What is Hankyung Up To?Posted: November 17, 2010
Since Hankyung (Hangeng) took his leave from Super Junior and SM Entertainment, what exactly has he been doing?
Fans were surprised to find the ex-Super Junior member in a commercial for a 3D online game from China.
In the commercial, Hankyung is seen getting yelled at by his female boss at the place where he’s a part-time worker. As, in the commercial, it’s his dream to become a singer, you see him dancing around to his headphones. The boss scolds him, “What do you think you’re doing? You think this is a concert or something? This is a place of business.”
Not being able to take it anymore, Hankyung becomes angry and is transported into the game, where he fights his evil boss, defeats her, and (back to reality) becomes the singer he dreamt of.
Some (crazy) netizens are seeing this commercial as a betrayal to his Korean fan base, because “he’s continuing to do activities even though he hasn’t cleaned everything back up in Korea.”
Other fans are delighted to see Hankyung’s face again, even though it’s not in Korean or with Super Junior members.
In December of 2009, Hankyung broke up with SM Entertainment due to an unfair contract and announced that he plans to go solo in the Chinese market. He is currently doing activities alone, as in this commercial.
If you too are missing Hankyung, check out the commercial for yourself:
The game looks pretty exciting, but there seems to be some netizen hate uprising from the news getting to the peninsula over a month after the commercial was released.
Do you see Hankyung’s commercial as betrayal? Or, is he just getting on with his life in style?
