Key events

Super Junior originally debuted as a group with a graduation rotation system, however after the addition of Kyuhyun in 2006 this was abandoned.

If the rotational concept had continued, it is possible the members of SHINee would have actually become members of Super Junior.

There are a number of sub-units (small groups made up of members of the larger group) of Super Junior. The first of these was Super Junior K-R-Y which consists of Kyuhyun, Ryeowook, and Yesung and debuted November 5th 2006.

In February 2007, the second sub unit debuted consisting of Leeteuk, Heechul, Kangin, Sungmin, Shindong and Eunhyuk. Named Super Junior-T, the group concept was performing trot songs (a style of early Korean pop music).

In March 2008, Super Junior-M was formed as a Mando sub unit (they perform in Chinese) for Super Junior.  The unit was made up of Hankyung, Siwon, Donghae, Kyuhyun, Ryeowook. Henry and Zhou Mi were added just to the Super Junior-M sub unit.

On 5th June 2008, the members of SuperJunior-T and Yesung formed a Subunit Super Junior-H. The sub units have allowed members to continue promoting whilst other members pursue their own individual activities.

In 2012 Kibum announced his temporary leave from the group to pursue an acting career.

In October 2009, Kangin was charged with a DUI and hit-and-run after crashing into a parked taxi holding three passengers. Two months later he announced his hiatus to fulfil his 2 year mandatory military service.

In December 2009, Hankyung filed for contract termination from SM Entertainment, claiming that the provisions of his contract were unlawful, harsh, and against his rights. In 2010 he won his lawsuit (having also had a solo release in this time) and in 2011 SM officially announced his departure from the group.

In December 2006 Donghae and Eunhyuk released their first song as a duo.

Kangin enlisted for his mandatory military service on July 5, 2010 and completed his service on April 16, 2012.

Heechul enlisted for his mandatory military service on September 1, 2011 and completed his service on August 30, 2013.

Leeteuk enlisted for his mandatory military service on October 30, 2012.

Yesung enlisted for his mandatory military service on May 6, 2013.
