Super Junior member Kim Heechul revealed that he was once mistaken to be a cyborg which was confirmed by his group mate Kangin on an episode of “Ya Shim Man Man – Entertainers Village” which will be shown on 1st September.
Heechul revealed, “In a random check at the aiport when I was going overseas, I was stopped and questioned on whether I was a cyborg or not?”
Heechul had suffered serious injuries to his left leg in a car accident on 10th August 10, 2006 which resulted in the doctors having to insert iron rods into his leg. So that explains that although the metal detectors kept on beeping, Heechul didn’t carry any metal objects. The foreign airport staff was bewildered at the constant beeping not knowing that he had iron rods inside his left leg.
Heechul also revealed that the length of the iron rods in his leg was about 30cm which was about the thickness of one’s finger. Despite having iron rods inside his leg, he still carried on his training (dancing, etc) which led to the iron rods inside his leg to bend and making him very nervous.
