Even newbie K-pop stans would have heard of the mega hit "Sorry, Sorry" (it spawned a dance craze so popular, the CPDRC Dancing Inmates of Cebu went viral for their synchronized moves). But if you're wondering why your sibling, friend, or aunt (yes, the fandom is at tita levels rn!) is so obsessed with Super Junior, this roundup is a good start.

ALL THINGS SUPER JUNIOR, RIGHT THIS WAY:

The K-pop group debuted on November 6, 2005 with the SM Performance-heavy track "Twins", but their discography throughout the years has been anything but simple (pun intended). The current lineup of 10 members includes Leeteuk, Heechul, Yesung, Shindong, Sungmin (currently on hiatus from group activities), Eunhyuk, Donghae, Siwon, Ryeowook, and Kyuhyun.

Altogether, the members can sing, dance, play musical instruments, compose and produce songs, act, host, direct music videos and concert stages, and more—so don't sleep on this talented group! Have we caught your attention yet? Get ready to become an E.L.F. (Ever Lasting Friends) and dive into a blue world (the fandom's official color) with this playlist:

15. "Twins (Knock Out)" (2005)

Super Junior's debut track was actually a remake of the British pop-slash-rock group Triple 8's 2003 song “Knock Out. It showcased what Super Junior would eventually become known for—slick choreography with incredibly smooth position changes. (Just ignore the early 2000s styling, lol!)

Knock out
Don’t settle for an ordinary life
Knock out
You’re not just a small dot in this world

14. "No Other" (2010)

The music video for "No Other" recently surpassed 100 million views on YouTube, and there's no doubt as to why: The adorably bubbly dance track features solo highlights of each member showing their cute, lovable sides—you'll definitely feel kilig watching it!

How lucky that I’m the person
Who will try his hard to protect you,
Where else to look for?

13. "U" (2006)

Originally a project group established by SM Entertainment, the release of "U" cemented the group’s permanent status. It was also Kyuhyun’s first single after debuting as the thirteenth and final member.

Cause I can't stop thinking about you girl
I'm going to make you mine
No I can't stop thinking about a girl
I want us to be together

12. "Bonamana" (2010)

A signature "SJ Funky" track, "Bonamana" was the group's fastest song to hit number one on the music charts, topping Music Bank after only a week! Fun fact: It was during "Bonamana" promotions that the infamous "Incheon Battle" between Leeteuk and Heechul took place!

Bounce to you, Bounce to you
My heart is beating so fast for you
To the point it can’t be caught, attracted to you
And it’s beating so fast that I can’t get you

11. "Lo Siento" (2018)

The group's first collaboration with a foreign artist, the single featuring Leslie Grace has Korean, English, AND Spanish lyrics, making it incredibly fun to (try to) sing along to. The dance moves to their second apologetic song (LOL!) are extremely catchy as well!

Continue reading below ↓

I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m not in a hurry
I’m sorry, I’m sorry, let’s take our time
If I kiss you today, tomorrow I’ll go, I’m not crazy for you

10. "It's You" (2009)

Also known to fans as "Norago," the repetitive vocal ad-libs and heavy, head-bopping beat only add to the song's recall. The song was also the last release featuring all of the original thirteen Super Junior members.

[It’s you]
I don’t need any words,
it’s just you [it’s you]
You say it’s too late,
but for me, it’s just you [it’s you]

9. "Mr. Simple" (2011)

It's impossible to resist singing the shout-along chorus of "Mr. Simple," and many an ELF have danced along to the simple (for Super Junior) choreo. Because of its incredible popularity, the song gave Suju their biggest number of music show wins (11!), while fans and members alike tearfully bid goodbye to Heechul in the middle of promotions due to his military enlistment.

Look Mr. Simple, Simple
You’re great the way you are
Look Miss Simple, Simple
You’re beautiful the way you are

8. "Mamacita" (2014)

Super Junior's first foray into a more Latin-inspired sound was a huge success for their comeback after a 2-year hiatus (members Leeteuk and Heechul had just fulfilled their mandatory military service). The group even filmed a "drama" version of their music video!

Why are you shutting your mouth right now?
Did you decide to just go with the flow?
Just say shh! Then everything will calm down
Everyone keeps nagging

7. "Superman" (2011)

"Superman" is not just a song, but an anthem. The track represents the hardships the group underwent, and is a message for all the haters out there that Super Junior will remain the last men standing—in fact, they'll be celebrating their 15th(!) debut anniversary on November 6, 2020. 

With the stars we’ve lost
We are thirteen stars
But we are not lonely
We have SM family and ELF

6. "Devil" (2015)

Released in celebration of SJ's 10th anniversary, it's the perfect combo of upbeat pop and an effortlessly cool vibe. "Devil" only gets better when performed live, because the members can't help but goof off during the section where they're supposed to copy each other's choreography.

I want you so bad,
Oh baby baby please don’t go
Everything, even kneeling before you
Feels so natural now

5. "Evanesce" (2014)

This track is definitely a fan-favorite. "Evanesce" highlights Suju's incredible vocal abilities, and Eunhyuk's dance solo only makes the message of love lost more moving. E.L.F.s can't forget the hilarious onstage mistakes though—take a look at this instance, when the members forgot to step back onto the moving platform!

Don’t know why (Don’t know why)
Tell me why (Tell me why)
Why does love end?
Why are things (Why are things)
That will disappear (That will disappear)
So beautiful?

4. "Marry U" (2009)

Continue reading below ↓

This is a favorite for E.L.F.s to sing along to at concerts. Featuring sweet lyrics containing both a confession and a proposal, Super Junior's fans used "Marry U" as part of a fan project during the first Super Show concert tour, making several members cry from the emotional moment.

I'll be at your side for a lifetime, I do
Loving you, I do
Even while it snows and rains I'll cherish you, I do
I'll protect you, my love 

3. "Black Suit" (2017)

The song that brought in countless new E.L.F.s to the fandom, "Black Suit" was the lead single for Suju's comeback shortly after Eunhyuk, Donghae, and Siwon's discharge from the military. Fun fact: The song *almost* didn't get chosen as the album's title track—in an episode of SJ Returns, it turns out "Scene Stealer" lost by one vote!

You make me fall for you with just a hand gesture
Feels like my heart will explode, mood
A black suit to steal this night

2. "One More Chance" (2017)

A pre-release track from their eighth Korean studio album Play, "One More Chance" was written and composed by Donghae (with the accompanying rap lyrics written by Eunhyuk). The message of the song is incredibly heartfelt, and we can't help but keep our fingers crossed for another emotional ballad to be included in Super Junior's 15th anniversary comeback album.

Don’t go away like the rain
Again today, I’m drenched
And in the wet traces, I’m looking for you

1. "Sorry, Sorry" (2009)

Their most iconic track and one of the most well-known K-pop songs EVER, it's almost like a rite of passage for younger idol groups to do a dance cover of "Sorry, Sorry" at least once in their careers. It's also a popular choice for trainee survival groups to take on: Check out Produce 101 season 2's version

Sorry sorry sorry sorry
I I I first
For you for you for you I fell
Fell fell fallen baby
