As compared to his 1st minialbum ‘Call Me’ day, it was noticeable that his dance and live vocal capabilities have indeed upgraded. K netizens started calling this the ‘WheeSung effect’. For his 2nd minialbum comeback, TaeGoon has undergone vocal classes under WheeSung.

TaeGoon said, “It was really a shame that the live performance for 1st minialbum was not good, so I would like to thank teach WheeSung with helping me with this 2nd minialbum. After taking vocal lessons all this while, I have much more confidence as a singer. I will continue to work hard. And I hope eveyone will support ‘SuperStar’.”

Those star designs on Taegoon’s costumes reminds me of YounHa

  1. what is this coming of age day thing?
    it took me so long to figure out the age system there so I’ll definitely need an explanation for this one.

  2. […] source: kbites […]

  3. Ver. C is the last version. However, a Japanese version and also a Chinese is also going to be released. The Japanese version includes DVD.

  4. i think i should start imitating GD’s style ㅋ ㅋ ㅋ -o-

  5. Wow, congrats. Good thing I’m waiting for all the repackaged albums to come out, and then to buy ’em.

  6. eileeennnnn loving ur Eunhyuk-ee avatar 😉

  7. SuJu congrtas!!!!!! Em, eileen what is Coming of Age day.. i read in Nate about this too yet i don’t understand 🙂

  8. congrats suju~~


  9. SM sure knows how to milk money with all of those repackaged albums. Biggest marketing scam I’ve ever seen….

  10. Taegoon impreved much,but it has to continue to improve! And yes is “Wheesung Effect xd” (remember that wheesung has been vocal trainer of big bang and sunny (snds))

  11. Imagine the even added sales for SuJu if fans (like me) weren’t expecting SM to release more repackaged albums. Once I pay off for school, money is going to that album.

    Taegoon now looks like a Wheesung 2.0. lol But his vocals have improved tremendously when I think back on how he sang only like 1/4 of ‘Call Me’ and always sounding so out of breath. He needs to continue working on his breathing technique if he’s going to be dancing and singing at the same time. I was pleasantly surprised when I watched his comeback.

  12. Congrats to SUJU!!

    Wow, more than 210000 copies sold, and that’s only in like, what, a little more than two months after their comeback? That’s so great!

    I just thought about this now, but you know how TVXQ is in the Guiness book for having the largest fanbase with 800000 people as well as being the most photographed celebrity with 500 million photos?
    SUJU should totally be in the guiness book for having the most amount of people in a group! That would be so awesome! I would totally buy that copy so I could keep their article!

    There’s another thing:

    In the article I read about TVXQ’s records, it said that TVXQ has 800000 fans in their official fanclub but I also heard on a program that Super Junior also has 800000 fans in their official fanclub, so shouldn’t they be in the record book too? Oh well, maybe I’m thinking too much…

    Okay, well back to the matter @ hand (I totally got sidetracked there ^_^’) congrats to SUJU on reaching 210000 album sales! I hope that the sales keep going up and more people buy the album as well!

    • i just wonder how much fans of tvxq those who are not in the official fanclub, its over a millions! im sure of it haha

      • there more, haha if 800k is true, ok TVXQ=800,000 / 5 is more than SUJU=800,000 / 13

  13. YAY for suju.. they sure get more album sale with their repackaged album

    really miss them, WG.. hurry up, comeback to korea
    I think kpop seems so empty without them

    taegoon you have improved alot thanx to Wheesung
