[Trans] 110803 PD Of ‘Kiss&Cry’ Says, “It’s A Shame That U-Know Yunho And Claudia Had To Withdraw”

The U-Know Yunho-Claudia couple have decided to withdraw from the SBS variety show ‘Kim Yuna’s Kiss&Cry’.

PD Kim Jae Hyuk of ‘Kiss&Cry’ stated on the 3rd that, “U-Know Yunho and Claudia will be withdrawing from the competition,” and “Out of all the participating figure skaters, Claudia is currently the only active skater as a backup national athlete and will begin training from early August.”

He continued to add, “Claudia will also be competing at the Junior Grand Prix prematch which will be held at Taereung in early August. Her scheduled activities will overlap. What an active skater needs more than anything is practice and competitions. That is why she decided to withdraw.”

This meant that the two didn’t participate in the filming of the fifth round that was held on the 2nd. They will replace their scheduled performance with an interview regarding their withdrawal for the episode that will air on the 7th.

PD Kim stated, “Initially, ‘Kiss&Cry’ was scheduled to end at the end of July,” and “However, the World Figure Skating Championships, which Kim Yuna was listed to perform in, was delayed a month due to the earthquake in Japan. Therefore, ‘Kiss&Cry’ was delayed a month as well. We’ve been continuously trying to adjust the schedule but it wasn’t an easy task. It’s a shame.”

He also added, “U-Know Yunho is also feeling extremely sad about it,” and “It would have been nice if U-Know Yunho and Claudia could have stayed with us till the end, but they have had to unfortunately withdraw and it’s a real shame. Though the program is important, training is more important to an active skater like Claudia. We ask for our viewers to understand their situation.”

During the practice of falling, I should fall first and then allowing Claudia to drop safely.

Translation 110630 U-Know Yunho Say’s “I Skated In The Streets Of Europe For Kiss & Cry”

[Trans] 110630 U-Know Yunho Says, “I Skated In The Streets Of Europe For Kiss&Cry”

Why was U-Know Yunho clenching his teeth?

In the second pair competition of ‘Kiss&Cry’ that was held at the SBS Ilsan Production Center on June 21st, U-Know Yunho signaled an extravagant revival with a charismatic performance.

Because of his recent concert schedule in Europe, U-Know Yunho has not been able to practice his skating for a period of time. This meant that his partner Claudia had to attend the mid-week assessment alone, causing fans to worry about his future stance in the competition.

The worry was heightened by the fact that U-Know Yunho placed 8th out of ten teams in the first competition due to the mistakes he made while performing.

But U-Know Yunho partook in the second competition and had the ‘Rose Evaluators’ fired up with his extravagant dancing and b-boying skills.

After his performance, U-Know Yunho said, “I’ve never been so worried about a competition as I was for this one. But I rehearsed my part on the ground because I didn’t have access to a skating rink, and I had faith in my partner Claudia.” During his stay in Europe, U-Know Yunho took every minute of spare time he had to put on his skates and rehearse his routine, whether he was in his hotel or on the streets.

His partner Claudia was moved when she heard how hard U-Know Yunho worked to find time to rehearse.

News 110612 Yunho Expresses His Disappointment On ‘Kiss & Cry’

[News] 110612 Yunho expresses his disappointment on ‘Kiss & Cry’

TVXQ’s Yunho expressed his disappointment in falling during his pair-skating performance.

On the June 12th broadcast of SBS’s “Kim Yuna’s Kiss & Cry“, Yunho and his skating partner, Claudia Mueller, gave a pair-skating performance from the musical “Grease“.

In the last episode, Yunho, who placed 1st during the first singles performance, was unable to practice much for the pair-skating performance because of his overseas schedule. Because of this, he gave a sluggish performance during the half-way evaluation.

Yunho revealed, “I was so shocked during the half-way evaluation that I wondered if I would be able to stand on stage. We have a performance, but I just came back from abroad today.”

The two skaters were much more in sync during the actual performance, but because of the lack of practice time, Yunho did make some mistakes.

The experts stated that Yunho’s skating was good, but that they were disappointed by his mistakes. Skater Kim Yuna stated, “Your spiral was good, but I was a little disappointed in the speed.” Singer Kim Jang Hoon commented, “I liked that you didn’t get flustered when you fell and got back up.”

Meanwhile, the pair received a score of 33.7 for their performance.

Watch Yunho’s performance below!

News 110606 Yunho’s Busy Schedule Affects His Performance on “Kiss & Cry”

[News] 110606 Yunho’s Busy Schedule Affects His Performance on “Kiss & Cry”

Yunho. Sometimes demands to perform are larger than life, and your work ethic shows. You are doing your best under pressure and I believe that you will continue to do your best whatever the outcome. That is what is important. Love you. Momma Cha

You Can Do This Yunho!!

After coming away with a win on the pilot episode of ”Kiss & Cry“, TVXQ’s Yunho seems to be struggling to keep his title due to his overwhelming schedule.

The show’s June 5th episode focused on the stars’ preparations for their performances. Throughout his training period, Yunho kept apologizing to his partner, Claudia Mueller. Because of TVXQ’s upcoming world tour and Japanese promotions, the two had only two days to train.

Even with the two days, Yunho could only train in the early morning, which was difficult for Mueller, who’s a student in junior high school. She commented, “We’d train from midnight until two or three in the morning, so it was very tiring.”

The lack of preparations showed in the way their steps would tangle. Yunho fell over while holding Mueller up and continued to fall during all of the spins and spirals required for their performance. Instead of expressing frustration, however, Yunho seemed more apologetic towards Mueller and had a difficult time holding up his head in front of her.

Judge Kim Yuna commented, “In ice dancing, the man must throw himself on the floor if he has to in order to protect the woman from a fall. It’s harder for couples than singles when there isn’t enough practice. It didn’t really live up to my expectations.”

In the following interview, Yunho said, “I think I felt too safe because I had won our opening show. I am most apologetic towards my dongseng, Claudia Mueller.”

Check out whether Yunho manages to overcome the obstacles on June 12th!
