Super Junior is described as a contradictory group. In other words, Super Junior is a dance group consisting of sub-unit group that sings ballad and also another unit group that sings trot songs. Some of the members perform in the drama and entertainment program more than on the music stage. However, each one of the members makes synergic effect if they perform in one team of Super Junior.

Friend: not a family, but sometimes even closer than a family. You can confess your secret and ask for an open counseling to your friend. You call your friend when you are bored, sad, happy, or even when you are hungry. The more you talk with your best friend, the more the happiness. 

* Mean of Friend

 How many friends do you have on your facebook or kakaotalk? There is an interesting statistic. The average number of friends on kakaotalk is 65 while the average number of friends on facebook is 229. Are you close to this number? For kakaotalk, you and your friend know each other’s phone number. However, you don’t have to be acquainted with someone to be a ‘friend’ on facebook. That must be the reason why one has more friends on facebook than on kakaotalk. Then, there is another statistic that when one’s friends on facebook are less than 450, one is happy. However, when there are more, one is not really happy. Facebook friends less than 450 means that one is acquainted with most of them, while more than 450 means one barely knows most of them. It’s stressful to expose your privacy to people you don’t know. Hmmm...Let’s see. I have 500 and a bit more friends on kakaotalk and a bit more than 600 friends on facebook. Am I enjoying a happy SNS lifestyle? Hmmm…I’ll have to think again.

* Cyber friends vs. Reality friends

Well, I’ve been talking about friends made from smart phones and didn’t talk about the real friends. On SNS, you converse with people and share news minute by minute. However, there would probably be less than 10 friends whom you can actually meet, eat good food together, and play with. A few kakaotalk messages and comments on facebook or twitter don’t really get people any friendlier. Yes, you might not have enough time since you go to school, study, and go to extracurricular study. You also might be envious to see people befriended with all fellow students in school. However, I believe that having one or two ‘real’ friends is better, even if you are fed up with such statement. You don’t need all of your classmates to know your secret. You only need few friends who know all of your secrets and are out to help you. 

 There is a Hindu proverb that says ‘we all become the people we like.’ They are the people you spend most of your time with, so you ought to become like them. And you hang out with them because they have similar thought, preference for girl, favorite color and product, and taste for food.

Songs to listen with your friends.

▼ Shin sung Woo 'A thing that can be said friend'

▼ Girls' Generation 'Smile'

▼ Small Acacia Band 'Friend'


▼ Kim Dong Ryul 'We'

▼ Rainbow 'Cosmic Girl'

▼ 15& 'I Dream'

It’s good to have a lot of friends but it’s more important to have a friend with good taste and heart. If you hang out with bullies, one day you’ll have to be one. It’s horrendous to be bullied but being a bully is just as awful. Don’t you want friends who have good humor, who share happiness and struggle together, who have pleasant smiles and languages and who know how to dress without expensive clothes? Draw your ideal friend and become one. It might take a while, but then you’ll have friends who are similar to you.
