  • He was in the Top 3 of his class during his childhood. Even when he was sick he attended school.
  • It was Ulzzang.
  • He broke his nose in the past, so he had to have corrective cosmetic surgery.
  • He entered SM Entertainment because of his visual image. he went to Seoul for the first time to accompany his friend to an SM Entertainment audition but they were an hour late. despite this, the agent let them in and immediately sent Heechul to the audition because of his looks and he was given a chance. as a reference, he sang the national anthem. then he held a second singing audition with a ballad and dance.
    • Heechul has commented on how happy and excited his parents were when he signed with SM Entertainment. He explained, “My parents’ friends’ children were good at studying. So they would tell me how someone got into this or that university. But when I told them that I got into SM Entertainment, they were so happy. Honestly, they were really really completely ecstatic; One funny thing that happened is that when we talked about the length of the contract, my mom joked, ‘There’s probably no other place that will take you. Hurry up and sign for 30 years. Just sign now.’ I’ve been working comfortably and nicely ever since.”
  • He started training when he was 15 and almost retired and left SM Entertainment before his debut, He trained not as an idol trainee but as the lead vocalist of TRAX, the agency’s first rock band that debuted in 2004. “At that time, I had frequent clashes with SM Entertainment officials. Our opinions on music don’t match. “SM even told him to write a letter of apology because of his constant defiance, but he was still rude in that letter: “I don’t know what I did wrong but I am writing this because you told me I have to.” He could have been kicked out of SM as they had over 100 trainees at the time, but they kept him because of his incredibly good looks, so as punishment, he was removed from the band. He eventually gave up and decided to return to his hometown in Gangwon Province: “Jungmo, Jay, Yunho and Donghae convinced me to come back. Lee Soo Man told him to become an actor,
  • After Hankyung suddenly left Super Junior, Heechul, who was his best friend, fell into a deep depression. He locked himself away and didn’t appear on stage for almost three months. Heechul finally came back to reality after Eunhyuk shouted something to him that said this harshly. “Hyung we don’t need you to sing or dance, but we need you because without you Super Junior is not the same.”
  • In 2006 Kim Heechul was driving back from Donghae’s father’s wake when he noticed sasaeng fans following him with their car. He tried to lose them by taking various routes, but ended up in a car accident that broke his leg and tongue. As a result, and after 10 hours of surgery, he has 7-8 iron cores in one leg.
    • “Ever since I had a car accident 11 years ago, every time we’ve gone back, I’ve heard the same things,” he said. “For example, when we were performing ‘Rokkugo’ and ‘Don’t Don’, there were many publications saying things like ‘Just go to the army’ or ‘You have deliberately had an accident to avoid entering the army’.” During ‘Sorry Sorry’, Eunhyuk arranged the choreography so that he could dance in the last part due to his ankle. “People then commented, ‘He’s making money so easily.'” He said such comments continued even after he was discharged from the army (where he was performing civilian service), and in more recent comebacks, such as with “Mamacita” and “Devil.” “If I was fun and passionate at a concert, they would tell me ‘go to the army,'” said Kim Heechul. “If the members arranged for me to only appear at the end, then they would comment things like.
  • Once he changed his phone number, and as he was leaving the service center, he received a sasaeng text saying, ‘Even if you change your number we already know.'”
  • Heechul revealed that a sasaeng somehow discovered the code at the entrance of his house. Instead of taking something with her, he hid his own underwear in Heechul’s underwear drawer. When he returned home, he sent a text to Heechul that read, ” Oppa, your teddy bear underwear is very cute.”
  • Being constantly exposed to the fanfictions that Super Junior fans wrote, Heechul decided to write his own romantic stories of its members.

He has posted the writings on his social media pages for his own fans to read.

  • He is an atheist and has his own religion called Relagyo (렐라교).

  • He commented on the departure of Kris Wu in EXO, saying that it was not right and he did not agree with how Kris behaved, “not because of what he did but because of how he did it, because Super Junior’s case with Han Geng was very different.
  • He is a person who will always defend those close to him, even leaving his celebrity image aside in order to be with them. He commented on a radio program that when some students insulted Han Geng (Heechul’s friend and former Suju member) in Chinese, Heechul got so angry that he forgot his celebrity image and asked the fans where those students had gone, he said he was so angry that they did that just because he is a foreigner.

  • During the filming of We Got Married, he said that he studied Chinese with Zhou Mi and Meng Jia however, Zhou Mi has always been his language support, for example every time he wants to write a post in Chinese on Weibo Zhou Mi is the one who helps him, if he is not around then he writes in Korean.
