Super Junior’s Heechul Addresses Rumors He Unfollowed Sulli + Why He Left “War of Words”
On the July 15 broadcast of MBC’s variety talk show “Radio Star,” the members of Super Junior made a guest appearance to celebrate the group’s 10th debut anniversary.
On this day, members Leeteuk, Heechul, Siwon, Eunhyuk, Donghae, and Yesung appeared on the show while Kyuhyun took up his regular MC position.
During the episode, the MCs brought up the topic of Sulli, who is known to be close with Heechul. At the mention of Sulli, Heechul responded, “I dropped out of ‘War of Words’ to avoid having to talk about Sulli but they ask me about it here,” causing laughter.
When asked about the rumors that he unfollowed Sulli on SNS, the Super Junior member shared, “Our SNS accounts get hacked into very often. So at that time, I unfollowed everyone. I usually start following people again, one by one, as I meet up with them. But [in the middle of that process] Sulli told me about the articles [of my unfollowing]. When I read them, there were comments saying things like, ‘If even Kim Heechul unfollowed Sulli, she’s not human,’” explaining that it wasn’t the case that he intentionally unfollowed Sulli as reports claimed.
