Jung Yunho is sitting alone in his room. He dresses up in a red shirt with dashing black coat and jeans. His face has light makeup on, and his hair is neatly done.
He, together with his bandmates, will leave mansion to have a photo shoot for a magazine in a few minutes, but Yunho doesn’t care about that right now. He fixes his eye on the screen.

“Hyung!” This must be their maknae, Choikang Changmin. Yunho ignored his call.
“However, many think that this might be the sign of Yoon Eunhye’s comeback as a singer.

Knock! Knock! Knock! Knock!
2 youngest boys still don’t give up, they are continually knocking and calling their leader’s name.
“Hyung! come out already, we are–“
The annoying knocking suddenly turned into a loud bang.
“Yah, Jung Yunho! What are you doing? We are going to be late for the photo shoot because of you” The eldest AKA. The mom of the house is yelling at the other side of the door. He guesses he can’t ignore this one.
“Hyung, hurry up! They’re waiting” Changmin shouted.
“Yunho-ah, get out of there, will you?” Yoochun gently called him.
“Aishhh… these guys really…”
“Leader-shi!!!” Junsu yelled
“I’m coming!” He furiously turns off the TV. (“…doing many magazine photo shoots and CFs during her on screen hiatus…”)
Yunho walks out of his room. His band mates are looking at him suspiciously.
“Hyung, what are you doing so long in there?” Xiah asked curiously.
“Watching news” He answered.
“News? When did you start watching news, Yunho? I only see you watching movies” Micky said while fixing his hair in front of the mirror for the last time.
“Yah, I do watch some!” Yunho scolded back. Yoochun chuckled a little to the mirror.
“Boys, we need to go now” Their manager called from the front door.
“Neh~” They all rushed to the door.
“Hyung, is it true that Eunhye nuna signs a contract with SM” Yunho asked his manager. Kang Bo Sok nods his head
“So she’ll work with us right?” Yoochun asked from the front.
In the van, next to the driver is Micky is in the passenger seat, then their manager and U-know are at the next row, while the other three are sitting in the back.
“I guess, but Lee Soo Man sanseng-nim still hasn’t said anything. So I’m not sure” he answered.
“I thought she’s going to concentrate on her acting, if she sign with SM, isn’t that mean she’ll come back to her singing career?” Jaejoong said, brooding.
SM Entertainment may have many great bands and gain a lot success, but it hasn’t successfully branched out to the acting world yet.
“Just concern about that later, you guys have a photo shoot to do now” Bo Sok told the boys as the van parked in front of a big studio.
