Soon after the announcement that Super Junior member Choi Siwon has been confirmed to star in the upcoming MBC drama “She Was Pretty,” an exclusive report by Ilgan Sports has revealed that he is planning to begin his military service later this year, with “She Was Pretty” possibly being his last project.
A broadcast insider is reported to have said, “Choi Siwon is preparing to enlist in the army during the second half of this year, although the exact time frame has not been decided yet. He has a healthy body and has always expressed his strong willingness to serve as an active duty soldier.”
The source continued, “Siwon will work hard and wrap up the MBC Wednesday-Thursday drama ‘She Was Pretty,’ which begins airing in September, before enlisting.”
If his enlistment is confirmed, this will make Siwon the seventh member of Super Junior to carry out his military service.
Are you sad to hear this news?
On July 30, a representative of SM Entertainment responded to the reports of Siwon’s possible enlistment: “Nothing has been confirmed yet. We are currently coordinating the time frame. At this time, filming for the drama ‘She Was Pretty” is more important. Once the production ends, a more definite plan [for enlistment] will be set.”
Super Junior is totally confident in their much-anticipated new song “Devil“!
At their “Super Show 6” encore concert in Seoul on July 11 and 12, the group unveiled their new track “Devil” while rocking some bright and colorful suits.
After their performance on July 12, leader Leeteuk said, “‘Sorry Sorry’ is the song that introduced Super Junior to the world. I think it’s time for our group’s representative song to change. ‘Devil’ is going to be that song now.”
Heechul added, “We’ve tried a lot of new things. Everything’s been great up to now, but this time I think it’ll be even better. Look forward to it.”
“We’ve been working hard for ten years now,” said Donghae. “I’m glad that this time Yesung is joining us. I’m curious about what your reactions were to the song.”
Super Junior’s tenth anniversary special album “Devil” will be released on July 16 at midnight.

Super Junior-M‘s Henry attempts to tackle a difficult piece on the violin in July 4′s episode of the tvN variety show “Always Cantare.” He works with a teacher to help him with a particularly hard part, but when he struggles with it he begins to look upset. He eventually stops playing and it’s clear that he’s started to cry.
“To be honest, when I was young I had an upsetting experience,” he explains in an interview. He says that when he was a kid, he spent a few months living at his violin teacher’s home. His teacher would sit next to him while he was playing and criticize him. “I know they were doing it all for me,” he says, “but when I was practicing earlier I suddenly thought about that time.”
His teacher sympathizes with him, telling him that she too had a scary teacher when she was a kid that used to make her really nervous. He eventually gets a handle on the difficult part, and takes a big sigh of relief and exhaustion.
In his interview, he talks a bit about his reputation as a musical genius. “Lately, some people around me call me a genius,” he says. “But I’m definitely not. When I was young, I practiced really, really hard. I don’t really think there’s such thing as a genius.”
Lastly, he adds with a smile, “And I’m still not that great, anyway.”
You can see Henry practicing with celebrity and non-celebrity musicians as an orchestra under maestro Geum Nan Sae every Saturday on “Always Cantare.”

Super Junior‘s Kim Heechul lamented that he would really like to date.
During a recent filming for Olive TV‘s “MAPS” he also revealed that his heart flutters for non-celebrity women more than celebrities.
Kim Heechul and Simon D. travel to Jeju Island for a trip. Driving slowly, Kim Heechul is finally able to enjoy the beautiful views of the island and he comments, “When I get a girlfriend, I should definitely come here again.”
At this, Simon D. jokes, “Who would date you?” but Kim Heechul continues on, “I would really like a girlfriend. Not just having a close female friend but I’d really like to experience the thing called ‘love.’”
In an individual interview afterwards, he says, “I am still an idol and I have a lot of young female fans, so it’s not easy for me to say that I would like a girlfriend on broadcast, but I’m not the age to be thinking about things like that. Even the fans say that they want me to find a good girlfriend.” He then confesses, “There are also female celebrities like Son Dam Bi or Taeyeon, but I don’t really feel nervous around female celebrities. I get nervous around non-celebrity women who I see just walking down the street.”
Meanwhile, “MAPS” is a program that asks celebrities to drive slower than 40 km/h through an area, allowing them to enjoy the scenery that they haven’t been able to appreciate in their busy lives.

On June 24, a representative from SM Entertainment told TV Report, “Super Junior is currently preparing their new album. An exact release date has not been decided yet. This album will include Yesung.”
Apparently, Super Junior plans to start promoting after Girls’ Generation makes their comeback. Super Junior last promoted as a group about 11 months ago in August 2014 with their seventh full album “Mamacita.” Since then the members have been busy with many activities including acting, variety shows, and solo albums.
This year marks the tenth anniversary of Super Junior’s debut, thus this album carries special meaning to the group. They debuted in 2005 with their first album “Super Junior 05.” After releasing many hit songs, the group maintains their popularity into their tenth year as a group.
‘KARA’ Heo Young-ji chose ‘Super Junior-M’ Zhou Mi as one of the roommates she wants to live with.
On the 17th, KARA appeared on SBS Power FM <Lee Gook-joo’s Young Street> and showed off their eloquence.
DJ Lee Gook-joo and Heo Young-ji co-starred on a variety show <Roommate 2> and the DJ asked the singer, “If <Roommate> launches a new season, who do you want to live with?”. Other KARA members asked her to exclude members from the previous episode.
Heo Young-ji hesitated for a moment and said, “I want to live with Lee Soon-jae and Kim Soo-mi” and her answer surprised us. She said, “I admire them so much and if there’s a chance, I would like to live with them”
She also mentioned ‘Lovelyz’ Mi Joo, Park Jin-young and ‘Super Junior-M’ Zhou Mi as her dream roommates. Lee Gook-joo asked her whether she is close with Zhou Mi and she answered, “We co-hosted a music show in the past and we exchanged our numbers”
Han Seung-yeon seemed surprised to hear it and said, “You two were in a special relationship. We didn’t even know that” and Lee Gook-joo teasingly said, “It takes time for people to open their heart” and asked her to send a voice message to Zhou Mi.
Shyly, she said, “Thanks for keeping eyes on me when he hosted the show. If we get a chance to be in the same show, plead look fondly of me.”
Meanwhile, <Lee Gook-joo’s Young Street> broadcasts everyday from 8:00 to 10pm through 107.7Mhz SBS Power FM.
