TVXQ’s Yunho Names EXO’s Chanyeol As SM’s Hidden “Passion” Successor

Follow your passion!

TVXQ’s Yunho appeared on MBC’s Radio Star on January 23 and shared his unbelievably passionate stories on air.

He also shared how he feels about the SM’s “Passionate Group”, which includes TVXQ’s Yunho, SHINEE’s Minho, and EXO’s Suho. When the MCs asked him about how he perceives Minho and Suho, Yunho explained, “Those two are more serious than passionate.”

Then he revealed, the true hidden passion successor of SM is EXO’s Chanyeol.

“Chanyeol digs really deep when he finds something he likes. Everybody has a smile when they are ‘in the zone’ and I saw that smile on Chanyeol when he was bowling. I could feel his passion through that.”


According to Yunho, Super Junior’s Siwon is also a part of “Passionate Group” but they are all passionate about different criteria.

“They say when four of us are together, even our president, Lee Soo-man, walks around to avoid us. Siwon always talks about protecting the environment and loves shaking people’s hands. I like to talk about cultures and suggest ideas for change. Minho talks about relationships with people, but Suho is a listener who creates conversation strategies to make things more interesting.”


He added, “I don’t know why it’s so much fun to talk to them, but there is a certain charm to our passionate conversations”
