Super Juniors Yesung explained why he was the icon of bad luck on the May 24 episode of Radio Star.
During the episode, he started off by saying he had a side role in the group during their past promotions. There were times when other members appeared [on camera] during my parts of the song. I didnt even appear in the music video for our first album, he revealed.
Shindong and I always had side roles [in the group], but I actually became comfortable with it at some point, he added, to which the MCs encouraged him to have confidence.
He further continued, I enlisted in the military at the wrong time. Compared to the amount of money [Super Junior] had earned in eight years, they ended up making a lot more during the two years I was gone.
Fellow member Kyuhyun then called him the icon of bad luck in Super Junior, saying that the group became a hit in Japan while Yesung was in the army.
I wasnt there for their Japanese dome tour. Now that Im back, the other members have enlisted in the military. We havent been able to hold a concert for five years now, Yesung shared.
