[SCAN] Men’s Uno HK: 

The story of how D&E began…

The story started 15 years ago,Donghae joined SM as a trainee.He could not get used to Seoul when he first arrived and there was no friends who he could rely on.He was on his own ,but he stuck on to his dream and worked hard towards achieving his goal.

Then,in the company canteen,he met Eunhyuk,at that time,neither of them knew they would be assigned to the same group,they only knew they were both new comers.

With Eunhyuk being witty and happy character,it made Donghae relax so much,and the two started became good friends and since then its already 15 years!

Eunhyuk: After so many years, we are still exactly the same like we first met,we are still so naughty,still so pure,still nothing has changed !the feeling is wonderful! 

After Eunhyuk finished,they looked at each other and smiled,from the eyes they exchanged a secret which only the two would know 

How D&E came out..

The impression that donghae and eunhyuk give to us are very different.

Donghae seems to be a hard working manly type while Eunhyuk is the joking playful type.

When they are together,the characters are so different,yet they are so compatible.It feels like Donghae has been influenced by Eunhyuk,changes slowly from a shy little boy to a humerous guy and at the same time Eunhyuk has been influenced by Donghae,gradually become more stable and reliable.

After this cross - influence,the chemistry between them is perfect.

When they first knew each other,they had already wanted to have a sub unit together,to have an album together,to perform together.However,after they became members of SJ,they had been so busy,so this thought had been put aside .

Then the story changed to 2011,when all the members were busily preparing for SS4, and were preparing for their own solos,Donghae suddenly thought “Is boring to perform on stage by myself,two people must be more fun,so I suggested to the company about performing together as a sub unit and the company agreed immediately.” 

Then their first product (Oppa Oppa) appeared,relaxing and fun song which was widely accepted by all fans and it set the rock base for Super Junior D&E.

Last year with their Japanese Album (Ride Me) and this year with their first Korean Album (The Beat Goes On) they have fulfilled their childhood dreams!

D&E “FRIENDS” …

In Korean culture, guys will address each other as ‘brothers’ and according to their age to decide who is the elder who is the  younger. 

Guys address each other as friends’ if they are same age, even is newly acquiantance, the two will automatically become ‘friends’. 

SUPER JUNIOR D&E Donghae and Eunhyuk,they are both 'same age friends’ and also 'real friends’,born in the same year, joined the company in the same year and debuted in the same year. Their brotherhood has been built up by 15 years of togetherness.

The most important is Understanding and Coordination.. 

Super Junior D&E only has Donghae and Eunhyuk,even though there are dancers on the stage with them,the feeling is just different from SJ on stage.

Donghae: When it is just two of us,I always feel there are very few people next to me, it feels like the stage of SJ and D&E is just too different. 

Normal days when 12 members gather together, the whole place will be full of noises, it is just like having a party when everyone talks, especially when they appear together in variety shows.

Eunhyuk: Before, even if I was not good enough,there would still be other members around,I could just sit at the back and not do the talking.Now,everything will have to be handled by just the two of us,the pressure is much larger, because responsibility is much heavier

But as they have debuted for 10 years and were so well trained, fans who have seen Super Junior D&E performances all know that,they are perfect in what they do, their stages are so full of fun, this is probably because these talents are natural to them!

Two people feel more relaxed when together ..

The interview was done the day after their D&E concert in HK,Donghae and Eunhyuk came with their tired bodies,rubbing their eyes while greeting our staff,then walked into the dressing room. 

After just a little while, they were both ready and doing all different poses in the most skillful ways. 

During the photoshooting,they didn’t talk much,but full of well understanding of each other. When Donghae slanted his body to one side, Eunhyuk would immediately respond with similar action, every action matched so perfectly.Because of the perfect coordination between the two, the shooting then finished very smoothly. 

Being together for 15 years, working partners and also good friends, it is not surprising to have this kind of understanding toward each other.  

Donghae: We have been staying together since very young,our hobbies,age and even our heights are very similar,we also like similar kind of music,so it is very natural for us to have Super Junior D&E. 

The way Donghae and Eunhyuk treat each other..

Even they have debuted for so long,Donghae was still uneasy in front of the camera and being very quiet. Eunhyuk who was sitting next to him, on the other hand,didn’t stop talking and from time to time would whisper to Donghae and lead him to answer some questions. Sometimes, Donghae would add his own opinion to Eunhyuk’s answers. The atmosphere between the two and the way they are to each other are enough for us to envy.

Eunhyuk: We are together everyday, from debut, we moved to our dorm together, and we spent all our life together and we work together, we are just like family, we really know each other too well (Laugh).In fact, it is only in front of the camera that Donghae would become so quiet, behind the camera, Donghae really loves to joke, and makes all the people around him very happy. 

Eunhyuk said he was used to talking more in front of the camera to cover the blank spots of Donghae and Donghae would feel very relaxed with Eunhyuk taking care of him this way. 

As they know each other so well, knowing each other’s good and bad points, strong and weak points, these two brothers know their way of understanding each other, taking care of each other, and with this, their friendship can go a long way!

supporting each other ..

This year, they are both entering the 30’s, this is another stage in their life.No more a childish youngster, but increased their feel of maturity. While starting the D&E, they both have different thinkings and destinations.

Eunhyuk: For the past 10 years, we have grown up a lot in every aspect. Before, when we did recordings and practicing, we cared very much the final results and how it came out. We often felt so worried and uneasy,but as time went by,now I think I have become more mature. We thank you all our fans for their love and encouragement. Now, compare to 'results’, I appreciate more the 'process’, and hope to enjoy the whole process to the most.

This time when making (The Beat Goes On) Eunhyuk participated a lot from beginning to end, added a lot of his own ideas and fully enjoyed the whole process of making the album.

Asked about D&E future destination, Donghae actively answered: “Actually, there are still a lot of possibilities in the future, we will try our best to enjoy every moment of it, and hope that every concert or every new album, we can bring the audience a new refreshing feeling, let them see our different images, and we want to repay our fans’s support with these, these are our destination.”

After the interview was over, Donghae sighed with relief, Eunhyuk padded Donghae’s shoulder with a smile, and Donghae also returned a smile to Eunhyuk, and ready to leave. Although neither of them spoke, but from the tiny action, we could see their intimate relationship, how they support each other, neither of them can live without the other, and continue hand in hand to grow in their paths of life!

2. Paris : They were so happy and played around at the airport. Hyukjae even bought a painting of Paris nightview and hang it up on the wall in his room, emphasizing in a TV programme that this was the best part he loved about his room! Hyukjae said Paris had given him a lot of memories as it was the first place he went on vacation. 

3. Germany : Hyukjae always stood behind Donghae and took a lot of photos of his Baby. In Hyukjae’s camera, Donghae always looked so happy and sweet! Hyukjae tweeted after they went back to Korea, saying “Donghae, this is Korea!”, and Donghae replied “Hyukjae, so you are always there behind me1”. Hyukjae said later in the tour that the memory of this trip could support him for the next coming year!

4. Japan : Hyukjae took Donghae to Disneyland. Hyukjae tweeted several times and showing how happy they were! Last year they went to Tokyo Tower together, showed us the Tower and the two in front of the Tower. Not to mention every little moments during their D&E Tour!

5. London : They went together one day earlier before Hyukjae went to Paris to join his parents. They tweeted often when they were apart, seemed like they were giving messages to each other, Hyukjae with his “Donghae, See You” and Donghae saying “I miss you, see you on Thursday!”

6. Swiss : Donghae had to end the trip earlier, Hyukjae looked sad even though he said he could still enjoy the trip with the baby. Donghae looked upset the next day when the leader and Hyukjae had left the apartment already, but still hoped they enjoyed their remaining trip.. 

Last but not least, the first trip in 2015, Eunhae and Donghwa went to US together. Eunhae showed us how happy they were in the big seaside honeymoon suite, singing and dancing together. They went to see JT concert and on the last day they all went to pay a visit to Hyukjae’s cousin, just like introducing each other’s family! 


These are just small bits of them traveling together that we know, and of course there are much more. This is their usual life : Be together and enjoy each other’s company!

2. Eating together


1.Went out in the middle of the night, Hyukjae using his gold card buying food for his baby. 

2.Cold Snowy night, Babyhae wanted to go out for coffee, even Hyukjae was tired, he still accompanied his baby to have Iced Chocolate! 

3.Midnight, they went out together to restaurants for late barbecue meat dinner and Donghae even tweeted about it to let us know about their date!

4.Eunhae went to Taco during New Year, Donghae drove and when Hyukjae saw Donghae’s mom, he called her ‘eomma’, hugged her while Donghae yawned next to them! (so domestic!)

They have a habit of feeding each other, ice-cream, cakes, meals…….., eat the same piece of seeweed, drink the same bottle of water using even the same straw… 

How much love can you see from here?

3. Watching Movies / Concerts together


2013, Hyukjae went to TLJ, after receiving a call, he kept saying it’s late, it’s late, and soon after he was seen by fans going to watch movie together with Donghae ^^

Hyukjae was the MC of Asian Music Festival, Babyhae tweeted “Our lovely Eunhyuk is the MC, ELF will be here to support you, Fighting!”, and Hyukjae replied “Ah, you should be here and sing Oppa Oppa with me, is really lonely being alone here!” The next day after the Festival, they went to watch Justin Bieber’s concert together and had a nice lovely date!

Eunhae went to see teuk’s musical with managers. They were playing with their mobile phones at the same time, and seems obvious they were texting each other instead of talking ^^ Eunhae even shared a Belgian waffle together! (I thought Hyukjae would not share his food…)

Uncountable concerts in Seoul, even went together to see JT in US, and everytime we can all see how happy they are during the concerts, so sweet and nice!

Hyukjae brought along Babyhae with him to TLJ, Donghae stayed all the time next to Hyukjae, both of them smiling happily and lovingly!
