Friends Since Elementary School
Eunhyuk and Junsu had already known each other since they were still very young. To be exact, they had already become friends in elementary school. It has been reported that Eunhyuk and Junsu used to attend the same elementary school, and continued their friendship until now. Eunhyuk once revealed that he has been Junsu’s classmate since their childhood.
Since they were still children, both of them had been dreaming of becoming a singer and dancer. During their elementary school days in Neunggok Elementary School, Eunhyuk and Junsu even created a dance crew named SRD, which stood for “Song Rap and Dance.” The dance crew consisted of Eunhyuk, Junsu, Choi Min-seok, and Hwang Tae-jun.
The dance crew was quite popular at that time, moreover, SRD even managed to appear in the local newspaper as well. Following SRD’s popularity, Eunhyuk and Junsu decided to attend the SM Entertainment audition together in 1999. Unfortunately, Eunhyuk failed the audition, while Junsu successfully made it. Nevertheless, Junsu continued to support him until the next audition took place the next year when Eunhyuk was finally able to join SM Entertainment as a trainee.
Even during their trainee days in SM Entertainment, both Eunhyuk and Junsu spent their time together and had their own struggles on the way of reaching their dream to become a singer. Since they were really close as friends, they made a promise to each other: not to drink alcohol and smoke. However, Junsu broke the promise by drinking alcohol. Their friendship, however, has proven to be a lot stronger, since regardless of the broken promise, Eunhyuk and Junsu are still good friends to this day.
Eunhyuk and Junsu are also famously known for doing silly things together. Since they were in the same agency in the past, Eunhyuk and Junsu were always looking for their victim while they were joking around. An example of their silly behavior is the time when they were disturbing Super Junior’s Leeteuk and Donghae. Another interesting fact about Eunhyuk and Junsu from their childhood memories is that both of them once joined a beauty contest where all of the contestants were a bunch of boys.
Let’s take a look at Eunhyuk and Junsu’s childhood and pre-debut photographs, here:
Still Supporting Each Other
Even though currently Eunhyuk and Junsu are busy with their own busy schedules and activities, they strive to always find a way to keep in touch. And also, when Junsu was experiencing an unpleasant time due to DBSK – JYJ and SM Entertainment’s controversy in the past, Eunhyuk was there to support and cheer him up.
Being able to stay in touch all the time seems to be the way they manage to maintain their close friendship. They even use social media platforms to stay in touch. On one occasion, they used Twitter to communicate with each other and share updates about each other’s lives. Through Twitter, Eunhyuk asked Junsu to meet up again and jokingly said that he should’ve paid their meal just like their last meet up. Meanwhile, Junsu also jokingly scoffed Eunhyuk and said that he should be the one paying the meal on their next meet up.
Through that simple communication, Eunhyuk and Junsu demonstrated how much they care about each other, and always taking time to meet up. What a remarkable friendship!
Eunhyuk Went To Junsu’s Drama Musical
One of the ways in which Eunhyuk is supporting his best friend is visiting him on his drama musical. At that time, Junsu took part in a drama musical with the title December. As a surprise and support, Eunhyuk attended the drama musical and watched his best friend’s performance as well.
Then Junsu expressed his feelings about Eunhyuk’s presence on his drama musical through a tweet. He wrote a gratitude tweet for having Eunhyuk as his best friend, even though he’d rather call him by his real name, Hyuk-jae instead of Eunhyuk. But still, whenever he is with Eunhyuk, it feels as though Junsu goes back to their elementary school moments together. Such touching words, right?
And also, Junsu posted a picture of himself along with Eunhyuk taken after the musical drama took place. Below is the photo of the two of them together.
Sweet Letter For His Best Friend
Not only they support each other, but Eunhyuk and Junsu also use other ways to show their care for each other. One such means is Junsu writing a sweet message to Eunhyuk after attending Junsu’s drama musical December. Junsu simply wrote a message on Twitter as a form of gratitude towards Eunhyuk.
“My best friend Hyuk-jae who came to watch the December performance yesterday. Even though currently he’s famously known as Eunhyuk, I’m still comfortable calling him Hyuk-jae.
My friend, even now when I’m with you, I feel like I went back to elementary school when I used to believe in Santa Claus. I always apologize and thank you.”
