Leeteuk:

I wanted to become happy.. I always have been looking for the key to happiness. Now, I think I have found that key to happiness. Being able to wake up in the morning, meet people I want to meet, and laugh together and cry together…. Beloved family… Beloved members.. Beloved all family members of SM.. Beloved fans… I now realized that everything I’ve always felt is the key to happiness. I want to feel this happiness with everyone. Thank you, and thank you again; I love you, and I love you.. I hope everyone reading this post will be full of happiness and love.. I love you..!!

Heechul:

This is an album after 3 years for me. I want to try being a bit serious in the Thanks To this time. It’s already been 10 years since we debut.
There probably are people who are new to loving me, but I’m sure there are fans who’ve been loving me for 10 years now. I think about it whenever I’m zoning out in the car, or whenever I’m going to sleep..
What ‘fans’ are..
I don’t have much of ‘fan love’ (t/n: in other words, fan service), I am not nice, so why do people give love to someone like me, who, in some way, is like a mean 5 years old?
And a thought that popped in my head was to not to look for the reason, and to express myself some too. Play (together) like we are eternal friends.
And that made me look hard at fans’ faces like I’ll put a hole on their face. Because of my prosopagnosia, my level of memory with faces are at same level as a fish but
I tried to memorize each and everyone but!!! as expected, I couldn’t do it well kkkkkkkkkk ah sorry kkkkkkkkkkkkk I can’t help this kkkkkkkkkkkkk but still, I read the letters, and try to remember their faces. Lastly, my beloved babies. Hyung will speak informally now. We will grow old someday and get married too. I hope you will come to Super Show in future with your babies. Then I would get emotional and really touched. Let’s picture ‘eternity’ like that together, and be together for a long long time ^~^
I hope that you guys will meet good people (partners) and will live happily. You guys have to get married quickly so I feel less sorry when I get married too kk
But I have to first quit games and comic books first-ng.. Tremble tremble..
Anyways, I love you, my babies!!!! Ppo Ppo kiss~ ^3^

Kangin:

I realized too late that I am thankful for just being able to be together. I think I know a bit now.. That I was a greedy man who only received. I will now be the one giving. And my beloved family members, let’s live happily. I really love you. Grandmother who is watching me from heaven.. There are many promises I made with you that I couldn’t keep; I’ll live with them in my heart. Grandmother, do not worry about anything there and rest peacefully. And our fan ELF!! Oppas will protect you.

Shindong:

I am now repeating the process of writing and erasing. I really don’t know how to express this good feeling and thankful thoughts. Really. I will just!! Show it on the stage!! Everyone, sorry for being unable to express myself. Yes, that’s true. The people that have the hardest time while producing this album are the song writer, lyrics writer, singer, producer, choreographer, manager, stylist, photographer, etc.. there are countless people but!! You guys, who anticipate and listen, have to be there (for that to happen) so, sigh.. I think I was living with a really big delusion. How to say.. ‘I’m always showing you guys this really cool look of me, and the funny side of me! so you guys have to always anticipate and wait for me..’ Why did I think that way… Anyways thank you. I think this is the first time I wrote my true feelings on ‘Thanks To’, without calculating (what to say). Sorry, and sorry again. From now on, I will only write real ‘Thanks To’ on ‘Thanks To’s… Thank you, everlasting friends~

Sungmin:

An album to beloved ELF. Thank you for always being with me. You are my precious, everlasting, closest friend.

Eunhyuk:

Firstly, thanks to our fans for waiting for this album for a long time. During past 2 years, I’ve experienced many events. I was shaken, was very exhausted, received many scars, and for the first time, I thought about giving up. I remembered the young days when I first I dreamed of becoming a singer, the days when I was a trainee, and the days since I met Super Junior. Looking back at those days, I gave compliments to myself, and reflected on a lot of things too. And I imagined a bit about the future. In the end, I gained conviction for things I wanted to do, and things I have to do, and what allowed me to have that strength were fans who always stood by my side and loved me without changing, and Super Junior members. I think it’s not easy for a person to go back to ‘their first mindset’. So with a new mindset, I plan to enjoy the promotions this time. I hope you continue to cheer without any reserves for the road I will take from now on. I will repay to everyone with mindset that does not change, and with changing images(appearance/side). Thank you.

Donghae:

Dear Father/ Last time I saw you was around 2006 8/8 Tuesday 3AM, but it’s already 2014 8/21 Thursday. A lot of time has passed, right? ^^ Like the time that’s passed, the environment around, many people, thoughts, and appearance has changed a lot. Some changed for the better, some not. But I am always working hard so that my core that I am holding on, does not change a lot. Because you, father, are in that core too. You’d be disappointed if I changed to (not good/bad), so I am working hard to (not change) ^^ then you can compliment me when I meet you again. I’m still young, and I’m still the son that wants to receive compliments from father. But it’s been a really long time since I’ve been unable to hear those compliments. Soon, I will perform 100th concert performance; It would have been nice if father could have watched at least one of those 100 performances. It’s sad. I’m really thankful to be able to do a job that I love, be loved while doing that job, that there are people who cry, laugh, and be happy because of me-though, what am I (for them to feel that way for me)-, and that there are people who have dreams while watching me. I’m very thankful that those people exist, and I am thankful about everything, that I can feel that I am living a life that I am more thankful of. Complains, not being satisfied, being lazy… Looking back now, I can see that everything- even things that I didn’t feel good about- are thankful things. What I am most thankful about is that I am your son. It’s a letter to you after a long time. 2014 8/21 Thursday 7:04PM, after 2 years… Let’s talk again when another album comes out in future ^^ I love you, dad.
Dear Mom, Hyung, HyunGyum / Mom, don’t get sick. When you are sick, I feel even more hurt. There are many things I wasn’t able to feel when I wasn’t able to live with you when I was young, and now, living together, I feel them. I feel thankful from small things like being able to be together, being able to see you, and being able to touch you. When you look at me and smile, when you- who looked big when I was young- now look smaller than me, when you- who walked really fast- walk slower than me, and when I felt that you- who looked strong and powerful- have become weaker than me, and is depending on me, tears come to my eyes. Just don’t get sick. I love you mom^^ Beloved hyung, you are very tired, exhausted, and bored these days right? But I am happy and full of energy because of hyung. I think a lot about how I can do more for you, hyung. It’s not that I just want to give you something; it’s more like.. I’m thankful that I have a brother, and thankful that I can share with hyung. I hope hyung enjoys it a bit more, and I hope that you will be happy. I also hope that we brothers would rely on each other more. I love you, hyung.
HyunGyum-ah, hyung is proud and happy that you have a dream at such a young age. I hope you will work harder, and if you don’t want to get hit, listen to hyung more! hehe. Listen to mom, and sleep early.
Dear SJ/ There really is no need for words!! I like that we are together, I’m happy that we are together, and I’m thankful that whenever I feel tired and look back, you’re standing there by my side without a word^^ There’s no need for anything else, let’s just do well just among ourselves^^ Suju is the best hehe. Leader Teuk-ee hyung… I will trust hyung and go! and Yesung-ee hyung… If hyung were with us, we would have shined more. I will make it so that when hyung returns, hyung’s spot will shine more ^^ I love you hyung!
Grow your hand a bit, or I’ll just have a smaller mic prepared for you ^^ (Youngjoon-ee hyung, Byungjoon-ee hyung, Junghoon-ee hyung, Yongsun-ee hyung, MinGeun-ee hyung, Siyong-ee hyung, Yongsuk-ee)
We are Super Juni-or! ^^ Thank you and I love you.
Dear ELF/ You waited a really long time right? Me too me too mee too really!! hehe finally advancing out! ELF all over the world, are you ready?? We are ready ^^
In short words, because ELF exists, SuJu can breathe ^^ Please continue to let us breathe ^^ I love you, love you, love you, and love you^^ Always thankful and love you ^^

Siwon:

I feel the fast speed of time. It’s already 7jib…. Thankfully, thanks to your love and support, we were able to go around the world many times, and how many times did we stand on a dream-like stage… Thinking about it all, I’m thankful. I want to say thanks to beloved ELF all over the world who cheer for us without changing. And I want to say thanks to beloved family members, beloved Lee SooMan teacher, and staffs who always work hard to help us. If you guys weren’t there, we wouldn’t be at this position. Thank you again.
Thank you everyone.. Thank you God.. Please anticipate a lot from us, who are just starting now.

Ryeowook:

K-Pop & Latin America: The Brilliance of Super Junior’s ‘MAMACITA’ – From 140830

“MAMACITA” is the seventh album from the powerhouse K-Pop group Super Junior. The title track is heavily influenced by Spanish music and is supported by a Spaghetti Western music video which features cowboys, as well as bull fighters.

[youtube http://youtu.be/q_krT35dgDM]

In the video, Super Junior transform into modern day toreros. The choreography of “MAMACITA” incorporates moves from Flamenco, a form of dance and music from the southern region of Spain.

Within twelve hours of its release, the video for “MAMACITA” received close to 1.3 million views on YouTube.

Beyond the concept of the title song, “MAMACITA” demonstrates the awareness of SM Entertainment in regards to Super Junior’s growing Hispanic fanbase.

Super Junior toured Latin America in 2013, but did not make U.S. stops.

Super Junior is an interesting example of the global increase of interest in K-Pop. In 2013, Super Junior performed throughout South America, making stops for their Super Show 5 tour in Brazil, Peru, Chile, and Argentina.

The group did not perform in the United States but included Mexico as part of the Super Show 5 tour. Their Mexico City performance on November 7, 2013 had 15,994 fans in attendance which exceeded their per night attendance for shows in China, Philippines, and Singapore.

Prior to their tour stops in Mexico and South America, Super Junior were the focus on numerous television shows which illustrated their relevance to Korean pop including a feature on Megavision’s “Mucho Gusto.”

[youtube http://youtu.be/vDSnjndTGdg]

During Super Show 5, Super Junior received attention from major television networks in Latin America. TV Azteca, a network based out of Mexico, has been largely attributed for the spread of K-Pop in Mexico, by including K-Pop within its music chart show.

TV Azteca is included in an analysis of K-Pop and Latin America which was compiled by Professor Han Woo Park of YeungNam University. In his study, Professor Han Woo Park considered various factors including YouTube viewers of K-Pop music videos within Latin America, as well as the usage of SNS tools like Twitter by Spanish K-Pop fans.

While Super Junior are not the only K-Pop artists who have incorporated elements of Spanish music into their album, the group is a prime example of the influence of K-Pop upon Latin America.

Super Show 6 will open on September 19, 2014 with dates scheduled for Seoul, Tokyo, and Osaka. It will be interesting to see if the tour will make similar stops as Super Show 5, in Mexico and South America.

Super Junior showed off their special group loyalty with ten years of teamwork.

Super Junior held a press conference to announce their comeback with 7th album <MAMACITA> at Imperial Palace Hotel in Nonhyundong, Seoul on August 28th. They talked about plans regarding album promotions and what they feel about making a comeback. At the press con, a leader of the group Lee Teuk, who has recently discharged from military service, made an appearance along with tens of media press from both South Korea and around the world.

When asked about motivation for the group’s long running success, a leader of the group Lee Teuk answered “Honestly, we’ve had big fights many times before. However, those quarrels accumulated and turned into love and loyalty. We have more time ahead of us than what we’ve already had. Personally, I am looking forward to our future”.

Kang In continued “Some younger artists are surprised by the fact that it has been ten years since we started cohabiting. We intentionally try to live in the same house and eat together. I even returned to our cohabit housing after I left the place”. When the host Jun Hyun Moo asked him “Do you have any plan to wrap up the group housing?” Kang In answered “I don’t have a place to go. I can replay TV and I just like living with SJ members. We split the bill for TV replay.” and evoked laughs.

Lee Teuk said “Until now, we’ve received works done by producers and review those but for this album, we participated in MV making and teaser release. Though countless meetings, we discussed font type, and teaser color for ‘MAMACITA’. Dong Hae composed ‘Couple Ring’ and Eunhyuk and Shin Dong took the lead on making the choreography.”

Super Junior’s 7th album title track ‘MAMACITA’ is an urban new jack swing with an Indian percussion base and a piano line reminding of a DJ remix. The song includes lyrics about asking people to show sympathy on various social issues and griefs. The group will show a comeback stage through KBS 2 <Music Bank> on August 29th and release their album on September 1.

Super Junior not only achieved all-kills on music charts and but also received <Golden Disc> three times in 2009, 2011, and 2013 and swept the end of the year music awards in 2011 and 2012. Fans around the globe are paying attention to Super Junior’s new album and whether they will continue the power of ‘Korean wave’ as K-pop kings.

Super Junior made a special promise to fans.

Super Junior held a press conference to announce their comeback with 7th album <MAMACITA> at Imperial Palace Hotel in Nonhyundong, Seoul on August 28th. They talked about plans regarding album promotions and what they feel about making a comeback. At the press con, a leader of the group Lee Teuk, who has recently discharged from military service, made an appearance along with tens of media press from both South Korea and around the world.

The press con kicked off by showing the new music video for ‘MAMACITA’. It captivated viewers’ ears and eyes by showing ridiculous yet strong performances in western cowboy concepts.

In the music video, Kyuhyun is a gambler who steals treasures with joining hands with villains, Dong Hae is a hunter, Siwon is a sheriff, Eun Hyuk is a bull fighter, Shin Dong is a blacksmith, Hee Chul is a bartender, Lee Teuk is a mean fugitive, and Ryeowook is, as he said ‘not very important in the plot’, barber.

Lee Teuk stated “As the music video combines our performance and acting, many fans were unsure of the exact story line of the video. If we get good scores in music programs and on YouTube, we will reveal a drama version of MV” and shared their plan to pay back the love as an event.

Super Junior’s 7th album title track ‘MAMACITA’ is an urban new jack swing with an Indian percussion base and a piano line reminding of a DJ remix. The song includes lyrics about asking people to show sympathy on various social issues and griefs.

[STAR Q&A] Super Junior Making Comeback After Two Years and Two Months…SJ Shares Album Promotion Plan – From 140828

Super Junior has come back with their 7th full-length album <MAMACITA> after two years and two months of hiatus. The group has been continuing ‘(blank) men’ concept for ten years and now, they’ve really become mannish men with mature charms.

They changed styles in music as well. The title track ‘MAMACITA’ is an urban new jack swing with an Indian percussion base and a piano line. Trendy electronic sounds which were significant to Super Junior known as ‘SJ Funky’ are minimized, and repetitive lyrics and hooks are also cutback. The song can now be enjoyed by fans in their 30s and 40s.

We put down Super Junior’s changes and plans in Q&A.

A. The song <MAMACITA> is the result of your ambitious preparation, what did you focus on?

Lee Teuk: What we agonize the most when preparing a new album is how to show our unrevealed features to the public. So, this time, we focused on not falling into mannerism. It’s been ten years since we made a debut and I thought that maybe we’ve been shutting ourselves off from other people’s opinion. So, we tried our best to embrace others’ opinions this time. Each members participated in the album making based on their experiences.

A. What is the goal of the album promotion?

Lee Teuk: In the past, I thought becoming #1 winner in music shows, or receiving the best artist of the year award were the most important factors. Of course they are important but now I think being with SJ members and working with great people are indeed happiness. I want to have fun and live exciting life which is what I’m aiming for the most.

A. EXO has made a remarkable growth as new artists. Although EXO and Super Junior share the same music label, you must feel intimidated by their rising popularity. 

Lee Teuk: They are not intimidating…It is up to fans whether they stick to us or join other artists’ fandom. I actually feel good about EXO because I was the host of their debut showcase and watched them receiving #1 awards while in the army. I felt proud of them. No one is a lifetime winner or a loser. Competing against each other and taking someone’s spot are not important. What is more important is to promote that South Korea has such talented artists through our music.

Eun Hyuk: If we lose our job or something, then yes EXO can be intimidating, but we have our ways and EXO has theirs. I think it is a win-win situation for both teams.

Kang In: And if someone’s going to take away our spot, it is better to be EXO than other artists.

A. Some of you have completed serving the country, and there are few members who are in their 30s. Is maturity your differentiation from other idols?

Lee Teuk: Yes, we have maturity but I want to say it is composure. I’ve agonized over ‘how to become a grown-up’ and the answer was that I lacked too much to become an adult. I have to build more experiences. I want to try my best in promoting our new album without feeling pressed for time.

A. Any recommendation on the track list of the new album?

Lee Teuk: I personally like the song ‘This is Love’ which is a medium-tempo song with good rhythm. I’ll show it on tv if there is a chance.

Siwon: Is there a reason when you like a song? I even enjoyed demos. I think Kang In liked the song too.

Kang In: I like everything that you like.

A. What do you want to hear from other people about your new album?

Ryeowook: It is the 7th album indeed.

Lee Teuk: Our past hits were hard for a person to sing alone and strong hooks somewhat set up our image. Our new song is a new jack swing with 90s vibe added to the music which many people can sing along.
