[IMPORTANT!] VOTE SUPER JUNIOR and SUP3RJUNIOR! http://global.mnet.com/site/list.m

There’s one K-Pop idol group that’s so huge, it’s impossible to ignore. The sheer number of members in the group, their undying popularity, and the total number of awards that they’ve won in their musical career. In fact, this SM Entertainment idol group is so huge, we don’t really know where to begin profiling its 13 members – at least we know for a fact that at their peak, they had 13 members.

Super Junior originally debuted in 2005 with 12 members consisting of leader Leeteuk, Heechul, Han Geng, Yesung, Kangin, Shindong, Sungmin, Eunhyuk, Siwon, Donghae, Ryeowook, and Kibum. In 2006, Kyunhyun joined the group. It was said that Super Junior, unlike most K-Pop idol groups, would experience line-up changes off and on again, with new members replacing selected members every year to keep the group “fresh”. Hence the rotations that followed suit over the years.

The boys first appeared on Inkigayo in November 2005 but it wasn’t until the release of “Sorry, Sorry” that Super Junior received international recognition. “Sorry, Sorry” was their best-selling single all throughout 2009 and eventually made them the best-selling K-Pop artistes for three years in a row. In addition to that, the group earned a whopping total of 11 Mnet Asian Music Awards trophies and 12 from the Golden Disk Awards. Just this year, Super Junior was nominated for MTV Europe Music Awards’ “Best Asian Act”. Ace!

Since then, Super Junior has gone through major changes e.g. divided into smaller subgroups to target different music industries and audiences, dealing with the departure/hiatus of some of their members. And to date, Super Junior has nine active members, Yesung, Kangin, Shindong, Sungmin, Eunhyuk, Siwon, Donghae, Ryeowook, and Kyuhyun. In June 2012, the super group released sixth album, “Sexy, Free & Single”, with a title track of the same name:

The album debuted at first place on the Gaon Chart and it stayed there for three weeks in a row. In two months, “Sexy, Free & Single” sold about 459,182 copies. It came as no surprise when we heard that Super Junior is currently in the running to bag the “Disk Album of The Year” award for “Sexy, Free & Single” at “Samsung GALAXY The 27th Golden Disk Awards in Kuala Lumpur”!

Other facts about Super Junior as follows:

  1. In 2008, Hankyung filed a lawsuit against SM Entertainment claiming that the provisions of his contract were unlawful, harsh, and against his rights. He left Super Junior after he won it.
  2. When Eunhyuk was younger, he joined a beauty competition where the (male) contestants had to dress up and act like females.
  3. Ryeowook can play the piano and he plays it well.
  4. Sungmin likes to cook for his Super Junior members. But when he’s cooking, no one is allowed in the kitchen.
  5. In 2007, Super Junior was involved in a car accident that required some of its members to be hospitalized. Eunhyuk, who wore a cast and then a bandage for several weeks after that, still has the scars on his hand.
  6. Leeteuk once confessed that when he was much younger, his ambition was to someday become nurse.
  7. Donghae has phasmophobia, also known as the fear of ghosts. Because of that, he sleeps with a nightlight.

Here’s another fact: Super Junior is slated to make an appearance at “Samsung GALAXY The 27th Golden Disk Awards in Kuala Lumpur” (GDA).

  1. I’m not too sure of some of the facts that it listed.

  2. some of the ‘other facts’ are a bit…………………..zzz

  3. Hanny’s lawsuit against SME was 2009 not 2008~he left before the lawsuit was settled in favor to him
    Also, it wrote about the horrible car accident but didn’t mention Kyu’s worst injury among the members then…

  4. haha…why mentioning about hyuk’s joined beauty contest..so sudden??not important at all…and about the car accident,,kyu who got the worst injury…i think the one who wrote this not fully knowing about Suju…..-_-”

  5. Weeww..it seems the writter not ELF -____-“

    • Or just someone who did not do much research. If anyone searched for “Super Junior car accident,” Kyuhyun would be the first topic to show up.

  6. The facts are wrong!

  7. yeah just post random stuff like Eunhyuk dressing as a female or something instead of something relevant as a group like… “Super Junior-M just made a comeback with break-down” Or, “During the car accident, they were rushed into a hospital and member kyuhyun had to stay hospitalized for god knows how much hanging onto his dear life” or, “SJ original name was Super Junior 05”
    SERIOUSLY, anything that would make people go “Oh, wow” instead of “loldafuq is this?”
    Done ranting. -wipes sweat-
    GOGO SJ i hope they do well in GDA<3

    • Oh and “Ryeowook can play the piano, and plays it well” /facepalm. Most of them can play the piano on different levels. Again, boring stuff. ;c
      LOL i sound mean now.
      I wish they did profiles better, maybe choose a person who’s a fan and does some research c: I hope other idol’s didn’t get such…bland profiles XD

  8. waaa i gotta go to my bus stop right now…saving this page so i can read it on the bus mwahahaha~ XD

  9. stop complaining, i think it was a pretty good profile.
    of course there are some mistakes but it doesn’t matter so much, the writer is not an ELF after all, he just wrote a short biography for every groups at GDA.
    but lol at Eunhyuk’s beauty contest, it was so random 🙂

  10. i like it when non-fans (i mean look at those extras *facepalms* talk about how unbeatable they are XD reminds me that we aren’t all delusional; they really are exceptional :3

  11. LOL. i am a Malaysian ELF and the fact that the writer didnt do research before writing is quite embarassing. anyway, nvr mind, as long as no disturbing things are in. =)
