Super Junior, Zhoumi solo and
Hello everyone, sorry for the hiatus! Exams were awful! There’s lots of Super Junior news today!
Super Junior now has 3 videos out this year! Mamacita came out in the end of august and it was quite a different song than the usual Super Junior pop song, it had saxophones and an R&B feel, and it’s an American Western style video so there’s cowboys! Then the video for “This is Love” came out about a week ago. And “Evanesce” came out about 5 days ago. The music videos seem to relate to one another in some way story-wise. “This is love” has a bouncy, pop but also ballad-esque feel. They’re singing about a girl, obviously, that they love and Kangin leaves at the end of the video kind of oddly. Then “Evanesce” is a similar video to “This is love” but it seems much more sad, like an unrequited love story. In fact at the end, Kangin leaves with tears in his eyes. The two songs connect to one-another for sure. They’re on the new album “Mamacita” (7th Super Junior album). Super Junior hasn’t done much as one group in so long so this makes me happy, though I miss Shindong. It’s going to be forever until Super Junior is one group with all the members again with the required military service in South Korea for males (That’s why Shindong doesn’t have any singing parts on “This is love” or “Evanesce”). Super Junior is doing great as a group again. Hopefully we can get them nominated for the MAMA awards (Mnet Asian Music Awards) this year. Since 2ne1 declined and all, and I doubt Big bang will have new music in time…. ANYWAY I’M GETTING OFF TOPIC! Super Junior fighting!
So Sm released a “who’s next” teaser online and it was just the view of someone’s head, a male. It was hard to guess who, so thank goodness they told us shortly after. I thought it’d be Kyuhyun since he gets so many solos now in the new Super Junior stuff, since he’s a great vocalist and all! But… the solo artist is actually Zhoumi of Super Junior M! I’m really excited he got a solo because he’s only a sub-unit member of Super Junior so he doesn’t get much spotlight. He and Henry got the most hate since they were ad-ons to Super Junior (that’s why they’re only in Super Junior M), they came after the group was formed as 13 members and the “only 13” campaign happened. But after Han Geng left and Kibum took a “hiatus” to pursue acting (he’s still contracted as a Super Junior member but he doesn’t perform with them or even address them in the media now a days) people finally backed off. Now that Henry has had two solo opportunities, Zhoumi deserves a turn (Not that I hate mochi oppa, he’s my bias)! SM released a highlight medley titled “Rewind” with some attractive shots of Zhoumi. I’m also glad he’s singing in Korean so he can be more K-pop relevant. I always hated that the Chinese sub groups aren’t really integrated into the K-pop market (Ie: Super Junior M, Exo M). His album comes out tomorrow on Halloween! Zhoumi fighting!
And speaking of chinese K-pop idols… Former Exo member Kris (Wu Yifan) is releasing a new solo song on his birthday (November 6th)! Maybe the rumors of him finding an agency (Yuenha) weren’t so far fetched? There was a recent article saying he was having trouble finding anew agency since he left SM… But this definitely proves it wrong! He’s also going to be performing it live on that day too! Kris fighting!
Thanks for reading!
And remember, no hickies!
