In 2002, Sungmin was placed in an R&B project group with Eunhyuk and Xiah Junsu. The trio separated when Junsu went on to debut with TVXQ, while Eunhyuk and Sungmin went back into the trainee system. Sungmin eventually debuted as one of the original members of Super Junior.

In September 2014, Sungmin announced that he was in a relationship with musical actress Kim Sa-Eun, and the two were married three months later in December of 2014. Just three months later in March 2015, Sungmin began his 21 month mandatory military service. He is currently still enlisted, and will complete his service in 2017.
