On the 13 Mar episode of KBS 2TV talkshow ‘Win Win’, Shinhwa members made candid confessions about having work done on their faces before. When the members were asked if they are naturally good-looking, only Eric, Lee Minwoo and Andy replied in the affirmative.
Junjin said, “When we were with SM Entertainment, I received a present (referring to plastic surgery) in my final year of high school”, while Dongwan said, “The tip of my nose was out of shape so I underwent a procedure.” Shin Hyesung said there was some element of coercion in his case. “I couldn’t turn down the proposal made by the company.”
The members also shared their opinions on dating publicly. MC Lee Kikwang asked, “Which members were dating during the period of time when you were active as a group?” The members admitted that they all were dating at one point or another.
In particular, Junjin, Lee Minwoo and Eric had previously made their relationships public, and they shared their thoughts on whether idols should make their relationships public. Eric answered with a firm ‘No’ when the members asked for his opinion, and Junjin felt that, “If marriage is not on the cards, I was thinking, why should it be made public?”
Eric added, “There are cases when there’s no choice except to make it public. I feel that it will cause the girl a lot of hurt if the relationship doesn’t work out eventually.”
Kim Dongwan then said, “People won’t be interested even if we were dating now”, lifting the solemn atmosphere. He added that he was dating someone for 3 years, “but we broke up because we started to hate each other.”
