Hangeng reveals how he was restricted by SM Entertainment + why he left Super Junior

Hangeng opened up about the struggles he faced under SM Entertainment.

According to Chinese media outletSina on April 4, Hangengrecently shared his K-Pop idol experience on a talk show.

The former Super Juniormember looked back at his time in Korea, and said, "Handsome, a good dancer, fresh, and had a lot of fans. An idol. That's what I was."

However,despite the great success of Super Junior, Hangeng revealed he couldn't stand the restrictions. He explained, "The agency controls yourimage and wouldn't let you do the things you want. An idol must put the agency and the group ahead of yourself."

Hangeng then revealed that this was the major reason why he left the group and the agency. He explained he had great desires to act and even tried discussing with the head directors but nothing worked out.

He said,"I wanted to act." With a disapprovingtone, he continued, "Dancing and jumping even at the age of 30...I had thoughts of my own."

The MC of the talk show asked, "Do you not care for the fans?" Hangeng replied, "I do need the fans but I didn't have much to offer to them."

Back in 2005, Hangeng debuted as a member of Super Junior. In 2009, he left the group and started a lawsuit against SM Entertainment. He's been promoting as an actor in China ever since.
