So, the moment I have been waiting almost all summer for has finally come. SUPER JUNIOR COMEBACK!
Me, as well as most of the asian population, has waited a year and a half for this moment. When I saw the released teasers, and listened to every track on the album, I was more than impressed.
I was expecting what I traditionally expect from Super Junior, beautiful faces, endless charm (KYUHYUN!) but with music that was mediocre, but bearable because it was from THEM. But, this time, I am genuinely enjoying these tracks.
Not to mention all the amounts of Kyuhyun I am soaking up from these songs. He is my bias, and I do believe these comebacks would not mean close to as much if he wasn’t in so much of them. (Is it just me or does he seem to be getting more parts and a greater emphasis?) Well, he is perfect, so why not?
So I was screaming like a crazy fangirl when the album was released. I thought I was going to explode from excitement, and I felt like one of those Beatles fangirls from the ’60s. You’d think I was meeting Suju for god sakes, I was that crazy.
Right now I am MAD for the track ‘Feels Good’, it my new favorite song, and I can’t seem to stop listening. However, the album in general is REALLY amazing me. The Super Junior babyness seems to be fading, and there is this new maturity they have, which was also present in their Bonamana comeback. I loved Bonamana, I did, and I loved ‘Sorry Sorry’ and ‘It’s You’ as much as every crazy fangirl, but I just feel this album is especially great. Maybe it’s because I’ve been waiting so long, or maybe it really is above and beyond! Who knows.
And, another thing. Please, someone tell me, why Hangeng, Kangin and Kibum are ALWAYS gone, yet still counted as the original 13? I was somewhat suprised to see 10 in this comeback (particularly Heechul, who is usually off in his own world) but feel like the whole concept of “Super Junior, largest group, 13 members” has become distorted. They are betraying that emphasis with every video.
OH WELL! Super Junior could probably commit a crime and I’d still think they were awesome. I don’t care what anyone says, they ARE K-pop, and k-pop would not be anything without THEM.
Here’s to you, Kyuhyun, Dongahae, Eunyeuk, Leeteuk, Shindong, Siwon, Sungmin, Ryeowook, Heechul, Yesung, Hangeng, Kangin, and Kibum! KEEP IT UP! I’ll be an old wrinkled woman who still cherishes the greatness of your many singles and comebacks and rocks out to ‘Sorry Sorry’ in many years from now.
Annyeoung! ^_^ (I’ll certainly be back with more Suju updates when the music videos are released! >_<
