[KPOP]: That Time Fans Were So Pissed They Bought Company Shares

2020.07.22 20:21 vera-m [KPOP]: That Time Fans Were So Pissed They Bought Company Shares

These days when fans get annoyed or frustrated with their favourite musical artist, they'll most likely resort to online discourse, or start a couple hashtags venting their frustration. If things get really messy, they'll take more extreme measures such as boycotting. But what about the time when fans resorted to buying shares of the company that managed their favourite artist in an attempt to get their way?
Let's talk about Super Junior.
It's 2005, and after the astronomical success of TVXQ, SM Entertainment (who were arguably the largest/wealthiest South Korean idol producing company at the time) wanted to replicate TVXQ. Super Junior debuts, entering the South Korean music industry as a twelve member group, instantly distinguishing them from every other group at the time (which usually had around five members). In addition to their eye-catching number of members, Super Junior has another gimmick up their sleeve.
Instead of having a fixed member lineup, SM's founder Lee Soo Man was inspired by Japanese girl group Morning Musume, and employed a similar rotational member concept to Super Junior. They were the first K-pop group to ever employ a strategy like Morning Musume's. The idea was that Super Junior would replace selected members each year, in an attempt to keep the lineup fresh, young, and well-rounded. So the group actually debuted as "Super Junior 05", the number affixed at the end set to change with each passing year. On paper, it sounds like an interesting idea. In reality, it's a complete failure.
In direct contrast to the Western music industry, K-pop isn't just selling you music: it's selling you an experience. The parasocial relationship between idols and their fan bases rivals even the most devout followers of any Western artist or boy group. South Korean entertainment companies directly profit off luring fans into the fantasy of believing they are in a relationship with their favourite idols, which produces crazed stalker fans or fans vehemently against the idea of their idols ever pursuing romantic relationships (we'll get to that later). Fans become incredibly attached to their favourite idol, so the idea of replacing idols within a group now sounds a lot more ludicrous.
Super Junior 05 debut with leader Leeteuk, Heechul, Han Geng, Yesung, Kangin, Shindong, Sungmin, Eunhyuk, Siwon, Donghae, Ryeowook, and youngest member Kibum. After a year, SM decide to abandon the rotational member concept with the addition of thirteenth member Kyuhyun. They completely drop the number suffix, and promote as just Super Junior. By this point, Super Junior have have garnered an impressive fan base, following in the footsteps of their labelmates TVXQ to top charts, break records, and most importantly, make a load of money for SM. ELF (Super Junior's fanbase) are incredibly devoted and fanatic.
It's at this time that SM decide to start branching out, and introduce the concept of a subunit to the K-pop industry. Their first subunit, Super Junior-KRY strictly releases ballad music, and their second subunit Super Junior-T are a trot singing group (hence the "T"). It's also at this time that SM realizes the untapped potential of the Chinese music market. Super Junior already has Chinese member Han Geng (who's notably the first foreign K-pop idol), so it seems natural to branch out into promoting in China.
Enter Zhoumi and Henry Lau.
In 2007, SM announces the plan to debut the first Chinese subunit in the industry, Super Junior-M ("M" for Mandarin). Alongside their debut, two new Chinese members will be added to the group: Zhoumi and Henry.
Fans do not take this news well, and are enraged.
Despite Super Junior abandoning the rotational member concept nearly a year ago, fans speculate that the addition of Zhoumi and Henry must equate to the two of them replacing existing members. The situation escalates to thousands of fans protesting outside of SM's building with signs saying "13 + or – 1 = 0", threatening to no longer support the group if members were removed or added. To them, altering Super Junior's current lineup was an act of sacrilege. At live performances before Super Junior-M's debut, fans chant insults against Henry during his solo parts, or stay silent during his parts only to resume cheering after he finished.
SM don't exactly care. They are going to debut Super Junior-M with its intended lineup.
If protesting won't work, surely taking legal action will. Fans decide to gain authority and legal power by purchasing 58,206 stocks, equating to nearly 0.3% of SM's entire stock. They then release a statement outlining they will do everything in their power to prevent SM from altering Super Junior's member lineup.
SM unfazed, power forward, and Super Junior-M debut in 2008. The hate towards Zhoumi and Henry however, does not stall. Most infamously at a concert in Shanghai in 2010, fans start shouting insults at Zhoumi and Henry, protesting against them. The situation escalates to the two members in tears, and during the final bow, the chants are so loud and intense that fellow member Siwon has to shout into a mic telling the fans to shut up, instantly silencing a crowd of nearly 20,000 fans.
To this day, Zhoumi and Henry have never been considered members of Super Junior, only Super Junior-M. The only promotional activities and musical released they've participated in have been with Super Junior-M. In a way, the fans were able to get their way. However, I get some happiness knowing that Super Junior-M went onto becoming Super Junior's best selling subunit, (paving the way for future Chinese subunits such as EXO-M and WayV) and that there were equally many fans that to this day continue to love and support Zhoumi and Henry. Sales records in no way nullify the horrific treatment Zhoumi and Henry faced, but does laugh in the faces of so-called "fans" who thought purchasing shares in SM would turn the tides in their favour.
Henry left SM in 2018 to pursue his solo music career, though Zhoumi is still with the company. Super Junior-M have been inactive since 2014.
Other "Interesting" Fan Discourse:
And that's all! Similar to my TVXQ post, I have to emphasize that Super Junior's international fandom is generally quite respectful and laid back. The Korean fanbase is messier, but once again, not every Korean fan is foaming at the mouth with anger towards Zhoumi/Henry/Sungmin. Super Junior hold a place near and dear to my heart, and I highly suggest checking out their music if you're into 2nd gen K-pop music, or just want a trip down nostalgia lane. Thank you for reading ☆

2020.05.04 18:05 Mel0n_Collie [OC] What if every world cup team had the same population? - Group F

Mayday! Mayday! A new group is upon us! Welcome back to this alternative world cup as we uncover the sixth group of eight in this fascinating made-up tournament, well, fascinating to me atleast.
My writing was briefly interrupted this morning as amidst all this major historical event malarkey, the UK sneakily changed the May bank holiday to friday leading me to run down the road in my dressing gown for a bin man I didn’t expect. Artists interpretation
I’ve since wiped the stale beer and bin juice off of myself to bring you what was collectively the most laborious group to research, but before I excite you too much, here are the groups so far
Group A, Group B, Group C, Group D, Group E
With this installment falling on May the fourth, you may want to read them in the correct order of D, E, F, A, B, C. Today’s edition begins however, with the revenge of the Sikh’s.
Punjab
3 Indian States (Punjab, Haryana, Rajastan), 1 Pakistani Province (Punjab)
Population (millions): 231.65
From the region that brought you Mundian To Bach Ke via Coventry, we bring you one of the better teams of a very bad Indian bunch.
Punjab is a Persian word meaning land of five rivers, unfortunately as far as the Football is concerned, the region tends to meander more than it flows.
The Pakistani half of the region hogs nine of 16 Pakistan Premier League clubs, denoting sporting superiority to the province's peers, of whom produced zero players for Greater Khorosan’s shortlist.
The ‘Pak Shaheen’ send an octet of failed cricketers to a side where the non-punjabi states of Haryana and Rajastan are never-presents

Gurpreet Singh Sandhu is India’s number one between the sticks, and statistically exceeds the credentials of his teammates here. In September of last year Singh made an incredible 20 saves against Qatar in a completely unexpected 0-0 draw, this high-profile MOTM performance combined with Winning the ISL in 2019 earned him the Golden Glove award and the Arjuna Award for special achievement in Indian sport.
The best offering from west of the border is young fullback Ali Uzair, unfortunately that’s more of an emphasis on the lack of quality from Pakistan.
This uninspiring side has more ammature level ‘Singh’ing than a Saturday night reality show, this side has little to no X factor, it transpires that Punjab does NOT have talent.
West Indonisia & Singapore
25 most westernly Indonesian states, Singapore
Population (millions): 247.71
Aside from the aforementioned Pakistan, Indonesia is the closest sovereign nation to the target population, slightly over hitting the mark, Australia and co. nicked the West of this astronomical archipelago.
Much like many of the south-eastern countries, football is arguably Indonesia’s most popular sport along with Badminton. Playing under the historical pseudonym of the Dutch East-Indies, the Garuda were the first Asian team to participate in the World Cup in 1938, with a 6-0 defeat to Hungary their only appearance to date in the tournament.
With a substantial talent pool and a love for the game, it is frustrating that they have yet to produce a player that has made any sort of impact on the game. The man attempting to remedy that is obviously… Dennis Wise? Yes, bizarrely in what in one of the best Footballing series to come out of Youtube ‘The Search for Indonesia’s first wonderkid’ follows ‘Garuda Select’, a squad of 16/17 year old Indonesians scouted and managed by former England teammates Dennis Wise and Des Walker who give them the opportunity of spending a year in the English development system. Devised by the Indonesian FA, It’s a fascinating and unique look at the measures taken to develop the game.
A game between Garuda Select and Walsall under-17 was viewed live in Indonesia by 4.5 million people, personifying an incomparable desperation for a football team to be proud of. The now 18 year old striker Bagus Kahfi looks to be the valedictorian of the class of 2020, commanding rumours of a groundbreaking English club contract.
For now the only thing the current Indonesia squad has in common with England is that they seem adverse to being in Europe. The metropolitan super-city of Singapore joins on to the side, providing a spine of players to the squad.

While Bagus doesn’t quite have the mileage to make the squad yet, sophomore Egy Maulana could be just as prosperous. The teenager has begun making appearances in the Polish Ekstraklasa scoring 13 goals in 16 games for the reserve side.
Native league champions Bali United are responsible for almost a quarter of the squad; formed in 2015, this favourable away day is already banging on the door of Champions league qualification.
Belgian bad boy Radja Nainggolan is half-Indonesian and idolised for being so. Despite already commanding 30 caps for ‘Les Diables Rouges’ before being outcast by Roberto Martinez, if there was some way for the midfielder to change allegiances, the manager would probably let him light up a cigarette in the centre-circle if he wanted to.
Far East and WCUS
Japan, South Korea,10 US States (Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Hawaii, Alaska)
Population (millions): 241.08
By far the most strained geographical combination, this franken-side is of intermediate quality but got an absolute touch in the draw, putting them as favourites.
From K-pop to California, this region could have simply been named ‘pop-culture land’, although the star quality is monopolised by a smiley Spurs striker who is projecting a career that may well already crown him Asia’s greatest ever export.
Japan and South Korea are Asia’s most tenacious territories when it comes to World Cup qualification. A debut appearance in 1998 for the Samurai Blue sparked a sensational start to the 21st century, qualifying for the last six iterations of the tournament reaching the knockout stages on three occasions, winning the Asian Cup thrice during this spell. The talismanic talents of Cha Bum and Park Ji Sung dominate the saga of South Korea’s qualification streak that spans back to 1986, although bizarrely continental bragging rights have evaded them for 60 years.
The west coast of the United States buffers the region's populous power, hoping tactics won’t get lost in translation, four yanks make their way East.

Averages/Totals 66 €237.78 27.04
The affiliate clubs of this team read like an interrailing checklist; the side sprinkles across a predominantly European list of heavy-to-welter-weight clubs.
Stefan Frei likely tends the goal despite hailing from Germany, while in front of him are the familiar faces of Yoshida and Sakai who both have an eye for goal.
Takashi Inui was the star of a recent World Cup campaign that cruelly resulted in Japan almost reaching the quarter finals, losing to Belgium after being 2-0 up in one of the year's most enthralling matches. The forward thinking midfielder may play parallel to Liverpool’s newest acquisition Minamino who is finding his feet at the European champions.
The region has some explosive young talent in the way of Valencia’s Kangin Lee, the 19 year old just made the cut as Barcelona’s Takeufa Kubo is one year his junior but has a higher ceiling for future stardom, but for now his talent’s are still as raw as a California sushi roll.
I can’t finish this section without nodding to the almost boringly impressive ability of Heung-Min Song. A Champions League finalist and the first Asian player to score 50 Premier League goals, ‘Sonaldo’ is the Salah of South Korea and the unofficial eighth member of BTS, his world-class abilities will undoubtedly see him have a lot of fun in this group.
East Africa
Tunisia, Libya, Sudan, South Sudan, Chad, CAR, Ethiopia, Somalia, Eritrea, Djibouti, Niger
Population (millions): 254.59
The poorest African region in more ways than one, it is completely forgivable that this squad doesn’t compete with their continental counterparts.
The inclusion of Tunisia is greatly beneficial as the Magreb moguls have five qualifications to their name, combine that with the rest of the region and East Africa has… five qualifications to their name.
Ethiopia features less in this squad than it’s 109 million population demands. The national team won a home Cup of Nations in 1962 but have qualified just once in the last 37 years.
Troubled nation Somalia does not feature in this squad, probably because the players keep insisting they are the captain.

The squads greatest chance of a high finish rests in the hands of Midfield pair Wahbi Khazri and Geoffrey Kondogbia; The Tunisian showed flashes of brilliance for an infamously poor Sunderland side, while the holding midfielder from CAR always has plenty in the tank.
Chad’s only representative Casimir Ninga can sneak through defenses unnoticed on his day but is an archetypal pacey dribbler with end product to be desired.
Henok Goitom should lead the line, the 35 year old striker was born in Sweden but is the offspring of two Eritrean asylum seekers. In 2008-09 Goitom reached double figures in La Liga but wasn’t to make his international debut until six years later, he now captains the red sea boys but the multigenerational talent’s best years are behind him, and having never qualified for AFCON, it might be an opportunity spurned.
The back line has the potential to be all Tunisian, a side that conceded eight goals in three games in russia, albeit presumably less than Djibouti would have.
Thanks again for reading, tomorrow we’ll have a region that would make Trump spit out his disinfectant , and the land of 9 million bicycles.

2019.04.04 17:00 alleybetwixt The Who's Who of Burning Molka: A comprehensive list of the names involved

BURNING MOLKA ARCHIVE WIKI will contain all future updates for this listing.
This post was last updated on 190915 at 6:55PM KST
This is a compiled list of all the significant figures involved in the Burning Molka scandals. It is our attempt to make an easier-to-read breakdown that focuses on the Who's Who of these cases and what they did.

⚠ TRIGGER WARNING: This will be the only warning in this post. The contents of many of these stories and notes may be triggering. If you are sensitive to straightforward mentions of criminal activity, especially regarding sexual assault/rape, do not continue. ⚠

There are two primary threads to follow in this story. One thread is Burning Sun and the general club culture of Gangnam. This includes illegal activities (drug use and dealing, gambling, entry of minors, sexual assault, illegal hidden cameras set up to film sexual abuse, tax evasion, embezzlement) and police colluding to cover up and/or participate in these activities. The other is the celebrity members of chatrooms sharing molka (illegally filmed videos, especially sexually exploitative in nature). They are intertwined as they involve some of the same people.
The ever-growing web of these stories are happening concurrently with a widespread spy-cam (molka) epidemic (hidden cameras in hotel rooms, public restrooms, etc) as well as a feminist movement (#MeToo) where awareness is being raised of the patriarchal culture of South Korea, which has facilitated sexual harassment and abuse of women as a 'norm'.
Throughout all cases, there are authority figures (police, politicians, celebrities, chaebols) committing crimes. Due to their wealth, power, and the entrenched corruption of those that could bring them justice--they get away with it.
(190503 Expansion) The two primary threads of Burning Sun and molka-sharing chatrooms have split into a few further threads through the investigations. As it stands now, there are essentially five threads.
CedarBough T. Saeji wrote an excellent piece introducing these threads and the ways they are connected within the larger cultural context of South Korea. Highly recommended reading!

  • K: same as T
  • Senior Police Officer Superintendent Yoon: Booked for violating the Improper Solicitation and Graft Act for taking bribes/gifts in the form of BIGBANG concert tickets (from Seungri), a meal and a golf game (from Yoo In Suk). Removed from his position. Fowarded to prosecution for obstructing rights when providing confidential police information to Yoo In Suk about possible suspicious activity at Monkey Museum. Yoon was cleared of charges regarding receiving bribes from Seungri and Yoo In Suk because the total amount ($2,250) was less than the threshold ($2,518) of the Improper Solicitation and Graft Act. But he will pay a fine and the Inspection Department will determine how he should be disciplined.
  • Senior Inspectors A and B: Both forwarded to prosecution. 'A' for helping to convey confidential information to Superintendent Yoon and 'B' for violating confidentiality for revealing police information.

YG Ent. supposedly learned of this in February and fired Mr. Ji. This is still being investigated. It's not known if Mr. Ji was only getting salary from Burning Sun or he had double salary from both.
  • Yang Hyun Suk (Founder of YG Entertainment):
    • MBC's program 'Straight' aired with an in-depth report claiming that YG Entertainment's CEO Yang Hyun Suk mediated prostitution for foreign investors. A dinner he hosted in 2014 was specified where 8 men were being entertained. 25 women were present, allegedly most of which were prostitutes. Most of the guests and women moved on to Yang Hyun Suk's club NB, where later the investors selected from the women to be entertained privately. YG Entertainment made a statment confirming Yang Hyun Suk was at the dinner, but denied he mediated prostitution for VIPs. (Allegedly, Hwang Hana was also present at the dinner.)
    • JTBC's 'Spotlight' program included information about a staff member at YG Entertainment keeping a drug kit to test company artists for drugs so that they could take proactive steps to cover it up if anyone tested positive. Yang Hyun Suk responded to the program by stating he was directly involved in routinely monitoring the artists with drug tests himself every two months. He explained that, following G-Dragon's case, he took responsibility with testing as a preventative measure to keep artists fearful of using drugs at all. Yang Hyun Suk also claimed B.I's drug test had been negative.
    • Resigned from position in YG Entertainment as a result of his involvement in multiple scandals.
    • Booked for suspicions of prostitution mediation based on expense reports that indicated possible sexual services during the 2014 Europe trip (190717). The investigations into prostitution are ongoing.
  • Yang Min Suk (CEO of YG Entertainment/brother of Yang Hyun Suk): Resigned as CEO as a result of his brother's involvement in multiple scandals.
  • PSY: Called up for questioning on the 23rd regarding the prostitution mediation Yang Hyun Suk is suspected of providing for Jho Low and another Southeast Asian investor in July of 2014. The questioning reportedly took approximately 9 hours. Both PSY and Madam Jung's testimonies are being collected as a part of the ongoing investigation into Yang Hyun Suk's case.

Victims speaking out:

  • Informant/whistleblower: Person (woman?) who gave Kakaotalk chats to Lawyer Bang Jeong Hyun.
  • Kim Sang Kyo (non-celebrity):
    • Filed the original assault case at Burning Sun, which triggered all of the media attention and investigations of Gangnam clubs.
    • Claimed he saw a woman being sexually harassed. Sought a security guard for help and then was beaten by Mr. Jang and security guards. When police came, they also beat him. He was arrested and beaten again at the police station.
    • Wrote about the incident on Bobaedream (online community) and sent a petition to the Blue House about it. Later requested anyone harmed at Burning Sun to contact him through Instagram. Posted multiple stories of victims sharing what happened to them (sexually assaulted, drugged with GHB).
    • Three women accused him of harassment at Burning Sun (includes Anna and a 'Kim', who were later revealed to have ties to Burning Sun staff.)
    • (Kim Sang Kyo Statement and background)
    • Forwarded to prosecution on charges of assault, interference with business, and sexual harassment based on testimonies and CCTV footage.
  • A (informant): Two new chatrooms were discovered due to informant 'A, from her boyfriend, Mr. Kim. Participants of one include actors Shin and Han and a model Jung. The other includes the son of a former Samsung executive, a merchandiser for club Arena, and an entertainer. It contains more than 100 videos and pictures of shared molka and pornographic content. (Note: This is not the same 'A' as the 'A' below and we do not know if this 'Mr. Kim' is the same as any other Kim mentioned in this list.)
  • A (friends with members of the group chatrooms):
    • Testified she was sexually assaulted by five members of the group chatrooms. This includes Jung Joon Young and Choi Jong Hoon (may also include Heo and Mr. Kim (Burning Sun)).
    • 'A' contacted lawyer Bang Jeong Hyun when seeing everything in the news and suspected she may have been assaulted while she was part of the chatroom associated friend group.
    • Corroborating the date of her suspected assault with Bang Jeong Hyun and the chat logs resulted in seeing conversations, a voice recording, and six photos that indeed indicated she had been sexually assaulted while unconscious.
    • 'A' will file a lawsuit against those who assaulted her and an investigation will follow.
  • B: Last week, 'B' filed a complaint that Mr. Kim (Burning Sun employee) filmed Kwon (SNSD Yuri's brother) raping 'B' and shared the video to the chatroom. Her statement matches the content of the chat logs.
  • Lee: Came forward in relation to one of the first chatlogs that was made public. A 2016 gathering overseas included Seungri, Roy Kim, Mr. Kim, Yoo In Suk, and a group of women who had been invited. Lee was friends with one of the women. They all had dinner together, but Lee lost consciousness. She was left to rest in another room. She was found later in a different room, undressed, and her friends said it was extremely difficult to rouse her from sleep. Her testimony aligns with the content of the chat where Mr. Kim had filmed as he assaulted her and shared it with the other members. Lee's uncharacteristic loss of consciousness will also be further investigated for the possibility she was drugged at the party.
  • Multiple women came forward regarding a gathering at a resort in Hongcheon (January 2016). Five men were involved, which included Jung Joong Young, Choi Jong Hoon, and Mr. Kim (Burning Sun). Seungri did not attend but responded to chat conversations about what happened there. The women claim they lost consciousness after being served alcohol by the men. Again, the chatlogs and media shared indicate the women were sexually assaulted and recorded.
  • Seven women have come forward so far to file complaints in regards to being sexually assaulted by members of the Jung Joon Young chatrooms. The ones we know about in detail are listed above.
  • Informant Jeon (guard at Burning Sun):
    • Came forward with information about police being paid off during club inspections long before this whole scandal took off. Drugs were openly used in Burning Sun. He recalled an unconscious woman who his team was supposed to remove from the club, but looked like she had been drugged when he tried to wake her. The leader of Jeon's guard team was instructed to keep police out of the club.
    • Jeon was present when Kim Sang Kyo was assaulted. When Sang Kyo publicly stated he was seeking information about the club, Jeon contacted him, despite being threatened by his team leader.
    • Claimed he never saw sexual crimes himself, but that servers and guards would say he should go watch the CCTV for a (VIP?) room, and he assumed there were sex acts happening. He said it was almost always celebrities or chaebols who booked that room.
  • Another victim of Kim Hak Eui and Yoon Jung Cheon who was present at the Wonju Villa in 2008 came forward. Choi has medical and psychiatric treatment records that may be used to apply charges to the men. Her testimony was provided back in 2013, but she was never called in for further questioning/investigation at the time, further indicating the investigation was not handled responsibly. (The two victims more recently associated with this case are Choi and Lee/A.)

Indirect connections:

  • Seo Hyun Deok (nephew of Choi Soon Shil): VIP guest at Burning Sun. Confirmed first assailant against Kim Sang Kyo. Grabbed him by the hair. Forwarded to prosecution on charges of assault..
  • Kim Hak Eui (Former Vice Justice Minister: (Article linking KHE with multiple sex abuse cases). Arrested. There is not sufficient evidence to charge Kim Hak Eui specifically on sexual assault (he has other charges pending still). Yoon Jung Cheon had a 'mental damage' charge applied for assaulting 'Lee/A' three times and coercing her to be sexually involved with Kim Hak Eui.
  • Yoon Jung Cheon (building contractor):
    • Hosted sex parties at his villa in Wonju, where Kim Hak Eui is suspected to have drugged and raped women (between 2006-2007). With investigations re-opened and widened surrounded Kim, Yoon Jung Cheon was booked for fraud and misappropriating funds while head of a construction firm between November 2017 and May 2018.
    • Was transferred to Seoul Eastern District Prosecutor's Office. Prosecution is determining if they want to seek an arrest warrant for Yoon.
    • Arrested.
    • The Past Affairs Committee called for an investigation of the relationship between Yoon Jung Cheon and high-ranking prosecuters regarding bribery and unfair treatment (ex-Attorney General Han Sang Dae, ex-official Yoon Gap Geun, and ex-assistant prosecutor general Park). There is also the possibility that more videos exist aside from the well-known 'Kim Hak Eui video' taken by Yoon Jung Cheon, which he may have used to habitually blackmail five more victims.
  • SBS reported on Businessman Choi, who is being investigation for real estate fraud/embezzlement and involvement with Kim Hak Eui. Choi's two sons are the 2nd largest stockholders of Choi's company and are suspected of participating in the fraud. One son is the vocalist of JANNABI (a band). Choi claims his sons were never involved in management of the company
  • President Moon Jae In issued emergency orders to thoroughly investigate the scandals that have surfaced: Burning Sun, Jang Ja Yeon (actress who took her own life that was sexually abused, as facilitated by her agency), and Kim Hak Eui (former justice minister who was accused of taking sexual bribes, with at least one woman who did not consent). Their commonalities are in privileged individuals participating in criminal activity and sexual abuse while colluding with people in places of power (ie. police, politicians) to cover up and/or take part in said activities. Jang Ja Yeon's case was nearing the statute of limitations, but there was an official extension of two months to continue the investigation.
  • Shim Min Ji (Madame Shim): Founder and CEO of the luxury fashion brand L’inoui (Koreaboo article all about her connections to powerful figures and suspicious cases of suicide)

    • Instructed to send photos of 10 women to Yang Hyun Suk's friend. The friend paid her about $170,000 a week before the Europe trip, which may have been supplied by Jho Low. Yang Hyun Suk then personally gave Madam Jung directions on how to distribute the money to the women--half of the total to be divided between the women and the other half going to Madam Jung herself.
    • She decided to reveal this information on MBC's 'Straight' program after her frustration seeing Yang Hyun Suk claim he didn't know why Madam Jung brought the women for the trip when he was the one that gave the order.
    • Madam Jung has been questioned by police six times so far.
  • Hwang Hana:
    • Chaebol of Namyang Dairy Products (is also the ex-fiancée of Park Yoochun(JYJ)).
    • Arrested (190404). Trial will begin 190515.
    • Frequent visitor of Burning Sun. Drug-dealeuser, but has never been punished when caught due to preferential treatment from police (she may have bribed someone she used with, Cho/Jo, to take all the blame).
    • Friends with Choi Jong Hoon, Lee Moon Ho, Seungri, and Madam Lin.
    • May have distributed molka and used videos to threaten others/victims. A relative of Park Yoochun claimed Hana blackmailed him with nude photos of him she had taken while he slept.
    • Was known to host house-parties at high-class villas where wealthy friends would be invited to take drugs and 'play'. There are indications she provided drugs for her family and possibly for two employees in her father's company (or worked with them to attain drugs).
    • Indicted on additional charges of drug use. She was charged with using methamphetamine a total of 10 times, Her first trial will be on June 5th.
    • At her second hearing on June 19th she submitted a 14-page apology letter and admitted to all charges against her regarding use of methamphetamine except for one. She challenged a statement by Park Yoochun that they had used drugs together in March of this year (12th-13th). Hwang Hana claimed Park Yoochun took the drugs by himself. Her next hearing will be held on July 10th.
    • Was sentenced to 2 years probation and a fine of about $1,878 (2.2mil won). She was released from detention and made a public statement of apology, saying she would self-reflect. (190719)
  • Park Yoochun (JYJ, ex-TVXQ):
    • Ex-fiancé of Hwang Hana. While she was being questioned she claimed a celebrity friend coerced her into taking drugs. This friend was speculated to be Park Yoochun.
    • Police conducted a search and seizure of Park Yoochun's home, car, and phone, along with taking a hair sample for testing.
    • He tested positive for methamphetamine (Philopon) and confessed to seven(?) instances of using. Six times with Hwang Hana and once on his own since 2018.
    • His case was forwarded to prosecution on charges of violating the Narcotics Control Act (190503).
    • CJeS, Yoochun's agency, terminated his exclusive contract. Yoochun cancelled all schedules and retired from the industry.
    • Park Yoochun's lawyer, Kwon Chang Beom, resigned from work on his case.
    • Officially indicted with detention after admitting to charges of drug use. His first hearing has been scheduled for June 14th.
    • References to Yoochun have mostly been removed from JYJ's social media accounts.
    • At his first hearing, he admitted to all charges of using methamphetamine (Philopon), six times between September and October 2018, and also for purchasing 1.5 grams of the drug three times with Hwang Hana between February and March 2019. Prosecutors asked for Yoochun to serve an 18-month prison sentence and pay a fine of approximately $1,180. His final trial is set for July 2nd.
    • After 68 days of detainment during his trials, Yoochun was sentenced to 2 years of probation. If he is found to be involved with any further criminal activity during that time, he will serve 10 months in prison. He was also sentenced to pay a fine of about $1,200. (190702)
  • B.I (iKON): Dispatch revealed Kakaotalk messages from 2016 where he attempted to purchase marijuana and LSD from Han Seo Hee. Departed from iKON. YG Entertainment terminated his exclusive contract with the company. Suwon District Prosecutor's second deputy director, Lee Soo Kwon, explained that prosecution would not continue investigating B.I. since there was no evidence of criminal activity beyond the Kakaotalk conversation and Han Seo Hee testified that she never gave drugs to B.I.(190618).
  • Han Seo Hee (aka. Informant A): Exchanged Kakaotalk messages with B.I relating to purchasing drugs. She was questioned once, but was too emotional for the questioning to be productive. She testified she did not deliver drugs to B.I. Han Seo Hee also claimed she was coerced into changing her testimony under threat by Yang Hyun Suk. There are suspicions about timing with her August 2016 drug case. Police had requested a drug test on her, but before the results had even been recieved, her case was forwarded to prosecution. However, a source from the prosecution team claimed there were no records of this early transfer to prosecution. Additionally, Dispatch reported Han Seo Hee was encouraged by Yang Hyun Suk to go overseas to the US in December 2016 during the lead up to Big Bang's promotional period. In her opinion this was to prevent any risk to TOP in relation to his marijuana use. She was further told by the company to stay longer in the US, which she believes was timed intentionally to wait until TOP had enlisted in the military. These allegations were all denied by Yang Hyun Suk in an official statement.
  • Kangin departed from Super Junior, apologizing for the problems he had caused in an Instagram announcement. (190710)
  • Kim Hyung Jun (SS501): Accused of sexually assaulting a bar employee in 2010 (the alleged victim came foward when seeing this whole scandal in the news). He denied the allegations.
  • SHAUN (solo artist and member of band The Koxx): Enlisted for his military service. He hasn't been accused of anything, but he was a resident DJ at Burning Sun, so received negative attention for the association.
  • Choi Jung Hoon (JANNABI vocalist and son of Businessman Choi) posted a public letter via Instagram (Soompi's article w/full translation). He stated his father's business failed in 2012 and the singer had been financially independent ever since. He allowed his father to use his name/good credit score to help rebuild the business, but had nothing to do with it otherwise. He also said he knew his father and Kim Hak Eui were friends before he was born, but has no other association. JANNABI's various scheduled appearances are being cancelled following the reports about Choi Jung Hoon's father.
  • A PD for the variety show 2 Days & 1 Night (2D1N) was implicated in a chat where gambling was discussed with Jung Joon Young. Cha Tae Hyun and Kim Joon Ho (members of the 2D1N cast) were also in the chat and are revealed to have gambled while playing golf (gambling is illegal in South Korea). They have both stepped down from all programs they are involved with. 2D1N is now on indefinite hiatus and unavailable for replay. The investigation over the gambling came to an end with no charges filed against either of them (190524).
  • BC Holdings (in Hong Kong) was founded in 2016 by Seungri, Yoo In Suk, and Ryu (head of a consulting firm). It is believed to be a shell corporation. It was apparently operating on $8.8 million of investments, but the initial investment of these men was only about $35. Hong Kong authorities are investigating for tax evasion. The BC Holdings Korean office and Ryu's consulting firm are both located at the Yuri Holdings office.
  • Robert Holley (Lawyer, TV personality): Arrested for possession and use of methamphetamine. Megathread compilation for articles related to him

Further investigations:

  • While investigating Burning Sun, Police seized 58 phones.
  • Commissioner of the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency held a press conference and revealed the following in relation to the club scandals: 103 people have been booked, 13 people have been arrested/imprisoned. 53 people were booked for drug-related charges (15 booked and 4 arrested for using/distributing drugs at Burning Sun), 9 booked and 1 arrested for distributing GHB.
  • Another Gangnam club (not named) owned by Mr. Kang was found to have allowed minors to enter in December 2017. Broker Bae bribed two police officers, Lieutenant C/Yeom and Sergeant D, to cover it up. All three were booked. Lieutenant C/Yeom admitted to accepting bribes and was arrested. The arrest warrant request for Sergeant D was denied.
  • A program aired on MBC called 'Straight', which dug into some staggeringly evil stuff. A number of Gangnam clubs including Arena and Burning Sun set up officetel rooms for VVIP customers. There are indications of drug use, human trafficking, underage prostitution, rape, torture, illegal filming, and the presence of a professional team to destroy all evidence of what goes on there.
  • 17 women were booked for prostitution or prostitution mediation. It is believed they are all linked to Seungri's parties.
  • In a press conference on April 29th ('19), the SMPA Commissioner stated action had been taken against 23 suspects in relation to drug use, distribution of molka, and sexual assault. 7 people total were booked related to embezzlement at Burning Sun including: Lee and Choi (Jeonwon Enterprise chairman and CEO), Burning Sun's two CEOs, Yoo In Suk (Yuri Holdings), Ahn (Madam Lin's guide), and Seungri. The SMPA stated their next focus for investigation will be police corruption and collusion at Burning Sun and related cases.
  • From earlier reporting, there was a chatroom with 200 members, mostly reporters and directors, who were sharing media from all of these investigations--molka, pornographic material, and private information related to the sexual assault victims. SMPA's cyber crime team launched an investigation into this chatroom and its members, along with three more chatrooms that have similar material being shared.
  • Seoul Central District Prosecutor's Office performed a search and seizure on Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency (SMPA) relating to prostitution night club crack-downs. The investigation focuses on a 'Lieutenant Park' who allegedly took bribes in exchange for secret information and possibly running prostitution businesses. This is indirectly related to the Burning Sun c ases, but the raid was performed on the same day the Burning Sun investigations were wrapped up and findings announced. Many found the timing suspicious.
  • Investigations into possible collusion between Burning Sun and the local police (Yeoksam Patrol Division) were concluded. 72 cell phones of the officers, call histories of 706 club staff members, and bank records of 36 higher-ranked staff members were analyzed. It was determined there was not evidence of collusion between the club and police.
  • Regarding Jung Joon Young's old August 2016 sexual assault case, SMPA forwarded 'Lieutenant A' to prosecution for abandonment of duty and falsifying documents as well as accomplice 'Lawyer B' (Jung Joon Young's lawyer) for hiding evidence. Together, they are suspected to have hidden Jung Joon Young's cell phone at the time, claiming it disappeared, keeping the evidence of his molka videos a secret. Lieutenant A also attempted to coerce the digital forensics company to put on record that the cell phone data could not be recovered, which the company refused to do. When the company said the data recovery would take less than 24 hours, Lieutenant A told his superiors it would take 2-3 months. Lawyer B is also suspected of trying to reset Jung Joon Young's phone before handing it over to police in the more recent case, March 2019.
  • SMPA's Intellectual Crime Division stated that Seungri, Yoo In Suk, Madam Lin, and Burning Sun co-CEOs Lee Sung Hyun and Lee Moon Ho are suspected of embezzling more money from the club than previously reported ($451,000). The new total of embezzled funds is reported to be approximately $1.5 million, of which $850,000 was embezzled by Seungri, Yoo In Suk, and Madam Lin. The remaining funds were allegedly embezzled by the co-CEOs. There are no plans to request additional warrants against those involved based on the changed amount of embezzled funds. (190619)

People on the case:

  • Oh Hyuk Jin and Noh Seung Il (Choi Soon Sil case): Political journalist and assistant, reported Burning Sun.
  • Lawyer Bang Jeong Hyun: Received chats from informant. Sent to the Anti-Corruption and Civil Rights Commission (as opposed to the police). Shared them with Kang Kyung Yoon.
  • Kang Kyung Yoon: Reported Kakaotalk chats of Seungri and Jung Joon Young. Received chats from lawyer Bang (as requested by informant). Investigating Seungri since 2015. In communication with molka victims. (Watch her interview where she describes her process with the case)
  • Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency (SMPA)
  • Metropolitan/Provincial Special Detective Division

2019.03.12 12:24 life-finds-a-way Megathread: The Seungri Investigation + Future Articles and News

Hi,
Things are developing pretty quickly now and I'm sure we'll get more updates and information.
I want to highlight the great job \u\Dravvie and people on /kpop have done with their megathreads. I'll link them here for those who want to catch up, follow along, or track:

Timeline of Events

I also want to set a few boundaries for the time being:
  • New developments and news can be posted to the subreddit. If you are unsure about how trustworthy a site is or the validity of the claims, I'd rather you post it as a comment here and let us know that it's not official news.
  • Do not speculate about who else is involved or who may be involved. Do not throw out names and dates and places if it is not an official statement. If persons of interest are named, then you may post and discuss when it happens.
  • Please exercise judgment when you post tweets and twitter threads from here on out. Social media is a powerful tool, and it can provide a lot of context and news, but not every twitter thread is being checked for accuracy, etc.
thank you

2014.08.10 18:18 evenastoppedclock [Compilation] Information/Updates about Super Junior's upcoming album (member hints, fan theories, etc.)

For anyone who doesn't know, SJ usually does this before comebacks. Shindong drops tons of nearly-impossible-to-solve hints, ELFs do their best to try and guess, and the other members get in on it to mess with the members. And Donghae gets his phone confiscated so he doesn't spoil it all. In 2011, ELF guessed the name of the comeback correctly. In 2012, they guessed parts of the choreography too.
At this point, nothing official has been announced at all -- no release date, no teaser dates, nothing. MV filming is ending either today or tomorrow, most likely. However, SMTown Seoul is coming up really soon, so the boys won't be able to hide their new hairstyles, so we're waiting for some news.
Shindong's official hints:
Round 1:
  1. OOOOO
  2. 135.010 94.17
  3. this picture, with the caption 'find what's hidden in this shot'
Round 2:
  1. do cupin
  2. 눈비가사-진심
  3. 'servant's cup' + 'you guys all have mirrors at home right?? hehehe that’s enough of the hint kkk fighting!! Think a bit harder on it!! (trans. nksubs)
  4. -ㅣㅣㅣㅣ-ㅣ-ㅣㅣ-ㅣ-ㅣㅣ-ㅣ-ㅣ=ㅣ=ㅣ=ㅣ=
  5. S512K
  6. NEW HINT: 'dream 1 hint' (and apparently everyone's been on the wrong track)
Guesses:
Round 1:
  1. some five-letter word. Eunhyuk (iirc) posted a blurry photo on Instagram that looked like it had five letters. It looked like 'greed' to some people, which fueled the first theory. People have since used de-blurring programs on it and gotten an image that says [ALL] on it, so it's presumably a photo of the lyrics sheet near the chorus where they all sing.
  2. Not latitude/longitude coordinates. Searching for it got unrelated stuff and/or an IP address of a random restaurant in the US. Going by postal codes though, 135-101 is the code of Nonhyeon-dong in Seoul. At Nonhyeon-dong, Soul 94-17 there are a bunch of restaurants and one of them is called Masita (refers to the next hint). ALTERNATIVELY, Masita sounds like '맛있다' (tasty/delicious) or 마시다 (to drink) in Korean. Maybe the hint's something about food? Especially since everything has been pointing to food (restaurants, seaweed, so on). Also, Kyuhyun's fond of drinking (and food) so is it about that?
  3. It's an official promo shot of the Thai seaweed brand Masita that Kyuhyun endorses. If you look in the shot, Kyuhyun has a pack of Masita "hidden" in his jacket, which is why people thought the second hint was referring to the Masita restaurant.
Apparently nothing that (K-)ELF guessed was right.
Round 2:
  1. ACTUALLY GUESSED CORRECTLY. 'Do' (as in the verb to do) in Korean is '하다'. 'Cup' in Korean is '잔'. Phonetically transliterated, 'in' in Korean is '인'. Putting them together gets you 하다 잔인, and switching the order gets you 잔인하다 which means cruel. Shindong posted on SJ's DC Gallery again confirming that this was right, and clarifying the next hint.
  2. '진심' is the Korean name of SJ's All My Heart. '가사' means lyrics. In the lyrics of All My Heart, there's one line that contains both '눈' and '비': 앞에 네가 춰 슬픔 따윈 지워져, which translates to 'you shine front of me and erase all my sadness'. ALTERNATIVELY, '눈' can mean either eye or snow. '비' means rain, and the boys have been tweeting about the torrential rain in Seoul for a while. Is the comeback weather- or rain-related?
  3. Lots of random guesses relating to theory #2 (the Roman cup-bearer, Cupid, etc.). Cupid was incorrect as were paso double and Mexico.
  4. Multiple ideas (like theory #3 mentioned below), but nothing concrete.
  5. September 5th 12:00 K(ST) --> release date?
Theories:
  1. At the beginning, someone thought this blurry IG photo said 'greed'. That ended up with some fans coming up with an elaborate theory of the comeback being about the seven deadly sins (all the food could be related to Gluttony).
  2. Something to do with mythology? Multiple members had been tagging their SNS updates with stuff like #gotosleep #whyareyouallawake #youshouldbesleeping #goingtosleepnow. Is that a reference to the comeback? Morpheus is the god of sleep, and there are 10 main Roman/Greek gods. 10 gods = 10 members, plus the rest of the hints could be taken to be this way too. Every member is wearing a different color in their SS6 promotional video too.
  3. Shindong not participating in the comeback/being the filming director. Taking the “눈비가사-진심” hint, the line it may refer to could be saying 'I'm in front'. 'Servant's cup' could be saying Shindong's doing all the servant's work, and the mirror refers to him switching roles -- being on the other side of the camera. For the hint “-ㅣㅣㅣㅣ-ㅣ-ㅣㅣ-ㅣ-ㅣㅣ-ㅣ-ㅣ=ㅣ=ㅣ=ㅣ= ”, you can find 9 (ㅣis 1 and if you transpose: -4-1-2-1-2-1-1+1+1+1=9). LT+HC+KI+SD+SM+EH+SW+DH+RW+KH would make 10 members. But if Shindong's not here, it would be 9. (cr: fuelu @tumblr)
  4. The title has to do with 7. In the context of music, '집' means 'volume' in the sense that a group's third album is 3집, fourth is 4집 and so on. That would make this (their seventh album) 7집, but everybody involved (all the members, all the staff members/directors/choreographers/etc.) has been saying 'SJ7' instead of '7집'. Could the album be titled 7 or something similar? SM already did something like this with TVXQ's Tense album earlier this year, saying that part of the reason they chose to title it that is because 'tense' sounds like ten/tenth, and it was the tenth anniversary.
Extras:
Most of the boys have been updating on SNS and trolling hard (as usual).
  • Ryeowook posted this photo with the caption 'We're BACK ! Su!Per!Ju!Nior!'...but it's a shot from MV filming for their last comeback.
  • Eunhyuk posted this photo with the caption "here. #real #hint #7jib #SuJucomeback #justkidding #gotosleep". The photo is of fish bait or '떡밥', which can also mean hint in the way that Shindong's been using it.
  • Eunhyuk posted this with the caption 'a picture (taken) during mv filming! #IDidntSayItWas7jib #gotosleep'. Again, this is a shot from their last comeback.
  • Kangin posted this shot of his eye with the caption "my eye's bruised ㅎㅎ ah why do I keep waking up ㅜㅜ I should be sleeping a lot~~".
  • They've been posting random stuff (like videos of the rain in Seoul, shots of the edges of the filming monitors, stuff about how they're getting three hours of sleep, how they're still filming...and all being very careful to not show anything like their new hair colors or anything about what/where they're actually filming.
  • Rumors are saying that 1. they filmed at a coffee shop and 2. this may be one of the first kpop MVs that's filmed (at least partly) underwater.
The real takeaway from all of this:
  1. Super Junior is again doing a better job of promoting themselves than SM (which has basically been the case for a few years now). Shindong is single-handedly not only keeping the interest level high for this comeback, but bringing it to a fevered pitch -- and nothing about the comeback itself has even started.
  2. ELFs are still around, and we're thirsty as fuck. Over two years between comebacks has raised the anticipation to unbelievable levels. (SJ/ELF have trended worldwide four times in the last two-three days and again -- nothing about the comeback has even started!)
And inb4 ELF being delusional about the concepts -- we know very well that the odds of any of these concept guesses being right are unthinkably slim. That doesn't make it any less exciting to try guessing, especially when the members keep consistently replying to our guesses. It's all good fun.

2013.12.03 00:34 evenastoppedclock Round-Up: Super Junior in 2013

This is going to be a really long post, but I'll try to break it up as much as I can. It obviously won't go into much detail at all unless requested, and I certainly have gaps in my knowledge (especially with the members I follow less closely), but I hope you guys like it!
Sections: releases, members (individual activities), SS5, Oxford University, 8th anniversary, and CFs.
If you bothered to click, please scroll down at least a little ;___;
Releases:
Super Junior
SJ-M
  • Break Down plus album
  • String of fanmeets
  • Multiple variety appearances
  • Notable performances of Break Down and Go on Korean music shows (Music Bank/M! Countdown, at least one more that I can't recall right now; there at least three performances, because the first was all Mandarin, second was half-and-half, and third (and on) were full Korean)
SJ-KRY
Donghae&Eunhyuk
Henry
This does not include OST releases by individual members.
Members:
Leeteuk - currently enlisted.
Heechul - was enlisted in public service due to prior injuries, hosted SungDong Cafe, was discharged. Upon returning, he made an Instagram and immediately posted tons of himself and his significant-something-or-other Gunhee. Cameo'd in The Heirs/Inheritors (drama with Lee Minho, Park Shinhye, Kim Woobin, Krystal, Minhyuk, etc.) and in a sunbae's music video (it's slipping my mind right now). Currently an MC on War of Words. Joined SS5 for the most recent few dates.
Han Geng - working on a couple of movies, including Transformers 4. I'm sure he's doing more, I just don't know what it is.
Yesung - participated in KRY activities and SS5 until his enlistment earlier this year.
Kangin - has been lying low for the most part, but recently began filming a drama.
Shindong - has still been hosting ShimShimTaPa.
Sungmin - continued DJing at SJ's Kiss The Radio with Ryeowook for the first ~half of the year before leaving due to time constraints, participated in and was confused during SJ-M activities, has been very active in musicals this year (Summer Snow, reprisals of Jack The Ripper, about to start with The Three Musketeers).
Eunhyuk - participated in SJ-M activities and D&E activities, regular variety appearances (i.e., Barefoot Friends for some time).
Donghae - participated in SJ-M activities and D&E activities, opened a Grill5Taco branch in Seoul that he tweets about very frequently while using 'taco' as a verb....
Siwon - participated in SJ-M activities to a small extent (he was away on solo schedules more than he was actually present during promotions), worked on dramas.
Ryeowook - continued DJing at SJ's Kiss The Radio, participated in SJ-M and SJ-KRY activities, acted in the musical High School Musical, guested on varieties with Henry during Trap/1-4-3 promotions.
Kibum - ??? I'm not even being facetious here. All I know is that he held a fanmeet at some point in time and showed up to the SM Halloween party. I heard that he is slated to be in a (tvN?) drama soon.
Kyuhyun - participated in SJ-M and SJ-KRY activites, has been very active in musicals (reprisals of both The Three Musketeers and Catch Me If You Can, about to start on the musical adaptation of The Moon That Embraces The Sun), is a fixed/main MC for MBC's Radio Star, was a fixed/main MC for KBS's Mamma Mia until time conflicts (MM changed filming times that ended up conflicting with RS; he chose to stick with RS), participated in Henry's debut with Trap/live performances/variety guestings, currently has multiple duet stages in SMTown concerts (with Changmin and Seohyun), recently finished his degree in post-modern music after talking about essay-writing at 3am on weibo, intends to begin/has already started a post-graduate degree (both at Kyunghee University).
Henry - participated in SJ-M activities, was on Masterchef Korea Superstar (a cooking show that also had Fei on it, for the record), has a movie coming out soon (or it's already come out, I'm not sure), debuted with Trap, performed all three versions of it, performed at KCon, repackaged with 1-4-3, guested on variety shows to promote himself, currently filming a drama.
Zhou Mi - participated in SJ-M activities, was in a drama with f(x)'s Victoria, currently hosts a new radio show called Idols' True Colors with Jia and Fei that's basically an excuse for China-line to get together and be awesome together, had a scrapbook-travel-book published named 'Thai Perfect' about his experiences in Thailand. 'Thai Perfect' is a pun on SJ-M's last release before Break Down, '太完美'. '太完美' or 'tài wánměi' translates to 'too perfect' (or 'perfection', sometimes). Go puns!
SS5:
Notable performances include...
Speaking at Oxford University:
Super Junior was invited to speak at Oxford University. Kyuhyun, Eunhyuk, Kangin, and Siwon went to speak about their music, their individual activities, and Hallyu in general. They did have translators there, but the boys introduced themselves in English. They also played rock-paper-scissors a few times to decide speaking order. There are a lot of fancams up of the different speeches on YT, I haven't linked more than the opening.
8th anniversary:
Super Junior celebrated its 8th anniversary by going to Hawaii, both for a vacation and to shoot for the Memory in Hawaii photobook(s), also known as the time that Donghae and Eunhyuk hacked into SM's official Youtube channel to give us stuff like this, this, and this, the hula dance. The MIH is basically a whole project of SJ going around Hawaii, having fun, trying to pull planes around, learning how to surf, and so on.
CFs:
  • Super Junior: Kyochon Chicken (previously with Ailee; I can't remember if she's still on them); Lotte Duty Free, SPAO (with f(x))
  • SJ-M: Tony Moly
  • Kyuhyun, Siwon: SK Telecom LTE Nut (with Yoona, Seohyun)
I just remembered a few of these off the top of my head, this certainly isn't an exhaustive list.
Have some cosplay at Incheon Airport. Also at their official presscon for their 8th anniversary: they dressed as various people/characters.
