Super Junior leader Lee Teuk says he had asked CSJH The Grace‘s member Dana to be his girlfriend before their debut. He made the remark on SBS “Strong Heart” aired on Tuesday.
He shared, “She was so thoughtful and considerate. I honestly, really liked her. She was the first person I liked after joining SM Entertainment.”
He further explained, “So, being a man, I told her exactly how I felt and told her that I wanted to date her. I thought because I had confessed my feelings for her, we were now an official couple. At least, thats what I thought… The next day I get to the office and people kept telling me that Dana had a boyfriend. I remember thinking to myself, ‘but I’m her boyfriend’… The management staff heard about what had happened, and they told me not to come to the office anymore. I had just started, and Dana was already preparing for her debut. I had to write five pages explaining my actions to the agency, promising to channel that drive and passion towards practicing to become the best.”
After he was done sharing his story, Dana surprised by his remarks, commented, “I didn’t know they told him to leave or that he had to write a five page letter of apology.”
