Super Junior’s leader Lee Teuk revealed the hardships of being an idol star.

Aired on September 30, Super Junior made a guest appearance on the music show KBS “Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook” and spoke out about past hardships.

On this day, MC Yoo Hee Yeol asked in specifics, “The idol market is a cold and difficult market. What is the most difficult aspect of it?” From this question, Lee Teuk replied, “Honestly, there’s so many teams pouring out as idols into the market and they’re also great in what they do, as they work hard.”

He continued, “And when we’re struck with the epiphany that these people have a lot of potential in what they do, it hits home that that very moment can be the moment where we ourselves may slip and fall.” With his honest answer, the crown burst into applause in comfort and understanding.

Artists DJ DOC, Sung Shi Kyung, 45RPM, and Lee Moon Sae also featured as guests for this week’s segment.
