
"[When Max Changmin first arrived at SM] was the time when teams were being formed for the team and many trainees would quit and leave," he explained.
They may now be one of K-pop's most dynamic duos, but there was a time when TVXQ singer Max Changmin claims he was terrified of his bandmate U-Know Yunho.
In an interview Tuesday on the South Korean cable talk show "Beatles Code 3D," Changmin recalled his initial fear of his future collaborator, which happened when they both were being groomed for stardom by their record label SM Entertainment.
