TVXQ′s Max Changmin Says Badminton Changed Him
Max Changmin revealed that the secret behind his stamina is actually badminton.
TVXQ (DBSK) held a press conference for its TVXQ Live Tour 2013 Time on August 17, after performing 26 songs across three hours at the Nissan Stadium.
Max Changmin said, "I was really worried about my physical strength because at times during our dome tour I felt so tired I just wanted to lie down. I think I was able to build on my strength because I′ve been playing badminton for a show I appear in."
The singer has been appearing as a steady member of the KBS2 sports variety show Our Neighborhood′s Masters of Variety and Sports.
He added, "I think badminton is a great sport. It helped me become a new man. I really enjoyed the concert because I had strength left over."
U-know Yunho said about his own stamina, "I′ll be almost 30 years old (in Korean age) next year, considering how I was born in the beginning of the year. I feel like I′ve been trying to keep up. I don′t want to fall behind Changmin, and I don′t want to hear that I′m too old now."
He added, "I gave my best in heart more than body. Since we′re human, we pull out more strength we didn′t even realize was there if we′re really cheered on."
He then joked, "I think I′ll have to take up badminton too."
TVXQ concluded its dome tour with a set of concerts at Nissan Stadium from August 17-18.
