Super Junior leader Leeteuk has revealed that one of his sunbaes made him feel extremely uncomfortable during his early days as an entertainer.

Leeteuk was a guest on the November 1 episode of MBC’s “Quiz Around the World,” when he opened up about his difficult past.

“Soon after Super Junior debuted, I got cast as a regular cast member for a variety show, but one sunbae [an industry senior] picked on me a lot,” he told, and added, “As I was a rookie, I did everything as well as I could, but that sunbae tapped on my back and said, ‘Stop. You have talked a lot. Stop!'”

“He was like that during the following filming, and also the one after that. He made me feel uncomfortable, finally to the point where I did not know what to do. But one day, I went to shoot the show, but that sunbae was not there. I was told he was dismissed from the show,” Leeteuk revealed.
