On April 4, ELFs around the world celebrate Super Junior Eunhyuk’s 31 birthday (30 interationally).
Lee Hyuk Jae, going by the stage name Eunhyuk, was born on the 4th of April 1986. He decided to go by a stage name because there already is a comedian named Lee Hyuk Jae. His other nicknames are Dancing Machine, Anchovy and Monkey.
Here are some facts about Eunhyuk:
- Eunhyuk is a dancer, rapper, MC and songwriter
- He is the lead rapper and one of the three lead dancers alongside Shindong and Donghae
- Eunhyuk plays piano well and a little bit of guitar
- On Leeteuk’s birthday in 2008, Eunhyuk stayed up all night the day before in order to record a song that he and the PD had worked together to create. The song was played on Teuk’s birthday as a surprise. Leeteuk was so touched he cried.
When he turned thirteen, he auditioned for SM Entertainment through the company’s Starlight Casting System with childhood friend Kim Junsu, but Eunhyuk failed the audition. However, he auditioned again the following year and was finally selected thanks to his rapping and dancing abilities.
Under SM Entertainment, Eunhyuk was further trained in singing, dancing, acting, and had brief Mandarin Chinese language courses.
In 2002 Eunhyuk, Kim Junsu, and another trainee Sungmin were placed in a project R&B group but later that year, Eunhyuk’s trio disbanded, and Kim Junsu debuted as a member of TVXQ.
Eunhyuk and Sungmin were instead placed together in another project group with ten other male trainees and with a total of twelve members, Super Junior officially debuted on November 6, 2005 on SBS’s music program ‘Popular Songs’, performing their first single, ‘TWINS (Knock Out)’.
