The career journey of Super Junior M, which always seems to be proud and often gets awards, does not mean that it is always smooth and easy for members to have a career in the entertainment industry. As previously known, Super Junior M has 2 additional members from China, which are Henry Lau and Zhou Mi.

It all started when SM Entertainment released an official statement in October 2007 that a sub-unit of Super Junior would debut in China in 2008. This caused mixed responses from ELF, Super Junior’s official fandom in South Korea, and they decided to sign the petition online and hold protests and rejections against members who will later join, It’s all because fans are afraid that one day there will be original members who will be released.

However, this was finally resolved because Super Junior’s leader, Leeteuk, tried to discuss with fans at a fan meeting held on July 27, 2008, and calmed fans to accept new members and promised that no members would be added or replaced in the future.
