It's been over 15 years since the debut of OG idol group Super Junior. The group was a K-pop game-changer: Its initial lineup attracted a diverse fanbase and its large member count (more to love with thirteen members!) transformed Hallyu history forever by paving the way for the creation of subunits as we know it. ICYDK, prior to Super Junior's debut, K-pop groups were composed of only four to five members on average.
Through the years, the boys have experimented with genres that ranged from pop and R&B to rock music and EDM. They've amassed a plethora of awards through hit songs spanning more than 20 albums. Super Junior members have also flexed their musical versatility by showing new sides of themselves through projects spanning five subgroups and occasional solo releases.
Oh, and did we mention that they can act too? Check out these faves featuring Super Junior members that you absolutely need to add to your streaming list:
