Super Junior’s Kangin talks about his three year hiatus and Girls’ Generation
On July 3rd, Super Junior‘s Kangin made his first public appearance with the group at their ‘Sexy, Free & Single‘ 6th album press conference and revealed his determination for the future.
He began by expressing, “I’ve been away for three years. Three years ago, I was 26 years old, and now I’m 29. Thinking about it now, being 26 is such a young age, and I must have been so caught up in my happiness then. I spent the past three years fitting the lost puzzle pieces back into my life.”
When asked about his days in the army, he replied, “Four months after my enlistment, I began to see the members of Girls’ Generation as women. They’re dongsengs I’ve seen since they were little, and I think they have gotten a lot prettier since their ‘Oh‘ album. I felt like Taeyeon was winking at me when I saw her on TV. During my break, I visited the company and found myself hugging Girls’ Generation tightly when I saw them.”
He continued, “I was able to make my comeback thanks to the support of my members. The company and my members did not let go of me and held on tightly, putting me in my place when I felt at a loss.”
