Super Junior’s Heechul and His Pretty Face
In the K-Pop industry, it’s pretty common to see our male idols cross-dressing as females. Even though it is just for fun, sometimes it makes us realize that some male idols are suitable to wear female dresses and hair, not to mention their beautiful skin and facial look. One male idol that is famous for his cross-dressing and his pretty face is none other than Super Junior’s Heechul.
Kim Hee-chul is known to be a direct person and often hosts various shows because of his MC-ing skill. Ever since he was debuted with the other Super Junior members in 2006, he has also been known for his pretty face. He has appeared as a woman many times and slew each of them. What does he look like when he dresses like a woman, though? In this article, Channel-Korea will give you all the details and photos of Heechul’s appearances as a woman.
Appeared as A Girl with Super Junior Members
The most phenomenal look from Heechul is when he dressed up as SNSD’s Jessica. He even called himself as Hee-sica. His first appearance as Hee-sica was on SBS’s variety show Intimate Note, when Super Junior became the guests in April, 2009. It was a show to bring artists who are awkward with each other to play games as a couple and become closer. There were four target members: Eunhyuk, Heechul, Kangin, and Sungmin. The four of them were asked to dress as girls and present themselves. Eunhyuk showed up as a woman from Shanghai, Eunja; Sungmin as a ‘bad-ass’ 12-year-old girl, Sungsoon; Heechul as Girls’ Junior’s Hee-sica, and Kangin as Fedor’s girlfriend, Kajuski, from Russia. They performed SNSD’s Gee and their own hit song, Sorry Sorry.
Super Junior-T – Rokkugo Music Video
Even a couple of years before Hee-sica appeared, Heechul had appeared dressed as a lady in 2007. He also appeared as a girl on Super Junior-T’s (Super Junior’s sub-unit) music video, Rokkugo. He acted as a girl who had fallen for other members.

Drama Parody Goong-T
Super Junior-T members also made a drama parody of Goong (as known as Princess Hours), named Goong T. The cast were Sungmin as Heebin (Queen Chungdam), Leeteuk as Kind Prince (also the secret son), Eunhyuk as Bad Prince (Heebin’s son), Heechul as Lady Jini (also Eunhyuk’s Fiance), Kangin as Eunuch Kang, and Shindong as Bad Prince’s Friend with no existence.
In the story, Lady Jini is engaged to Prince Eunhyuk and supposed to marry him. However, she doesn’t actually like him and falls for Prince Leeteuk from the first time they meet. While getting mesmerized by Price Leeteuk’s appearance, Lady Jini literally falls off of the balcony and Prince Leeteuk, who sees her falling, heroically catches her. Lady Jini then invites him for dinner at her house as a thanks gift. They end up becoming a couple secretly before the disaster comes. You can watch the full drama parody below.
