    I just hope there new song won’t be another recycled Sorry Sorry song and mv in a box with slow motion 360 camera…… well the hope dies the last (it still has time till 1st July).

    i don’t take seriously SM’s album concept photos. i just enjoy them as they are.

    BTW, what’s soulful house genre? That’s what they’re calling the title track.

    • pataridze

      I bet it is mr. simple part 2. That song was more like mashup and wtf description like  soulful house sounds just like it. Maybe (hopefully) I am wrong and it is something like a It’s you.

      • http://profiles.google.com/krstydlght kirsty delight

        Well, if it’s It’s You I’d love it.

      • Haibara Christie

        I actually think that this will NOT be like Mr.Simple/Bonamana/Sorry Sorry because YYJ is not the main composer of the title track…as far as I have heard, anyway.

    • Salmonsushi

      Example of “soulful house”: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZxYCkZ9CPho

      Sounds promising.

  • black_rose45000

    “They’ve conquered their fair share of trials and tribulations, including sub-units”
    How is that even a trial and tribulation? From what I know, the subunits formation had no negative reasons behind it.

    “This is undoubtedly going to be a turning point in Super Junior’s career. Kangin has returned from the military, Leeteuk is going to enlist sometime later this year, and Sungmin is blonde.”
    I don’t get how blond Sungmin is relevant for SJ’s career (I could rant, however, about how I don’t think it’s relevant to his musical character and that he made a mistake but I rather stop at this).

    Not to offend the author with my comments though, these are the only things I disagreed on. 
    Honestly, I tend to judge songs by their titles. Brick me if you want, but seriously, when I heard the title “Mr. Simple” last year, I gave up any expectations at something decent, on my taste.
    I was, however, expecting something different this time, and though I knew they’d go in the same musical direction as before, I didn’t expect something like “Sexy free single” (whatever the title is). And I think they made a terrible mistake.
    But there are only a few days left till I see if I’m proven wrong or not.

  • haiitsvi

    I’m trying to keep my hopes high. These teaser photos are WAY better than the hideous Mr. Simple ones. I still cannot bring myself to hang up my poster just because of Siwon in neon green boxers. Not happening.

    I’m hoping for an “It’s You” or “Sorry Sorry Answer” type song. I read somewhere that Kyuhyun thought this album was their best one yet so I think that’s a good thing.

    • black_rose45000

      I just read now that they said this is going to be different from what they did before.

      I just hope that by “different” they mean…well, “different”.

  • happy_slip

    Am I the only one who thinks that these concept pictures feel like they’re from the same team who conceptualized SHINee’s and f(x)’s teasers? lol

    Anyhow, I am excited for this cycle mainly because they’ll be promoting alongside 2NE1 — god have any of you seen Dara’s teaser btw? 

    • lewhuiying

      Oh God, SHINee’s dreamy, ethereal “young French boys” concept? Yes.

    I hate to admit it but the only “sexy” one is Siwon and maybe Donghae.

    “Single”… Yeah, right.

      I can’t find the sexiness anywhere in anyone =/

  • Kymberly Moore

    I’m excited and worried about the release. Hopefully it’s not the same sound and they’re not stuck in a box for their MV. :-/  I want more harmonies, no auto tune, fresh choreography, everyone singing, less rap, and *gasp* a concept for the MV. Is that too much to ask? I agree with the author, SuJu are definitely safe to experiment.

  • UJjaejoong

    atleast i dont see a version 2 of siwon’s neon undies from the Mr. Simple promotions!! THAT was hard to stomach! meh!
    hahahah and YES donghae does look like a nun!!
    cant even recognize the other members whoever they are *shrugs*

  • edenhyper

    I feel sorry for them. Honestly these guys are now in their mid to late twenties, for the love of God don’t give them the flowers from f(x) and SHINee for their concepts. It’s a sad day for Super Junior fans when they come out with blurry pictures with flower headbands. Honestly. I’m trying hard to avoid any of SM’s teaser barrage and really hoping for a decent album. Then again, it seems a bit rushed to me with them pushing this album out just because Leeteuk is going to the army and putting Kangin into the promotion with him just being released. I am hoping for the best because they are what introduced me to k-pop. I just…don’t have much faith. Shocking.

    • black_rose45000

      And don’t forget the girl hair they put on Eunhyuk and Sungmin.

      • edenhyper

        Oh God don’t remind me, unless they’re bloody elf’s from Lord of the Rings it doesn’t work on them. Also that veil on Donghae…what the heck.

          Donghae.. mail order bride… 

          • edenhyper


            This whole thing is a nightmare. I think they resized Siwon’s picture weird as well. His face looks squashed as well. It’s so embarrassing to see this in 2012. You think they’d just give them some cool suits or just nice clothes. They should be done with the horrible themes that bands go through in the first two years of their careers. Nope. Super Junior just continues with the crazy.

            Kangin honestly is a nightmare. They said he wasn’t going to a part of the promotions, and then suddenly there he is with ten layers of foundation slapped on his face.

            In all honesty I didn’t even realise that was Kyu in his picture. I bet Kibum is probably happy not to be a part of SJ’s promotions when he sees them dressed as deranged clowns.

            I will always love Super Junior, but really enough is enough.

          • KalisaCat

            Kyu just said: I WON’T PUT ON THIS! NO WAY!
            And I bet the only one who was laughing hard was Heechul XDD

    • goldengluvsk2

      ikr? teasers are unrelated to the title songs or albums but man, when i saw them i felt they were a mashup of f(x) and shinee’s flower headbands with snsd’s princesses -kinda blurred- the boys concept photos! I felt uneasy… recycling is good but in Kpop and especially from the same company… its NOT a good thing…

      • edenhyper

        I honestly wanted to hit myself. I know Super Junior went through the horrible Mr. Simple mess. I was hoping for something…better already. Instead we get weird images of grown men with too much make-up and flowers. I’m incredibly embarrassed for them. SM really needs to wake up.

  • http://twitter.com/A7316A AB

    I read somewhere that Kyuhyun said at an “I AM” screening that this sixth album was the most musically satisfying. Maybe that bodes well for Super Junior?

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003507824553 ICassie Gaemgyu

      that would mean he got to sing a lot?? I hope I hope I hope I hope I hope…..

      • http://twitter.com/A7316A AB

        If Kyuhyun gets to sing more, that would be fantastic. :D

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/YQ53WK5K4DPXQ5DIBKDELB6WPE Camille

    Apparently, Eunhyuk said that most of the songs in the new album were written by him and/or Donghae. That’s pretty relieving because those two are pretty good at what they do.

    Still holding my breath for their title song. SM never lets their artists touch their title songs, except for Jonghyun writing the lyrics to “Juliette.”

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003507824553 ICassie Gaemgyu

    It doesn’t seem that they had (or would have) enough time put into this album for it to be different.. they were constantly touring or apart from each other the whole year? But nonetheless, good or bad, the album sales and viewing stats would be spectacular.. (there are instructions for all fans to watch 1000000000times and buy as many as possible from Hanteo/Gaon/etcetc registered sellers…..)
    Its almost like fans are expecting it to be really bad? But I guess its good to expect the worst.. I know I was ready to throw myself off the highest building when the first 8teasers came out…and got progressively worse and still Kyu’s pic hasn’t appeared. But was pleasantly surprised that they didn’t make him wear truck loads of makeup and a pink wig… PHEW!! But I still hate his hairstyle, like he is hiding a bald spot (heaven’s forbid)…

  • goldengluvsk2

    im used to the opposite concepts and album names like mr. simple and their fashion in the teasers were everything but “simple”… i think of teasers as unrelated “photoshoots” so im not that puzzled about it :) im more concerned about their sound.. id really appreciate something different that dont feels rushed or recycled… im crossing my fingers :33 

  • http://twitter.com/#!/lovetigerfist xnopex

    unpopular opinion as suju was one of the first kpop bands i got into, but i think they’re a bit too um, mature (in entertainment years) to go with the flower boy concept. but hey, i laughed and was confused at the shinee half-naked boy on a chair concept and i’m still screaming I’M SO CURIOUS YEAHHH at the top of my lungs so yeah.

  • muggle87

    i am just hoping that they don’t release another sorry sorry version.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/MMRQEZEPSNJ26LJ7XJNDDM5NCI JasmineA

    When I think of Sexy,Free and Single…I think of a women declaring her independance…I dunno…maybe I just listen to too much Beyonce, but that’s what I think of lol. I think the photos look interesting, but knowing SM they probably won’t have anything to do with the MV.

    • edenhyper

      In music I’d say that saying is used mainly by women to declare their independence. The first time I’m seeing a boy band use it. Then again they probably didn’t even understand the notion behind the saying. Which we shouldn’t be so shocked about really. I mean, I’m not saying men can’t also be happy about being free and single, just the context of the saying has always been geared towards women. SM probably needs some researchers for their song titles.

      However, why is Shindong saying this. Isn’t he going to be married soon? Ha.

      • black_rose45000

        I heard Shindong broke up with his gf O.o Someone clear me on this?

        • meau

          Nope, still engaged. She sent him a flower thing to congratulate him for opening a (something) and it said something like not marrying him if it fails. It was a joke, basically.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/LBRQ4PSLIW3DQUGHFRLERKEBRM nguyen

    Once again, the teasers have nothing to do with the real MV, and Suju is in the box, again. But well, ELF will (have to) take anything SM give them.

  • noiha

    what’s the point of all these concepts when in the end the track is just going to be another sorry sorry? and imagining them wearing those stuffs on stages… *shudder* i’ve had enough with mr. simple outfits and the album cover atrocities.

  • http://twitter.com/kmoo4986 Kymberly Moore

    They’re in a damn box again :-/  I’m excited for the choreography though. It looks very “Stomp the Yard” lol.

    Just watched their MV Teaser. All my hopes are crushed (hello there sorry sorry ver 5).

    • black_rose45000

      I like to call it Mr. Simple v.2 since that song was just terrible and ludicrous. SS and Bonamana are at least decent x.x
      I’m looking forward to a couple of the album tracks now after reading their description, but at the end of the day, no matter how great the album turns out to be, it can’t undo the wrong that the title track will prove itself to be.

      • Fei

        EXACTLY. the main title is the most important one because it carries the first impression of the whole album. so people will judge it by its title track (which is somewhat sad D:)

  • ilovessantokki

    Can the headline for the SFS MV review be ‘Super Junior upgrades to a slightly more expensive box this time around!”

    Disappointing, but not surprising.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=513439726 Sharon Overlord

    I agree, why do they all look sad when the concept is sexy , free and single? I think they got dumped by their girlfriends and went a little crazy. Therefore we have the teaser pics with them covered in branches, nets, gold dust, etc. 

    But ya, this album seems a bit rushed so Im not expecting something amazing. I just hope they have a few ballads that I will like and a few good up tempo songs. Suju’s songs are usually my cup of tea. I tend to like their sound. 

    But im just hoping for them to do their sub group thing, bc that’s when they truly get experimental. 

  • http://twitter.com/veria10 Veria

    Honestly I never once get the feeling that SM have a clear idea of where they want to take SJ. The last few years (since Bonamana) can attest to that – they’ve just been stuck in the same rut with no idea how to get out. Suju got super lucky when Yoo Young Jin created the masterpiece that is Sorry Sorry because it finally gave them a direction and concept that was theirs; mature, suit wearing guys. Only that got ruined because SM took it too far and gave them Sorry Sorry versions 2 and 3 thinking that it will work time and time again.
    My hopes for this album aren’t very high, but at least it has to be better than Mr Simple. 

    • http://twitter.com/lilacbox h2osgsg

      as i commented before… you surely will be surprised! this album is so different, already listened to it.. but with what you say there is so right :)

      • KalisaCat

        Agree, the album sounds very trendy. I mean, come on, it was summer and all you wanted just to dance with your friends to the dance songs. At least, I had that kind of feelings XDD And SFS is the one of that kind of ‘summer’ dance songs. :)

  • http://twitter.com/SjundeSara Sara

    The album seems to be a bit rushed but at the same time, SM seems to have dished out more money for this comeback than SuJu’s last two ones.

    Teaser photos: While the teaser photos do not have anything to do with the videos actual concept I still like them for the most part, with Ryewook’s, Leeteuk’s and Yesung’s being my favorites. The only ones I don’t really like are Siwon’s and Kangin’s because I just think that there is a bit to much going on in theirs.

    MV teaser: They are in a box again but at least they got a upgraded box. The choreo looks awesome. People have said that they think the audio in the teaser sounds like Sorry Sorry 4.0 and there I would have to disagree. The only thing I can actually think of is Sungmin’s part in the second verse of Mr Simple where they have a sort of have a clapping sound. But then again I have kind of given up on people and the whole ‘songs resembling’ issue since some seem to think SuJu’s Monster and Sorry Sorry are identical.

    I’m currently listening to the highlight medley and I like what I hear. If the first song is “Sexy, free and single” I’m going to be extremely happy because it sounds amazing. All of the snippets sound good. Really anticipating “For you” and the song that they played when they showed Ryeowook’s teaser photo.

    The album will be released in just a few hours and until then I’ll try to not get my hopes too high.  Hopefully, this time, SM wont disappoint.

    • http://twitter.com/lilacbox h2osgsg

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=729154428 Chastina Li

      It is totally normal that you feel the album is made in a rush for time because music is not what sm sells, especially with SJ. SJ was a commercial idol group from the very start, just count how many members take on the roles of mc and gagperson. All of their albums were filled with remixes and mediocre songs, but they still manage to rise to the top with a single hit and lots of promotional activities. CD sells don’t make money because only the most loyal fans buy them, so SM doesn’t bother to make good quality music to attract people. It upsets me that SM even started to push ads into MV’s this year, just how commercial can kpop get and just how much is there left music-wise in kpop are the questions I want to be answered. 

  • http://twitter.com/lilacbox h2osgsg

    i hope you all listen to the album well since it’s released now. i already listened to all the songs and it exceeds all expectations. nothing like sorry sorry 4.0 or 5.0 at all. not even close. :))) i am so proud of sj. finally sm gave them this opportunity to show everyone that they’re real artists.

  • oathy

    I’m just embarrassed for those who have been saying ‘Sorry Sorry v4, mr Simple v2′ because now that it has been released, none of the songs even sound like their previous title songs.
    Sexy, Free & Single takes sexy onto a whole new level, I was a bit worried it wouldn’t have a lot of singing but now that I’ve heard it – I haven’t been able to stop, I am in love with the chorus. It reminds me a TINY bit of  Girls’ Generation’s The Boy’s vocal intro but still distinct enough to say it is an original sounding track on its own. There are 3 or 4 ballads or ‘slow’ songs so there are still several upbeat songs for those who prefer than more. The only thing that I am disappointed or a bit sad about is that there are only 10 songs! Come on now, :( Hopefully (Inevitably) there will be a repackaged album with more songs! And the album cover… SM must have spent a lot of money on the photoshoots for the teasers yet the album is something you could easily make on paint. Maybe they are trying to give the whole 80’s sexy and classical feel, if you remember records from then and you see the album cover then you should understand what I am talking about, but it’s very bland and unfortunately boring. I hope the repackaged version has a better album cover so I can use that on my iPhone instead of its current one.
    Ultimately, the album gives a very sexy and historical feel as they sing a lot about historians or well the titles are named after them anyway. Musically, there are more guitars and raw instruments and less electronic synths – drums – basses etc.

    Personal favourite songs: Sexy, Free & Single, NOW, Butterfly, Daydream
    Least favourite songs: Someday
    Rating out of 10: 7/10

    • KalisaCat

      I like Now and Butterfly. But I love SPY most of all. Probably, because of their ‘James Bond’ concept ~ Eunhyuk looks sooo hot!

  • oathy

    Guys, you have to remember that it is Kpop.
    It is VERY rare for a K-pop musician to compose and write their own song. I think Eunhyuk composed the song Gulliver for this album. But anyway, because they are under music companies, they all do that work for them (find songs, come up with concepts, compose/write blah blah) and all the idols have to do is record their vocals, learn the choreography for the dance, record the music video for the songs that will be released and a few photoshoots. So realistically, it doesn’t take up a lot of time. But that makes sense because they are always busy with other stuff anyways like other promotions, endorsements, tours etc. That is probably why it feels very rushed and new Kpop music comes out very often compared to Western music.

    Compared to most bands or other artists who actually write their own music now that can take years to feel comfortable with it (I myself, have been struggling as a music writer/composer for the past 5 years too).

    Being ELF makes me think that “never look at the title album”. someone told me before, if u only listen to the title song of SJ album, it means that u listen nothing. that’s so true. i means (sorry to my fellow ELFs) if i have to rank all the song in the album, the title song never reach the middle position of the chart. the best songs are always the unpromoted ones to me.
    i don’t know whether SM is too lazy to make new change or they are too afraid of changing so they find a safer way for their artists. Talking about this, not only SJ but other SM artists too. 
    Compared to the previous albums, this 6th album is out of my expectations (except for the promoted MV). high improvement.
    Anyway, it’s just an opinion from a fan being with SJ for a long time.
