This young idol, who recently became known as the one with the sharp tongue, Cho Kyuhyun of Super Junior, has been hosting MBC’s Radio Star along with co-hosts, Kim Kookjin, Yoon Jongshin, Yu Saeyoon. Although he sits there with a happy smile, he surprises the audience whenever he opens his mouth to pose questions to his guests. To a famous composer who has not released new songs for some time, he says, “How are you feeding yourself these days?” When facing a female comedian who has had plastic surgery, he asks, “Can surgery really get rid of a chin that easily?”
Those in showbiz are rating him as an ace whose shining performance has surprised everyone and as someone to watch out for. He has an innocent and kind face, yet comes up with the kinds of comments that makes the whole audience crack up. Many even say that he’s replacing Kim Gura’s empty seat.
On July 9th, we met up with Kyuhyun at a cafe in the Gangnam area. He said he was nervous about the interview, but his bright smile was truly befitting of a 20-something young man. He said that in the program, his facial expressions were over-exaggerated and his biting words were the result of his wish to create the image of a sharp-tongued character.
Q:Around last October, Radio Star decided to use you as the host instead of Eunhyuk or Leeteuk – those members who are already famous comedians. Were people around you worried?
A:I myself was very worried. At the time, Kim Gura recommended me for Radio Star. Yoon Jongshin hyung also put in many good words for me. Compared with other SJ members, I’m not very exceptional and also slightly introverted. Also, I’m not the kind who often makes people laugh. But since I took up the position, I decided that I must do it well. I’m the kind of person who doesn’t like to lose.
Q:Have you done a lot of preparation?
A:Although I received attention from my musical, to be honest, I was extremely worried when I first started. Even my vocalization techniques had to be re-learnt. I took the same attitude towards variety shows. If you don’t acquire the basic foundation, there is no way you can make people laugh. I reviewed every single Radio Star episode starting from the first episode. I watched, reviewed and analyzed. So I learned along the way and slowly adjusted my performance accordingly.
Q:Do you feel tired hosting Radio Star in this manner, in the way you have to deal with your sunbaes?
A:Actually, that is the most tiring. Radio Star hosts never greet the guests before the recording. The reason is, since they need to ask poignant questions, it might feel strange or even ineffective if they do greetings beforehand. I, on the other hand, go into the guests’ waiting room and greet every single person and explain the run-down of the show, and after the recording, I will again say my greetings to the guests. If I didn’t do that, I’d feel badly. Thankfully, the guests all say that it [the sharp-tongued bantering back and forth] is understandable, given the nature of the show. With those kinds of comments, I feel truly thankful towards them.
A:I heard that your dream was to become a ballad singer. Will this kind of sharp-tongued image affect your dream?
Q:Previously, I wasn’t such a well-known member of SJ. After Radio Star, my popularity has risen. I think this has a positive effect on singing activities. If the opportunity ever arises, I want to release a solo ballad album, then stand on the stage alone. Before this happens, I want to make myself better known to the public. I believe that musicals and variety shows provide a great foundation for a future career as a true singer.
