Leeteuk’s Dating Rumor, Girlfriends, and His Thoughts on Marriage
There was a rumor in the past that he was dating SNSD’s Taeyeon. This rumor is not baseless, or without proof. A lot of fans said that they both have worn a matching item, which was an earring.
On Radio Star, he denied the rumor, by saying “I personally bought those bunny earrings. In act, I was the first to buy it. It was purely coincidental that she wore an identical piece.” But then, it was revealed that not only the earrings, but they have been seen wearing a matching necklace as well. So many fans assumed, that they were indeed dating in the past. What do you think?
He also has dated an ordinary girl in the past. He talked about that girl in one of the episodes of Strong Heart. He said that he saw this girl after he finished his schedule and fell in love at first sight with her. “I asked Shindong to get her number for me and I contacted her, saying that I like her and I wanted to meet and talk to her. She replied that because I’m a celebrity, she might be a bit uncomfortable. But I didn’t give up. I did a lot of things for her and I think it showed [my seriousness].”
“After that, we started a relationship but I couldn’t keep in contact with her for awhile until a week later, she asked me to watch a movie with her. Although, there was a risk of being discovered, since it was in a daylight, I didn’t care and went with her anyway. I even thought of giving up my career as an idol if she asked me to marry her. However, I happened to see on her cellphone a message from another famous celebrity. Later on, I found out that she was two timing me, and I fell into a 6 month slump.”
He also said that right before he went to the army, he dated for about a month, although he didn’t say much about his girlfriend “She was an actress, but we parted after the short month. She didn’t understand my busy schedule because I was working on Super Junior’s album promotions and concert.” He is now looking for the right person, and is thinking that now is not the right time for him to get married.
“These days people say it’s the 100 year-age, so the appropriate age to marry is around 43-45 years old. I don’t want someone too much younger than me, I’d like it to be someone with a deep heart, someone I can relate to. Maybe 4-8 years younger? Oh actually up to 9 years younger is okay.”
Leeteuk’s Plastic Surgery
Based on a photo above, which is a photo of him before debut, many fans were speculating that he got a job done to his face. People said that it seems that he got his eyes and nose done, but he never truly admitted it. He even said in JTBC’s White Swan that he had thought of getting plastic surgery but didn’t do it in the end.
On the show, he revealed that he felt his nose was too long and wanted to get some work done, so he went for a consultation. But, the doctor told him that that would be a big surgery, and they would have to cut between the muscle on his cheek and nose, that could affect his smile as well. After hearing that, he decided to forgo going under the knife.
Although he said that, many people still suspect him and say that his face has changed. What do you guys think? Do you think he’s just a normal handsome man, or did he get some job done? Let me know!
Despite him being the oldest member of the group, he doesn’t really look like it with those perfect figure and abs. He is known to have the best abs in the group, along with Siwon, Eunhyuk, and Donghae. He had showed his abs several times, like in Strong Heart, Law of The Jungle, photo-shoot, and of course in concert. He received a lot of praise for being able to work hard to get that toned body, which we all know is not easy.
But for now, let’s enjoy this! First, here he we will be showing what he’s got in Strong Heart, that has got so many girls amazed.
This is him ‘unintentionally’ taking off his shirt in Law of The Jungle because he had been attacked by ants when he was climbing the tree. He tried to get it off with help from the staff with no avail, leading him to take off his shirt off. Truthfully, it was a sight for sore eyes, and showed that he still got them.
His Gallbladder Inflammation Surgery
On July 24, 2018, Leeteuk was rushed to the hospital at dawn after experiencing severe abdominal pains. He then received an emergency surgery, and his pain was apparently caused by stones blocking the tube leading from his gallbladder to his small intestine. A condition diagnosed as acute cholecystitis (gallbladder inflammation).
SM Entertainment released a statement, “Today (July 24) at 5AM, Leeteuk went to the hospital due to severe abdominal pain, and he was diagnosed with acute cholecystitis. It was advised that immediate action be taken, so he safely underwent surgery today. He’s currently resting.”
Because of that, he will not be able to participate in any Super Junior’s activities for at least a week. The label added, “As the doctor recommended that he rest and because of the artist’s health coming first, the label and SJ has decided all his scheduled events, including the SMTown Live 2018 in Osaka, and everything in his schedule for the week have been canceled. We ask for your understanding, and we’ll be doing our best for Leeteuk’s fast recovery.”
We wish that he will get better soon!
