K-pop boy group Super Junior appeared on MBC talk show “Radio Star” with the theme “Super Junior! Bag Guys.”


In the latest episode, which aired on Wednesday, six members -- Heechul, Siwon, Leeteuk, Donghae, Eunhyuk and Yesung -- joined the program, talking about diverse issues on members leaving the group, joining the army, conflicts, rumors and weddings.

The most eye-catching scene was the recent state of the former members Hankyung and Kibum.

Leeteuk, the leader of the group, said, “Kibum is taking a long hiatus from Super Junior to do acting.”

He added, “But, Kibum is still one of us. Since he just longs for acting more than singing, he is not with us for now.”

Yesung also said he saw Hankyung by chance while shopping.

“I felt glad to see him because we were friends,” he said, adding, “Hankyung also asked me to grab a meal someday.”

They also talked about Sung-min’s marriage, an unusual event for an idol member.

Heechul said, “There was not enough communication (within the group) as he prepared for his wedding, though fans already knew about his relationship with (actress Kim Sa-eun). I feel sorry as I did not properly congratulate him on his marriage.”

Apart from the serious issues, they also created an amiable atmosphere, making fun of each other.

Heechul said, “Siwon is over-packaged like a potato chip bag. While with us, he is very funny, but he tries to look cool whenever he is on the show,” making all the emcees and guests laugh.

Despite the witty and funny mood, the viewer ratings slightly dropped to 6.2 percent, from 6.9 percent for the previous episode.

Super Junior released its new album “Devil” and its music video on Thursday, marking the group’s 10th anniversary.
