Kyuhyun confessed that sometimes he was jealous of artists in smaller labels.
The latest episode of ‘Radio Star‘ featured the 1st generation idol members of g.o.d, NRG, Sechskies, and H.O.T. Each one was asked if they were jealous of the other labels during their promotional period, and NRG’s Chun Myung Hoon replied, “I was jealous of all of them“, as the other three had been from big labels such as JYP Entertainment, DSP Media, and SM Entertainment.
Sechskies’ Kim Jae Duk joked that he was jealous of SM Entertainment because they housed the pretty ladies of S.E.S. Meanwhile, H.O.T’s Lee Jae Won said he’d never been jealous of another entertainment company, since H.O.T had done so well. However, he did mention that he was jealous of how SM Entertainment has improved and how large the company has become now.
After hearing Lee Jae Won’s answer, Kyuhyun spoke up and said, “While that is true, I am sort of jealous of other labels. It’s not that I’m jealous of any particular person, but that since our label is becoming so big, you have people doing acting, singing, and even running restaurants.”
Lee Jae Won asked sharply, “You’re now listed as a stock holder. Do you have stocks?“, and Kyuhyun admitted that he did. After the panel and the guests joked around with the stock prices of SM Entertainment, Kyuhyun got back on track and said, “Since the label is becoming so big, they sometimes have no choice but to pay less and less attention to us. So sometimes I’m a little jealous of the smaller labels. I keep thinking that Super Junior could be put on the back burner for their other interests.”
Of course, his comments were shut down by his sunbaes, who pointed out that he was at the top, and therefore would not be getting pushed to the side anytime soon. Kim Jae Duk joked, “About 15 years from now, you’ll realize how good they were to you.”
