On Monday (13/6/2022) at midnight KST, Soompi reported that the legendary boy group Super Junior announced their plans for a comeback with the release of their 11th studio album titled “The Road: Keep on Going.”
Super Junior’s last group comeback was in February, when they released their special single album “The Road: Winter for Spring.”
Super Junior also known as SuJu, is a South Korean boy group formed by Lee Soo-man, the founder of SM Entertainment in 2005. They are also dubbed by the media as “Kings of the Hallyu Wave” because of their prominent contribution in the K-pop industry.
Super Junior currently consists of 10 members, namely leader Leeteuk, Heechul, Yesung, Shindong, Sungmin, Eunhyuk, Donghae, Siwon, Ryeowook, and Kyuhyun.
Super Junior began to gain international acclaim after releasing their best-selling single “Sorry Sorry” in 2009. Over the years, they have been divided into smaller groups. The members of Super Junior have also individually branched out into hosting and also acting in Korean drama series. Their success and popularity as versatile artists have led other Korean entertainment managements to also start training their bands in other aspects of the entertainment industry besides singing and dancing.
Super Junior is the best-selling K-pop artist for the fourth year in a row. The group has won thirteen music awards from the Mnet Asian Music Awards, nineteen from the Golden Disc Awards, and is the second singing group to win Favorite Artist Korea at the 2008 MTV Asia Awards after jtL in 2003.
In 2012, they were nominated for “Best Asian Act” at the MTV Europe Music Awards. They won the “Best International Artist” award and in 2015, they won the “Best Fandom” award at the Teen Choice Awards.
In March 2020, Super Junior broke their own record by topping the Taiwan KKBOX Album Chart for 122 consecutive weeks with their 8th album, “Play.” Their fandom name is ELF, which stands for “Ever Lasting Friends.”
