He lived in the same dorm as Hankyung and had a special relationship with him. He said, “I was in a big chaos. It was difficult for me to laugh on TV and dance on stage.” Afterwards, he did not go on stage including year-end award shows. For 3 months, he lived in seclusion, locking his door. His only friends were two cats. Heechul revealed, “I had some lingering emotions. Since I didn't meet any people, depression got worse. I had lived with Hankyung, drank together and was really close. It was mentally difficult.” His mind became comfortable after thinking, “when me and Hankyung do well we can meet each other.” JOKWON -2AM The happy virus of K-Pop, Jo Kwon! He always brings laughter and joy to those around him. “I was fearful because I didn’t know when I would be cut. I even suffered from depression during those eight years of training" But he pushed through it and was able to rise above it. His determination and willpower is simply astounding and admirable. TAEYEON -SNSD This issue came up around the I Got a Boy era when Taeyeon outwardly admitted her depression “After my schedule is finish, I return home and feel lonely and empty inside. I don’t know what to do about it,” she remarked. KISEOP -U-KISS "Before coming into U-KISS, I found my dream and had planned on following it. But wherever I went, the companies wouldn’t pick me and I always failed. I eventually gave up and went into 2 months of harsh Depression. I thought a lot about the possibility of suicide" "My mom…my mom was thinking of me and she cried herself to sleep. I didn’t see my mom cry often. After watching her cry, I realized what I was doing…I was thinking about suicide and didn’t even go out to meet friends." "But after seeing my mom cry and try to make me feel better, I got back up. After that, I told myself I would work harder and never give up" PARK BOM - 2NE1 When Park Bom was growing up in the United States, she was an avid soccer player and dreamed of being a soccer star.

Super Junior Age Group: Oldest to Youngest
Leetuek - July 1, 1983 Fact: Leeteuk is afraid of being alone, when he was in the hospital, he asked Donghae and Ryeowook to stay overnight with him Heechul - July 10, 1983 Fact: Because Heechul’s personality is quite sensitive, he draws a line when he sleeps on the bed. If anyone crosses the line, they will be kicked out. The people that can sleep with Heechul is Kibum and Typhoon (The Trax). Hangeng - February 9, 1984 Fact: In 2002 he passed the SM Entertainment’s audition in China. He was one out of the 3000 to pass the auditions. He left for Korea. His family was poor, so when he left he didn’t ask for money and left with an empty wallet. Using a vacation visa, he left to a country where he wouldn’t know anyone, without money and without knowing any Korean words. After 2 more years of hard training, Hangeng made his debut as a member of the new project group “Super Junior 05″ together with 11 Korean guys. These 12 reached fame, but several months later something very harsh happened. Since Hangeng was the first Chinese person to debut in Korea, Hangeng and SM didn’t know about the laws. Hangeng found out that his visa was wrong, and that he was no longer allowed to perform until the Visa problem had been solved. There was also a law saying that foreigners could only perform on 3 TV channels. Basically, Hangeng was told that he would be fined or even kicked out of Korea if he performed on TV. Wanting to help the band, Hangeng came up with an idea.. Would it be possible to stay by their side (super junior) if no one knew who he was? Since he wore a mask… he was able to perform. He continued to wear his mask for 2-3 months. He was seen as a backup dancer. The members tried to comfort him, but still he was in deep pain. He always told his mother on the phone that everything was okay. His lines had to be lip-synched by other members while he was still hiding in the back. Credit to owner~ Yesung - August 24, 1984 Fact: When the accident happened to SJ in 2007, Yesung cried for Leeteuk, Eunhyuk, Shindong and Kyuhyun who were involved in the accident. Leeteuk: “He even told me not to worry because there he will keep all members SJ.” Yesung said to Kyuhyun who is seriously injured in that accident: “If you heal, I will not be angry anymore though you always making fun of me.” Kangin - January 17, 1985 Fact: The name “KANGIN” was given to him to suit his personality., Kangin means “strong benevolence:, a strong but nice person. Shindong - September 28, 1985 Fact: Once Shindong heard 2 highschool girls walking past him saying “there’s Shindong the other girl say "really" so the girl went to see if its really him then she said “its not him!” Sungmin - January 1, 1986 Fact: When Sungmin was asked to finish the sentence, “Super Junior is..” He replied “a theme park” Eunhyuk - April 4, 1986 Fact: The member voted Eunhyuk as the member who watches the most Yadong (erotic video). There was an article that came out that said, “ Eunhyuk is a Yadong Mania”. After the article came out, his mom called him and asked him, “did I raise you to be this way?” Siwon - April 7, 1986 Fact: Siwon often gives injuries to other members accidentally, since he can’t control his strength. Donghae - October 15, 1986 Fact: Donghae who is quite weak in health, often loses sleep at night. Sungmin who lives with him would fall asleep easily at the count of three, leaving Donghae to roll and flip around in bed trying to fall asleep. Ryeowook - June 21, 1987 Fact: He would go to his hyungs’ rooms at night, when they ask why he is there he would say,”I just wanna be with hyung for awhile, can I?” Kibum - August 21, 1987 Fact: He always say that being a singer is God’s will. This is because when Kibum was living in America, he went to church every week. And on one of the week after service, he and his group of friends went to eat spicy rice cake. Unfortunately he lost his way. And that's when he met one of the SM person that asked him to join. Kyuhyun - February 3, 1988 Fact: He loves playing online games (such as Starcraft) so much and is known for his exceptional gaming skills, so much so that he was nicknamed ‘GameKyu’ [see GameKyu Saga]. He expressed in radio interviews that if he wasn’t a singer, he’d like to be a professional gamer. He has said that gaming helps him relax. He is well-known for liking the game Star Craft, in particular. Hi guys! It's been awhile since I've posted right? Not sure how long!

Are ‘Faith’ and ‘Arang and the Magistrate’ Putting Lee Joon Gi and Lee Min Ho to Good Use?
MBC’s Arang and the Magistrate and SBS’ Faith, both of which have gathered great interest as the comeback pieces of hallyu stars Lee Joon Gi and Lee Min Ho, actually haven’t been doing very well. In viewership ratings, the situation isn’t too bad, because both have been garnering a little over 10 percent, but most of the viewers in that 10 percent say that they’re just watching because of Lee Joon Gi and Lee Min Ho, not because the dramas are any good. The dramas’ viewer boards are covered with posts reading, ‘When is Lee Min Ho going to play a part? Kim Hee Sun, Ryu Deok Hwan and Choi Min Soo seem to have more weight’ and ‘Lee Joon Gi just chases after Shin Min Ah’s coattails; I think this drama should be titled “Arang” and not Arang and the Magistrate.’ Viewers agree that they watch because they like the leads, but the quality of the dramas don’t live up to their leads’ names. Viewers say that the problem with Arang and the Magistrate and Faith is that they are either too unfriendly or too friendly. It is true that Arang and the Magistrate is supposed to be a mystery drama, but it has been throwing out too many unanswered questions and no clues, only leaving viewers confused and cutting off any hopes of solving the mystery. The most recent third and fourth episodes contained many questions, but the story progressed so slowly that no clues were uncovered. How Arang (Shin Min Ah) died, why the Great Jade Emperor (Yoo Seung Ho) and the King of the Underworld (Park Joon Kyu) are listening closely to Arang’s story or how Arang is related to the incident that occurred 400 years ago still remain as big unanswered mysteries. On top of that, the drama continues to pile up on the questions, such as what it is Moo Young (Han Jung Su) regrets in his past life, why Joo Wal (Yeon Woo Jin) needs to deliver young girls to a mysterious woman at the full moon or why Lord Choi (Kim Yong Gun) is at odds with his foster son Joo Wal. There are even more mysteries outside of the obvious stated in the drama, such as how Arang’s body managed to survive in the earth without decay, how Eun Oh (Lee Joon Gi) can see ghosts and fight so well even though he’s not a shaman and why Arang has Eun Oh’s mother’s hairpin or why Lee Seo Rim’s body doesn’t. Viewers have said, ‘I think Lee Joon Gi’s talent is being wasted. He’s just chasing Arang around, and he has less character than even those other supporting roles’, ‘Lee Joon Gi just seems to be Arang’s romantic partner. The magistrate is nowhere to be seen; there’s only Arang’, ‘Please don’t sell this overseas in Lee Joon Gi’s name’ and ‘The story is so slow.’ Faith, on the other hand, has been put under fire for opposite reasons. The drama is said to be too repetitive in its attempts to be friendly. Although the real main character is Kim Hee Sun’s ‘doctor from the heavens,’ most viewers watch the drama to see Lee Min Ho. Nevertheless, the only thing the Goryeo warrior Choi Young, who Lee Min Ho plays, has done so far is get stabbed with knives, fall down and get up again. Explanations of each character pop up too often in flashbacks, making the main story too boring. The third and fourth episodes used 20 minutes each to explain why King Gong Min (Ryu Deok Hwan) and Princess No Guk (Park Se Young) are so cold toward each other and why Choi Young doesn’t want to live anymore. Viewers took to the boards to point out, ‘Is this really a 10 billion won drama?’, ‘The cameo Choi Min Soo looked more like the lead than Lee Min Ho’ and ‘The animations and awkward special effects cover up Lee Min Ho’s acting.’ Will Arang and the Magistrate and Faith be able to put their male leads to proper use and grab the attention of their viewers anytime soon? Viewers can only hope. Photo credit: MBC, SBS
