    noooo he is going to cut off all the beautiful hair of his that he dyes constantly

    Yesung is personally my favorite member of super junior and i’m going to miss him so much when he goes into the military! :(

  • http://twitter.com/meowsica grace (✿◠‿◠)

    don’t care about him at all, but i appreciate the fact that he’s not throwing a damn parade about it like a certain fellow member…

    • http://twitter.com/CloudyChangjo Sofia ‘Jo’ Feng

      Agreed.

      Although it IS Leeteuk, so what less is to be expected from our ‘Special’ leader.

      Big grand ceremonies are more Leeteuk’s style, for Yesung, it would just be tacky^^

      Forever a Cloud ^~^

    I wonder how Super Junior will fare vocally when all of their vocalists are nearing their enlistment dates…

    • hapacalgirl

      actually the other two KRY members I think are the youngest so there will be quite a few suju departures before their enlistment day comes up and by then I think suju will be on an extended hiatus due to the sheer amount of members that wouyld be enlisted by that time.

      • Gaya_SB

        I wonder if they’ll try rushing one of them so that they aren’t both serving at the same time (Ryeowook and Kyuhyun are only a year apart, and Kyu’s a fast 88er). Though that would depend on how long SuJu stays together for.

          No not really. pll tend to forget about Sungmin. He has improved a lot. Plus they might be adding Zhou Mi and Henry to the group, and they are good vocalists too.

          • http://twitter.com/veria10 Veria

            Sungmin’s good but he’s no where near as good as KRY. I agree with Gaya that they’ll probably make Kyuhyun enlist with Ryeowook – not only are the two of them part of KRY but they’re also the main vocalists of SJM (with Zhou Mi). Sungmin really doesn’t add much to the group vocally compared to those four.

          • http://twitter.com/lillian23910 Sharon

            I know a lot of pll won’t agree with me, but the difference between Sungmin and KRY is small. He’s always so stable in live performances, and he has a really nice falsetto.

            The only thing he does not have going for him is that his voice is forgettable and not that distinct. I think if given the chance, he’s gonna surprise pll. He’s honestly more stable than even Kyuhyun.

            The gap between KRY and Sungmin is BIG. If you know some vocal pedagogy you won’t be saying this. And no he is not more stable than anyone in KRY, certainly not Kyuhyun, you have to look at vocally challenging songs for comparison.
            He lacks support and breath control, when he goes higher than A4 he strains, and he’s quite nasal as well.
            However I think he is pretty aware of his problems, because he talked about how he knows that his vocal technique isn’t good. So hopefully Yesung’s departure will be his motivation to improve.

          • http://twitter.com/lillian23910 Sharon

            Sorry, I did not clarify. Suju has been really busy lately. Last year, a lot of the performances suju just looked plain tired. They often skip dance steps and Kyuhyun’s voice has been breaking bc he is one of the busiest members.

            Sungmin has a schedule he can manage and good stamina on stage. he’s physically in good condition, which makes him able to perform better on stage. As long as he is given notes that he can hit, he will perform it well live.

            Kyu’s a great singer, but he’s exhausted, and its bound to affect his voice. It could also be the reason why suju is suddenly paying attention to their health and are working out. They know that their getting tired on stage and its becoming harder for them to execute the choreography.

            Plus most pll don’t know good vocal technique from bad ones. As long as singers don’t strain a lot of stage and don’t go completely off tune or break their voice, most pll won’t notice. Its why pop music doesn’t have exactly the best singers. You can have great vocal technique and a voice to die for, but if pll don’t like your songs then its useless.

          • Streby

            They probably will add the Super Junior M members to fill the void but what will they do when these guys all return in 2018 or whatever the estimate date is? Haha there would be enough to fill as cameramen, backup dancers and make up artists then!

          • http://twitter.com/lillian23910 Sharon

            LMAO, they can do that its not needed. Haneng and Kibum will never return to the group. So with the addition of Zhou Mi and Henry, they will be 13 again.

            They were 13 before, they can be 13 again.

  • tamtard

    As much as I appreciate the fact that Yesung is going quietly, I’m still disappointed that he is going the public service route. He’s perfectly healthy (or at least from what I know) so I don’t see why he isn’t doing active-duty service.

    • Jolyn

      He have a back problem since years ago and he was medically deemed unfit to go through the active-duty service.

      • tamtard

        Oooh never knew it was like that. They only people I knew had some sort of health issue were Kyuhyun and Heechul.

    • http://twitter.com/JM7228JW J-May 제메이©

      Yesung is diagnosed with herniated disc and has a kidney surgery years ago….

      • tamtard

        Ooooh gotcha. Well that’s why I said as far as I know. Never knew all this. Thanks for letting me know :)

  • Foxylady242

    I’ll miss Yesung!

  • Cherry Blossoms

    NOOO!!!!! Yesung is enlisting on my birthday!!! :(
    (wailing fangirl moment over)
    It kinda sucks to be a idol right now and nearing the enlistment age. K-netizens seem to be hating on every idol that enters the army. (especially those that do public service). I mean I can’t really say anything cause I don’t live in Korea nor do I understand the whole military situation.

  • shmall

    Two years without new material with his amazing voice :( It’s a shame SM indefinitely postponed that KRY album >:( Fortunately KyuHyun and Ryeowook are there to hold fort in the SJ super vocals department. Proud he will be going quietly and hoping for a healthy return!

    Yesung is my fav member (asides from Heechul) in SuJu and him enlisting sucks but I know he has to do it. Im going to miss him and look forward to the day he gets out. My only worry is that most SuJu members are older (some of them reaching the 30s) and I cant help but wonder how many years SuJu still has before they break up/retire. (dont attack me, I’m a hardcore ELF but I’m also a realist). I guess that’s why Yesung enlisting has such a huge impact on me. I cant help but wonder will there be a Super Junior for Yesung to come back to?

    On the plus side, Heechul gets out soon….yaaa babyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy <3
