One more day to November 6th, marking five years since Asia’s popular group Super Junior debuted in 2005 through SBS Inkigayo. What have the boys accomplished in their 5 years together?
As leader Leeteuk is always proud to say, Super Junior is made up of multi-talented members who work under the philosophy of ‘separately and together,’ a concept snubbed by others then but which is now a trend.
Members Siwon, Heechul, Kibum and Donghae are working as actors, while Leeteuk, Eunhyuk and Shindong are popular radio DJs and variety show hosts. Kyuhyun, Yesung, Sungmin and Ryeowook, on the other hand, are actively participating in musicals and OSTs.
Super Junior is also the first to introduce the unit system in Kpop, with their debuting of ballad subunit Super Junior KRY, trot idol subunit Super Junior T, Super Junior M which is targeted specially on the Chinese market, and Super Junior Happy which showcases bright and fun music.
This diverse genres and talents might have been the secret to Super Junior conquering Asia, as marked by stellar CD sales, numerous awards, and packed attendance in their appearances and specially in their Asian tour Super Show
Looks like the 5-year idol group curse will not befall them. Super Junior will hold their 5th year anniversary party in Korea College, Seoul on the 6th with their loyal ELFs.
