Misc. Info.: Eunhyuk entered SM in 2000. His best friend since elementary school is DBSK’s Xiah Junsu. They went to the same school and due to their mutual love of dancing, they became dance partners and best friends. He, like Sungmin, debuted on SBS “Showdown of the Century (세기의 대결),” a show that showcased various SM trainees, hosted by Kangta and Moon Heejun of H.O.T. in 2002. His stage name was created because there is a well-known Korean comedian who has the same name. He decided to add an Eun which means “silver” thus the precious jewel of his nickname to the first part of his name deriving Eunhyuk.
