- He hates pink because SungMin’s cupboard is just opposite his bed & full of PINKY stuff. (SungMin loves pink)
- 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 story of a small apartment. Everyday after school, he would press the bell of his neighbor’s house (1st story) 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.
- Donghae, who 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.
- Donghae left a message titled “ELF I LOVE YOU” in the fan cafe and sungmin called him and told him he got the title wrong. he typed LOVE as LVOE and he was so embarrassed.
- When Kibum first came to Korea, Donghae’s the 1st person to hug him and welcome him.
- When he was small, he played games with his friend that needed them to be divided in groups. Whichever group that he is in, will always lose in the game.
- He once promised his father that under any circumstances, he will not drink alcohol.
- No matter how much he eats, he will not gain fat. Whenever he feels like he had gain a bit of weight, he’ll exercise. And the first place to slim down is his face.
- Donghae is really afraid of Shindong’s snoring, and his loud breathing while sleeping scares him too. It’s almost impossible to sleep at night, for him.
- He likes the feeling of being protected, being cared for. & because he’ll feel lonely easily, he never eats alone. He needs to have someone to eat with him.
- Since he hates to eat alone, Donghae often sits in other members’ to wait for them to be done working so he can go eat with them.

(note: he not longer rooms with Sungmin)
- He’s not really good at searching things online. He doesn’t really even know how to use ‘Naver’ to search. Thus he doesn’t like going online, not to mention shopping online too.
- Donghae really admires those taxi drivers and public transport drivers. Not only because his father used to be a taxi driver, but also because he himself will feel tired and aches all over after driving for half an hour and thus find those people impressive as they can drive all day long.
- Donghae is very affectionate so his methods of waking up the other members are to either pad their butts or go hug them out of bed.
- He is afraid of ghosts so he sleeps with a nightlight.

- Donghae wanted to become a singer because he saw Boa Kwon. who is the same age. performed on stage and thought she was inspirational. A few years later he and Boa stared in a music video together.
- Donghae is very sensitive and therefore cries very easily. Once, before debut, fellow group member Eunhyuk and DBSK member Xiah Junsu sarcastically teased him about becoming an arrogant star once he debuted. Donghae became so scared/upset that he went to the bathroom and punched the wall while crying.
- Donghae cares for his Donsaengs very much, when KyuHyun was in the hospital, Donghae was the one that visisted him the most.
