[News] Behind the Story of Super Junior's Angel

Dance group Suju's struggle in recording a ballad.

Super Junior's members Eunhyuk, Sungmin, Donghae, Ryeowook and Kyuhyun recorded the song "Angel" for 15 hours. The song is featured in "Haru," a drama aimed at promoting Korea which was produced by the Korea Tourist Service and Jaeil production. The music director Oh Joonsung who finished recording the OST of "Haru" said, "we were worried that we might not be able to finish it. However, their passion made the work delightful."

The work was rigorous as they were stuck in the recording studio for 15 hours to finish one song. Sungmin even showed signs of fatigue as he had recently worked a busy schedule. Also, it was difficult to decide where the harmonization would occur as the song was unlike the songs they were used to typically.

"It was the worst. Thankfully, as time went by, harmony between the members were mixed well that a great song was created. Ryeowook's neutral yet sensuous voice was especially excellent. Eunhyuk's rap skills were really great."

In fact, the reason Super Junior pushed back their vacation to Italy in the beginning of September to pour their passion into the "Haru" OST was because of the song "Angel." Super Junior who had asked to sing the song personally felt the charms of ballad through the hit OST producer Oh Joonsung who had previously worked on drama "Boys Before Flowers," "Prosecutor Princess," "My Girl." Eunhyuk wanted everyone to take interest in the song by saying, "recently, Shindong hyung revealed his girlfriend on Twitter. We are proudly revealing Angel."

Web drama "Haru" which was produced to promote Korea stars TVXQ's member U-Know Yunho, Han Chae Young, Lee Dahae, Big Bank, Park Siwoon and many other stars. The song "Angel" has been released and is currently receiving lots of popularity.
