i am a very new fan of sj. my bias is kyu and bias wreckers are eunhae! i just got obsessed and trying to learn everything about them, but its hard cause all facts in my language dont sound correct. can u help me? i read kh suffered a lot cause of lung surgery in 3rd year of college and i did math, that is 09, but i couldnt find it? also tumblr users said he is still scared when getting in cars and sorry to sj for his health like heechul, but i dont see a statement saying that? sorry for english

Oh my gosh, welcome to the fandom!! This is so exciting! Kyuhyun is the most precious maknae in all of kpop. If you’d like to learn more about the members, I have a small facts/personality list about them. 

I don’t remember him saying he is sorry to Super Junior for his health because thankfully, he is in good health. He may have been at the time when he was still recovering and couldn’t dance to the choreo and only appeared in songs when it was his time to sing. But after his recovered, he has been fine. Heechul is sorry for his health because the problem keeps coming back after a few years. His leg was okay in between but started hurting him again. It’s one of the reason SJ don’t do difficult choreo, so Heechul can join them too. <3 They shouldn’t be sorry about it though because it is not their fault. They were both in accidents. 

Kyuhyun was in life threatening condition after a car accident (2007) and had to get surgery. I have posted about it before, but I will also share below his own words from Strong Heart, where he talked about it on for the first time: 

Kyuhyun: “It was three years ago. At the time, I was a guest with Shindong, Leeteuk, and Eunhyuk on Kiss The Radio (Sukira). After we finished the radio program, we were on our way back to the dorms. I had my eyes closed and was listening to music.” [He was sitting in the back seat of the van.] “Then, all of a sudden I felt “koong…koong…kong” and the car was spinning. The car crashed and went “kwang…kwang…kwang”, spinning out of control. I lost consciousness (due to shock) and then gained it back. I was wondering what had happened. I saw the car far away and it was overturned. I realized that we were in a car accident.”

[Kyuhyun had flown out of the back window and landed far away from where the car finally stopped. He was 19 years old at the time and hospitalized under critical condition with great injuries to his pelvis and chest.] 

“At first I thought I need to get up, so I raised my body and was on my knees. All of a sudden, my eyes became blurry and my past was flashing before my eyes. From the time I entered elementary school to when I went on vacation with my family, and the first time I ever stood on the stage. In that moment I thought, “this is how I’m going to die”. But right then, Eunhyuk ran over to me and grabbed my hand. I was crying and praying to let me live. Eunhyuk started praying and crying with me.”

[Leeteuk spoke about his side of the story on Kiss The Radio. That day, he was sitting in the passenger seat but their manager in the back with Eunhyuk and Shindong, and Kyuhyun. The manager that was driving was not a good driver since he was new to the company. While they were driving, the van slipped in a few times. Then they got to a very slippery part of the road and the manager didn’t twist the wheel in the correct direction so the van went out of control. It spinned and screeched. The manager suddenly turned the wheel in the opposite direction to try and stop the spinning and the entire van flipped. Leeteuk’s face hit the window on the right side and he passed out. When he came to, he realized he couldn’t see from his other eye because his upper right eyelid was ripped and bleeding. He was barely able to move his body and started shouting for the other memebers to see if they were okay. Shindong and Eunhyuk replied, “Yes, hyung, I’m okay.” Luckly, at that time Junjin from Shinhwa was driving by and pulled over when he saw their van. Leeteuk, Shindong, and Eunhyuk got out of the car and he asked them where Kyuhyun was. They didn’t know so Leeteuk told Eunhyuk to go look for Kyuhyun (he was not seriously injured). But then they saw Kyuhyun lying on the ground far from the car. His body was thrown out the window since he was sitting at the far back. An ambulance arrived and tried to treat him since he was bleeding but he told them to go help Kyuhyun first. He waited with Shindong and Eunhyuk for another ambulance to come while they took Kyuhyun away to the hospital. Shindong and Eunhyuk had x-rays while Leeteuk was moved to surgery for his waist and eyes. Shindong’s back was scrapped from the glass when he was pulling himself out of the van.]

“I was in a come for 4 days and when I woke up, I was in the hospital. My ribs had broken and they pierced my lungs. The doctors gathered my family and the people from the company and told them, “this child is going to die soon if we do not drill a hole in his throat.” But, even with the surgery my chance of survival was around 20%. However my dad said, “this child is someone who loves to sing. He is a singer. How will he go on with his life and live after this?” The doctors said that my father was crazy. “Your son is about to die. How can something like singing be important right now? He must receive the operation right away!” He was unwilling to waver. In that situation, an older senior doctor said, “I will find another way to operate so that this child will be able to sing”. That is why I didn’t have my throat drilled and instead received another form of operation. But the reason why I cried a lot after having this told to me was because my father opposed me singing and becoming a singer. He said that it is just unheard of for a person to become a singer who is from a background of superintendents.”

“My father, who thought like that, was the one who protected my dreams. I cried a lot when I heard this. I was able to stand on stage after five months. From the start of my first come back on stage till the end, Super Junior fans and even those who weren’t my fans of Super Junior would cheer so loudly when it was my turn. [He couldn’t dance the choreo for a while due to the surgery and rehab but fans continued to encourage him.] I was very touched. I felt like I was living a new life. I am able to sing songs that I love. I am able to do activities with the members of Super Junior. I am able to meet my fans. I can walk, I can eat, I am just thankful for everything. I am still alive and living my life. I am extremely thankful to my father, who protected my dreams, and to Eunhyuk, who was the first one to come and pray for me.” You can read more about it here and here.

Hae: I am probably quite accurate when it comes to market analysis.

Super Junior D&E members Donghae and Eunhyuk discussed the growth of K-pop in a recent interview.

Donghae and Eunhyuk expressed excitement about their latest mini album that had been in the works since they were serving in the military.

Eunhyuk began with a shy laugh, “It’s embarrassing to do an interview like this. We came back as a unit for the first time in a while. We prepared for this album for a long time. Donghae and I matched up our breaks when we were in the military. We met up and talked about the album. We said we should continue with D&E’s unique colors while doing the music and performances that we wanted to do.”

Donghae said, “To be honest, our album was scheduled to be released in the winter, but the songs were good and we wanted to meet our fans sooner, so we insisted to our agency. That’s how we were able to release it at this time. I think it’ll be about two short weeks of promotions, but we’ll try to leave a strong impression.”

Donghae and Eunhyuk are now veterans in the industry in their 14th year since debut. Super Junior, who was one of first groups that experienced the rise of Hallyu, commented on watching the growth and change of this movement.

Eunhyuk said, “When I returned after being discharged from the military, Hallyu got so big to the point where it’s incomparable to how it was in the past. I liked that the scale got bigger, but more than anything, I was touched because it felt like a successful generational shift took place.”

He continued, “Seeing how Hallyu didn’t end with our generation but is continuing and growing, I feel proud that we played a role in it and that we came this far because we achieved something in the past. To be honest, we can’t always continue to be No. 1. It’s time for us to find a new path. That’s the way to do this for the long run.”

“I think Super Junior is always attempting new things,” added Donghae. “Recently, we are trying out the South American market. I want us to continue attempting to go for new markets and a variety of units. That is unrelated to age. If we have good content, good music, and good videos, then we can try new things at any time.”

Super Junior D&E released their second mini album “‘Bout You” and a title track of the same name on August 16.

Super Junior’s Donghae and Eunhyuk weren’t afraid to show their love for one another on “Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook“!

On the August 25 episode of the KBS music talk show, Super Junior D&E performed their new title track “‘Bout You,” as well as a rock remix of several iconic Super Junior hits. They also sat down for an interview to talk about their unit and the story of its creation.

When host Yoo Hee Yeol asked how the two bandmates had ended up in a duo together, Donghae replied, “When [Super Junior] holds a concert, the members each put on solo performances.” He then cracked up Yoo Hee Yeol by explaining, “I’m the type of person who gets lonely easily. So I felt lonely standing on stage all by myself.” When Yoo Hee Yeol responded with disbelief, Eunhyuk chimed in, “It’s true. Donghae is a very emotional person.”

Donghae continued, “So I told Eunhyuk that I thought it would be fun for us to put on a performance together. That’s how we ended up performing a duet [at our concert], and Lee Soo Man said, ‘The two of you look great together. Why don’t you promote together on television [as a duo]?’ So, starting in 2010, we prepared an album and even held our own concerts.”

Eunhyuk playfully added, “It all started with Donghae’s loneliness.” 

The two Super Junior members then talked about how they had been friends for 18 years. Yoo Hee Yeol asked them which qualities they most envied in each other, and Eunhyuk immediately replied, “Donghae is extremely handsome. In my opinion, according to my personal standards, I think he’s the best-looking idol out there.”

Donghae was unable to hide his joy as Eunhyuk went on, “Donghae got into SM Entertainment after winning Best Face in the SM Youth Best Contest.”

As for Eunhyuk, Donghae remarked that he was envious of his wit and his way with words, as well as his top-notch dancing skills.

[NEWS] Super Junior D&E Talks About Their Prou…

In a recent interview, Super Junior D&E discussed their proudest moments and making a comeback as a whole group.

First off, the duo relayed their apologies to their fans. Donghae said, “I feel sorry to our fans. We even think our activities in Korea are short. Because we have more overseas activities, our Korean fans feel sad. So I’m wondering what else we can give you.” Eunhyuk added, “Rather than being late because we were thinking about the direction of our album, it was because of military issues and Super Junior activities. We didn’t have enough time to prepare for Super Junior D&E. However, we filmed variety shows in order to make up for our short activities.”

The members then revealed their proudest moments. Donghae shared, “Our first concert is the most memorable. I thought I made the right choice by doing music. Music is content that has to capture a person’s heart in three minutes. I think I’m playing an important role by comforting someone with happiness or sadness.”

Eunhyuk also chose the concert as his proudest moment, saying, “I feel grateful during a concert because it makes me realize all the love I’m receiving. I always feel like I made the right choice by being in Super Junior. I feel that the most when I’m in the waiting room with my members. No team’s waiting room can be happier than ours. The most enjoyable time is when the members are together.”

The two members also talked about wanting a full group comeback. Eunhyuk commented, “Our members have gone to the army and been discharged one by one. We’ve only promoted as a full group for four out of ten years. Other than that, members have filled in for each other’s vacant spots. We want Kyuhyun to return soon so we can release an album as a full group.”

Donghae continued, “For our concerts, there are many versions for members to cover when another member is gone. There must be several hundred versions [total]. We want to promote as a full group as soon as possible.”

Super Junior D&E recently released their second mini album “‘Bout You” with the title track of the same name and concluded music show promotions with “Inkigayo” on August 26.
