Donghae: Happy 9th birthday to ELF^^ Because I like writing letter so I tried writing a letter to everyone ^^ Please take good care of me in the future too !! Don’t fall sick , eat well and laugh a lot ^^ I love you.
Translation of Donghae’s letter:
Sincerely, congratulations to ELF for their 9th birthday! It has already been 9 years since we walked together and time has flown by.
A lot of things has happened right? Laughing together, crying together, relying and comforting each other during hard times, To SJ, ELF is an existence that we absolutely cannot be without. When we first met, it was nice, I was thankful when we got closer, because we loved, we were given happy times and when I turn back and look at it now, there are so many memories so it made me not want to part with you guys ^_^
It’ll be great if we can love like there is no tomorrow.
It’ll be great if we can remain next to each other while filling up parts of each other that is lacking ^_^
I love you^_^
Donghae again: Ur my hero ELF !:) i’ll be standing right next to you :)) always….^^

i am having no feels for the new sj song and feel like im losing my love for them even tho they provided me with so much hope and meaning during a shitty period of my life. pls help me remind myself why i love them.
i’ll tell you why I love them:
They don’t give up on their dreams. For the past 10 years, SJ have been doing nothing but their best. So many years of hardships, sweat and tears. They got a lot of hate since their debut, and until this day, they still do. How can a band of so many members stay standing up and so strong when all they heard was hate and criticism? Not every band can reach 10 years if they weren’t so strong. They thought of giving up so many times, but here they are celebrating their 10th anniversary.
Great Sunbaes. Whenever rookies are asked who are the sunbaes that took care of them the most, they would answer with Super Junior. Taking care of rookies and giving them advices because they’re the most ones that know that being an idol isn’t all fun and games, but full of hardships, especially the first few years. Unlike other bands that are stuck-up now because of fame, they give time to rookies to take care of them. Most of the rookies also look up to them.
Remember when SJ won on Music Bank for MAMACITA? Usually when a band wins, they’re the only ones that stay on stage for the encore (and any other band in the same company). BUT. Super Junior kept everyone else on stage and held their hands, formed a circle and started celebrating with the other bands.
Super Junior is ONE. SJ have a lot of subunits and solo artists, but they consider a subunit as ‘Super Junior’. They involve the other members in their own activities, like these moments are their moment to SHINE, yet they still involve the other members.
D&E performing with Henry in 143 on Inkigayo
Oppa, Oppa performance ended with all of the members on MuBank christmas special
Siwon feat. in Motorcycle MV
ShinMin feat. in Oppa, Oppa Jap. MV
KRY going on stage with D&E in their concert
SiHyuk going on stage to celebrate Yesung’s birthday during KRY concert, and much much more.
Singing Can You Feel It? in SS6 like it’s a Super Junior song, not only D&E’s.
and much much more…
ELF. “ELF this, ELF that” “Kids, what are you doing?” “ELF, don’t forget to eat your meals today!” - Super Junior.
They treasure us so much. It’s unbelievable how much they adore ELF. Like how adorable is that? They feel so apologetic towards us for doing so much for them, when ELF do everything for them as a gratitude. It’s a relationship where both parties are always thanking each other. <3
They never forget to thank us ELF, they wrote many songs that are dedicated to us, example From U, and have always got our back. They’re constantly thanking us for everything and yet they still think that’s not enough.
They congratulate us on our anniversary just like how we do in theirs. They got so happy when we got an award also in Teen Choice Awards! We’re a family ;_;
Relationship. Super Junior’s relationship.. no words can describe it. They would protect their brotherhood no matter what. Because they went through these hard years together, they understand each other so much. Tears, sweat, and countless fist fights led to this strong bond. They even vowed that a girl will never come between them. You can see in their eyes how much they mean to each other, and are always ending their ‘thank you’s in the albums thanking the members.
They go visit the each other when they’re working hard filming an MV, watching each other’s musicals, going to their filming set to give some support. Promoting a member’s new album or even drama.
They built up so many memories together that it’s saddening for them to leave the dorm on by one. Just few weeks ago, Ryeowook started crying on Sukira.
Hangeng left years ago, but he hasn’t forgotten his bond with sj at all. In 2012, he had both versions of Sexy, Free & Single in his dumpling restaurant <3
They still consider Hangeng and Kibum as part of SJ even though they both chose their own path, and what’s more important, they do consider Zhou Mi and Henry as Super Junior.
The love and support between the members makes me respect them so much. they’re always supporting each other and got each other’s back no matter what.
Family. Since they have such a good brotherhood, they consider themselves family. For heaven’s sake, Donghae has Eunhyuk’s mother’s picture in his wallet, because all mums are their mothers! <3 They even perform in the members’ sibling’s weddings, like in Heejin’s and Ahra unnies weddings!
Being an idol and in a band is considered as a career, but what about vacation? They travel together. They’re not fellow members, they’re brothers.
They’re parents, especially the mothers, are all good friends, they even traveled to China together few years ago.
In Leeteuk’s father and grandparents’ funeral, who carried the coffin? His brothers did..
They love being around each other so much, that Ryeowook loves filming a 3 day MV, even though it’s tiring, but because they’re together fooling around.
Super Junior as people. I’m not their fan for their looks, success, awards or whatever. I’m their fan because i love them for who they are. Super Junior never fail to apologize sincerely for their mistakes. They donate so much to charity, and there’s a post already about it. And, they usually keep their charity private. They’re the most likable band in the media because of their lively personality. They never fail to act respectful toward their sunbaes, and of course, they’re the nicest and most loved sunbaes to their dongsaengs.
My happiness. They’re the only band that can make me laugh so hard till I’m out of breath. & laughing till my stomach hurts is the best medicine for me. They can make me smile on my worst days, no joke. I’m seriously not exaggerating. I smile like an idiot when I see them, a part of me… how can i say this, feels assured when I see them? I just do. They’re my energy boost.
They make me so happy.
Their happiness is mine, their tears are mine.
I really believe this can’t be expressed in words, and I’m sure every ELF knows what I mean, because the feelings that i have towards them is indescribable.
I became an ELF during August 2011, and believe me not even once i regretted being their fan. Ever since i became an ELF, i became a happier than i was. I’m having a tough time in uni, but i smile whenever i open my phone seeing their picture as my wallpaper.
They made me so happy the passed years, and staying an ELF and supporting them is my way of thanking them.
I’m just a fan, fangirling in front of her laptop… not really, I’m an ELF. And I love Super Junior and i know that they love me as well because for Super Junior, ELF mean the world.. and for ELF, Super Junior mean the world too… and much more..
Why I mentioned all of this is to show you why you loved Super Junior. You said it yourself, that they helped you in a tough period in your life. They all did.
I think this post in not enough to describe Super Junior. There’s a lot more to say, but most things can’t be explained in words.
I would love it if ELF add more things to this post, because what i wrote isn’t even enough to explain how admirable about Super Junior is.
