Kyuhyun and Ryeowook... "They haven't been on the stage lately?" What? Did Ryeowook do like two musicals last year? And I'm pretty sure Kyukyun is either prepping for or doing a musical right now not to mention the one he was sharing a role with Suho in back in winter.

And where is Junsu? He opened the path for everyone basically. The one who has received standing ovations for 30 min.

And to the record I'm not his fan but he deserves being mentioned on this list 🙆🏻‍♀️
