1. [+4,197, -63] Over half of the members have served… but there are still more left ㅠㅠ
2. [+3,482, -429] For all of the scandals they commit, they’re a group that at least serves on time… I’ve been seeing Kangin around a lot lately too and it seems he’s gotten a lot witter with his words ㅋㅋㅋ Choi Shiwon’s acting is pretty good too. Hopefully SuJu as a group does well after all of them finish their services.
3. [+2,741, -212] There’s not really much to learn when serving is a duty and you don’t have a choice in it. I don’t want to go ㅋㅋ
4. [+1,987, -186] Good things should be learned… just serving in the army makes you a good person.
5. [+432, -9] What the article is saying idols should learn from is not their enlistment but the fact that Super Junior isn’t afraid of the hiatus and promote actively leading up to and after their service because they trust their fans to be there for them when they come back. I have a friend who’s a SuJu fan and she’s been waiting for them in the army for 5 years… loyal to the promoting members and sometimes writes letters to the members serving.
6. [+405, -17] They have 4 in active duty, 2 in police, and 2 in public service so why do some comments make it sound like they have a ton in public service and not many in active duty ㅋㅋ and the ones who did do public service like Heechul was exempt because he has a huge metal rod in his leg and Yesung had a kidney stone.
7. [+387, -22] It’s really hard to manage the timing for service rotations. SuJu has been pulling it off well.
8. [+374, -18] There are tons of groups who are putting it off so why rag on SuJu? All of them aer serving, that’s deserving of some good comments. Didn’t they also have a huge car accident before too? But none of them are avoiding it or putting it off and are all serving. Hopefully this group lasts long…
Super Junior member Choi Siwon is thanking his fans for helping push viewer ratings for his new drama She Was Pretty past the 10% share mark.
The latest two episodes for the drama, episodes 5 and 6, which aired on September 30 and October 1, respectively, gained more than 10% viewer ratings based on TNmS and AGB data.
Viewer ratings have been climbing steadily from the 7-8% viewer ratings in the first three so episodes.
Siwon thanked fans with a special shout-out on his Instagram.
“‘She was beautiful’ has continuously received high viewer ratings, and recorded 10 percent last night! Thank you so much for all :)” said the idol on October 1.
She Was Pretty currently airs on the Korean broadcasting station MBC on Wednesdays and Thursdays at the 21:55 time slot. It is scheduled to finish airing in November.
Siwon co-stars in the romantic comedy series as the quirky features editor with a mysterious background, and becomes fast buddies with the female lead character, a fashion magazine assistant played by Hwang Jung Eum. Park Seo Joon and Go Jun Hee round out the headliner cast.
Siwon has been drawing rave reviews from fans for his lively and funny portrayal of his character. Siwon is not a stranger to acting, having been cast in a flurry of movie and drama roles in the past year. This year, in particular, he has racked up acting credits in China.
But the critical and popular success of She Was Pretty is a bittersweet moment for fans given the knowledge that this will be the last acting project for Siwon before he enlists in the military later in the year.
Super Junior‘s Kyuhyun‘s first series of solo concerts is coming up in November, and tickets went on sale on October 1. Like the solo concerts of his labelmates Taeyeon of Girls’ Generation and Jonghyun of SHINee, tickets sold out quickly and are now being resold at exorbitant prices online by scalpers.
In response, Kyuhyun tweeted on October 2, “It would be good if you do not buy tickets that are being sold at a premium. If you’re an E.L.F, if you’re a Kyuhyun fan.. if you come like that I don’t think you’ll be happy.. I won’t be happy either….”
He adds, “There will be a lot of time in the future for me to have concerts^^ Don’t worry.”
SM Entertainment previously stated that they will cancel all tickets for these upcoming concerts that are reported to have been sold by scalpers for an unfair profit.
Kyuhyun’s concerts will be taking place at SMTOWN Theatre from November 6 to 8 and 13 to 15.
Super Junior-M′s Zhoumi has been confirmed for Korean-Chinese drama Best Lover (working title).
Zhoumi′s agency, SM Entertainment, stated to Newsen on October 1, “Zhoumi′s casting in Best Lover has been confirmed.”
Earlier today, one media outlet reported that Zhoumi has been cast as the male lead to star opposite Lee Da Hae in Best Love. According to the report, Best Lover is a Korean-Chinese joint production being produced by China′s largest global company Alibaba. Zhoumi star as the male lead.
Meanwhile, Zhoumi made his debut in the Chinese Super Junior unit group Super Junior-M in 2008 and is the current MC of SBS MTV′s The Show, dividing his time between China and Korea. Zhoumi has also been active as an actor in dramas like GTV′s When Love Walked In and CCTV′s Melody of Youth.
She Was Pretty has doubled in viewer ratings in just five episodes.
On the fifth episode of MBC′s She Was Pretty, which aired on September 30, Hwang Jung Eum′s identity as Park Seo Joon′s first love was on the cusp of being exposed.
Hwang Jung Eum discovers Park Seo Joon in the rain, suffering from a panic attack caused by a past traumatic event, and while attempting to calm him down, Park Seo Joon recalls memories of his first love.
The fifth episode recorded 10.7 percent (Nielsen Korea) in viewer ratings, which is double the ratings the first episode recorded.
In last night′s episode, Kim Hye Jin (Hwang Jung Eum) discovers Ji Sung Joon (Park Seo Joon) soaked from the rain and shaking on the street from a panic attack. She gets off the bus and rushes over to Sung Joon, and remembering the trauma he suffers from rainy days, takes off her hoodie to cover him.
Hye Jin then looks into Sung Joon′s panicked eyes and tries to calm him down, saying “Look over here. Nothing′s going to happen. It′s okay..It′s okay..” Sung Joon then sees flashes of the Hye Jin from his childhood through the Hye Jin in front of him, leaving viewers to wonder if he realizes the truth about Hye Jin′s identity.
Viewers responded with comments like ′Hwang Jung Eum, are you finally getting into love mode? Looking forward to it!′ ′Did he finally recognize the real Hye Jin, his first love? So curious!′ ′Hwang Jung Eum, her appearance may have changed, but her heart is the same, so he′s going to figure it out soon!′ and ′Totally had a heart attack when Hye Jin and Sung Joon made eye contact.′
Meanwhile, episode six of MBC′s She Was Pretty airs tonight at 10 p.m. KST.
On the evening of September 23, Super Junior‘s Choi Siwon delighted fans with his own personal live broadcast on Naver’s V app to promote his new MBCdrama “She Was Pretty.”
With a laptop sitting in front of him, he reads fan questions and responds to their requests with no shortage of his famous hilarious expressions and reactions.
At first he’s overwhelmed by the number of emoticons in the chat room so he decides to simply talk to his fans. “How have you been? I’ve really missed you. The month after next, I’ll be leaving for a bit to fulfill my military duty. Since I’ve been doing my duty as a taxpayer and a worker, I’ll have to say goodbye for a bit to do my military duty now,” he says with a chuckle. Choi Siwon will be enlisting in the army on November 19 for his mandatory two-year service.
“A lot of people are talking about my beard though,” he says as he reads the comments. He explains that his character in “She Was Pretty” is a bit of a free spirit and only shaves when he feels like it. After he reads some more comments, he says to the viewers, “You say my beard is strange?” He looks straight into the camera and tilts his head cutely. “Why? Is it strange?” he says with a laugh, and tells fans to tell the writer how they feel.
When asked who the “atmosphere maker” on set is, he laughs to himself and confidently replies, “It’s me.” A lot of fans request that he perform his dance toMichael Jackson‘s famous song “Billie Jean” from the show. He gets up from the chair and explains it’s not actually Michael Jackson’s dance, he’s just grooving along with the song. “I’m grateful that you all like it so much,” he says.
A fan asks him to show off a bit of a “Hollywood action” acting technique. He pretends to be thinking about it and then suddenly gasps and jumps back in his chair, doing a hilarious overreaction to someone’s comment that simply said he was handsome. “That sort of thing is ‘Hollywood action,’” he explains, and then points at the crew. “Everyone here was shocked!”
Someone says, “Just smile for us,” and Choi Siwon replies, “I am smiling! With the beard that all of you like so much. Smile!” Later on he tells a fan, “Sometimes I don’t like my beard either.”
When asked if he’s got a girlfriend, Choi Siwon says, “I’m single. If there’s someone good out there for me, I hope she’ll appear in front of me. Right now!” As he wraps up, he gives fans some tiny hearts with his fingers and a kiss through the camera.
Watch the whole show here:
You can watch Choi Siwon every Wednesday and Thursday on MBC’s “You Are Pretty.”
