Blast from the Past: Old Super Junior Photos

It’s been a long time since I started being a Kpop fan and since I’ve been an ELF.

Last night as I was cleaning some files, I opened files from 6 years ago that I haven’t seen in ages. It’s some pictures of Super Junior. Some were even before Sorry, Sorry — back when having long hair was popular. I can’t believe how much they have changed!

So I am posting some of them here… so commence PHOTO SPAM!!!

Warning this is an incredibly long post! Sorry 🙂

SPY – Super Junior (MV)

Finally the video for Spy by Super Junior has been released.. I know I posted the live performance before, but like I said I will posting my comment about this entry.

The Video

It’s once again another basic video that SM has been doing a lot of times now! The boys dancing in a room. Except for some parts where there’s a girl doing a sexy wave. It’s not that I am complaining but it’s getting a bit boring.. It’s just the same video concept. Them dancing in a room — they’ve used it over and over again.. the only thing that changes is the dance and the background! I’d love to see them do a video like they did with It’s You and No Other! And come on, there are lots of concepts you can play with with the them of the song.. You know James Bond right.. maybe you could have incorporated that in the concept. There were some hints of 007 concepts but they only used the common ones! They could have made more! Whoever is doing those concepts for the videos should use more of their imagination.. please do better!!!

Anyway, do like their clothes in this video. Apart from all of them looking good in suits, it fits the 007 persona which I assume they are having for this song. The best thing about the video is the dance! I love how simple it is (except the part where Donghae jumps) — but the choreography is quite elaborate, like where they are staying. It made video this video a pleasant experience 🙂

I know some people might bash me.. but it was funny to see Leeteuk’s hair! Hahaha.. it reminds me of 90’s boybands both American/European and Korean. Sorry but he does not look handsome with that hair. I know he makes fun of that kind of hairstyle during broadcasts, but to use it in a video will make someone say: What the heck were they thinking!!

The Song

The song has a lot of elements to it. When it started, it reminds me of a 90s disco song (Venga Boys style anyone?). I thought it would follow that but it changed with a sample of the James Bond theme. And then the verses were sung with an auto-tuned low pitch key. A little confusing! But thank god it’s not as funky as their previous style.. but just a little bit confusing! Do I like it? The sample for the James Bond theme is nice.. the  disco-ish tune was ok.. but the auto-tuning NOOOO!!! Why oh why did they autotune Kyuhyun and Ryeowook — bad idea! They are like the one of the best voices in SJ and you auto-tune them! That’s a crime! What were they thinking! Also, Kangin and Donghae can sin’g.. why did you auto-tune them too! urgh!

I did enjoy this song, but at the moment of writing its a bit confusing for me. But I got you little runaway” is pretty catchy. And for not sounding too much like their old songs, I’d give props to this. But for the moment I could not decide if this is better that Sexy, Free and Single.

Which one do you think is better?

Final Verdict: I still can’t decide if this is better than Sexy, Free and Single but thank god it’s a bit different. Nothing new with the video but loved the dance!

Super Junior’s First Performance of Spy @ Mnet

I haven’t posted anything about Super Junior in a long time.. I haven’t really been updating with them as much as I like.

But last Thursday they performed Spy on Mnet.

Actually the music video has not been released yet as of writing this entry. And my question is why???

I would have wanted to see it first before I see them perform on stage. The teaser has been released but from the looks of it, I think it would be the same concept where it will feature the boys dancing. Honestly, it’s getting a bit boring! I miss music videos with concepts. Why can’t they make one like Boa’s Only One??

Anyway, I do  like this song.. but I will reserve my comments in another post when the music video will come out!

Don’t you just love it when you see more of Siwon during live performances?

Super Junior in SNL Korea 2012.07.14

I am not fluent in Korean but I could understand some of it.. and this was very hilarious!

It’s Super Junior hosting SNL Korea!

I haven’t seen an SNL Korea episode, but we know I’ve seen a lot of the American SNLs (one of my favorite shows!) so I pretty much understand how the show works. Now the boys are hosting the show and doing the skits themselves!

It’s been a long time for them to so shows like this. Actually, I couldn’t recall them doing variety like this. Though the closes may have been those parodies but not to this format. Did they pull it off.. I think so, I enjoyed it, but I couldn’t say it isn’t because I’m a suju fan — so that view might be tilted a bit *wink wink.

What was the best part? The opening! Watch it to know… I had to do a double take.. but not giving any more spoilers!!

Now they have to be on more variety shows! lol

Super Junior at Music Core 2012.07.07

So yesterday, we did not see Super Junior performing on Music Bank because they showed Music Bank live in Hong Kong. That means, the boys are going to have their come back on Music Bank next week.

But today, they did make their comeback on Music Core singing From U (너로부터) and Sexy, Free and Single.

From U

Sexy, Free and Single

I love that they are singing the whole of From U. In the past, they would only sing about less than 2 minutes of the other promotional songs. I think this is their thank you to the ELFs in the world. And we love it! I love them boys!!!

I’m totally loving this album and their comeback. I feel happy when I sing Kangin dancce! Now I want to see more of him on variety shows! I’m also keeping an eye on this comeback as after promotions for this album, Leeteuk will be enlisting. A report said he was worried that his popularity will wane when he enlists. Don’t worry dear leader, ELFs got your back! You will always be popular to us!

When are they going to start appearing on variety shows?? I can’t wait!
