Having debuted in 2005, Super Junior is a veteran group who basically presided the second generation of K-pop. 12 years and counting, the timeless group is still as renowned as ever, with their impact on the K-pop scene remaining intact even in the midst of its respective members serving in the military.

Throughout the years, the members have been holding a prominent presence via both their solo and group activities. They keep taking the Hallyu scene by storm as they have been dominating every field, from their main vocation as idols, to their side occupations as actors, MCs, variety guests, and entertainers.

Most of the members have reunited six months before their 12th anniversary, which they celebrated by releasing their eighth studio album “Play” with their most mature concept to date. They later received the Legend Award at the 2017 Asia Artist Awards, which further proves that Super Junior’s idol status is being endlessly acknowledged.  It’s safe to say that these handsome men are aging like fine wine in all aspects, and they’re not going anywhere!

Without further ado, here are 11 times Super Junior proved their ultimate veteran status.

1. Leeteuk and Heechul, the variety kings

It is no secret that Leeteuk and Kim Heechul have a tremendous presence on variety shows. Heechul has been extremely active on variety shows after having achieved his military duties and is highly known for his savagery and wits onscreen, with “Knowing Bros” and “Life Bar” being some of his successful ongoing programs.
