Super Junior’s Kyuhyun Reveals That TVXQ’s Changmin is a Scrooge


Super Junior’s Kyuhyun revealed that whenever the time comes to pay after a meal, TVXQ‘s Changmin pretends to have forgotten his wallet at home.

On April 30, Kyuhyun as well as the other SM artists, attended the showcase for the the SM Town movie, “I AM,” at CGV theaters. This day, Kyuhyun revealed some of the behind stories along with some of the difficulties he had faced on set. 

He especially received attention for revealing Changmin’s “Scrooge-like” personality. He brought a lot of laughter by telling about an incident when Changmin “acted like he forgot his wallet at home.”

Kyuhyun stated, “One day, Changmin said that he wanted to eat beef. So the two of us went to a quite expensive restaurant to eat together. Changmin said to me, ‘Kyuhyun, I’ll pay for the meal. Eat as much as you want.’ Then all of a sudden, he pretended to be surprised and said, ‘Oops. I forgot my wallet at home!'”

“Hearing this, I told him, ‘Okay. Then I’ll pay for the meal today.’ As soon as I told him that I would pay, Changmin asked me, ‘Then can we order two more servings of beef? And also, can we order some more bibimbap and cold noodles?'” His hilarious story brought a lot of laughter to the site, making Changmin quite embarrassed. 

Also on this day, SHINee‘s Minho revealed a similar story about Super Junior’s Eunhyuk. Minho stated, “There is always that hyung who is really close to you but never buys food for you. For me, that person is Eunhyuk.” Furthermore, he said, “Since I’m younger, it’s quite awkward for me to ask him to buy a meal for me first. Shouldn’t he offer to buy me a meal first? But he never has.” Minho’s joking complaint received a lot of attention.

In response to this, Eunhyuk joked, “Although I am older, there are some people who you simply do not want to spend your money on. For me, that person is Minho. Even if I don’t buy food for him, he looks like he will eat fine on his own. He’s even taller than me!” His hilarious comment also brought a lot of laughter.
