[News] Interview with SJ-M: New members making the group more perfect, Jay Chou’s song is hard to sing

5 Mar

On the 3rd of March, idol group Super Junior-M (SJM) went to Shanghai with a new concept, to kick start promotional activities for their new 2nd mini album, Too Perfect. During this special interview, member Kyuhyun introduced the two new members, Eunhyuk and Sungmin, “They joining our group have made this sub-group more perfect, just like our new album title, Too Perfect.” The album also include a song produced by Jay Chou and Fang Wen Shan, which SJM members added that it was an exceptionally difficult song to sing.

Avoid talking about Hangeng, additional members makes SJ-M more perfect

After undergoing changes, SJ-M is back in the Chinese music industry, with new members like Super Junior’s Eunhyuk and Sungmin. Kyuhyun expressed his thoughts about the additional 2 members, “They joining the group have made this sub-unit more perfect, just like out new album name, Too Perfect. Eunhyuk, who is part of the dance and Sungmin, who is part of the singing, have helped us a lot. Member Zhou Mi also added, “I hope is a new start for Super Junior-M.” indicating that the members are going to move on, and questions regarding Hangeng were already filtered through by staff members before the conference.

The album also includes works from Henry and Zhou Mi. According to Henry, the song was done together with his friend at his university in America, and not only did he composed the song, but wrote the lyrics as well. “Even though my standard of mandarin isn’t very good, but I tried my best to write this song.” Since the debut of SJ-M, Zhou Mi has participated in writing lyrics for every song in all their albums. He said, “I always had a dream, that for every Super Junior-M album, I would have a chance to participate in the producing stage. But now, not only do I write the lyrics, I have also tried composing. I hope I can make better music for everyone to listen.”

Mad practice of mandarin, confesses that Jay Chou’s song is really hard to sing

The album does not only consist of songs written by the members of SJ-M, but also Jay Chou – Fang Wen Shan produced. Zhou Mi confessed, “Jay Chou is Henry’s favourite singer, and not only is Henry exceptionally happy, but all 8 of us are honoured. The song is really nice to listen, but the pronunciations are really difficult. The members all tried their best during practice to make sure that our pronunciations are accurate.” Eunhyuk also confessed that the rap in “was a really difficult part” SJ-M also express that they wish to have more opportunities to work with other artists from the industry. Kyuhyun added, “I wish to work with Zhang Hui Mei (A-Mei), and only me and Zhang Hui Mei.”

During the course of recording, Chinese member Zhou Mi was a mandarin teacher to all of the members. Sungmin said, “This is my first time recording a Chinese song. To get the perfect pronunciations were really difficult, so I learnt from Zhou Mi. For every recording, Zhou Mi will help me. Although it is really difficult, we still managed to finish it in the end.” According to Zhou Mi, who are the most obedient student, and the most playful? “Everyone is really serious, and when you tell them that their pronunciation is wrong, they will change. As for who is most playful, it will be Kyuhyun. Because his pronunciations are really good, there wasn’t a need for me to worry. But on times when I tell him that he is wrong, he will laugh at him and say, ‘could it be that your pronunciation is wrong?’ In this album, everyone really did well and it was an improvement.”

Siwon’s “disappearance” makes him the ‘prefect boyfriend’ to the members

8 members group SJ-M arrived at the press conference, missing Choi Siwon. Regarding his ‘absence’, the company did not give any reasons, but stated that he will be present on 5th March Super Junior’s concert in Shanghai. The new album name is Too Perfect and when the members were asked about who is the most perfect boyfriend among the SJ-M members, Henry pointed at himself, while Sungmin stood up from his chair, eliciting laughs from everyone. In the end, Kyuhyun decides that, “since this time, there are only 7 of us here, and Super Junior-M has 8 people, but we are without Siwon, so we will make him the most perfect boyfriend.”

Kyuhyun, who had arrived in Beijing earlier to do a recording for a show, stated that he sang , Tan Te and is very up to date about the songs in Mainland. When one of the reporter requested that Kyuhyun to sing a few lines, he flushed and said, “During the show, there were a lot of fans and the hosts were asking me to sing, so I have no choice. A lot of people are also looking forward to this performance. That time, I “wasn’t feeling good”* so I performed. But now, I feel good*, so I don’t think I want to perform. Perhaps next time, when there is a chance, I will perform for everyone to see.”

*: I think he meant the feel of the song.

[News] Super Junior-M in Taiwan To Promote New Album, Eight Missing One, SM Entertainment stresses there was no breach in contract

5 Mar

Super Junior sub-group Super Junior-M (SJ-M) who came to promote their new Manadrin mini album, held a press conference after reaching Taipei on the 24th. However, it was eight* missing one, as Chinese member Zhoumi had problems with his visa. SJ-M’s Taiwanese agency, Fulong Agency, also issued a statement in regards to the previous day’s incident where Taiwan concert organizers wanted to file a lawsuit. They expressed that initially, the Korean agency did not directly sign the contract and at that time, the activities in Taiwan were done according to the terms in the contract.

You could say that SJ-M’s schedule is filled, although there is one less person. However, when they arrived at the press conference, they were still teasing and singing. Moreover, their record company arranged to have the Japanese LOVE bunny on stage, in lieu of the Year of the Rabbit. But the LOVE bunny could have been too nervous and accidentally fell down. SJ-M members hurriedly rushed to help it up, and became the lucky “Rabbit fans”. Siwon, who was a Rabbit**, looked especially happy and revealed that Sungmin’s nickname was “Bunny”. The group of men held the auspicious couplets and took a photo with the LOVE bunny. As usual, they used Mandarin and said that they would work hard.

In addition, with regards to the incident on the 23rd where the concert organizers wanted to sue SJ, their agency SM Entertainment made a statement through the Taiwanese agency, Fulong. They emphasised that SM Entertainment initally gave authority “KO Entertainment”, a Korean company. They also mentioned about the contract with HS Media, with regards to yesterday’s incident. At that time, it was already stated that one member may be unable to participate and perform. Moreover, last month’s contract between the Korean parties and the organizers did not have a clause that said “No performance in Taiwan for six months”. Also, the contract for SJ’s third concert tour was already signed with Taiwan organizer, Super Dome, in mid last year. SM Entertainment once again emphasised that there was no breach of contract, and other related violations.

*- There are eight members in SJM. This was a reference to the number of members.
**- It means that he was born in the lunar Year of the Rabbit.

Zhoumi: Hello everyone, I am Super Junior-M’s Chinese member, Zhou Mi. Really happy to be able to bring our new album to meet our friends from Netease.

Returning to the Chinese market after a gap of 1 and a half year, what do you want to tell the fans the most?

Zhoumi: ah, that, Super Junior-M has waited for 1 and a half year, we have also made our fans wait for 1 and a half year, releasing our newest mini album, Perfection. How do we put it, it’s a new start, and we hope that everyone will continue to support us. Mostly importantly, we are working very hard to do this album, to do music that we like. Regardless of our image, or the music, or the choreography, we have put in our best effort to do our very best, and hope that you will like this album, Perfection.

Can you introduce the new SJ-M members to everyone?

Kyuhyun: This time, when preparing the mini album, there was a change in the members, 2 new members joined. The new members are Sungmin and Eunhyuk. After they joined the group, they allowed our current group to become more perfect, just like our new album’s name, Perfection. Eunhyuk’s dance parts and Sungmin’s singing parts have been a help to us.
Sungmin: Hello everyone, I am Sungmin. I would like to meet everyone.
Eunhyuk: Hello, I am Super Junior-M’s new member, Eunhyuk. I am Eunhyuk (in Chinese).

Sungmin and Eunhyuk, when recording the Chinese album, did they have any pronunciation difficulties?

Sungmin: This is my first time recording a Chinese album, the correct pronunciation is very difficult. I learnt from Zhou Mi, whenever I had to record, Zhou Mi would help me. Although it was difficult, but in the end I still completed the recording.
Eunhyuk: In the song “Love is Sweet”, there was a Chinese rap portion, and it was especially difficult. I also had the help of Zhou Mi, and worked hard to record this song. Not sure if the Chinese fans listen find it nice when they listen to it?

For Eunhyuk, coming to China to work, he gave up his DJ position in Korea, are there any regrets?

Eunhyuk: At the moment, I’ve temporarily stopped my programs with Korean broadcasting stations and radio stations, but it does not mean giving them up. This time, I am coming to China as a Super Junior-M member, I have been working hard, and I also hope that when this album’s promotional activities end, I will be able to return to Korea with good results.

The fur concept in the new album, was it the members’ own idea?

Zhoumi: Most of the concept was prepared for us by the stylists, but before preparing for the album photoshoot, we held our own meeting, and discussed with the photographer the result that we wanted for our photos, and we hoped to express our most perfect, most unique, and different image to everyone. Because previously, Super Junior-M, in our 1st and 2nd albums, we had a sunny and handsome concept, and this time, we are more mysterious. Most importantly, because we are regarding this album, Perfection, as a new starting point, we hope to bring everyone a different feeling. So, do you like it? Do you like it? Is it okay? Okay.
Kyuhyun: I like it more.

Let’s talk about the new song Jay Chou and Fang Wenshan composed for you.

Zhoumi: Fang Wenshan… This time, in our album, Jay Chou wrote a song, the name is
Kyuhyun: Love is Sweet
Zhoumi: We were quite happy such an excellent musician wrote a song for us, because Jay Chou is a singer that Henry likes a lot, so this time, it’s not only Henry that was very happy, but for the 8 of us, today Siwon is not here… For the 8 of us, it is an extremely happy thing. The tune was nice, the pronunciation was difficult, but the members worked really hard to pronounce their pronunciation well. In this mini album, we recorded a total of 6 songs. Before this, everyone’s impression of Super Junior-M was that we followed a dance music style, and this time, our title song follows that style, but what is more special is that aside from Perfection, we added a lot of emotional songs, in this album, most of the other songs are emotional songs. We also hope that everyone will be able to focus their attention on our singing abilities.
Kyuhyun: During “A Secret That Could Not Be Told” press conference, Super Junior met Jay Chou. I have a good first impression of him, really like his songs, and this time, being able to work with him is very delightful.

This time, when going to Taiwan to do promotions, did you meet Jay Chou again?

Ryeowook: Really thankful to Jay Chou for composing such a good song for us. This time when we went to Taiwan, we didn’t have the chance to meet him. Hopefully in future, there is a chance to meet, and sit down to eat and talk with him.

Have you considered working with any other local musicians?

Kyuhyun: If there is the chance, in future I would like to work with Zhang Hui Mei. I would like to work with Zhang Hui Mei by myself.
Sungmin: As of now, we don’t have any exact plans, but if there really is the chance, there are many huge stars in China, I hope that in future, we will have the chance to work together with singers in the Chinese singing industry.

Henry, can you talk about the feeling of composing your own song?

Eunhyuk: Are you ready?
Henry: I’m ready. Erm in this time, I have a solo song, it’s called Confession.
Eunhyuk: Confession.
Henry: The English name is Off My Mind.
Eunhyuk: Off My Mind.
Henry: This song, me and a few of my American friends…. In Berkeley University I met some musician friends and we wrote a song together. Uhm, the song lyrics were written by me, actually my standard of Chinese isn’t very good, but for everyone, I worked hard and wrote this song – the lyrics and the music, for everyone. Hope everyone can enjoy this song.

Did you include your own feelings and experience in the composing of the song?

Henry: Uhm, these song lyrics are talking about, the meaning is…… If you look at the lyrics, it is like you are talking, the feeling like you are talking to the girl. So the first verse says “Girl when I see you, I go cra-cra-crazy, I just want you to be my baby. It’s like the feeling of saying it, the feeling is like that.
Eunhyuk: Good boy, good boy.

Zhou Mi wrote the lyrics for the new song True Love, why did you persist in composing?

Zhoumi: Errr actually, I have a dream, that is to….
Kyuhyun: Dream.
Zhoumi: That’s right.
Kyuhyun: Castle of dreams….
Zhoumi: That’s right. I have a wish that in every single Super Junior-M album, I am able to take part in the composition process. In the first album, there were 3 songs written by me, and in the second album, Super Girl, there were 2 songs, I also wrote song lyrics for Kangta Sunbae, and up to now, Perfection…. I want to try my best to experience songs with different feels, for example slow songs, fast songs, or playful, cute songs. Right now I am not only trying out the lyrics writing, recently I have tried composing the tune, but I hope to be able to compose more good music, and have more chances to let every listen to it in future.

When learning Chinese, who is the most intelligent, who is the most playful and hard to teach?

Zhoumi: The most intelligent student? Everyone is very intelligent, for example if you tell them where their pronunciation is wrong, they will correct it. And there is something else, what else is there? The most playful student? The most playful student is him (points to Kyuhyun).
Kyuhyun: Me?
Zhoumi: He’s the most playful because his pronunciation is too good, he doesn’t need me to worry about his pronunciation, so sometimes, if I were to go “Kyuhyun, this pronunciation isn’t that good”, he would joke with me “No, it’s your own pronunciation that’s not good, hyung, it’s your pronunciation that’s not good!”. Actually, this album, everyone’s pronunciation, I feel that it compared previously to the 1st and 2nd album, the improvement is very huge. Aside from this, Eunhyuk and Sungmin hyung, because they are the 2 members that just joined us, when they were recording, they were very worried about their pronunciation, afraid that their pronunciation couldn’t keep up with the other members. But actually, their pronunciation is very good, so when I am paying attention to their pronunciation, I am extremely statisifed.
Sungmin: Although right now, my Chinese isn’t very fluent, but I am working very hard. Beside me, there’s also a very good teacher, Zhou Mi, I will follow Zhou Mi and learn Chinese well. I really anticipate coming to China to take part in activities and performances in future.

While preparing the album, were there any unforgettable incidents?

Kyuhyun: While preparing for this album, there were 2 versions of the MV we had to film, one was the Chinese version, the other was the Korean version, so it required 2 times the amount of time as compared to a normal MV. During the 2-3 days, we hardly got any sleep, it was more tiring.

Can you recommend which member is the most perfect boyfriend?

Sungmin: Ermmmm…. (stands up)
Kyuhyun: Don’t be mistaken, Sungmin just wants to go out. I feel… I feel…. This time, there’s only 7 of us here, and Super Junior-M has 8 people, we’re short of Siwon, so we’ll choose him as the most perfect boyfriend in our hearts.
Eunhyuk: Super Junior-M is one group, the strengths of 8 people added together, that is perfection.

Previously, Kyuhyun performed “Tan Te”, what are your thoughts about it? Can you sing a line now?

Kyuhyun: Actually, when preparing for the album, Zhou Mi and I went to search for which songs were the most popular in China, which songs were better known. After that, Zhou Mi and I watched a video of “Tan Te”, and coincidentally, during the recording of the Beijing program, we saw this video information again. At the live venue, there were many fans and the hosts let me sing. I had no way not to do it, everyone was awaiting this performance. At that time, I performed lethargically. Now, I’m feeling energetic now, so I feel embarrassed to perform. In future, if there is a chance, I will prepare well and show everyone.

[News] Super Junior-M Henry “I thought Super Junior were gay”

5 Mar

Super Junior-M’s Henry reveals his shocking revelation of his first impression of Super Junior.

On the 1st of March, during SBS “Strong Heart”, Henry mentioned his first impression of the Super Junior members, saying, “In Korea, it is okay to walk closely and have a lot of skin ship, but overseas, this can be easily misunderstood as being gay.”

Henry also said, “When I first met the members, they gave me a slap on the butt as a greeting, frankly, that was pretty gay.” “Leeteuk was the only who did the most butt-slapping.”

After the topic on being gay, Henry moved on to talk about transgender.

About “pretty idol” Kim Heechul, Henry said he was “really like a girl, with long hair, and really pretty. I thought he was a transgender,” eliciting laughter from everyone.

Eunhyuk also got a taste of culture shock from Henry.

He said, “at first, Henry called our SM founder, Lee Soo Man, ‘Mr Lee’ ” Henry replied, “I didn’t know who was that in the beginning, so I thought he was just the SM boss, so I said, ‘Hey, Mr Lee’ as a greeting. Then he handed me his name card, saying that I can contact him,” causing another round of laughter among the audiences.

Eunhyuk added, “even now, when Henry see Lee Soo Man Sunbaemin, he still uses his English greeting of ‘Mr Lee’ and Lee Soo Man will say, ‘We are all friends’ and he wouldn’t be mad”

Eunhyuk’s letter to Sukira listeners (Eunhyuk’s Last Day)

5 Mar

Although I’ve already mentioned this before, you guys, the only ones who received the letter written by the best group DJ; Eunhyuk, its good to take that sense of responsibility away.

Eunhyuk DJ really has to leave temporarily, to me, it’s a night whereby I have many things to say to everyone. Everyone, everyone will probably feel the same while listening to me reading out my letter, it doesn’t matter if you guys got a shock; it’s written just like this.

In these 5 years, during this period of time, doing things while sitting in this position, spending every night together with all of you, it felt really blissful. Me, having to leave this position for a couple of months, it’s not a permanent farewell. Just like this, let’s continue to stay together. Although it’s a temporary farewell, today’s leaving is my most selfish decision in my whole life, it’s a decision made due to my job, please respect it.

And Leeteuk-shi, when introducing songs using English, don’t always push it to Yesung, you read some yourself too. When I’m not around, don’t randomly take pictures with female guests. Also, talk about topics regarding me often, and Yesung-shi, you did really well during this period of time to have come to this position, do according to what our listeners say, they really like adorable things, adorable actions, acting cute, it’s tired doing all these but please show these to them often.

And Leeteuk-shi, don’t be too hurt or feel inferior when there’s no reactions to your jokes, you’re a meek person. So I only have all these requests, and please, really have to talk about topics regarding me during Sukira.

Ah really, now I’m left with less than 3 minutes of time. I’ll say a bit more now. My first Sukira DJ broadcast was 2006 August 21th, really.. Actually I really didn’t think that I could be a DJ, I’m not good at words, wasn’t active at that point of time too. People who allowed me in becoming a DJ, really very thankful, in these 5 years, the ones who always listen to my voice every night at 10pm, really very thankful to everyone. I really won’t cry today, because I’ll be back. Because I’ll be back after 3 months or so, thus I’ll not let everyone notice my tears. Really. I should be smiling actually, and when I’m in China, everyone must show me and the other SJ-M members more support, I’ll always miss Sukira. And having the thought of Leeteuk-hyung and Yesung-hyung who are sitting here in these positions in me, I’ll work hard in activities.
