The singer was a guest on the November 24 broadcast of SBS PowerFM’s “Two O’Clock Escape Cultwo Show,” when he received a message from one of the show’s listeners. The listener said, “I witnessed Kyuhyun eating with his older sister at their local go-to restaurant. As she is pretty, I mistook her for Kyuhyun’s girlfriend, but Kyuhyun emphasized the fact that she is his sister.”
Kyuhyun explained, “There is a certain restaurant that me and my older sister frequently visit. As my sister is pretty, people constantly stare at her. Because of that, I deliberately ask her ‘My older sister, would you like to order more?’ or talk about our mom,” and evoked laughter with his strategical actions meant to prevent any misunderstandings about their relationship.
Other celebrities participating in the radio show were Lim Chang Jung, Jomi, and actor Jo Jae Yoon.

About how well-received the song was, Kyuhyun commented, “I think many people want to listen to ballads during the fall, over dance or hip-hop songs. Just like how you want to listen to something sweet in spring, and upbeat songs in the summer. The season definitely helped.”
He also showed his enthusiasm for another solo album. “I’m really looking forward to it,” he said, “I’m going to start collecting songs soon. This album took a while to prepare. I want to slowly start preparing now. I want another solo album before I’m 30. That’s my goal.”

The drama is about an unlucky young girl, Goo Hae Ra, who has a difficult time getting signed to an agency, as she dreams of having her father′s posthumous work be revealed to the world. She and a set of twin brothers, Kang Sae Jong and Kang Sae Chan, attempt to join Superstar K2 to follow their dreams.

Henry, whose musical genius has been acknowledged by the public, will be playing an adorable character similar to himself, also named Henry.

In charge of the music drama, Kim Yong Bum PD stated, “It took awhile to gather talented musicians in one place. We′ve revealed Jinyoung and Henry, who are breaking stereotypes about idols, and Yu Seong Eun and Park Kwang Seon, who both have powerful voices, as the first line up of actors for the drama. As we′ve poured our hearts and souls to gather this amazing group, we′ll continue to work hard to create great music and a moving story for this music drama.”

Male group Super Junior members Kyuhyun and Eunhyuk have opened up about the noticeable generation gap between the older and younger members of their group.
The two recently participated in the filming of JTBC’s talk show “Abnormal Summit.”
Communication as their discussion topic, the Super Junior members decided to share their experience with the panel members. Eunhyuk revealed, “We actually have a larger generation gap between our own group members than between us and junior singers.”
Kyuhyun added, “Although Heechul is only four years older than me, our taste in music is completely different. When I say I like a singer that debuted a long time ago, I am referring to Yada [debuted in 1999], but Heechul talks about K2 [debuted in 1988].”
Hearing this, MC Jeon Hyun Moo said, “Isn’t Yada an old singer too? I was totally surprised to hear you mention Yada,” and made everyone laugh with his comment.
This episode will air on November 17 at 11 p.m.
Making a solo debut, ‘Super Junior’ Kyuhyun talked about his strengths.
Kyuhyu’s fall mini-concert <At Gwanghwamun> was held at Yes24 Move Hall located in Mapogu, Seoul on November 13 to commemorate Kyuhyun’s solo album release. 200 fans attend the event and Kyuhyun sang live his title track ‘At Gwanghwamun’ and other songs including ‘Eternal Sunshine’, ‘My Thoughts, Your Memories’, ‘One Confession’, and ‘Flying, Deep in the Night’ and broke up the whole crowd.
During the press conference followed by the mini-concert, Kyuhyun was asked why he is the first member among ‘Super Junior’ to make a solo debut and he answered “My good boy image and high personal profile built through my appearances on variety shows were the main forces behind my solo debut. Some song writers who are close to me even offered me songs even before I asked them.”
He added “The biggest reason for my solo debut is because Lee Soo Man director told me ‘It’s about time for Kyuhyun to debut as a solo’. He first talked about it while we had team dinner and made a joke saying ‘I’ll make you SM’s Lee Gwang Jo’. From then on, my nickname has become Jo Gwang Jo. After seven years, my solo album is finally released.”
He was also asked about his opinion on the nickname ‘the Prince of ballad’ and he answered “I think that’s Sung Si Kyung sunbaenim’s nickname. Just call me ‘Prince’s younger brother’” and made people laugh.
Lee Teuk from ‘Super Junior’ who also attended this event said “Let’s just call Kyuhyun as ‘Ballad’s hwangtae (translated ‘dried pollack’)” and kept the event amused.
Meanwhile, Kyuhyun’s solo title track ‘At Gwanghwamun’ is a ballad song accompanying Kyuhyun’s soft voice with monologue-like lyrics that metaphorically compares saying goodbye to his love to changes in season. Kyuhyun will begin song promotions through KBS2 <Music Bank> on November 14.
‘Super Junior’ Kyuhyun wore ‘the first solo’ armband with the support of Super Junior members.

While talking about his latest whereabouts with MC Moon Ji Ae, he was asked “Any jealousy from other members toward your solo debut?” and he answered “That’s why I’ve been keeping it a secret while preparing for the album for two years.”
He added “I thought all members would be jealous of me, but Ye Sung hyung called me and congratulated me. I think Kang In was on the booze and he said ‘Don’t look down on me even if your album goes well off’ and Hee Chul who is in Japan and other members in London sent me streaming selfie showing their support”. Kyuhyun seemed to be surprised by members’ loyalty.
He continued “We do group chat in mobile messenger and members kept sending me cheering messages such as ‘I love you Kyuhyun’, ‘Good job our youngest member’. I took them wrong” and shyly smiled.
