SUPER JUNIOR RELEASED REPACKAGED ALBUM TODAY
Korean idol group Super Junior will be releasing a repackaged album next week which contains four new tracks including the follow-up single “No Other,” according to their agency SM Entertainment on Tuesday.
SM announced in a press release that the digital sound source for “No Other” will be released on Friday through various music sites including Bugs, Cyworld, Dosirak and Melon with the album due out in stores three days later.
“Other,” a pop dance number, was produced by New York-based musicians Reefa, C-2 and Ryan Jhun who have worked notable hip-hop artists including Fabolous, Ludacris and The Game.
The repackaged version of the group’s latest album “BONAMANA” will contain a total of four songs including “Other” and a remix version of the track “Shake It Up” which was included in the original record.
Super Junior — composed of members Leeteuk, Heechul, Han Geng, Yesung, Kang-in, Shindong, Sungmin, Eunhyuk, Donghae, Siwon, Ryeowook, Kibum and Kyuhyun — debuted in December 2005 with their first studio album titled “SuperJunior05 (TWINS)”.
They became a K-pop phenomenon across Asia, thanks to the success of their subsequent albums “Don’t Don” (2007) and “Sorry, Sorry” (2009), and held two sold-out concert tours in 2008 and 2009 titled “The 1st Asia Tour – Super Show” and “Super Show 2”.
The boys have been promoting the recent hit single “BONAMANA” as a ten-man band with three of its members — Kang-in, Kibum and Hangeng — taking a break from group activities, each for different reasons.
Hangeng is currently involved in a legal battle with SM, Kibum is focusing on his acting career and Kang-in will be going to the Korean military early next month to fulfill his mandatory two-year military service.
The group has been enjoying a successful comeback with “BONAMANA,” which took the No.1 title on KBS music show “Music Bank” for three consecutive weeks and won the triple crown award on SBS’ “Inkigayo.”
Super Junior are scheduled to appear on a special episode of “Music Bank” on June 25, giving their final performance of “BONAMANA.”
Friday’s episode will feature performances by numerous Korean artists to celebrate K-pop music that were popular during the the first half of the year.
