Eunhyuk or Lee HyukJae Super Junior Dancer Profile
Lee HyukJae or better known as Eunhyuk is a member of Korean boyband Super Junior, in which his position in the group is the lead rapper and one of the four lead dancers.
Eunhyuk has the same birth name as comedian Lee Hyukjae. This is why he chose the name Eunhyuk. “Eun” meaning silver, hence his jewel boy nickname.
He is also very close to DBSK‘s Xiah Junsu, they met in middle school and have since been best friends.
Eunhyuk has starred in several korean drama such as Rainbow Romance, We Got married, Let’s Go Dream team Season 2.
As a young boy, in 2nd grade, Hyukjae first became interested in dancing. Watching his older sister practicing for a school talent show, he got inspired to dance himself. The next year, he entered his own school’s talent show with friends. Enjoying every minute of rehearsals and performing, he developed a love for dancing. He would watch videos and continue to practice in order to be a dancer of the highest caliber that he could reach.
In the year 2000, Hyukjae auditioned for Starlight Casting System 2000 and became an SM Entertainment trainee soon after when he was advised to audition. He and Junsu were the only two who made it through that particular audition. Two years later, Hyukjae, along with Sungmin, Xiah Junsu (DBSK) were in a project group. This group made a brief appearance on a show called “Heejun vs. Kangta Battle of the Century Pop vs. Rock.”
Unfortunately the trio group was cancelled and Junsu was moved to Dong Bang Shin Ki. When DBSK debuted, Hyukjae, though still a trainee was absolutely thrilled for Junsu (his best friend) and was inspired to never give up. Shortly thereafter, on November 6, 2005, he debuted as an official member of Super Junior 05 as the lead dancer and rapper.
Eunhyuk career in Super Junior
Eunhyuk was born Lee Hyuk-jae in Neunggok, Goyang, Gyeonggi. In 1999 when he turned thirteen, he auditioned for SM Entertainment through the company’s Starlight Casting System with childhood friend Xiah. Xiah was selected to sign a contract with the company soon after, but Eunhyuk failed the audition. He auditioned again the following year and was finally selected through showcasing his rapping and dancing abilities. Under SM Entertainment, Eunhyuk was further trained in singing, dancing, acting, and had brief Mandarin Chinese language courses. In 2002 Eunhyuk, Xiah, and another trainee Sungmin were placed in a project R&B group. A year later, the trio along with three future members from TRAX (Jay Kim, No Minwoo, Kang Jungwoo) made a brief appearance in a show called Heejun vs. Kangta, Battle of the Century: Pop vs. Rock, in which Moon Hee-jun and Kangta individually taught them techniques on different types of singing. Later that year, Eunhyuk’s trio disbanded, and Xiah debuted as a member of TVXQ in 2003. Eunhyuk and Sungmin were instead placed together in another project group with ten other male trainees. The twelve boys formed the group Super Junior 05, being the first generation of the rotational boy band Super Junior.
With a total of twelve members, Super Junior 05 officially debuted on November 6, 2005 on SBS’s music program Popular Songs, performing their first single, “TWINS (Knock Out)”. Their debut performance attracted over 500 fans and also garnered oversea viewers from both China and Japan. A full studio album was released a month later, which debuted at #3 on the monthly MIAK K-pop album charts.
In March 2006, SM Entertainment began to recruit new members for the next Super Junior generation. However, plans changed when the company added in a thirteenth member, Kyuhyun, and the company declared a halt in forming future Super Junior generations. The group dropped the suffix “05″ and became officially credited as Super Junior. The re-polished group hit big after they released their first CD single “U” the following summer, which became Super Junior’s most successful single in the music charts until the release of “Sorry, Sorry” in March 2009.
Eunhyuk is an acclaimed lyricist and wrote rap lyrics for a majority of Super Junior’s songs. The rap lyrics to “Show Me Your Love” from the winter single with TVXQ was written by him, along with Heechul and Shindong. The Lyrics to One Love was also one of his works. Along with Donghae, he also choreographs some of Super Junior’s dance routines.
He is one of the lead dancers in his band. He’s also known as the dancing machine, which he is known by many people as a great dancer.
During his career with Super Junior, Eunhyuk was put into two subgroups, smaller groups that are branched off of the larger Super Junior group. In February 2007, he was placed in the trot-singing Super Junior-T. A year later, he became a member of Super Junior-Happy.
Eunhyuk in love triangle
On this week’s episode of Happy Together Season 3, Super Junior’s Eunhyuk admitted being in a bitter love triangle once. Yes, perhaps the most typical element of all Korean dramas around but everyone loves it!
Eunhyuk began to tell his story by confessing that he had a girlfriend in the past who once dated another male celebrity before.
The boy continued, “One day, I was hosting for a music program as the main MC. On the show, the girlfriend’s ex-boyfriend came up on stage for his performance.
Then I got a text from my girlfriend which she meant to send to her ex-boyfriend. She was talking about the good memories with her ex-boyfriend while they were dating, like how he often made secret signs on stage for her.”
Infuriated, Eunhyuk admitted that he ran to the bathroom and hurt his hand in anger. Everyone on the set expressed their sympathy for the idol boy after hearing his story.
After this heartfelt story was broadcast, the netizens pinpointed two specific idol stars that could possibly be the couple Eunhyuk was talking about.
According to their speculations, Eunhyuk’s ex-girlfriend is Lee Hyun Ji, an actress/model/singer, whereas his ex’s ex is Heo Youngsaeng of SS501. Now, that’s scandalous if you believe them of course.
Eunhyuk now has blonde hair
TVXQ’s Jaejoong and SNSD’s Jessica have all garnered attention in the past for sporting golden locks, and it looks like Eunhyuk is the latest SM artist to jump on the blonde bandwagon with Super Junior’s new promotions just around the corner.
With SuJu’s repackaged fourth album released just yesterday, ELFs have paid special attention to the members in hopes of gaining clues about the group’s upcoming promotions. Today, they were rewarded with new photos of Eunhyuk at today’s recording session for Kiss the Radio, which document the dancer’s dramatic hair transformation from black to blonde.
