Kim Hee-chul (born July 10, 1983), also credited as Heechul, is a Korean pop singer, actor, presenter, and a member of the super boy band Super Junior. Fans often recognize him as the flower of Super Junior, and his fans became officially known as Kkochip (꽃잎, “petals”).[1]

Pre-Super Junior

He was first discovered at Starlight Casting System 2002. Before he officially debuted as a member of Super Junior, he was put into a group called “Four Seasons” with Kangin from Super Junior, and Jaejoong and Yunho from TVXQ. They were to represent the four seasons of the year. The prospective group never saw the light when two members, Jaejoong and Yunho, debuted in 2003 with TVXQ. He still maintains a close friendship with Yunho. He made his first appearance on TV starring in the teen drama “Banolim 2”. He also appeared on television through modeling, acting, and VJing.
Official Debut

On November 6, 2005, Kim Heechul officially debuted on SBS “Inki Gayo” performing Super Junior’s first single “TWINS (Knock Out)”.

Apart from singing, he also began to appear on numerous variety shows such as Vitamin, Sponge, Xman and Love Letter, and also had one of the leading roles in the sitcom “Rainbow Romance”. He can also be seen in advertisements for various Korean brands. He has also been a substitute MC for Andy of Shinhwa on SBS “Inki Gayo” on numerous occasions.

On August 10, 2006, Kim Heechul was involved in a car accident while heading back to Seoul from Mokpo, where he attended fellow Super Junior member Lee Donghae’s father’s funeral. The tires malfunctioned while his car attempted to switch lanes. From this accident, he fractured his femur and sustained several other injuries. He was advised to stop all activities for a period of 3 months.

He was discharged from the hospital in September, but he did his comeback on November 25 in the MKMF Awards.

He was active again with his group Super Junior and a sub-group, Super Junior-T that debuted February 23, 2007, with the Trot “teuroteu” single “Rokuko!!!” (65 로꾸거; [KoKuRo (backwards) spelled backwards]) while he still had a few rods in his leg. He started performing with Super Junior as a whole (whose dance routines are more strenuous than those of Super Junior-T’s) in late April and early May. Heechul will also be a permanent host for SBS “Inki Gayo” with Korean actor Jang Geun Suk starting February 25, 2007. The remaining rods were removed in 2008.

In 2007, Super Junior released their second album Don’t Don, they did the “Super Show” tour and recorded their first movie “Attack on the Pin-Up Boys”. He also starred in a new drama called “Golden Bride”.

In 2008, he continued with Super Junior: they visited Japan, did their second photobook “Boys at City Season 2″ (at Tokyo) and the gorgeous “Super Show Encore”, while he was preparing to take on a role in the musical “Xanadu”. He underwent surgery again to remove the remaining rods in his leg and started with the musical.

Then he was involved in various TV programs like “Joahseo, Good Daddy” with F.T. Island’s Lee Hong Ki and three other celebrities, as well as “Band of Brothers” with Kang-in, and Jungmo and Jay (last two from “The TRAX”).

In 2009, Super Junior recorded their 3rd album and they started performing on TV again, making a stop to do the “Super Show II”.

Currently, Heechul is taking part in a new drama “I Love You Ten Million Times”, and also appearing in a few TV shows as guest, such as “Oppa Band”.
Television and acting career

Like bandmate Kibum, Heechul made his first television appearance as an actor before the debut of Super Junior. He starred in the 2005 teen drama, Sharp 2, which he acted alongside Kibum. Not long afterwards, Heechul appeared in an episode of Loveholic as a chef trainee. After the debut of Super Junior, Heechul teamed with Kibum again to star in the sixth season of Nonstop, alternatively known as Rainbow Romance. In 2006, Heechul starred as the supporting character Gong Min in Bad Family. In 2007, he starred in the popular family drama Golden Bride as Kim Young-soo.

Heechul is also a credible host. Before his music debut, Heechul started his hosting career by being a regular MC for the cable music show Show! Music Tank. Soon after the debut of Super Junior he switched to hosting SBS’s Popular Songs. He has also been a radio host of his own radio show, SBS Power FM Youngstreet along with Park Heebon, but the program ended in mid-2006. Aside from acting, singing, and hosting, Heechul also became an active participant in variety shows, making frequent appearances on Heroine 6, Vitamin, Sponge, X-man and Love Letter.

From September 9 to November 9, 2008, Heechul and Kang-in starred in the Korean version of the musical Xanadu, sharing the lead role Sonny. Auditions and casting picks was chosen in a process through reality television (To Be Kang-in and Heechul) to promote the musical.[2]

He was also on Good Daddies, as learning to be a good father and care for his “daughter” with four other celebrities including F.T. Island’s Lee Hong Ki and at “Band of Brothers” (with kangin, jungmo and jay) paying tribute to famous and different bands doing their own showcase at the end of the program.

Currently, he’s taking part in a new drama “Loving You a Thousand Times” and also appearing as a guest in a few TV shows like “Oppa Band”.
Musical career

In October 2002, Heechul discovered SM Entertainment’s Starlight Casting System on a whim as he was researching on entertainment companies. Heechul and his friends traveled to Seoul to audition. As he was unfamiliar with the area, Heechul missed the open audition hours, but was casted anyway because of his beautiful appearance.

Along with Hero Jaejoong, U-Know Yunho, and future bandmate Kang-in, SM Entertainment placed them in a small project music group called Four Seasons, with each of the four members representing the four seasons of the year. The prospective group never came through; both Hero and U-Know were chosen to join another all-male singing group TVXQ, which debuted in December 2003. With two members gone, the idea of Four Seasons dropped. Heechul and Kang-in were then placed in Super Junior along with ten other trainees under the same company. This project group managed through well, and they debuted two years later in November 6, 2005 under the name Super Junior 05, the first generation of Super Junior.

In early 2006, SM Entertainment was beginning to recruit new members for the next Super Junior generation, Super Junior 06, with Heechul still as an undergraduate member of Super Junior. However, plans changed when the company added in a thirteenth member Kyuhyun, and the company declared a halt in forming future Super Junior generations. The group dropped the suffix “05″ and became officially credited as Super Junior. The re-polished group hit it big after they released their first CD single “U” the following summer in 2006, which became Super Junior’s most successful single in the music charts until the release of “Sorry, Sorry” in March 2009. However, setbacks occurred for the promotions of “U” in the latter half of the year when Heechul suffered a major injury from a car accident that occurred on August 10, 2006, when he was heading back to Seoul from Mokpo, where he went to attend the funeral of Donghae’s father. The tires malfunctioned while his car attempted to switch lanes. From this accident, he fractured five places on his left leg including his femur, knee, and ankle which required a 6-hour surgery and sustained several other injuries including a tear to his tongue which required stitches. He was advised to stop all activities for a period of twelve weeks. He was released from the hospital on September 13, 2006 and received out patient care. He returned to the hospital to have a second surgery to remove some of the iron rods in his leg on October 10 and briefly returned to work in late October to film the final three episodes of the MBC youth sitcom Rainbow Romance while still in a cast and wheelchair. It wasn’t until late December when Heechul officially returned to individual activities such as variety show appearances and hosting appearances.

In February 2007 he was able to perform on stage as a member of Super Junior-T, a six-piece trot-singing subgroup of Super Junior while still having a few rods in his leg. He started performing with Super Junior as a whole (whose dance routines are more strenuous than those of Super Junior-T) in late April and early May. The remaining rods were removed in 2008. Super Junior released their 3rd album in early 2009 and started with the “Super Show II”.
