i am not a super junior fan but for many fans ..this is not the best moment..anyway he will be back and the fans will always be there for him..here is the story as published in ALLKPOP.COM
On this week’s broadcast of SBS’s ‘Inkigayo‘, Super Junior received their second consecutiveMutizen award for their latest hit, “Mr. Simple”.
This week’s win was a lot more meaningful for both the group and their fans, since it was the last music show for member Kim Heechul before he withdraws for army service on September 1st.
It seems that out of all the Super Junior members, leader Leeteuk was hit hardest by his emotions. Overwhelmed, Leeteuk’s tears flowed down uncontrollably as he gave his thank you speech and hugged Heechul tightly in his arms.
Leeteuk expressed, “Thank you to everyone who has given us love. Heechul is also leaving for the army soon, so thank you for giving us such a special gift.”
Heechul added, “This was my last stage before the army. It feels great to have been given such a special award before my leave. I’m always thankful to Jungsoo (Leeteuk) as well as the other members. For the fans who have loved us, I love you too. Thank you to all the staff of ‘Inkigayo’ who gave us so much of their time, and I’m especially thankful to all the managers who put up with my bad temper. I’m not very good at expressing myself, so I’ll just leave it here. I’ll come back safely, stay healthy!”

SBS Inkigayo makes another return on a Sunday afternoon, which just happens to be on Halloween, so fans can look forward to a series of top performances.
The Take 7 nominees were miss A (‘Breathe‘), 2PM (‘I’ll Be Back‘), Ga-In (‘Irreversible‘), 2NE1 (‘Go Away‘), B2ST (‘Soom‘), Supreme Team (‘Then Then Then‘), and SHINee (‘Hello‘). Due to special circumstances, Supreme Team and miss A were not able to appear on the show.
As always, there is only one trophy, and the winner of this week’s Mutizen went to Ga-In who couldn’t quite believe it as she stayed silent for a few seconds before speaking! But it was really long overdue for Ga-In who have topped various music charts in recent weeks. Congratulations!
But of course, there were several other notable performances from Psy, Rainbow, SG Wannabe, Eru, Nine Muses and Bohemian, so be sure to check them out!
2NE1 made their comeback earlier today on SBS Inkigayo with all three of their title tracks.
On the day of their comeback stage recording, 2NE1 had an interview with Money Today Star News prior to the recording. In the interview, the members shared how they felt about their comeback and the hardship of preparing for three title tracks.
Sandara said , “Because it’s our first full length album since our debut over 1 year ago, I’m thrilled. Although during rehearsal I was a bit nervous, but I’m trying not to be nervous. Right now I’m feeling really good.”
She continued, “I really wanted to come out fast because I felt that our fans have waited for us for a long time. Since we prepared 3 title tracks, we had to 3 times as much dance practice and 3 times as much live practice, so it was very difficult. However, I feel that we have that much more to show so we expect to really properly meet our fans… Each of the 3 title tracks have a different color… I am more excited than nervous at the thought of meeting our fans again. You will see choreography that looks like a scene at a party.”
CL shared, “Since the rehearsals, we’ve been preparing cheerfully. At first, I felt nervous while preparing for our first stage, but today, more than being nervous, I’m only trying to think of ways to make our stage more fun.”
Minzy also revealed her thoughts saying, “Because it’s our first stage in such a long time, I’m more excited than nervous. We tried really hard to completely fill our first broadcast… Since was have 3 title tracks, we really labored through practices. Now, it’s just a feeling of enjoyment for all the members.”
After recording, Park Bom added, “I feel it was an unsparing stage. Please continue to anticipate because we plan to continue to meet our fans through more wonderful stages.“
With 2NE1 having completed their impressive triple track comeback performance on SBS‘ ”Inkigayo,” they’ve become the topic of much sarcastic and cynical remarks, putting what seems like an adverse effect on the special treatment they received from SBS.
2NE1 performed three songs on the 12th as, not live, but pre-recorded stages. Many believe that as a rookie group, receiving the time to show three songs is ground-breaking enough, when other singers are only allowed to sing two songs for their comeback stages. It’s been standard for top stars only to perform three songs, and even then, it’s only a couple seconds-long intro, half of a follow-up track, and finally the title track performance.
In terms of comparisons, 2NE1 has already jumped the level of rock legend Seo Taiji. In 2008, Seo Taiji’s return to the industry after four years of absence only warranted a two track comeback stage. Even top stars like Rain, Hyori, and BoA only performed a couple seconds worth of a follow-up track.
2NE1, on the other hand, performed all three songs and took up nearly 15 minutes. Viewers were unsettled with the fact that other rookie groups with strong vocal talent were not able to perform because of their weaker agencies in comparison to YG Entertainment. Fans of the industry commented, “Was this a 2NE1 episode?” and “Is SBS Inkigayo just a show made to promote YG artists?”
Many are also of the opinion that performing all three tracks on the day of their comeback was a risky gamble and that it made them “boring” because everything was shown at once. 2NE1 received high reviews as soon as their songs were revealed and dominated online music charts. Still, viewers couldn’t help but be left feeling as if 2NE1’s entire success and comeback was shown on one stage in 11 minutes.
A music program is unfortunately not a personal concert, but an opportunity to give a close-up on a group’s particular skill or talent. Viewers concluded 2NE1’s comeback with the thought that if 2NE1 went as far as to receive criticism for receiving special treatment from SBS, they should have at least tried to offset the rather repetitive atmosphere with a ballad track like “I’m Hurt.”
Viewer message boards are covered with posts such as, “I wanted to see a more variety of artists but I had to watch one group for over 10 minutes.”
One agency representative commented, “In that time, four different rookie teams could have performed. No matter how big their agency is, this is just going too far,” while a broadcast representative stated, “They have forgotten that they are not just a music program but one with a music chart. They are losing their focus.”
This is not the first time SBS is under fire for giving special treatment to YG Entertainment artists. 2NE1’s debut stage was given double the time a standard rookie team is given, the same for G-Dragon’s solo stage as well. As if warming to such treatment, YG artists also do not perform on other company music programs. On the “Idol Big Show” program created by the producers of Inkigayo, they showed an even more blatant preference for YG artists, with over half the show being run by Big Bang and 2NE1.
