[News] Siwon and Changmin are the attention-getting during trainee days- Come to Play

On the June 27 episode of MBC’s entertainment show Come to Play, SM Town’s singers, who had just completed concerts in Paris in great success, were invited: TVXQ, Super Junior, Girls’ Generation and f(x).

Super Junior’s Leeteuk evoked curiosity by saying, “When we were trainees, we were generally stirred up as a new face came in the competitive society. All the existing trainees start holding the new member in check. The most attention-getting figures at the time were TVXQ’s Changmin and Super Junior’s Siwon and Shindong.”

He explained, “Changmin received attention because he looked very much alike in appearance with HOT’s Gangta, one of the most popular stars at the time. Siwon as well showed off a prince-like appearance. And it was widely noised that Shindong was one of the best singers in Korea because of his oversized body. We all thought that he must have had a distinctive physical soundbox.”

Shindong evoked a burst of laughter by saying, “I was prohibited from occupying a central position on stage because my agency was worried about the optical illusion effect of making the other members also look fat.
