Time flies when you’re having fun – especially when you’re part of one of the biggest groups of all time.
TVXQ celebrated their ninth anniversary this week, and delighted fans by posting hand-written letters on their official SMTOWN message board.
Yunho, 26, and Changmin, 24, expressed gratitude and joy to their ‘Cassiopeia’ fan base using cute emoticons and characters.
“Wow, it’s finally our 9th anniversary!” wrote Yunho. “The precious memories that we built up together… Let’s be together from now on as well.”
In a separate note, Changmin added: “I’m always thankful to everyone. Let’s protect each other and be happy from now on.”
No mention was made of former members Kim JaeJoong, Xia Junsu or Micky Yoochun, who formed the group JYJ in 2010.
Last month, three-year legal battle between the JYJ members and TVXQ’s management company SM Entertainment finally came to an end, with both sides agreeing to drop any claims and stop interfering in each other’s actions.
When the group first spit in to two, Changmin expressed his sorrow at the situation, and why he, along with Junho, felt the need to keep TVXQ going.
He said last year: “We thought we needed to protect TVXQ’s name. When a swarm of geese prepare to migrate, they never forget to make the correct formation. I don’t think it’s right when a few of the geese who chose to break away still considered themselves as part of the flock.”
Hopefully time will be a healer…
