Super Junior-M’s Henry appeared as a guest on the July 29 broadcast of SBS’ talk show “Magic Eye,” to discuss the topic of ‘appearance.’
During the show, Henry shared that he doesn’t get treated like an adult due to his youthful appearance, and also confessed that he likes Lee Hyori for her ugly looks.
The singer explained that he feels stressed about how young he looks for his age. Henry went on to share an experience he had because he appears to look much younger than 26 years old (Korean age). During a Super Junior concert rehearsal, the staff called the other members’ names politely, while they called him “Henry” and spoke to him informally.
He added that the cleaning lady at the group’s dorm also spoke to him as if he was a child, unlike the way she spoke to the other members, which caused him stress as well.
During the same episode, one of the MCs, Hong Jin Kyung, said that she had heard Henry was a fan of Lee Hyori, to which he replied, “I don’t like her because she’s pretty, I like her because she’s slightly ugly. Celebrities act pretty. But one day, I was watching a broadcast where [Lee Hyori] had no makeup on, and she honestly looked a little ugly.”
However, he explained that he thought it was amazing of her, as a female celebrity, to proudly show her no makeup face on television, resolving any misunderstandings about his statement.
