TVXQ’s Choikang Changmin has stated that, “I don’t want my wife to be over the age of 30 when I marry her.”

tvN’s ‘On Location Talk Show: Taxi’ will be airing the first episode of ‘NEW Taxi’ with TVXQ as their guest stars. The episode is set to show TVXQ’s Myeongdong outing that paralyzed the streets with fans, as well as the members’ open-minded feelings about dating and marriage, amongst other things.

U-Know Yunho drew the attention of many when he said, “If I were to start dating, I want it to be behind closed doors,” and “I want to get married by the time I’m 32.” Choikang Changmin, on the other hand, stated, “I don’t want my wife to be over the age of 30 when I marry her.” When asked why by MC Lee Young Ja, Choikang Changmin had everyone cracking up in laughter as he replied, “Because it’ll be hard for her to have a baby at that age.”

They are planning to openly talk about the difficulties they faced during their 2 year and 3 month absence from Kpop. TVXQ even visited MyeongDong and Eewa Women’s college and spent time with their fans there. There was even a fun challenge where U-Know Yunho and Choikang Changmin had to buy a present with just 10,000 KRW that would surprise and touch the hearts of their girlfriends.

110411 IU’s 3-Level Expression, Max Changmin Became Shy

Singer IU shows off a ‘3-level expression’ after her ‘3-level octave’, impressing TVXQ’s Max Changmin.

In the April 10 broadcast of SBS ‘Heroes’, the cast took wedding pictures with TVXQ’s U-Know Yunho and Max Changmin.

During the broadcast, MC Noh Hong Chul asked Max Changmin before the actual wedding photoshoot, “Which Heroes member do you most want to complete this photoshoot with?” and upon hearing IU’s name, Changmin gave a surprised expression, sending a secret signal to Yunho at the same time. Although Changmin expressed that “I was only shocked (upon hearing her name)”, one could see his inner feelings when he exchanged glances with IU.

The cast and TVXQ had to look into each other’s eyes as part of the process of choosing their partners (for the photoshoot). Max Changmin was composed when he looked into the eyes of Seo In Young, Kahi and Shin Bong Sun, but shyly lowered his head in front of IU. IU sent a ‘3-level expression’ to Changmin using her bright eyes, causing Changmin to be unable to look her in the eye. He finally looked down shyly, arousing laughter from everyone.

Therefore TVXQ is expected to perform their new song ‘Know This (Before You Go)’ in MBC ‘Show! Music Core’ with the revised lyrics version, meanwhile for the rest KBS 2TV ‘Music Bank’ and SBS ‘Inkigayo’, the group will sing the original lyrics. TVXQ has finished the pre-recording of their debut performance of ‘Know This (Before You Go) original version at KBS 2TV ‘Music Bank’ on today the 18th.
