Kim Heechul proves his worldwide appeal with new song “Old Movie”!

Super Junior’s Kim Heechul may not take over the entire universe anytime soon, but with his new song, he continues to prove that he is a global star.

The Super Junior’s member makes his debut as a solo artist after 14 years in the business with his first digital single “Old Movie” on April 24. An authentic, rock ballad with melancholic and sensible sound, the single and its music video capture the emotions of two lovers breaking up. Fellow Super Junior members Donghae and Shindong helped their hyung with Donghae working with him in writing the lyrics and Shindong directing the music video.

After its release, “Old Movie” went on to secure the number one spot in seven countries on iTunes charts. It led the charts in countries such as El Salvador, Saudi Arabia, Hong Kong, Macau, and the Philippines — once again proving the unwavering popularity of Heechul and Super Junior worldwide.
