Why Super Junior’s Heechul Broke Up With His Ex-Girlfriend

Is this a good reason?

An online community post garnered much attention to a past video clip of Super Junior’s Heechul revealing the reason for breaking up with his ex-girlfriend.


There was a game I really enjoyed in my 20s. It’s a famous game called Wo*. 25 people have to defeat the boss. I was 25 or 26 back then. It was around 7:58 or 7:57. And I was supposed to go on a raid at 8:00.

My girlfriend said, ‘Heechul, let’s break up.’ So I replied, ‘Okay, got it. Sorry, I can’t help it. Sorry I didn’t take good care of you. Bye.’ Then she started crying.

Other members on the show couldn’t understand why he would say something like that.


So I spoke honestly. I made a promise with 24 people. She suddenly said she wanted to break up, but I’d promised with 24 people a week ago.

Prior engagements always come first for me, right? We broke up right away.

The other guests felt that actions like this could lead to divorce in the future.


They even called him out for being a game addict, in which he denied right away.


I’m not an addict. A promise with others. People who play this game understand.

Netizens also couldn’t understand why he was revealing this on public broadcast.

  • “These are all excuses. He is the type to avoid these things.”
  • “I really hate men like that…”
  • “Wow I really hate this type…”
  • “Not surprised…he just needs to meet someone like him I guess.”
  • “He’s not someone that thinks prior engagements are important, games are just more important than his girlfriend…the girlfriend must have been hurt bad by this…”
  • “Wow does he think this is something to be proud about.”
  • “Why do people think the girlfriend is the same? I’m sure this type of thing has happened more than once. She wouldn’t suddenly ask to break up out of nowhere.”
  • “Wow, is he not embarrassed to be saying stuff like this on public broadcast?”
  • “He’s the type to live alone without getting married…for the sake of the other person he needs to…”

What do you think about his reasoning? Is this acceptable?
