Super Junior’s Leeteuk expressed fear about what will happen to him after returning from the army.
Though he’s not there yet, it’s almost time for this idol leader to head off, and on the episode of Happy Birthday that aired on the second, he talked about how he is scared taht he will lose popularity when he comes back from the army.
Leeteuk said, “Kim Jong Min and Chun Myung Hoon don’t seem to have gained back their popularity completely after returning from the army. I’m worried I’ll go through the same thing when I come back. Kim Jong Min, Chun Myung Hoon, No Yoo Min, Lee Sung Jin and more have not been able to get used to the variety programs. People have been saying that they’re not as good as they used to be.”
Lee Kyung Kyu, the MC, advised him, “Just be more carefree. You work way too hard. On Strong Heart, you work so hard. If you work this hard, you’ll have nothing to do when you come back.”
That is some good advice. It seems like Leeteuk stresses himself out with variety programs. I find his witty comments funnier than things he prepares.
For once, I agree with allkpop - Leeteuk needs to take a deep breath and relax a bit - for the sake of his health, if nothing else.
