K-pop Artist of the Week: Super Junior

Meet Super Junior. Why yes, there are 10 of them. The more the merrier, right?

Group Name: Super Junior (슈퍼주니어)

Members: Leeteuk, Heechul, Kangin, Shindong, Sungmin, Eunhyuk, Donghae, Siwon, Ryeowook, Kyuhyun

Company: SM Entertainment

Profile: Super Junior have been around since 2005, which is a pretty crazy amount of time for a group to stay together. They were one of the most popular groups a few years ago, although they’ve faded a little now. At one point in time they actually had 13 members. Their music videos tend to include schnazzy dance moves. Their songs tend to include awesome Engrish.

Music Videos

“Mr. Simple” (2011). Love this. A K-pop classic. (The actual song starts at 0:36.) “Because I naughty, naughty.”

“Bonamana” (2010). I enjoy the dramatic swinging light, the hipster sepia coloring, and the dance moves (some of them evidently inspired by speed skating). Song starts at 0:21.

“Mamacita” (2014). This is a fun one. Please note the awesome English lyric at 2:45 – “Just close your lips, shut your tongue.” Hahaha. How exactly does one shut one’s tongue?
