Super Junior’s Eunhyuk and Donghae Channel James Dean for The Star, Share Their Definition of Youth – From 141219December 25, 2014 at 10:22 am | Posted in Donghae, Eunhyuk, Interviews, Magazine, News/Rumors, Pictures/Videos, Wonderboys | Leave a comment
Super Junior members Eunhyuk and Donghae shared their definition of youth.
On December 19, star and style magazine The Star revealed a pictorial featuring Donghae and Eunhyuk.
The two bandmates channeled iconic heartthrob James Dean for the photoshoot. Sporting pompadour hairdos reminiscent of the 1950s and leather and jean jackets, Donghae and Eunhyuk ooze charisma and iconoclasm. In subtle gestures and glances, like the hand Eunhyuk places over his mouth on the cover photo, the two idols embody the restlessness and rebelliousness of youth, which James Dean has become synonymous with. This is the first time that just the two of them have been featured together for a magazine cover.
During the interview, Donghae and Eunhyuk, who were both born in 1986, shared their definition of youth, “Youth is constantly, ceaselessly having things that you want to do. And it is the determination to accomplish those things. [We] want to live without being calculative, without having complicated thoughts. The more thoughts you have the more fear you have, and it takes you longer to make a decision.”
You can catch Donghae and Eunhyuk’s spread as well as the the full interview in the January issue of The Star.
1. I’m handsome. (X)
I’m not handsome. Thinking of it, I don’t have such a charm. I have many likes and dislikes (regarding my face). There are many who tell me I’m handsome (laughs), but when I see (my face) I see many flaws. I get wrinkles. In our team, Eunhyuk is in the lower rank for visuals but he definitely is charming. I just have the cool mindset of managing myself well (laughs). I’m kind of sloppy.
2. My body is better than my face. (O)
My body is originally not nice. My pelvis is narrow(?) and my abs are wrong(?). I work very hard to exercise. My face also (put in effort). Haha.
3. I am good-natured (O)
4. I get jealous a lot. (X)
5. I’m a morning person (X)
I was a morning person up till 2 months ago, waking up at 5~6am. Now, weirdly it becomes hard to wake up.
6. The plans you make succeed (O)
7. I’m good in studying. (What to do if I’m not good? Um. X)
Until 3rd year of middle school, I was #3~4 in class. So when I wrote that I want my future career to be celebrity, my teacher was against it. When I was a trainee, my grades dropped a lot. Whenever my grades fall, I think it’s better for me to be trainee (Laughs). I was especially good in korean language and social studies. I cannot understand math no matter what.
8. I read many books (X)
9. I prefer melodramatic to action movies (X)
10. I like sexy girls more than cute girls. (What to do if I like both? I can’t choose)
11. When I see girl I like, I make the first movie. (Recently, a bit O)
Last time when I see someone I like, I also only think “what should I do” . But recently I put in effort to try talking first. I want to date.
12. I look at girls a lot. (X)
I don’t personally call to communicate. I just date, I don’t know if this is bad. We just naturally break up. Ah, is this worse? (Laughs) Until now, I’m more interested in work. At first, it was because I was busy so people understood but now they don’t.
13. I want to return to my 20s. (X)
14. I want to quickly get married. (X)
15. I recently have a “some” (X)
tn: “some” in korean means like more than friends but not bf/gf
Gwanghwamun is a place where lovers’ memories are contained in it…. It also treasures the time flow. That is why Lee Moon Sae’s ‘Gwanghwamun Love Song’ could be created. Also another ballad singer sings about Gwanghwamun calmly and lonely… He is ‘SuperJunior’s Kyuhyun.
Please forget about splendid idol Kyuhyun, since Kyuhyun is just a ballad singer. Someone said that he’s the next generation’s ballad singer that would continue Sung Si Kyung. Could anyone have imagined ‘SuperJunior’ Kyuhyun and ‘Radio Star’ Kyuhyun sing traditional ballad song that well~?
We came up with this thought of wouldn’t Kyuhyun have had hard times since he took his first step as a ballad singer since it’s not easy to break the prejudice toward an idol. Besides, Kyuhyun has a title as entertainer. He would’ve also got intimidated by the comeback news of Toy and Park Hyo Shin.
It seems like he has made great effort. Maybe practicing would’ve been the only thing to survive since there is nothing to gain without effort. When we listen to ‘At Gwanghwamun’, we fall into Kyuhyun’s voice without noticing since he sings neatly without any techniques. We cannot imagine how much he had practiced until he could sound like this vocal.
He wasn’t poor at anything. We understood why everyone says that singer is told by songs and actor is told by acting skills. What did Kyuhyun want to say through ‘At Gwanghwamun’? It wouldn’t be just the common farewell story of lovers. He would’ve wanted to tell his growth within it. What do you think, Kyuhyun?
‘At Gwanghwamun’ is a song which I prepared secretly without letting members know for 2 years. It was the work of releasing solo album among ‘SuperJunior’ members for the first time. I was nervous and felt uncomfortable. I couldn’t release the solo album even though I finished the first recording since many affairs overlapped. So I waited for the time.
I also got angry. I planned to act solo in 2007. It came out in about 7 years. I worked in group and entertainment programs in the meanwhile. I started entertainment in order to act in solo since people don’t listen to songs when the artist doesn’t have profile. So I decided to sing after promoting my name.
The problem was at controlling my conditions. I ran out of energy with SuperJunior’s album activities, world tours, entertainment programs, and musical performances. It was really hard to regain my energies. Voice that I wanted didn’t come out when I did recording. So I prepared the solo album by abstaining from drinking for a month.
The reason why I could make sad voice is thanks to my experience of love. Fans would not like this but I believe one cannot sing being a solo since birth. One has to love and also break up. But I don’t have much experience of love sadly. So I asked for writing the lyrics to my best friend, TVXQ!’s MAX.
Composer Kenzie made up for parts where I was not good at and insufficient. I thank Kenzie the most at this work. Actually, ‘At Gwanghwamun’ was a song that was planned to be given to SuperJunior’s ballad unit, ‘K.R.Y’. But I gaped after it. Kenzie who knew my passion than anyone else accepted my request without hesitation. Oh, Yiruma also gave a big help.
Today is Wednesday, the day of Golden Fishery Radio Star broadcast which is observed by Kyuhyun is aired~!!
Also 12 am of tonight (Wednesday) is the time for Kyuhyun that has started to attack ladies’ heart with honey-like vocal cords and sweet voice to release first solo album ‘At Gwanghwamun’ and start earnest solo album activities~!!
So we have prepared interview of sensitive ballad singer, Kyuhyun done by Golden Fishery Radio Star’s MC, Kyuhyun that is met through STARCAST. Meet the exciting interview of Kyuhyun who has greatly acted two roles deep from his heart now! : )
(*We notice that this interview is a content projected by formalizing entertainment program, ‘Golden Fishery Radio Star’ but unrelated with the program.)
▷Golden Fishery Radio Star MC, Kyuhyun: Before starting the interview, let’s watch the MV teaser image of Kyuhyun’s solo album title song, ‘At Gwanghwamun’ which was released today morning.
▷Golden Fishery Radio Star MC, Kyuhyun: Ah.. it arouses expectation only by watching the MV teaser. Finally, your solo album is going to be released tonight at 12 o’clock. The title is… ‘At Gwanghwamun’. Why is it ‘At Gwanghwamun’ among so many places?
▶ Sensitive ballad singer, Kyuhyun: It’s a dating course which many lovers come by since a long time ago. So I thought there would be many people that remember their memories at Gwanghwamun which matches well with this autumn weather. Thus Gwanghwamun, which is a place of such memories, is chosen as the title song material.
