Part1: 4 Members from Super Junior’s Pleasant Conversation
external image 1103401SJMSNinterview-003.jpg
When idol group, Super Junior appeared in 2005, people particularly took notice of the number of members. It was because the group had whopping 13 members when other groups only had 5 or 6 members. The number was so big that a simple act of traveling to a concert venue was no joke.

6 years later, using quantity as their strategy, they qualitatively became successful. Although Kibum, Hangeng and Kangin left the group decreasing the number of members, the group became the top idol group with their hit songs “Sorry Sorry” and “Miinah.” Also, because of their individual and unit activities, they became more recognized. Among the members, leader Leeteuk, the oldest Kim Heechul, talented live singer Yesung and a comic Shindong are especially thriving working on TV shows and radio programs. Coincidently, these four are working at 3 broadcasting companies during prime time. It shows that they have been recognized for their talents in “chatting.”
I met these four last Sunday afternoon at a fusion restaurant in Chungdamdong, Seoul. They said it was their first time in a long time to be together in one place. Considering their respective preference, each mixed their regular soju with strawberry cocktail soju. They made a toast and had a comfortable conversation. Being the top idol and the new generation of MCs who will follow in the steps of Kang Hodong and Yoo Jaesuk, they revealed many stories.

▶Kim Heechul-a serious drinker, Shindong-a beer aficionado, Leeteuk, Yesung- can’t drink a lot
- How much do you normally drink?
Leeteuk: Me. A half bottle of soju. I can’t drink a lot. If I drink too much, I have to see what I ate that day.
Kim Heechul: I just drink a lot. (laughs) I drank until dawn yesterday too. I’m close with Beast’s Yong Joonhyung. I ate dinner with him.
Yesung: I can’t drink a lot either. I can take a half bottle of soju.
Shindong: I can drink a bottle and half of soju. But I like beer better than soju. Beer goes best with chicken. I guess I like beer, because I take after my mother. (laughs)
HC: Shindong’s parents own a beer store in Ilsan. SD: That’s correct. But if I talk about that, won’t people say something, because I’m advertising it?” (laughs)

▶Radio DJ, everyday from 8PM until 2AM of next day. 6 hours of “Suju time”
- All four of you are radio DJs. If you were to evaluate each other.
LT: Heechul is unconstrained. He’s so free that a person might question whether he can be like that. But I think it’s also his strength.
HC: Teuki is a veteran with 5 years of experience. He hosts his program smoothly and comfortably.
LT: Yesung is hosting the program with me. He’s adjusting to it quickly.
YS: Even though it’s been only a month hosting this radio program, I think the times when I hosted a DMB program is helping me. Of course, it was burdensome at first.
HC: Shindong hosts his radio program using his festival voice. I think he’s made for radio.
- I guess then everyday from 8PM for 6 hours is “Suju time.”
LT: I guess so. But I think the time between 10 and 12 is the gold time frame. (laughs)
- Did you ever make a mistake?
SD: I once fell asleep while hosting that I could have caused a broadcast accident. One time, I was so tired that I was dozing off and talking in my sleep. I had to say to the listeners, “I’ll give you pizza as a present.” I thought of a bow that I saw in my dream, so I said, “I’ll give you a bow.” Fortunately, no one caught it and I moved on. (laughs)
HC: I often make the mistake of switching the singer’s name with the song title. I had to say Sunye’s “Maybe,” but I said Maybee’s “Sunye” instead. (laughs)
LT: Previously, when I hosted the program with Eunhyuk, we burst out laughing, because of English pronunciation. It was Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the U.S.A.,” but we read U.S.A. as Yuja. It was because we were rushing. We were sweating. (laughs)
-Was there a memorable guest?
HC: Recently, Jewelry came as guests. The new member Kim Yewon was so cute. So, I hosted the program that day with an ulterior motive. (laughs)

▶The new generation of MC? Leeteuk=Yoo Jaesuk, Kim Heechul= Kim Gura, Shindong= Kang Hodong, Yesung=Suju’s pillar.
- What do you think about people labeling you as the new generation of MCs after Kang Hodong and Yoo Jaesuk?
LT: We are unworthy. As of now, we are far from it. But I talked to Boom who is going to be discharged from the army about this. We said we should work hard for the next 10 years so that we can become like the sunbaes.
- Who do you think resembles Yoo Jaesuk?
HC: It’s Teuk. I think that’s why he works well with Kang Hodong sunbae.
- Then who has Kang Hodong’s style?
LT: It’s Shindong.
- Then Heechul is?
SD: Heechul hyung is Kim gura and Shin Dongyup mixed together. Because even if he says biting remarks, people don’t despise him anymore. (laughs)
- Only Yesung’s left.
YS: I want to do well too. But I think my role is still singing.
In unison, Leeteuk, Kim Heechul and Shindong all agreed and nodded their heads. They said Yesung has one of the greatest live singing ability among idol groups. Also, they revealed a secret. That majority of Suju’s main songs are made with Yesung’s voice as the foundation.
*There are two other parts to the interview.

4 Members of Suju “Demand that the manager Hyung Punish them”

▶A teamwork of 6 years. The secret to longevity is? The memory of trainee days of being punished.
- Since you received the Golden Disk Award 2 years ago, I guess you reminiscent about the old days.
LT: I can’t talk about it enough. When I think about that time, I still laugh. One time, Kangin and I conspired together to discipline the dongsaengs. But Yesung who’s serious stood up first. He reflected on himself and said, “it’s mostly my fault.” So the situation became funny. (laughs)
YS: Teuk hyung’s nickname was “My room Teuk.” Whenever we would do a concert overseas, after a concert ends, he would always call the members to his hotel room and build up the teamwork.
SD: There’s probably no other idol group like us. When we did something wrong, we would punish ourselves. We even demanded that the manager hyungs punish us.

- There was a huge aftereffect when Hangeng and Kangin left.
LT: That’s the really unfortunate part. Especially with Kangin, we can’t contact each other. So it’s really sad. At first, I thought a person can make a mistake. But when he did it for the second time, truthfully, I felt upset.

- Hangeng’s comment about the members avoiding his call came out explicitly.
LT: Although there could be a misunderstanding, I couldn’t take the fact the members felt troubled by it. So I wrote on my Twitter. There was a sense of responsibility on me as the leader to do something for the rest of the members.
A relationship that has both love and hatred goes more long way. Because of that, unbeknownst to some people, among Korean idol groups, Suju is becoming the oldest group. They have already worked longer than HOT, Sechskies and god. It’s only a matter of time before they surpass Shinhwa as the oldest group.
▶Yesung, I hope I get to appear on “I am a Singer…”
-Lately, MBC’s “I am a Singer” is receiving overwhelming attention…
SD: I was surprised by the idea to gather all those great singer sunbaenims in one place.
HC: I really loved it, because I got to hear old songs. Actually, when we watch “Inkigayo,” we ask who that new singer is. It’s unfortunate that many of attractions have disappeared.
LT: The program was created after “Enjoy Today” was canceled, which I appeared in. So (feeling hurt) I watched 1 Night 2 Days or Running Man which air at the same time slot. (laughs) But I heard about it later and became a diehard fan. I thought it would have been better if the first place graduated instead of the last place being eliminated.
YS: I often meet Yoon Dohyun sunbaenim, because we are neighbors. When I saw him appearing on the program, I felt nervous and jealous. If there’s an opportunity later on, I want to appear on the program.
▶What about marriage? “When I’m 35 or older,” Moon Geunyoung has been Yesung’s ideal girl for 10 years
- Now, aren’t you worried about the army and marriage?
LT: Of course. I contemplate a lot about the army issue. I don’t know yet, but personally, I think I’ll go at the end of the year or at the beginning of next year. But I thought about this. Since we are of similar age, it would be okay to enter the army at the same time…
- What about dating and marriage?
HC: It’s not like I haven’t dated before. But I don’t have a girlfriend right now. Most of my relationships didn’t last over 3 months. I think I’ll get married around 33 to 35. Also, I’ve said this numerous times before, but I’m also considering international marriage.
- Leeteuk had a scandal with Kim Yu-Na…
LT: I’ve said this many time before, but people are still talking about it. I’m saying this again now. I feel sorry for whatever reason that Kim Yu-Na was harmed because of me. I’ve never met her after the school uniform CF. Also, Yesung first requested her to become a minihompy ilchon.
- Then you are not meeting anyone?
LT: People have misunderstandings about me. When I don’t have anything to do, I stay in my room. I go online. (laughs) I think I’ll probably get married around 35 to 37.
- Shindong already has someone he wants to marry. What about you, Yesung?
YS: My ideal girl has been Moon Geunyoung for 10 years. (laughs)
- Lastly, when will we get to see the 5th album?
I think the soonest would be in the summer.
That day, Kim Heechul, Shindong and the reporter had 6 bottles of regular soju together for 4 hours. Because of these four “eloquent speakers,” there was no end to the conversation. But the one thing that was clear was that Super Junior has grown and evolved. A thought crossed my mind that I may not see these people at the same time 10 years later. I suppressed my urge to have another drink with them and promised to meet them another time. They brightly smiled and said, “it was really a fun interview.”

Yesung: A black hat, a Japanese manga One Piece, an Ipod, Two pairs of jeans that he bought at the day of the interview
When the four of them received the examination paper, they put their heads together and thought of the answers. At first, they were somewhat confused. They incorrectly said the answer to the 11th question was statute of limitations and then correctly changed it to probation. They spent some time to come up the correct answer for the 17th question which was India.
Because there were four of them, they demonstrated their knowledge by getting the idioms right. On the 13th question which asked who the president of children is, Leeteuk joked that the president of children is Leeteuk. Regrettably, they missed the 18th question and received the total score of 95 points. They have scored the highest yet along with the last interviewee Kang Sooyeon.
