SUPER JUNIOR, who has been promoting their seventh regular album ‘MAMACITA’, will release the special edition of the seventh album, ‘THIS IS LOVE’ on October 27.
This album was specially produced to show the appreciation to the fans who showed their warm love and support for ‘MAMACITA’.

With the ‘MAMACITA’ album that has been released in August, SUPER JUNIOR took first place in the US Billboard World Album Chart, as well as first place in Asian album charts including Korea, Taiwan and Hong Kong.

With such hot responses, this special edition is also expected to gather a great deal of interest from music fans.
‘THIS IS LOVE’ included in the seventh album is an uptempo R&B track with impressive lyrics about simple, yet true love. Initially this track was included in the seventh album, but it was recomposed to the stage version based on the stage performance. ‘Hit Me Up’ adds jazz and pop on top of a hip hop rhythm where the refined groove and brilliant sound comes together to upgrade the charm of the song.
Furthermore, ‘Don’t Leave Me’ composed by Siwon and the composition group ICONIC SOUNDS perfectly mixed the urban beats with the acoustic guitar sounds. It was revealed in advance through the SUPER JUNIOR WORLD TOUR ‘SUPER SHOW 6’, gaining a lot attention. ‘(…ing)’, which starts with a dreamlike piano intro, has lyrics that expresses gulping down the tears but coldly turning away from a former lover who has contacted. It is a ballad that harmonizes the voices of KYUHYUN, RYEWOOK and YESUNG and was performed in ‘SUPER SHOW 5’ making it special since fans will be able to hear the vocal of YESUNG after a long time.
Meanwhile, SUPER JUNIOR is planning to present special performances for the two tracks of ‘THIS IS LOVE’ and ‘Evanesce’ through music shows.
