He has participated in the release of 15 studio albums, 5 international tours, and 8 Japanese tours, all under the group name TVXQ. Yunho grew up in Gwangju, where in middle school he formed a dance team called "A+" with some friends. The team competed in various local competitions, and after winning SM's "Best Annual" competition in 1999, young Yunho signed with SM Entertainment and began training with the company in 2001. During his time as a trainee, Yunho worked odd jobs (including snow removal and waiting tables) in order to support himself while in Seoul, returning only to Gwangju for school. Before debuting with TVXQ, Yunho was placed into multiple project groups, including one called "Four Seasons," which included fellow SM trainees Jaejoong, Kangin, and Heechul. The group came close to debuting in 2003 before Yunho and Jaejoong were moved into TVXQ. Once the final lineup of TVXQ was established, Yunho debuted with the group in December of 2003. The group experienced a great deal of success in Korea and Japan before members Jaejoong, Yoochun, and Junsu left the group in 2009. Following an extended hiatus, Yunho and remaining member Changmin returned under the name TVXQ as a duo in 2011, reclaiming their position as top idols in the music industry. Yunho has also actively pursued a career as an actor, taking parts in the Korean dramas "Banjun Theater" (2005), "Heading to the Ground" (2009), "Poseidon" (2011), "King of Ambition" (2013), and "The Night Watchman's Journal" (2014).
