Seperti yang diberitakan sebelumnya, Henry mengungkapkan hal yang membuatnya takut ketika pertama kali tinggal di dorm suju dalam tayangan Strong Heart tadi malam. Jadi apa kira2 yang membuat Henry sampe ga bisa tidur 2 minggu?
Ternyata pada awalnya Henry mengira kalau suju itu gay! Henry mengatakan “Laki2 Korea terbiasa untuk merangkul sesama teman laki2nya namun untuk orang asing melakukan hal tersebut bisa disangka gay.” Berhubung Henry memang tumbuh di lingkungan internasional jadi jelas aja dia kaget 😛
Henry mengungkapkan bahwa mereka juga sering memukul pantatnya “Ketika pertama kali bertemu Aku kira mereka semua gay. Aku salah paham terhadap Leeteuk karena dia yang paling sering memukul pantatku.”
Namun yang menjadi kejutan terbesar untuknya adalah Heechul. “Rambutnya panjang dan wajahnya cantik seperti perempuan jadi kukira dia transgender,” kata Henry.
Di lain sisi, Eunhyuk juga merasa terkejut karena Henry memanggil bos SM Lee Soo Man dengan Tuan Lee (biasanya idol SM memanggilnya Lee Soo Man sonsaengnim ^^). Henry berkata “Awalnya Aku tidak tahu siapa dia namun kemudian ada yang memberitahuku kalau dia bos SM. Jadi kupanggil saja dia Tuan Lee dan bilang padanya ‘Aku akan memberikan nomorku kalau Anda memberikan kartu nama Anda’.”
Eunhyuk menambahkan “Henry masih memanggilnya Tuan Lee sampai sekarang” dan ketika ditanya apa reaksi Lee Soo Man mengenai hal ini Eunhyuk berkata “Dia menerimanya karena menganggap kami semua teman.”
Sebetulnya panggilan Tuan disini juga termasuk sopan namun dalam bahasa Korea ada tingkat perbedaan dalam hal kesopanan berbicara, terutama pada mereka yang lebih tua dan dihormati biasanya dipanggil sonsaengnim seperti Lee Soo Man, makanya Eunhyuk kaget sewaktu mendengar Henry memanggilnya dengan sebutan Tuan Lee ^_^ Begitu juga dengan kebiasaan laki2 korea yang membuat Henry kaget, sebetulnya ini juga menjadi salah satu alasan antis boyband korea bkn hanya suju..kebanyakan dari mereka mengira kalau member bb korea itu gay padahal budaya mereka disana memang seperti itu (pelukan, merangkul dan menunjukkan kasih sayang pd sesama teman laki2 adalah hal yg biasa buat mereka 😀 ).
Berikut video cut dan transkrip Henry di Strong Heart tadi malam :
Note :  captions, () notes, tn. translator’s note, LSG (Lee Seunggi), KHD (Kang Hodong)
KHD: Next, from Canada, it’s Super Junior’s secret weapon!
[Super Junior M charming secret weapon!]
KHD: I present to you, Super Junior M’s Henry!
[Suju like men]
[Shocking title! ㅡ Suju like men!]
LSG: Oh the topic is.. suju like men!
Henry: Ah, men.. in Korea, men are like this to each other, they hold hands, ‘Oh omo you did well’..
[Korean men lightly touch each other or put their arms around each other’s shoulders!]
Henry: Well.. like this, this kind of things is thought of as ordinary.
[It’s a manifestation of closeness in Korea!]
Henry: But overseas if you hug like this between men, or what else.. if you hold their hand walking like this, it’s TOTALLY just.. they think of it as weird!
[100% foreigner, it was shocking to Henry!]
LSG: Oh, so they think they like men?
[Overseas, it may lead to the misconception of being gay!]
Henry: Yes. So..
[About his first meeting with the suju hyungs?]
Henry: When I first came to Korea, when I met the hyungs, in the waiting room they would carelessly hit my butt harshly! And they’d be like “WOW HENLI! Blahblahblah~”!
[Welcoming Henry the foreigner starting from a butt-greeting!]
Henry: Or also hold— sit—– they would HUG me like this. (tn. he started off using the correct word, then he changed his sentence and made a mess, and then he finally used the English word “hug”, which is also used in Korean)
[Hyungs welcoming him with hugs too]
Henry: So back then I was like “WOW! Just.. woh!”, I thought they were all gay!
[I thought everybody in Super Junior was gay!]
[Henry who got a big shock on his first meeting!]
KHD: Who would hit your butt?
[Who on earth hit his butt?]
Henry: Teukie hyung REALLY hit it A LOT!
[The core of all misunderstandings Leader Leeteuk!]
Henry: Well, this butt-slapping thing was okay to some extent but suddenly, going to the waiting room..
[He got accustomed to the butt-greeting shortly after, but?]
[More surprising incidents?]
Henry: I looked nearby and there was Kim Heechul.. (tn. he forgets to add the “hyung” honorific, which is kinda disrespectful lol ♥ so everybody laughs at him because of that)
[First meeting with Space Superstar Kim Heechul!]
Henry: At that time..
[Handsome Heechul with long hair!]
Henry: His hair was long and I was like “Wow, that’s totally.. I thought he could possibly be a trans. Trans!”
[Agh, seeing Kim Heechul as a transgender!]
Henry: I meant transgender! So back then it was really hard on me..
[A big misunderstanding due to Heechul’s pretty looks!]
LSG: Ooh because you thought he looked pretty with that long hair!
Henry: Yes, yes.
KHD: What was your misconception of Shindong?
[Seeing Shindong, what kind of misunderstanding was there?]
Henry: Oh just.. he was the nicest.
[That he was the nicest!]
(tn. I am pretty sure he didn’t hear or understand the word 오해, which means “misconception/misunderstanding” and Kang Hodong said it really quickly; he probably REALLY meant to say that Shindong was the nicest.. the tone of his voice sounded really earnest. Just my thought though ^^ ..maybe he is really a little viper like Kyuhyun~)
[There’s no way of misunderstanding Kim Heechul and his complete opposite!]
Eunhyuk: Really, the culture is rather different, I had the same experience as Henry, really..
[Eunhyuk too, a culture shock seeing Henry?]
Eunhyuk: As soon as he first met Lee Sooman sunsaengnim, he used the wrong words with him.
[Wrong words incident on his first meeting with Lee Sooman President of the Agency?]
[What did he say?]
Eunhyuk: And it’s still difficult for me, REALLY!
[But it’s still difficult for the sunbae who debuted 7 years ago!]
Shindong: Me too, when I see him– oh, sunsaengnim came out, “Hello!”
Eunhyuk: Really, doing a 90 degree bow.
Shindong: But when Henry ssi first met him, what did you do?
[Henry’s first meeting with CEO Lee Sooman?]
Henry: I didn’t know who he was, so I just.. was like “Hey who’s that person?”, “Oh SM’s boss!”
Henry: “Aah I see”, “Oh, Mr. Lee?”
[Informal(?) HELLO~ Mister Lee (Lee ssi…)]
Eunhyuk: He really did that!
[Agh!] [Lee ssi, hello?]
(tn. I’m sure you all know by now that Henry was supposed to bow to Lee Sooman and say 안녕하세요 Hello ㅡ he was not supposed to say “Mister Lee” because that’s not formal enough; they all call him “sunsaengnim”, which means “teacher” and it has the suffix -nim, which is a honorific. Also, he pronounces the “L” in “Lee”, which is actually supposed to be “silent” like in 이특 Leeteuk / Eeteuk)
Henry: The conversation was like “Nice to meet you! (tn. in English) Ah, uh, b-b-business card— if you have a business card, if you give it to me, I will contact you.” That’s what I did!
[All the surrounding members are flustered!]
KHD: And now? What do you call him now?
Henry: Now, I’m still all~ “Oh, Mr. Lee!”
[Still in English, Mister Lee~]
Henry: Because I had been doing that since the first time! So uh, Mr. Kang~! (tn. to Kang Hodong)
[Mister Kang (Kang ssi!)]
[Henry Come on! Enraged Kang ssi!]
[Hey Henry, you must never go there~!]
[Culture shock, I knew he was kidding~]
KHD: Because he doesn’t know, yes!
LSG: Yes, because he doesn’t know!
LSG: But what did Lee Sooman sunsaengnim say when you called him Mr. Lee?
[Mister Lee… CEO Lee Sooman’s reaction?]
Eunhyuk: Really awkwardly “Fine, because after all we’re all friends~~~” (tn. perfectly imitating Lee Sooman’s voice)
[Mister Lee: Fine, because after all we’re all friends~]
[Super Junior M Henry, a great deal of trouble to become a Korean man!]
[Wheel of Fortune VS Suju like men]
[Surprised again by his first taste of punishment on Korean Entertainment!]
