All About Super Junior (Profile and Photo Gallery)
Group Name : Super Junior (Korean: 슈퍼주니어) a.k.a SJ or SuJu (슈주).

Total Member : 13 Member
Member of SuJu : Leeteuk (leader), Heechul, Han Geng, Yesung, Kangin, Shindong, Sungmin, Eunhyuk, Donghae, Siwon, Ryeowook, Kim Kibum and Kyuhyun.
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 seven music awards from the M.net Asian Music Awards, eleven from the Golden Disk Awards, and is the second singing group to win Favorite Artist Korea at the 2008 MTV Asia Awards after JTL in 2003.
As a whole, Super Junior has released four studio albums and one physical single, including occasional contributions to drama soundtracks. They are acclaimed for their vocal harmonization and unison as each member contributes a different voice range in their music. Leeteuk, Heechul, Hangeng, Sungmin, Eunhyuk, Donghae, and Ryeowook are all tenors. Yesung, Kangin and Siwon are baritones. Kyuhyun, Shindong and Kibum are basses. Some members are credited for their vocal belting techniques.
Super Junior works closely with Young Jin Yoo, who has produced and arranged most of the group’s promotional singles since debut. Yoo’s also known for creating the renowned SMP style, a genre that includes a balanced infusion of rock, R&B, and rap, with complementing musical elements such as the electric guitar, bass, and other different percussion instruments. Super Junior has prominently used this SMP style in Don’t Don.
Super Junior are known for doing performances that are heavily centered around their choreography, and are acclaimed for their highly synchronized dances. The group’s pre-debut performance was a hip hop dance and they have also joined B-boy battles and performances throughout their career.
Their dance styles are widely termed as street dancing, with a majority of their choreography containing hip hop dance moves such as popping, waving, floating, and liquid dancing. Dances in the form of martial arts are widely used in their dance routines as Han Geng and Sungmin are professionally trained in that area. Shindong was the main choreographer for “U” and for a majority of the group’s other dance sequences. The dance for “Sorry, Sorry” was choreographed by Nick Bass, who has also worked with Justin Timberlake. Eunhyuk choreographed the dance for “Boom Boom” and worked with the other members to create the dance choreography for “Don’t Don” and “Marry U”, both promotional singles for the group’s second album.

Since debut, SM Entertainment has created four subgroups for Super Junior. Every member was put into different subgroups excluding Kibum, due to his busy acting schedule. The intentions of the subgroups were part of SM’s strategy to not limit Super Junior’s activities, and the goal was to show that the group could accommodate different musical genres. However, this strategy was later challenged by critics, as it has influenced an overwhelming amount of music groups to create official and unofficial subgroups alike. SM announced that Super Junior will form more subgroups in the future, and possible focuses of these subgroups include a variety of genres such as rock and hip hop. Previous Super Junior subgroups will also return to the industry along with appearances of new subgroups.

Super Junior-K.R.Y are credited to singing mournful, R&B-style ballads, a style that has proven very popular in recent years although stagnation in the style’s development is causing it to lose its once fresh evocative power.
Super Junior-K.R.Y’s first official performance was on November 5, 2006 on KBS’s Music Bank, performing “The One I Love (한 사람만을). “They have participated in the original soundtrack of the tvN drama Hyena with a total of three tracks, including the main theme. The trio also contributed tracks in two additional original soundtracks, one track in both the soundtracks of Snow Flower and Billy Jean Look at Me. Unlike Super Junior’s other sub-units, Super Junior-K.R.Y has not officially released a single or album, and only participated in collaboration albums and original soundtracks.
Super Junior-Trot (Korean: 슈퍼주니어-트로트), officially known as Super Junior-T (Korean: 슈퍼주니어-티) is the second official sub-unit of Korean boy band Super Junior. They are the first idol group known for capitalizing trot music, the oldest form of Korean pop music.

Super Junior T-Rokuko MV
Super Junior-T’s music style is a distinctive style of trot, an old-fashioned style of Korean pop music. Their revised style of the genre includes modernized K-pop melodies and also fast rap, notably performed by Shindong, Eunhyuk, and sometimes Heechul. Super Junior-T’s goal is to evade the fading genre in Korea’s current music industry and to introduce the young audience to a traditional style of music, hoping to increase awareness of older trot musicians and bring hopeful comebacks of trot to mainstream music. Emergence of Super Junior-T is also due to a strategy that Super Junior has been using, which is to show that they can accommodate many different musical genres
Formed : April 2008
Member : Han Geng, Siwon, Donghae, Ryeowook, and Kyuhyun + Henry Lau and Zhou Mi
Super Junior M – Blue Tomorrow MV
Before the official name of the subgroup was released, they were often referred to as Super Junior China. On April 3, 2008, SM Entertainment released the official name of the subgroup, Super Junior-M, with “M” representing the word “Mandarin,” expressing the subgroup’s ambition to become successful in the Chinese music market not limited to only China. The “M” can also represent a list of other aspects, such as the first letter of their debut album, Me, and also “mi” (Chinese: 迷), which denotes to “charismatic” as well as “fan” in Mandarin, the latter meaning referring to their desire to connect closer with fans.
Super Junior-M’s goal is to bring the Korean pop influence over to the Chinese market, re-representing the hits in Mandarin. Similar to the style of their main group Super Junior, Super Junior-M’s music style falls into the category of mainstream pop, dance, and R&B. Dance pop songs with rock and hip hop influences are easily heard in their music, such as in “Me” and “The Moment”, which contains guitar riffs and heavy bass sounds. Rap is not performed as often like the main group, but these influences can be heard in “The Moment” and also the rap remakes in “Don’t Don” and “A Man In Love”.
