Debut:

He was then trained in singing, acting, and dancing. He was first recruited in a five member boy band “smile” with future bandmate Leeteuk but this idea was dropped. Donghae was then put into another boy band group, Super Junior 05 now known as Super Junior without the 05 suffix.

How he became a singer:
Donghae’s dream when he was a small child was to become a athlete, but he always liked dancing infront of his father. His father told Donghae to become  a singer, but he wasn’t sure whether or not his father was serious. In grade 6, he said no to his father, but by the end of grade 7 he noticed a small ad in an album for auditions and he deiceded to go for an audition. He told his father he wanted to try, and his father said yes and gave him some money. Donghae passed the auditions. Donghae’s father originally wanted to be a singer, but his father (Donghae’s grandfather_ objected to the idea.

  • Donghae said that he hates celebrating his birthday. Because last year, Super Junior went somewhere to perform. He was looking forward to 12 o’clock to come when all his members would give him presents but they all were busy doing their own things, making him so sad, so every time they talk about birthdays on air he would always complain.

  • Donghae always wears a silver bracelet on his wrist, it was given to him by his mother so he never takes it off.
  • Donghae used to play at the public bath house with his friends, using the bathhouse like a swimming pool, thus making all the ahjusshis there angry.

  • Before he debuted, he was afraid of taking the airplane, so he never went to any of the 3 school trip to Jeju Island during high school.
  • Donghae, who is sensitive to his surroundings, will not be able to fall asleep for the whole night if he is sleeping elsewhere other than home. It’s because he felt insecure when he does not see anything familiar to him in the surrounding.

  • He once promised his father that under any circumstances, that he will not drink alcohol.
  • No matter how much he eats, he will not gain fat. Whenever he feels like he had gain a bit of weight, he’ll exercise. And the first place to slim down is his face.
  •  is really afraid of Shindong’s snoring, and his loud breathing while sleeping scares him too. It’s almost impossible to sleep at night, for him.
  • likes the feeling of being protected, being cared for. & because he’ll feel lonely easily, he never eats alone. He needs to have someone to eat with him.
  • hates to eat alone, Donghae often sits in other members’ to wait for them to be done working so he can go eat with them.
  •  dislikes pink a lot.. because opposite of his bed is Sungmin’s wardrobe and it’s full of pinkish stuffs, clothes, dolls, pillow, bags and shoes are all pink. (they are no longer roommates though. )
  • He’s not really good at searching things online. He doesn’t even know how to use ‘Naver’ to search. Thus he doesn’t like going online, not to mention shopping online too.
  • really admires those taxi drivers and public transport drivers. Not only because his father used to be a taxi driver, but also because he himself would feel tired and ache all over after driving for half an hour and thus find those people impressive as they can drive all day long.
  • is very affectionate so his methods of waking up the other members are to either pat their butts or go hug them out of bed.

  • Donghae has low alcohol tolerance
  • his father was a taxi driver
