Lately, the idol's hair has been looking awkward on the EBS show 'The Best Cooking Secrets'. Many netizens reacted with much laughter to his awkward look, commenting, "LOLOL I'm sorry but he looks really funny."
Netizens assumed Leeteuk had no choice but to wear a wig to cover up his new, bright pink hair for Super Junior's impending comeback, as EBS is an education network with strict broadcasting guidelines.
In response to the assumptions, a rep from EBS explained to YTN Plus that it wasn't the strictness of the network but actually Leeteuk's own decision to wear a wig in respect of the show viewers who are mostly elders in their 50s and 60s.
Leeteuk also brought attention to his awkward look via Instagram on October 17, where he posted, "I heard many people have found laughter due to my hair. It's a good phenomenon. You didn't have many things to laugh about nowadays, right? Well, laugh more!!!" He also added, "#It's kinda cute ^^ Watch how my hair will change from now on... lol"
Meanwhile, Super Junior is scheduled to make their comeback on November 6.
