TVXQ’s Yunho Could Be Lee Soo Man’s Successor, In Hyoyeon’s Opinion

CEO Yunho? Yes please.

Could TVXQ‘s Yunho be SM Entertainment‘s next CEO? Girls’ Generation‘s Hyoyeon certainly thinks so.

Yunho is set to be the special host of this week’s upcoming episode of Radio Star, and Hyoyeon is one of the guests.

During a preview, the cast of Radio Star first talked about the latest hot topic—Yunho’s appearance on I Live Alone. Yunho had shared his morning routine through the show, which involved a lot of dancing.

A lot of people asked me if I really dance like that in the morning. Whenever I have a performance coming up, I really do. I have danced 10 hours in one day.

It was after this brief discussion that viewers of Radio Star were given a snippet of a conversation about Yunho becoming Lee Soo Man’s successor for the company. Hyoyeon volunteered the TVXQ member as a tribute, believing that he is one of the top 4 contenders of the coveted title.

Anytime we have a SM dinner, the passionate men (Yunho, Minho, Choi Siwon) are always around Lee Soo Man.

Yunho is one of the three men in “SM’s Passionate Trio” that has been created within the label. Super Junior‘s SiwonSHINee‘s Minho, and Yunho are all members of this made up group. These three idols are known for their passionate desires, which include Korea’s history, businesses, and their company’s future.

Due to their fiery passions and political way of communicating, they have jokingly been named as the potential successors of the company. This trio has been the talk of the town ever since Super Junior’s Heechul brought it up on an episode of Knowing Bros.

Both Yunho and Hyoyeon have been with SM Entertainment for 21 years, with both idols entering the company back in 2000. Let’s be real, with two decades under her belt Hyoyeon could also be a contender for the SM successor title!
