Being a K-Pop star can be quite difficult, especially if you belong to a group with a wide and loyal fanbase like the ELFs (Everlasting Friends). Super Junior's Lee Donghae, recently, issued a harrowed plea to fans to stop calling him after his number was accidentally leaked to the public.
According to a report by All Kpop, Donghae posted his plea on an Instagram story where he screenshot the crazy amount of calls he has been receiving nonstop from fans who wanted to talk to him. On his message, he said pls stop the call me (sic). Help me I\'m sorry,\" the frantic Super Junior member said.
His post raised some concern among fans who felt the urgency of his message and called on other followers to stop harassing Donghae. Some also praised the Super Junior member for being so polite in his request even though it was obvious that he was already feeling stressed out by the volume of calls he has been receiving from well meaning fans.
However, fans should be more understanding of Donghae's plight since Super Junior members' hands are, currently, full as they prepare for their comeback on October 14. The comeback, which has been teased on the Super Junior official social media accounts, will be SuJu's ninth studio album.
Very little is known about the details of the comeback since the teaser simply showed a countdown clock winding down to the time of the release of 6 p.m. KST on October 14. The teaser also took on a retro feel, leading fans to believe that it might be a throwback from their previous albums.
The comeback album is a time for celebration for long-time fans of Super Junior since all the members have already completed their military enlistment. The group's maknae, Kyuhyun, was released from service last May 9 and had been appearing in Kang's Kitchen along with his former New Journey to the West co-stars, E! reported.
Unfortunately, Kim Heechul will not be joining Super Junior in the promotions and Super Show 8 concerts for the new album because of his leg injury. It has been announced by Label SJ that, while Heechul will be part of recording the comeback album, only Leeteuk, Yesung, Shindong, Eunhyuk, Donghae, Siwon, Ryeowook and Kyuhyun will be able to participate in the promotion.
Heechul will still be part of the hugely popular SJ Returns Season 3 on V Live, which means that fans can still get ringside seats to the hilarity the combined forces of these variety show aces present as a group.
It can be recalled that Heechul figured in a major car accident in 2006 where he fractured his left leg. While he has healed from the injury, he still suffers from severe pain after executing complicated dance steps for an extended period.
