38

So… tired… balloons… too heavy…

And it’s no wonder. Six of Super Junior‘s members (Lee Teuk, Kang In, Shin Dong, Sung Min, Eun Hyuk and Ye Sang — just don’t ask me who’s who) participated in the 2008 Hope Marathon, walking the streets of Seoul for twenty-four hours. The marathon was part of SBS’s “Hope TV 24 We Are One Family” live broadcast and ended on Day 2 with a closing show where other pop groups and celebrities took the stage, including Brown Eyed Girls, SG Wannabe, SS501, and Moon Hee Jun.

Geez, it’s hard enough staying conscious for 24 hours straight. Adding constant physical activity would just about kill MY hope.

Seoul, May 9 through May 10.

Oh my gosh, they look so exhausted!

They should really take a full week off to rest. Maybe a month would be better....

Do they really need more sleep deprivation? Ah, well. Did it raise money for a good cause?

HAHAHAH.

Call me a sadist but that picture of Eeteuk's expression is just hilarious. He looks downright miserable and so tired. The balloons enhance the hilarity even more.

oh the poor boys! yesung injured his leg during the first day and leeteuk was limping~ at least they didn't make them perform at the end of it. i guess it's all worth it since it's for a good cause.

Awwww...bless them, they look so tired.

And...thought I would add to jippo's descriptions:

Cap + yellow scarf +zombie look = Eunhyuk

Cap + I have only 1 arm now = Kangin

Visor + yellow hand bandage (balloon strings chafe, man) = Sungmin

Other visor + I may die on the spot look = Leeteuk

:-D

lol Jo II your post made me crack up laughing. I remember one time when I walked from 2nd avenue back to my home in brooklyn and and that was 5 hours and I still remember the pain I was in that time. I can't imagine walking for 24 hours. This has boosted my respect for them 10 fold. I heard they raised over 250 million won for some school that was closing down.

Poor boys! I think it's kinda ridiculous that they volunteered to do this, even if it's for a good cause, they are always practically dead of fatigue anyway. Jungsu especially looks near death at most of his appearances, so I'm not sure what they were thinking putting him out there.

I'm also very curious as to how Yesung managed to injure himself on a *walk.*

our SuJu oppas look EXHAUSTED. but then, who wouldn't be after a 24 hour walk...

btw, yesung didn't twist his ankle or anything. at first, his foot was asleep but the pain got really bad and he had to be taken to the hospital :[

they look totally exhausted.
i hope they got some goooood sleep after that!

I was in that damn freaking marathon and all i felt was I was being used for publisity by super Junior. They definetly have no sleep deprivation. They had a masseuse with them they stop every 10 minutes or so for a message.. Hell! they did not even run, they just walk and they only run when the cameras were facing them.. best part was they did not even set up a resting tents for any of the fans. At 3 am the stupid juniors get to sleep with nice warm blankets..but the fans they had to wait in the cold by the river. Even the volunteers had to sleep by the river with NEWSPAPERS as their blankets. C'mon ...don't they know what is a marathon...they probably just act exhausted.. the people who were really exhausted were actually the fans and the volunteers ok. I thought I volunteered for a good cause but apparently the charity bodies pulled themselves out from the event ( I heard this from SBS-they told us when we started complaining later) so the event was mainly publisity...

puhahahahaha.
nerak: i was there too, along with my whole family. NOTT true at all. it's true that they stopped once in a while for a massage, but not every 10 minutes!
and did you not hear about yesung? he trudged/limped on and on until he had to be taken to the HOSPITAL. that's how hard he was trying. they obviously have to get some kind of rest!

and the fans and volunteers should have brought their own tents and stuff. we did. we only got 2 hours of sleep, but under "nice warm blankets" super junior just had it all prepared for them. it's not their fault none of the other ppl had the sense to bring their own supplies.

anyways, if they really did make them run/jog/walk for 24 hours straight, with no rest, no massage and no sleep, ELF would have killed whoever organized the event.

In reply to some of your guys' comments,
1] Shin Dong actually DID lose some weight.
"Super Junior’s member Shin Dong has different determination with others. In order to finish this marathon, he has gone on a diet by reducing his intake by a half and concentrate on exercise. He has successfully lost 3.5 kg as a result. Shin Dong said “I am worried about the marathon”. He said “I cannot run for a long distance”, but on the other hand he said “I am in a diet so that I can persist till the end, and I have lost 3.5 kg now. I have reduced my intake by a half for each day, and made a recipe to find out the exact calories in sugars and proteins. I am also exercising.”
2]Not only were Eeteuk and Shin Dong crying, all the others did too.
Anyhow, the marathon has ended and they all made it. They did extremely well too, even Yesung.

Having looked at these pics, I have discovered just what an evil streak I have in me. These guys look like death warmed over and I couldn't stop myself from laughing for 5 minutes straight. I'm sure it was gruelling and I would probably have died in the first 5 hours but the looks on their faces and the tears are just too funny. Anyway, whether they had breaks, slept in tents, had massages or whatever, I say kudos to them for doing it! Who the hell came up with this sadistic idea? Twenty-four hours of staying awake is torture enough even without having to walk.
