With Leeteuk departing for the army (and shedding many tears along the way), the position of Super Junior leader has been left open for the taking. Some may argue that the position will be preserved for Leeteuk upon his return (after all, the group is mature enough to function without a leader). On the other hand, it is also interesting to speculate who might take the top job. Below are much reasonable and unreasonable arguments rejecting members before reaching my ultimate conclusion. And this may be completely off topic and insensitive but I wonder what Leeteuk would look like with a crew cut hahahaha.
If leadership was determined by age alone, then the logical answer to our question would be Yesung. However, if we were to consider the practicality of such an arrangement then Yesung fails; since Yesung is only 1 year younger than Leeteuk, he will be departing for military service before Leeteuk comes back. And while he strangely seems to be getting more and more attractive, I can’t get over the fact that he used to collect bugs for a hobby *ewwwww*.
Siwon seems like someone who, if given the chance, you would vote as school captain (who wouldn’t want that face representing their school?). However, he doesn’t really…talk much on TV … and is a bit too horny in concerts for my liking. Siwon also seems to be the great disappearing man of Super Junior with his acting commitments often conflicting with his Super Junior duties. It is not unusual to see Siwon absent from live performances or the dance scenes of some music videos (such as Super Junior M’s “Perfection”).
He’s a bit short (sorry) and his nun-chuck skills scare me. Actually, sometimes his stare alone just scares me…even in his woodland fairy get-up for Sexy, Free & Single.
Kangin appears to be a solid choice since he has already completed his military duty. However, his previous scandal and the fact that he was been absent from group activities for 2 years means that his popularity has declined. It wasn’t so long ago that he looked like someone’s dad, rather than a Kpop idol and don’t get me started on his current awkwardness on stage.
Sorry for all the fans out there but I don’t think he has the maturity to act as leader. But he has a beautiful face.
Oh Dear God. I shudder with fear at what would happen if Kyuhyun were to become leader. He would probably shade over everyone with his power, making the rest of the members cook his Ramen, polish his keyboards and giving him hand massages after hours of gaming.
I once recall Shindong saying that if he were to be in the centre of Super Junior, then the band would forever be known as a ‘fat group’. I agree with his statement.
And soo…we are left with Eunhyuk
I think that if Super Junior were to have a leader, it would be Eunhyuk (by default), and for the simple reason that he seems to be getting A LOT of attention lately. The turning point was the blonde hair in “Mr.Simple”, which I heard messed up some bias lists pretty badly. Nonetheless, if he is made leader then I hope he keeps his head deflated and ignore the comments that he only looks good when ‘hair covers his face’ or when ‘you can’t see his eyes’.
So who do you think the next leader will be? Or will there be none at all? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below 😀
opps…and I forgot to mention Ryeowook. Arghhh my bad…
