Korean idols Super Junior took the top spot on two televised music shows over the weekend, scoring wins with follow-up track “No Other” from their fourth repackaged album.
The boys claimed their first win on KBS’ Friday music program “Music Bank” with their second single “No Other” against Korean rapper MC Mong’s “Hurts Like Death” and won the Mutizen Award on SBS’ Sunday show “Inkigayo.”
“We are thankful for our win. We will work hard to become a better Super Junior,” the members of Super Junior said in their acceptance speech, adding that dedicate the prize to fellow bandmate Kang-in who entered the military last week as part of fulfilling the country’s two-year mandatory military services.
The boy band had released a fourth repackaged album on June 28 featuring 11 songs from their original fourth record as well as four new tracks. The group’s latest single “No Other” was written by leader Lee Teuk and Super Junior subgroup Super Junior-M member Henry.
Super Junior, a thirteen-man band, made their debut in 2005 with their first full-length album “SuperJunior05 (TWINS).” They are known as one of the most popular K-pop acts in the country and throughout Asia with their hit albums “Don’t Don” and “Sorry Sorry.”
They are gearing up for their performance at the “Incheon Korean Music Wave 2010″ on August 29 with other top K-pop artists.
