Super Junior’s Siwon was given the nickname “Simba” by Heechul because he said that his face looked like a prince’s. Siwon’s fans also call him “Shisus”, “God’s #1 Fan”, and “Soldier of Light” due to the fact that he is very religious. While most people know these nicknames, how much of Siwon do you really understand? That’s what this brief profile is here for!
Name: Choi Siwon
Birthday: Registered is February 10, 1987. Actual is April 7, 1986.
Family Background: Born in Seoul and raised in a strict Protestant family. He’s considered the richest member of Super Junior as his father is the CEO of Boryung Pharmaceutical Group.
Role in Super Junior: Sub-Vocal and the ‘Appealing Visual’
-He secretly auditioned in the Starlight Casting System after his parents expressed their disapproval of him pursuing an entertainment career.
-Siwon made his acting debut in “Eighteen, Twenty-Nine” in 2005. Since then, he’s starred in various dramas and movies such as “Spring Waltz“, “Oh! My Lady“, “Athena: Goddess of War“, and “A Battle of Wits“.
-He is skilled in Taekwondo and became the youngest in Korea to hold the fourth rank in black belt.
-He’s known as the ’scuplture man’ for his ‘perfectly chiseled out’ body.
-Siwon is a popular choice for endorsements and frequently models for many items in South Korea. In March 2007, he and fellow member Donghae were picked as the models for Thailand’s 12 Plus Powder.
-Siwon is an UNICEF envoy.
-He is also a member of Super Junior-M.
-Siwon’s fans are called ‘The Siwonest’, translating to ‘The Coolest’ because ‘Siwon’ literally translates into ‘cool’.
-Leader Leeteuk mentioned that Siwon is purposely placed in the middle in most photos because “putting him in the middle gives the illusion that all members of the group are really handsome.
-Siwon is known to be extremely polite and his members constantly make fun of him for his use of excessive hand gestures.
-Fun Fact: Siwon is a very devoted Christian and constantly tries to convert Heechul, who is an atheist.
Siwon has pretty much tried out everything there is in the entertainment industry. He’s a singer, dancer, actor, and a model. The one thing that I’d like to see him try is in musicals. Although his vocals aren’t the best in Super Junior, I feel that participating in musicals would greatly help him expand as both an actor and a singer.
