TVXQ’s Max Changmin confessed that he had suffered because of sasaeng fans.
During the episode of KBS2′s ‘Moonlight Prince’ that aired on the 5th, Max Changmin opened up and said that there was a time when he used to freak out when he saw students wearing their uniforms.
This was because of the hardcore fans who would follow him back to his house. Max Changmin confessed, “They could have just been students who happened to be in that area. But it was hard for me to deal with.”
Kang Ho Dong cautiously asked, “I heard that you received psychotherapy,” to which Max Changmin replied, “It was some light counseling.”
He continued to add, “I learned that psychological pain is harder to deal with than physical pain. It felt like everyone was staring at me, no matter where I went. I was a well-known person, but I felt like I had to avoid those people. It made me shut people out.”
Max Changmin was then asked, “Are you happy now?” and he replied, “Yes. I’m enjoying every moment that comes my way.”
Brave Brothers’ showed an understanding of Max Changmin’s situation. He confessed, “I had to receive treatment in my early 20s,” and “That was when I had just started my musical career, and I was having such a hard time. The diagnosis was that I was socially maladjusted.”
Meanwhile, Lee Bo Young appeared as the guest of the third episode of ‘Moonlight Prince’.
