Leeteuk was born on July 1, 1983. He has an elder sister, Park In-young, who is a singer and an actress. His father, Park Yong-in, and his mother divorced in 1998. He has spoken about his parents' relationship publicly in several variety shows.
When Leeteuk traveled to Apgujeong-dong for sightseeing in early 2000, he was recommended by a talent scout to audition for SM Entertainment's Starlight Casting System. After several test recordings and performances, he signed with SM Entertainment and became a trainee. That same year, he appeared as an extra in the drama All About Eve which aired on MBC TV, and briefly as a model for Pepsi in 2002. In 2003, he was put into five-member boyband Smile, with future bandmate Donghae and aimed to be a rival group of TVXQ. The project was dropped and they were then put into rotational group Super Junior along with ten other boys. Being older than the other trainees, Leeteuk became the leader of the group.
Leeteuk officially debuted as part of the 12-member project group, Super Junior 05 on November 6, 2005 on SBS' music program Popular Songs, performing their first single, "Twins (Knock Out)". Their debut album SuperJunior05 (Twins) was released a month later on December 5, 2005 and debuted at number three on the monthly MIAK K-pop album charts.
Apart from Super Junior activities, he has hosted several television shows. In 2005, he become the host of a weekly music show, M! Countdown, his first gig as a host, with fellow band mates, Shindong and Eunhyuk. It eventually landed him his first solo hosting act in the reality show Leeteuk's Love Fighter, which aired on the cable television channel Mnet in 2008. He received praises for his act as a newcomer and reveived a plaque of appreciation by the crew members on his last appearance on the show.
In March 2006, SM Entertainment began to recruit new members for the next Super Junior generation. However, this was met with fans' objections and strong opposition to the rotational style (much like popular rotational groups in Japan's pop music industry) that the group intended to be. Thus, plans changed and the company declared a halt in forming future Super Junior generations. Following the addition of thirteenth member Kyuhyun, the group dropped the suffix "05" and officially named as Super Junior. The re-polished group's first CD single "U" was released on June 7, 2006, which was their most successful single until the release of "Sorry, Sorry" in March 2009. In February 2007, Leeteuk was placed in the trot-singing subunit, Super Junior-T. The subunit debuted with the single "Rokuko", which quickly reached number one in weekly music chart and held the spot for two consecutive weeks. A year later, Leeteuk became a member of Super Junior-H. Besides music, he also participated in Super Junior-centric television show such as Mystery 6 and Full House. He also made his first film appearance with Super Junior members in Attack on the Pin-Up Boys in 2007, taking the role of the school panda mascot.
Leeteuk became a radio DJ for KBS Super Junior's Kiss The Radio (Sukira) with Eunhyuk in August 2006. From March to June 2011, bandmate Yesung temporarily replaced Eunhyuk while he was away on promotional activities for Super Junior-M's third EP Perfection. Leeteuk left the program in November 2011 due to conflicting work schedule.
On April 19, 2007, almost two months after Super Junior-T's release of their first single "Rokuko", Leeteuk was seriously injured in a car accident, along with Shindong, Eunhyuk, Kyuhyun, and two managers. When returning home after a recording of the radio show Super Junior Kiss the Radio, they were on the highway when the front left tire burst as the driver was switching lanes. The van ran into the guard rail on the driver's side, and skidded for about 30 metres. At some point, the momentum caused the van to flip over on its right side.
While Shindong and Eunhyuk suffered minor injuries, Leeteuk and Kyuhyun sustained more serious injuries, which required both to be hospitalised. Leeteuk had glass shards embedded in his back and above his eyes, requiring over 170 stitches. Leeteuk was discharged from the hospital on April 30, 2007. Due to this accident, Leeteuk did not take part in Super Junior's debut big-screen production, Attack on the Pin-Up Boys in 2007. He was credited as the panda mascot at the end of the film, while it was later confirmed that it had been Ryeowook who portrayed it throughout most of the film.
From 2009 onwards, Leeteuk, along with Eunhyuk and Shindong, were regular guests on SBS' Strong Heart, where they hosted a special segment, Boom Academy, headed by entertainer Boom. In October 2009, when Boom enlisted for mandatory military service, Leeteuk took over and the segment's name was temporarily changed to Teukigayo, or Teuk Academy. He was a frequent guest on Star King, also on SBS, with fellow Super Junior members.

From September to November, Leeteuk became a dad in Hello Baby season 4 with girl group Sistar. Leeteuk also became part of MBC reality show We Got Married, as a new on-screen couple, with actress Kang So-ra becoming his on-screen wife. As of the April 10, 2012 broadcast, following the change in MCs and the departure of Shindong from Strong Heart, the show was re-vamped with Leeteuk and Eunhyuk billed as two of the 'six-fixed guests'.

SM initially released a statement saying that the trio had died in a car accident, but it was later discovered that it had been a murder-suicide, with Yong-in strangling his parents and then hanging himself. A note left near the bodies read "I will bring my parents with me. My children, I am sorry. Please forgive me." It was later revealed that Park Yong-in had been dealing with depression for a long time, and a police report stated "We discovered that Leeteuk's father was trying to make ends meet in order to take care of his parents.
