Stage Name: Kyuhyun (규현) Birth Name: Cho Kyu Hyun (조규현) Birthday: November 6, 1988 Hometown: Seoul, South Korea Nationality: Korean Debut: May 26, 2006 Position: Lead Vocalist, Maknae Army Service: Not started Kyuhyun is a lead vocalist and the youngest member of SM Entertainment Kpop group Super Junior. Though his parents initially urged him to become a lawyer, Kyuhyun joined a band in high school and became convinced that he would rather pursue a performance career. His parents were against the idea, but agreed to allow him to pursue a career as a singer if he did well on his college entrance exams. Kyuhyun earned attention from SM Entertainment when he won third place at the ChinChin Singing Competition in 2005. Super Junior was originally intended to be a group with rotating members, and Kyuhyun was the first and last addition to the group, as SM decided to abandon the changing member concept. Kyuhyun debuted a little less than a year after the rest of the group did, joining them for their "U" comeback in May 2016. Months later, Kyuhyun formed an R&B ballad unit along with Ryeowook and Yesung called Super Junior-K.R.Y. Since his debut, Kyuhyun has recorded multiple original soundtrack singles for various dramas in Korea. In April 2007, Kyuhyun was involved in a near-fatal car accident. While riding in a van with three other Super Junior members and two managers, the front left tire of the van burst, causing the vehicle to hit a guard rail, skid and eventually flip. Shindong and Eunhyuk were not severely injured, but Leeteuk and Kyuhyun were both rushed to the intensive care unit. Kyuhyun was sitting behind the driver's seat when the accident occurred, and had a fractured hip, collapsed lung, and broken ribs in addition to multiple cuts and contusions. He was in a coma for four days following the accident, and doctors estimated that he had only a 20% chance of surviving. Initially, the doctors told him that they would need to drill a hole in his throat to fix his lungs, thus ending his career as a singer. Kyuhyun's father immediately rejected the operation, saying that his son would rather die than not be able to sing. Kyuhyun spent 78 days in the hospital before being discharged in July 2007. Kyuhyun has starred in 8 musicals in a span of just six years, starting with The Three Musketeers in 2010, and most recently in 2016, Mozart. Other notable productions include Catch Me If You Can, Moon Embracing the Sun, Singin' in the Rain, The Days, Robin Hood, and Werther. In November 2014, Kyuhyun made his solo debut with the release of his first EP, At Gwanghwamun. He made a solo comeback the next year with the release of his sophomore EP, Fall, Once Again. In August of 2016 Kyuhyun received surgery to have nodules on his vocal cords removed, forcing him into a temporary hiatus. He is now a regular host on the television show Radio Star.
