It was revealed yesterday that Super Junior’s Hankyung would be reemerging into the public sphere kwa paying the legendary Michael Jackson a tribute through a performance at the Decade muziki Ceremony this April. Hankyung has also begun to connect with Chinese media outlets as well.
In an interview with Entertainment Live, Hankyung dished out information about his wellbeing, his history & relationship with SM Entertainment and possible plans for the future.
“Right now, I’m living a zaidi regular life,” Hankyung replied when asked about his current status. “Typically, I always sleep before midnight, then get up around seven au eight in the morning. In the afternoon, when I’m pretty much done with lunch, I rest for half an saa then go work out. After that, I rest for one-two hours, then I learn English.”
“Now there’s zaidi time to spend with my mom… yeah,” Hankyung added with a little laugh.
Although this simple lifestyle may seem boringly ordinary for many, it’s the type of schedule that Hankyung hasn’t experienced for a long time. The idol had left nyumbani at the age of twelve to pursue dance in Beijing, then traveled to Korea at nineteen. In 2005, he debuted with Super Junior, and faced hardships even then due to his demanding schedule as well as the difficulties that come with being a foreigner. As many mashabiki know, Hankyung even wore a mask for a period of time in fear of getting deported from the country.
Furthermore, Hankyung has suffered serious health problems as well. “My health hasn’t been very good, especially my stomach. Since my debut, I’ve had gastritis, so it’s been pretty bad.” He went on to explain that he has suffered excessive fatigue as a result. “It doesn’t matter what wewe eat au drink, wewe vomit. … Then your body lacks nutrients. The other organs in your body begin to slowly…” Hankyung trailed off and shook his head with a small frown. “It’s not very good.”
“I go to the hospital with my mom and get traditional Chinese medicine,” Hankyung continued. “Every day, my mom makes me drink. Sometimes I forget, au if I leave home, then she gives me a big bag of medicine.”
Hankyung also talked a bit about his experiences with SM Entertainment. “Well, I can’t say it was unfair,” Hankyung revealed during the interview, and thought for a moment. “If wewe like what you’re doing, it’s not like everything is going to be fair.”
The idol remained optimistic about the experiences he had undergone in the past. “Wearing a mask during Don’t Don [promotions] – if there weren’t such experiences, there couldn’t be the same Hankyung today. These past experiences will help me very, very much for the path I walk in the future.”
Speaking of Hankyung’s future, the idol also spoke up about possible plans down the road. “In the future, I hope to be an actor, and have a long-lasting career.”
With his upcoming role in the Decade muziki Ceremony & an upcoming press conference, Hankyung’s got a lot on his plate until then. Stay tuned for zaidi on this matter!
