In an interview with OSEN on November 23, Heechul was asked about his group of 11 years. He gave an answer filled with affection, saying, "In the past, we were like a family but now we're more like a married couple; a relationship where you still sleep together under one blanket after a fight. We are in a relationship where we can be together even if we age and not promote as often. To be honest, I used to think of cool things to say to answer this type of question but now no descriptions are needed."
He continued, "I'm not the type who openly expresses [feelings] to dongsaengs but at times I go to their performances to support them. I just nonchalantly greet them but they all know my personality. We are really family. Next year, Siwon, Donghae, and Eunhyuk are returning so Super Junior should make a comeback too. We are drawing a lot of possibilities. Please cheer us on."
