Throwback to 1992 when En Vogue released their album “Funky Divas.” The albums’ first two tracks “My Lovin (You’re Never Gonna Get It) and "Giving Him Something He Can Feel” both made top ten pop and peaked at No. 1 on the R&B charts.

Super Junior Achievements, Record, Awards etc. (could also be named Suju appreciation Spam)
I know many Elfs are upset and robbed by SM and Mama and GDA truthfully I still feel a bit of bitterness but I decided to make this to Show that no matter what happens Super Junior have achieved so much and contributed so much to the genre kpop. hopefully this makes you feel a bit better or at least smile a bit. Also hope this shows those who keep discrediting Suju for losing 3 measly awards at Mama and getting snubbed at the GDA for being to good or those people I have seen saying Super Junior are washed up and old. Remember I might have missed some things here and there and made a few mistakes I did the best i could to include as much info as I could find. Super Junior have so many achievements it’s hard to keep up.

Beagle apparently means Extremely Loud, goofy, can’t sit still for 5 seconds
you know the thing super junior does where they act like 5 year olds that is them being beagle idols.
So we have reached the end if you have made it this far congrats and I hope you liked this and it made you feel a bit better if you felt a bit upset or sad or angry or anything else over Sm being little shits as well as mama and gda. At the end this means nothing because they got kicked out for being to good. Let’s just focus on the hollywood awards the seoul music awards and just showing suju we still care for them let’s give them awards more meaningful. As far as I heard people were saying apparently chinese elfs were working on a GDA trophy again. so you go c-elfs
At the end of the day remember Sm needs Super Junior, Super Junior don’t need SM. Super Junior helped make SM what it is today. One day hopefully they realize how much they needed super junior in the end. also apparently after all this shit SM pulled on SUJU stocks dropped which fills me with some sort of satisfaction to be honest.
As Donghae said in Superman
“If they ask us who we are, we show them our results”
anyway it is cold and raining and 2 in the morning so i am going to go listen to superman 100 times while i drift of to sleep slowly. hope you enjoyed. <3
why do people think bts is losing their “bts-ness” because this album sounds different? even if you prefer their older sound and this album isn’t your favorite, it’s still bts, and it feels like bts. why? because they explore new genres all the time. they explore new sounds. they experiment and aren’t afraid to branch out of their comfort zone. not to mention the lyrics themselves are very bts. just because it’s a different vibe and not your favorite doesn’t mean they’re losing their “bts-ness” whatever that means
