Who are the SS501 singers


SS501 is pronounce (double S 501). The SS stands for Super Singer OR Super Star. In Korea, 501 represent the five members as one. This translates to the super star/super singer of five members acting as a whole. I have also saw an interview that super singers is a future state, but I can't seem to remember which member said that.





The members of this band had to audition with DSP Entertainment to be part of the band. This is very different from the US where a band is form from a group of people playing an after school band together in their basement or garage. I think this is just a culture difference though.

Kim Hyun Joong is the oldest member of this band, hence the leadership role (another cultural etiquette). Born on June 6, 1986, he will be 23 this year. The next oldest member is Heo Young Saeng, followed by Kim Kyu Jong, Park Jung Min, and Kim Hyung Joon.


As of today, February 27, 2009, Kim Hyun Joong is acting in a Korean version of Hana yori Dango. Which literally translate to Boys Over Flower in English. If you are interested in watching Hyun Joong act, you can watch Boys Over Flower at mysoju.com and Park Jung Min is busy starring as Danny Zuko in a Korean version of the musical Grease. The Koreans really love Grease. I think they love it more than we do in America. ;) So where does this leave the other three singers? Heo Young Saeng is temporarily the leader of the remainder three boys (again because he is the next oldest). They have been promoting SS501 through various televised programming in Korea. The three of them released two songs/music video "UR Man" and "Because I Am Stupid". "Because I Am Stupid" is one of the songs in Boys Over Flower Original Sound Track (OST). Both songs can be found on the web. You can also view videos of all three members singing the song. Some people are even nice enough to subtitle it for you. I chose not to create a link for these songs because some videos may be violating copyright laws. I can differentiate which ones are so better save than sorry. Mianhamnida!

Oh! How can I forget,
Kim Hyung Joon and Kim Kyu Jong also sang Lonely Girl also an OST. This is one of my favorite song, but it is not as popular on the web. I wonder why?
