[Info + Trans] “I nearly became the 5th member of TVXQ”- Choi Myeong Seung

“I would have become the 5th member of TVXQ!”
So said Choi Myeung Seung, who starred in an MBC drama and started out as a member of an idol group. He was offered a place in TVXQ, but rejected it due to his parents’ objections.
In a recent interview, Choi revealed that, “I was offered a contract with SM Entertainment in early 2003 in my first year of high school, but I hesistated” and “I went into negotiating details with SM with my parents, and they were forming TVXQ at that time and the company was interested in recruiting me.”
At that time, SM Entertainment was planning to form TVXQ, who was expected to become a top notch group not only in Korea but also the rest of Asia. However, Choi did not accept the offer due to personal reasons. He then decided to “Work even harder to start [his] showbiz activities with a fresh new look” in order to attain [his] parents’ approval.”
He rejected a large company’s offer due to his dreams of wanting to be an actor, and “dreams of becoming an artist as great as TVXQ”.
