Donghae’s Motto Life :
“남들에게 손가락질 받지말자!” ( “Let’s not point at others!”)
“When many people take my words the wrong way, some say that I look a cold hearted person or I have an attitude problem. People who know me very well never say such a thing. But other often take my words the wrong way.”
“From now on, as an actor, I will show everyone the other side of Lee Donghae, walking even further, will grow up and work harder too”

Several days before his official debut he made a brief appearance on November 2005 at SBS’s “Shin DongYeop’s There Is There Isn’t” panel.
When Dong Hae first entered into SM as a trainee, the 2 person he knew were Xiah Jun Su from DBSK and Lee Hyuk Jae (Eun Hyuk) from SUJU. The 3 of them are of the same age and were really closed to each other.
Due to Dong Hae loved to cry a lot, both of them tend to bully him and will always try to find ways to make him cry and it seemed that it will always work and he will always be tricked over and over again and ended up hiding into the washroom and cried.

He’s closed to Jung Yun Ho from DBSK, as they were not only from the same hometown, but were really closed during their pre-debut days, they stayed together with Hee Chul too. The 3 of them had a name, The Ddabbong Brothers. Hee Chul really dote on Dong Hae a lot.
Donghae disliked skinship as he will became really shy. but He likes to skinship with his fellow members Super Junior esp Eunhyuk.
He said that he hates celebrating his birthday. Because last year, Super Junior went somewhere to perform. He was looking forward to 12 o’clock to come when all his members would give him presents but they all were busy doing their own things, making him so sad, so every time they talk about birthdays on air he would always complain.
Donghae used to reside on the 4th storey of a small apartment. Everyday after school, he would press the bell of his neighbor’s house (1st storey) and run away, until he got caught once.

Before he debuted, he was afraid of taking the airplane, so he never went to any of the 3 school trip to Jeju Island during high school.
He is sensitive to his surroundings, will not be able to fall asleep for the whole night if he is sleeping elsewhere other than home. It’s because he felt insecure when he does not see anything familiar to him in the surrounding.

Would you kick him?” Donghae replies, “Huh? I still won’t kick him.”
- Donghae is afraid to be alone, when he eats, he needs someone to accompany him, or else he refuses to eat.
- He doesn’t understand why when he autographs for someone, that person will thank him, he feels he should be the one thanking, thanks to all who loves SJ.
- He thinks “Donghae” isn’t his name, yet he still writes his name as “Donghae”.
