All the Evidence why Eunhyuk is the Main Dancer of Super Junior
Eunhyuk of Super Junior is the stage name of Lee Hyuk-jae. He was born on April 4th, 1986, in Ilsan, Gyeonggi-do Province. His family had to go through difficult times financially while he was young. Growing up, he had a great interest in dance performances. His role models are Jackson Five’s Michael Jackson, HOT’s Jang Woo-hyuk, and controversial singer-dancer Yoo Seung-Jun.
Dance performance has always been his passion. He started a group called SRD (Song, Rap, and Dance) with his childhood friends Kim Junsu, Hwang Tae-jun, and Choi Min Seok. When he was a teenager, he registered for SM Entertainment Auditions. His first audition was unsuccessful, however, his second audition got him a chance to become an SM Entertainment trainee. He joined the agency as a trainee together with his childhood friend Junsu (TVXQ member) in 2000. He was placed in an R&B group along with Junsu and another trainee, Sungmin. In 2003 Junsu left the group and debuted as a member of TVXQ, while Eunhyuk and Sungmin were assigned to Super Junior 05, the first generation of Super Junior. He debuted on November 6th, 2005.
