Super Junior's Leeteuk confirms enlistment date



Article: Super Junior's Leeteuk confirms enlistment date of October 30th 'active duty soldier'

Source: TV Daily via Nate

1. [+785, -273] Like the oldest hyung and leader of Super Junior that he is, he seems to be setting a great example

2. [+524, -73] As long as he doesn't act like he was the only one in that served in the army when he gets discharged like Boom, I don't care. I have nothing to say to someone that is getting medical treatment for something that hurts. Just graduate from a general troop staff and earn your credentials confidently

3. [+930, -638] Although enlisting is something definite... You are better than the other .. cough cough cough cough (TN: Reference to Yoochun getting out of serving as an active duty soldier for asthma... Netizens nicknamed him Park Yoochunshik [chunshik = asthma] because they feel that if he's able to smoke cigarettes, it's not serious enough to excuse him from active service.)

  2. *waits for immature international fans to bash*
    The only thing they are good at lol

    Not a Super Junior fan but I have respect for him that he wants to go as active soldier despite his injuries and not taking the easy way out.

  3. Didn't know that about yoochun, if you want to use asthma as an excuse at least quit smoking.

  4. That Yoochun argument is a strange one because do people really think smoking=going through military boot camp and being in active duty?

    I mean, I have asthma. I can smoke. I need the inhaler more often that I would if I didn't probably, but it's not like it's affecting me that badly (as far as my asthma goes)
    But ask me to run one mile and I'll be a wheezing mess that needs the inhaler before I die. Cardiovascular fitness flares up asthma a lot more than smoking does tbh

  5. I love Yoochun but the dude is not getting any points for being excused from active duty, he'll be judged harshly for this (when he enlists). Good for Leetuek, as Super Juniors leader he is really setting a good example.

  6. Wow, that's actually a lot more positive than I expected. Although I obviously don't know what the general k-public thinks of him, the international fandom sure is opinionated and that. LOL.

    As a fan, I'm really proud of him for going as an active soldier. He's had really bad back problems since the accident in 2007 and I'd assumed he would just be going in as a celebrity soldier, promo-soldier. Good on him I reckon for trying to get his back problems sorted so he can enlist as best he can. I just hope it doesn't make it worse, or aggravate it too terribly. Best of luck, and I hope he comes back a better person. ^^

  7. so he's enlisting as a normal soldier? huh. he just gained a couple of points in my book for that considering his circumstances lol.

  8. Why is Leeteuk getting praised for doing something all S. Korean males have to do? He's going because he has to and it's career suicide to dodge.

    1. It's because he's going despite his injuries and not making excuses to dodge it or use his celebrity status to avoid it...... like other celebrities that got kicked out of Korea for avoiding enlistment or use excuses (MC Mong comes to mind whether it's true or not)

  9. Can someone elaborate on his leeteuk's injuries? I keep hearing "despite his injuries" and I don't even know what they are

    Keep in mind, when it comes to kcelebs, these articles are written by their own companies and are exaggerated as hell so who knows how much of the issue is still there lol

    1. As the person below me mentioned, he was involved in a car accident along with his members.
      His back has been affecting him until now (most of the glass shards went to his back) so performing has been a huge strain on him.

      Now we know that companies like to exagerate but to "lie" or stretch the truth regarding this is impossible because army duties is important there (it happened before but sme is not that stupid)

    2. He's missing a vertebrae in his back and has scoliosis which have caused him pain and the accident only made it worse.

  10. He was involve in a car accident in 2007 along with eunhyuk, shindong n kyuhyun had glass shards embedded in his back and above his eyes, requiring over 170 stitches.

  15. Too bad yoochun's article about his soldier duty is already old, I want to see their comments on that.....

  16. glad that netizens didn't leave negative responses to him

  17. he was involved in a serious car accident back in 2007 where Super Junior's car flipped, it was so serious that Kyuhyun almost lost his voice and died, and Leeteuk was injured severely as well and he now suffers from severe 'scoliosis' which is a medical condition in which a person's spine is curved from side to side, so for the past months Leeteuk has been training himself and strengthening his body so he'd able to serve as an active soldier duty.
    you can look up SJ's car accident and scoliosis on youtube and google for more infos.

  18. Can someone please tell me what boom did after his service? the second comment thanks!

  19. I'm glad. I'm glad he doesnt join public service like heechul or else he would be getting lots of hate. plus its no different from living like right now except no broadcast and recording and concerts to perform in.

  20. That's good and all but the drama over his enlistment for over a year could have been avoided.

    Not a Suju fan but I still feel like they can still function without him. Why did he make it seem like Suju will be gone without him?

  21. so many obvious elfs sticking up for their oppa in the comments here lol

    the only reason this is some kinda deal is because he's doing active duty. most celebrities do public service work (like shinhwa minus andy) and either way, it's nothing. everyone has to do it so you do it, get out, and life moves on. celebrities even get radio hosting gigs and such in the entertainment sector of the army lol. for celebrities it's a joke

  22. i hate how elfs exaggerate his enlistment. i think it was mentioned a long time ago, and a lot, like he's the only one good guy in korea or sth, but only finalized now? -.- i remember when ss501's kyujong or that guy in choshinsung enlisted, no1 cared :( please quickly go to the army and serve the country leeteuk....
