Leeteuk participated in a photo shoot with ‘GEEK‘ for its December issue. It’s especially becoming a hot issue for containing the first shots of Leeteuk with his shaved hair.
During the photo shoot that took place on October 26th, Leeteuk brightened up the studio with his positive attitude. He playfully asked, “Can we do hair cutting a little slowly?” but once the hair styling started, he became serious and began his preparations.
Before the shoot, Leeteuk had also tweeted, “I’m shaving my hair now…and I’m thinking of this song.. a song I used to sing a lot when I was younger… ‘Shave Your Head’…… My look is made of hair… I’m ruined kkkkkkkk ”
Despite his worries, the staff on site complimented on his new hair style by saying, “It looks so good” and “I think you will look good doing promotions with a short hair style.”
Leeteuk, also took to his Twitter to say “Goodbye“. He posted the photo below and wrote, “Making a promise for 21 months, Later..Good Bye..^^”
Leeteuk will be enlisting in the army on October 30th as a serviceman on active duty. Although he was suffering from back disc problems since Super Junior’s big car accident in 2007, Leeteuk had a strong desire to serve on active duty and has been continuously receiving treatments to enlist in the military as planned.

On the October 28th broadcast of MBC‘s ‘Section TV Entertainment Relay‘, Choi Siwon revealed his father’s response to the topic of his family’s wealth that comes up a lot during broadcast.
Not long ago during Super Junior‘s appearance on ‘Golden Fishery-Radio Star‘, the members of the boy group had boasted about Siwon’s financial power. Member Leeteuk had gone as far as jokingly saying, “[Siwon] can even buy out MBC.”
Regarding the issue Siwon stated, “When my father woke up the next morning he asked me, ‘What did you say on broadcast? This is the first time I’ve received so many text messages beginning at the brink of dawn’.”
In reply to his statement the reporter asked, “Even if you can’t buy out MBC, can you buy all the flowers here?“, pointing to all of the flowers in the flower shop, in which the interview took place.
Choi Siwon responded to the question saying, “Do you think it would be just the flowers?“, causing a breakout of laughter on set.
It seems as though Super Junior‘s Leeteuk is struggling with his sasaeng fans even until the day prior to his enlistment on October 30th.
