Super Junior-D&E made their comeback with a new mini-album in a year and five months.
Their fourth mini-album BAD BLOOD, released on September 3, topped iTunes charts in 25 countries. Since forming a unit in 2011 with the release of a digital single, Super Junior-D&E, has presented new music and performances with every album. The group expressed their feelings about their comeback through their label.
Q1. How do you feel about coming back after a year and five months?
Donghae: It took a bit longer because we wanted to make an album that everyone can satisfy. I’m so glad that I got to greet you with the new song “B.A.D.”
Eunhyuk: I want to say thank you to the fans who waited for us. I’m already excited to show you a new side of me.
Q2. What kind of song is the title track “B.A.D”?
Donghae: It’s based on an electronic hip-hop genre that expresses the beautiful image of a woman through the irony of “BAD.”
Eunhyuk: It’s an addictive song that makes you hum the song after just one listen.
Q3. The ‘killing point’ choreography we should look for on the “B.A.D” stage?
Eunhyuk: The part where we pull our thumb down in line with the lyrics “B.A.D Bad Bad Bad Bad.“
Q4. What’s the distinction in the 4th mini album BAD BLOOD?
Donghae: We always put effort in showing better visuals and music. This album also fully contains what we want to talk about and express.
Q5. Besides the title track, what’s your favorite song?
Donghae: I love all five tracks in the album.
Eunhyuk: I like all non-title tracks, but if I have to pick one, I will go with “Contact” with a refreshing tempo. I chose this with the heart of wanting to “contact” my fans asap.
Q6. To fans, Eunhyuk is “HIP” and Donghae is “modern.” However, with this album, you guys took each other’s style.
Donghae: It was a new styling that I have always wanted to try, so there was no pressure or any particular difficulties. I had fun filming because I thought the fans would like it.
Eunhyuk: It was a very fresh and interesting experience.
Q7. What new genre do you want to try in the future?
Donghae: One of the biggest things about Super Junior-D&E is that we don’t stick to one genre and keep making challenges. We will challenge any genre or style without limits, so please look forward to it.
Eunhyuk: Maybe we can try gukak (Korean traditional music) next time (laughs).
