Past members

Super Junior (Korean: 슈퍼주니어), also known as SJ or SuJu is a South Korean boy band, under SM Entertainment. It consists of thirteen boys: Leeteuk, Eunhyuk, Siwon, Ryeowook, Kyuhyun, Heechul, Han Geng, Kibum, Kangin, Sungmin, Shindong, Yesung, and Donghae. The oldest, Leeteuk is commonly seen as the leader of the group. It is currently the largest boy band in the world. However, the status of three of the members is currently unknown, because Han Geng has left SM Entertainment, Kibum is busy with acting activities, and Kangin has enlisted into the South Korean military.[source?]

They have released four albums: Super Junior 05 (TWINS) with only twelve members. Kyuhyun joined later during the release of the song "U". They then released three more, with the full set of thirteen members: Don't Don in 2007; SORRY SORRY in 2009, and their latest: Bonamana, 2010. Sorry, Sorry excludes Kangin due to suspension, and Bonamana excludes Kangin, Han Geng, and Kibum.

Super Junior is led by their leader Leeteuk, or Park Jung Su, and has four lead dancers/main dancers: Eunhyuk (main dancer), Shindong (lead dancer), Donghae (main dancer), and Han Geng (lead dancer), and also has five lead singers/main singers: Ryeowook (main singer), Kyuhyun (main singer), Yesung (main singer), Sungmin (lead singer) and Donghae (lead singer). Ryeowook, Kyuhyun, and Yesung belong in a subgroup called Super Junior K.R.Y. All members except Kibum have been put into these subgroups: Super Junior Trot, Super Junior M, and Super Junior Happy.

Super Junior KRY sings many slow songs that show-off the voices of the singer. Super Junior T sings songs in a trot style. Super Junior M sings in Chinese and their main audience is not Korean, but Chinese. Super Junior Happy sing very bright and happy songs.

Since 2011, Sungmin and Kyuhyun had formed dancers position replaced for Han Geng.
