Kim Heechul 김희철 is a member of Super Junior.
Heecehul was born on Sunday, July 10, 1983, in Hoengseong, Gangwon-do.
Like fellow member Leeteuk, Heechul was born in the Chinese Year of the Pig. They’re both 179 cm or 5'10½" tall. Leeteuk, Heechul, and Ryeowook were all born under the star sign of Cancer. Heechul and Yesung’s blood type is AB.
Heechul studied at Chungwoon University, the same as Yesung, and Eunhyuk. He also attended Sangjin University and Wonju Technical High School. Heechul, Leeteuk, Yesung, Kangin, Shindong, Sungmin, Eunhyuk, Donghae, and Kyuhyun speak Japanese. All of the members can speak some Mandarin. Heechul’s older sister is named Kim Heejin. His mother owns a wine store.
Heechul decided to audition for SM Entertainment after coming across the company while surfing the web. He was late for his audition but was recruited at first glance. He almost debuted in a group called Four Seasons before being put into Super Junior. The other members of Four Seasons were Kangin, DBSK’s Yunho, and JYJ’s Jaejoong. Heechul was “winter.” He made his acting debut in 2005, on the KBC drama “Banolim 2.” He’s a member of the sub-unit Super Junior-T. He’s also a member of M&D along with Jungmo from TRAX. He’s the main host of the variety show “Lipstick Prince,” which premiered on December 1, 2016. He stepped in to co-host “Weekly Idol” while comedian Jung Hyungdon was sick and unable to host.
Heechul plays the drums. His favorite foods are kimchi fried rice and eggs. He likes to play videogames, write poems, and write fairy tales. He used to have a Russian blue cat named Yamchae. It was given to him by fans, but it ran away while he was away. Time and punctuality are important to him; he doesn’t want for someone for longer than ten minutes. He cares a lot about his image and doesn’t even want to blink in front of the cameras.
Heechul completed his mandatory military service from September 1, 2011, to August 30, 2013.
Once, Heechul and JYJ’s Jaejoong fought over a hamburger. They were rookies and didn’t have much income at the time, and a burger was very expensive at the time. Heechul was very hungry but had to step away, and he left the burger on the table. When he returned, the burger was gone. Jaejoong had taken it and left a note apologizing to the burger’s owner. At the time, Jaejoong didn’t have a cell phone, so Heechul searched for him everywhere. Finally discussing it years later on a variety show, they made up.
Heecehul says that he’s good-looking, smart, and talented, but no one’s perfect, which is why he has a bad temper.
