One special, Chinese face

In this massive group however, one face stands out and is particularly striking. He is the Chinese member Hankyung (or Hangeng) that was picked via the H.O.T auditions in China during the 2001 edition. He is tall and handsome, and has vast talent in dancing.

Because of his appearance, Super Junior was destined to shine in the Chinese market.

From their first single, Super Junior’s road of fame has been relatively smooth. All of their lead singles from every one of their three albums have been chart-toppers, and they also have had two concert tours around Asia, causing a frenzy everywhere they toured. The members also have had good results in both hosting and acting as well.

June 2009, Super Junior appeared as guests for the Golden Melody Awards in Taiwan, and they were ironically more popular than most of the other guests there. Their fans had been mobbing them ever since their touchdown in Taiwan, and they would not cease until SuJu’s departure.

Their popularity even led to the organizing unit specially planning a small copycat version of Super Junior, for more news coverage.

Super Junior-M: the China-focused Korean boyband

Because of Hankyung, more Chinese people now know about and like Super Junior. So at this point of time, S.M made an analytical business decision, and a risky one too: they created a sub-unit within Super Junior, just for the Chinese market.

With Hankyung as its leader, more Chinese members were added in and this is how the mesmerizing SJ-M has come to be.

The group with three Chinese members

The M in SJ-M stands for “Mandarin”, and it also represents that SJ-M will be focusing on the Chinese market as their main stage. Its members comprises of Hankyung, the leader and also the one with the highest popularity in China, Donghae, Siwon, Ryeowook, Kyuhyun, four members from the original unit, two Chinese members were also added: Henry and Zhoumi.

Together they form the seven member SJ-M, and the presence of three Chinese members brings a stronger sense of familiarity for Chinese fans. They are the first boyband to have both Korean and Chinese members, and they are also the first group to train under a Korean entertainment company and enter the Chinese market with the intention of working hard to achieve their goal of being top stars there.

Chinese versions help to close the gap

The truth remains that despite the hallyu wave in China, there is not a shortage of boybands and pretty boys there, all with the ability to sing and dance well. However, SJ-M’s appearance still managed to wow the audience there.

SJ-M’s debut album’s lead single, , was the Chinese remake of the original Korean version that Super Junior had sung, and most of the Asian audience were already familiar with this song. It was rearranged by famed Korean composer Yoo Youngjin to include a New Jazz swing beat, and is more emotional than the original version.

The single that shared the same name with the album, , was a light rock dance song that featured an acoustic guitar together with their sweet vocals, bringing a sense of happiness to all that listened to it.

The cute was written by Zhoumi, who also rewrote the Chinese lyrics for , and , showcasing his lyrical ability.

In order to pull the gap between them and their fans even closer, this Korean-Chinese group even did a cover of the classic Chinese ballad, .
