Kyuhyun, who ended 17 years of living in a dormitory, revealed his home for the first time.

In MBC's 'I Live Alone', which aired on the 19th, Cho Kyu-sung's active life as a soccer star in Denmark and Kyuhyun's single life were revealed. According to Nielsen Korea, a viewership rating research company, the household viewership rating for 'I Live Alone', which aired the previous day, was 9.4% (based on the metropolitan area), ranking first in its time slot and first among Friday entertainment shows. The 2049 viewership rating, which is a key indicator for advertising officials and a key indicator of channel competitiveness, also recorded 4.4% (based on the metropolitan area), ranking first in the same time slot and first among Friday entertainment programs.

The best one-minute lead belonged to Kyuhyun. When Jeon Hyun-moo saw him carefully mixing and applying cosmetics in order after showering in the studio, everyone burst into laughter by comparing it to Jeonju bibimbap, and the viewer rating per minute soared to 10.9%.

Kyuhyun, Super Junior's golden youngest member, irreplaceable vocalist, and entertainer, revealed his daily life after quitting his 17-year dorm life and living alone for five and a half months. When asked about his thoughts on independence, Kyuhyun expressed satisfaction with his independent life, saying, "I'm so happy. I don't know why I didn't think of living alone before (I don't know). If I had lived alone even once, I would have gone out right away."

Kyuhyun's house is a simple apartment, and he can't decorate it because he rents it monthly. Kyuhyun's thrifty side attracted attention as he brought most of the items he used from his dorm, except for the furniture and appliances that were sponsored(?) by acquaintances such as TVXQ's Max Changmin, Super Junior's Eunhyuk, and actor Ahn Jae-hyun. Kyuhyun used diet cup ramen to make diet japchae rice, the secret to losing 6 kg, and ate it for breakfast. Afterwards, we played games and watched videos at the same time before getting ready to go out. The sight of Kyuhyun, a video addict(?) who watches videos even while taking a shower, made us laugh.

After getting dressed up, Kyuhyun headed to a large supermarket. Kyuhyun looked at the grocery list he had prepared in advance and showed his Power J tendency by putting only what he wanted into the shopping cart and not making impulse purchases. I also spent rationally, including checking the ingredients of the products I wanted to buy. However, Kyuhyun's self-control broke down in front of the liquor store. I finished shopping in a hurry and ended up with a price close to 880,000 won. Even though he had to have his ID checked because of the amount of alcohol he purchased, the sight of Kyuhyun being a happy rower made people laugh.

As soon as Kyuhyun returned home, he turned on J mode again and quickly finished organizing his shopping items. As a lover, he had his own rules. Kyuhyun revealed alcohol from all over the world that filled his liquor warehouse, liquor refrigerator, and two wine cellars. He attracted attention by labeling each person who gave him alcohol as a gift and revealing his own rule of drinking while thinking of them. In fact, he, who is famous as a man of upright living, made people laugh by revealing his drinking and expressing his resentment, saying, "(People) think of me as someone who drinks every day."

The dinner menu is stir-fried pork and udon. Kyuhyun marinated frozen front leg meat, divided into 100g portions, with seasoning and quickly completed two dishes using various cooking utensils. He also attracted attention by watching a romantic movie while drinking whiskey to add a touch of elegance. However, the sight of 35-year-old Kyuhyun being embarrassed and not knowing what to do when a sticky scene suddenly appeared in the movie caused a burst of laughter.

Meanwhile, the second part of the story of Cho Gyu-sung, who transferred to Denmark's FC Midtjylland last week and is now living alone in Silkeborg, a city reminiscent of a frozen kingdom, has been released. Jo Gyu-seong, who was introduced to cooking for the first time in Denmark and found it fun, made stir-fried pork and seaweed soup for dinner. In particular, Gyu-seong expressed his confidence in the taste of seaweed soup, which is said to be made by hand, saying, “It’s good enough to be sold in Denmark.”

The day after an important game, Cho Gyu-seong reduced his movements as much as possible and stored up his stamina for the evening game. I repeated eating and sleeping three times. For breakfast, I had a simple meal of cereal and fruit, and for dinner, I had egg and soy sauce rice, which is said to be eaten every day of the game. After finishing the third wake-up at 3 p.m., Gyu-seong Cho dressed up in a suit, the team uniform worn by players during home games, and headed to Midtjylland's home stadium.

This match was the last match of 2023 and was a derby match against the rival Viborg FF team, with first place in the Danish league at stake. When Cho Gyu-seong, number 10, appeared on the field, the home fans cheered, making his popularity real. Cho Gyu-seong, who went into the game with the intention of scoring a goal, scored a penalty kick in a situation where Midtjylland was behind by 1 point, resulting in a 1-1 draw, and became the best player, scoring his first multiple goals in the league and giving the team victory. .

Midtjylland, which won the derby game 5-1, was in a festive mood. After providing fan service at an impromptu fan meeting held on his way home from work, Jo Gyu-seong returned home and made a video call with his mother, turning on his affectionate son mode. As a soccer player, he has a goal of winning the Asian Cup, but as a human being, Jo Kyu-seong said that he is happy every day without any big dreams.
