Now all the people that were complaining that I was making a big deal about this comeback being a big fucking deal can sit down. SuJu SAID that if this time they don’t do well, it won’t be good for the group.
We literally have to make sure that they win awards, that they top the charts, that they get a fuck ton of views on the MV, and that they get support. We have to vote our asses off, and show them that ELF aren’t going anywhere.
To all you ELF’s that are saying that they’ll be fine, I don’t think you understand that the our boys are fucking scared of failing. Yesung fucking cried because he wants them to do well, wants to be with the members and have it be like the old times where they were on top of the world.
They know a lot of fans have left, they know what happens in the fandom, they aren’t blind or stupid. They have legitimate worries and we need to take this fucking seriously. I won’t see this group fade away because ELF are too lazy to stream, vote and support their supposed UB group that they love so much.
These men have touched my heart and have made me so happy and I’ll be damned if I become the source of their sadness.
Super junior reaction to how they would cheer you up if you were having a bad day.
Leader Teukie would quickly take you into his arms and give you a big hug. Forgetting that he was just back from dance practice and probably drenched in sweat. But you didn’t really care. He would understand what it would feel like to have a bad day, and he always knew that you tried your hardest to cheer him up. Teukie would automatically take you by the hand and lead you to the couch and just cuddle you until your bad mood slips away and all you can do is just enjoy his company.
‘You always know how to cheer me up.’
‘Because you are my everything, Y/N.’
The music junkie that is Kim Heechul would automatically play Cheer up baby, by Twice (Sorry I had to lol) and dance all the moves so you would forget your bad day and just smile and laugh at his goofy action. Once he found you happy again, he would grab you to dance with him before pulling you into his arms and placing a sweet kiss on the top of your head.
‘You just had to play that song, didn’t you?’
‘YAH! It made smile, didn’t it?’
(Zitao you’re always beautiful)
When you walk into the apartment in a bad mood, it would take turtle boy just a few minutes before realizing it. He is slow, forgive him. Yesung would eventually go to the kitchen, brew you an amazing cup of tea before finding you in the bedroom on the bed. He would place the cup on the side table before pulling you in his arms and singing sweetly to you, eventually having you drift to sleep in his warm embrace.
‘Your voice is just so beautiful, Ye.’
‘Not as beautiful as you, my love.’
Manly man Kangin would automatically pick up on your mood and would be by your side right before you even had a chance to take your shoes off. He would lace his fingers with yours and guide you to the couch, placing a blanket over you before disappearing to the kitchen and then arriving with popcorn, a whole lot of junk food and some hot chocolate. Placing it all down, he would make himself comfortable with you and put on a soppy film so you would feel better.
‘I know you like this one, babe.’
‘And I love you, Kangin…’
Jokester Shindong would do everything in his power to make you laugh. Once you crashed on the bed in a big huff, he would figure you needed some cheering up. He would try his best joke material on you that eventually he would run out and you would finally laugh at how bad they were and how sweet he was acting, regardless of the horrific jokes. Realizing you were feeling better, he would kiss your forehead.
‘Where my jokes that bad?’
‘Horrible, but you are simply amazing. Thank you…’
Minnie would just be a big ball of fluff. He would be like Kangin, automatically pick up on your mood. Sungmin would take you to the couch and hold your hands, look into your eyes and tell you to tell him why you were so upset. He would want you to take out all the bad vibes so he could then cuddle you on the couch and constantly remind you how much he loved and cared for you.
‘I am always here for you, Y/N. Remember that, okay?’
Funnily I would think that Eunhyuk would be like Yesung. Clueless at first, but would probably take a longer time to realize you need some cheering up. Arriving home, he would notice you just lying on the bed. He would place a kiss on you forehead, heading to shower before coming back and seeing you in the same position. Noticing the small tears, he would forget about changing fully and would pull you into his bare chest and caress your hair, wiping the tears way and pulling the most monkey face he could muster.
‘Did it work? Did I cheer you up? I know I suck at these things.’
‘You were perfect, Hyuk…thank you.’
(Ignore our Donghae lmao)
Soft hearted Zhoumi would see the sad look on your face, and without mention of a bad day, he would pull you into a hug. Rubbing your back softly as your face is smushed against his chest. You would slowly wrap your arms around him, and automatically feel him pull you closer and whisper soft words into your hair. He would then pull away from you softly, placing a hand on your cheek and caressing it with a gentle look in his eyes.
2005 - Hankyung was only allowed to perform on 2 music show programs.
2006 - Heechul’s accident after attending the funeral of Donghae’s father.
2007 - Car accident involving Jungsoo, Shindong, Hyukjae and Kyuhyun. Kyuhyun was in comatose for four days and needed 4-6 months to recover from it.
2009 - Hankyung filed a lawsuit against SM Entertainment and officially left Super Junior.
2010 - Kangin’s car accident which led him to enter the military service.
2012 - Hyukjae’s scandal with IU.
2014 - Death of Jungsoo’s grandparents and father.
2015 - Kibum offcially left Super Junior.
2017 - Sungmin’s marriage controversy, Kangin’s drunk driving incident and now Siwon’s dog bite case.
From 13 members to 12 to 11 to 7 and now 6. Not even sure if Siwon will still continue to promote after his controversy. Whatever his desicion will be, as a true fan I will support him and the group. I’ve been a fan of this group for almost 9 years and I am sure that I will still be a fan for the years to come. No matter what they say about this group, I will continue to love them and support them. If one member decides to get married I will be happy for him instead of hating his wife. I am not after for any awards I just want them to sing on stage again and perform just like what they are doing for the past 12 years. I am so sorry for being emotional, but I just feel like Super Junior doesn’t deserve any of these. It seems like the media is really having fun of putting them down. Why can’t they just leave them alone and let them be happy?
I am wishing all the best for this group. I will never stop believing to see them perform with 13 members again, also with Henry and Zhoumi.
I love you Super Junior.
Thank you for inspiring me in so many ways.
I will always be here, cheering for you guys.
Hangeng’s Weibo update on 12th year anniversary of debut
Today is the 12th anniversary of my debut.
I’m at the airport waiting for my flight to New Zealand where I filmed the MV for “Say No” for my first solo album. Twelve years coincides with an entire cycle of the zodiac, it’s like a new beginning that fate has planned for.
At the 10th anniversary of my debut I said, “10 years to me has a special meaning, so I want to do something to commemorate it, and let my fans know what I feel deep in my heart. So I wrote "夜伴三庚” (Hangeng’s autobiography).
To my gengfans who debuted three days before I did, I’m very glad and thankful to all of you. "We are still here” is the warmest and most moving phrase I have ever heard. Thank you for saying that to me!
In that past, you were my biggest pillars and support when I was alone in a foreign country. You debuted three days before I did and welcomed every milestone of my life like a member of my family. I will always remember all those moving moments in my heart. In the past twelve years, the support and protection you gave me provided me with the strength to continue forward. My love to you is the same, and has not changed.
In the recent few years, I often see that many of you have started your own families and your lives have become more fulfilling and exciting. After so many memorable years together, like an old friend saying his blessings, I am so happy from the bottom of my heart to see that you are all living a happy and fulfilling life.
Thinking about the past, my willfulness an stubbornness may have brought you pain and disappointment. I suddenly announced that I will no longer release any more albums, I often participate in extreme sports, I joined an F1 racing team, I didn’t film any idol dramas that many of you liked…. It’s not that I did not consider your feeling, but rather, I wanted to share with all of you, the real me. Taking away my role as a celebrity, I hope that you are also a friend in my life, a friend with whom I can talk about the way I live and discuss my life. Of course, I will also try hard to be the image of Hangeng in your hearts, by creating more film and television projects and be more involved behind the scenes. I will also nurture more new faces, and create more opportunities for them.
In these twelve years, other then my gengfans, there are also many people around me who have helped me silently. My family, my staffing team, my friends and everyone in the media and film crews. You all worked harder and are more great, than you all!
Time passes by and the world changes, we are constantly separating and reuniting. Everyone has their own story, we lived it, felt it, shared it. The simplest way to express life may be to commit to your original intentions and be your real self.
I’m thankful to the twelve years that went by. I will treasure the present and look forward to the future. I will you all the best.
I love you all.

(Translator’s notes: For those of you who are not aware, recently Chinese gengfans have been requesting that Hangeng change his current team of staff or hire additional staff to help with his activities.
His current staffing team’s non-actions has caused a lot of damage to his reputation in the past few years, including when he was involved in a false scandal in April of 2016, his staff not only did not come out and set the record straight, but was instead hosting a sleep over party when false accusations where being posted everywhere. His manager’s bad attitude has also resulted in many lost endorsements.
Han Geng currently has five unreleased movies and one unreleased drama all with him as the leading actor, but because of none action, many people had the impression that he had retired from the industry. Gengfans wanted better communication and more professionalism from his staff and has trended more then 10 hashtags on weibo to that effect. He is in part responding to gengfans’ demands in this post. )
Super Junior, one of the biggest and most successful kpop groups to ever emerge. With their global phenomenon hit song: Sorry Sorry released in 2009, indeed Super Junior has earned its name as the “King of the Hallyu Wave.” Super Junior is one of the pioneers of the globalization of kpop. But like any other group, getting there wasn’t easy. Super Junior is an imperfect group. Truth is, no group ever is. Not TVXQ, Bigbang,Highlight/BEAST, EXO, BTS, Wanna One, Girls Generation, 2NE1, Twice. NOT ONE OF THEM IS PERFECT. Thinking otherwise would be subjective in many ways. Super Junior had their issues and scandals, these include the major car accident where several members had their lives hanging by a thread, various cases of Kangin’s behaviour, Kibum’s whereabouts, Hangeng’s departure, the discrimination against Henry and Zhoumi, Sungmin’s boycotting issue, I could sit here all day and talk about what Super Junior has been through. Despite all these, Super Junior may still be imperfect but through these hardships,
SUPER JUNIOR IS A TEAM OF REFINEMENT.
Super Junior has become a refined team as they are today because they had the biggest fanclub in the world, and that was ELF. The EverLastingFriends. Some may seem to call it, Fandom, Fanclub but to ELF, its Family. ELF has been with Super Junior since Day One and together, Super Junior and ELF shared the tears and the laughter. ELF, through Super Junior has seen it all.
The cruelty of the Entertainment Industry and the prejudice of the world.
Some ELFs left but most remained. The question was, why? Friends, ELF stayed because Super Junior was family that was worth the tears and the cries every night before we sleep. ELF is a fucking hell everyone wants to avoid. ELF is an ocean but the sensation is like that of fire and it doesn’t get any better. Every year, they’d leave with very little hair and a wide smile. It’s painful to see them go, to not see them for quite some time.
ELF is a painful place to be. We cried many times, their tears were also ELFs’, their cries would also become ours. The pain of what SUJU and ELF has been through is no joke. Some committed suicide, some cut their wrists. Entering this fandom, I warn you is not all unicorns and rainbows. The rain and winter came upon us everyday but no matter.
No matter how painful it gets, No matter how hard the road will be, THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOME. THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE THE SAPPHIRE OCEAN.
SUPER JUNIOR AND ELF cant be what they are now without the refinement. SUPER JUNIOR AND ELF cant be without the trials.
SUPER JUNIOR AND ELF is an ocean tested by fire. Super Junior and ELF withstood the fire and remain standing. We are an imperfect fandom with an imperfect group but WE ARE REFINED.
Throw bricks and stones, but WE WILL STILL BE THE LAST MAN STANDING.
2017 IS SUPER JUNIOR’S YEAR SO GET THE FUCK OUT OF THE WAY AND GIVE US THE RESPECT WE DESERVE. CAPISCE?
To follow Park Jungsoo, wherever he leads us, to cheer for Kim Heechul at any cost, to respect Hang Geng in his every decision, to sing with Kim Jongwoon, every note and melody, to accept Kim Youngwoon, as well as all his flaws, to appreciate Shin Donghee, regardless of appearances, to adore Lee Sungmin, every side of him, to watch over Lee Hyukjae, as he rocks the stage, to support Choi Siwon in everything he does, to protect Zhou Mi and his beautiful smile, to give strengh to Lee Donghae, when his tears threaten to fall, to take care of Kim Ryeowook, the way he cares for all of us, to believe in Kim Kibum, no matter what, to listen to Cho Kyuhyun, for as long as his voice exists, to stand by Henry Lau, every step of the way. To cover the world with Pearl Sapphire blue,to love SUPER JUNIOR, for as long as my heart allows me to.
I know the anniversary is already over in Korea, but it’s still the 6th where I live, so I want to make another post.
Because the anniversary coincided with the comeback, I just want to dedicate the post to the members who aren’t in the comeback. Not so much Ryeowook and Kyuhyun, but the rest of them.
Han Geng - You will always be a part of us, even if not physically. You have suffered so much and you managed to get past it, to do what was right for YOU and take care of yourself, your mental and physical well being. You have always been strong, and I’m so happy that you’re doing well. I miss you terribly, but at the same time I understand with all my heart why you had to leave, so it makes it slightly easier. Today is your day as well. I know you still think of Super Junior as your family, and they think about you the same, and so do us ELFs. I love you with all my heart.
Kangin - I know you’ve been through a lot. You were wrong, and I’m sure you know that, but I hope you know there are a lot of us who miss you terribly. No one can erase the past, but we can learn from it, and while it’s the second strike already, I feel like there’s still chance for more. Stay safe and healthy, and come back to us with a clear mind (and hopefully no fucking car). I love you <3
Sungmin - You did nothing wrong. NOTHING. Those immature people who argue against you, they have no idea. They do not represent all of us. There are a lot of us who love and support you, and Saeun, and your relationship, with all our hearts. It breaks my heart and angers me that you weren’t able to be a part of this comeback, but I’m going to hope that you will be in the next one. Hopefully by the time you’re back, these dumb “fans” will get over themselves. Hope you’ve had a lovely day; I’m not sure if you’re back from your vacation yet or not, but I hope you’re happy. <3
Kibum - To be fair, after thinking about it for many years, I understand why you felt the need to leave. I was angry for a while, but in the end, you did what you thought was best for you. I have lost touch with what you’re doing since you left, especially since your contract with SM ended, but I hope you’re doing well and that you’re happy. Even if it was for a short time, you’re still a part of this family, and I’m happy for you. I don’t miss you as much as I used to, because I know with all my heart that you would have been unhappy if you stayed. Stay healthy and happy, that’s all I want.
Zhou Mi and Henry - I’m going to put you guys together, since technically it’s not your anniversary (neither it is Kyuhyun’s, but someone people keep forgetting that). You’ve suffered too much for too long. For me, and for a lot of us, you ARE a part of Super Junior, and you ARE a part of this family, and so even though it’s not the day you debuted, I still think that Super Junior’s day is yours, too. There are so many of us who love and support you whole heatedly, who suffer with you, who wish for those idiots who call themselves elfs to realize that you’ve always been a part of the group, and you always will be. Stay strong against these people and only think of the ones who truly support you. I hope that you’ll have more opportunities in the future, both in solo activities and group stuff. I hope Super Junior will have another sub group that will include you two, so we’ll have more content from you. I love you so much, and I can’t wait to see more of you. <3
(btw I didn’t include Siwon bc he’s in the album even if he’s not actively promoting, and tbh I’m still confused why he’s not promoting… I’m not sure if it’s because of the whole Bugsy thing or because of his drama schedule?)
