Super Junior Members Share Recent Group Photo, ‘Sorry Sorry’ Hits 75 Million Views On YouTube

Super Junior is one of the defining factors in the history of K-Pop. It must be a long time since fans see the members being in one frame. Recently, Super Junior members were reunited and display their unbreakable bond in the most recent group photo shared by each member.

It's not an easy thing to do for the whole personnel of Super Junior to gather in one place. But eventually, the whole gang, except Ryeowook and Kangin, managed to set aside their personal matters to just catch up and take a picture together. Ryeowook is still serving in the military, while Kangin recently received a court sentence for driving under influence.
