Super Junior leader Leeteuk recently sat down for an interview to talk about one of the many shows he is hosting right now, “Please Take Care Of My Vanity.” During the interview, he was asked if he has any advice for his fellow member Ryeowook, who will be enlisting in the army to fulfill his mandatory military service on October 11.
“I just hope that he comes back healthy,” replies Leeteuk. “Before Eunhyuk enlisted, he told me, ‘I’m going to work hard and study Chinese while I’m in the army!’ but when I went to visit him, he told me he hadn’t been able to do a thing.”
Leeteuk laughs and goes on to say, “I had told him that he wouldn’t have time to do that. Ryeowook also says he’s going to do such-and-such once he goes, but I just hope that he comes back healthy. If I have time, I’ll visit him.”
When asked if he has any plans to make a solo debut, Leeteuk replies, “I said once at a press conference that I’ll go solo in 2047. I don’t have time to do solo activities right now, and also next year five of our members who are in the army right now will be coming back.”
“I think that we’ll be promoting again for the first time in a long while under the name of Super Junior around September or October of 2017,” he adds. “First off, Sungmin and Shindong will be coming back in December of this year, then Eunhyuk and Donghae will come back in July, and Siwon will be back in August. Even if it’s just the five of them coming back, since we’ll have eight or nine members, we could do it, right?”
Super Junior celebrated their 10th anniversary last year by releasing two parts of a special anniversary album, “Devil” and “Magic.” Are you looking forward to seeing Super Junior make a return as a group again?
