On the September 5th broadcast of MBC‘s Golden Fishery: Radio Star, billed as an idol stars special with Choi Siwon, Eunhyuk, Shindong and Leeteuk from Super Junior as guests.
The other members revealed that Siwon is a perfect example of a rich kid from a well to do family. It’s well known in the k-pop industry that he is a son from a wealthy family, compared frequently to another ‘rich kid’ in the industry, ZE:A‘s Park Hyungshik. Hyungshik’s father is the CEO of Benz.
“Siwon’s father recently moved to a bigger company, while handing his original business for Siwon’s mother to manage.”
Leeteuk revealed that, “Than we ended our activities and headed home, Siwon asked us to drop him at a building facing the front of the road Just a few months later, he asked the driver to drop him off at a building at the back of the road instead. it turns out that his original home in the first building was undergoing renovation, and thus he had to live in another building, and showing that he has more than one home.”
Then Siwon quipped, “I can host Radio Star now, you mean?” To which Leeteuk quickly replied, “You probably can afford to buy out the whole of MBC TV. This must be peanuts to you. The whole of Korea would probably be shocked if Choi Siwon reveals the true extent of his wealth.”
