10 Things We Love About Super Junior

One of the biggest K-Pop boy bands on earth (trust us, there’s a lot), Super Junior, recently celebrated their 7th Anniversary. And this is a big deal because? Well, let’s just say that the general life span of K-Pop groups is not very long. But then again, Super Junior is anything but ordinary. So with that in mind, we’ve decided to list out the top things we love about Super Junior.

If you combine the members of Super Junior and its sub-group, there are enough men to form a football team, including reserves. One might find the amount a little staggering for a boy band but we think the more the merrier!

One listen to ‘Sorry, Sorry’, ‘ Bonamana’ or ‘Mr. Simple’ and you’re hooked, for life. Even the slightly less dance tracks like ‘No Other’ will have you singing along to every word, even if you’re not that fluent in Korean language.

If you’ve seen their music videos or performances and haven’t secretly tried to copy their dance moves, you’re probably lying. Having said that, we applaud these men for making complicated choreography and dance formations look so fuss-free.

Some K-Pop bands prefer to maintain a ‘cool’ and ‘serious’ appearance, but Super Junior is not like most groups. We love that they have no qualms in wearing dresses, competing in silly games that are televised and playing pranks on each other to make their fans and audiences laugh.

They may have loads of fun as a band but they are also there for each other when the going gets rough. Just by looking at how cool, calm and collected they are, it’s hard to imagine that they’ve had to endure Donghae’s father’s death, three car accidents, which resulted in Kyuhyun and Heechul being severely injured, non-stop scandals and a past member’s battle with the company, together.

Siwon’s love for skinship with his band mates has been witnessed by many. Donghae and Eunhyuk are so close and often seen hugging and kissing each other, fans wonder about their relationship. Heechul and former Han Geng’s bond is so tight, they still talk about each other till today.   

Sometimes we wonder how much time some of the members spend at the gym. We’re not complaining at all. In fact, we would like to thank them for their abs-olute dedication in keeping fit and sharing images like the above with all of us. Your efforts are much appreciated.

We love that each members bring something different to the table. We just can’t get enough of Heechul’s confidence - he’s so self-assured, he’ll make you believe he is the most handsome guy on earth, even if he’s not - Sungmin’s ability to be effortlessly cute, Eunhyuk’s surprising big appetite, Yesung’s weirdness, Leeteuk’s obsession with cameras, Shindong’s quirky ways and more. We could go on all day!

Super Junior fans call themselves E.L.F, which stands for ‘ever lasting friends’. Considering the fact that the band has lasted this long, the fans truly live up to their name!

Boy, aren’t we all glad they love social network just as much as we do. It makes it so much easier for fans to keep track on what they are doing and where they are at. Siwon is obsessed with LINE and Donghae tweets religiously. Now if only we can get them all to join Instagram...
