Rumors of Super Junior’s 3rd subunit called Super Junior China surfaced after Henry’s appearance on KBS Music Bank alongside the 13 Super Junior Members themselves. Yet the subgroup did not officially debut until April 8th of 2008 with the remake of Super Junior’s hit song “U”. From then on Super Junior M became one of the most in demand boyband in China.
Only 13 Campaign
In autumn of 2007, Henry was featured in the comeback song and music video of famous idol group Super Junior. While being dubbed as the “violin boy”, rumors of Henry becoming the 14th member of Super Junior soon followed. The rumors were later fueled by Henry’s fixed guest performers to Super Junior’s Comeback stages. As a protest from Super Junior’s Fanclub (ELF), the only 13 campaign was initiated. ELF began buying SM stocks, giving Henry the silent treatment during Super Junior Concerts, and sending cyber attacks directed towards Henry on SM’s official website and Super Junior’s official website. The attacks grew worse when news of Super Junior’s newest subgroup “Super Junior China” surfaced. Even after Henry’s debut ELF continues to protest by attacking Super Junior M’s official website the night it was established by Sohu.com.
Currently the only 13 campaign is slowly fading with older ELF members expressing their acceptance of Henry into Super Junior M. However younger ELF continues with their protest by either giving him the silent treatment during Super Junior concerts or chanting “Protect only 13” when Henry steps on stage.
