On November 6th, SUPER JUNIOR returned with a pre-release digital single titled “The Melody”. November 6th also marked the group’s 15th-anniversary, and their 10th album, The Renaissance, drops in December.
I honestly don’t think this group requires an introduction, but since this is my first time making a post just for them, here’s a brief one – SUPER JUNIOR (SuJu) is a South Korean boy group formed by Lee Soo-Man of SM Entertainment. They officially debuted on November 6th, 2005, with twelve members – Leeteuk, Heechul, Han Geng, Yesung, Kangin, Shindong, Sungmin, Eunhyuk, Siwon, Donghae, Ryewook and Kibum. The thirteenth member Kyuhyun joined in 2006. The group currently has nine active members since Hang Geng, Kibum and Kangin left over the years. Also, Sungmin is presently not taking part in group activities.
(Please note – this is a real-time review, meaning I am typing down my exact thoughts while listening to this song.)
