Park Jeong-su is a South Korean actor and singer-songwriter, currently affiliated with the K-pop boy band, Super Junior, and its subgroups, Super Junior-T and Super Junior-H. He is more popular by his stage name ‘Leeteuk’. After being accepted into SM Entertainment's Starlight Casting System, he was initially slated for debut as the member of boy band ‘Smile’. But the project was dropped and Park was placed in the rotational group ‘Super Junior’ with eleven other boys instead. As he was older than the other trainees, he was designated as the leader. They made their first official appearance in 2005 on SBS’ music show ‘Popular Songs’ and the positive response it garnered prompted the release of their debut album only a month later. It too turned out to be a massive hit. Since then, ‘Super Junior’ has emerged as one of the most successful groups in K-pop history, earning the genre’s best-selling artist accolade for the last four years. Leeteuk has established himself as a star outside the group as well; he has a thriving career as a solo artist, has acted in both films and television, and hosted variety shows. He has won several awards for his contribution to the entertainment industry.
