[FULL TRANS] 160825 Beijing Youth Weekly Magazine – Hangeng Wants to Perform with Super Junior as 13


Q:  The fans are hoping for Super Junior to be together again. Is there a possibility for all 13 members to reunite for a performance?

A: I would like to as well. Just like last year, it was the 10th anniversary. I gave Mr. Long hyung a call and I called Leeteuk as well. I told him that it’s been 10 years and I would like everyone in Super Junior to release an EP together, and after this EP album is released, we’d do half a year of activities, not for anything else, other than to just commemorate that we’ve been together for 10 years. In the end, it didn’t happen because we couldn’t work out our schedules. This is also something that I have been regretting.

It’s been 10 years since I have debuted with the members, so I really wanted to do something. That’s why I wanted to do such an outrageous concert (of all 13 members coming back together). I went over to Korea over the new-year period and I had a meal with Heechul and some friends. During the dinner, I called Leeteuk and Kangin to tell them about my idea and everyone shared my thoughts of regrouping and doing the concert. We even told our managers and asked the company but they were too busy, which was a shame.

At the end of 2009, after debuting for 4 years in Korea, Hangeng returned to China after terminating his contract.

Hangeng’s contract with his previous company was declared null and void because of some “slave agreements.” Following the exposure of some of the unfair terms and conditions, Korea’s law on entertainment companies’ unfair contracts were reviewed and became strict. It is not an exaggeration to say that Hangeng’s lawsuit improved the law (regarding slave contracts in) Korea. Many celebrities got better treatment and were promoted well because of his lawsuit.

Hangeng rarely mentioned that matter (lawsuit) and also the group he was in previously, his bandmates, and his Korean friends. But on November 6, 2015, the 10th anniversary of of his debut, he posted pictures of him in his group (Super Junior).

Hangeng’s 10 years, from being SUPER JUNIOR’s Chinese member and Super Junior M’s leader Hankyung, to singer and actor Hangeng — those memories full of affections were awaken.

Time is like bitter medicine. It made us forget the pain, yet remember the beauty of yesteryears. Time-to-time, there will be photos of Hangeng and his past bandmates together. In one of his activities in China, Hangeng and Choi Siwon were on the same stage. They shook hands and hugged. The scene was just like that time when they appeared on <Happy Camp>.

As the 2 of them were the closest in the group, Hangeng and Kim Heechul’s friendship was always strong. From time-to-time their photos together will appear and it never failed to make fans excited for a long time.

Hangeng revealed in an interview that no matter what, he will be still be friends with his past group mates. He also mentioned that he tried hard to reunite with them for their 10th anniversary but nothing worked out in the end. We do not know whether fans will be able to see Super Junior as 13 again, but at least like his fans, Hangeng is also looking forward to that day.

Super Junior’s former member Han Geng has publicly expressed his gratitude towards SM Entertainment founder Lee Soo Man in a touching speech.

On April 9, both Han Geng and Lee Soo Man attended the 16th Top Chinese Music Awards in Shenzhen, China. Han Geng received the Best Male Singeraward that night, and during his acceptance speech, he thanks his fans and staff for all their support.

He goes on to say, “I’m especially grateful to Lee Soo Man. He is the reason I am on this stage, because he led me on the path to becoming a singer.”

“If it wasn’t for Lee Soo Man, I wouldn’t be on this stage right now as a singer. I would like to take this chance to thank him,” Han Geng says, and then bows.

Han Geng debuted as a member of Super Junior in 2005, and left the group in 2009 after filing a lawsuit against SM Entertainment, citing the agency’s unlawful and discriminatory treatment. He has since become a hugely successful singer and actor in China.
