Eunhyuk was born Lee Hyuk-jae in Neunggok, Goyang, Gyeonggi. In 1999 when he turned thirteen, he auditioned for SM Entertainment through the company’s Starlight Casting System with childhood friend Kim Junsu. Kim Junsu was selected to sign a contract with the company soon after, but Eunhyuk failed the audition. He auditioned again the following year and was finally selected through showcasing his rapping and dancing abilities. Under SM Entertainment, Eunhyuk was further trained in singing, dancing, acting, and had brief Mandarin Chinese language courses. In 2002 Eunhyuk, Kim Junsu, and another trainee Sungmin were placed in a project R&B group. A year later, the trio along with three future members from TRAX (Jay Kim, No Minwoo, Kang Jungwoo) made a brief appearance in a show called Heejun vs. Kangta, Battle of the Century: Pop vs. Rock, in which Moon Hee-jun and Kangta individually taught them techniques on different types of singing. Later that year, Eunhyuk’s trio disbanded, and Kim Junsu debuted as a member of TVXQ in 2003. Eunhyuk and Sungmin were instead placed together in another project group with ten other male trainees. The twelve boys formed the group Super Junior 05, being the first generation of the rotational boy band Super Junior.
With a total of twelve members, Super Junior 05 officially debuted on November 6, 2005 on SBS‘s music program Popular Songs, performing their first single, “TWINS (Knock Out)“. Their debut performance attracted over 500 fans and also garnered oversea viewers from both China and Japan. A full studio album was released a month later, which debuted at #3 on the monthly MIAK K-pop album charts.
In March 2006, SM Entertainment began to recruit new members for the next Super Junior generation. However, plans changed when the company added in a thirteenth member, Kyuhyun, and the company declared a halt in forming future Super Junior generations. The group dropped the suffix “05” and became officially credited as Super Junior. The re-polished group hit big after they released their first CD single “U” the following summer, which became Super Junior’s most successful single in the music charts until the release of “Sorry, Sorry” in March 2009.
Eunhyuk is an acclaimed lyricist and wrote the rap lyrics for a majority of Super Junior’s songs. The rap lyrics to “Show Me Your Love” from the winter single with TVXQ was written by him, along with Heechul and Shindong. The Lyrics to One Love were also one of his works. Eunhyuk also wrote the lyrics for “여행 (A Short Journey)” from Bonamana Repackaged Album, while Donghae composed the music. Along with Shindong and Donghae, he also choreographs some of Super Junior’s dance routines.
During his career with Super Junior, Eunhyuk was put into three subgroups, smaller groups that are branched off of the larger Super Junior group. In February 2007, he was placed in the trot-singing Super Junior-T. A year later, he became a member of Super Junior-Happy. In 2011, he was announced to be one of two new members of Super Junior-M along with Sungmin.
Eunhyuk replaced Kangin’s position in hosting for Mnet’s music program M!Countdown in late 2006. Hosting with band mates Leeteuk and Shindong, they did not leave their hosting positions until early 2008.
Eunhyuk has also been the co-host of Super Junior’s Kiss the Radio (SUKIRA) with Leeteuk, a radio show that promotes Korea’s music and pop culture. The show was established on August 21, 2006 and has become one of the more frequently tuned in radio channels of Korea. The radio show recently celebrated its 5th anniversary. He stopped on 28 Feb 2011 to focus on SJ-M’s promotions. He promised to be back in 3 months. he comeback to SUKIRA at June 21, 2011

He had a special position at Strong Heart as “xylophone hitter” where he temporarily left due to Super Junior M activity. ‘Strong Heart’ presented a golden xylophone as a special present to thank Eunhyuk

Eunhyuk only suffered minor injuries, and was discharged from the hospital on April 23.

While they were on the highway, the front left tire busted as the driver was switching lanes and the van ran into the guard rail/medium on the driver’s side and skidded for about 30M+. At some point, the momentum caused the van to flip over on its right side.
Eunhyuk was reported to have glass shards in his back, and was said to have stitches.
The accident was caused by a deflated left front tire. The driver was trying to switch lanes but lost control and collided with the guard rail.
