U-Know Yunho to Grace ‘GQ Japan’ Alongside Japan’s Legendary Figures
U-Know Yunho recently brushed shoulders with Japans’ living legends for a special Portrait of Leaders photo spread to be featured in the November issue of GQ Japan.
The singer, whom the magazine deemed ‘the leader of the greatest K-Pop idol group of this generation, TVXQ,’ was chosen as a cultural leader. The CEO of All About. Inc, Tetsuya Ebata, was selected as the business leader, while Olympic gold medalist swimmer Kosuke Kitajima was chosen as the leader in sports. The TVXQ leader donned a Dior Homme suit, while Kosuke Kitajima opted for Polo Ralph Lauren and Tetsuya Ebata looked stylish in Giorgio Armani.
“We wanted to dress the three leaders, who are in their 20s, 30s and 40s, in timeless and classy pieces,” revealed GQ. “TVXQ leader U-Know Yunho, in particular, is a top star not only in Korea, but in Japan and all of Asia. The friendly singer, who likes to enable those around him to shine, plays an important role not just in his group but within his agency as well.”
In the interview for the magazine, U-Know Yunho revealed, “Although I wear the Dior Homme brand frequently, I tend to suit up on special occasions, like when I’m meeting my parents. I feel like I look serious when I wear a suit, and my mannerisms change.”
In the meantime, you can catch U-Know Yunho on the KBS2 drama Poseidon, where he plays a charismatic maritime policeman.
