Anonymous asked: o: aw, how can you say yunho is over w/ SM? has he expressed discomfort recently or smt? (tho I agree Changmin would follow him 'till the end of the world)
I actually got 2 messages asking me about this, so I guess I’ll just answer both in this one.
Yunho hasn’t said anything outright, but a lot of fans (sasaengs) think he’s ready to leave the company because of how he’s acted over the past year or so.
- SME was against his participation in Queen of Ambition and wanted him in a SM drama but he agreed to it behind SME’s back before they had the chance to make anything official.
- His 2 week disappearance to Japan last year—nobody knew where he was. Not sasaengs, not his managers, not the company.
- His lack of solo activities in general (Yunho has always been the go-to for variety appearances and it makes very little sense that SM isn’t pushing him as much as possible before he enlists)
- Apparently he’s been pushing back at SM/his managers more and more whenever he can (which is where the lack of personal schedules comes in), especially when it comes to hanging out with JYJ (which he does do). I think I read somewhere??? that he was not happy w/ SM trying to use TVXQ to get back at JYJ and he ended up raising hell at the office and put a stop to it :c
Obviously none of this is really certain or even confirmed in the least, but keeping stuff like this in the back of your mind while you really watch and pay attention to him and how he acts kind of makes some things make sense? Ever since the lawsuit happened, I’ve never gotten the sense that he was as dedicated to the company as SM tried to make it seem, so I think at this point he’s just waiting for their contract to end so he can buy TVXQ’s name and stuff from SME and move on.
I spoke to two different people last night who don’t know each other at all, and both of them told me that they believe that what we’re seeing now (on both sides of the split) is the groundwork for a reunion in the near future and I agree. I don’t think it’s a happy coincidence that the three of us came to the same conclusion at different points in time with different levels of fandom involvement. Obviously we’re all seeing the same things, which means that something must be happening.
