POINTS

  • I heard that Leeteuk said this album was for the fans, not for winning? Aww.
  • … What a very interesting title haha…
  • Although Heechul has left for the military… This album marks the return of Kangin!
  • Men dancing and posing in strange rooms with eccentric outfits with no particular storyline… Typical Super Junior flavor.
  • From the teaser, I expected another mindless Super Junior catchy pop song… Sexy, Free & Single is a simple R&B track with a catchy chorus.

Kpop Review: Mr.Simple by Super Junior

Mr.Simple is the title track from Super Junior’s 5th album “Mr.Simple”.

POINTS

  • Bwara Mr.Simple Simple, super super catchy catchy catchy.
  • Sorta follows the previous 2 hits, music video wise (3 hits, if you count Perfection): full of the dance and solo shots, but no plot or story or anything. Oh yeah, this music video is definitely simple (pun absolutely intended).
  • Sorta follows Bonamana with a special dance break.
  • Wasn’t I complaining about Shindong and Sungmin getting no parts or lines? GUESS WHAT HAPPENS HERE!!! 😀
  • I’m so happy they danced with clothes on! (I prefer clothes on :P)
  • There’s this part with Leeteuk and Shindong… I don’t know if it’s rapping or talking…
  • I may be in the minority, but I love Eunhyuk’s singing voice.
  • What cute choreography!!!
  • Music video screenshots below! They’re not that good quality… But I put effort into it… ^^ hehe (I’m sorry if it slows your computer for any reason!)
