 Yunho's Early life

When he was in middle school, he and a few other friends formed the dance team A+, and they competed in various dance competitions around the country.[citation needed]After winning a prize at the 1st Annual SM Best Competition in 1999, Yunho signed with S.M. Entertainment and officially started his training in 2001.[citation needed]

[citation needed]In order to provide for himself while he trained in Seoul, Yunho took up various part-time jobs in the city, such as doing snow removal in the morning and working as a waiter at night.[citation needed]He spent most of his high school vacations in Seoul training, only returning to Gwangju for the school years.[citation needed]Sometime later, Yunho suffered a hormonal imbalance in his throat and underwent surgery, which affected his vocal cords. After losing his voice, Yunho considered giving up his training.

In 2002, Yunho was selected to be a backup dancer for Shinhwa and was chosen to be part of the project boy band Four Seasons, which consisted of fellow trainees Kim Jae-joong , Kim Hee-chul , and Kangin .[citation needed]The project group was dropped when Yunho and Jaejoong joined TVXQ in early 2003.

They performed their debut single "Hug", which became a hit in South Korea . TVXQ have been releasing number one albums in Korea since their second studio albumRising Sun(2005), which was also the album that gave the group their first Daesang (대상), or Grand Award, at the Mnet KM Music Festival . Their fourth Korean albumMirotic(2008) was the Album of the Year at the 2008 Mnet KM Music Festival and the 2008 Golden Disc Awards .

TVXQ was plunged into legal turmoil when members Jaejoong, Yoochun, and Junsu filed an injunction against their agency in July 2009.
