Zhi Shang Li He’s Kim Eunsung revealed that TVXQ were his role models.
The episode of MBC’s ‘Radio Star’ that aired on the 24th was titled ‘Oppa China Style’, and was graced by Ji Seokjin, Choi Sunggook, EXO’s Chen and Zhi Shang Li He’s Kim Eunsung.
Kim Eunsung, who is a member of China’s first boyband Zhi Shang Li He, stated, “We modelled ourselves after TVXQ. We even shot our music video in the same location, and each member had four letter names.”
He added, “I was supposed to be like TVXQ’s Max Changmin,” and “We gained a lot of anti-fans because we copied TVXQ.”
He continued to explain, “For our second album, we tried to change our style and express our own unique color. Though that helped reduce the number of anti-fans we had, we heard that we looked very outdated and out of style,” and “Though there are lots of systematized entertainment agencies in China these days, that wasn’t the situation eight years ago. We had to style ourselves so we always ended up looking outdated.”
