Thread Rules READ RULES BEFORE POSTING!!! General Soompi Forum Rules AND Music Forum Rules (where the Super Junior thread is located) apply. Please click on the links below to read the rules. General Soompi Forum Rules Music Forum Rules Pay particular attention to Music Forum Rules #7 & #9 (new). DO NOT put other artists' names under spoilers or in light font. The only thing that should be under spoilers or in light font is actual spoilers on things which most folks haven't been able to see yet. Hiding other artists' names doesn't make it invisible, just annoying. It is ok to mention other artists AS IT PERTAINS to Super Junior WITHOUT hiding their names, but don't use that as a springboard to discuss other artists and/or compare other artists to Super Junior. STAY ON TOPIC. This is a thread about Super Junior so talk about Super Junior. Super Junior members who are actors have their own threads. While general information, discussion, and pics in regards to their acting and/or dramas may be posted in the Super Junior thread, any in-depth discussion in plots and/or character analysis must be conducted in either their own acting threads or their drama threads. Just as before, if you wrote something in their acting threads that you think might be of interest to fans in the Super Junior thread, it's perfectly fine to state that you wrote something in their acting thread and post a link to it in this thread. Per moderator rules, Super Junior-M has its own thread. Any and all pics, discussion, posts, etc. regarding members of Super Junior as it pertains to their work in SJM must be posted and discussed in theSuper Junior-Mthread. If you want those in the SuJu thread to be aware of important news/updates regarding any of the Super Junior members that you posted in those threads, write a brief description of the news/updates and provide a link to the post in the SJM thread. For example, "I just posted news of member A doing this and that and the other in the SJM thread. You can check it out here ." N.B. In regards to Rule #1, #2, and #3, this does NOT mean you need to edit the MEMBERS' posts if they wrote something pertaining to other artists, their acting, or SJM activities in their cyworld, IPLE, or fan cafe entries. A translation of what they wrote can be posted in full, regardless of who or what they wrote about. However, this does NOT mean that those of us in the thread can go off on a tangent and start discussing other artists who aren't in Super Junior or their activities outside of Super Junior, using the member's post as a springboard. If you have a question about Super Junior, please free to ask... BUT ONLY AFTER backlogging and readingat least 3 full pageof the latest posts AND the first post. Most likely, the question that you want to ask has already been answered. It's selfish to think that your time is too valuable to bother to read the previous posts, but other people's time isn't valuable to answer a question that has already been answered. DO NOT ask for translations in the thread. Per General Soompi Thread Rules, if you are posting something in another language, YOU have to provide an English translation. You shouldn't be posting something in Korean and asking folks to translate it for you. Folks are posting translations as a courtesy to us all sojust be patient. If and when they are available, they'll be posted in the thread. DO NOT spam. There is no posting limit in this thread, HOWEVER use your posts wisely. That means, no posting to JUST to get your post count up. You don't have to write an essay every time you post (in fact, please don't LOL), but it has to be more than just a mere sentence or two AND it has to be about SUPER JUNIOR. Also, don't treat the thread as a personal IM or chatroom or as a source to spread rumors. Please read the details onwhat is and isn't spam. During LIVE EVENTS, use the chatroom specifically set up for Soompi SuJu fans at http://superjuniorbeyond13.chatango.com DO NOT feed the trolls. In public forums, there are always some who post purely to get a rise out of others... hate mongers, antis, those trying to pick fights, etc. DO NOT give them the attention that they are seeking by responding to their posts on the thread. If you feel you must give them a piece of your mind, PM them. If you find a post objectionable, use the "Report" button within their post to report them to the moderators. They might not be able to get to it right away (after all, they have a life too), but they will when they are available. Let the moderators do their job and let's keep the thread clean. MOST IMPORTANTLY, let's keep this thread an enjoyable and drama-free place. Whether you are a fan of only the main group, the various subgroups, or only one member, all that is asked of anyone in this thread is that wefollow the rulesand play nice with everyone. It's fine to have differing points of view and opinions and have civil discussions about them. Be respectful of other posters and their opinions... don't start fights. VIII. About Super Junior VII.

SM has FINALLY opened up Super Junior's Official Fanclub E.L.F. 2nd Generation memberships!!! StartingJuly 9 through 23 ONLY, you can go to http://fanclub.smtown.com and follow the instructions outlined there to join. Right now, it only seems to be open to Korean residents for a fee of 10,000 won ($7.86 USD as of 7/8/09) for a one year membership, but stay tuned for Global Membership information. I'm confused about the members' ages. Why do they always say that they are older than they really are? There are a couple of reasons for this. First of all, there is a difference between Korean age and Western age. In Korea, the moment you are born, you are considered to be 1 years old. Also, although Koreans celebrate birthdays on the date of their birth like Western folks, traditionally you don't actually turn a year older on your birthday, but rather everyone turns a year older on New Year's Day. The second reason is that those born in early parts of the year are considered the same age as those born the previous year due in part due to the Lunar Calendar, but mainly due to the Korean school year which starts in early spring. If you were born in the early part of a year, you would have been placed in the same grade level as those who were born the previous year and thus would have been classmates/friends. In SuJu, these are the groupings by the same age: 1) Eeteuk (83), Heechul (83), Hankyung (early 84) 2) Yesung (84), Kangin (early 85) 3) Shindong (85), Sungmin (early 86) 4) Eunhyuk (86), Donghae (86), Shiwon (early 87) 5) Ryeowook (87), Kibum (87), Kyuhyun (early 88) As you can see, it really isn't a matter of difference in age by days or months, but more their school grades. Eunhyuk is only 3 months younger than Sungmin, but he calls Sungmin "hyung" while Donghae is 6 months younger than Eunhyuk, but they are considered "friends." Shiwon whose real birthday is April 7, 1986 and whose registered birthday is February 10, 1987 is still in the same age group and thus "friends" with Eunhyuk and Donghae, regardless of which of the two birthdays you take into account. In Korea, the term "friend" does not necessarily only denote being close to someone, but rather being the same age as them. Thus, even though the members are very close to each other, most of them aren't considered "friends," but rather close "hyung/dongsaeng." What are the Super Junior living arrangements? When Super Junior was first formed, all members of Super Junior lived together. However, due to the sheer number of members, in early 2006, they moved into 2 separate dorms (apartments) in 2 separate buildings that were within 5 minutes of each other (they weren't able to get 2 apartments in the same building). At that time, Heechul, Kibum, Hankyung, and later Jay (Typhoon) from Trax when he returned from Japan lived in one dorm; The rest of the SuJu members (excluding Shiwon who moved back to his parents' house) lived in another. In the smaller dorm, Heechul got his own room, Hankyung shared a room with a manager, and Kibum shared his room with Jay. The bigger dorm's roommates changed often, but at one time or another most have probably been roommates of one another, especially since some rooms had 4 to a room. Then in September 2007, the leases on the Super Junior dorms ended and weren't renewed due to all the noisy fans who were disturbing the neighbors so they moved to 2 new dorms across the river, but this time more spacious dorms in the same building. 5 members of Super Junior live in one dorm on the 11th floor while 5 members live in another dorm on the 12th floor. 5 members on the 11th floor: Yesung and Ryeowook share the biggest room, Sungmin and Kyuhyun share a room, and Eunhyuk has his own room. The other room(s) are occupied by managers. 5 members on the 12th floor: Initially, Heechul and Eeteuk shared the biggest room, Donghae and Shindong shared a room, and Hankyung had his own room. But in early 2008, they switched rooms so that Heechul and Hankyung each had a room of his own while Eeteuk and Donghae shared a room and Shindong shared a room with a manager. Shiwon lives nearby with his parents. Kibum either live with family/relatives or by himself nearby. Kangin currently lives by himself nearby, but plans to move in with his parents at the end of July 2009 (Park Myung Soo's Date at 2PM 6/17/09). As of this past year, Ryeowook has moved to the 12th floor. VII. About Radio/TV Shows What does Bora mean? Bora (보라) is short for Bo-ee-neun Radio (보이는 라디오) which simply means viewable radio. How do I listen to/watch Super Junior Kiss The Radio (SuKiRa) online? Click here for step by step illustrated instructions. They will ask you to send in a copy of your Passport or other picture ID via fax or email (email@example.com) to verify your identity. IF you want a KBS user, then that's just what you have to do. There is no way of getting around it. After you fill out the application and send in the appropriate documentation, you should here from them soon. Confirmation time varies so don't worry if it takes more than week. SuKiRa airs Mondays through Sundays from 8pm to 10pm in Korean time. To get the correct times in your timezone, click here and choose your timezone location to get the correct time in your area. You can also wait until the show is over and download SuKiRa via Podcasts on Itunes or via http://clubbox.co.kr/loveleeteuk (look below in the FAQ on how to use clubbox) or listen online at http://www.kbs.co.kr/plan_table/channel/2fm/index.html (go to the date you want to listen to and click on the headphone icon next to 22:00 & 23:00 슈퍼주니어의 키스더라디오) Are you a Mac user? Unfortunately Mac users CAN'T listen to Sukira LIVE using the KBS website or gom player (unless you have a virtual PC program such as Parallel Desktop or Boot Camp running on your Mac). What you can do is listen to it when it becomes available on itunes (also works on a PC). Go to "Podcasts" and search for "슈퍼주니어의 Kiss the Radio"... subscribe. This should allow you to get the past Sukira episodes that are available and get future Sukira episodes. Click on "settings" to set up your preferences.Good news! As of October 28, 2008, Podcasts of SuKira seems to be working again. How do I listen to/watch Shindong's radio show Shimshimtapa (ShimShim) online? In order to listen/view radio or TV shows on MBC where both Shimshim and ChinChin airs, you need a membership at imbc.com. To join imbc, click here . Check the two "I agree" buttons and sign up as "Foreigner Living in Abroad." Everything is in English so you shouldn't have any problems signing up. BTW "Call Number" means phone number. You should sign up way before the actual date of the show that you want to listen to since they say that "Registration by overseas users may require additional time because of the validation process." Once you are a member of imbc, on the left hand top corner of the Shimshim webpage or ANY imbc.com webpage, you should see a button that says "ON-AIR." If you hover over it, you will see a dropdown menu. Click on "표준FM." OR if the show is Bora, you can scroll down to the bottom of the page where you will see and click on it. You will need to download Active X for the playercue program (only needs to be done once). Once the player starts, they will air a few minutes of commercials and buffer for a bit. After the commercials, if it's Bora you will see video, otherwise, the player will reduce and just the audio will air. Shimshimtapa airs Mondays through Sundays from 12:05am to 2am in Korean time. To get the correct times in your timezone, click here and choose your timezone location to get the correct time in your area. How do I watch Super Junior when they are on Korean TV? All you wanted to know and more can probably be found at KPOP JJANG . If you have questions about the methods listed there, please ask THERE, not in the SuJu thread. I'm planning on visiting Korea. How do I go see SuJu members in their radio shows and/or music programs? Here's a response by our thread memberx_freya_x: Location of Sukira: KBS Studios There is no specific date set aside for fans, you can see the boys during their radio broadcasts from outside whenever they are live on the air. Keep in mind that if the SuKiRa schedule says(Bora)next to it, it means that they are usually in the studio that day so that's the best chance to go see them. The ones that don't say (Bora) are pre-recorded. VII. About Logistics How do I convert Korean time to my timezone? WorldTimeServer is pre-set for Korean time so all you need to do in order to find correct time in your timezone is to set the time and date according to Korean time and click on "Submit." From there, select your timezone location from the dropdown menu. When I go onto some Super Junior related websites, all I get is a bunch of gibberish. What does that mean? That means your computer setting is disabled to read Korean. See below on how to read/write Korean characters. How can I read/write Korean characters on my computer? For detailed description of how to install and use Microsoft Korean IME for Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows 2000 and Windows 95/98/ME, click here . Are you a Mac user? Go to the Apple Menu and select 'System Preferences.' In the Personal section, choose 'International.' In Languages, drag '한글' right below "English" or if it's not one of the options, click on 'Edit List...' and select '한글' and click 'OK.' Next, click on the "Input Menu" tab, select "Hangul." Make note of the "Input menu shortcuts" and/or select "Show input menu in menu bar" to go back and forth between English and Korean. Then in your browser, go to the "View" tab, click on either "Text Encoding" (Safari) or "Character Encoding" (Firefox) and choose "Korean" (there are a few choices, but any one of them will do). Why don't all the features work on some of the Korean Super Junior websites I visit? This is most likely due to your web browser. Most Korean websites are configured for Internet Explorer on a PC so most Korean websites won't work to its full capacity on browsers such as Firefox or on Mac computers. Make sure you are using Internet Explore on a PC or a virtual PC program such as Parallel Desktop or Boot Camp on a Mac.
