Aside from the massive fangirling over OH MY GODDDD THEY'RE ALMOST BACK
I am so extremely amused at K-pop's way of handling 'comebacks'.
In JE, what we get as teasers are email notifications from CD Japan, tiny little single covers from the official site and then the song played on a radio show a couple of days before the official PV and performance on Music Station.
In K-pop. Or at least SME. OR Super Junior, because they're apparently too big to have actual MV/song teasers, we get members hinting about the new album three months
in advance. Tons of rumours flying around about their new concept (zombies? vampires? pastry chefs?). Photos from a stylist that don't reveal too much. Fanclubs banding together to donate money for 'food and PR support'. Fan-made trailers. Suju trending on twitter about 298 times. Then a couple of official pictures released showing their va-va-voom new image. THEN a teaser that says NOTHING but throws shadows everywhere to the sound of epic movie-trailer-ish background music. Ending off with a deep voice saying "Super Junior. ComeBAAAAAAAAACK." (I'm going to be imitating this for months). A specific date and time set for the release of the new song: 10 May, 10am.
Oh, K-pop. It's like watching a summer blockbuster and afternoon soap opera all rolled into one.
That said. I AM STILL NOT OVER LIVE KILL'S ~*SHINY SUNGLASSES*~.
And I kind of like how it's just. Super Junior - The Fourth Album
. LMAO. We don't need names for our albums, bitches. (Actually, there are
names, only nobody ever notices because, you know. We don't need names bitches!!)
I should stop making fun of it. I love this fandom for all its drama, really ♥ I will love it even more if they'll stop blocking Hyukjae's face out.
...Also, I love how Donghae, Heechul and Teuk are tweeting back and forth. It reminds me of the JE Twitter fic that gothicauthor
and I wrote except that the guys are different. ad;slkj keep tweeting away, lovelies :D
