Super Junior has set a new record by being number one on a music chart in Taiwan for 100 weeks in total. The title song “Mr. Simple,” from their fifth album, has been on the TOP 100 chart of the popular online music site, “KKBOX.” On April 29, the chart for the fourth week of April was revealed and it showed that Super Junior was at number one once again. They have been number one for 37 weeks consecutively.
Additionally, Super Junior claimed the number one spot for 63 weeks consecutively, from the first week of June 2010 to the second week of August 2011. This was for the title song, “BONAMANA,” from their fourth album. First, they set a record by being the first to be number one for the longest time on “KKBOX” chart. Then, they set a new record by passing along the number one spot to their other song, “Mr. Simple,” which resulted in Super Junior being number one for 100 weeks.
