    Personally, I find Siwon to be an ideal man. He’s a gentleman, religious, a hug lover, and athletic. He’s good looking too. In a nutshell he is perfect. ❤

    “3 fingers: (he uses 3 instead of 5 because to him 5 fingers looks to stiff. ) = His way of saying Hi?”
    I remember this from a Strong Heart’s episode. He said something like he tries with the 5 fingers but as it comes out stiff then three of his fingers and straight and the last two half way up which ends up looking as if he were using only three fingers. But I think that after sometime it just became one his signature traits and he just used it as that.

    The Gesture And Gentelman Of SJ

    I love the way you and your band(friends) dance and sing. Your choreography is beyond amazing. Watching the way you guys move your feet and body to the rhythm of the music is heart stopping. I’ve always wanted to know someone that has that great of a talent, that can dance so well. Watching Super Junior makes me want to get up and dance away all my troubles. Seeing you and your band have so much fun and love in what you are doing it the greatest thing I have came across. You guys are awesome.

      I’ve only just discovered this band and the way they move has drawn me to listen and watch more.

    I agree with those who say he sounds like the perfect guy. For me, it’s the fact that he’s so strong about his faith. I know he gets made fun of for that at times, or at least that’s what I’ve heard, but it takes a lot of strength to deal with that day to day. I wish him the best in his endeavours. I read somewhere that after his career he plans to become a missionary.
