July is a special month this year for K-Pop group Super Junior. Their long-awaited album with hit song 'Sexy, Free and Single' was released on July 1st, and you can watch the official music video here on Viki! And did you know that not one, but TWO Super Junior members have birthdays in July? Lee Teuk's birthday was July 1st; and Hee Chul turns 29 today, July 10th.
If there's one word to describe the SuJu boys, it's "multi-talented"! They can not only dance, sing, and model, but many members have also shown off their acting skills in K-Dramas & Variety Shows we all know and love. Heechul most recently acted in Loving You a Thousand Times, Shin Dong was in Doctor Champ, and Dong Hae was in It's Alright, Daddy's Daughter. Check out these shows, and enjoy a different side of your SuJu bias:
Poseidon (포세이돈) stars the handsome Choi Siwon, and follows the missions of the special forces unit of the Korean Coast Guard. Siwon showcased his ability as a dramatic actor and action star, investigating the crimes of the Korean mafia and fighting terrorism each day. This drama, a strong departure from his romantic debut in Spring Waltz, is available in the Americas.
