SS501 (Pronounced “Double - S - 5-0-1” or in Korean “Touble - S~eu - O-Gong-Il”) is a 5 member vocal group under Daeseong (DSP) Entertainment. They debuted in June 2005 with their first single ‘경고 (Warning)’, recieving a lot of positive feedback even before its release. They followed up in late 2005 with their second single titled “Snow Prince” that thrust them into national and international success.

Since then, SS501 has transformed themselves into more than just an average boyband; the group between all members have worked in various fields in the entertainment industry. SS501 has participated as whole or individually in many CFs (commercials), TV Dramas,, Variety shows, as well as handling various MC jobs in a variety of popular shows, DJing and VJing also is something familiar to many of the members. Written by Genesis at Soompi forums.Their success in other fields of the industry does not stop there; their unique voices attracted some to the point in which they were casted as voiceovers for an animated movie. Members such as Kim Hyeonjung and Pak Jungmin have been chosen as lead actors in a major musical ‘Grease’ and a popular Drama entitled ‘Boys Over Flowers’ in late 2008; a drama famous for its previous Taiwanese and Japanese counterparts.

SS501 had to suspend activities for the greater part of the 2006 year due to member Heo Yeongsaeng’s vocal chord surgery in which he needed time to fully recover from,. They continued holding fanmeets however, and in mid-late 2oo6 the group would hold their first ever Concert Tour, ‘Step Up’.
Following later that year they were able to finally release their first full-length album titled ‘ST.01. NOW’.

In 2007 the group would make its debut in Japan. They debuted with the releaseof their first single ‘Kokoro’, a single that was released in 5 different versions simutaneously,; one regular edition, and five limited editions that included a feature solo song by each member. Despite much critisism, the single debuted on the Oricon Charts (Japan’s largest music Chart) in the #5 position— the first of its kind, a foreign rookie group reaching a top 5 position at debut! They followed up with a second single entitled ‘Distance~君とのキョリ’’and a full-length self-titled Japanese album closly after which also reached top ten rankings within the first week of sales. Pak Jeongmin would earn himself a spot on a Japanese drama show; another first, for a member of a rookie Korean group to take part of something of this nature so quickly after entering the Japanese music scene. This was due to Jeongmin’s quick study, for his Japanese skills impressed many within such a short time frame.

After concentrating on their individual activities, the group made a comeback and released their second mini album titled Rebirth, with the limited edition being released on October 20, 2009 and the normal edition on 22 October. The limited special edition album included two posters and a 100 page photo diary. Their comeback song “Love Like This” was well received, winning two Music Bank awards and one Inkigayo Mutizen in November. The group ended promotions for the album on November 29, 2009.
On August 1, 2009, the group started their first Asia tour,] visiting Seoul, Tokyo, Taiwan, Shanghai, Thailand and Hong Kong and ended with two encore concerts in Seoul last February 27th and 28th.

23th of May, one of their mini-album tracks titled Love Ya! was leaked onto the radio - MBC’s Chin Chin(similar to the situation with Love Like This back in October). Not long afterwards, the teaser for the comeback track was released. On May 24th, 2010, due to the leaks, DSP Media decided to release SS501’s new mini-album Destination online, which contains six tracks in total, including the title track Love Ya, Let Me Be The One, Crazy 4 U and Forever (Lyrics by Young Saeng). The group had scheduled to make their comeback after 7 months on the 4th of June on KBS Music Bank and 5th of June on Music Core. They are planned to promote their song for 3 weeks.

SS501 continues to make their mark wherever they go. They had recieved not only great
success and followers in Korea, but largely in Japan, and all corners of Asia, not to mention
the large group of international fans that span all corners of the globe. SS501 has been
recieved well, and it is the hope of themselves and of their fans that they will continue
their climb in the musical industry and reach success as the 5 stars they are, and become
the one entity of greatness in the future they have strived for since debut.
