Super Junior revealed the story behind their distinct style of greeting, as well as ranking their members in terms of dancing ability on Mnet’s ‘MIC’.
On the upcoming episode, leader Leeteuk revealed an interesting story behind their distinct style of greeting, “We are Super Junior” (with the special emphasis on the “or” syllable in “junior”).
For those of you who aren’t familiar with how the greeting came to be, Super Junior’s greeting style of placing an emphasis on one syllable was actually started by Boom, but popularized through Super Junior. Leeteuk lightheartedly explained, “Boom has transferred the copyright to our greeting. A contract was formed through an amicable settlement between the two parties. One of the conditions of the contract was that I would sacrifice myself for the rest of the members by becoming a student of Boom Academy.”
On the same episode, fellow member Kyuhyun made people laugh as he ranked the top five Super Junior members in terms of dancing ability. He confidently stated, “Since my dancing skills are ranked fifth, I want to try and create a performance-based unit… The ranking for dancing skills goes in the order of Eunhyuk, Donghae, Shindong, Sungmin, and fifth place was originally Leeteuk. But seeing as how he is doing these days, I think I can definitely be considered as fifth.”
The members also revealed that there was something big in store for this year. Leeteuk hinted, “In 2012, a surprising event will happen to Super Junior.” He also added, “I will promote as hard as I can to make sure I will have no regrets, and then enlist in the military.”
