Han Geng: Life After Super Junior

The soft-spoken former Super Junior member with the adorable laugh had long since left the popular Korean boyband before I knew anything about him. But once I learned his story, I was moved and felt it deserved to be told here. Han Geng, 27, (pronounced “Hahn Gung”) was born in Heilongjiang, China to a businessman father and housewife mother. From a young age, he had dreams of becoming an entertainer, and later as a teenager, he was given the opportunity to train in singing, dancing and acting under SM Entertainment, South Korea’s largest entertainment company. Geng moved to South Korea all by himself, and so his story with Super Junior began. Read all about his time before, during and after Super Junior here. If I thought it necessary, I would rehash all the ugly details of the suffering he endured, illnesses he developed and lawsuit he brought against SM, but that would be beating a dead horse. The good news is that he stood up, fought for his human rights, succeeded and is now thriving in China as an actor, singer and model. Whether he belongs to Super Junior or not, his countryfolk love him regardless, and they’ve been nothing but supportive since his return. He is known for being incredibly generous, and urges his fans to donate money and material things (that they would normally send to him as gifts) to his favourite charities to help fight hunger and poverty in China.

I don’t know why Han Geng’s story has touched me so deeply, but I can tell you that out of all of the guys that have been featured on this blog, Geng has definitely become one of my favourite. Let’s keep an eye on him and wish him the best with his career and future endeavors. 🙂
