This is an article published on piffania.com (Korean online web magazine).
You can find the original article here on its website. This article is very LONG, but we suggest that you read this when you get the chance. It provides a good overview of what all members of TVXQ – Jaejoong, Yunho, Yuchun, Junsu, Changmin – went through before their success in Japan.
As supplement information, we are adding TVXQ’s schedule on the last week of 2008. Yes, this is the infamous 2008 end of year schedule that even knocked out the fans who tried to follow TVXQ’s activities on TV and internet -_______-;;;
There are more evidences of TVXQ’s unreasonably hard and brutal schedules. Needless to say, these schedules were set in place by SM without consideration for artists’ health and/or personal circumstances. We have put together some of those together, but we are still in the process of translating some of them. Hopefully we can get those posted on the blog soon.
