Super Junior members talked about renewing their contract with SM Entertainment on “Knowing Bros”.
On this day, Kang Ho Dong asked the Super Junior members, who celebrated their 17th anniversary this year, “Did you think you would last 17 years?” To this, leader Leeteuk replied, “I thought that even if we lasted 7 years, it would be a lot, but now we are in our 17th year.” Eunhyuk mentioned the eventful process for Super Junior to reach this point, “We were a project group from the beginning.” Yesung added, “There were times when we took a break in the middle.”
To Seo Jang Hoon’s question, “How many times have you renewed your contract?”, Super Junior members responded, “This is the third time.” Lee Soo Geun asked, “Who is the one who usually said, ‘Let’s leave’?” Kim Heechul said, “As for me, since I’ve been in SM for a long time, I am the one who would say ‘I want to leave.’ Meanwhile, Siwon would say ‘I think I’d better start my own company.’”
Leeteuk added, “That’s right, other members are busy during the contract renewal season, but Siwon would say, ‘I’ll bring you 50 billion won.'” Kim Heechul continued, “If you ask Siwon, ‘Would you burn 50 billion for Super Junior?’, he will reply, ‘There are so many CEOs who invest in us.'”
Kang Ho Dong then asked, “Where does he get 50 billion won?”, and Eunhyuk, on behalf of Siwon, answered, “It can come out of Siwon’s piggy bank,” making everyone laugh.
Kang Ho Dong asked, “You meet as colleagues now, but aren’t you brothers and family? Do you talk about which Super Junior member to get married first?” In response, Leeteuk said, “Yes, we even talk about ‘who will get married and then come back’ and ‘who will go to the other world first’.”
Shindong revealed his wishes, “If I were to pass away while these guys were still there, I told them to hold a concert or party for me.” Leeteuk then warmed everyone’s heart by saying, “I said this to the members on our 17th anniversary. Let’s promote as Super Junior until we die.”
