141114 [KBS News] Super Junior Kyuhyun 1st Mini Single ‘At Gwanghwamun’ #1 at All Music Chart [Video]November 14, 2014 at 5:02 am | Posted in Albums, Drama/Film/TV/CFs, Kyuhyun, News/Rumors, Pictures/Videos, Wonderboys | Leave a comment
Super Junior’s Kyuhyun revealed that he was able to make his solo debut due to what SM’s Lee Soo Man said.
On November 13, Kyuhyun attended the showcase and press conference for his first solo album At Gwanghwamun at the Yes 24 Muv Hall in Seogyo-dong, Mapo-gu and explained the process of his solo debut.
When asked, “Why do you think you were the first to make the solo debut from Super Junior?” Kyuhyun answered, “I think it’s thanks to the popularity I gained from variety shows and my likeable and friendly image.”
Kyuhyun said, “I like songs by Sung Si Kyung, Park Hyo Shin and Kim Dong Ryul sunbaenims. My taste of music suited autumn the best and I also communicated actively with numerous songwriters as I worked on Super Junior songs. That helped out greatly.”
Then Kyuhyun added, “Actually, the biggest reason is because Lee Soo Man sunsaengnim often said, ‘I think it’s about time for Kyuhyun to go solo’ at company dinners. I think it’s because of that.”
Meanwhile, Kyuhyun’s first mini album At Gwanghwamun was participated by famous songwriters and teams, including Kenzie, who wrote numerous hit songs, pianist Yiruma, Brown Eyed Soul’s Jung Yeop & Eco Bridge, songwriter Yoon Young Jun, Yang Jae Sun, TVXQ’s Max Changmin and more.
The album includes seven songs, including the title At Gwanghwamun as well as Eternal Sunshine, At Close, Moment of Farewell, One Confession, Flying, Deep In The Night and My Thoughts, Your Memories. Kyuhyun will begin promotions starting with KBS 2TV’s Music Bank on November 14.

7. [+286, -12] Didn’t think SM could produce a song of this quality ㅋㅋ but the more I listen to it, the more I realize that it’s mostly Kyuhyun’s talent and not the song itself that’s good ㅋㅋ It was funny how he sang perfectly despite all the distractions on Radio Star yesterday ㅋㅋ live without any bgm, and I thought it was cool how his facial expression didn’t change as he hit the high notes..

▷ November, 6th, 2005
One male group has debuted. Their first stage was at SBS-TV ‘Popular Music’. More than 1 thousand fans crowded the broadcasting company in order to see the first recording. A little fan meeting was opened after the stage was over.▷ November, 11th, 2014
This group has their 9th debut anniversary. There were many changes. They swept the awards domestically. They also changed the history of Asian charts. No.1 of the most and the longest are all their records.
They appeared with the title of ‘Asian’s gateway’. Who are these guys that are not just ‘Junior’s?
‘SuperJunior’ has their 9th debut anniversary. They have only 1 year left to the decade which the period makes the mountains and rivers change. They are still heading hard for their goal to the longest group.
How would have SuperJunior’s 9 years been? ‘STARCAST’ asked 9 questions to ‘SuperJunior’.
‘How was your 9 years?”
Please focus on ‘reservist’ Leeteuk’s ‘honorific’ reply, ‘great star in space’ Heechul’s chic reply, humorous(?) Siwon’s story, reply of Kyuhyun who is always serious when he’s out from ‘Golden Fishery Radio Star’, and the youngest-like but not the youngest Ryeowook’s wit.
Shindong who is spending time with his family since he has enlistment ahead and Donghae who couldn’t make time due to tight schedule, and Yesung who is serving the military now couldn’t participate in the Q&A. Please be with us on the 10th and 11th anniversary~!
① It’s first about the 9th anniversary for the debut= ‘SuperJunior’ is the root of large male idol group. 9 years is also unbelievable to ‘SuperJunior’. Europe and South America including Asia such as Korea, China, and Japan are their stomping ground. They conveyed gratitude that they could be together for 9 years.
“Time has flown so quickly. I still feel like a rookie. We debuted on September 6th in 2005 by letting go of the 5-year trainee period, but I cannot believe it’s already the 9th anniversary for our debut. A year passes quickly when we go on a tour after releasing an album. The 9th anniversary is very meaningful and also gives me the thought of ‘already’ at the same time. It was possible thanks to fans that care and love us exist although members all did their best. SuperJunior and I will do our best not only for the 9th anniversary but also in the future too” (Leeteuk)
“Thank you ELF that accompanied us for 9 years^^. It has only been 9 years~. Let’s be together always!” (Ryeowook)
“Actually, it still hasn’t hit me yet. I only feel that time flies so fast since we have a long way to go.” (Kyuhyun)
“I cannot feel that it’s already the 9th anniversary since SuperJunior has debuted. I thank you so much. The more exciting thing is that SuperJunior will be together in the future.” (Siwon)
“I don’t feel that a long time has passed, but it has only been 9 years now. I’m looking forward more to those many days that we can be together in the future. I hope fans would also make more memories by getting old (?) together.” (Eunhyuk)
“I think time has passed in a twinkle… There is much to show you yet and I would like to show new image through acting 10 years and 20 years and continuously. I will do my best.” (Kang In)
“I think 9th or 10th anniversaries don’t have much meaning. I just wish that we could be together as much as we have spent time together until now.” (Heechul)
We say that ‘there is no day for the ink on the passport to dry~’ by seeing this, right?
China, Thailand, Japan, Hong Kong…..
They say that there are no countries they’ve not been to.
They say that they run to wherever they are.
Who is this with global fandom?
We met SuperJunior’s official fan club, ‘ELF’ on 16th. Members that gathered this day aged in 20’s~30’s. They say that they are fans that went through all sorts of hardships including dogfights. They say they’ve watched only SuperJunior since 2005 until now.
How did ‘ELF’ fall into SuperJunior? We will release personalities of each member which only ‘ELF’ knows. The legendary episode which only belongs to the oldest group is a bonus~. We wrote fans’ names in false names for the protection of human rights (?).
◆ Introduction: The day when they fell into SuperJunior
This is an official question of ‘★&fan’. How did ‘ELF’ fall into SuperJunior? As like other idol group fans, the answers differed. As like SuperJunior is an original ‘multirole-idol’ the reasons varied.
“Actually, every fandom would have been surprised when SuperJunior debuted. It is because they were totally different from boy groups which SM announced in the meanwhile. SuperJunior acted variously as singer, entertainer, actor, and gagmen…. So how ‘ELF’ fell into them would all vary.” (Park Jung Mul)
“She’s right. I like Heechul the most among SuperJunior members. I got interested in him after watching KBS ‘Sharp’ when I was high school senior. I got attracted by him since he was so pretty. I started fan club activities earnestly right after the SAT was over, and I still like them until now.” (Kim Petal)
“I fell into him after watching them entertaining. SuperJunior members appeared whenever I turned on the TV. Kang In did the hardest among them. He was unique from other previous idols with his handsome face. I went to a music broadcast after that I got to like him more after seeing him in real.” (Kang In Ah)
“I’m a 4-year-old overseas ‘ELF’. I’m from Hong Kong. I accidentally got to know SuperJunior while I was watching a K-pop program. I knew many of K-pop groups, but their charisma was more intense. I liked both of their song and performance. Maybe Hong Kong fans fell in love with them by seeing images of them on stage.” (Virginia)
[OSEN=Lee Hye Rin] SuperJunior is going to release special edition of their 7th regular album ‘THIS IS LOVE’ on the coming 23rd.
There are 13 tracks in total including 9 tracks from existing 7th album, newly arranged track ‘THIS IS LOVE’, and 3 new songs.
This album is composed of jacket which members participated in the album design directly by giving out each of their idea. It is going to be released in versions of each member.
SuperJunior not only ranked no.1 in US Billboard World Album Chart with their 7th regular album ‘MAMACITA’ which was released in August, but also ranked no.1 in Asian album charts such as in Taiwan and Hong Kong. They received hot responses such like seizing 9 trophies by sweeping the top of various music programs such as ranking no.1 in KBS ‘Music Bank’ for 2 consecutive weeks, MBC ‘Show! Music Core’ for 2 consecutive weeks and also SBS ‘Popular Music’ for 2 consecutive weeks.
