On April 9, Hangeng and Lee Soo Man both attended the ‘16th Top Chinese Music Awards’ held in Shenzhen, China. During the event, Hangeng received the Best Male Singer Award and he thanked his fans and staff for their support.
Moreover, Hangeng reveals, “I am also thankful to Lee Soo Man. He is the reason that I am on this stage. He led me to the path of becoming a singer.”
He also adds, “If it was not for Lee Soo Man, I would not be on this stage right now as a singer. I want to take this opportunity to thank him,” and bows.
Hangeng is known to be a former member of Super Junior since its debut back in 2005 and became the first ever non-Korean celebrity to formally debut in South Korea. However, he left the group in 2009 and filed a lawsuit against SM Entertainment citing the label’s unlawful and discriminatory treatment. Following his leave from the group, he went back to China and pursued a solo career. In 2011, Hangeng and SM Entertainment has come to a mutual agreement allowing him to no longer continue his contract.
He is known for his songs, “Wild Cursive,” “Say No,” “My Logo,” “Heartache Notebook” and more.
Aside from singing, he has also pursued a career in acting by appearing on the shows, “A Chinese Odyssey Part Three,” “Seek McCartney” and “Ever Since We Love.”
