Super Junior Considering Creating Japanese Subunit

Super Junior has been in Japan holding their "Super Show 4" concerts in Tokyo. During a press conference before the show, the group revealed they are thinking about forming a Japanese subunit.

"We never stayed in Japan to promote and it’s not like we had official promotions in Japan, either. But we think because of K-Pop’s overall popularity, we gained a lot of fan support. In order to return the love, we are also thinking about unit groups in Japan," the group stated.

In addition, the group also commented on comparisons to TVXQ's popularity in Japan.

"We think we benefited a lot from Hallyu’s recent popularity. Many people compare our popularity to TVXQ’s, but we really have a long way to go. TVXQ’s fandom is beyond imagination. TVXQ first started with small scale concerts with only 500 seats when they first came to Japan. They worked extremely hard to work their way up and achieved the results they did," the said.

Although remaining modest in front of the press, Super Junior's popularity in Japan has become undeniable as their latest Japanese single "Opera" climbed to the top of the Oricon Daily Singles chart. The single has sold over 150,000 copies in 6 days.

Korean ELFs would riot if they did.

Don't let the length of time between M and now fool you, them bitches still HATE on Henry and Zhou Mi.

Hmm, I'm going to consider these people for the group:

Sungmin, Donghae, Kangin (I fairly like it in Sorry, Sorry)...Siwon, and Eunhyuk

although, I do agree with the commenter above me. I would have liked to see SJ bring in Zhou Mi and Henry into the official group

arent most of them going to the military service soon? I dont think they will have time to establish themselves in japan and I thought that was the reason SM didnt make them debut in japan

Only Leeteuk is going this year. Kangin is already back, so they could debut with 9 members if that is what SM decides. They already have a very large fanbase in Japan.

If the 3 stooges have a part of it, not interested. If Donghae or HenMi have a part in it, I'll gladly eat it up.

Gimme a subunit with Siwon and Kangin (who I have missed DEARLY and need more of to sate my hunger!), and I will be happy.

Well, they topped Oricon 6th day sales, right? Not bad (- . -)
Some can't even top Oricon daily chart for once~
But don't speak like they're so popular in Japan, my dear ELF; coz their sales are still so small when compared with Arashi's (over 350,000 on the 1st day) and NMB48's (the same figure), who topped the chart for the last 5 days.
Exaggerating, that's why I don't like Korean media D:
And don't be angry with me, coz it's the truth, no more, no less~

yeah I dont like it when korean media exaggerate things too.

K-Pop’s overall popularity

Will they be able to speak Japanese..?
mikansama 15th-May-2012 07:45 am (UTC)
One of them speaks... enough. They'll probably just make him into the mouthpiece like Sooyoung is for SNSD.

I was surprised to hear Yesung changed his solo. One of his best live performances on IM2 and he brought it on stage to Tokyo Dome. Maybe it was to thank the support he gets from jelfs :)

Glad opera is doing well!
