Statement of Super Junior Position


HAPPY 100th DAY, IMMORTALSOUL123!

Yey! I want to celebrate! It’s October 18 now, and after doing some accounting computations, I found out that this blog is already 100 days old! Oh yeah! Continuing, surviving, updating for Super Junior news…

I didn’t care about this before… but because readers are supporting my blog, I want to greet all of you!

THANK YOU!

Honestly, I didn’t know that this blog page will last for 100 days… Because of busy work and all, I thought I’ll stop blogging and left my account for the rest of my life.

Then I realized how important this page to me…

Ah~~ *sobs*

Watch out for more updates and videos!

Super Junior (슈퍼주니어), often referred to as SJ or SuJu (슈주), is a boy band from Seoul, South Korea that was formed under SM Entertainment in 2005. With a total of thirteen members, they are the largest boy band in the world. The members are Leeteuk (the leader), Heechul, Han Geng, Yesung, Kang-in, Shindong, Sungmin, Eunhyuk, Donghae, Siwon, Ryeowook, Kibum, and later, Kyuhyun. The Chinese member, Han Geng, was chosen from three thousand applicants, via auditions held in China by SM Entertainment in 2001.

Super Junior has released and contributed in 19 different kinds of records with varying degrees of success. Over the years, they have been divided into smaller sub groups, simultaneously targeting different music industries and audiences. Largely due to Super Junior’s success as entertainers, other Korean entertainment managements began to train their music groups in other areas of entertainment, such as acting and hosting. In addition to their commercial success, Super Junior has earned four music awards from the M.NET/KM Music Festival, another four from the Golden Disk Awards, and is the second singing group to win Favorite Artist Korea at the MTV Asia Awards after JTL in 2003.

I was very surprised (well, I really knew it…), these boy band is the largest boy band in the world. I hope they are in Guiness Book of World Records, so that they can be more famous in other countries.

Thirteen… The number we all love…

The number thirteen means bad luck for other people, but for us, thirteen is a good number because of Super Junior.

Of course I love Zhoumi and Henry too… Don’t get me wrong 😀

There!

To know them better, watch their videos. I’m sure you will love them more.

COMMENTS:

First, when I was about to read this article, I had thought that this was really an official article from SM, but I guessed wrong.

If I will pick some who will and must remain, I’ll choose ALL of them.

Ok. I know Super Junior is INDEED a large group. That’s why this group is so SPECIAL! That is the very reason why I love them.

I have read your reasons, and seriously, I don’t want to argue about it because it’s your opinion. However, I am not sure if I should not react nor comment on this one.

As I can see, you ONLY saw their APPEARANCES. Though you considered their talents and abilities (in minimal amounts), you still based most of your list from APPEARANCES. Those members who are included are really handsome You really failed to know them better, in my opinion.

And what do the words ATTRACTIVE, HOT and HANDSOME mean to you? These words are REALLY EMPTY, and cannot be used as GOOD DESCRIPTIONS. The people or things that are BEAUTIFUL to you MAY NOT be BEAUTIFUL to others.

Can I ask you (I’ll be grateful to know your answer), what was your basis to tell your readers that other Super Junior members should not be included on YOUR list? You didn’t even have your arguments supported by any facts. In fact, you just supported each statement by citing the TV SHOWS they were in to and how did they ACT and REACT in those SHOWS and PERFORMANCES. They were LIVE and ON-CAM, weren’t they? Of course they would ACT like what was on the script. Tip: You can compare them to other groups if you want to. That’s a good argument.

Is it all about who are attractive? Does it really matter in number?
Well, in some point, they really matter. But don’t forget that all people have unique TALENTS and ABILITIES that make them more unique.

I am a fan, I admit. But even if I’m not, I will still open my mind and let them explain their side first.

Notes:
•Watch some of their SHOWS if you know that those will help you decide who will remain and who will not.
•Kyuhyun is more of a good singer than a good dancer. Yes, he can dance, but singing is his expertise.
•Shindong – He is chubby, but that did not hinder him to be loved by people. He is good in dancing. Watch: DANCE BATTLE.
•Sungmin – One tip – watch: PROTECTIVE SUNGMIN. Not attractive and cute? OCO.Why do mothers love him if he cannot attract them?
•Ryeowook – He is not tall, but who cares? He is good in singing (though I did not like his voice at first). Watch: STILL WITH YOU – RYEOWOOK and EXPLORATION OF THE HUMAN BODY.
•Heechul – Ugly? Na-ah~ He is talented, especially in acting. Singing and dancing were not his expertise, but I believe that he can do it. He never failed to make his audience laugh anywhere, anytime, whatever reasons there were. He is the type of person who doesn’t give up easily. He is a strong-willed person; he is ready to stand up again despite of criticisms. Watch: HEECHUL – CHUTCHA ROCK VERSION.
•Yesung – A forgettable member? Who can forget Yesung’s performances? Japanese fans love him. Watch: YESUNG SINGING POLARIS.
• Kibum – Although I hate him for not being a part of any 3jib activities (except for the party, LOL), I still want to recognize him as a part of Super Junior. He is a great dancer and rapper, and actor too! Watch: XMAN – KIM KIBUM DANCE.
• Leeteuk – A great leader who takes care of his dongsaengs. His Rokkugo-SJT days? Awesome. His radio shows and tv guestings? Not boring as we think. He’s attractive; his hair looks good on him. Watch: STAR KING LEETEUK CUTS.
• For the members you had chosen – Agrees. JUST ADD THE SEVEN MEMBERS AND I’LL TOTALLY AGREE.
• I can’t change your opinion about them. But try to be open-minded.
• Lastly, AVOID FALLACIES. THEY ARE IRRITATING.

  1. “…I hope they are in Guiness Book of World Records, so that they can be more famous in other countries.”

    Now that you mentioned i, why aren’t they in the Guiness Book of Records??? They are the LARGEST BOYBAND in the world with thousands/millions of fans (E.L.F) worldwide.

  2. Heechul is good at dancing. but he wasnt able to expose it to the people bcuz of the accident thingy. I watched love letter where heechul is there, he danced with killer and amazing moves with Bada.

    • He is really good. There are only times when he was not that good. I appreciate his effort and his perseverance to dance despite of what happened to him, don’t worry.. 😀
      I love Heechul too…

  3. Heechul – ugly?

    ouch.. that hurts.. hehe…
    i agree with you though…
    there were really times that heechul oppa
    can be ugly.. specially when the time when his hair was red.. his eyes could even look big… and he looks ugly with it.. hehe..
    but, that was just before… he’s cute and handsome nowadays.. and he’s also pretty.. one of the reasons why i love him the most.. ^^,

    but anyway, maybe he doesn’t possess a voice like our K.R.Y have… but when he’s singing a rock song!?!… he totally ROCKS!!!!

    well, that’s just for me..

    suju fighting!!!!!^^,

    • No, I don’t think he’s ugly… I really think that he is handsome… That’s why I was into him before… 😀
      That was just my comment from a post. I really love his dancing… and singing voice in Chobyeol. 😀

    • I am just asking the people who thinks Heechul is ugly. And I was proving that he is not… ahaha…
      sorry for making you misunderstood 😀

  4. Suju will only be Suju when all of them are there together. It’s their performance that mademe a fan of theirs in the first place.
    SuJu Fighting~~!!!

  5. lol… as an E.L.F, i will support suju forever… LOVXXX DONGHAE, HANKYUNG, SUNGMIN, YESUNG, SHINDONG, RYEOWOOK, EUNHYUK, KIBUM, HEECHUL, LEETUEK, KYUHYUN, KANGIN, SIWON..^^

  6. Okay, this what I think about Donghae, since I haven’t see anyone mention it (doesn’t mean that I only like him among others. I like SuJu, that’s all). I fell for him at the third or fourth sight. And that was because he really appreciate togetherness (I don’t care if it’s not even a word). He loves to be close to members and consider and care and need and enjoy them as family. You can easily recognize that character by watching carefully on his gestures and way of speaking. He likes to be surrounded by people and at the same time sharing his care. On top of all, he’s not ashame of it.

    After knowing SuJu for a while, I realized that to love them is worthed. Chronologically, their appearance attracted me, then their moves, then their hard works, then their personality. But the two last reasons take biggest place in my heart. Thanks to them, my life doesn’t feel that hard anymore, since I see for real those who work very very hard to achieve their dreams.

    Nice blog!
    cheers.

  7. i’m an ELF & i support all kinda suju web sites hope u continue good workin’ fighting gooooooooo SUPER JUNIOR
