Ever since SM Entertainment added Zhou Mi and Henry to Super Junior’s sub-group Super Junior-M, there have been many unsatisfied feedback and even a petition from a group of fans known as Only-13’ers. Those are the fans that support only the original 13 members of Super Junior (including Kyuhyun, although it took them awhile to accept him as well). In their petition they aim for the company to limit Zhou Mi and Henry’s activities, to not make opening or closing remarks, to not use the official fan color of sapphire blue, and to be stopped from posting promotional messages, or information at all, on Super Junior’s official social networking accounts.
A while back it was member Heechul that stepped out to call the fans out on their rudeness, but in his absence Eunhyuk voiced out. After the group’s Super Show 5 performance in Singapore, Eunhyuk stepped out again into cheers, but that slowly faded as Eunhyuk began his speech.
“I came back to say something I hope every fan here listen together. Firstly, Zhou Mi and Henry are not official Super Junior members, but Zhou Mi and Henry are official members of Super Junior M. Henry and Zhou Mi as Super Junior M members are important, and we`ve spent a long time together with them. We have a close friendship with them, and support them like they are family members.
There won`t be any change with their positions nor will they promote with Super Junior. They won`t participate in Super Junior`s albums, nor take photos with us for Super Show posters. They will not have official promotions with Super Junior. I hope you all won`t misunderstand. We just… those two… we truly support them; I hope there aren`t any more misunderstandings. I think this talk started at last Super Show, when they stood with us for Super Junior stages. That did not have a different meaning. Doing Super Shows with them, and watching them wait for hours in the waiting room after performing only 3-4 songs made us sad. And knowing that they want to stand with us on stage instead of feeling lonely, we thought it`d be nice to bring them up for not all Super Junior stages but ones we interact with fans.
We hope you all will have the same feelings as us, and look at them with warm hearts, and cheer for them. They will not become official Super Junior members. I hope you support them as Super Junior M members. Singapore ELF, sorry to talk about this here. I hope you will all leave safely. Thank you.”
Many international fans that support all the members have showed their gratitude and pride in Eunhyuk accomplishing such speech.
