Cho Kyuhyun’s Music Group

Super Junior (Korean: 슈퍼주니어) is an eleven-member boy group under SM Entertainment and Label SJ. However, due to military services, there are only six active members as of January 2016. Super Junior originally debuted as a twelve-member South Korean boy group with a rotational concept under the name Super Junior 05 in the year 2005. However, a year after their debut, the company decided to abandon the concept by adding a new member- Kyuhyun.

Dropping the “Suffix 05”, in the year 2006, Super Junior became a thirteen-member South Korean boy group. In the year 2009, however, Hangeng filed for contract termination from SM Entertainment due to harsh and disrespectful treatment. And, Kibum went on hiatus for group promotions in order to focus on his acting career.

On December 21, 2010, Hangeng won the lawsuit and officially left SM Entertainment, making Super Junior a twelve-member group. On May 20, 2015, Kibum and Hangeng’s profiles were added to SMTOWN’s official application listed as members of Super Junior; what will happen next is still unknown.

On August 20th, it was announced that Kibum’s exclusive contract with SM Entertainment had come to an end. Therefore, Kibum will officially leave the group as well as the agency! Super Junior’s official fan club, named by leader Leeteuk, is E.L.F (Ever Lasting Friends), and their official color is Sapphire Blue.

In the recent broadcast of Radio Star, Kyuhyun gave a surprising confession after labelmate Dana outed him for missing a week of practice at a musical they both participated in.

The episode aired on May 4th. Dana made a guest appearance along with Lee Seung-chul, labelmate and Super Junior member Kangin, and producer Brave Brothers.

During the show, Dana revealed that she had worked together with Kyuhyun in the musical The Musketeers but commented that the Super Junior member had been missing from practice for approximately a week. She followed with, “I thought he was gone because of an international schedule. But, when he came back, he looked strange. ‘What’s this?’ It turned out Kyuhyun had double eyelid surgery.”

Not denying her comment, Kyuhyun added that the reason he needed the surgery again was due to his first double eyelid disappearing after five years, which he had grown accustomed to.
