Meet the 7 Members of K-pop Group Super M

On October 4th when the clock struck midnight, South Korean entertainment company SM Entertainment released the long-awaited music video of their new group Super M. Since their debut, they’ve performed on Ellen, debuted number one on the Billboard 200 album charts and even set North American tour dates.

But who are they? At a press conference at Capitol Records, CEO Lee So Man said that this group would be called “The Avengers” of K-pop. Why the Avengers of K-pop you ask? Because unlike other groups in K-pop, every member in this group is in fact already a member of an existing SM Entertainment group.  Still confused? Well, let me start by explaining who each member is!

  1. 1. Baekhyun

    Age: 27

    Debut: 2011

    Baekhyun is the oldest member and the leader of Super M. He is more commonly known as the lead singer of the all-time, powerhouse boy group, Exo. Exo has gone on tour in the US, performed at the Winter Olympics, and even topped Forbes Korea’s Power Celebrity list for two years in a row! His voice is arguably one of the most powerful voices in SM Entertainment. Don’t believe me? Just listen to his solo song Un Village. I promise you’ll fall 100% in love with his crooning vocals.
