Super Junior star Heechul was quick to defend groupmate Sungmin when the news of him dating musical star Kim Sa Eun went public.
Turning to social media platform Instagram (where Heechul has close to two million followers), he posted a selca of the two together, and told the story of their friendship, his thoughts on the public reaction of the news, as well as telling about Sungmin’s reaction to the media’s discovery of his relationship.
Below is a translation of Heechul’s touching message:
“He’s not my real dongsaeng, but my dongsaeng Lee Sungmin. He’s still saved as ‘Dan Ho Bak’ in my phone. ‘Boil a lot of sweet pumpkin (danhobak)~ I ate it all’ – it was a line like this. But I forgot it. Kekekeke.
Always quiet with no issues at all, Sungmin is a bit busy today.. ^-^
It’s something I always say. ‘Hey, you shouldn’t hit Sungmin with even a flower.’ It’s right. Our Sungmin cannot be hit even with a flower or my face (it’s a flower, yes yes). Keke.
Maybe I’m overexaggerating during this promotion? But our members are all struggling but having a good time, all leaning on each other. It’ll be like this even in the future. Let’s all hold hands like oppa, dongseng, unnie nuna and be happy together for a really really long time!!
I’m the one who really hates cheesy things, but our Sungmin, who has never cried in any place, said, ‘Hyung… I’m sorry… to the fans… and the members,’ and I became very upset.
Although the path that the Dan Ho Bak is going on won’t be a silk road, let’s not make it a thorny one.
I love you my babies!
Although I can’t make a proper heart.”
Heechul has always been one of the most outspoken members of Super Junior and to have him rush to Sungmin’s side and speak so positively during what may be a difficult time for his groupmate is so nice to see. The presence of this confession on social media may help change the negative way some fans may be thinking of Sungmin’s news and for that, we thank Heechul!
