The story behind Choi Siwon’s trademark pose

On KBS 2TV’s ‘Seung Seung Jang Gu’ aired on June 22nd, Siwon was asked “What is your three fingers trademark gesture all about?” Siwon answered “It was before Super Junior debuted, when I went to Hong Kong to film and promote for a movie. We had to pose for the reporters to take photos when we introduce ourselves. But because I was young I felt very pressured and didn’t have that much confidence, so when I raise my hands to greet them my ring finger and pinky just didn’t come up properly.”

Siwon also said “When Leeteuk hyung saw that gesture, he made a big deal out of it by saying that it looks like a chicken’s feet and named it ‘chicken feet greeting’” this draws a lot of laughter from everyone.

“After that all of the members had fun teasing me about this… especially when fans give good responses. So now when I greet, I just use three fingers” He added while laughing.

He was also asked “I heard that when you throw your clothes into the basket you like to act like you are shooting basketball… Is that true?” “That is true,” He answered, laughing.

Along with Siwon of Super Junior, Jung Yong Hwa and Taecyeon (2pm) also appeared in this episode of ‘Seung Seung Jang Gu’

Super Junior Siwon’s Father is a Business President but…

Super Junior’s Choi Siwon talks about the rumor of him being an ‘Umchina’ or an ideal son on KBS2 Win Win that aired on the 22nd.

During the episode, Siwon was asked, “It is true that your father is the president of a Japanese trade company, but is it true that you have a helicopter at your house?” by the viewers.

After receiving this question, he seemed embarrassed as he started laughing out loud and explained “It is true that my father is the president of the Japanese trade company, but we do not have a helicopter”.

Because the MCs and the guests– 2PM’s Taecyeon, CN Blue’s Jung Yonghwa– started teasing Siwon, he seemed embarrassed and quickly passed the question it with a laugh.

When Kim Seungwoo stated, “I heard that you have a lot of talent in playing the drums” , Siwon replied by saying, “I never went to a class and I’ve never learned formally”, but then showed a great performance showing off his skills.

He demonstrated his stable acting skills in the recent SBS drama ‘Oh! My Lady’, allowing him to receive a lot of credit and was able to show off his entertainment skill with other idol group actors such Taecyeon and Jung Yonghwa on ‘Win Win’

Super Junior in Music Travel La La La (Preview +Messages)

아이돌의 음악과 인디의 음악이 만나는 이런 특별한 자리를 통해
서로 소통할 수 있도록 힘 써주신 "음악여행 라라라" 제작진께 감사드리고요
개인적으로 새별누나 목소리.. 참 좋다^^
리허설부터 방송까지 모든 시간들이 너무 즐거웠어요!
음악여행 라라라 사랑합니다.♥

너무 긴장해서 무슨말을 했는지 어떻게 노래를 했는지 모르겠어요.^^
함께 노래한 새별씨께 감사합니다.
어린 아이가 노래하면서 가슴이 콩닥콩닥 떨리는 느낌으로 음악을 하고 온 것 같아요

음악여행 라라라! 이번이 두번째 출연이었는데 새별누나와 함께 해서
더욱 뜻깊은 자리 였습니다.
좋은 분들과 좋은노래, 좋은 환경에서 노래 할 수 있어서
행복한 시간이었던거 같아요

학창시절에 저도 밴드 생활을 했었는데 이번에 밴드연주에 맞춰 노래를 하다보니
예전의 추억을 떠올릴 수 있어서 너무 좋았고요.
앞으로도 이런 특별한 인연과 무대가 또 있었으면 좋겠습니다.

< 동해>
아이돌 댄스그룹 이전에 가수라는 본연의 마음가짐으로 노래했습니다.
이렇게 장르를 벗어나 좋은 노래로 하나가 되어
함께 무대를 설 수 있어서 행복한 시간이었습니다.

Thanks to the staffs at “Music Trip Lalala” for making it possible for idol music and indie music to communicate together.
Personally Saebyul noona’s voice… is very nice^^
Everything was fun starting with the rehearsal to the filming.
I love you “Music Trip Lalala♥.”

I was so nervous that I don’t remember what I said and sang.^^
Thanks to Saebyul who sang with us.
I felt like a child who was so nervous while singing.

Music Trip Lalala! This was our second appearance.
It was more meaningful as we were with Saebyul noona.
It was happy time being able to be with nice people, good music and atmosphere.

In my teens, I was in a band. Being able to sing with the band music made me think about my old memories which was very nice.
I hope there’s another chance for us to be on a stage like this

I had the mindset of being a singer first and not as a idol dance group when I sang.
It was fun becoming one with good music, leaving genres behind and to stand on the stage together.

Yonghwa, Siwon and Taecyeon share honest stories on Win Win

Three handsome actor-idols made guest appearances on the June 22nd episode of Win Win - CNBLUE’s Jung Yonghwa2PM’s Ok Taecyeon, and Super Junior’s Choi Siwon. These three idols expressed their feelings about their recent turn into acting.
Jung Yonghwa expressed his sadness towards people’s biased perspectives of him comparing his character from the hit drama You’re Beautiful with his singing debut in CNBLUE. A lot of netizens poured out biting criticisms.
Yonghwa shared, “I was worried by the character’s image from the drama. First of all, the character that I played out in the drama has a harmless image that doesn’t call out to antis. Ever since then, I tried my best to break this biased view. However, I was sad to see the negative responses from netizens. I didn’t get scarred while I was filming for You’re Beautiful, but it hurt a bit to see me get bashed upon when I started doing something that I’ve always wanted to do, singing.”
Later he added, “I started to wonder why I had to face these criticisms as a singer. But as time progressed, all of the harsh words just made me stronger.”
Meanwhile, Taecyeon expressed his feelings about his acting debut throughCinderella’s Sister. He honestly admitted, “I am quite the timid type, so I was scared about the whole acting thing. To win against my fears, I diligently practiced,” he continued, “I was scared because whenever idol stars start acting, there is a lot of bias that comes along with it. That’s why at first I didn’t really want to act.”
He later said, “Thankfully, a lot of people were supportive. Moon Geun Young noona taught me a lot.” Taecyeon also revealed that Nichkhun helped play out Moon Geun Young’s role as Goo Eun Jo while practicing the script, “Nichkhun kinda resembles Moon Geun Young. We (2pm members) even call him Moon Geun Young.”
On the other hand, Siwon cleared up rumors about rumors of his rich background and his father owning a helicopter. He confessed, “Helicopter? My father does work for a trading company in Japan but doesn’t own a helicopter.” Siwon started to fidget and didn’t know how to respond to his ‘profile’ as a rich family’s son.
As the show went on, Siwon showed off his drumming skills, displaying his talented charm.
