As you all probably know by now, Donghae and Eunhyuk were the eighth andninth members of Super Junior to depart for their mandatory military service. As contact with trainees is restricted, the two members each wrote letters to let fans know how they’re doing and sent them to SM Entertainment, who then uploaded the letters to the official Super Junior homepage.
Fans are permitted to write and send letters to the members while they’re in training camp; however, packages and envelopes larger than the standard letter size are prohibited and can result in the trainees being punished.
Check out the heartfelt letters below.
Hello! This is Super Junior’s Donghae. Now I’m Recruit Lee Donghae who is fulfilling my military duty. ^^ The weather got really cold, huh? You haven’t caught a cold or anything, right?? Because you’ve always been right there beside us, now that we’ve been separated I already miss you a lot!! I miss the stage, and I miss the members, and I miss ELF.
I enlisted on my birthday, October 15, 2015, and it’s already October 21. On the day I enlisted I participated in a farewell march, and my heart hurt seeing so many ELF who come to see me off crying so hard. I thought that, time needs to pass quickly so I can quickly return to everyone’s side. I’ve also been doing well, and using the army goods that ELF sent me. I’m also really thankful for the Internet letters that everyone sends everyday, and enjoy reading them. Whenever I’m feeling tired, I’ll take those letters out and read them and cheer up.
I’ve always talked a lot with ELF, whether we met at fan meetings, concerts, or fan signs. For now even though we have to save up all the things we want to talk about, after July 14, 2017 we can take all those conversations we saved and stay up all night sharing them. ^^ I really enjoy writing letters. ^^ From now on I’ll write letters to ELF often!! It seems that I’m always saying I’m thankful for ELF and that I love ELF, but those words became even more meaningful since I came here so I want to say them even more!! I regret not saying it enough when I was at your side!! When we meet again, let’s say these words and express [these feelings] to each other more often ^^ Got it?
Now Shindong-hyung, Sungmin-hyung, Eunhyuk, and I have already enlisted and Siwon will be enlisting later, and we will all come back a healthier, more handsome men. So ELF! Please wait for Super Junior! Please give the members who are at your side right now lots of love and take care of them! :) I already am looking forward to 2019 and 2018!! Haha. Leeteuk, Heechul,Yesung, Kangin, Shindong, Sungmin, Eunhyuk, Siwon, Ryeowook, Kyuhyun, I love you, my members! I love ELF too :) Don’t get sick! And be healthy!
3:10 p.m. KST October 21, 2015. Recruit Training Center, Recruit Lee Donghae
I’m ever thankful and I love you <3″
“To My Beloved E.L.F.,
Ten-hut! This is trainee number 216, Lee Hyukjae. Is everyone keeping healthy? Here at the 15th Division Recruit Training Center in Hwacheon, Gangwon Province, I’m eating well, sleeping well, pooping well, and doing well. There’s no need to worry. I can do well no matter where I am. I just miss my members and all of my fans a lot. It’s a little difficult here, but I’ll believe that everyone is doing well and focus on my training.
Do I feel awkward and distant because the way I’m talking is so stiff and formal? Truth is, I actually could write less formally, but I’m going to continue writing like this because it’s cooler to sound more like a soldier. But why hasn’t anyone else shaved their heads? Why am I the only one who’s bald? I’m really disappointed. Didn’t we have a deal? Why aren’t you granting my wish? Do you hate me?
Anyway, since I’ve gone you don’t have a guy to meet for a year and nine months you have no one you need to look good for, so why haven’t you shaved your heads yet? Even if you shave your heads you’ll all still be pretty!!!! I’ll keep this in mind for the rest of my life. Since you all have taken care of me so well up to this point, I’ll stop at this.
Everyone! Please take good care of the members while I’m gone, and support them diligently, and continue to give them love!! There’s not many members left now so they will probably be really lonely. Please stand by their side and comfort them for me. I’m alright. Please give me lots of love after I’ve been discharged. I will do really well here.
The air in the mountains is really clean, and the scenery is amazing, and on a clear day I can even see North Korea from the top of the mountain. It’s amazing! Anyway, I really miss everyone. Thank you to all of the fans who came to send me off the day I enlisted. I was really upset when I heard that some people slept outside for a few days ㅠㅠ Whatever you do, don’t get sick, and I will pray that no matter where you are you are always healthy. I love you. I’ll write again.
From, Recruit Lee Hyukjae.”
It seems Super Junior‘s Yesung is feeling lonely lately!
On October 30, Yesung posted a photo of the whole of Super Junior (sans Shindong and Lee Sung Min) to his Twitter along with the caption, “Now that I’m getting used to doing schedules alone, I miss doing group schedules…” Although the group released the second half of their 10th Anniversary album in September, Super Junior did not do any promotion activities for “Magic” this time around.
Instead, members have been either focusing on their own activities or gearing up to leave for their mandatory military service. Choi Siwon is the next member set to leave, following Donghae and Eunhyuk‘s departures earlier this month.
Meanwhile, Yesung has been participating in his first ever acting role for JTBC‘s weekend drama “Awl.” The drama is about a produce manager at a large chain grocery market who defies an order to fire his workers, and stands up to the injustice by joining a labor union. Yesung plays Hwang Joon Chul, one of the grocer’s seafood department staff. The drama airs on Saturdays and Sundays at 9:40 p.m. KST.
The stars are going all out for Halloween this year, and Super Junior′s Choi Siwon is no exception.
Choi Siwon posted a photo on Instagram on October 30, writing ′Halloween costume. Guess who am I?′
The glasses, turtleneck, jeans and sneakers combo are a dead giveaway as many fans have commented Steve Jobs in response to his caption, but the resemblance is truly uncanny.
Meanwhile, Choi Siwon is currently starring in the hit drama She Was Pretty.

Super Junior’s Eunhyuk Reveals Last Photo Shoot and Buzz Cut Before Military Enlistment – From 151023October 24, 2015 at 5:37 am | Posted in Eunhyuk, Interviews, Magazine, News/Rumors, Pictures/Videos, Wonderboys | Leave a comment
Super Junior’s Eunhyuk took a before and after photo shoot of his haircut prior to his enlistment to the army with The Celebrity magazine.
With the change of a haircut, his aurora completely changes. When his hair is long, he looks stylish in his knit sweater and silver rimmed glasses. The dark tone of his luscious locks adds on to the autumn atmosphere of the picture.
However, he goes through a 180-degree change after he cuts his hair, as his buzz cut gives him a masculine look. Even his pose has a brawny touch to it; by tilting his head he highlights his strong jawline.
“I felt like my heart was going to explode before cutting my hair,” Eunhyuk said. “It’s time to say goodbye to the celebrity Eunhyuk! It’s time to return to my true self.”
“Though the saying goes that even the mountains and rivers change in a decade, my fans have always stayed the same,” he added, showing gratitude towards his supporters. “Dear fans, I hope you wait for me until I come back.”
Meanwhile, Eunhyuk entered the army on October 13. He will be receiving basic training for five weeks, then start his official service for 21 months.
Super Junior Kyuhyun′s latest album is ranked number one on the Gaon Chart.
Kyuhyun′s second mini album Fall, Once Again, which was released on October 15, is number one on Gaon′s album chart for the third week of October (October 11-17).
Meanwhile, Kyuhyun will be holding his first solo concert at the SMTOWN COEX Artium SMTOWN Theatre from November 6-8 and November 13-15.
Kyuhyun will continue music program promotions for lead single A Million Pieces this week on KBS′ Music Bank on October 23, MBC′s Music Core on October 24 and SBS′ Inkigayo on October 25.
Choi Siwon danced off with Lee Sang Hoon, a comedian from “Gag Concert” who claims to be the star’s look-alike.
On the episode of MBC’s “She Was Pretty” aired on October 22, Kim Shin Hyuk (Choi Siwon), who is upset after getting dumped by Kim Hye Jin (Hwang Jung Eum), interviews Lee Sang Hoon.
Unlike his normal self, Kim Shin Hyuk is unconfident and timid during the interview. He ends up receiving complaints that he has become unbearably boring.
“I only do interviews with you because you are funny. I see you in me, and I see me in you. Unfortunately, today’s interview is just not energetic at all,” Lee Sang Hoon says.
“Shall we start off from here then,” Kim Shin Hyuk asks as he returns to his goofy self and joins Lee Sang Hoon in his iconic “Nigeul Nigeul” dance.
Meanwhile, the 11th episode of MBC’s “She Was Pretty” gained a rating of 17.7 percent, a personal record for the show.
Original version of “Nigeul Nigeul” dance:
Choi Siwon and Lee Sang Hoon clip:
Choi Siwon previously was part of the show’s “Sixth Man” special, in which he vied with other celebrities to become the sixth member of the “Infinite Challenge” team. In the end, ZE:A‘s Kwanghee was chosen as the sixth member.
Choi Siwon is currently starring in the hit MBC drama “She Was Pretty,” and it looks like he bumped into almost all of the cast while they were both filming at the MBC studios in Seoul. In a photo he posted to his Instagram on October 22, he’s posing along with cast members Jung Joon Ha, Park Myung Soo, Kwanghee, Yoo Jae Suk, and Haha, as well as PD Kim Tae Ho.
As the caption to the photo, Choi Siwon writes in Korean, “The ‘Infinite Challenge’ team, who I haven’t seen in a long time.” He then adds in English, “It was great meeting you all, missed you so much :^)”
Lastly he writes in Korean, “But I still always watch the show live.”
It’s great to see Choi Siwon back together with some of the cast!
Super Junior′s Leeteuk talked about Choi Siwon′s activities.
At the launch show for Mnet′s I See Your Voice 2, held at the AW Convention Center on October 22, Leeteuk said, “The response to Siwon from the people around me has been enthusiastic, and I′m proud that he′s doing well.”
However, I See Your Voice 2 is scheduled to air in the same time slot as She Was Pretty, which means the two Super Junior members will be competing against each other for viewership.
Regarding this, Leeteuk said, “She Was Pretty airs at 10:05. I hope Hwang Jung Eum finds love and it ends with a happy ending quickly. And the trend these days is to watch a drama all at once, so even if you′re really curious about what happens, stick it out and watch it later,” drawing laughter.
Meanwhile, I See Your Voice is a show in which guests must guess who is a talented singer in a group of ′mystery singers′ based only on what they see. As a music variety show that can turn even tone-deaf people into the star of the show, a singer is invited every episode to try to guess who the talented singer is by eliminating one to two contestants whom they think is tone-deaf through three rounds of hints before they choose a final contestant. The final contestant performs a duet with the singer at the end, and if the contestant is tone-deaf, he/she wins five million won. If the final contestant can sing, he/she wins the chance to release a song with the invited singer.
The first episode will air on tvN and Mnet on October 22 at 9:40 p.m. KST.
Choi Siwon′s solo track, You′re the Only One, for the She Was Pretty OST is receiving an enthusiastic response.
Choi Siwon′s You′re the Only One, which was released on music sites on October 22, is ranked number one on Mnet and Olleh Music, demonstrating his popularity.
You′re the Only One is a ballad that expresses the usually playful Shin Hyuk (played by Choi Siwon)′s heartfelt feelings for Hye Jin (played by Hwang Jung Eum), and it was introduced as Shin Hyuk′s theme song on episode 10 of the drama, which aired on October 22.
Choi Siwon has been garnering attention for his natural and clever acting, and viewers are catching ′Shin Hyuk fever.′
Meanwhile, MBC′s She Was Pretty airs every Wednesday and Thursday night at 10 p.m. KST.
Super Junior’s Yesung revealed Siwon lent a helping hand during filming for his first drama.
On October 21, Director Kim Suk Yoon, actors Ji Hyun Woo, Ahn Nae Sang, Kim Hee Won, Kim Ga Eun, Hyun Woo, Yesung, and Park Si Hwan attended the production presentation of “Awl.”
“I received a lot of help from other people because this was my first time acting,” Yesung said.
In the drama Yesung, plays Hwang Joon Chul, the head of the seafood corner Purumi Mart. Though Hwang Joon Chul is preparing a wedding with his girlfriend, he is unfairly fired from his job and faces a crisis.
“Siwon, who is currently popular because of the drama ‘She Was Pretty,’ gives me a lot of phone calls,” he said. “ He asks about me a lot and coaches me, saying, ‘How is filming going,’ and ‘You wanted to act; thank god you got the role.’”
“With the help of my fellow Super Junior members and company, I am currently working hard at learning,” he said.
“Awl” tells the story of the workers from Purumi Mart who are unfairly fired. It’s first episode will be aired on October 24 at 9:40 p.m.
Super Junior′s Yesung opened up about acting for the first time.
Yesung, who attended a production presentation for JTBC′s Drill, held at the Banyan Tree Club & Spa in Seoul on October 21, said of acting for the first time in his 10-year singing career, “I really wanted to act for a long time.”
He spoke about the difficulties he faced, saying “I learned a lot from the director before we went into filming. I thought, ′It′s possible to be scolded this much in life.′”
He also expressed gratitude to Choi Siwon, who is active as an actor. Yesung said, “Choi Siwon, who is becoming the most sought after person in the business through drama She Was Pretty, calls me a lot. He asks what the atmosphere is like on set, if I′m doing okay as well as teaches and helps me with regards to acting.”
Yesung will play Hwang Jun Cheol, an employee in the seafood department at Pureumi Mart.
Drill is based on a webtoon of the same name written by Choi Gyu Seok. It is centered on an incident that takes place at Pureumi Mart and the employees it involves. The first episode will air on October 24 at 9:40 p.m. KST.
