July 10 is ‘우주 대스타‘ Kim Heechul’s birthday!
It has been an inside joke within the group and the fandom that thankfully, this is 9 days after Super Junior‘s leader Leeteuk’s birthday on the 1st of July — or else we will be getting Heechul as the leader; a thought that gives quite a shiver to the SJ members as well as the fans (lol).
Last time, on his debut anniversary, we gave you “15 Reasons Why We Love Super Junior’s Kim Heechul“. This time, to celebrate his 38th birthday (I had to mention that) let’s look at this list of random moments that will surely entertain you (whether you’re not yet a fan) and probably convert you into a his fan.

Did you enjoy the video clips above? Now you’ll have some idea why this guy is so loved nowadays. With his wit, honesty, talent, personality and many more, one can’t help but love this guy. He might have been pestered by tons of antis (haters) during his early years in the industry but over the years he has managed to become one of the most loved korean idol by being true to himself.
According to him, “Being different from others isn’t wrong. Not everyone has to be measured the same way. People who are playful; who party hard; who does anything at all; who aren’t good at doing things. I think they are all needed. If I can uphold/abide by the most basic things that are needed, even if 10 or 20 years have passed, someday I’ll hear: ‘Ah, Kim Heechul didn’t do anything wrong'”.
Again, Happy Birthday to the Universe’s Biggest Star!
