TVXQ “Ti Amo” [TRANS] Very touching epilogue by TVXQ in Ti Amo - Touching messages to each other!
Yunho: “It is the truth that when we shelved our dormitory lives and turned to trying out our respective single lives, instead of feeling sad, the relief was more palpable. However, it was not an easy thing to live a life of sleeping in your house and waking up without having somebody around. I had such thoughts many times, “Was Changmin’s existence / presence so huge?” When we did not have schedules, the text messages sent (by Yunho to Changmin) which read “Have you eaten?”, and the calls which went “Hyung, shall we have a drink?”, were really great. Just the fact of having the younger brother called Shim Changmin by my side, I like that.”
Changmin: “The day in 2011 when we went up on stage for the first time after becoming a duo, amidst the nervousness which was even more heightened than that when we debuted, the Yunho hyung who grasped hold of my hand, when I was just staring at the ground. And the Yunho hyung who had told me, “We can do it well”. Because hyung is here, I was able to hold out till now, because hyung is here, it seems like I will be able to attempt more challenges in the future. Because we are connected by the string called “TVXQ”, which will never be able to be severed.”
