When recording TVXQ’s debut single ‘Hug’, Choikang Changmin had something else to worry about other than work. His grandmother, who doted on him the most, was ill at that period of time. Apart from giving his best in his career, he kept worrying about his grandmother’s condition. Changmin had even hurt his vocals during that period of time, due to him practicing their songs hard. But he persevered and finished the recording. ~cassiopeiasg.com
An aquarius born in 1988, his blood type is B. Is greedy when it comes to music, so sometimes cries when he isn't satisfied with his singing. Because his parents are teachers, he is also very competitive and tries very hard at schoolwork and reading. Though the youngest in the group, he is the most modest and has the deepest thoughts. Can be honest and blunt when he strongly believes that something should not be done. Though shy at first, he is a very bright boy when you get to know him well. Followed his friend to an SM contest and luckily won the Best Singer award.
ChoiKang Changmin, whose high note is outstanding
The youngest of our group Choikang Changmin is a crybaby. When his singing goes wrong he cries. But he has a brave side to him too. Starting from elementary school in 6th grade, he delivered newspapers as a part-time job. Changmin is the eldest in the family and youngest in the group but noone can complete against his singing. His high note is so outstanding that he doesn't know what octave it goes up to. He says that hes worries that if he knows it might interrupt his singing. Changmin is a quiet person and doesn't talk very much. In an interview, he only says 2 or 3 things in the end. Changmin is a clear person who reads the Harry Potter Series and tells everyone about it. He particpated in a singing contest and won an award. That led him to be a singer but before that he was regular student.
