It annoys me that Henry’s and Zhou Mi’s talents are going to waste because they get thrown to the side until Super Junior-M promotes. When everyone thinks of Super Junior, they think of the original 13 members and often forget about these two. In fact, Henry and Zhou Mi were highly disliked when they were first added to Super Junior-M and hardcore fans of the original 13-membered Super Junior even formed an “Only 13″ campaign to show their disapproval of them. Even today, there are still some fans who have yet to accept Henry and Zhou Mi. It would seem as if some of these fans have problems adapting to changes but if that were really the case, then there would have been a ruckus when Sungmin and Eunhyuk were added to Super Junior-M, however, there wasn’t. If it was so simple for two members to be added to the sub-unit, then why is it so hard for two members to be added to the main group and given their well-deserved chance to shine?
If we be honest here, Henry’s and Zhou Mi’s talent can rival most of the members from Super Junior. Henry can speak four languages (English, Mandarin, Cantonese, and Korean), has an amazing voice, infectious dancing skills, and to top it off, he’s an expert on the piano and violin. He’s also got an all-around great personality and chubby cheeks you’ll die to squeeze. I would feel bitter that my talent is restraint to a sub group but Henry is always showing his endless support for Super Junior and cheering them on from the sidelines.

Zhou Mi is no less talented than Henry as he’s responsible for writing a number of lyrics for Super Junior-M’s albums including “Love Song“, “Marry U“, and “A Man In Love” from the group’s first Chinese album, “Me“, to name a few. He would be a great contribution to Super Junior seeing as how Koreans’ love for idols who write and compose has grown tremendously.
You’re probably wondering what Kibum has to do with all of this now. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this name, Kibum is apart of the original 13-membered Super Junior. He has been inactive from the group since 2008 after announcing that he wishes to pursue his acting career. Kibum is a cute, and funny guy but in terms of contributions to Super Junior, he hasn’t done very much. He left the group before they hit their peak in popularity (”Sorry Sorry“, 2009) but still receives attention because he is “a member of Super Junior”. He was added to the group as the “rapper” but Eunhyuk is the main rapper. His singing and dancing isn’t the best either. If we want to be kind, we can say that it is a fact that Kibum was an actor before a singer. It’s funny though, because although he left the group to focus on his acting career, we’ve seen the other members of Super Junior in more dramas than him. I find it unfair that Kibum shines without using effort, while Henry and Zhou Mi work hard to barely leave the darkness.
If Henry and Zhou Mi can’t join Super Junior, then I would like to see them participate in solo activities, or perform as a duo because their talent is too great to waste as guest members of Super Junior. However, I honestly don’t see what’s so difficult about allowing Henry and Zhou Mi to join Super Junior. These “13 Only” fans need to understand that they’re not going to lose anything if Henry and Zhou Mi joins the main group, in fact, Super Junior’s overall talent will only become greater. Besides, with Heechul having joined Kangin in the army, and Leeteuk to join the duo next year, Henry and Zhou Mi will be able to keep Super Junior going strong. Then when they all reunite, they can be one big happy family, like how they already were in case some fans didn’t see that.
