Super Junior’s Kyuhyun was Upset for Not Being Given Variety Opportunities
While he’s rocking it out on MBC’s Radio Star now, Super Junior’s Kyuhyun shared a time when he was not given any opportunities to appear on variety shows.
On September 12, Kyuhyun was joined by Choi Si Won, Leeteuk, Eunhyuk, and Shindong on Radio Star, where the members began talking about how the group led into variety shows.
All the other Super Junior members began appearing on variety shows, but Kyuhyun was not given the chance.
“The company didn’t even think about sending me out on a show,’ shared Kyuhyun, “Because I was a main vocal, I wasn’t given a chance and because I’m not the type to speak out about it, I drowned myself in frustration.”
Kyuhyun became teary-eyed, thinking about the times when he wasn’t a spotlighted members in Super Junior.
Leeteuk shared that three main vocalists, Kyuhyun, Yesung, and Ryeowook, are actually very funny. “But I think the company decided not to let them on variety shows, because they were worried that their ballad singing image would be replaced with a humorous one.”
But through a recommendation by MC Kim Gura, Kyuhyun became a member of the Radio Star panel.
“I couldn’t even sleep the night before the first filming because I knew this would be my first and last chance at a variety show.”
