Super Junior's Lee Teuk Reveals Middle School Picture and Report Card

Super Junior‘s leader Leeteuk was confirmed to be a “mother’s friend’s son” (a general term used to describe someone who is good-looking and also smart; a person that your mother always compares you to) during an episode “We Got Married“.

During this episode, which was aired on November 26, Leeteuk and Kang So Ra visited Leeteuk’s middle school. They spent some time talking about Leeteuk’s past school days. The faux couple also went to find Leeteuk’s homeroom teacher.

Then, Lee Teuk’s graduation photo and report card were revealed. Lee Teuk’s portrait showed a slightly nerdy but cute middle school student with big eyes, wearing glasses. Kang Sora playfully teased him for looking nerdy.

They proceeded to reveal Lee Teuk’s report card, which was filled with high marks. Lee Teuk, who was class president, also received an “English Excellence Award,” which confirmed that Lee Teuk did indeed have a nerdy side. To this, Kang Sora commented, “You were a ‘mother’s friend’s son!'” and continued to praise him, which made Lee Teuk shyly blush.

On the “Actions and Development” section of the report card, the teacher commented, “He is cheerful and active and has great leadership. Not only does he have leadership but he has great people skills as well.” Lee Teuk’s middle school teacher said, “He had leadership since he was a child – that is why he became a leader today.”

It’s no surprise that Lee Teuk was such a great student!

[NEWS] Jang Geun Suk Donates $1.2 Million USD To His College

Jang Geun Suk has donated $1.2 million USD to his college, Hanyang University, it was revealed on November 23. The news was first shared on Hanyang University’s donation site, and students started spreading the word, which resulted in the school confirming the contribution.

“Jang Geun Suk made the donation without notifying the school in advance. But his name was revealed on the school’s donation list and his contribution was made public,” Hanyang University said.

On November 22, Jang Geun Suk’s name was first revealed on their donation site under the name, “Theater Major Jang Geun Suk,” with the amount $1.2 million USD mentioned on the side. But his name was deleted on November 23, raising speculation over the validity of his endowment.

This donation turns out to be the highest ever amount by any Hanyang University student or alumni. Two Hanyang University alumni donated $1 million USD each in the past.

Jang Geun Suk is well-known for his love for his school. Even during a leave of absence, he showed up at the school’s festival and concerts, and often stopped by with pizza and drinks for his friends.

“I wanted to make this donation without letting others know, but it’s a bit frustrating how it was made public. I hope this helps my juniors who are struggling through rough times,” Jang Geun Suk said.

Hanyang University said they will create a “Jang Geun Suk Scholarship Fund” with today’s donation and will be spent on helping theater-major students.
