On November 6th, Super Junior held a celebratory mini-concert at the Korea University Gymnasiumwith their official fanclub, as a way to officially mark five successful years since their Inkigayo debut back in 2005.
Yet it wasn’t just Super Junior and their Korean fans who were celebrating this day – fans from all around the world came together to complete one of the most meaningful projects K-pop has ever witnessed, by compiling fan letters to Super Junior in30 different languages.
According to the founder and manager of this project, SuJu-Global-Elfs.com, the link to the project blog received over 5,000 views in 83 different countries. Amazingly, the site managed to attract this many visitors in the span of just 12 hours! The project managed to write fan letters in Korean, English, Arabic, Chinese, Russian, Japanese, Thai, Turkish, Norwegian, Czech, Bulgarian, Hungarian, Greek, Romanian, Polish, Dutch, Swedish, Portuguese, Spanish, French, Italian, German, Somali, Flipino/Tagalog, Indonesian, Malay, Vietnamese, Hindi, Tamil, and Mongolian.

Additionally, the Taiwanese ELFs decided to go a little bit further, as they completely covered a public bus with their congratulatory message to their idol group. The message reads, “Super Junior, 2010.11.6 Congratulations to Super Junior on their 5-year Anniversary.”
If that’s not enough, the executives and staff members of their entertainment company, SM Entertainment, also posted a meaningful message through a public newspaper advertisement to congratulate the group for their five years of success. They wrote,
Five years have passed since Super Junior was born
Five years ago today, they knew that they would ‘do well’
despite voices worrying whether if they really could.
