MANILA, Philippines – Thousands of fans waited last night for the release “Mr. Simple,” the fifth album of boy band Super Junior that has already topped different real-time music charts in Korea.
On music site Dosirak, 10 songs in the album occupied the top ten positions. On Bugs and Daum, the track “Mr. Simple” also occupied the No.1 spot. On Naver and Melon music charts, “Mr. Simple” landed at No. 2.
Fans have been eagerly awaiting the release of the album, with SM Entertainment teasing them by releasing photos and the music video teaser. “Mr. Simple” contains 13 tracks—among them “Mr. Simple,” “Be My Girl,” “Opera,” “Walkin’,” “Y,” “Good Friends,” and the title track.
SM Entertainment said that the song “Mr. Simple” expresses how modern people “lose their achievement for their job, love and dream without breadth of mind in such a complicated world, with humorous and metaphorical words.”
The agency told fans to expect an intense and energetic performance from Super Junior when they start promoting on TV music shows.
Super Junior member Donghae composed “Y,” an R&B song that “expresses the emotional downfall caused by a break-up.”
On the other hand, “Good Friends” is about friendship in Super Junior while “Opera” tells the story of Super Junior being global stars.
Super Junior will hold a press conference on Aug. 4 to formally announce their comeback and answer questions from fans all over the world. The event will be streamed on Facebook and YouTube.
