Not gonna lie when I first saw Super Junior the first thing that popped in my head was the song by Flight of the Conchords “Too Many Dicks on the Dance Floor” And without being a fan of K-Pop I had heard of them in passing but my initial thought was , “Hell it’s too many, how do people learn their names?” then of course there is the possibility of more than one looking similar or having a similar name then I’m really screwed up. There are 10 of them… 10!!! (Actually I’m not even sure about that, the number changes every year)I’m not even counting the two extra fuckers from Super Junior M. How big is the damn stage?
I remember when I first got into K-Pop, I was always amazed how companies would come out with these groups that were literally the size of a small class room.. well know I know. It’s more marketable. The more members you have the more sub-units you can have in this case: Super Junior K.R.Y, Super Junior T, Super Junior M, Super Junior H, and Donghae & Eunhyuk (Super Junior D & E). Plus you have to account for members doing other stuff and not being active in the group and let’s not forget compulsory military service.. which can’t be avoided…. well it could be that’s another post for another day.
So how did I get into these jerks.. believe me it’s purely by accident. I kept seeing members on shows not having a clue who they were. First it was that damn Choi Si-won (I’m a little angry here…) on The King of Dramas, then here comes that jerk Kangin on Global Request Show – A Song For You still didn’t have a clue and connect the dots…. it was not until I watched.that sassy mutherfucker Kim Hee-chul on We Got Married: Global Edition and I kept thinking (I know him from somewhere) now here’s the kicker it wasn’t until I saw the episode where they got to SM Entertainment and bring chocolates to Henry (that thirsty ass. I swear him and Jackson together hitting on girls would be hilarious) and Zhou Mi (who clearly was feeling the second-hand embarrassment)..
So I casually mentioned to a friend that I though (in my mind) that they were “stalking me” and she laughs and gives me the Super Junior World Tour Super Show 4 and Mamacita albums (why did you do that…. why?) And knowing me I had to get more. which is how I ended up with the Sexy Free and Single Album.
If you’re gonna name your album your title track better be damn good, cause on the name alone I decided, “this is gonna be my jam AND my freakin’ theme song”
So with any K-Pop song there is bound to be some confusion…. I even posted about it on my Facebook .. FYI: I’m still singing “my lyrics” I dare you to tell me I’m wrong.
I still maintain my stance that there are too many dicks on the dance floor… only now I’m enjoy it a little more
Sexy, Free & Single can be found on Super Junior’s album Sexy, Free & Single
Until Next Time….
