Mistaken Identity: Super Junior

September 17, 2008 at 9:00 am 37 comments

If Big Bang was confusing, Super Junior was a colossal headache. 

Keeping tabs on 5 people was hard enough, but 13?! That’s like reaching the advanced level in fangirliness.

Though some of the boys stood out, for a long time, I was referring to everyone by nicknames, a lot of them derived from their variety show Exploring the Human Body.

Lee Teuk – The leader

Heechul – EVERYONE knows who Heechul is. But seriously, the first time I saw him, I thought he was a girl.

Kangin – Just like everyone knows who Heechul is, EVERYONE knows who Kangin is.

HanKyung – The Chinese one

Kibum – The American one

Yesung – The grasshopper (remember that episode with DBSK where they were testing how high they could jump? Yesung had some pretty hilarious results)

Shindong – The fat one

Sungmin – The really cute one

Eunhyuk – The goat (remember the laughing gas episode where they tried to get a goat to cooperate with them, but then Eunhyuk eventually took over the goat’s role of tickling everyone?)

Siwon – The horse. Hahahahahaha. Anyone who’s a Super Junior fan knows why.

Ryeowook – The one with the heel lifts

Donghae – Honestly, I didn’t have a nickname for him. He was one of the members who would pop up, and I’d be like, “Who are you again? Where did you come from?”

Kyuhyun – See “Donghae”

And then Super Junior added more members for Super Junior-M. Ahhhhh!!! More memorization! Back to the flash cards.

Henry – The violin player

Zhou Mi – The ugly one

PS. For the longest time, I thought Sungmin and Lee Teuk were the same person. It’s an honest mistake.

  • 2. kiirohana  |  September 17, 2008 at 11:13 am

    calling mimi the ugly one is kinda…. hehe…
    anyways… i agree… though dongahe is actually one of my favorites now… i was like “who are you” before… him and kyu are the last i recognized….

    I called wookie cheeckbones *clearly
    hyukie—porn guy…. hahahaha i think you should know the reason haha

    kibum…. his smile :D….. actually i started remembering fishy because of kihae and eunhae… hahaha

    yesung— i seriously didn’t notice him until i heard the cry song… yes… i was like listening to the song and heard the wonderful voice then looked and said… who the hell are you… after that… he was named… the best voice of suju for me hehe

    and lastly i call shiwon— the one that looks like the other guy in korean dramas… you know the one who likes the lead girl but is not the lead guy….

  • 3. kiirohana  |  September 17, 2008 at 11:15 am

    * i meant the KRY song…. and sorry for the long comment… it’s just so fun to share this haha

  • 4. leonger  |  September 17, 2008 at 12:07 pm

    haha! oh yea. but mine was donghae and kyuhyun that i was messed up with. ahha! and siwon and hankyung. LOL!
    i saw them first time in happiness mv, so my impression was:
    teukkie – the flower boy
    heechul – the dark eyerings one. LOL!
    shindong – the fat one, the small dumb bells
    siwon – HOT!
    sungmin – cute, huggies!
    ryeowook – another cute one, nice voice
    yesung – edmund!! ahah! fyi, yesung with the looks in happiness mv look TOTALLY like my classmate. everyone in my class says that. haha!
    the rest didn stand out. LOL!

    as for hankyung, i first saw him in suju m U mv. and i was like CHIAKI!! haha! if you watch nodame cantabile, you would know who chiaki is. LOL!

    opps! thats a long one. LOL!

  • 5. Yaelni  |  September 17, 2008 at 11:04 pm

    haha! me too! i thought they were the same ppl or the other in Don’t Don


  • 6. c.y.  |  September 18, 2008 at 1:43 am

    i use to call donghae ‘fishy’ or just simply ‘fish’ because of his nickname. and kyuhyun was always and still is ‘Q’. Eunhyuk use the ‘monkey looking one’ and kangin was ‘the bulky guy’– haha which i find is suitable for him ^^

    maybe i’ve been a fan for too long– i don’t think sungmin and leeteuk look alike at all. -_-
    but all fans have their own opinions. ^^

  • 7. Jolyin  |  September 18, 2008 at 3:23 am

    hhhhhhhhhhhhhh i knew heechul befor i know super junior and when i saw the u mv i couldn’t bleive that was him he was so beautiful and then shindong the fat one i knew siwon couse he always with heechul but didn’t like intel i watched full house XD then donghea every time i saw him poping out in FH i was like who r u ? one of the staf members? kyuhyun was the last person i knew and i always mix him and donghae yesung the cute guy with glasses but without them i couldn’t recognize him and thought he was ugly and fat ithought him and kanging XD were the same person now i like them both
    sungmin and ryeowok didn’t know who were they intel i watched happiness and i thought they were the same person

  • 8. clear_monday @ lj  |  September 18, 2008 at 5:31 pm


    You dare call MiMi ugly? BLEH.

    I don’t know, I honestly don’t remember when I first found out about SJ… It seems like forever *_*

  • 9. TJ  |  September 18, 2008 at 6:34 pm

    i even got dbsk mixed up when i first started. I used to get Micky and Junsu mixed up :S

    As for super junior i got donghae and eunhyuk mixed up i have no idea how and also yesung and someone i cant remember… its funny now that i look back and now they are TOTALLY DIFFERENT PEOPLE the first people i could tell apart was kibum, kangin and shindong. I guess it wasnt so much the faces for me but the names! i couldnt remember them. im bad with names.

    i also used to get gdragon and taeyang mixed up and seungri and daesung the only one i knew was TOP coz hes special 😀
    And finally in f.t island it was jonghun and wonbin and SOMETIMES jaejin and minhwan

  • 10. haneulnophi  |  October 3, 2008 at 3:50 pm

    i nicknamed the suju boys from their movie…

    i used to decribed them from their hair too, but since they change their hair constantly… it’s even more confusing! LOL

  • 11. Macnut  |  October 22, 2008 at 12:40 am

    zhou mi isn’t that ugly . just his hair is bad. you should see his pre-debut pics. he looks good then.

    also there are a couple of people in suju that are uglier than him.

    but yeah. it took me a while to know their knows. but their singing voices are pretty easy to recognize

  • 13. Linzer  |  February 15, 2009 at 9:45 pm

    Aw I think Zhou Mi is cute….
    Eunhyuk really looks like a monkey but a cute one!

  • 14. sungmin09  |  August 25, 2009 at 11:42 pm

    yeah, you got that right. but somehow and very luckily, i did it in remembering ALL 13!!! YAY!!!
    but i may get a few confused with each other, but at least i know all of their names.


    ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥SUNGMIN IS THE CUTE ONE!!!!!!♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

  • 15. dominoSH  |  September 6, 2009 at 11:07 pm

    i have to say i only recognised shindong & heechul when i first saw suju. though i dont know their names at that time xD

  • 16. Feari  |  October 24, 2009 at 8:00 pm

    personnally i think that Leeteuk is the cutest one, i love how he act and how he laugh!!
    all the other looks the same to me
    im sorry

  • 17. Kuraithevision  |  November 8, 2009 at 4:34 pm

    Lol I still havent bothered with nicknames…as it is a lot of them look alike…a few days back i got a pencil and paper and started looking up pics and songs to see who was who…i think the only ones i can point out are kangin, shindong, heechul (who i call yakuza boy coz of one of his pics…he looked like a typical manga yakuza character…), kyuhyun (coz he looks like a friend of mine – as well as henry lau..he also looks like one of my friends..) and donghae….the others i had trouble with…i pretty much got leeteuk and sungmin mixed up (blame their hairstyles) kyu hyun and ryeowook, and yesung and siwon all confused.
    and zhou mi is cute…in my opinion…either way…they are all hot…cept for shindong…he reminds me of my brother o.o

  • 18. Kuraithevision  |  November 8, 2009 at 4:37 pm

    oh wait i got a name wrong…eunhyuk looks like my friend….kyuhyun doesnt…i get him mixed up with ryeowook and hankyeng and kyuhyun mixed up…again…coz of the hair styles in dont don.

  • 19. SungH33  |  January 3, 2010 at 12:30 am

    LMAO finally someone agrees with me that zhoumi is ugly (no offense)

    wen i first saw them it was like really confusing LOL
    but after stalking them i could tell them apart from voices….
    (yea i stalk them <3)

  • 20. Jules  |  January 24, 2010 at 12:56 pm

    Ugly is an opinion.. and a really rude one, actually. And also, in this case, a wrong one. Zhou Mi isn’t ugly at all. o_O

    And they don’t look anything like each other, to me… I can easily tell them apart. They have totally different facial features and expressions, and some might have had similar hair in the past, but it’s not hard to tell them apart. Of course, people who say Zhou Mi is “ugly” must not have very good eyesight anyway… maybe you should go try for glasses? Or if you already have them, something’s obviously still wrong.

  • 21. Mey  |  January 24, 2010 at 12:59 pm

    I hate how people will make rude comments about some of them. I mean, I know how you might think some are cute or not, but calling them ‘ugly’?
    Hmm, a little immature.
    Just keep the rude comments to yourselves.

  • 22. char  |  January 26, 2010 at 2:50 am

    ^lol… your nicknames are hilarious… ^_^

    that part about ZM was kinda mean [but still funny!] haha.. i’m sure you don’t mean any harm.. my sisters & I always thought he kinda looks like a cross between Eunhyuk & Leeteuk.. [oh well, i guess another opinion]

    thanks for this funny blog ^_^,

  • 23. CherryChocol8  |  February 13, 2010 at 5:35 pm

    ^^ I know Suju for about 2 years almost =P
    I think I’m one of the very few people to notice YeSung from the beginning! XD I started off recognizing YeSung, KangIn and ShinDong.. ^^ I was confused with LeeTeuk/SungMin and KyuHyun/SiWon/DongHae.. EunHyuk and HeeChul were easy to remember as well.. KiBum, RyeoWook and HanKyung I just remembered (don’t know when exactly X’D).. I remember the last to recognize and remember by name was KyuHyun and SiWon XD
    =P I never used any nicknames while trying to remember their names ^^
    When ZhouMi and Henry joined Suju M I really thought ZhouMi looked like LeeTeuk and Henry like YeSung! XD
    Long comment! ^^” by the way, my fave suju member is YeSung! 😉

  • 24. Araël  |  February 19, 2010 at 6:03 am

    Heechul: Cinderella, Prince(ss) smirk
    Hankyung: sweet Chinese guy who doesn’t say a lot but we keep loving him!

    Kangin: I think he is a happy guy who is a good company.
    Shindong: The guy who smiles a lot and gives me the feeling that I’m looking at a happy children’s program.
    Sungmin: Handsome, cute, always loved by girls, the guy who once had pink hair.
    Eunhyuk: Young (in comparison with some other Sujumembers of course, cause he’s older than me), monkey-man,good dancer but easy to fool.
    Donghae: He has a beautiful smile! I don’t have a lot to say about him. He’s just there and I just love him, simple as that.
    Siwon: Gestureman!!! lol
    Ryeowook: Cute, young and innocent!
    Kibum: Quit silent but he has class.
    Kyuhyun: Silent, bu that makes him mysterious and beautiful in his own way.

  • 26. Two_2rtleS  |  June 6, 2010 at 3:54 am

    It’s hardhardhardhardhard to remember their faces, eventhough later on it will be easier! It’s hard to remember because their numbers are more than one soccer team! They should use soccer t-shirt with individual numbers and their own names on the back of it!!!^^

    i remember their names but not their faces…

    (from the easiest to hardest to recognise)

    (for me ^^)

    Wookie-I always find him first, I always thought that he’s cute with those cheekbones

    Eunhyuk-gummy smile and red lips ^^

    Shindong-Of course… ; p

    Siwon-well, he’s reallyreally big and he has those dimples

    Leeteuk-he has the cute smile and dimples

    Yesung-he’s reallyreally cute right? Those eyes and cheeks!!!

    Kyuhyun-I agree that he is the most handsome ^^

    Heechul-skinny, large eyes, Mistaken him for a girl sometimes

    Kangin-Big, hyperactive ^^

    KiBum-quiet, atractive

    Hankyung-Chinese version of Clay Aiken? (when his hair is blonde and spiky)

    Donghae-hard to recognise him, he’s way older than me but I think that he could be my littlebro

    Sungmin-Cute, but don’t know why, he’s the hardest to recognise

    *additional members

    Henry-He’s reallyreally cute, easy to find, His dimples is cute and he looks reallyreally nice

    Zhou mi-tall, with his square jaw, I think he’s not bad though. But he is not ugly at all

  • 27. JanEH  |  June 16, 2010 at 11:39 pm

    Really?? You didn’t recognize Kyuhyun? he was the first one I could really recognize first. When I first saw him my jaw dropped (Literally) so I remembered him instantly. The hardest ones for me to remember who they were were Kibum and Leeteuk >.> I used to Mess up Siwon and HanKyung thinking they were each other and I messed up Sungmin and Yesung a lot too..Don’t ask me why I have no idea myself.

  • 28. Meg  |  July 26, 2010 at 9:37 pm

    i’ve just now found out about super junior. i think, like, a week ago.
    this is how it went:
    day 1: “omg… these guys are so gay…”
    day 2: “but… they’re so cute…”
    day 3: this is when i started trying to learn the names of my favorite ones. leeteuk, kyuhyun, and kibum.
    day 4: realizing there were 13 members of super junior; not to mention suju m, suju h, and suju t (which REALLY confused me.)

    by the time i really got the memorization of faces down, there names were as so:

    leeteuk – the adorable smile
    kibum – the adorable nose
    heechul – the one that i SWORE was a girl
    kyuhyun – the pretty voice 🙂
    siwon – the one i didn’t like much
    sungmin and yesung – “wait, which one is that again?”
    donghae – the one i kept mistaking for siwon
    shindong – the fat one (don’t you just love how that’s the thing that stands out about him? i love him, though :D)
    eunhyuk – wait, who are you?
    zhoui mi – are you eunhyuk??
    kangin – too cute 🙂
    ryeowook – the one with the REALLYREALLY high voice
    hankyung – who the heck are you???

    cuz see, i saw “no other” and then i saw all their other music videos, not knowing what order they go in… so i thought they added and dropped members all the time hahaha. i understand things better now. and heechul has turned out to be one of my favorites 🙂

  • 29. PookieCutie  |  August 4, 2010 at 6:17 pm

    Ryeowook should have been the cute one!And Heechul really made me think that shes a girl in the “u” ktv.I asked my sister that why is sj have a girl on there?Lol..My bro said that everyone looked gay on that ktv. -^.^-

  • 30. A.T.  |  August 18, 2010 at 5:14 pm

    Super Junior is NOT gay. What they are doing, like kissing each other, is just fan service. And please stop saying Zhou Mi is ugly, you think you’re perfect yourself?

  • 31. EunKyuHae  |  August 18, 2010 at 8:05 pm


    But woow! I also remember when I first saw SuJu..
    I mean O-M-F-G! 15 freakin dudes to remember xD hahah
    when I saw Cooking? Cooking! I ALWAYS messed up Kangin & Yesung… I think…

    but it was kinda easy to remember them coz I right away watched Full House first, then Adonis Camp & then EHB etc..
    & to easily remember them we (me n my sis) did the easy way first… we first googled a pic of the whole group together & then we googled each persons name from Leeteuk to Henry ^^
    ofc Henry & mimi was easiest xD

    Henry: Awkward Cuteness ♥ Love him!
    Zhoumi: GENTLEMAN MIMI! If you watched Happy Camp, you'd know what I'm talking about. And uh, it's kinda rude to call him ugly. And you call yourself a fan of SuJu?

  • 36. Don't take the nickname op gave Zhoumi so seriously!!!  |  October 16, 2011 at 7:20 pm

    Guys I understand why some of you are getting upset over the op calling Zhoumi “the ugly one” but she doesn’t mean it maliciously. It’s only a means of remembering who he is. Sure it may not be the nicest thing to say but everyone has their own individual taste in guys. He who is ugly in the eyes of girl #1 may be a sexy god in the eyes of girl #2, so let’s not bash her, alright? Just because you’re a fan of a group doesn’t mean you have to force yourself into thinking someone who isn’t your type in there is like “ohhotdayumhe’ssexy”. Zhoumi is actually pretty damn sexy to me and he’s freaking awesome but to be honest, the nickname the op gave him made me giggle like “lolwtf she called him ugly….”.

  • 37. Malificent  |  October 20, 2014 at 1:04 am

    donghae and kyuhyun are just random male? Wow and you dare to call zhoumi ugly and shindong fat too.
    F*cking rude.
    You must be really perfect???? Watch what you say, or in this case, you write.
