AceShowbiz - TVXQ's Changmin once got slapped by Super Junior's Kyuhyun and that shows how much they are close to each other. The 30-year-old singer shared hilarious footage of the rare and never-before-seen incident when making appearance on tvN's "Life Bar" on Thursday, March 15.
The "Scholar Who Walks the Night" star explained that it happened when he spent a night drinking with the "At Gwanghwamun" singer and SHINee's Minho. He said on the show, "While drinking with Minho and Kyuhyun, I got really sleepy so I told them I was going to sleep for 10 minutes. They said they were going to slap my cheek if I didn't wake up in 10 minutes."
When Changmin didn't wake up after 10 minutes, Kyuhyun and Minho kept their words. A video from their drunken night was then played on the show, showing Changmin who was deep in sleep on a couch. Kyuhyun tried to wake him up by slapping him in the face.
After the first attempt failed, Kyuhyun slapped Changmin once again. Changmin only opened his eyes after that. He made people burst into laughter as he slurred his words while replying to Kyuhyun's remark in the video.
In the said episode of "Life Bar", the guests talked about their drinking habits. EXO's Xiumin said, "I can follow others and drink as much as they do." He added, "But Kyuhyun's scary. He doesn't like to lose, so he just tries his best to stay up until the end, and he never stops drinking."
Changmin chimed in, "I exercise to drink and have delicious food."
Changmin and U-Know Yunho are gearing up for their comeback as TVXQ. The duo will be releasing their 8th full album on March 26 at 6 P.M. KST. The album will be their first one since they were discharged from military and since their special album "Rise as God" which was released in 2015.
They are also scheduled to perform at the Nissan Stadium in Nashville from June 8-10.
